Russian police arrest man who vandalised Ivan the Terrible painting

"The canvas has been ripped in three place in the central part of the Tsar's son. The original frame suffered from the breaking of the glass," the gallery said in a statement.

MOSCOW (AFP).- Russian police on Saturday said they arrested a man for vandalising one of the best known works of 19th century painter Ilya Repin, depicting Ivan the Terrible killing his son, at a gallery in Moscow. Police said the man used a metal pole to break the glass covering Repin's world famous painting of the 16th century Russian Tsar, titled "Ivan the Terrible and his Son Ivan on November 16, 1581." The Tretyakov Gallery said the work was "seriously damaged" as a result. "The canvas has been ripped in three place in the central part of the Tsar's son. The original frame suffered from the breaking of the glass," the gallery said in a statement. "Thankfully the most valuable part was not damaged," it added, referring to the face and hands of the Tsar and his son, the Tsarevich. The statement added that the incident took place late on Friday, just before the museum closed. "The man entered the already ... More

WASHINGTON (AFP).- US astronaut Alan Bean, the fourth person to walk on the moon, has died, his family announced in a statement released by NASA. He was 86 years old. The moonwalker who went on to become a painter died Saturday in Houston after suddenly falling ill weeks before, the statement said. He was among the elite group NASA chose for its third group of astronauts in 1963, having served as a test pilot in the US Navy. He twice ventured into space, originally in 1969 on the Apollo 12 moon landing mission, and later as commander of the second crew to fly to the first US space station Skylab in 1973. His second foray outside of Earth's atmosphere saw Bean log a record-breaking 59-day, 24.4 million-mile flight (39.3 million kilometers). He retired ... More

AAMD has a long-standing policy that restricts the use of funds obtained through deaccessioning to the acquisition of works of art.

NEW YORK, NY.- The Association of Art Museum Directors announced today that its Board of Trustees has voted to impose sanctions on the Berkshire Museum and the La Salle University Art Museum. This follows the decision made by each institution to use the proceeds from recent art sales to support operating budgets or expansion initiatives, a decision that violates one of the core principles of art museums. These actions are in opposition to AAMD’s policy that such funds must be used only to support acquisitions of art. AAMD has a long-standing policy that restricts the use of funds obtained through deaccessioning to the acquisition of works of art. Selling art to support any need other than to build a museum’s collection fundamentally undermines the critically important relationships between museums, donors and the ... More

METZ.- A bottle of Jura wine dating back to 1774 sold Saturday for a record 103,700 euros ($120,800) at auction in eastern France while two others of the same vintage also touched new highs. "I didn't think that these bottles would sell for so much. The last record set in 2011 was 57,000 euros," said auctioneer Brigitte Fenaux from the Jura Encheres auction house. The two other bottles were snapped up for 76,250 euros and 73,200 euros. The bottles of Anatoile Vercel Vin Jaune, among the oldest wines in the world, have been in the possession of Vercel’s descendents in Arbois, in eastern France, the capital of winemaking in the Jura region near Switzerland. The buyers were Canadians and someone who used to buy for Americans with links to France, she said. "There were winemakers in the room who applauded, who were happy, ... More

Decades-long hunt for bronze sculpture looted by Nazis leads to posh German hotel   Picasso's ties to the kitchen explored at Barcelona show   First violins imitated human voices: study

With fingers intertwined and mouths gleefully thrown open, the three maidens dance around the Art Nouveau sculpture by Walter Schott. Photo: Berthold Steinhilber.

WASHINGTON, DC.- In the final months of the 19th century, a German sculptor named Walter Schott began drawing up plans for a massive work he hoped would represent the pinnacle of his 15-year career. Cast in bronze, the Art Nouveau sculpture would feature three young women prancing around the lip of a stone fountain, fingers intertwined and mouths gleefully thrown open. Drei tanzende M鋎chen, he would call it. Three Dancing Maidens. Schott recruited a few local girls from his Berlin neighborhood, and asked them to dance around a peony bush. The resulting sketches, Schott later wrote in his memoirs, awakened in him an “enthusiasm I could no longer free myself from.” Still, the work came slowly. “To represent three very mobile figures atop a round, narrow disc, so that they make an impression when seen from all sides, has got to be one of the most difficult undertakings,” Schott recalled. He made a model at three-quarters scale, then ... More

"It's a new vision of Picasso," Emmanuel Guigon, director of the Picasso Museum in the Mediterranean seaside city, told AFP at Wednesday's inauguration of the exhibition "Picasso's Kitchen."

BARCELONA (AFP).- A deformed bottle of wine, a colander in the place of a woman's head or a ceramic plate with inlaid fish bones: For the first time, the intimate connection between Pablo Picasso's work and gastronomy is on display in his Barcelona museum. "It's a new vision of Picasso," Emmanuel Guigon, director of the Picasso Museum in the Mediterranean seaside city, told AFP at Wednesday's inauguration of the exhibition "Picasso's Kitchen." "It seems weird but it isn't. Cooking is a theme that is in all Picasso's work and in all formats: paintings, sculptures, pottery and even poetry." Strolling through the exhibition is like making one's way through a multi-course meal, with more than 180 works of art -- some of them borrowed from other museums or private collections -- scattered in 10 rooms. Cherry on the cake -- one room has been designed by Spanish gastronomy's Picasso, molecular gastronomy chef Ferran Adria, who has imposed his vision ... More

WASHINGTON (AFP).- Music historians have long suspected that the inventors of the violin wanted to imitate the human voice, and a study out Monday shows how 16th to 18th century luthiers in Italy did it. Researchers at National Taiwan University asked a professional violinist to play 15 antique instruments, including one from 1570 by Andrea Amati, the early 16th-century luthier from Cremony, Italy who is considered to be the father of the modern four-string violin. Others played in the study were from the Stradivarius family, conceived by Antonio Stradivari, who improved upon Amati's design. First, researchers recorded scales played on the 15 antique instruments played by a professional violinist and recorded at Taiwan's Chimei Museum. Then, they recorded the voices of eight men and eight women, ranging in age from 16 to 30 years, who sang common English vowels. Performing a thorough acoustic analysis, they found that an Amati violin dating to 1570 and a Gasparo da Salo violin dating to 1560 ... More

Ichwan Noor, Beetle Sphere. Courtesy Reflex Gallery Amsterdam.

AMSTERDAM.- Reflex Gallery in Amsterdam opened the first Benelux solo show of the Indonesian artist Ichwan Noor (Jakarta, 1964). The Yogyakarta-based artist is renowned for his large-scale sculptures of hybrid human, animal and technological forms. He works predominantly with bronze, stainless steel, aluminium, various used materials and resin. The exhibition runs from 26 May until 30 June 2018 and consists of five large works on paper and one black Beetle Sphere. Ichwan Noor has explored the theme of transport in previous works featuring objects and figures in motion. His sculptures reflect an interest in the combination of the man-made and the organic, in which human or animal forms are supported by or merged with technological attributes. Increasingly, however, Noor focuses exclusively on the man-made, modifying different vehicular components into new, simplified shapes in which their original function is ... More

The museum Boijmans Van Beuningen will ensure that their works - their individuality and genius - can be seen by future generations from across the world” Han Nefkens. Viktor&Rolf are known for their favouring of a conceptual starting point over the aesthetic, for instance, their approach can stem from a language-game ... More

VENICE.- For the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, the U.S. Pavilion, commissioned by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and The University of Chicago (UChicago) of Educational and Cultural Affairs, presents Dimensions of Citizenship . The exhibition challenges architects and designers to envision what it means to be a citizen today, as critical contemporary issues expand conventional notions of citizenship.

Group of rare Edward Sawyer's Native American portrait Galvanos offered by Heritage Auctions
DALLAS, TX.- A rare group of artist Edward Warren Sawyer's Native American Portrait Galvanos, heralded as both artistic and historic contributions to American art, will be offered by Heritage Auctions June 13-18 in Long Beach, California. Completed from 1904 to 1912, scholars credit Sawyer’s skilled ability to capture a subject’s likeness for setting a highpoint in the field of medallic art. “The majority of these galvanos are found in museums and it is highly unusual to see any examples offered at auction,” said Mark Borckardt, Senior Numismatist at Heritage Auctions. “Previously, only two examples have appeared for public sale to the best of our knowledge.” A galvano is a uniface rendering with the back typically filled with lead or another material to provide support. The galvanos were created in two sizes, 2-3/4-inch diameter and 5-inch diameter. There are 38 different ... More

Remai Modern premieres new installation by New York artist Paul Chan
SASKATOON.- On May 11, 2018 Remai Modern premiered a new work by New York-based artist Paul Chan, winner of the 2014 Hugo Boss Prize. Paul Chan: Bathers at Night is the largest and most complex installation of his “breathers” sculptures to date. "Debuting new work is always very exciting. Paul Chan is an extraordinary artist who combines historical and philosophical reference points, but whose work maintains a playful dose of absurdity and paradox,” said Gregory Burke, Remai Modern Executive Director & CEO and the exhibition’s curator. “His exhibition speaks to Remai Modern’s potential as a generator for contemporary art and ideas. We want the museum to be a place where artists and audiences alike can realize and encounter things for the first time.” Installed in Remai Modern’s Connect Gallery, the breathers are sculptural works that act like moving images.

Amy Judd's third major solo show with Hicks Gallery on view in London
LONDON.- Acclaimed London artist Amy Judd unveils a monumental collection of Flora paintings in a spectacular solo show at Hicks Gallery this spring. ‘Beautifully Obscure’ sees Amy Judd’s signature female figures, captured on an impressive scale in oil on canvas, transformed into Amazonian goddesses obscured by, enveloped in and armed with gigantic, voluptuous blooms. Taking her inspiration from the Roman Goddess Flora – the Sabine-derived divinity of flowers and symbol of nature, fertility, sex and youth – Amy’s paintings signal a contemporary reimagining and revision of traditional mythology, placing the female form at their core. “Everything for me starts with looking at the relationship between women and nature, and I take free rein from there.” This Flora collection signals a thematic shift, moving on from a folkloric exploration of birds, animals and feather ...

Taravat Talepasand's first exhibition with Jack Fischer Gallery opens in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Jack Fischer Gallery is presenting Yeki Bood, Yeki Nabood, Once Was, Once Wasnʼt, the first exhibition with the gallery by Taravat Talepasand. The show will be up through June 30, 2018. For centuries, it has been a Persian tradition to consult Hafez when confronted with a difficult decision or choice. When used in divination, it is widely believed that Hafezʼs poetry will reveal the answer to your destiny. After the Iranian Revolution in 1979 when the Shah of Iran fled into exile and the Islamic Republic was established there was a strict ban on anything sexually suggestive. Although many of Hafezʼs poems deal with love and wine perhaps and allegory for divine love, after the revolution this sort of illustration with semi-nudity was banned. The tradition of using Fal-e Hafiz was gone — for me an affirmation of life. Creating pleasure in recalling the bad days ... More

Portuguese artist turns trash into animal sculptures
LISBON (AFP).- Broken crates and worn pipes pile up in the studio of Portuguese artist Bordalo II, who uses rubbish to create surprising animal sculptures to warn about the dangers of pollution. The bearded 31-year-old has decorated the Portuguese capital and other cities around the world with his colourful foxes, owls, monkeys and chameleons. In Lisbon, one of his best-known works is a four-metre (13-foot) high raccoon assembled from old tyres, car bumpers and electronic components that gazes down on pedestrians in the riverside Belem district. "Animals are the characters which the public can identify most easily with when I want to show the ravages of our society on nature," said Artur Bordalo, who prefers the artistic name Bordalo II, a tribute to his late grandfather, painter Artur Real Bordalo. He uses materials in his work that are harmful to animals ... More

David Levine's 'Some of the People, All of the Time' challenges the meaning of a crowd
BROOKLYN, NY.- With his performative six-week installation at the Brooklyn Museum, artist David Levine asks: What does it mean to make an audience, a public, or a republic? In a free society, crowds matter—as citizens, as demonstrators, as social media followers. Recently, the legitimacy of certain public gatherings—in real life and online—has been called into question: bots on social media have skewed follower counts and undermined public opinion; accusations of “crisis acting” have discredited authentic political action; and “crowd-casting” agencies dot the landscape of protests, rallies, and demonstrations. These fabricated identities, alongside rhetorical invocations of “the fake,” have revealed a remarkable fragility in our democracy. Levine explores the complexities of these fabricated identities in his new exhibition, Some of the People, All of the Time, ... More

Morgan Lehman opens an exhibition of recent paintings by Amy Lincoln
NEW YORK, NY.- Morgan Lehman is presenting recent paintings by Amy Lincoln in the artist’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. Lincoln is a committed figurative painter with a bent towards the surreal, making works that depict the world and then give way to a certain slow-burning abstraction and symbolism. At face value her oeuvre features closely observed representations of plants and other elements of the natural world: ocean, sand, sun, moon, clouds, mountains, and volcanos. To render these the artist relies on sources ranging from the familiar (Lincoln’s own backyard), to the splendid (elaborate botanical gardens), to the virtual (images found on the internet), adeptly weaving together disparate imagery to create fantastic worlds rooted in the real. Lincoln’s hard-earned painterly language, marked by opaque planes of keyed up color, graphic ... More

Exhibition presents a new series of clay pot sculptures by Francis Upritchard
NEW YORK, NY.- For her third exhibition at Anton Kern Gallery, Francis Upritchard presents a new series of clay pot sculptures that are the result of her residency at the Lux Art Institute this past winter in Encinitas, CA. Upritchard is an adept collaborator and these works are evidence of a natural chemistry between artist and place, in particular between her and the artisans working in the Lux ceramic studio. Thrown on a pottery wheel, faces emerge from the otherwise smooth surfaces, augmented by painted marks, patterns and glazes. Her pots evoke a sense of artifacts or anthropological objects but resist those categorizations—challenging the viewer to look again, inviting a level of mystery and implying a level of understanding that avoids capture. Installed on a series of plinths that recall the kind of didactic presentation common in museums, Upritchard makes a nod ... More
