The real world: Jerome Liebling’s works celebrate the strength of the everyday Mark Feeney Boston Globe July 13, 2008
“The occasion of the Yale University Art Gallery’s ‘Everyday Monuments: The Photographs of Jerome Liebling’ (not a bad title either) is Yale’s recent purchase of more than 40 Liebling prints. So let’s hear it for pride of ownership.
“Liebling is 84. Looking at the dozen vintage prints at Smith from the late ’40s, one can see how far he’s come as an artist. He was good then – Liebling shot what may be his most famous image, ‘Butterfly Boy,’ in 1949 (it’s in the Yale show) – but his work is so much richer and more variegated now. Getting older is not the same thing as getting wiser. It has been for Liebling, though.”
