Dali and Lempicka paintings stolen from museum 'found after seven years'

Dali's 1941 surrealist work "Adolescence" featuring the Catalan artist and his beloved nanny and Lempicka's sensual 1929 tableau "La Musicienne" have been tracked down, detective Arthur Brand said via his Twitter account.

THE HAGUE (AFP).- Two renowned paintings stolen from a Dutch museum seven years ago, one by Salvador Dali and the other by Polish artist Tamara de Lempicka, have been recovered, a specialist art detective said Wednesday. Dali's 1941 surrealist work "Adolescence" featuring the Catalan artist and his beloved nanny and Lempicka's sensual 1929 tableau "La Musicienne" have been tracked down, detective Arthur Brand said via his Twitter account. "We recovered the #Dali and the #DeLempicka, stolen in 2009 from Scheringa museum," he wrote in a Tweet, posting two pictures of himself with the paintings. The two works of art were snatched from the Scheringa Museum of Realist Art in the northern town of Spanbroek in a daylight armed robbery on May 1, 2009. Several masked men threatened staff and visitors with a gun and then drove off in a car with the two tableaux, police told AFP at the time. Brand said the two paintings had then been given to a criminal gang in lieu of payment -- a transaction which is ... More

GREENWICH, CONN.- Two experimental works by the innovative artist-photographer Eadweard Muybridge from the Bruce Museum’s collection today came up from storage and are now on view. Does a running horse have all four feet off the ground at once? That is the question Eadweard Muybridge wanted to answer when he began his pioneering photographic work in animal movement in 1872 at the request of racehorse owner and former California governor Leland Stanford. Fifteen years later, Muybridge was still exploring the subject. His innovative approach to photography led to new methods in animation and improved stop-motion techniques. At an outdoor studio created for him at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Muybridge equipped three batteries of twelve ... More

NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine at Arkansas State University.

COLUMBUS, OH.- One-hundred and fifteen medical students will join the Arkansas State University Jonesboro campus, Jonesboro, Arkansas, this fall when the new school of osteopathic medicine opens for its first class. Planned and designed by DesignGroup, a Columbus-based architectural design firm specializing in education, healthcare, library and other civic buildings, the school had a groundbreaking in June. The school is housed in Wilson Hall, the oldest building on the A-State campus and a centerpiece on the historic quad. “Located in the heart of the campus, Wilson Hall couldn’t be a more appropriate location for the new school of medicine to showcase its importance and meaning to the communities of Arkansas,” said Elliott Bonnie, AIA, who led the project at DesignGroup.

Untitled [MacNeil with her camera, standing with two men], from the series Haymarket, 1968-70. Gelatin silver print. Wendy Snyder MacNeil Archive, Ryerson Image Centre.

TORONTO.- The Ryerson Image Centre regrets to announce the passing of pioneering photographer and filmmaker Wendy Snyder MacNeil, who died at her home in Lincoln, Massachusetts on the afternoon of July 20, with her immediate family at her side. In 2007, the RIC became the custodian of MacNeil's archive, a donation the institution celebrated earlier this year with the exhibition and catalogue, The Light Inside: Wendy Snyder MacNeil, Photographs and Films. "Wendy was a restless experimentalist, pushing formal boundaries in search of a truer, more humanistic, more direct engagement with her subjects, and with viewers of her work," wrote Paul Roth, Director of the Ryerson Image Centre, in the RIC catalogue that accompanied The Light Inside. During her remarkably productive two decades as a photographer, MacNeil constantly strove to develop new approaches to ... More

New exhibition at GoMA, Glasgow explores genesis of video as an art form
GLASGOW.- Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art presents a group exhibition with works by Stansfield/Hooykaas, Arthur Ginsberg with Video Free America and Videofreex, which explores the beginnings of video as an art form and its relationship to counterculture. A new commission by Heather Phillipson considers how the normalisation of personal video recording has affected contemporary society. Please Turn Us On opens to the public on 28 July 2016 in Gallery 3. Using the recently acquired seminal work by Stansfield/Hooykaas ‘What’s it to you? (1975)’ the exhibition looks at how artists used early ‘home video’ equipment to empower themselves and the communities in which they lived and worked. ‘What’s it to you?’ has only ever been shown once before in the UK at the Third Eye Centre, for one week, in 1975. It is one of the first examples of video installation presented ... More

The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston exhibits works by Liz Deschenes and Nalini Malani
BOSTON, MASS.- Deschenes (b. 1966, Boston), is known for her lushly beautiful and meditative work in photography and sculpture, and since the early 1990s has produced a singular and influential body of work that probes the relationship between the mechanics of seeing, image-making processes, and modes of display. The first mid-career survey dedicated to Deschenes’s work, this exhibition features 20 years of her art, including explorations of various photographic technologies, rich and nuanced work with photograms (a type of photographic image made without a camera), and sculptural installations that reflect the movements and light within a given space and respond to a site’s unique features. Organized by Eva Respini, Barbara Lee Chief Curator, with Jessica Hong, Curatorial Assistant. Nalini Malani (b. 1946, Karachi) is India’s foremost video and installation artist and ... More

Racine Art Museum presents "Go for Baroque"
RACINE, WI.- Baroque is one of those words whose meaning changes slightly depending on context and perspective. It could refer to a specific or general time period, or to a style of art, architecture, music, or other creative endeavor. Possibly derived from a Portuguese word for a misshapen pearl, baroque has a history that has been described as "long, complex, and controversial." Open through September 4, 2016, Go for Baroque: Opulence and Excess in Contemporary Art illustrates how the word "baroque" could be used as a gathering point--a commonality that aligns artists drawing from many kinds of backgrounds and interests. Historically, the term included works that were considered excessive, full of bravado, and theatricality. While the past emphasis on baroque in art involved spectacle on an elaborate scale, a contemporary baroque--such as what is suggested ... More

Works by Tony Morgan and John Blake on view at Richard Saltoun Gallery
LONDON.- Richard Saltoun Gallery presents a season of four one-month exhibitions devoted to Conceptual Art made in Britain during the 60s and 70s. The third exhibition focuses on Tony Morgan (b. 1938 Leicestershire – d. 2004 Geneva) and John Blake (b. 1945). These two innovative and experimental filmmakers are also known for their early photo-conceptual works, which are spotlighted in this show. Tony Morgan left London at the age of 22 to embark on a month-long walk to Rome, an epic walk which he later referred to as his “first performance” and cites as the nexus for his later performances and ‘exercises’. The most famous of these, The Book of Exercises, 1971, will be exhibited for the first time in its entirety: encompassing 49 pages of typewritten text and 21 black and white photographs. Bringing together photography and text, the “book” attempts a taxonomy ... More

Major retrospective brings together some thirty works by Glenn Brown
ARLES.- Among contemporary British artists, Glenn Brown is one of the most unusual and most unique. After completing his MA in 1992 at London’s distinguished Goldsmiths College, he struck out against the prevailing artistic current. At this epoch painting – and figurative painting even more so – was viewed as the poor relation among the media available to modern art. While his contemporaries were asking themselves the question “Why bother painting?”, Glenn Brown chose to make the brushmarks of earlier masters, such as Vincent van Gogh, the subject of his paintings. This summer the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles pays tribute to Glenn Brown with a major retrospective bringing together some thirty works. This event marks an important milestone, not only because it has been 16 years since the last retrospective of the artist’s oeuvre was held in France ... More

Converging Landscapes: Group show opens at Lyons Wier Gallery
NEW YORK, NY.- Lyons Wier Gallery presents its second group summer show, "Converging Landscapes," featuring artists Jose Anico, Steve Cope, Valeri Larko, Peter Roux and Mark Zimmermann. The exhibition addresses how contemporary artists use the landscape as their muse. Their painting techniques range from plein air to abstraction and exemplifies how contemporary artists are using the landscape as inspiration. Jose Anico paints the landscape almost verbatim. Capturing the marshy view from New Jersey and New York City, the work has a shared spirit with Dutch Landscape painting. Anico's dirt roads and open vistas feel as if they could have been painted centuries ago if it was not for the detritus material and power lines that pepper the landscape calling attention to present-day environmental concerns. Valeri Larko's painting practice employs traditional plein ... More

Solo exhibition of new works by Veronika Kellndorfer on view at Christopher Grimes Gallery
SANTA MONICA, CA.- Christopher Grimes Gallery is presenting a solo exhibition of new works by Veronika Kellndorfer. This body of work stems from her 2015 solo exhibition at the Casa de Vidro in São Paulo, home of celebrated Italian-born Brazilian architect Lina Bo Bardi. During this time Kellndorfer also engaged with the architecture of Oscar Niemeyer and gardens of Roberto Burle Marx, finding their approach to Brazilian Modernism nascent to a new scope of reference. For Tropical Modernism: Lina Bo Bardi, Kellndorfer continues working in the process she developed in the early 1990s of silk-screening photographic images to highly reflective glass panels, fusing image to form.
