- Former Bridgestone Museum of Art will have new focus on creativity through the ages after a three-year renovation The former Bridgestone Museum of Art, one of Asia’s finest collections of French Impressionism, is reopening with a new name on 18 January following a three-year renovation. Artizon Museum, which occupies the first six floors of a 23-storey tower in the Kyobashi district of Tokyo, is home to the 2,800-strong collection of the Ishibashi Foundation, established in 1956 by the industrialist Shojiro Ishibashi. The refurbishment has created a more welcoming entrance, upgraded the ...


- New York-based Wildenstein-Plattner Institute will digitise fabled Wildenstein archive of sale catalogues, letters and experts’ notes The tension between the art world’s traditional secretiveness and today’s desire to share data spilled out in a question at the inaugural meeting of the International Catalogue Raisonné Association at Christie’s London in November. “If you let people know which works by artists are ‘location unknown’, fakers may supply the missing work,” said one attendee. Elizabeth Gorayeb, the executive director of the New York-based Wildenstein-Plattner ...


- 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.

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 and ...


- 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.
