- ALLENTOWN, Pa. — This is the sort of thing art lovers fantasize about: Finding out that old painting you thought was a copy is actually a genuine work by a great master – and it's potentially worth millions. So it is for the citizens of Allentown, Pennsylvania, and the Allentown Art Museum . Thanks to modern technology, cleaning and some expert detective work, a nearly 400-year-old portrait painting that had long been attributed to an unknown artist in Rembrandt's workshop has now been judged to have been a work of the Dutch master himself. For decades, the Allentown Art Museum ...

- VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Putting more masterpieces in Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel to join his ceiling frescoes and Last Judgement wall might seem as superfluous as adding more diamonds to the Crown Jewels. But the creator of those masterpieces is Raphael, Michelangelo’s Renaissance contemporary and rival, so the Vatican has made an exception for a brief stay. For the first time in centuries, all 12 tapestries designed by Raphael have been hung on the lower walls of the Sistine Chapel as part of celebrations marking the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death. "They were conceived for ...

- This year marks the 500 th anniversary of the death of the Renaissance artist Raphael of Urbino . Despite the passing of half a millennium, Raphael’s legacy influences our conception of good art to this day. “Raphael’s art, more than that of any other artist, determined the standards of ideal beauty, “good” composition, and systematic drawing until the triumph of the avant-garde in the second half of the nineteenth century,” says Jonathan Bober, curator at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. “In turn, it lay the foundation for art academies and taste, at least at one ...

- The Brooklyn Museum has hung Jacques-Louis David’s “Bonaparte Crossing the Alps” alongside an adaptation by Kehinde Wiley. It’s a face-off between two visions of the political power of art. Kehinde Wiley’s ‘‘Napoleon Leading the Army over the Alps’’ (2005), left, and Jacques-Louis David’s ‘‘Bonaparte Crossing the Alps’’ (1801) shown in a composite photo of the exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. A French masterpiece has come to New York for the first time ever, and has been greeted with a curious silence. It’s Jacques-Louis David’s “Bonaparte Crossing the ...

- Emerging artist Amoako Boafo has known for some time that his paintings would end up at auction one day. “I just didn’t think it would be any time soon,” said the 35-year-old Ghana native. Just eight months after Boafo completed “The Lemon Bathing Suit” -- a portrait of his friend’s mother floating in a swimming pool -- the Los Angeles-based entrepreneur who bought the canvas is it Thursday at Phillips in London. “Now he wants to make profit from it,” Boafo said of the seller, Stefan Simchowitz. “It’s only sad. The painting is so recent.” The work will be offered as the ...


- The practice of pastiche has paradoxically generated some of the most exciting original art that’s been released this century: just think about the catalogue of pop superstar Lana Del Rey. Similarly, the artist Eric Doeringer has made his name by generating “bootleg” interpretations of work made by some of the most famous artists in history, including Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, John Baldessari and Andy Warhol. This week, at the Felix LA Art Fair taking place at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, Rental Gallery and the A Hug From The Art World gallery are launching “Eric Doeringer: The ...

- I have a young artist in my house, age 4, who does not care for any suggestions I might offer about what she is painting. She allowed me to show her how to do a watercolor wash one day, and has run with that, doing rainbows and sunsets and foggy hearts, but on her terms. She is a painter in the truest sense, creating on paper whatever is in her head, and set on being a "great artist" (her words.) She is also a perfectionist, frustrated when the paint runs or her letters are malformed, so I've been giving her books that widen her ideas about how art should look — Dr. Seuss's Horse Museum ; ...

- 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 and ...


- 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 ...

- The Museum of Modern Art. Iwan Baan, Courtesy of MoMA. 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 ...
