- A scientist has spent 14 years analyzing photographs of one of the world's most famous paintings. A new high-tech study of Leonardo da Vinci’s  Mona Lisa suggests that the Renaissance master created the painting using a previously unknown preparatory sketch. The faint traces of a charcoal underdrawing, visible thanks to multispectral analysis, are evidence of the spolvero  technique, in which the artist pricks tiny holes along the outlines of the drawing and uses charcoal dust to transfer the cartoon to canvas. The discovery, published by scientist Pascal Cotte in the Journal of Cultural ...


- Luckily, today, we can enjoy a taste of authentic Italy without ever getting on a plane. Y ears ago, I decided that the greatest need in our country was art… We were a very young country and had very few opportunities of seeing beautiful things, works of art… So, I determined to make it my life’s work. --Isabella Stewart Gardner (1840-1924) It’s amazing to realize that most of the priceless Italian Renaissance masterpieces in American museum collections result from the efforts of just a handful of individuals. Starting in the mid-1800s, American art enthusiasts began to seek out ...

- New analysis confirms the famed Dutch painter’s studio—and perhaps even the artist himself—created "Head of a Bearded Man" Since the 1980s, a postcard-sized painting has sat out of sight in the storeroom of the University of Oxford’s Ashmolean Museum . Titled Head of a Bearded Man, the portrait was donated to the museum in 1951 and displayed as an original work by revered Dutch master Rembrandt . But after a group of investigators deemed the painting inauthentic in 1981, curators decided to move it into storage. "[N]o one wanted to talk about [it] because it was this fake Rembrandt," ...


- Arts and Entertainment Doubting Gauguin An amateur detective takes on the National Gallery, and the art world Fabrice Fourmanoir, an art dealer, poses for a portrait in Sayulita, Nayarit, Mexico, on June 15. (César Rodríguez for The Washington Post) By July 30, 2020 It’s the nude that bothers Fabrice Fourmanoir. The way she’s painted is “unsightly” and “vulgar,” quite unlike the Polynesian women of his mind’s eye. Nor does he like the way she’s artificially inserted on the canvas, part of what he calls an “uninventive assemblage” with no coherent symbolism. Yet there she ...


- Sotheby’s will auction 1931 charcoal drawing that shines light on artist’s affair with Marie-Thérèse Walter A tender and largely unseen portrait by Picasso of his lover and muse Marie-Thérèse Walter, which the artist personally kept until his death, is to appear at auction for the first time. The 1931 charcoal drawing shines light on one of the great love affairs of the 20th century and was made by Picasso when his affair with Walter was still a closely guarded secret. It is “an absolute gem, it is so exquisitely beautiful,” said Helena Newman, worldwide head of Sotheby’s ...


- On Tuesday, the Drouot auction house in Paris sold a letter dually written by the artists Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin to the painter Émile Bernard for a head-turning sum of $237,000. The document, bought by the Vincent van Gogh Foundation, is the only known letter to have been written by both van Gogh and Gauguin. It contains a treasure trove of insight into the exploits of the two blossoming masters, including van Gogh’s account of the pair’s visits to brothels, both for recreational and work-related reasons. "We’ve made some excursions in the brothels, and it’s likely that ...
