PARIS.- 2021 is the bicentenary year of two events: the beginning of the Greek War of Independence, traditionally dated to 25 March 1821, and the arrival at the Louvre of the Venus de Milo in the same month of the same year – on 1 March 1821 – following its discovery in April 1820. The proximity of these two events is rich in meaning. It raises the questions of the special place of ancient Greek art in the Louvre’s collections and the singular role of Greece in the construction of the cultural identity of Europe, and of France in particular. However, the fascination with Greek antiquity continues to obscure our knowledge of modern Greece, which the French began to rediscover from the 18th century onwards. The birth of the Greek nation in the 19th century was determined to a large extent by the development of scientific archaeology and by French and German ... More

Jasper Johns, Untitled, 2020. Graphite, watercolor, and colored pencil on paper.

NEW YORK, NY.- Matthew Marks is presenting Jasper Johns: New Works on Paper, now on view at 526 West 22nd Street. The exhibition includes eighteen drawings and seven prints made over the past two years. Johns employs a wide range of media in his new works on paper including oil, acrylic, graphite, watercolor, charcoal, and oil stick. Many of the drawings include a new image for Johns based on a map entitled “Slice of the Universe,” a copy of which the astrophysicist Margaret Geller sent to the artist in 2018 after seeing an earlier painting of his incorporating an image of a swirling galaxy. Johns has overlaid the red, blue, and green dots in the map, which represent neighboring galaxies, on top of an abstract pattern based on one of Leonardo’s knot drawings. All these drawings relate to Johns’s latest painting titled Slice, 2020 included in the Whitney Museum of American Art’s concurrent survey ... More

COMPTON VERNEY.- The remarkable life and legacy of Grinling Gibbons (1648-1721) is being celebrated at Compton Verney, as part of a year-long series of events to commemorate the tercentenary of the most renowned British woodcarver of the 17th century, often called the ‘Michelangelo of Wood.’ The exhibition, Centuries in the Making - produced in partnership with the Grinling Gibbons Society - reveals the life, genius and legacy of this legendary sculptor and craftsman, who died on 3 August 1721. Arguably the greatest carver in British history, Grinling Gibbons’ legacy over the past 300 years has been to inspire craftsmanship and carving from his contemporaries to modern-day makers. Gibbons remains a potent symbol of inspiration and achievement. He carved with an unsurpassed realism that could literally fool the eye. A fine example of which is a limewood cravat (c.1690, V&A) once owned by Sir Horace Walpole. Exquisitely carved ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- The South Korean government has presented to The Metropolitan Museum of Art a gift of an exceptional work by one of the leading lacquer artists in Korea, Chung Haecho. The gift was offered in a private ceremony held at the Museum on Monday, September 20, that featured remarks by the First Lady of the Republic of Korea, Kim Jung-sook; the country’s Minister of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, Hwang Hee; and the Korean pop music group BTS, recently appointed as "special presidential envoy for future generations and culture" by President Moon Jae-in. “We are deeply grateful to the South Korean government for their continued support of The Met’s efforts to showcase Korea’s incredibly rich culture and artistic legacy,” said Max Hollein, Marina Kellen French Director of The Met. “Chung Haecho’s exquisite work is a meaningful addition to our holdings of Korean lacquerware and illustrates ...

COLOGNE.- What do we associate with Pablo Picasso? And what associations with him did the German people have in mind during the post-war years, when he was at the height of his fame? Far more than we do: This is the main idea of the exhibition, which reveals a forgotten breadth, tension, and productivity of these appropriations. It deals not only with the artist, but with his audience, which interpreted Picasso’s art in very different ways in the capitalist West and in the socialist East. The German Picasso was divided, but this division also stimulated the reception: Because everyone questioned his art, it had something to say for everyone. The exhibition features political works, such as the painting Massacre in Korea (1951) from the Musée Picasso in Paris. These are shown alongside some 150 exhibits that reflect the impact of Picasso’s work: exhibition views, posters, catalogues, press reports, letters, files, films, ... More

AUGUSTA, GA.- A master of atmosphere, mood, and light, famed Charleston artist Linda Fantuzzo is represented by more than twenty paintings drawn from her most recent body of work in a new exhibition Linda Fantuzzo: Penumbra. It is on view at the Morris Museum of Art from September 25 through December 12, 2021. The landscape and interior paintings and drawings in this exhibition are rendered with a quiet, abstracted simplicity. The inclusion of stairs, ladders, windows, and doors suggests an unseen yet palpable human presence. The title Penumbra, a term that means “a space of partial illumination,” references light’s transitions. In these works Fantuzzo connects the literal transitions of light to the metaphorical transitions and impermanence of the human experience. “The work in the present exhibition is rendered with a quiet simplicity, while the inclusion of stairs, ladders, windows, and doors in many of them suggests an ...

BASEL.- Dystopia and Black Lives Matter feature prominently at Art Basel, the world's top contemporary art fair, which throws open its doors to the public this weekend. The giant annual fair in the Swiss city of Basel is above all a commercial event, where artists and galleries come to meet wealthy collectors. But the fair is also very popular with art lovers who come for the simple pleasure of browsing the works on show. Some 93,000 visitors came through the doors during the 2019 edition, with last year's event having been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Art Basel exhibits major works every year in a section where paintings, sculptures and installations are grouped together for sale to museums and large collections. Among the 2021 highlights are a canvas by the Guyanese-British artist Frank Bowling, a large painting by Britain's David Hockney or Swiss artist Urs ... More

Remedios Varo, Roulotte, 1955.

by Julia Bozzone

NEW YORK, NY.- In the opening of Thomas Pynchon’s postmodern novel “The Crying of Lot 49” (1965), tears stream down the face of his protagonist, Oedipa Maas, as she takes in a surrealist painting of “a number of frail girls with heart-shaped faces” who appear to be “prisoners in the top room of a circular tower.” The girls are embroidering a kind of tapestry that streams out of the windows. The scene is fictional, but the piece is not: It is “Embroidering the Earth’s Mantle” (1961) by Remedios Varo, a Spanish painter who immigrated to Mexico City during World War II. In elaborately detailed, often allegorical paintings, Varo depicted convent schoolgirls embarking on strange adventures; androgynous, ascetic figures absorbed in scientific, musical or artistic discovery; and solitary women — some of whom resembled the slender, striking Varo herself — having a transcendent experience. Her style was reminiscent of Renaissance art in its exquisite ... More

Rana Hamadeh presents a new stage of her evolving animation film Standard_Deviation at Vienna's Secession
VIENNA.- Rana Hamadeh’s works are characterized by engulfing delirious sonic and visual environments. She has been developing an ‘operatic practice,’ experimenting with writing and composing, and testing models for collective (and artificially-extended) forms of thinking and study. In thematic terms, her work is dedicated to an ongoing scrutiny of the epistemologies and technologies of justice. To this end, it examines tropes of violence that find their genealogies in the linguistic, legal, and theatrical infrastructures shaping our understandings of justice. At the Secession, Hamadeh presents a new stage of her evolving animation film Standard_Deviation. The film, which was developed in close cooperation ... More

Foam opens an exhibition of the brilliant but forgotten work of Shigeru Onishi
AMSTERDAM.- Foam is presenting the brilliant but forgotten work of Shigeru Onishi (1928-1994). Onishi graduated in topology at the University of Hokkaido in 1953, after which he began applying his mathematical theories to photography. Although he abandoned photography after 1957, he did produce a short-lived but extraordinarily body of work with which he distanced himself from other movements and ideas in the Japanese photography of his time. In his photographs, Shigeru Onishi attempts to transcend time and space: his photographs present multiple moments brought together in a single image. He disregarded all the rules of the darkroom. For instance, he 'painted' the photographic emulsion onto the photo paper with a brush, deliberately creating irregularities in the development of the image. He used acids to cause deliberate ...

Far-out fleet from Mad Max up for sale in Australia
SYDNEY.- If you need a ride fast enough to outpace the apocalypse, a rare auction in Australia is selling a menacing fleet of vehicles from "Mad Max: Fury Road" for any aspiring desert warrior. Whether you're a would-be marauder or just want to raise eyebrows at the drive-through window, the sale of 13 vehicles from the 2015 dystopian blockbuster has the goods. "The first time I saw them, I'm pretty sure I heard one of the cars saying: 'I need to be driven in anger,'" curator Geoff McKew of Lloyds Auctions told AFP in Sydney. Among the vehicles is the gargantuan War Rig -- a hulking tanker driven by Charlize Theron's character Furiosa -- and the Razor Cola, which went up against Tom Hardy's "Mad" Max Rockatansky. With offers closing on Sunday, the current owners will only sell all 13 together in an effort to preserve a piece of film history. "They ... More

Roger Michell, director of 'Notting Hill,' is dead at 65
NEW YORK, NY.- Roger Michell, the British theater and film director best known for “Notting Hill,” the wildly popular 1999 romantic comedy that somewhat overshadowed the rest of his extensive and diverse body of work, died Wednesday. He was 65. His family announced his death in a statement released by his publicist. The statement did not say where he died or what the cause was. Michell’s first film, a 1995 adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel “Persuasion,” caught the eye of screenwriter Richard Curtis, who had scored a major success with “Four Weddings and a Funeral” the year before. Curtis was looking for someone to direct his next screenplay, about a humble London bookseller who falls in love with a movie star. Although he found the idea of trying to match a blockbuster like “Four Weddings and a Funeral” to be daunting, Michell said yes ... More

On a day like today, French painter and lithographer Théodore Géricault was born
September 26, 1791. Jean-Louis André Théodore Géricault (26 September 1791 - 26 January 1824) was an influential French painter and lithographer, whose best-known painting is The Raft of the Medusa. Although he died young, he was one of the pioneers of the Romantic movement. Born in Rouen, France, Géricault was educated in the tradition of English sporting art by Carle Vernet and classical figure composition by Pierre-Narcisse Guérin, a rigorous classicist who disapproved of his student's impulsive temperament while recognizing his talent.
