Images of children in Spanish Romantic art on view at the Prado Museum in Madrid

Exhibition galleries © Museo Nacional del Prado.

MADRID.- The Museo del Prado is showing a group of eight works painted between 1842 and 1855 which have been selected from the numerous portraits of children in its collection dating from the reign of Isabel II with the aim of emphasising two of the most important centres for Romantic art in Spain: Madrid and Seville. The display of this selection will also allow for the first public presentation of an almost unknown work by Esquivel that has recently been added to the Museum’s collection. These portraits reveal different interpretations of childhood, a theme that became particularly popular among Romantic painters in a reflection of their clients’ new interests. The idea of childhood as a period of life with its own merits rather than a mere preliminary to adulthood emerged in the Enlightenment and achieved its maximum expression with Romanticism, given that childhood embodied qualities highly appreciated by that moveme ...

PARIS.- Fondation Louis Vuitton presents the exhibition “Icons of Modern Art: The Shchukin Collection” from 22 October 2016, to 20 February 2017. The exhibition is part of the official programme of the France-russia year of cultural tourism 2016–17 and constitutes as one of its most prominent events. The exhibition pays tribute to one of the greatest art patrons of the early 20th century, Sergei Shchukin, the visionary Russian collector of French modern art. From 1898, Sergei Shchukin, a leading Moscow industrialist, quickly became an integral member of the Parisian arts milieu of the era, forging relationships with modern art dealers Paul Durand-Ruel, Ambroise Vollard, and Berthe Weill, then Georges Bernheim and Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler. His friendship with celebrated artists like Henri Matisse heavily influenced the formation of his collection, one of the most radical of its time. Thanks to the generous particip ... More

Gustave Caillebotte, Voiliers sur la Seine à Argenteuil, executed in 1886.

NEW YORK, NY.- Dickinson is participating in the inaugural TEFAF New York, taking place from 21-26 October, where they are showcasing a range of Old Master, Impressionist and classical Modern paintings, drawings and sculptures. The highlight of their stand is Gustave Caillebotte’s Voiliers sur la Seine à Argenteuil, executed in 1886, a celebration of the artist’s passion for yachting. Caillebotte’s paintings of sailboats were never exhibited during his lifetime and rarely come onto the market, making Voiliers sur la Seine à Argenteuil – hidden in a private collection for nearly half a century – a remarkable opportunity for collectors. Caillebotte remains one of the less widely-known members of the Impressionist group, liberated from any obligation to sell his work during his lifetime by his wealth and status as a gentleman. His paintings of sailboats on the Seine near his home at Petit Gennevilliers, across ... More

HASTINGS.- Curator James Russell is a man on a mission.

Century: 100 Modern British Artists (23 October 2016 – 8 January 2017), isn't just the most-wide ranging Modern British show in years, it's an adventure in art - by turns funny and moving, quiet and boisterous, technically dazzling and delightfully simple.

I hope people will come away feeling that Modern British art is lively a ... More

BILBAO.- The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents Albert Oehlen: Behind the Image , a powerful artistic statement by one of the most influential painters of recent decades and one of the most controversial artists of postwar Germany. The contemporary pictorial style of Albert Oehlen (b. 1954, Krefeld, Germany) is an amalgam of methods borrowed from the advertising industry, Expressionist brushwork, Surrealist gesture, and computer-generated images. With his work Oehlen fuels the recurring debate begun in the second half of the 20th century about the death of painting, and he does so precisely by using painting as an expressive medium. In recent years, his paintings have attained what the artist defines as his main subject matter: artistic freedom. This liberty is evident in the way he fearlessly approaches each canvas, using ...

NEW YORK, NY.- The Frick’s Board of Trustees introduces its Acquisitions Fund, established especially to help the museum continue to purchase objects that enhance and complement its holdings for the enjoyment of the public. Acquisitions have a long history at the Frick. Soon after the museum opened in 1935, Henry Clay Frick’s daughter Helen wrote to members of the museum’s acquisitions committee that “to cease buying works of art unless compelled to do so for financial reasons would be a great detriment to The Frick Collection,” and that it “was the intent of the Founder that great works of art should be added from time to time…” Thanks to this far-sighted view, the permanent collection has nearly doubled since Mr. Frick’s death through donations of art from private collections and select purchases including well-known and cherished works such as Ingres’s Comtesse d’Haussonville, Memling’s P ...

Viktor & Rolf: Fashion Artists, running until February 2017 at the NGV, Melbourne, Australia, explores Viktor & Rolf’s career-defining ethos of wearable art. As self-confessed outsiders of the fashion world, since forming their artistic partnership in 1992, fashion artists Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren have gained critical acclaim for their rebellious approach to design, technical virtuosity, and deep knowledge of fashion and art history. Throughout their illustrious twenty-five year career, Viktor & Rolf have carved a contrary identity that pushes the boundaries between art and fashion, often juxtaposing contrasting elements, such as romance and anarchy, exuberance and control, classicism and rebellion. The duo have b ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- In their first joint exhibition since announcing dual representation in 2015, P•P•O•W and Galerie Lelong present the two-part solo exhibition by Carolee Schneemann, Further Evidence - Exhibit A and Further Evidence - Exhibit B. Taking Schneemann’s research on both the physical and metaphorical manifestations of the body as its starting point, the exhibition merges Schneemann’s critical but lesser-known works of the eighties, nineties, and the present. Both presentations are centered on representation of bodies in captivity and visualizations of repressed histories of control and confinement. Though Schneemann’s works from the sixties and seventies involving performance and the body are widely known, her later works have not received the same critical attention. Further Evidence – Exhibit A and Further Evidence – Exhibit B present a ... More

Joseph Grazi presents "Cecil: A Love Story" at Joseph Gross Gallery
NEW YORK, NY.- Joseph Gross Gallery is presenting Cecil: A Love Story, a multimedia exhibition that examines the public's erratic moral compass through the guise of perceived aesthetic value in the animal kingdom via the story of Cecil the Lion.

The hunter responsible, an American dentist named Walter Palmer, had become the most hated man on the planet overnight. Cecil: A Love Story scrutinizes the inconsistencies of society’s moral compass in relation to the perceived beauty of certain animals - namely, the lion. Through various media, the artist creates a dialogue surrounding how we regard and process atrocities committed against creatures deemed ... More
