Exhibition at Albertina Museum presents 100 paintings by Claude Monet

This autumn, the Albertina Museum is mounting Austria’s first broad-based presentation of works by Claude Monet (1840–1926) in over 20 years. The 100 paintings being shown include important loan works from over 40 international museums and private collections such as the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the National Gallery London, the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo, and the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow. This retrospective presentation, realized with generous support from the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris, illuminates Monet’s development from realism to impressionism and onward to a mode of painting in which colors and light gradually separate from the subjects that reflect them, with the motif as such breaking free from the mere observation of nature. As a consequence, the artist’s late works would come to pave the way for abstract expressionism in painting.

Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art opens exhibition of selected prints by Frank Stella from his Moby Dick series

Anders Wahlstedt Fine Art is presenting an exhibition of selected prints by Frank Stella from his Moby Dick series. The seven prints being exhibited stem from the Moby Dick engravings, deckled edges as well as the stand alone “Candles”, which refers to chapter 119 of Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. The dominant motif of the Moby Dick engravings is the wave-and-whale shape. It pays and trashes about in a sea of motifs from earlier metal relief and print series. The mixed-media intaglio prints of the Moby Dick engravings are solemn in their black and white tonalities enlivened with subtle washes of color. In abstract terms, Stella conveys a dramatic sense of roiling waters and breaching whales. The expressive gravity of this series is caught up in the title “Jonah Historically regarded”, a reference to chapter 83 of the novel. The Old Testament story of Jonah, who deserts God and is thrown overboard during a

Yellow Ball: Today's auction of Frank & Lorna Dunphy Collection brings £10.1 million

Today at Sotheby’s in London, an auction celebrating one of the most extraordinary art world collaborations of our times – that of Damien Hirst and his business manager, mentor and ‘partner in crime’, Frank Dunphy – bought a total of £10,088,125 million, surpassing its pre-sale estimate (£5.2-7.3 million), with a sell-through rate of 92% and participants from 43 countries. Comprising over 200 works in total, today’s live auction saw 108 lots come under the hammer; a further 98 lots feature in a dedicated online auction, which closes for bidding tomorrow. Frank and Lorna Dunphy said: “It’s been an exciting but very emotional time particularly when viewing the whole collection hung in one place. We have lived with so many of these pieces for so long and letting go has been made much easier by the expert and sympathetic way in which it has been dealt with by Sotheby’s.” Oliver

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, announces major cornerstone acquisitions for a new gallery of Medieval art

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, today announced three significant acquisitions of Medieval art, now on view in the European Art Galleries of the Museum’s Audrey Jones Beck Building. A large, rare Hebrew codex, known as The Montefiore Mainz Mahzor (circa 1310-20); a rare surviving silver-gilt and enamel Spanish processional cross (circa 1400); and one of a handful of surviving architectural drawings for Rouen cathedral, attributed to its architect, will form the core selection for a newly conceived presentation of Medieval art. Each was a purchase, funded through dedicated MFAH acquisitions endowments. “These three remarkable objects, in tandem with our significant and growing holdings of art from Asia and the Islamic worlds, will enhance the Museum’s ability

Exhibition features new paintings, drawings, and a 16mm film by Paul Sietsema

Matthew Marks announces Paul Sietsema, the new exhibition in his gallery at 523 West 24th Street. The exhibition features new paintings, drawings, and a 16mm film. For one group of paintings, Sietsema worked with found abstract paintings by anonymous artists that he purchased at local auctions in Europe. He tore up bills of different euro denominations and scanned them. The images of the currency as it fell onto the scanner were then painted by hand in a photorealistic manner on top of the abstractions. The layering and materiality of these paintings point to assemblage and earlier avant-garde aesthetics. Sietsema has also expressed interest in making physical the symbolic value of currency. In another series of canvases, Sietsema has painted images of rotary telephones in monochromatic tones. The receiver lies beside the phone’s base in a manner the artist has stated can
