Musée Jacquemart-André opens exhibition of works from the Ordrupgaard Collection

The exhibition includes works that are relatively unknown in France, ranging from Corot to Cézanne and Matisse, the changing landscapes of Monet, Pissarro, and Sisley, and the tender portraits of Renoir, Morisot, and Gonzalès.

PARIS.- As is the case with the Musée Jacquemart-André, the Ordrupgaard Collection was assembled by two art lovers, the Danish couple Wilhelm (1868–1936) and Henny (1870–1951) Hansen. A businessman and art connoisseur, and an independent and visionary man, Wilhelm Hansen assembled in only two years (between 1916 and 1918) a collection—which was quite unique in Europe—of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works from the second half of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A selection of more than forty works are being presented for the first time in Paris, at the Musée Jacquemart-André. The exhibition includes works that are relatively unknown in France, ranging from Corot to Cézanne and Matisse, the changing landscapes of Monet, Pissarro, and Sisley, and the tender portraits of Renoir, Morisot, and Gonzalès. The works of emblematic artists such as Degas, Manet, and Courbet, are also being exhibite ... More

With this gift, Schünemann has joined the ranks of great Hanseatic patrons of the arts. Carl Schünemann comes from a prominent publishing family in Bremen.

LONDON.- Today at Sotheby’s London, George Daniels’ legendary `Space Travellers’ re-established its supreme status as the most valuable English watch in auction history, when it sold for £3,196,250 ($4,324,526), thereby beating the record of £1.3 million it set in 2012*. Made circa 1982, this 18k yellow-gold chronograph with Daniels’ independent double-wheel escapement is one of the celebrated British watchmaker’s most important timepieces. Four bidders competed for this masterpiece of horology which went to an anonymous buyer in the room after almost 10 minutes of suspense. Named in honour of the American moon landing in 1969, the watch was described by Daniels as the kind of watch you would need on your package tour to Mars. This impressive, beautifully crafted watch is one of only two ever-made in this style and is unique in its inclusion of a chronograph. Featuring both mean-solar time and sidereal ... More

LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Getty Museum will exhibit a rare drawing by one of history’s most admired artists, Michelangelo, for a limited time from September 20 through October 29, 2017. The drawing was part of a landmark group of 16 drawings and one painting acquired by the Getty Museum in July of this year. Study of a Mourning Woman, ca. 1500-05, by Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475-1564) made headlines after it was rediscovered in the collection at Castle Howard in 1995. Before then, it had been hidden among other treasures in the family collection, unknown to scholars for hundreds of years. This is the first time the drawing has been exhibited in a museum since its rediscovery. “Michelangelo’s drawing is the supernova among a collection of some 16 extraordinarily rare and important drawings recently acquired by the Getty,” says Timothy Potts, director of the ...

CHICAGO, IL.- The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago presents the first major museum survey of Chicago-based, Iraqi-American artist Michael Rakowitz whose work explores contested social, political, and cultural histories.

Drawing on personal experience and research on these subjects, as well as history and popular culture, Rakowitz creates illustrated objects, installations, and performances that invite viewers to contemplate their complicit relationship to the political world around them, recognizing that hospitality and hostility are interlinked. The exhibition includes his major commission What Dust Will Rise? created for ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- The Austrian Cultural Forum New York presents Wild West, a group exhibition commemorating the legacy of late Austrian artist Franz West (1947-2012), on view September 20, 2017 – January 22, 2018. Curated by former West-collaborator Andreas Reiter Raabe, the show consists of works by Franz West, his New Yorkbased contemporaries, and commissioned works by emerging artists from New York and Austria. The exhibition’s title acts as a play-on-words for West’s nonconformist, anarchic approach to creating artworks and his critical place in Western art history. His deep curiosity for alternative ways of thinking and exhibiting manifested in his numerous collaborations with fellow artists and creatives. At the height of his career in the mid-1980s, West chose to exceed the boundaries of a typical ‘solo show’ and invited emerging artists to exhibit alongside him, often to the surprise of ... More

LONDON.- The Photographers’ Gallery presents Divided Self, a solo exhibition from the multi-disciplinary artist Tom Butler (b.1979, London).

Butler is renowned ... More

Gallery Springer opens exhibition of works by Peter Klare
BERLIN.- Artist Peter Klare appears for the first time at Gallery Springer. His series of large size, painted-over photographs, entitled “Silver,” forms part of an extensive collection of urban and natural landscape photos which the artist, using the medium of painting, has altered in different ways. Montevideo, Los Angeles, Berlin and London, but also beaches and forests, become the studio for his technique of overpainting. As a result of the employment of this technique, each place unleashes a distinctive palette of colors and painting composition– photograph and painting reciprocally illuminate each other. Los Angeles is dominated by a golden bronze tone, Berlin carries the color of cheap sneakers, the forest features delicately nuanced natural shades and Montevideo overflows in a silver. Strictly speaking, the technique of painting over photographs ... More

Suites of works on paper and photography complement more than 50 paintings, including many vital works from the past 15 years, and a number that have never been exhibited before.

Tate acquires Martin Parr photobooks collection
LONDON.- Built up over 25 years, the collection covers an unprecedented range of subjects, geographies and types of photographic practice, including many of the most iconic volumes in the history of photography. The 'photobook' is one of the most important ways that photographers present and share their work. Showing a number of images in a carefully selected order around a particular theme, these volumes are historical documents, communication tools, and works of art in their own right.
