- A champion of fellow Black and women artists, the New York-born painter and sculptor made a second reputation as writer and illustrator of admired children's stories Faith Ringgold, one of the leading artists of her generation— known for the power of her engagement with the Civil Rights struggle in the US, and with feminism, and for her beguilingly illustrated and narrated children's books—has died at home in New Jersey, aged 93. Ringgold was known as much for the visceral quality ...


- Looking back at the history of the pioneering dealership in post-war art, plus a thought-provoking new installation in Madison Square Park and Caravaggio's The Martyrdom of Saint Ursula This week: after nearly 80 years in business, Marlborough Gallery, one of the most historic commercial galleries in London, New York and beyond, has announced that it is closing. Host Ben Luke talks to Anny Shaw, a contributing editor at The Art Newspaper , about what happened and what, if anything, it tells us ...


- As the UK crawls out of a rather dispiriting winter, galleries up and down the country are putting on a number of excellent exhibitions this spring.  Unravel: The Power and Politics of Textiles in Art, Barbican (London) Textiles are having a bit of a revival, said Francesca Stocco, a researcher at Nottingham Trent University, on The Conversation , and one that is exploring their subtle potential for "subversion" and "political dissent".  This exhibition certainly proves that point. ...

- On April 15, 1874 – 150 years ago – the first Impressionist exhibition opened on Rue du Capucines in Paris, featuring works by 30 artists, including Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Hosted by the "Anonymous Society of Painters, Sculptors, and Engravers, etc.," it was founded in response to the Paris Salon, the annual, government-sponsored exhibition that would frequently reject the works of the rising artists. The show, ...

- The angle of a doorframe, an open window, a table laid with fruit and teacup, a dog perched on a checkered tablecloth—all these moments of everyday life, heightened with color and shadow, are Bonnard's drama. He said that he doesn't paint in front of the subject but sketches the scene, departs, dreams the image and then paints. His hand managed to capture this dreaming on canvas. There's a liquid viscosity to his images as if at any moment they will slide out of view and vanish, like in a ...

- The donors, Tod and Cindy Johnson, met and got married during their time at CMU; they will have a gallery named in their honour Just as it prepares to kick off construction of its expanded and renamed Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) Pittsburgh on 12 April, Carnegie Mellon University has received a $10m gift to support the institute and the university's public art programme. The donors, Tod and Cindy Johnson, are both alumni of the university—in fact they met and got married while they ...


- One structured and austere, the other sensual and joyous — Paul Cezanne and Auguste Renoir were two founding fathers of Impressionism, but a new Milan exhibition explores their sharply different styles. Marking 150 years since the founding of the art movement, 52 masterpieces by the two Frenchmen are on loan from Paris for an unprecedented show at the Palazzo Reale — alongside two by Picasso, whom they inspired. The paintings date from the 1870s to the early 20th century. Renoir and ...


- Like other shows that have sought to shed new light on artists known to a wide public, such as the Met's " Van Gogh's Cypresses ," "Matisse and the Sea" at the Saint Louis Art Museum illuminates the permanence of the ocean in Matisse's works and how they evolved . Through more than seventy paintings, ceramics and sculptures plus his famous paper cut-outs, Henri Matisse is revealed as not only a visionary but also a disciple and a collector. The exhibition, which considers how Matisse's stays ...

- MADRID and PARIS — Last year marked 50 years since Picasso's death, and more than 50 major exhibitions around the world have observed the occasion. But the Spaniard's life was long, and it's worth remembering that it's 116 years since he painted "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon," which (along with "Guernica" ) is usually cited as his masterpiece. That might make the revelations in a new exhibition in Madrid seem like ancient history. But "Picasso 1906: The Turning Point," at the Reina Sofia ...


- Institution in Washington, D.C. is 'both a museum and a megaphone' Museums seldom get the opportunity to reintroduce themselves, show how they've grown or illustrate fresh perspectives. The National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) in Washington, D.C., is doing just that since its recent reopening after a two-year closure for renovation and expansion.  "This major renovation has allowed us to reimagine all of our spaces," said director Susan Fisher Sterling, 68. "We've added a Learning ...


- A new show at the Musée d'Orsay brings together works made during his final months. Few artists across history have captured minds and imaginations as fully as Dutch Post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh , who over the course of his comparatively short career—around a decade—produced over 900 paintings, some of which are the most famous in Western art history, from Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers (1888) to The Starry Night (1889). Along with his prodigious output, Van Gogh ...


- See works on paper from the likes of Degas, Monet and Cézanne. It is little wonder that an art movement like Impressionism, popular for capturing the elusive immediacy of everyday life, would be drawn to drawing. Works on paper, historically relegated to the status of a preparatory sketch, soon became masterpieces in their own right. Emancipated from the formal rigor and slick stylisations of Rococo and Neoclassicist painting, the Impressionists were able to reveal something that felt ...


- For the residency's twelfth year, the Rubell Museum leans into textile art. Miami mega-patrons Don and Mera Rubell like to be thought of as tastemakers in the contemporary art world. Since they began an artist-in-residence program at their private institution, the Rubell Museum, in 2011, their emerging artist resident has been given the prime slot of the December show—timed to coincide with Art Basel Miami Beach. Among the art world, the spotlight has come to be known as a fast-track to ...


- Could there be an earlier version of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa painting? Some experts are alleging that a piece depicting a younger version of the sitter could be the original. The Mona Lisa (1503–19) is a Renaissance painting of the Florentine woman Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Florentine silk merchant Francesco del Giocondo, by Leonardo da Vinci. The Isleworth Mona Lisa , as it has been dubbed (because it was previously owned by an art dealer in the London suburb), shows Lisa in the ...

- It may have been near the inn where he stayed—not in a more distant wheatfield A new theory suggests that Van Gogh may have shot himself in the fields just above the inn where he was lodging, not further away. The traditional view is that the artist pulled the trigger in a wheatfield behind the Château de Léry, which is nearly a kilometre away. After the shot missed his heart, but left him severely wounded, he staggered back to his room in great pain. This was in the evening ...
