- When Jayne Wrightsman, a prominent New York socialite who appeared on ARTnews ’s Top 200 Collectors list each year between 1990 and 1998, died this past April at age 99, the question for many was what would happen with her significant collection. Now, several hundred works from her holdings are headed to one of the world’s top art institutions. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has announced that it has received a massive bequest of artworks from Wrightsman, a longtime trustee at the museum. The bequest includes more than 375 paintings, sculptures, works on paper, decorative ...

- History remembers her as Picasso’s muse but Maar was an unflinching artist who infiltrated the surrealists’ boys club – and helped paint Guernica W hen Dora Maar died on 16 July 1997 at the age of 89, few people seemed to notice. It took the French newspaper Le Monde – in her home country – 10 days to publish anything. And when journalists did cotton on, they didn’t seem to think Maar was the story. The New York Times called her “a muse of Picasso” and the “principal model for many of his so-called weeping women portraits in the late 30s and early 40s”. The Independent, ...


- An anonymous buyer purchased the piece, painted on the walls of a Manhattan youth center. It is unclear where the work will end up. It took Keith Haring one evening in the early 1980s — and zero planning — to paint an 85-foot mural up the walls of a Catholic youth center stairwell on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Several decades and a painstaking extraction process later, the mural has been sold at Bonhams for $3.9 million. An anonymous buyer purchased the piece Wednesday by phone, Bonhams said. The mural, though cut into individual segments around the 13 Haring figures — his radiant ...

- PARIS — An old painting found in the kitchen of an elderly French woman, who considered it an icon of little importance, has made her a multimillionaire. The work, a masterpiece attributed to the 13th-century Italian painter Cimabue that was discovered earlier this year , sold for $26.6 million (24 million euros) Sunday. Dominique Le Coent of Acteon Auction House, who sold the masterpiece to an anonymous buyer near Chantilly, north of Paris, said the sale represented a "world record for a primitive, or a pre-1500 work." "It's a painting that was unique, splendid and monumental. Cimabue was ...

- A leading Italian art historian attributed it to Raphael and associates before the sale A painting of the Madonna and child with the attribution “close to Raphael” sold for a hammer price of €1.27m at Vienna’s Dorotheum, more than three times the high estimate, after a leading Italian art historian suggested it is the work of the artist in collaboration with associates. The painting, billed as a discovery, was once in the collection of Adèle d’Affry, a 19th-century Swiss noblewoman and artist who married Carlo Colonna, the duke of Castiglione. It is not known whether the painting ...


- PARIS — Much about Leonardo Da Vinci remains an enigma: the smile of the "Mona Lisa"; why the world's most famous painter left so many works unfinished; and more recently, who bought the contentious "Salvator Mundi." A new exhibit at the Louvre, however, opening Thursday and marking the 500th anniversary of the Italian master's death, tries to sketch out as complete a picture of the artist and thinker as possible. Drawing from the Louvre's permanent collection and institutions around the world, the exhibit brings together some 160 works. They include Da Vinci masterpieces, dozens of studies ...

- Paul Gauguin’s portraits painted in Tahiti ‘expanded the parameters of portraiture’, but they were exoticised for a Western market. Now, modern artists are subverting this legacy. The backdrop to the portraits is Tahiti. The sitters are feminine, sensual, proffering ripe fruits and wearing flower garlands. The colours are bright: tropical yellows, hot pinks, mango orange and cobalt blue. This description applies to some of the paintings in a new exhibition,  . It is, astonishingly, the first major show to focus on Paul Gauguin’s portraiture – strikingly odd as it often is, filled ...

- The Museum of Modern Art. Iwan Baan, Courtesy of MoMA. The New MoMA Is More of a Good Thing Subscribe The Museum of Modern Art was born almost a century ago, though it wasn’t until the 1930s that the place had a building to call its own. Edward Durrell Stone and Phillip L. Goodwin’s handsome edifice was a rebuke to West 53rd Street’s staid old townhouses, a work of modern art unto itself. Phillip Johnson added to the building in the 1960s; Caesar Pelli in the 1980s. Yoshio Taniguchi’s 2004 expansion honored all that came before, an architecture of truce. A new renovation—by Diller ...
