Victor Ries at 100



I am right now helping to make this a longer, feature documentary, working with a group of volunteers, supporting Bill Chayes. Victor Ries was for some time an artist in-residence at the MAGNES.

Dear Mr. Leventhal:

I was thrilled to find your documentary-in-progress on Victor Ries, and would like to get in touch with both you and him, if he is still alive.

I am an art historian and PhD candidate at Yale University, and I am working on a dissertation about women potters in the 1950s, one of whom is Marguerite Wildenhain, with whom Victor Ries worked closely from 1949-1952 at Pond Farm.

Please contact me at your earliest convenience; I have plans to come to the Bay Area at the end of this month.

Best wishes,

Jennifer Sorkin
