November 21, 1999 | SUZANNE MUCHNIC, Suzanne Muchnic is The Times' art writer
Roger Fry is back and so is Bloomsbury. Britain's impresario of Modern art and his creative milieu--the legendary group of artists and writers who plied their trades and led famously unconventional lives in the Bloomsbury district of central London during this century's first three decades--are being dusted off, reconsidered and formally presented in two exhibitions that add up to a major event. "Art Made Modern: Roger Fry's Vision of Art," at the Courtauld Gallery (to Jan.

April 2, 2000 | REGINA MARLER, Regina Marler is the author of "Bloomsbury Pie: The Making of the Bloomsbury Industry" and is editor of "Selected Letters of Vanessa Bell."
No one visiting "The Art of Bloomsbury," at the Huntington Gallery until April 30, will hear the jeers of critics or the shocked gasps that greeted many of these paintings when they were first exhibited. In this elegant San Marino setting, most of the works will seem typical of English painting in the last two centuries: thoughtful, skillful, unassertive.

"Bob Law: Castle XXXIX, 1976," at Redling Fine Art, is less an exhibition than an extended proposition. It introduces to L.A. the late British artist's work, but more so his thought. The show contains just one painting that is characteristic of works Law began making in 1960--not coincidentally, the year after a large presentation of American abstraction (Guston, Kline, Newman, Rothko, et al) at the Tate. Law's canvas, roughly a five-foot square, is painted white, with a line, like an internal frame, drawn in ballpoint pen just inside the perimeter.

"He died peacefully, like an image which slowly fades away," Dr. Francisco Burgos told reporters in Malaga, Spain, near Brenan's village home of Alhaurin el Grande. Brenan had been in delicate health since 1982 when he broke his hip. "I do nothing. I do not write and cannot read.

Edward Otero of Del Mar was arraigned in U.S. District Court in San Francisco Tuesday after his arrest in the Bay Area a day earlier in connection with an alleged large-scale, marijuana-smuggling operation.

The endearing Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens inaugurates a new exhibition pavilion with a show that is both a revelation and in present context, rather daring. Everybody knows the San Marino institution's central dedication is historic Anglo-American art, literature and botany. Its concern with the transitional Craftsman movement has been its closest approach to modernism.
