Have you ever seen the one-and-only red print by Rembrandt The first annual Art Revolution Taipei
2011 fair (A.R.T. 2011), to be held this coming May, will invite over 187 artists from 22 nations to participate. In addition, A.R.T. will include a section called They Are Masters, in which the works of Rembrandt van Rijn, Pablo Ruiz Picasso, Joan Miró, Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí., and the like will be on display.
Some of Chagalls works created in his later years will be showcased at A.R.T. 2011, which will beautifully compliment an exhibition titled Celebration by Marc Chagall held at Taipeis National Palace Museum
between February and May!, says Lee Sun Don, the Art Director of A.R.T. 2011, We will also have Mirós artworks of equivalent quality to those collected by Tate Modern in London -- Mirós original painting juxtaposed with its print. We can even see the notes marked on the original by Miró!
The final artists proof of one of the works by Pablo Ruiz Picasso will also be exhibited. Rarely seen in the market, artists proofs by renowned masters are almost all in the collection of world-class museums.
We make a great effort to put together these masterpieces from major collectors all over the world. It is because we believe that Taiwan can, and should, hold an art fair on a truly global scale, said ART 2011s Executive Director John Cheng.
