Amy Werbel, professor of the History of Art, has published an article, “John Haberle’s A Bachelor’s Drawer: Censorship, Geologic Time, and Truth,” in the Metropolitan Museum Journal. The article looks at the 1890–94 painting—which features ticket stubs, playing cards, other items that would seem to denote a turn of the century bachelor’s desk— and the artist himself.
The Metropolitan Museum Journal is a blind, peer-reviewed scholarly journal published annually that features original research on the history, interpretation, conservation, and scientific examination of works of art in the museum’s collection. Its scope encompasses the diversity of artistic practice from antiquity to the present day.
