1891 events

  • The New York Etching Club held its annual exhibition in February at the National Academy of Design. The club published an exhibition catalogue in a new format including five original etchings that were accompanied by photogravures of the artists who made them. In addition, an essay by James D. Smillie, entitled "Some Observations," discussed among several topics the collapse of the commercial market for etchings. A pen and ink drawing by Charles A. Platt was used as a frontispiece, and an occasional touch of bright red printing ink was used in the catalogue. The event marked the return to annual exhibitions accompanied by a catalogue.

Feb. 13th 1891

There were present at a meeting held in the Studio of Mr Carlton.T.Chapman at above date:

Mssrs Hent Farrer, Thos.W.Wood, James.D.Smillie, Carlton.T.Chapman, J.C.Nicoll, Otto H.Bacher, and Alexander Schilling:___ No quorum being present, it was decided to Transact such business as was most urgent, such action to be subject to ratification at a subsequent meeting of the Club.

The sentiment of the members present was unanimously in favor of holding another exhibition in 1892.

It was thought that the interest taken in the present exhibition of the Club, amply warranted the taking of such a step. It was further agreed that only by bringing before the eyes of the public work of a high order, (and of a purely artistic nature at that,) could the aforesaid public be brought to a just appreciation, of the better and more subtle qualities in the art of etching __ after a general

discussion of this subject in which all present joined; it was then moved by Mr Nicoll and seconded by Mr Wood that the President be

authorized to apply for space in the American Water Color exhibition to be held in 1892, upon the same terms as heretofore.

The President then appointed Messrs Nicoll and Smillie a committee to audit the Treasures accounts.

The following Bills were favorably passed upon: Messrs Kimmel&Voigt for printing of Etchings for /91 Catalogue $118.75. The Moss Engraving Co for Photo. Eng - 8.75 W. Kurtz for Halftone portrait’s 62.00 A. J. Borst for frames and mats18.90. The bill of Devinne&Co for printing and binding the catalogue having gone astray and no duplicate being at hand Mr Smillie volunteerd giving

the items. The total being about $191.00, this too was favorably passed.

The Treasurer then gave an approximate total of the cash available and it was not sufficient at this time to pay all bills, he was authorized to use his discretion in making payments __

After which the meeting Adjourned ____

Questions & Answers

do you think it's worthwhile in the long term to study the effects and possibilities of nanotechnology on viral treatment?

absolutely yes
how to know photocatalytic properties of tio2 nanoparticles...what to do now

it is a goid question and i want to know the answer as well

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
in general
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
On having this app for quite a bit time, Haven't realised there's a chat room in it.
what is biological synthesis of nanoparticles

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.

what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
how did you get the value of 2000N.What calculations are needed to arrive at it
