The preview of "Romantic Modernist: The Life and Work of Norman Jaffe, Architect" at the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, New York, attracted a crowd with a keen interest in the archival photos, renderings, drawings, models, and furniture related to his signature Long Island beach houses. "Jack Youngerman: Folding Screen Paintings" opened the same night.

Czeching Out DUMBO
Shoe designer Christian Louboutin went right for the red-lacquered chairs. Baby furniture's David Netto just had to have that chrome-trimmed table. We don't know what caught the attention of designer Paul Siskin, apartmenttherapy.com's Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, or the other 150 guests at the recent opening of Prague Kolektiv, a modernism gallery in DUMBO. Could have been the BrouCzech beer.
5. Prague Kolektiv's Barton Quillen and painter Ahn Duong.
6. An enameled barber's chair, circa 1960.
7. From Czecho-deco to Communist chic.
8. Talking Czech (design).
