- Picture: Barber Institute Posted by Adam Busiakiewicz: ArtDaily.com has reported on news that the Barber Institute of Fine Arts in Birmingham has acquired a painting by the French artist Marguerite Gérard (1761 – 1837). Gérard has been more widely known as the sister-in-law of Fragonard, yet, her own work and biography has received much more attention from scholars in recent times. The picture, known as The Reader , was acquired from Galerie Perrin who exhibited the work at TEFAF in Maastricht. The institute's director Nicola Kalinsky is quoted as saying: This little painting is a huge ...


- Art collector David Kowitz's company has yet to pay for its portion of an alleged forgery. A years-long legal battle between Sotheby’s and an investment company over the sale of an allegedly forged old master painting may finally have come to an end. On Monday, an appeals court in London upheld a 2019 decision ordering Fairlight Art Ventures, an investment company owned by US hedge-fund manager and art collector David Kowitz, to pay Sotheby’s $5.3 million for an allegedly fake Frans Hals painting sold through the auction house nearly a decade ago. “[The law has] to fall on someone,” ...


- At 100, the Phillips Collection doesn’t seem to have aged The feeling of intimacy and aesthetic intensification you get from a visit to the Phillips Collection, which turns 100 next year, is unlike any other art-going experience in the District. Just thinking of it is somehow a tonic. And that may not be by accident. Duncan Phillips transformed his family home into the museum after his father, a Pittsburgh window glass millionaire, died suddenly in 1917 and his older brother succumbed to the influenza epidemic the following year. Through the fog of his grief, Phillips, a published art ...

- The Italian art historian claims the drawing is a study for Leonardo's actual, lost "Salvator Mundi." An Italian scholar claims to have discovered a new drawing of Jesus Christ by Leonardo da Vinci that confirms doubts that the Renaissance master painted Salvator Mundi , the world’s most expensive work of art . A private collector in Lecco showed the red chalk drawing of Jesus Christ to Annalisa Di Maria, a Leonardo scholar associated with the  UNESCO Center in Florence , and she immediately saw in it the hand of Leonardo. "[This] is the true face of  Salavator Mundi ," Di Maria told  La ...


- In July 2018, London’s National Gallery acquired a self-portrait by the Baroque artist Artemisia Gentileschi, featuring the painter in the guise of Saint Catherine of Alexandria. Almost immediately, it drew an unprecedented level of media attention. First of all, there was its £3.6 million price tag. Then, there was the fact it was painted by one of the greatest artists of the 17th century who just so happens to be a woman, marking only the twentieth painting by a female artist within the gallery’s collection of over 2,300 works. Third, and perhaps most intriguingly, was its concurrence ...

- In a moving letter, Van Gogh complains about quarantine after his forced removal from the Yellow House New exhibition at Amsterdam's Van Gogh Museum is a unique opportunity to see Vincent’s correspondence, normally locked away in a vault When Van Gogh was sent to hospital again in March 1889, a few weeks after mutilating his ear, he ran out of writing paper. The solution was to use the envelope from a letter he had just received, addressed to him in Arles by his brother Theo. Having reached the bottom of the envelope Vincent squeezed in his last words, ending with an enigmatic query: ...

- The venerable Brooklyn Museum for decades struggled with a structural deficit, as well as a relatively small endowment and staff to take care of its 150,000-object art collection. Then came the global pandemic, forcing the 197-year-old institution to shut its doors for months along with the rest of the country’s museums. Furloughs followed as revenue plunged.

Ben Enwonwu has long been a household name in Nigeria and in African art circles.
