- From Maurizio Cattelan's Bedtime Stories to Neïl Beloufa's post-capitalist fable featuring camels and foxes French-Algerian artist Neïl Beloufa has taken on the story-telling mantle in a big way by creating his own allegory, which can be read on the website of Mendes Wood DM gallery.

- Just like the rest of us, it seems that the painting needs to practice some social distancing. Back away from The Scream —literally. The famed Edvard Munch painting is deteriorating, and it’s all because adoring visitors to Olso’s Munch Museum  are crowding its display.

That’s why, he explained, ...

- Munch’s ‘Scream’ Is Fading Because of Viewers’ Breath, New Study Finds to fade? The conservation department at the Munch Museum in Oslo had long been wondering this, and now, scientists have their answer.

- The first painting I ever loved was probably a cliche. Now I understand why it moved me so. When I was about 10 or 12 years old, I taped a print of a little French town to the wall of my bedroom. It was a poster I’d brought home from a family visit to an art museum in Boston, perhaps the Museum of Fine Arts or the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum . The painting showed a street gently winding along a garden wall, leading into a village of old houses. It was probably made in late autumn or early spring because the sky was gray and the trees spectral. It was the first painting that took me out ...
