The finds of more than 1,600 years old includes as well a roman bathhouse. The Schneller Orphanage operated in Jerusalem from 1860 until the Second World War.

JERUSALEM.- Unexpected finds more than 1,600 years old were uncovered during archaeological excavations financed by the Merom Yerushalayim Company, which the Israel Antiquities Authority is carrying out in Schneller Compound prior to the construction of residential buildings for Jerusalem’s ultra-orthodox population. Schneller Orphanage operated in Jerusalem from 1860 until the Second World War. During the British Mandate, its German inhabitants were expelled and a military base was established there. After the British withdrawal in 1948 the compound was turned over to the Hagana and later served as an army base used by the Israel Defense Force until 2008. Interesting and assorted finds from Jerusalem’s past were discovered in the archaeological excavation, most notably a large and impressive winery dating to the Roman or Byzantine period, some 1,600 ...

Vast unknown Bob Dylan archive knocks on University of Tulsa in Oklahoma's door   artnet Auctions offers an Edward Hopper watercolor "Trees, East Gloucester" from 1926   Dickinson to offer a museum-quality Renoir, Au Bord de l’Eau, at TEFAF 2016

NEW YORK (AFP).- A trove of thousands of Bob Dylan notebooks and other artifacts -- mostly unknown except to the rock icon himself -- will head to a US university to be preserved for posterity. The University of Tulsa in Oklahoma announced Wednesday that it had acquired more than 6,000 items from the singer's six-decade career and would create the Bob Dylan Archive. The archive will eventually go on permanent display in Tulsa near a recently built museum to Woody Guthrie, the folk legend and Dylan influence who was born in Oklahoma, a Great Plains state that was once Indian territory. "I'm glad that my archives, which have been collected all these years, have finally found a home and are to be included with the works of Woody ... More

Edward Hopper (American, 1882–1967), Trees, East Gloucester, 1926. Watercolor on paper. Overall Size: 14 x 20 in. Estimate: 150,000—200,000 USD.

NEW YORK, NY.- Edward Hopper first painted Gloucester during a summer spent in the Massachusetts fishing town and artist’s haven in 1912. He returned to the area in the summer of 1924 and again in 1926 and 1928, before he began summering in Truro, on Cape Cod, in 1930. During his time spent in Gloucester and other parts of New England, Hopper was inspired by the towns, landscapes, and coast lines that surrounded him and portrayed these everyday scenes in his realist style with subtle, psycho-social undertones. Watercolor became an important media for Hopper beginning in 1923, and the translucent quality of the paint allowed him to better capture the effect of sunlight in his works. While many of his watercolors are ... More

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Au Bord de l’Eau, 1885 (detail).

LONDON.- Dickinson gallery of London and New York will offer Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s 1885 Impressionist masterpiece Au Bord de l’Eau at TEFAF 2016. A museum-quality work of prestigious provenance, depicting one of the most popular Impressionist motifs, that has not been on the market for almost a century. Conceived en plein air along the banks of the Seine near Renoir’s residence at La Roche-Guyon, Au Bord de l’Eau demonstrates the rich, sensuous style and vibrant palette of Renoir’s most celebrated boating scenes of the 1880s. It betrays the lessons learned during his 1881 travels to Italy, his 1884 visit – together with Monet – to Cézanne’s home in L’Estaque; and of his admiration of the rococo fantasies of Watteau and Fragonard. Yet Renoir’s ultimate source of inspiration was the landscape itself; in his unpublished treatise entitled ... More

Last of the Mitford sisters' treasures soar to £1.8 million total; 3x pre-sale estimate   Exhibition of photographs by Ellsworth Kelly on view at Matthew Marks in New York   Exhibition of Swedish painter Hilma af Klint's work opens at the Serpentine Gallery

LONDON (AFP).- Hundreds of personal items from the estate of an eccentric British duchess, the youngest of six sisters who scandalised 1930s British high society, were auctioned in London on Wednesday. A collection of insect brooches, 36 model hens and a phone topped with a foot-high figure of Elvis Presley that dances and sings when the phone rings were among the items belonging to Deborah, the late duchess of Devonshire and one of the Mitford sisters. "Together, the objects tell this amazing story about her taste, the choices she made about what to keep, the things from her childhood, the jewels from her husband, the things that made her smile," David MacDonald, a specialist overseeing the Sotheby's sale, told AFP. Raised in decaying aristocratic splendour in the English countryside, the Mitford sisters were close to the Kennedy US political dynasty and then British prime minister Winston Churchill, but courted tabloid infamy with their unorthodox lives and political views. ...

NEW YORK, NY.- Matthew Marks is presenting Ellsworth Kelly Photographs, on view in his gallery at 523 West 24th Street. Featuring over thirty gelatin silver prints of photos taken between 1950 and 1982, this exhibition is the first ever devoted to Kelly’s photography. Kelly finished preparing the prints and planning the exhibition shortly before his death, on December 27, at the age of ninety-two. Ellsworth Kelly is credited with inventing a new kind of painting, one inspired by nature and chance compositions encountered in the world. This artistic breakthrough took place in the late 1940s, while he was living in France: “Everywhere I looked, everything I saw became something to be made, and it had to be made exactly as it was, with nothing added. It was a new freedom; there was no longer the need to compose.” Kelly’s fascination with already-made compositions is clear in his ... More

LONDON.- Serpentine Galleries presents an exhibition of Swedish painter Hilma af Klint (1862–1944), who is now regarded as a pioneer of abstract art. While her paintings were not seen publicly until 1986, her work from the early 20th century pre-dates the first purely abstract paintings by Wassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian and Kazimir Malevich. This Serpentine exhibition focuses primarily on her body of work, The Paintings for the Temple, which dates from 1906–15. The sequential nature of af Klint’s work is highlighted by the inclusion in the exhibition of numerous paintings from key series, some neverbefore exhibited in the UK. After graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm in 1887, af Klint took a studio in the city where she produced and exhibited traditional landscapes, botanical drawings and portraits. However, by 1886 she had abandoned the conventions she learned at the ... More

LONDON.- Waddington Custot Galleries presents Animal, Vegetable, Mineral, an exhibition curated by Dr Jo Melvin, focusing on the early career of the renowned late British sculptor. A survey of works from the 1960s, 70s and 80s, the exhibition includes a selection of Flanagan's key early explorations in material and form instrumental in shaping his later career, some having not been exhibited for over 30 years.

Head of Buddha, ca 500-534 CE Northern Wei 386-534. Limestone 16 inches.

NEW YORK, NY.- Sculpture from China’s Northern Dynasties dating from 386 to 577 A.D. will be the subject of the Asian art show at Throckmorton Fine Art from March 3 to April 23 at its New York gallery at 145 East 57th Street. According to gallery founder Spencer Throckmorton, “The focus of our 2016 Asian exhibition will be on sculpture from China’s Northern Dynasties including Northern Wei, Eastern Wei and Northern Qi examples, with an emphasis on artworks dating to the sixth century A.D. A detailed catalog will accompany the exhibition. “The nearly two hundred year period surrounding the sixth century was a particularly rich period of artistic production of Buddhist sculpture as Buddhism was adopted at the highest levels of Chinese society, and richly patronized by the Imperial courts of the successive dynasties. The quality and beauty of these examples can serve to illustrate the high artistic level of the sculpture o ... More

Solo show by German photographer Carina Brandes opens at Team
NEW YORK, NY.- Team (gallery, inc.) announces a solo show by German photographer Carina Brandes. Entitled Blow Up, the exhibition runs from 03 March to 03 April 2016. Team (gallery, inc.) is located at 47 Wooster Street, between Grand and Broome, on the ground floor. Carina Brandes’ black and white photographs, which depict hypnogogic scenes of play, are the shadowy phantoms of their referent reality. Without the use of explicitly fantastical elements, she conceives and realizes a self-contained, subjective world; the camera serves the artist as a tool for invention and projection, rather than objective documentation. These images isolate ephemeral moments from insoluble, Delphic rituals: nude women (most often the artist herself) perform choreographed actions in otherwise unoccupied nature. The medium of the still image, and these pictures’ arcane but legible contents, ... More

The portrait in contemporary photography is focus of exhibition at Kunstmuseum Bonn
BONN.- For the first time Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur, Cologne, and Kunstmuseum Bonn simultaneously show two group exhibitions with the shared title “With Different Eyes. The Portrait in Contemporary Photography.” These exhibitions both deal with a topic that never gets out of date and that offers a diversity of reference points to us. Not only in the history of painting, but especially in the history of photography, the portrait has always been one of the most important and constantly re-innovated pictorial contents. The exhibitions present numerous artistic concepts that shed light on the genre from many different angles. The shows discuss aspects of individuality and identity, social and cultural contexts and social relations. Single photographs, photo sequences, room-filling installations and cinematic works show people in different living environments, examine ... More

Carpenters Workshop Gallery presents Dutch designer Maarten Baas' latest collection 'Carapace'
NEW YORK, NY.- Dutch designer Maarten Baas presents his latest collection ‘Carapace’ at Carpenters Workshop Gallery’s recently opened New York space. The solo show takes place from Wednesday 2 March to 30 April 2016. Carapace is a scientific term for a protective, decorative or camouflaging shell found on the back of animals such as beetles and turtles. This idea of creating a ‘hard skin’ to protect the soft body is a key inspiration for this Maarten Baas’s newest series. Starting off in admiration of the 1950s refrigerator, this led him to the study of these curved, organic forms found in nature. The designer has created a series of furniture encompassed by a patchwork of bronze plating, dot-welded, piece-by-piece, to form the skin of the furniture, acting as a protective shield, similar to a turtle shell. The designer says, “I feel it’s important to have a hard layer under which ... More

A selection of new and recent paintings by Philip Hanson on view at James Cohan
NEW YORK, NY.- James Cohan is presenting the exhibition It is too difficult a Grace, the gallery’s first solo exhibition of paintings by Philip Hanson. The exhibition is on view from February 26 through April 3 at the gallery’s Lower East Side location. It is too difficult a Grace presents a selection of new and recent paintings that exemplify Hanson’s intersection of text and image, and his complex layering of dense, richly colored patterns with excerpts from Romantic era poets. Originally associated with the Chicago Imagists, Hanson’s approach to painting possesses the Imagists’ desire to capture the visceral and emotional aspects of what it means to be human, yet through the earnestness and sincerity that lives within the words of Emily Dickinson, William Blake, and William Shakespeare. Words in Hanson’s paintings glint across unfurling banners and pass through layers ... More

Exhibition of recent work by Seattle-based artist Ann Gale opens at Dolby Chadwick Gallery
SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Dolby Chadwick Gallery announces the exhibition of recent work by Seattle-based artist Ann Gale, on view from March 3 to April 2, 2016. The artist will present oil paintings on canvas, linen-wrapped panel, and copper, as well as works in graphite on paper. In a day and age when our society seems obsessed with speed, and with viewing—and dismissing—multitudes of images streaming over the airwaves or bombarding us through the portals of social media, it is a revelation to contemplate the work of an artist such as Gale, who spends months, if not years, studying a single pose taken by one of her models. Gale's passion focuses on conducting an investigation into the nature of perception and the psychology of human interaction that transcends the purely visual. With a stillness, and an intimacy so profound that it becomes nearly unbearable, Gale's keen ... More

Blum & Poe presents an exhibition of work by Kazunori Hamana, Yuji Ueda, and Otani Workshop
NEW YORK, NY.- Blum & Poe presents an exhibition of Japanese ceramics featuring the work of Kazunori Hamana, Yuji Ueda, and Otani Workshop — organized and curated by Takashi Murakami. For this exhibition, Takashi Murakami assembles a new generation of Japanese ceramicists whose unique pottery methods merge a respect for lineage with improvisation, experimentation, and refinement.

Central to both the artists' practices and lifestyles, an emphasis on the integrity of natural objects and processes drives this presentation of anthropomorphic clay forms; asymmetrical vessels; and singed, crackling, glazed surfaces. ...

mumok exhibits works by two young artists: Kathi Hofer and Eloise Hawser
VIENNA.- From March 4, 2016, mumok is presenting two young artists who both reflect critically on contemporary concepts of nostalgia, re-evaluating these with new works made especially for this mumok show. Kathi Hofer (born 1981 in Hallein) draws on her own family history and an Austrian fashion icon—the artist comes from the Salzburg Hofer family that, up to the year 2000, produced the Austrian clothing brand Walkjanker. The timeless elegance of these clothes survived trends and technological innovation for fifty years, and they were included in the portfolios of top fashion houses and magazines and worn by international stars—including actress Grace Kelly, the writer Ernest Hemingway, and the Paris fashion designer Kenzo. Eloise Hawser (born 1985 in London) also works with objects that may seem to be long obsolete, bringing these under new conditions ... More
