The Frick Collection exhibits two restored Renaissance paintings by Paolo Veronese

Paolo Veronese (1528–1588), St. Agatha Visited in Prison by St. Peter, 1566–67, oil on canvas, 65 1⁄2 × 81 1⁄2 inches, San Pietro Martire, Murano; photo: Ufficio Beni Culturali del Patriarcato di Venezia.

NEW YORK, NY.- This fall, The Frick Collection presents a focused exhibition on two important Renaissance paintings by the celebrated artist Paolo Veronese (1528– 1588), St. Jerome in the Wilderness and St. Agatha Visited in Prison by St. Peter. While the paintings are known to scholars, their remote location in a church in Murano, an island in the lagoon of Venice known today for its glassmaking studios and shops, has made them difficult to study. St. Jerome in the Wilderness has been exhibited outside the church only once—in 1939, in the Paolo Veronese exhibition at Ca’ Giustinian, in Venice— while St. Agatha Visited in Prison by St. Peter has not left the church since being installed in the early nineteenth century. These two rarely seen canvases left Italy for the first time since their creation, over 450 years ago. And thanks to Venetian Heritage and the sponsorship of BVLGARI, they have been fully restored and returned to th ... More

LONDON.- John Constable (1776-1837) is one of Britain’s best-loved and most significant landscape painters. A key figure in the British Romantic movement of the early 19th century, Constable, together with J.M.W. Turner, changed the course of European landscape painting forever. This winter, Sotheby’s London will present a recently rediscovered landscape by the British artist which is without question one of the most exciting and important additions to Constable’s oeuvre to have emerged in the last fifty years. Painted between 1814 and 1817, Dedham Vale with the River Stour in Flood belongs to a small group of Constable’s early Suffolk paintings remaining in private hands. The work will be offered in Sotheby’s Old Masters Evening sale on 6 December, with an estimate of £2-3 million. Julian Gascoigne, Senior Specialist, British Paintings at Sotheby’s said: “Constable’s views of Dedham Vale and the Stour ... More
 

Gerhard Richter, Küchenstuhl Keukenstoel, 1965. Öl auf Leinwand. Olieverf op doek, 100 x 80 cm. Kunsthalle Recklinghausen © Gerhard Richter 2017.

GHENT.- S.M.A.K. is presenting the first exhibition of work by Gerhard Richter in a Belgian museum since 1976. Richter is considered to be one of today’s most important artists and as one of the postwar renewers of painting. Eight previously unseen works from 2017 are being shown together with works from the last 14 years – including landscapes, digital prints and abstract works – and grouped around the glass piece 7 Panes (House of Cards) (2013). This arrangement echoes and carries forward the presentation of the early works from the 60s and 70s around his first work in glass, 4 Panes of Glass (1967). Showing works mainly from these two periods links together fundamental aspects of Richter’s work from the 60s with his present artistic practice. Richter has since the beginning used his oeuvre as a source of metaphors and structure for the creation of new work. It is for this reason that the exhibition is arranged chronologic ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Luxembourg & Dayan is celebrating the semi-centennial of the Arte Povera movement with Contingencies: Arte Povera and After, an exhibition placing select works by contemporary artists in dialogue with significant Arte Povera works from the 1960s and 1970s, crossing these historical moments in order to better understand the echoes between them. Amid the sociopolitical upheavals of the day, Arte Povera artists questioned the established languages of government, industry, and culture by proclaiming the porosity of the artwork, and exalting in its contingency: suddenly, a potential chemical reaction or simple transfer of energy could comprise the work itself. Contingencies considers the ways in which artists today similarly react to a world in turmoil by rejecting the autonomy of the art object in order to harness, engage, or interrupt systemic flows—whether those are organic, social, or technological— on a distinctly m ...

Fahrelnissa Zeid, Portrait of King Hussein of Jordan (Eternal Youth), 1973, estimated at £50,000-70,000. Photo: Bonhams.

LONDON.- Fahrelnissa Zeid’s rare and compelling portraits of King Hussein and Princess Alia of Jordan lead Bonhams Modern and Contemporary Middle Eastern Art sale on 28 November at the New Bond Street saleroom in London. The works are each estimated at £50,000-70,000. The monumental portraits of King Hussein and Princess Alia are considered seminal works from Zeid’s rich and dynamic career. Born in Istanbul in 1901, Zeid’s passion for the arts led her to attend art schools in both Istanbul and Paris. This fascinating, cross-cultural trajectory allowed her to develop a unique painterly style fusing traditions of Byzantine icons and Persian painting with Modern Abstraction that she studied in Western Europe. An important aspect of Zeid’s work is the way she conveys her most intimate and personal relationships, as highlighted in the stylized depictions of King Hussein and Princess Alia. The portraits, ...

Axis Mundo is the result of extensive research by co-curators David Evans Frantz, Curator at the ONE Archives at the USC Libraries, and C.

Paintings attributed to Mark Rothko and Claude Monet will headline Woodshed's Nov. 1st auction
FRANKLIN, MASS.- Three oil and enamel paintings attributed to renowned American-Russian Federation artist Mark Rothko (1903-1970) – two untitled abstract compositions and one untitled (Blue Square) work – all framed, signed verso and dated 1948 – carry estimates of $100,000-$200,000 each in Woodshed Art Auctions’ Prestige Signature Collection auction ending Nov. 1st. “Considering we were assembling an auction of small-scale paintings and drawings, it was a surprise to have three rather large Rothko paintings delivered from a Peruvian estate,” said Bruce Wood, owner of Woodshed Art Auctions. “We’re lucky that the former owner saved a few receipts, and they can be traced back to the 1960s. Paperwork like that is key when estimating.” Wood added, “One of the exciting things about these paintings is their 1948 date, when Rothko was formalizing ... More

Perot Museum's Journey To Space exhibition is as close to space as one can get without leaving Earth
DALLAS, TX.- All systems go! What’s it like to live and work in space? How do astronauts sleep in a weightless environment, go to the bathroom in orbit, and what effect does space travel have on their bodies?

Nepali pilot revives crashed plane as aviation museum
KATHMANDU (AFP).- A Turkish Airlines plane that crash landed at Kathmandu airport two years ago will be welcoming ticket holders on board again -- not for a flight but as the Nepali capital's first aviation museum. The Airbus A330 was carrying 224 passengers when it skidded off the runway at Kathmandu's airport in March 2015, coming to a stop with its nose buried in the grassy verge on the edge of the tarmac. No one was hurt, but the crash shut Nepal's only international airport for four days as technicians struggled to move the plane. It was eventually dragged to a disused corner of the airport where it sat rusting for two years -- until pilot Bed Upreti had an idea. "It is unfortunate that the aircraft (had) an accident and was grounded, but I saw a perfect opportunity," Upreti told AFP. He bought the metal carcass and has invested $600,000 to turn it into ...

No pomp as Russia revolution centenary nears
MOSCOW (AFP).- A century after its revolution shook the world, Russia strives to strike an odd balance between remembering the uprising that brought about the Soviet Union, while stopping short of romanticising regime change. In a series of seismic events, the year 1917 saw Tsar Nicholas II abdicate in March and the Bolsheviks led by Lenin seize power in October. Civil war erupted immediately afterwards, followed by the creation in 1922 of the USSR, built on the ruins of the Russian empire. A hundred years later, Russia still has trouble dealing with its revolutionary past, with the legacy of the 1917 uprising and the Soviet Union sparking fierce debate to this day. While the government tries to foster positive feelings towards the Soviet regime, which collapsed in 1991, it also wants to maintain the power and influence of the Orthodox Church. To sing praises to Lenin, ... More

Ancient Turkish town prepares to vanish under floodwaters
HASANKEYF (AFP).- At first glance all is as normal in the Turkish town of Hasankeyf, which has seen the Romans, Byzantines, Turkic tribes and Ottomans leave their mark in over 10,000 years of human settlement. The Tigris River languidly flows through the historic centre of the town in southeast Turkey's Batman province, souvenir sellers offer their wares to a handful of tourists and the famous vista of minarets, the citadel and ruins of a bridge take the breath away. But within the next few years, this scene is likely to be no more, with the historic centre of Hasankeyf set to vanish forever under the floodwaters from the Ilisu Dam project. Turkish officials argue that the dam's hydroelectric power station will provide electricity and irrigation essential to the development of the Kurdish-dominated southeast. The historic edifices will be moved in a hugely ambitious programme ... More

UT Austin's Harry Ransom Center acquires Dean F. Echenberg War Poetry Collection
AUSTIN, TX.- The Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin is now home to the Dean F. Echenberg War Poetry Collection. The collection was started in the early 1970s by Dean Echenberg, a flight surgeon during the Vietnam War who later became the director of disease control for the City of San Francisco during the first years of the AIDS crisis. “The Dean Echenberg War Poetry Collection extends the Ransom Center’s holdings in significant ways,” said Stephen Enniss, director of the Ransom Center. “It reminds us that one of the persistent sources of art is in suffering.” Throughout history numerous writers have tried to capture their experiences of war in language, often turning to poetry for its ability to convey intensity of feeling and for its authenticity. The common thread that runs through the collection is poetry by people who have ... More

Exhibition at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU presents innovative 3D printer works
MIAMI, FLA.- The exhibition, Subject to Interpretation: MONAD Studio, features the duo’s stunning and powerful site-specific installation La Cole (the abbreviation for the Spanish phrase la colectividad judía en Argentina). This colloquial term, La Cole, is recognized by Argentines as lovingly referring to the local community of Jews and its close-knit, strong bonds. All of the elements of La Cole were created using state-of-the-art 3D printers. Large-scale, intricately ornate panels hover above the central space of the gallery. Suspended from the ceiling as beacons of light, the panels are lit from above in luminous tones emanating down from the dome that adorns the building’s ceiling, radiating light across the porous surfaces of the panels, to evocatively portray the multiple links and rich relations shared between the members of communities all over the world. “Each ...

DeCordova explores human's relationship with water in Bodies in Water
LINCOLN, MASS.- DeCordova is presenting Bodies in Water, an exhibition showing the many creative ways photographers have been inspired by water. The works in the exhibition, showcasing deCordova’s deep holdings of photography, feature human bodies immersed in, emerging from, and interacting with water in visually bold and thought-provoking ways. While some artists address water as a form of recreation or relaxation, others focus on its scarcity or potentially dangerous nature. “Bodies in Water explores the deep connection humans have with water, whether for leisure, for necessity, or in enduring its power as a natural force,” says Martina Tanga, deCordova’s Koch Curatorial Fellow. “The powerful images show both universal relationships with water and historical ones—racial segregation in swimming pools, water pollution and drought, and refugees ...
