- Tribute that adds abandoned shopping trollies to the impressionist image of water lilies to be sold at Sotheby’s auction Street artist Banksy’s version of Claude Monet’s impressionist masterpiece will go on sale at Sotheby’s London gallery for an estimated £3-5m. The painting, called Show me the Monet, was created in 2005. It is framed around Monet’s famous water lilies picture but is filled with jarring images of upside-down shopping trolleys and a traffic cone bobbing in the water. Sotheby’s will sell the oil-on-canvas work for between £3m and £5m (US$3.9 million to US$6.5m) ...


- Nearly 40 gallerists support the cancellation, despite some seeing it as a "missed opportunity" for the French scene. After a summer of deliberating, the Paris contemporary art fair FIAC announced on Monday that it would not be holding its 2020 edition in the Grand Palais. The decision was announced just five weeks shy of the fair’s originally scheduled dates in October, and the response in the French press has been exceedingly harsh. Télérama reports that gallerists are “furious" over the decision after being kept in the dark for so long, and Le Figaro also cites dealers’ “rage,” ...


- New analysis confirms the famed Dutch painter’s studio—and perhaps even the artist himself—created "Head of a Bearded Man" Since the 1980s, a postcard-sized painting has sat out of sight in the storeroom of the University of Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum . Titled Head of a Bearded Man, the portrait was donated to the museum in 1951 and displayed as an original work by revered Dutch master Rembrandt . But after a group of investigators deemed the painting inauthentic in 1981, curators decided to move it into storage. "[N]o one wanted to talk about [it] because it was this fake Rembrandt," ...


- Arts and Entertainment Doubting Gauguin An amateur detective takes on the National Gallery, and the art world Fabrice Fourmanoir, an art dealer, poses for a portrait in Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico, on June 15. (César Rodríguez for The Washington Post) By July 30, 2020 It’s the nude that bothers Fabrice Fourmanoir. The way she’s painted is “unsightly” and “vulgar,” quite unlike the Polynesian women of his mind’s eye. Nor does he like the way she’s artificially inserted on the canvas, part of what he calls an “uninventive assemblage” with no coherent symbolism. Yet there she ...


- Sotheby’s will auction 1931 charcoal drawing that shines light on artist’s affair with Marie-Thérèse Walter A tender and largely unseen portrait by Picasso of his lover and muse Marie-Thérèse Walter, which the artist personally kept until his death, is to appear at auction for the first time. The 1931 charcoal drawing shines light on one of the great love affairs of the 20th century and was made by Picasso when his affair with Walter was still a closely guarded secret. It is “an absolute gem, it is so exquisitely beautiful,” said Helena Newman, worldwide head of Sotheby’s ...


- On Tuesday, the Drouot auction house in Paris sold a letter dually written by the artists Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin to the painter Émile Bernard for a head-turning sum of $237,000. The document, bought by the Vincent van Gogh Foundation, is the only known letter to have been written by both van Gogh and Gauguin. It contains a treasure trove of insight into the exploits of the two blossoming masters, including van Gogh’s account of the pair’s visits to brothels, both for recreational and work-related reasons. "We’ve made some excursions in the brothels, and it’s likely that ...
