Artist Charles Green Shaw's Typewritten Lists of Grievances


Are you finding yourself with a list of qualms now that it’s summer — or now that it’s Sunday? Are you grumpy but frankly hilarious? Then you may find solace in these snooty, tongue-in-cheek lists by American abstract artist Charles Green Shaw, wherein the painter airs his grievances with the world, regrets the things he never does, or recounts a ‘bohemian’ evening in list form. These artifacts are gleaned from a collection of lists and inventories at the Archives of American Art, and also available in a book to that effect.
