The Flatiron by Edward J. Steichen
1904, printed 1909 

Steichen added color to the platinum print that forms the foundation of this photograph by using layers of pigment suspended in a light-sensitive solution of gum arabic and potassium bichromate. Together with two variant prints in other colors, also in the Museum’s collection, “The Flatiron” is the quintessential chromatic study of twilight. Clearly indebted in its composition to the Japanese woodcuts that were in vogue at the turn of the century and in its coloristic effect to the “Nocturnes” of Whistler, this picture is a prime example of the conscious effort of photographers in the circle of Alfred Stieglitz to assert the artistic potential of their medium.


Steichen and Stieglitz selected this photograph for inclusion in the “International Exhibition of Pictorial Photography” held at the Albright Art Gallery (now the Albright-Knox Art Gallery) in Buffalo, New York, in 1910. The exhibition of six hundred photographs represented the capstone of Stieglitz’s efforts to promote Pictorialist photography as a fine art.

Lana Sutra for United Colors of Benetton by Erik Ravelo
The global brand has successfully fulfilled an experimental project, created by a young Cuban artist at Fabrica, Erik Ravelo.
On the 6th of September of 2011, UCB hosted the simultaneous event in their three concept stores in Istanbul, Milan and Munich, as well as on the web for worldwide audiences, as they presented a series of 15 art installations signed by the artist, symbolizing the brand’s DNA spirit of unity in diversity.
The 15 installations of Lana Sutra are created as homage to the spirit of love that embodies our connection as one race and our strength as one unit, as well it also dedicated to the desire for an equal and sharing society. The project’s visuals are based on the famous Indian literature Kama Sutra, with the word Kama replaced by Lana, the Italian and Spanish word for wool, and sutra that means a thread which unites.
The installations represent sculptures of human couple that are made of clay and colorful woolen threads, uniting them and merging the bodies one to another as a symbol of unity when the different colors meet, which the colors itself are chosen from the brand’s shades of Fall Winter 2011-2012 collection ready to purchase at UCB local stores worldwide.
