Kandinsky is respected throughout the art world and credited with painting the first purely abstract works. However a large part of his success is that Kandinsky had a very special gift called synaesthesia cognate, which gave him the ability to hear colors and see sounds. He had a fascinating journey, being born in Moscow and […]

Hundertwasser, A True Artistic Spirit | December Birthday

Hundertwasser, A True Artistic Spirit

Hundertwasser, A True Artistic Spirit Friedensreich Hundertwasser would have been 86 years old today, had he still been alive to celebrate his birthday, but his art continually celebrates him everyday.

The FIFA Controversy Surrounding a Picasso

The long embattled Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) is taking another hit to their reputation as the revelations of a British report into the FIFA bidding process for the 2018 soccer World Cup was exposed in the Sunday Times. Painting FIFA in a rather unflattering light, the report alleges that Michel Platini, the executive […]

The New Exhibition @Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz in San Francisco, California

Ai Weiwei, the Chinese artist and activist, is a persecuted man constantly on the edge of imprisonment which makes his most recent installment called @Large: Ai Weiwei on Alcatraz very intriguing.

Picasso’s Beloved Ceramics Studio in Danger

Madoura Pottery in the town of Vallauris in Southern France is just as Picasso left it 60 years ago, including the furniture, tables tools, and brushes. But the facility itself is threatened with collapse. According to the Journal du Dimanche, this humble Mediterranean pottery studio has “remained in its juice since the passage of Picasso” […]

Pablo Picasso's Ceramic Owls

Pablo Picasso’s Ceramic Owls

It is no secret that Picasso had a fondness for owls. They make appearances in every medium that the artist touched. Just as the artist surrounded himself with his most infamous inspiration, women, he did so with his feathered friends, even adopting a small injured owl that he kept in his studio. A favorite theme […]

De Chirico Authentication Board

The De Chirico Authentication Board, Starting to Crack?

Much along the lines of the Andy Warhol Foundation, which used to authenticate works by Warhol until legal troubles became an issue, the Giorgio and Isa de Chirico Foundation which currently authenticates works by De Chirico is finding itself in the same hot water although under different, very interesting circumstances. As is discussed in the […]

Craft’s Acceptance and Celebration in the Fine Arts

The introduction of craft into the world of Fine Art with a capital A is hardly a brand new concept. For centuries, the World’s Fairs have showcased visual culture from regions that didn’t fit into the standards of Western ideals, albeit the earlier results may have been not the most culturally sensitive. As the Modern […]

Albrecht Dürer

Albrecht Dürer Superstar

As the pioneer of the Northern European Renaissance, Albrecht Dürer is one of art’s greatest “superstars.” From March 24, 2013 to June 9, 2013, The National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. is honoring this talented Old Master with an exhibition entitled “Albrecht Dürer: Master Drawings, Watercolors, and Prints from the Albertina.” Highlighting Dürer’s works […]

Le Reve

The Value of Pablo Picasso’s “Le Reve”

Le Reve, 1932 by Pablo Picasso has had quite the adventure since its creation. Created in 1932 by Picasso, this work was originally part of the collection of Victor and Sally Ganz who purchased the work in 1941 for $7,000. Put up for auction by the family in 1997, this work sold for $48 million […]

The Beauty in the Fiery Beast: Pablo Picasso’s Wonderful Obsession with Pottery What makes owning a Picasso ceramic so enticing?

Valentine’s Day: the Pleasure of Viewing Love in Art

With Valentine’s Day this week, the concept of love in art work is more prevalent than any other time of year. Ken Johnson, art critic for New York Times, provided an editorial musing about the themes of love he found in art around New York City including Metropolitan Museum of Art , and the Whitney Museum. From “Sleeping Eros” sculpture […]

Art as Luxury Items: The Demise of ‘L’art pour l’art?’

In this day and age, art is more of a luxury item than ever.  In a recent article in The Art Newspaper entitled ‘Can their love last forever?’ writer Charlotte Burns comments on the inextricable link between the art world and luxury brands.  Throughout the ages, art has accompanied the wealthy and the powerful.  From […]

Close offered these students a private tour of his show, providing insight into his […]

Tapestry

The Magnificent Tapestry: A Neglected Art Form

Tapestries were once one of the most highly prized mediums, with Raphael being paid five times more for the tapestries he designed to adorn the walls of the Sistine Chapel than Michelangelo received for his contribution to the ceiling. Masterful artists wove silk, wool, gold, and silver threads glorifying military triumphs, tales, and worldly domains. […]

Optical Art

The Woman Who Launched an Optical Art

Buried just last week at the Montparnasse Cemetary, Paris, gallerist Denise René will be remembered as the woman who launched the careers of such artists as Victor Vasarely and Piet Mondrian. The Pope of Abstraction never wavered from her initial investment in optical and abstract art. “Beauty is a battle,” states the short text on […]

The Many Faces of Queen Elizabeth II

In honor of London, the host of the 2012 Olympic Games, we would like to take a moment to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II and her relevance to the history of art.  Perhaps one of the most famous and widespread artistic subjects of all time, Queen Elizabeth II’s likeness has been captured by a multitude of […]

Women in the Art World: Personal vs. Professional Fulfillment

Anne-Marie Slaughter’s recent article in The Atlantic, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All” has kicked off a debate regarding her decree that present societal conditions make having both a satisfying work life and raising a family impossible and that the feminist dream to “have it all” is simply not possible. ARTINFO, in response to […]

Old Master Madness

Master Paintings Week is entering its twelfth season in London from June 29 to July 6 and the demand for Old Masters couldn’t be higher. Sure the Old Master market isn’t as flashy as the Modern Art market, but it produces a high percentage in the global art market, one whose value has doubled in […]

Cultural Olympiad to accompany the London Olympics

For those of you who aren’t into sports so much, there will still be plenty to do this summer in London outside of the Olympics. Ruth Mackenzie, formerly head of the Scottish Opera and the Manchester International Festival, has a new project on her hands. Her Cultural Olympiad, running June 21st through September 9th, will […]

“Trophy Hunters”

Spring Auctions Powered by “Trophy Hunters”

The auction season thus far has been truly exceptional. Record breaking sales and artist records are being made all over the place at Christie’s and Sotheby’s due to the rarity of the works being offered and those buyers who covet them. “Super-trophies” are what these rare works with strong provenance are known as, and the […]

Michael Hammer

Where in the world is Michael Hammer?

PIERRE LAGRANGE WANTS TO KNOW Pierre Lagrange is upset and no one can blame him. Untitled 1950, a painting ostensibly created by Jackson Pollock is proving impossible to sell, much less return or authenticate. It would help if Knoedler & Co. Gallery, where he bought the work in 2007 for $17 million, were still open […]

As an adored muse of the […]

Sotheby’s

Trouble for Sotheby’s?

The CtW Investment Group, an adviser to many union-sponsored pension funds (including the still-locked-out Sotheby’s art handlers) sent out a public notice to shareholders through the Securities and Exchange Commission, accusing the Sotheby’s board of favoritism and an unchanged internal structure since going public. The filing notes that four of the last six board members elected were nominated by […]

Hong Kong-Boat

The Rise of Hong Kong in the International Art Scene

Hong Kong is a bustling city of skyscrapers and commercial excess. It has long been known as a center of trade and finance, not as a Chinese cultural destination like Beijing or Singapore. However, as many articles explain these days, that image is quickly changing as an influx of international art ventures is helping Chinese […]

Dürer Self-portrait

Dürer lovers and soccer fans…who knew?

When Albrecht Dürer painted Self-portrait (1500), he probably never envisioned a stadium full of soccer fans joining a public – and heated – debate over its display. Then again, maybe the 28-year-old artist didn’t know he would become an icon for his state of Franconia (now part of Bavaria). “Dürer back to his city!” read […]

3-D Printing: The Way of the Future?

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3-D printing or rapid prototyping, is a technique that operates by “building an object layer by individual layer in a single process. Some 3-D printers pipe melted plastic through a nozzle in a process called fused deposition modeling (FDM); higher-tech methods, like stereolithography (SLA) run lasers through a vat of […]

Score one for the Holocaust-era restitution team

The human cost of the Holocaust is recorded in our collective conscious and in the history books, but the material cost may not be quite so fixed or readily apparent. A reminder of this is a high profile restitution case involving a painting by Brescian master Girolamo Romanino (ca. 1484/8 –ca. 1560) and the grandchildren […]

Eye on the market

STOP! News Time: Art Market

B-levels are the new A-levels, if not in the realm of United Kingdom academic tests, than at least in the art world. That’s to say, gone are the days when February auctions of Impressionist, modern and contemporary art evoke nothing more than a wrinkled nose of interest.

Influence of Picasso

Tate Britain: New Exhibition Offers a Fresh Perspective on the Influence of Picasso

Pablo Picasso is known as the greatest artist of the 20th century. His staggering output of more than 20,000 paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics, sculptures, and photographs, gave him an exposure unprecedented for a living artist. Combine that with the fact that he created cubism (with Georges Braque), invented collage, and painted an art masterpiece (“Guernica”), […]

Resilience of the Art Market

The Resilience of the Art Market

Artprice recorded that last year, 2011, was the best ever for the sales of art at auction. With 10.7 billion dollars in earnings for 2011, artists such as Picasso, Degas, Zhang, and Warhol helped make 2011 a stand our year for art. When compared to 2010’s total of 9.5 billion dollars, it is easy to […]

The Arab Spring: politicizing art in the streets

Everyone knows art is political. LA-based artist Shepard Fairey’s red, white and blue portrait of Obama, inscribed with the word ‘HOPE’, quickly became the visual battle call of the 2008 campaign. Equally memorable is the 2010 controversy over “A Fire in my Belly,” a silent film by activist and artist David Wojnarowicz; the Secretary of […]

The Value of Henry Moore

  Henry Moore is one of the most iconographic artists of the 20th century. His works in sculpture, bronze, Rosenthal Porcelain, and on paper are well known for the fluidity of line work that is abstract and detailed. His works effortlessly draw out the viewer’s feelings of compassion, interest, and wonder and thus it is […]

Authencity: The dangers of giving (or not) an opinion

In a thriving art market where works have been selling at high prices at auction (note the $199.8 total for a Modern and Contemporary Sale held last month at Sotheby’s), where blockbuster shows witness ticket hawking and long lines (the London National Gallery’s “Leonardo Da Vinci: Painter at the Court of Milan” comes to mind), […]

The Andy Warhol Foundation: What Will Happen to Warhol?

The Andy Warhol Foundation has developed a rather convoluted reputation in their quest to catalog and certify the vast collection of over 100,000 (across all media) works that Warhol created.

Art Market Update

Sotheby’s and Christie’s Impressionist and Modern sales this past week provided for an interesting revitalization of the Impressionist and Modern art market. Christie’s tallied $149,773,500, while Sotheby’s tallied $199,804,500 in sales which are remarkable when compared to previous Impressionist and Modern sales. Both sales offered a variety of different works, but as an Artinfo article […]

Westminster

The Ownerless Moore in Westminster

Though it could be worth up to £5 million, Henry Moore’s Knife Edge Two Piece isn’t being claimed by anyone. The three-ton sculpture, which was donated by the artist to his nation in 1967 and which he recorded as belonging to the City of London, actually resides in the City of Westminster; confusingly, it doesn’t […]

Investing in Art in a Smoke-and-Mirrors Financial Market

The stock market is in marked decline and bonds are showing pitifully low returns. Interest rates are at a minimum, as low as .5% in some countries.
