When visiting Michelangelo's David, she brings a duster

Restorer Eleonora Pucci at work in the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence, Italy, on Nov. 21, 2022. Pucci spends most of her days ensuring that the museum’s entire collection, including its paintings, is in good shape. (Chiara Negrello/The New York Times).

FLORENCE.- Imagine a job that lets you get up close and personal — really, really up close and personal — with one of the world’s most famous statues. It is one perk of being the in-house restorer of the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence, where Eleonora Pucci’s task is to regularly dust Michelangelo’s David, which she described recently as exhilarating, if somewhat nerve-wracking. “To be able to contribute, even in a small way, to the conservation of David’s beauty” makes hers “the best job in the world,” Pucci said. “Is there anything greater than passing on beauty?” It was early last Monday, the one day the Galleria is closed to the public, and the clanging of metal echoed throughout the museum as a specialized team built a scaffold tower in the airy rotunda that housed the David. Over the course of the morning, the tower would be gingerly repositioned so that Pucci could reach the 17-foot-tall statue from all sides. Pucci ni ... More

Heard Museum presents new exhibition, "Substance of Stars"   Rare Spanish bronze in the spotlight at Roland Auctions NY December 3rd Fine Estates Auction   Long-concealed Rembrandt back in The Hague

SkyDome, "Substance of Stars".

PHOENIX, ARIZ.- The Heard Museum is currently presenting "Substance of Stars", which opened on November 6, 2022. This multi-sensory experience takes visitors on a storytelling journey with four distinct communities; the Haudenosaunee, Yup’ik, Diné, and Akimel O’odham as they share their unique perspectives, stories and experiences. The exhibition incorporates Indigenous languages, spiritual and foundational knowledge, and value systems which figure prominently in the identities of Indigenous peoples. The exhibition features a multi-level excursion of historic and contemporary works centered around an impressive 360-degree theatrical experience titled the Sky-Dome. The Sky-Dome has edge-blend technology that offers dynamic changing landscapes by the four seasons on 20-foot-high walls.

Rembrandt, Self-portrait, 1643. Private collection.

THE HAGUE.- This week, a long-concealed self-portrait of Rembrandt is set to return to The Hague. From Tuesday 29 November onwards, it will be on display in Escher in The Palace, which was home to it from 1850 to 1894, when the palace belonged successively to Prince Hendrik of the Netherlands and his sister Great Duchess Sophie. The painting has not been seen in the Netherlands since 1898 – for nearly 125 years – and has not even been on public display since 1967. The self-portrait is being given a unique spot among the famous self-portraits by Dutch printmaker M.C. Escher, whose work has been on display in the palace since 2002. The Rembrandt will be exhibited here until 29 January 2023. This unique event is the result of recent research into the painting’s history by Rembrandt specialist Gary Schwartz. Schwartz drew on numerous unpublished documents in the Royal House Archive, the archives of the American ... More

Alicja Kwade debuts public artwork for Art Basel Miami Beach   Hollis Taggart announces representation of three American artists active in the postwar era   Austin Eddy now represented by Galerie Eva Presenhuber

Alicja Kwade, Pretty Pity, 2022. Photo: Silvia Ros.

MIAMI, FLA.- Kwade takes a new approach on her iconic marble spheres with ‘Pretty Pity’, a large-scale installation at ARCA’s Wynwood showroom. Kwade, a contemporary artist known for her enigmatic sculptures and installations that explore concepts of space, time, science, and philosophy through immersive experiences about discovery confronts viewers to question their perception of reality. Located in front of the iconic façade of ARCA’s showroom in Wynwood, the artwork titled ‘Pretty Pity’ takes a humorous approach to the use of its natural stone materials sourced from ARCA’s catalog. The monumental installation, featuring four sturdy and beautiful spherical layers of billion- year-old stone —such as Rosa Valencia and Marrón Emperador, from Spain, and Giallo Sienna and Bianco Carrara, from Italy— is shaped into the silhouette of melting ice cream scoops, an overt and ironic nod to the global warming crisis. ‘Pretty Pity’ ...

Norman Carton (1908-1980), Hildring #625, circa 1954. Oil on canvas, 90 1/4 x 58 in. (229.2 x 147.3 cm).

NEW YORK, NY.- Hollis Taggart announced the representation of the estates of two artists – Sheila Isham and Norman Carton – along with the artist Albert Kotin. All three American painters worked primarily in abstraction, despite their very different lives and careers. Sheila Isham (born 1927) traveled extensively following the Second World War, leading to an abstract style that draws from various cultural influences. Following their immigration to the United States from Eastern Europe, Norman Carton (1908-1980) and Albert Kotin (1907-1980) both worked for different government art programs before becoming actively involved in the New York art scene of the 1940s and 1950s. For varying reasons, the contributions of all three artists have been under-recognized. Continuing the gallery’s commitment to promoting new narratives and scholarship about postwar American artists, Hollis Taggart ... More

Austin Eddy, Photo: Sam Schmieg.

ZURICH.- Galerie Eva Presenhuber announced the representation of the American artist Austin Eddy. A new painting by Eddy will be featured in the gallery’s presentation at Art Basel Miami Beach 2022. His next solo exhibition with the gallery will be at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Vienna in January 2024. In 2022, Eddy’s paintings were exhibited at Eva Presenhuber's showroom in New York and in Kastro on the island of Antiparos, Greece as a special summer project. I have been observing Austin Eddy’s work for some years and am thrilled to announce that he has joined the gallery. An exceptional artist, Austin creates works that are rooted in art historical considerations—from early twentieth-century Cubism and Fauvism to Color Field Painting of the post-war years—but born of the present moment. His works are an amalgam of colors and shapes. The flattening of perspective and the distortion of scale serve ... More

BRUSSELS.- At the November 25 Council of Ministers, the government appointed Christophe Slagmuylder as Director General of Bozar for a six-year term. He will start his new position in Brussels as of 1 February 2023. Christophe Slagmuylder (born 1967, Brussels) has been active in the broad arts sector since 1991, with a focus on the performing arts. He made his name at the Kunstenfestivaldesarts, where he worked from 2002 to 2018, succeeding founder Frie Leysen as general and artistic director in 2007. This international arts festival featuring contemporary theatre, performance and dance takes place annually at various locations in Brussels. His career took an international turn with his appointment in 2018 as general and artistic director at the Wiener Festwochen, the prestigious multidisciplinary arts festival in Vienna. His Brussels network, his experience with major international collaborations and his feel for contemporary arts ... More

DENVER, CO.- The architecture firm Tres Birds has won the prestigious American Architecture Award for the Art Preserve, the world’s first museum dedicated to artist-built environments, opened by the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in August 2021 in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Fresh to the market quintessential Lowry takes top spot at Bonhams Modern British and Irish art sale   An 'all star' comics and comic art auction for the ages featuring some of DC's most memorable (and haunting) moments   Del Kathryn Barton: Love Wants to Give, her first solo exhibition on view at albertz benda

Street Scene by L.S. Lowry. Sold for £1,002,300. Courtesy Sotheby's.

LONDON.- Street Scene, an archetypal painting by L. S. Lowry, was the top selling lot at Bonhams Modern British and Irish Art sale in London on Tuesday 22 November 2022. The painting, which had been in the same family for almost 50 years and was fresh to the market, sold for £1,002,300, having been estimated at £800,000-1,200,000. The sale made a total of £4,148,168. Penny Day, Bonhams Head of Modern British and Irish Art, said: “In a strong sale, Lowry’s Street Scene stood out. He was at the height of his powers when he painted the work in the early 1940s and it had all the elements that make his output from this period so attractive and desirable.” The sale also offered works by major names of Modern British Art in an outstanding private family collection of works from a Knightsbridge ...

Mike Grell All-Star Comics #58 Power Girl Cover Original Art (DC, 1976).

DALLAS, TX.- For comic book collectors of a certain age, All Star Comics No. 58, published the year of the bicentennial, was that one book never to be parted with – never to be loaned out to a friend, never to be sold by Mom at the used book store across town. All Star Comics was the book that launched comicdom’s original superhero team, the Justice Society of America, until its renaming and retirement in 1951. But out of nowhere in 1976 it returned to the spinner racks, where its colorful cover beckoned every kid with a quarter to spare. There was Robin in a new costume! The JSA’s Flash and Green Lantern and Doctor Fate and Wildcat! Wally Wood art! A Mike Grell cover! And above all, Power Girl making her debut as Superman’s Earth-2 cousin while sporting a peekaboo costume that left little ... More

Del Kathryn Barton [Australian b. 1972]. love wants to give, 2022, acrylic on linen, 78 3/4 x 94 1/2 inches, 200 x 240 cm.

LOS ANGELES, CALIF.- The contemporary art gallery albertz benda, Los Angeles is opened the exhibition Love Wants To Give this past November 18th, Del Kathryn Barton’s first Los Angeles solo exhibition and third solo presentation with the gallery. Del Kathryn Barton returns to the United States with a body of work that is expansive, powerful and interconnected in its exploration and construction of love. Love Wants to Give unites Barton’s distinct visual languages with the notion of art as a life source that is rooted in an ever-present, humming undercurrent of love. The works are laden with the artist’s signature hyperbolic colour-palettes and details, while remaining grounded in earthiness of Australian-alluding flora and fauna. The boundaries between ... More

World auction record for Tsarouchis at Bonhams Greek sale
PARIS.- La garde oubliée by one of the leading painters of the ‘30s Generation Yiannis Tsarouchis (1910-1989) set a new world record for a work by the artist at auction when it sold for €441,375 at Bonhams Greek Sale in Paris on 24 November 2022. Once in the collection of legendary gallerist Alexander Iolas, it encompassed the defining elements of the painter’s universe, including the sailor – his signature subject and one of the most celebrated images of 20th century Greek art. It had been estimated at €80,000-120,000. Another work by Tsarouchis, Épicerie à Mytiline from 1965, sold for €189,375 against an estimate of €80,000-120,000. The sale, which consisted of 136 lots, made a total of €3,482,138. • Épithalamique by Yiannis Moralis (1916-2009).

Galerie Miranda opens an exhibition of works by artist Tanya Marcuse
PARIS.- Galerie Miranda is presenting, for the first time in France, the beautiful and fascinating series Undergarments & Armor by NYC-based artist Tanya Marcuse, made in 2002-3 with the support of a Guggenheim Fellowship. The artist anchors the project in typological foundations, formally expressed with highly precise yet sensual black & white pigment prints. A lavish 3-volume slipcased monograph of the series was published by Nazraeli Press in 2005 with an essay by Valerie Steele, chief curator and acting director of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology. "I traveled to archives and museums in the U.S. and England photographing undergarments, armor, and the museum forms that populate the storerooms; breastplates, helmets, corsets, bustles, mannequins and dress forms. The earliest objects date to the 14th century while no object is dated past 1900, ruling out the possibility ... More

Chad Fisher, renowned sculptor, hired as sculpture chair of the Lyme Academy of Art
OLD LYME, CONN.- The Lyme Academy of Fine Arts announced the arrival of internationally-renowned sculptor Chad Fisher as the new Charlotte Colby Danly Sculpture Chair. This appointment marks a bold step in the Lyme Academy’s move to build the premier figurative sculpting program in the United States. Set to launch in Fall 2023, this multi-year, intensive program further expands the breadth of the Academy’s rich fine arts curriculum, while deepening its commitment to its mission. “I am beyond thrilled and honored to be the incoming Sculpture Chair at Lyme Academy,” says Fisher. “To teach is to provide students with a space to grow emotionally, intellectually, and experientially. As an art educator, I am here to help amplify each student’s dream through a very human and personal experience, and to provide the tools that are necessary for them to grow expansively, ... More

In 'KPOP,' Korean pop and Broadway meet (too) cute
NEW YORK, NY.- “A lot of people come to these things and they don’t even understand the language,” says Harry, a filmmaker who passes for the villain in the noisy yet skimpy new musical “KPOP.” “So what are they watching for?” Good question. For the record, the answer provided by Tiny, a member of a Korean pop group called RTMIS, is delivered, unlike a lot of the show, in English: “Perfection, Mr. Harry. OK?” And it’s true that if you enjoy the precision-drilled dancing, meticulous melisma and auto-tuned sentiments that have turned K-pop into a worldwide sensation over the past 10 years, you are likely to be among those cheering the musical’s Broadway incarnation, which opened Sunday at Circle in the Square. But those who aren’t hard-core fans of the genre or don’t understand Korean — let alone those who saw the radically different and far superior off-Broadway version in ... More

A mural celebrated migrant workers. When the World Cup began, it was gone.
LUSAIL, QATAR.- The giant mural with thousands of faces was certainly an arresting feature for visitors of Qatar’s showpiece stadium in the months leading to the World Cup. When the buses stopped and the visiting journalists stepped out, they were directed toward a spot near Gate 32. There, in the shadow of the vast golden bowl of the $1 billion Lusail stadium, was an intricate mosaic stretching out and up along a long wall nearly 20 feet high. On it were passport-style photographs of men, staring straight ahead. The mural, a representative of Qatar’s organizing committee said, was a way for the country to pay homage to the army of men who had toiled for years under the scorching desert sun to build the cathedrals to the country’s World Cup ambitions. But then the World Cup started, and the faces were gone. Instead, the VIPs and assorted high-rollers who roll up in expensive cars and luxury ... More

Rare Meissen red-ground bottle vases lead Bonhams 500 years of European Ceramics sale
LONDON.- An extremely rare pair of Meissen red-ground bottle vases made in around 1735 lead Bonhams 500 Years of European Ceramics sale in London on Wednesday 7 December 2022. They are estimated at £120,000 - 180,000/€140,000 - 210,000. Nette Megens, Bonhams Head of Continental Ceramics, said: “This form of bottle vase was almost certainly made exclusively for the Dresden court since all of them are marked with the AR monogram for Augustus Rex. The vases were produced in several sizes and ground colours and were most notably displayed in the Japanese Palace in Dresden. The pair of vases in the sale are so special and desirable because of their size – they are the largest of their type – and most importantly for their red ground-colour which is unique among vases of this shape (red was in any event among the rarest ground colours employed at the Meissen factory). ...

At the Big Apple circus, it's a family affair
NEW YORK, NY.- Nepotism babies, performers who were launched into the entertainment industry with a boost from a family member or two, have a bad reputation. Maybe they deserve a better one. During the Big Apple Circus’ “Dream Big,” the latest splendid show to alight beneath its lavish tent in a corner of Lincoln Center’s plaza, second-, third- and fourth-generation performers swoop, swing, somersault and traverse a high wire 20 feet in the air. In the short videos that precede the acts, each credits their success to the mothers, fathers, uncles or grandparents who went into the ring before them. Nik Wallenda, the headliner, can trace his big top lineage back nearly 250 years, as can his 69-year-old mother, Delilah Wallenda, who helps him onto that wire. Sure, these performers started their careers a couple of rungs up the ladder. Then again, that ladder is unstable ... More

Collin Sekajugo joins Blum & Poe
NEW YORK, NY.- Blum & Poe announced the representation of Ugandan artist Collin Sekajugo. Sekajugo’s first presentation with the gallery will debut at Art Basel Miami Beach later this week, followed by a forthcoming solo exhibition at the gallery. Collin Sekajugo approaches his work from a distinct, aesthetic departure point that resides in his repeated return to pop culture and the omnipresent influence exuded by the global mainstream, conversing with and critiquing its many biases across visual, oral, and digital cultures. Since 2012, Sekajugo has worked with the manipulation of the common stock image to reveal its inherent biases of entitlement and privilege largely modelled on the Western self. Conceptually, Sekajugo’s works become pure theater, a hacking of identity that exposes truths behind these stock images that quietly continue to colonize the entire globe by the weight ... More

Frank's Files: Magnificent Jewels



On a day like today, American painter James Rosenquist was born
November 29, 1933. James Rosenquist (November 29, 1933 - March 31, 2017) was an American artist and one of the protagonists in the pop art movement.
