Painter's Table: Top 10 Best Posts, April 2011

Posted: 05/13/11 02:09 PM ET

Artist interviews were popular in April, particularly those between artists - painters talking to painters. Interviews in a variety of formats are some of the most interesting posts on art blogs these days. Some artist blogs focus specifically on interviews. Gorky's Grandaughter, a video blog, records studio visits, two others (standard) interview and Studio Critical pose a standard set of questions to each artist. Painting Perceptions and Henri Art Magazine are two blogs that offer longer format interviews. In late March, Painters' Table launched a section called Artist to Artist specifically to highlight blogs where artists interview each other.

Of course, there were many other great posts including exhibition reviews and commentary - a lively group as always.

Our top ten posts from April are below. Find more everyday on - the magazine of the painting blogosphere.

Hofmann gives a first hand account of the art world at the time and describes how he came to feel that by remaining a painter he was taking up a "Romantic" position. He concludes with a generous explanation of his studio practice.
