- New research suggests that the painting’s artist, Edvard Munch, wrote the secret message around 1895 Edvard Munch’s The Scream attracted intense criticism when it was first exhibited in Norway in 1895. Some viewers interpreted the open-mouthed central figure, who stands on a bridge in a sea of swirling color, as an embodiment of the artist’s own fragile mental health . Historians have long speculated that this controversy provoked a viewer to pencil a curious piece of graffiti on the top left corner of the canvas. The Norwegian message translates to "Could only have been painted by a ...

Indeed, it takes a very special sort of friendship between artists to persist through the highs and lows of their unique lifestyles and to overcome professional jealousy, easily bruised ...

- If the French capital is "well worth a mass", as King Henri IV supposedly once said, so are its myriad churches stacked with overlooked treasures – all the more so in the bleak age of Covid. Had le bon roi Henri lived in present times, he may well have decided Paris was worth a miss. With the city’s cherished museums, theatres, cinemas and concert halls all desperately shut , and a “not-even-in-wartime” 6pm curfew in place, it’s currently all work and no play for most Parisians, holed up in cramped and ludicrously expensive dwellings. Mercifully, the capital’s nearly 200 churches ...

- Cleveland Museum of Art faced a curatorial nightmare last year when the coronavirus pandemic turned its precisely calibrated exhibition calendar from a Swiss watch into Swiss cheese. Big shows on topics including 7th-century sculpture from Cambodia, and Pablo Picasso’s works on paper got postponed, punching holes in a timetable complicated further by temporary closures of the museum from March to June, and then again from November to this January .
