Cave carving in Gibraltar may be first known example of Neanderthal rock art

Markings dating back 40,000 years suggest Neanderthals were considerably more sophisticated than previously thought, researchers say. They reached their conclusions after the discovery of engravings deep in Gorham's Cave in Gibraltar -- the first Neanderthal cave etchings found anywhere in the world. Are the deep grooves of horizontal and vertical criss-crossing lines art? Archaeologists are refusing to go that far, but they say, it shows Neanderthals -- contrary to long-held beliefs -- did possess the capacity for abstract thought and expression. "It brings Neanderthals even closer to us," said Professor Clive Finlayson, the director of the Gibraltar Museum and coordinator of the international team that

Signed Hitler photo rescued from Fuhrer's Berlin bunker in sale at the Auction Centre

Legendary war correspondent William Forrest was there filing eyewitness accounts when Hitler’s dive bombers flattened Guernica in 1937 in support of Franco’s Fascists in the Spanish Civil War. He was there too when the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939, his reports consistently making the front page of the News Chronicle. As the paper’s chief war correspondent, he covered the retreat at Dunkirk; the Eighth Army’s desert campaign (he was wounded in Tobruk) and the landings in Sicily, Salerno and Normandy. And he was there to witness the crossing of the Rhine and the fall of Berlin. Now a unique memento of his career – a signed photograph of Adolf Hitler, recovered from the ruins of the Führerbunker – has surfaced to be sold in a Cheshire auction next month. Forrest was the first war correspondent, perhaps among the first outside Hitler’s closest entourage, to set foot

Metropolitan Museum launches flagship app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, announced that the Museum launched today its flagship smartphone app—titled simply The Met—developed exclusively for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This free digital resource is the easiest way to see what’s happening at the Met every day, wherever you are. The Met app is available on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, and can be downloaded free from the App Store. Mr. Campbell said: “With so much to see and do at the Met on a daily basis, we wanted to create a simple yet personalized way for our community to find the art, exhibitions, and events that matter most to them. The new app is a pocket-sized, customizable tool that puts the Met at users' fingertips. It will be great for both New Yorkers and everyone in our global community who wants to stay connected with the Met--from anywhere in the world." Sree Sreenivasan, the Museum’s Chief Digi

Appeal launched to save Wedgwood Collection - £2.74m needed by November

The Wedgwood Collection – one of the most important industrial archives in the world and a unique record of over 250 years of British art and history, is at risk of being broken up and sold on the open market unless the final £2.74m tranche of the full £15.75m required to save the Collection is raised by the end of November 2014. Public donations will be matched pound-for-pound, thanks to the generosity of a private charitable trust. Thanks to major support from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), the Art Fund and a small number of private trusts and foundations, over £13m of the £15.75m needed has already been raised. The Collection is the principal asset of the Wedgwood Museum Trust, which inherited an estimated £134m of pension debt as an unfortunate consequence of the UK subsidiary of Waterford Wedgwood Plc going

Totally Thames launches Florentijn Hofman's first ever UK commission: HippopoThames

Totally Thames launched Florentijn Hofman’s first ever UK commission, ‘HippopoThames’. The renowned Dutch artist has created an extraordinary 21-metre-long hippo sculpture, which was towed upriver today from its build site at Royal Docks to its end position at Nine Elms on the South Bank, central London’s newest district. The piece is commissioned by Thames Festival Trust with support from the Mayor of London, the Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership, Wanda One (UK) and Vauxhall One. Hofman launched the installation at 18:30 Tuesday 2 September, and it will remain in situ until 28 September throughout the month of Totally Thames. The installation is semi-immersed in the river and will rise and fall with the tide. Hofman is known for scaled-up sculptures, such as Rubber Duck which has been travelling to several major cities since 2007, from Auckland and Sao Paulo to Hong Kong. Hofman’s sculptures
