- The museum where it was kept had been shuttered due to COVID-19. An important copy of Leonardo da Vinci ’s famous “Salvator Mundi” painting is back in the hands of an Italian museum after being stolen at some point in the last year. No one knew it was missing.

- Germany became a unified state 150 years ago this week – and no other country has produced such original, provocative and powerful art since, from Richter to Klee, from Dix to Höch S ituated on the edge of the Alps, Neuschwanstein Castle may not look like the birthplace of modern art. Best seen from a perilously crowded footbridge across a vertiginous gorge, it floats in misty rains, a cloudy dream of white spires and battlements. Yet this 19th-century colossus is an architectural homage to one man: a composer who inspired the avant garde to make the leap to modernism. Richard Wagner ’s ...


- In the alluring art-world documentary " My Rembrandt ," someone describes the experience of being in sudden, direct proximity to a Rembrandt portrait of a standing figure. He says that it was spooky, like seeing a live human loom right up in front of him. Rembrandt, who painted images of astonishing dark tactile severity ("He creates shadows by not painting them," says one observer), was the mesmeric psychologist of the Old Masters. When you look at one of his paintings, the face it shows is so specific, so lived-in, so there that we seem to be peering directly into the soul of the person it ...

- Japanese prints helped inspire the artist's famous series. Paul Cézanne’s muse was not a person but a mountain. Montagne Sainte-Victoire, a mountain overlooking Aix-en-Provence in southern France, fascinated the visionary artist for decades, resulting in over 30 oil paintings and watercolors made over the course of his life. The mountain, whose name means “Mountain of Holy Victory,” was by no means astoundingly large: it measures a modest 3,317 feet. But it is steeped in local and personal lore. For Cézanne, who lived most of his life in Aix, and who established a studio with a view ...


- The museum says it had 5.5 million unique website visitors last year, and a 23 percent increase in the number of its social-media followers. Amsterdam’s famed Rijksmuseum , which was closed for much of last year, had its lowest attendance in decades in 2020, with visitors dropping by more than 2 million to just 675,000. That’s the lowest total for the museum since 1964, when it had 686,553 guests. But one bright spot for the Rijksmuseum was its robust online presence, including a total website revamp Where foot traffic was lacking, the web was a different story. According to the museum, ...


- Rodin, Bacon and Eileen Agar will be big, but Abramovic’s art attack could eclipse them all. Plus Frank Gehry unleashes a tornado and Helen Levitt shows how street photography should be done by , , and Art Francis Bacon: Man and Beast Screaming apes, isolated in cages – and that’s just the people. Bacon was the most atheist of artists and his vision of humans and other animals is relentlessly Darwinian, so don’t look for cuteness or sentiment in his ruthless dissections of our nature. This is a sideways look at a modern master. JJ • Royal Academy, London, 30 January-18 April. Jean ...


- In this intimate scene from Genesis, the artist depicts the moment that Abraham’s wife Sarah learns she will bear a son When Rembrandt van Rijn ’s Abraham and the Angels last appeared at auction, in 1848, it sold for £64 (around £7,670 , or $10,500 USD, today).
