Bavarian State Painting Collections restitutes 'The Raising of Lazarus'

‘The Raising of Lazarus’, c. 1530–1540, South-German master. Softwood, 107 x 160.2 cm .

MUNICH.- Since 1998, the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen (Bavarian State Painting Collections) has restituted a total of twelve works from eight collections. With this 13th restitution, the Bavarian State Painting Collections and the joint heirs of James von Bleichröder have reached a good solution for all parties, after lengthy and intensive groundwork. The case concerns the painting: ‘The Raising of Lazarus’, c. 1530–1540, South-German master. Softwood, 107 x 160.2 cm As early as 2004, the Bavarian State Painting Collections made the painting’s provenance public in the richly annotated publication ‘Die Kunstsammlung Hermann Görings’, written by the provenance researcher Ilse von zur Mühlen. Two years later, the painting was posted on the ‘Lost Art’ database, directly following the database’s creation, because its origin in the Göring collection suggested that it had might have been a work ...

MADRID.- Surrealist master Salvador Dali's trademark moustache is in perfect shape in its "ten past ten" position, officials said Friday, a day after his remains were exhumed to settle a paternity claim. "I was very anxious about what I would see," said Narcis Bardalet, the forensic expert who embalmed Dali back in 1989 and who was at his grave the moment he was exhumed on Thursday night for DNA test. "I was absolutely stunned. It was like a miracle...his moustache appeared at 10 past 10 and his hair was intact," Bardalet added during an interview with the public television station TVE1, referring to the positions of the hands on a clock. The arduous task of exhumation involved removing a slab weighing more than a tonne that covered his tomb at the Dali Theatre-Museum in Figueras in northeastern Spain where the ... More

Lucian Freud, The Painter ́s Mother, 1982. Etching, 29,5 x 24,2 cm © The Lucian Freud Archive/Bridgeman Images. UBS Art Collection.

BERLIN.- Lucian Freud (1922–2011) is one of Great Britain’s most important painters. His figurative works are among the masterpieces of the 20th century. His fame is owed mainly to his portraits of people and animals, which he observed in an almost scientifically precise manner and then captured on canvas or paper. His paintings are examples of intensive analytical observation. At the same time, they are moving studies of transience. They are unadorned. Every wrinkle, every scar, all the irregularities of the skin and traces of life are captured. For the first time, 51 of his etchings are now being shown in Berlin, the city of his birth. They are accompanied by one watercolour and two paintings, among them the masterpiece Double Portrait. All these 54 works are on loan from the UBS Art Collection, one of the most internationally renowned corporate collections. “We are proud to partner with the Martin-Gropius-Bau to ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Marc Straus announced that Otis Jones has joined the New York gallery. Born in Galveston, Texas in 1946, Jones has created a distinctive body of abstract paintings in his long and illustrious career. His sculpted paintings may seem muted at first until we perceive its hand-made quality, its nuances and subtleties. Jones tacks roughly-cut canvases over thick, irregularly shaped wood frames. The layered edges of plywood and staples remain exposed and celebrated. Jones then paints numerous layers, repeatedly sanding and reworking the surface to attain a natural abraded texture. A few formal elements of small circles or lines are added or excavated from under-painting. As a result, his paintings are sincere and full of character, bearing traces of its genealogy. Marc Straus, founder of the New York gallery comments, “These are such convincing works and yet I almost do not know where to place them as the work ... More

NEW YORK (AFP).- Jim Henson, the relentless innovator who gave the world Kermit the Frog and "The Muppet Show," is getting a permanent tribute in New York, nearly 30 years after his death. If rarely seen on camera, Henson lived and breathed television, hooking adult Americans on puppets, turning puppetry into prime-time entertainment and for 25 years gave life to Kermit, the world's most famous puppet. Not only did he create "The Muppet Show" and several of Kermit's contemporaries, he gave birth to Elmo, Big Bird, Bert and Ernie of "Sesame Street" fame, "Fraggle Rock" and movies "Dark Crystal" (1982) and "Labyrinth" (1986). On Saturday, the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens opens a permanent exhibition exploring Henson's work, challenging visitors to look beyond his most famous creations at the astonishingly ...

On a day like today, American painter Edward Hopper was born
July 22, 2017. Edward Hopper (July 22, 1882 - May 15, 1967) was a prominent American realist painter and printmaker. While he was most popularly known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist and printmaker in etching. Both in his urban and rural scenes, his spare and finely calculated renderings reflected his personal vision of modern American life. In this image: A woman looks at the painting "South Carolina Morning" by American artist Edward Hopper during a press conference in Hamburg, Germany, on Thursday, May 7, 2009.
