BOSTON, MASS.- The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, has reached an agreement to return View of Beverwijk (1646) by Salomon van Ruysdael, which had been looted during World War II, to the heirs of Ferenc Chorin (1879–1964). The Jewish collector had deposited the painting along with other works at the Hungarian Commercial Bank of Pest in 1943, before he and his family fled Hungary in 1944. At the end of World War II, the bank reported that Chorin’s vault had been emptied in January 1945, during the Siege of Budapest. Despite the family’s efforts to locate the missing contents of the vault in the postwar years, they were unable to recover the Ruysdael until new provenance information was published in recent years. The painting is currently on public view at Christie’s in New York, prior to an auction later in the year. “We are pleased to have worked so quickly and amicably with the heirs of Ferenc Chorin to redress this historical lo ...

NEW YORK, NY.- The Frick Collection announces the acquisition of an important gallery archive that will deepen and enrich the resources of the Frick Art Reference Library. The archive of Rosenberg & Stiebel, a transatlantic family firm with a notable history of private and institutional clients for nearly 150 years, has been gifted to the Frick by Gerald G. Stiebel, complemented by the concurrent gift of the related archive of Penelope Hunter-Stiebel. Comments Ian Wardropper, Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Director of the Frick, “We are extremely grateful to Gerald and Penelope for these important gifts to the Frick Art Reference Library. The Rosenberg & Stiebel archive was one of the last major dealer archives held in private hands in the western hemisphere, and it is exceptionally important to preserve and make accessible.” Stephen J. Bury, the Frick’s Andrew W. Mellon Chief Librarian, remarks, “This archive ... More

Jean Francois Millet, Woman Drawing Water from a Well, c. 1848–49. Black conte crayon on paper 111⁄4 x 81⁄2 in.

NEW YORK, NY.- Jill Newhouse Gallery, in cooperation with Galerie de Bayser, Paris presents the first show in the United States dedicated to the drawings of Jean-François Millet (1814-1875). On view are nineteen works on paper in all media including graphite, ink, watercolor and pastel showing the full range of this important artist’s work. J.F. Millet was one of the greatest Realist painters of the 19th century, but his reputation has been traditionally defined by his three best known works, The Sower (1850), The Gleaners(1857), and The Angelus (1857-9) which were often seen as overly sentimentalized portrayals of life in rural France in the mid 19th century. Seen through the lens of his works on paper, Millet’s art can now be newly viewed as radical and modern, both in the use of medium and in the creation of images which are a homage to a moment in time that was rapidly ...

NEW YORK, NY.- Few people have done more to advance the cause of people seeking to recover property lost to the Nazis in World War II than Stuart E. Eizenstat. As a diplomat and lawyer, Eizenstat, 79, has advised five U.S. administrations, including that of President Joe Biden, on Holocaust issues. He has negotiated with European governments and companies, recovering more than $8 billion for Holocaust survivors and families, and helped write the landmark Washington Principles on returning looted art, a treaty now used around the world to “expeditiously” promote “just and fair solutions” to restitution claims. “No self-respecting government, art dealer, private collector, museum or auction house should trade in or possess art stolen by the Nazis,” Eizenstat said in an essay in 2019. But, as a lawyer, Eizenstat had never gotten involved in an individual restitution case. That changed a few months ago when he agreed ... More

LONDON.- Dreweatts announced the discovery of a new work by one of the most important British artists of the 20th century, the esteemed British sculptor Henry Moore (1898-1986). After two years of working with the Henry Moore Foundation and the family of the owner, former Publisher and Editor of The Architectural Review magazine, Hubert de Cronin Hastings (1902-1986) the sculpture, titled Mother and Child has now been authenticated. Commenting on the discovery, Dreweatts’ specialist Francesca Whitham, said: “It has been such a fascinating journey working with this rare Henry Moore sculpture. I was elated, after many months of delays due to covid restrictions, to finally receive the letter from the foundation authenticating the piece as a genuine Moore. Dreweatts are honoured to bring this sculpture to the market for the very first time, presenting an opportunity to purchase a unique and rare ... More

BOLOGNA.- Fronte e retro (Front & back), the solo exhibition by Italo Zuffi (Imola, 1969) curated by Lorenzo Balbi and Davide Ferri opened at MAMbo - Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna on January 20, 2022. The exhibition project, which will continue later in the space of Palazzo De' Toschi, venue devoted to the contemporary art projects promoted by Banca di Bologna, allows to present for the first time in an extensive way the work of one of the most important Italian artists born in the late 1960s. For MAMbo, the exhibition continues the research on Italian art that the museum has been carrying out for years, confirming the line of survey that historically descends from Galleria d’Arte Moderna, presenting an artist linked to the territory in which the museum itself is located; while for Banca di Bologna, in the Sala Convegni of Palazzo De' Toschi, this is the first solo exhibition dedicated to an Italian artist. Fronte e retro is ... More

Offered at an estimate of $15,000-25,000, this handbill is the only known surviving example of its kind, and is a significant artifact from an election where any extant handbills are rare.

PHILADELPHIA, PA.- When Thomas Jefferson and John Adams went head-to-head in the 1796 United States presidential election, it was the first time that the young nation’s presidential succession system was put to the test, following George Washington’s two uncontested terms. This extremely rare campaign handbill, discovered in Maryland and on offer in Freeman’s Books and Manuscripts auction on February 17, represents the first time such campaign material was used to influence voters on a national scale. Offered at an estimate of $15,000-25,000, this handbill is the only known surviving example of its kind, and is a significant artifact from an election where any extant handbills are rare. The pro-Jefferson text takes the form of a catechism and poses ten questions to its reader and offers ten answers in turn. It casts Adams and his Federalist colleagues as ... More

NEW YORK, NY.- Gladstone Gallery is presenting new works by Sharon Lockhart. This expansive, ambitious exhibition includes a new film installation, photography, paintings, and sculpture. Celebrated for her work in film and photography, Lockhart has for the past few years investigated mediums that translate her longstanding interest/devotion to form, concept, and structure into objects such as cast bronze sculpture, paintings, and neon. The exhibition’s centerpiece is Lockhart’s film EVENTIDE. Shot in Gotland, Sweden, EVENTIDE is a 30-minute single take filmed as dusk turned to night during the annual Perseid meteor shower. From its stationary position, the camera records the slow entrance and exit of several figures exploring the rocky ... More

TEL AVIV.- CCA Tel Aviv is presenting a solo exhibition by Liora Kaplan (*1974, Herzliya; lives and works in Tel Aviv-Yafo). The sculptural work of Liora Kaplan explores the relationship between contemporary pop culture, shamanism, and primitivism, while simultaneously bringing forth new understanding to the notion of appropriation, being that the objects presented in her work have a strong cultural significance and are charged with the authorship of their craftsmanship. Through a collection of objects belonging to different cultures and traditions and created in disparate places, the artist ‘mines’ what is symbolic. In other words, her work materializes the possibility of imbuing symbols with personal meaning and underlines the role of time and space as key ... More

Giorgio Griffa, Gioiadolore, 2021. Acrylic on canvas, 81.5 x 54.72” / 207 x 139cm. Photo: Jason Wyche © Giorgio Griffa. Courtesy the artist and Casey Kaplan, New York.

NEW YORK, NY.- Casey Kaplan is presenting Giorgio Griffa: The 2000s, a selection of seven paintings created between 2000 and 2021, in Gallery II. This exhibition marks the fifth iteration in a series of exhibitions focusing on the artist’s practice by decade. Since 1968, Giorgio Griffa’s (b. 1936, Turin, Italy) work has been characterized by both repetitive and spontaneous sequences of marks and gestures. Brightly colored lines snake across raw, unstretched canvas; some ripple in waves, or tumble down like leaves, while others march like soldiers in regimented procession, or zig zag and careen like pinballs. Laid out like sheets on the floor, Griffa works freely across unprimed, unstretched raw canvas (made of linen, jute, hemp, or cotton), referring to them as “fragments of space” that serve as ground for his water- ...

New book tells the fascinating life story of collector Manuela Alexejew
NEW YORK, NY.- This book tells the fascinating life story of Manuela Alexejew through her extensive collection of paintings, sculpture and antiques, among which she lives with her husband Carlos Brandl in a grand loft in Berlin. Featuring works by artists as varied as Otto Dix, Otto Piene, George Condo, Allen Jones, Yayoi Kusama and Alicja Kwade (to name but a few), it is one of Germany’s most distinguished private collections of modern and contemporary art. Manuela Alexejew’s life reads like fiction: with enviable looks she first worked as a flight attendant for Pan Am during the glamorous height of the airline industry, collecting eclectic experiences across the globe—from partying with Sophia Loren at the legendary Studio 54, to relaxed days at Oscar de la Renta’s home in Santo Domingo. Alexejew then returned to her roots: art. Having studied at Berlin’s University of Fine Arts, ... More

The exhibition features more than 200 artworks from the collections of the Latvian National Museum of Art, Museum of the History of Riga and Navigation, and 19th century publications from the University of Latvia Academic Library.

Sworders to offer photos from the Profumo Affair, the mother of all political scandals
STANSTED MOUNTFITCHET.- Political scandals come and go and today we are seldom surprised when our elected representatives fall below the standards expected of them. However, back in 1963 when it emerged that John Profumo had lied to the House of Commons regarding an extramarital affair with the 19-year-old model Christine Keeler, the nation’s faith in the ruling classes was shaken to its core. The credibility of the Macmillan government was severely damaged and the fallout contributed to the Conservative government's defeat the following year. The relationship between politicians and the public was never quite the same again. Almost 60 years later and dramatisations of the Profumo Affair continue to appear on stage and screen. Interest in Keeler and the showgirl Mandy Rice-Davies has seldom subsided. Sworders’ Out ... More

Light Holding by Jenna Gribbon opens at MASSIMODECARLO London
LONDON.- MASSIMODECARLO is presenting Light Holding, Jenna Gribbon’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. The paintings question the feelings and implications of seeing and being seen through their exploration of performative, constructed and real intimacy. Occupying the artist’s point of view in the scenes, we are encouraged not only to look at the subject but invited to view Gribbon’s own experience of looking at them. Forced into this position, we become aware of our place in the triumvirate relationship between artist, subject and viewer. Although all the works in Light Holding explore the close relationships between Gribbon and her partner Mackenzie Scott and her son, the exhibition can be divided into three series, dictated by scale, style, and the role played by the subject, artist and viewer. Paint, which Gribbon handles deftly and succinctly, ... More

James Maraniss, librettist of long-silent opera, dies at 76
NEW YORK, NY.- James Maraniss, a Spanish scholar who wrote the libretto for an opera that was finished in 1978, won a Pulitzer Prize in 2000 but was not fully staged for another decade, died Jan. 9 at his home in Chesterfield, Massachusetts. He was 76. The cause was a heart attack, his brother, David, said. Maraniss, a professor of Spanish and European studies at Amherst College, had never written a libretto when composer Lewis Spratlan, a faculty colleague, approached him in 1975 to collaborate on an opera based on Pedro Calderon de la Barca’s early 17th-century drama “La Vida es sueño” (“Life Is a Dream”). The piece had been commissioned by the New Haven Opera Theater in Connecticut. Excited at how Calderon’s vivid writing quickly conjured musical images in his mind, Spratlan told Maraniss the news about the commission — not ... More

Donna Barba Higuera wins Newbery Medal for 'The Last Cuentista'
NEW YORK, NY.- “The Last Cuentista,” Donna Barba Higuera’s dystopian yet hopeful middle-grade novel, received this year’s John Newbery Medal on Monday, winning one of the most prestigious prizes in children’s literature. In the book, published by Levine Querido, 12-year-old Petra Peña and her family are among those chosen to escape Earth before Halley’s comet collides with the planet. Put to sleep for nearly 400 years, they wake up with everyone’s memories erased but Petra’s. In The New York Times Book Review, Tae Keller, who won the Newbery last year for “When You Trap a Tiger,” said “The Last Cuentista” “certainly veers into the dark end of middle-grade fiction, with brainwashing, ‘purging’ (murder, although always off-page) and, yes, the destruction of our entire planet. But it doesn’t dwell in the darkness, preferring to give its readers ... More
