WASHINGTON, DC.- David J. Skorton was installed as the 13th Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution during a ceremony held today Monday, Oct. 19, at the Smithsonian’s Arts and Industries Building on the National Mall. The Hon. John G. Roberts, Jr., Chief Justice of the United States and Chancellor of the Smithsonian, presided over the ceremony and presented Skorton with a ceremonial brass key that once opened one of the massive oak doors of the Smithsonian Castle. In his remarks, Skorton stressed the important role the Smithsonian must play in the world. “We face national and global challenges that cry out for the arts, social sciences and humanities to act side-by-side with the life sciences and physical sciences….Our country, and others around the world, look to us for insight and inspiration….We are so fortunate to be the custodians of the greatest treasures ...

LONDON.- The 13th edition of Frieze London closed on Saturday 17th October having seen major acquisitions by international institutions and significant sales to private collectors. The fair, which brought together 164 galleries from 27 countries, attracted a record number of collectors to the preview. Attendance across both fairs was higher this year at over 105,000, up from 100,000 in 2014, thanks to an uplift in visitors at Frieze Masters - the fair had nearly 50,000 visitors, up from 37,000 in 2014. The Frieze directors warmly welcomed the large number of gallery stand re-hangs, artist signings, talks and tours which created a dynamic environment, drawing collectors to return to the fair throughout the week. Frieze London is supported for the 12th consecutive year by Main Sponsor Deutsche Bank.

Circa-1750 CE Indian bronze of Uma (Parvati), 19½ inches tall, provenance includes purported gift in 1946 from Mahatma Gandhi. Est. $13,000-$19,000.

BOULDER, CO.- Provenance is always desirable, no matter what the collecting category may be, but when the object of pursuit is a premier cultural antiquity, prior ownership and the assurance that an item is legal to purchase escalate from “important” to “absolutely essential.” Artemis Gallery’s owners, Bob and Teresa Dodge, established their company on a foundation of knowledge and integrity, issuing an unconditional guarantee that every piece they offer is authentic and unquestionably legal for bidders to purchase. And it is that steadfast business mantra that continues to bring Artemis Gallery the caliber of consignments such as those seen in their Oct. 22 online auction of Exceptional Ancient, Asian and Ethnographic Art. “We have a very selective and uncompromising clientele,” said Bob Dodge, co-owner of Artemis Gallery. “Many ...

For the second time, Magna Carta exhibition venue switched again in China   Exhibition at Chiostro del Bramante recounts James Tissot's passions, torments and experiences   Getty Villa displays collection of early 19th century illustrations and panoramas of Greece

File photo of one of the British Library’s Magna Carta manuscripts being prepared for display.

SHANGHAI (AFP).- A Magna Carta exhibition scheduled for a Shanghai museum has been switched to the British Consulate -- the second time the historic declaration of rights has been moved from a public venue in communist-ruled China. A display of one of only four existing examples of the charter -- considered to represent the foundation of rule of law in the West -- was originally advertised for the Guanfu Museum in China's commercial hub. But it will now be shown at Britain's diplomatic mission in the city, an invitation to media revealed. It is the second time on its China tour that a display of the document has been moved from a public place to diplomatic premises -- to which ordinary Chinese citizens have limited access. A showing in Beijing was last week moved from a university to the British ambassador's residence at the last minute. The document is on a world tour to mark ... More

James Tissot, Portsmouth Dockyard, 1877 (detail). ca, Oil on canvas, UK, London, Tate © Tate, London, 2014.

ROME.- A refined leading figure in the elite of his time, both envied and loved, James Tissot is a painter whose art in some respects is still an enigma today, a blend of Impressionist influences and Pre-Raphaelite echoes. Tissot was French by birth but British by adoption and felt equally at ease among conservatives and liberals. His paintings celebrate the life of the upper middle class ¬– the class that was at its height during the Victorian era between the industrial revolution and colonialism – by transforming the quotidian into heroic and celebratory exploits, turning every gesture into a stereotype, but one that was not devoid of originality. Dart - Chiostro del Bramante and Arthemisia Group present the monographic exhibition featuring the work of this great artist James Tissot (…) from 26 September 2015 to 21 February 2016 at the Chiostro del Bramante in Rome. The 80 works in the ... More

LOS ANGELES, CA.- “Almost every rock, every promontory, every river, is haunted by the shadows of the mighty dead,” wrote the English antiquarian Edward Dodwell of his travels in Greece at the beginning of the nineteenth century. During this time, he and the Italian artist Simone Pomardi traversed the country, producing around one thousand watercolors and drawings of the ancient Greek countryside.

William McGregor Paxton, The Open Book, 1922, in period frame ( 43 ¼ X 38 ¼ X 3 5/8 inches).

NEW YORK, NY.- Eli Wilner has contributed an essay to the catalog “The Lunder Collection: A Gift of Art to Colby College.” Mr. Wilner’s chapter, entitled “Surrounding Beauty: Period Frames in the Lunder Collection,” discusses both the exquisite frames in the collection, and his treasured friendship with Peter and Paula Lunder, now spanning over twenty-five years. With them he shares an appreciation for the important relationship between a painting and its frame, and together they have had the opportunity to explore how specific frames complement and enhance individual artworks in the collection.

He examines the frames on Eastman Johnson’s Party ... More

Exhibition of drawings by David Remfry RA opens at Pallant House Gallery
CHICHESTER.- Pallant House Gallery presents an exhibition of drawings by David Remfry RA of people and their dogs including celebrities such as Alan Cumming, Susan Sarandon and Ethan Hawke. The exhibition accompanies the publication of a new book by the Royal Academy entitled ‘We Think the World of You: Drawings of People and Dogs’. David Remfry (born 1942) is best known for his life-sized watercolours of urban scenes and night clubs but has long had a fascination with the relationship that develops between dogs and their owners.

Sale of Wrangham collection of Japanese miniature art continues at Bonhams
LONDON.- Bonhams will hold the sixth (and penultimate) of a series of sales from the Edward Wrangham Collection on Tuesday 10 November at its New Bond Street headquarters in London. The five previous sales of the Edward Wrangham Collection - considered to be Europe's pre-eminent private collection of Japanese miniature art - have so far realised more than £7m. The Wrangham Collection was formed by the late environmentalist, mountaineer, scholar and collector Edward Wrangham OBE (see notes for editors). One of the last of the great British collectors, he was greatly influenced by his uncle William Winkworth as well as by his grandfather, the legendary collector of Asian art Stephen Winkworth, who presented him with his first netsuke in 1936, when he was only eight years old. Wrangham continued to add to his collection until his death in 2009, sourcing works ... More

Composer Tarek Atoui's BAMPFA residency concludes in early November with series of concerts

Born in Lebanon and based in Paris, Atoui initiates and curates multidisciplinary interventions, concerts, performances, and workshops.

His MATRIX exhibition is the final installment in BAMPFA’s series of nomadic projects before it opens to its new building in downtown Berkeley on January 31, 2016. Organized in conjunction ... More

Architectures: Collection de l'Art Brut in Lausanne opens Art Brut Biennial
LAUSANNE.- Launched in 2013, the Art Brut Biennials continue this year with the Architectures exhibition presenting two hundred and fifty drawings, paintings, sculptures and textile creations. By fifty-one different Art Brut authors, the works on show thus testify to a very wide range of techniques, materials, dimensions and formal languages. This second edition biennial highlights architecture: it presents a range of works—some of which have never before gone on display—exclusively focused on the theme of construction. Showcased side-by-side, representations of houses, buildings and cities, together with floor plans, elevations of facades, cross-section and perspective views are invited to dialogue among themselves. Their Art Brut authors have rejected all the geometric constraints and demands of convention ordinarily governing architectural drawings, diverting the laws of perspective ... More

"All Right Now": Bonhams offer guitar of legendary 'Free' rocker, Paul Kossoff
LONDON.- “There she stood in the street, smilin’ from her head to her feet,” the famous opening lyrics to one of the most well-known tracks of the 1970s, ‘All Right Now’. Penned by Free, the song launched the band straight into the rock and roll legend hall of fame. Paul Kossoff was their guitarist, his axe a 1959 Gibson Les Paul. Thirty years on, Kossoff’s personal guitar is now offered at auction for the first time as part Bonhams Entertainment Memorabilia sale, taking place 10 December at Bonhams Knightsbridge.

First international solo exhibition of Chinese painter Yuan Yuan opens at Edouard Malingue Gallery
PARIS.- Edouard Malingue Gallery presents ‘There is no there there’, the first international solo exhibition of critically acclaimed Chinese painter Yuan Yuan (b. 1973, China) at Malingue Gallery, Paris. Taking inspiration from a quote by arts patron Gertrude Stein (Everybody’s Autobiography, 1937), the works respond to the late writer’s impressions upon returning home to California after living in Paris for over 30 years and discovering a ghost-like setting: all that was there was no more. Departing from Stein’s lyrical description of loss, Yuan Yuan presents a series of imagined interiors, which focus on the recurring feature of mirrors. Since 3000 BC, when the Yellow Emperor Huang Di expounded the ‘Fauna of Mirrors’ – a myth citing that every reflective surface was a portal unto a different world harbouring creatures unknown to earth – the mirror has come to be a recurring symbol in lit ...

Claude Lévêque creates a site-specific work in the Louvre's enormous medieval space
PARIS.- The Louvre has invited Claude Lévêque, a major figure on the international contemporary art scene, to create a site-specific work in its enormous medieval space. With its roots in the avant-gardes of the late 1970s, Lévêque’s work metamorphoses the spaces it occupies. Inspired by the moat and the keep, the artist has designed a self-contained viewing itinerary as a springboard for a narrative. Driven by a concentrated inner energy, Lévêque’s work interacts with the spaces it encounters, triggering a potent combination of evocation and sensation. The first segment inside the Pyramid was intended as the prelude to the exhibition in the Medieval Louvre. Since April 2, 2014 the Louvre Pyramid, whose central column was designed to receive a monumental sculpture, has been home to the stark form of this segment of Lévêque’s on-site project. ... More

Twelve emerging and established Japanese contemporary artists explore the future of Kōgei
NEW YORK, NY.- From October 20, 2015 to February 7, 2016, the Museum of Arts and Design presents Japanese Kōgei | Future Forward. The exhibition showcases the work of 12 established and emergent kōgei artists, and examines the changing role of this discipline within Japanese culture today. Kōgei is a genre of traditional art that may be roughly translated as "artisan crafts"—a means of highly skilled artistic expression, both in form and decoration, that is associated with specific regions and peoples in Japan. The subject is steeped in tradition and rooted in upholding conventional cultural ideals and aesthetics through the mastery of specialized techniques and materials. While contemporary kōgei remains rooted in centuries of cultural history, the work of the artists in this exhibition reflects a decisive and somewhat controversial shift from that of their peers. ...
