- The artist befriended the child of his neighbours, and had given two paintings for the boy’s nursery Two of Paul Gauguin’s Tahitian paintings were buried in the grave of a young boy in 1892. Although this little-known fact is mentioned briefly in the National Gallery’s exhibition Gauguin Portraits , which opened in London last month, we can report the precise source of this astonishing story. In 1891, a few days after his arrival in Tahiti, Gauguin found lodgings in the capital, Papeete. His neighbours, with whom he shared a veranda, were Jean-Jacques Suhas, a French naval pharmacist, ...


- Leonardo fever is taking hold this season. Last month, the Louvre opened its hotly anticipated  Leonardo da Vinci retrospective , and timed tickets are already selling out fast.

- 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.

"It's a painting that was unique, splendid and monumental. Cimabue was ...

- 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 ...

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 ...


- 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 ...
