shocks presents ART DADDY

From our family to yours, an ongoing art-historical conversation with our very own Art Daddy, Harrison Tenzer. Hot takes on “high art”, Shocks of Art, or … something like that.

Harrison Tenzer is the head of online sales at Sotheby’s, as well as an art specialist and Brooklyn-based queer artist. 


What better place to start? Pun fully-intended, we present to you a highlight reel of the nose as told through the ages of fine art. Power and beauty – the metaphoric focal point of many artworks featuring the nose (unsurprisingly, a cannon of power that is largely dominated by powerful white males). 

What can we learn through the stories told (and omitted) about our most obscure and least-understood sense organ?
