San Francisco

Kent Addison and Manes Lichtenberg

Maxwell Galleries

Mr. Addison exhibits ostentatious, decorative novelties of incredible vulgarity. Handsome pieces of natural-state chalcedony, amethyst and pyrite are encumbered by trite garish configurations of highly polished brass-plated steel often delineating some “cute” stylistic allusion to the shape of a fish or an animal. These are commercial trivia for the gift shop market, as are also the pretty little tourist pictures of Paris street scenes and French rural landscapes by Manes Lichtenberg.
