Almost nine summers ago, I met the painter Chris Martin, known for his colorful, often glittery abstract works, at a group show at a rented house in Bridgehampton, N.Y. Martin’s contribution — an ocean-blue background with vibrant orange shapes that looked like either reeds growing out of a salt marsh or alien spaceships catching fire as they entered the earth’s atmosphere — was hung outside, on the house’s porch. When I asked him about this placement, he told me, in so many words, that paintings are tough and can handle more than one might expect, even exposure to the elements. It was a brief encounter that has stuck with me all these years. But I’m especially thinking of it again now, with a new online group show that Martin has curated for Timothy Taylor gallery called “Painting the Essential: New York, 1980-Present.” Largely made up of works by those in the painter’s milieu — including his former roommate Katherine Bradford and his friend Amy Sillman, who both share Martin’s penchant for lush colors and outré scene-setting — the show maps an alternate history of New York’s art scene, in which painting, a medium that is perpetually falling out of style, argues that it’s tougher than whatever we can throw at it. “Painting the Essential: New York, 1980-Present” is on view online through June 20, timothytaylor.com.

A Perfumer’s Plant-Infused Skin and Fabric Sanitizer

Fueguia 1833 was founded in Buenos Aires in 2010 by the perfumer Julian Bedel, who named his company in tribute to an era of botanic discovery, when Charles Darwin arrived in Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego, near Patagonia — the same region where Bedel sustainably bottles many of his brand’s rare, natural ingredients. In light of the pandemic, Bedel has now formulated a skin sanitizer — part of his new BioActives line — that incorporates 45 medicinal plants in a base of 70-percent alcohol, chlorine dioxide (a virucide) and soap. It feels less sticky than Purell, and smells of verbena and eucalyptus. The new offerings also include a dual skin and textile spray that can be used on fabrics in the home and blends those same extracts with a range of Fueguia’s limited-edition fragrances. I’ve been misting the peppery Ett Hem version around my apartment, partly out of self-preservation and partly out of pure pleasure, but also to maintain a much-needed sense of routine. Fueguia 1833 textile spray, from $93, and skin sanitizer, $29, fueguia.com.

Look Luminous at Home With These Bronzers

The widespread closure of nonessential businesses has resulted in a variety of unforeseen beauty challenges — not least among them the need for D.I.Y. hair care — and skin is doubly affected: Not only is professional help off the table but spending less time outside can take a noticeable toll on its vibrancy. With a little know-how, though, bronzers, highlighters and blushes can help achieve a radiant, summery look. For pale complexions, focusing on luminosity instead of a sun-tanned appearance “will give a healthy glow rather than an unrealistic result,” says the makeup artist Kate Lee. Try a dewy highlighter, such as CoverGirl’s Clean Fresh Cooling Glow Stick. For darker skin, the makeup artist Tyron Machhausen suggests highlighters with more golden tones, noting “anything that is too frosty and cool-toned can look ashy.” He recommends Chanel’s Baume Essentiel in Golden Light. The general goal, adds the makeup artist Gucci Westman, is amplifying warm hues. The Beauty Butter Powder Bronzer from her Westman Atelier line is a matte terra-cotta formula that results in a sunny, bronzed glow that looks so natural you’d never know you’d been stuck inside for months.

Peek Inside the Refrigerators of Famous Chefs, Again

The chef Carla Hall and the contents of her fridge.Carrie Solomon

T Contributor

In the five years since Carrie Solomon and Adrian Moore’s book “Inside Chefs’ Fridges” was released, the collective fascination with the world’s leading culinary personalities has only intensified. Perfect timing, then, for a reimagined follow-up featuring the personal inner-kitchen sanctums of another group of esteemed and emerging chefs, from José Andrés of World Central Kitchen to Jessica Koslow of Sqirl to Nadine Levy Redzepi of Noma. Through dynamic photography, interviews and improvised recipes, the fully stocked sequel, “Chefs’ Fridges,” illustrates how the contents of a fridge reveal its owner’s character. Who stocks theirs with esoteric condiments and forbidden foods alongside mass-market goods like Heineken or cream cheese? What restaurant-kitchen remnants do they bring home, arranged meticulously and neatly labeled? “These people are all highly skilled in making the most of what they have, but they also mix genres and textures in ways that most of us don’t necessarily think of,” Solomon told me. Given the current state of the restaurant industry, which has chased most chefs into their homes, peeking inside the larders of beloved food figures feels all the more compelling. $40, harpercollins.com.

A New Twist on Woven Leather Accessories

In the late 1960s, Bottega Veneta introduced intrecciato (Italian for “braided”), a technique for weaving leather that quickly became the house’s signature. In using the supplest, finest pieces of leather, rather than cloth, the brand discovered a way to create durable yet luxurious accessories. Since then, this traditional kind of craftsmanship has been reimagined by several designers, and was particularly prevalent in pre-fall collections. Both Jonathan Anderson of Loewe and Miuccia Prada opted for a thicker weave with chunky handbags, while Daniel Lee, the new head of Bottega Veneta, designed a tightly woven crochet-knit shoulder bag. The Italian fashion house Tod’s came out with a buckled sandal with woven detailing that’s perfect for the summer months ahead — even if you’re staying at home. And if you’re looking for independent brands with more affordable prices, Dragon Diffusion has an array of beautiful handcrafted woven bags, all made in India, while the shoe brand Freda Salvador, founded by Cristina Palomo Nelson and Megan Papay, offers a summer sandal designed in California and handmade in Spain.

Draw T Something

“My mom taught me how to draw, but Ina Garten taught me how to cook,” explained Daniel Roseberry, the creative director of Schiaparelli, who was among the many artists, fashion designers and others from T’s community asked to make a drawing responding to a prompt, and then provide a different prompt for the next person along the chain. Roseberry was asked to draw his favorite person on a unicorn eating his favorite food. “We’ve never met, but as I’m quarantined and making every meal in the kitchen, I’m thinking about [Ina Garten] a lot. So here we have the Barefoot Contessa holding her famous roast chicken while riding her unicorn/stallion off into the ‘How Easy Is That?’ clouds.” It may seem strange, but animals and beds proved recurring elements throughout.
