Historical Horology for September 20, 2015



This week’s edition of Historical Horology is something a bit out of left field, as it focuses around art and an artist.  When it comes to watches (or clocks) in art, you probably think about the Dali melting clocks.  Well, far less bizarre, but no less awesome, is this art (above) by Gerald Murphy.

In this article over at Quill & Pad, Elizabeth Doerr covers how she ran across this art in Dallas, and the research that she did on the artist and the work he created.  It is an interesting read, and one I won’t try to rehash here.  Just head on over and check the article out.  As an added bonus, there is a video on the page showing an animated version of the painting which is quite sharp.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The WWR Team
