Humbly wishing to remain anonymous, a friend of the CSF has pledged to match all unrestricted donations to the Carl Schmitt Foundation up to $5,000 prior to June 30, 2015. Give in the next month and you will double the gift of this generous friend!
Transfixed at a recent exhibition of Carl Schmitt oils, could this be our “mystery” donor?
Your gift will help us get such beautiful paintings ready for our next exhibit.
Our goals are lyric, our needs epic, but the fruits of your generosity can truly be dramatic. We have a few action items at the top of the list.
Our website is hopelessly stuck in the ’90s—please help us click and drag it into the current millennium!
State-of-the-art when it was debuted back in the early 2000s, the CSF website hasn’t changed much in over 10 years.
Hidden away in the archives, piles of pastels and sketches lie closed up in portfolios, awaiting framing. Dulled by dust, vivid oils call for cleaning. One of our most cherished paintings, Boy with Cello, now shrouded in gauze, awaits release. Your gift will ensure these works get the care they need to be exhibition-ready.
Carl Schmitt considered Boy with Cello (1931) one of his finest works. This beloved painting was recently returned to the Foundation’s gallery in Silvermine for an urgently-needed restoration.
Long-term, research continues on the catalogue raisonné, and the definitive biography of Schmitt’s rich life and career. And Carl Schmitt, Jr. is hard at work on a full-length treatment of his father’s aesthetic thought.
Even if you are unable to give at this time, you can still support our mission for free! “Like” our Facebook page, subscribe to our e-newsletter, and share our posts with your friends and relations.
Friday Madonna, 1930, oil on canvas, 42 x 35 in.
A wonderful re-imagining of the familiar Madonna and Child from the same period as Boy with Cello. Another major work deserving of a complete restoration.
If you enjoy this blog and have been enriched by the art and life of Carl Schmitt, now is the time to pitch in, as every dollar you give will be worth double to the CSF.
