|5||Examples of Carol Robinson Piano Performances
Piano rolls were made from performances of famous musicians. A pianist would sit at a specially designed recording piano, and the pitch and duration of any notes played would be either marked or perforated on a blank roll, together with the duration of the sustaining and soft pedal. Reproducing pianos also re-created the dynamics of a pianist's performance by means of specially encoded control perforations placed towards the edges of the roll. Reproducing pianos were said to very accurately reproduce a pianistís original performance. Many famous pianists made recordings, including Debussy playing Debussy. Carol Robinson made several of these recordings.
|6||Gardner Rea Cartoons
Many of (Oscar) Gardner Rea's works appeared in the New Yorker magazine during the 1920 and 1930's, and earlier in Judge and Life (the humor magazine, not the later picture magazine). Rea Irvin, the long time de facto "art director" of the New Yorker, drew in a similar style to Gardner Rea; and the editors of the magazine (for reasons apparently unknown) are said to have sometimes credited one for the otherís work.† I have yet to find a definitive catalog of Gardner Rea's work. Should any of the works shown in this album not be that of Gardner Rea, I would appreciate being informed.
Two Life magazine covers in my personal collection when offered for sale were attributed to Gardner Rea, when in actuality they appear to have been by the artist Rae Irwin.† More than two years after I purchased them, and had had the magazines conserved and framed, I happened to notice that they were signed "Rea Irvin."† While they are not included in this album, their style are so similar to that of Gardner Rea's of the same period, it is easy to see how the work of the two could be confused.
