Stedelijk Museum dedicates collection presentation to American painter Barnett Newman

Beginning on April 24, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam dedicates a collection presentation to Barnett Newman (1905-1970), one of the most celebrated artists of Color Field Painting, a movement that was part of American Abstract Expressionism. Occupying two galleries, the Stedelijk presents a number of works from its own collection, including the wall-size paintings Cathedra (1951), The Gate (1954), Right Here (1954), and Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue III (1967-1968). Newman’s series of etchings, Notes, will join the presentation. Barnett Newman, the son of Polish immigrants, was born in New York. At first, Newman painted in a surrealist style, but began painting fields of monochrome color in the 1940s. The discovery of the zip, a vertical line dissecting the color plane, signalled the birth of his unique style. Like other colorfield painters, including Mark Rothko, Newman searched for a metaphysical art, partly i

Expected to fetch $1.9 million, Soviet space capsule up for sale at Lempertz in Belgium

For those who have everything, how about a Soviet-era space capsule dating back to the 1970s, when it carried three cosmonauts into space? German firm Lempertz unveiled plans Wednesday for what it says is the first such auction in Europe, with the capsule expected to fetch up to 1.4 million euros ($1.9 million) on May 7. "It was developed during the Soviet-US space race, part of the Cold War," the auction house said. A British company first bought the capsule, which was also used for a short unmanned mission in 1978 and then for training, it said. It then decided to sell, handing it to Lempertz to manage. The capsule has been extensively restored, removing all trace of the searing burn marks it picked up on re-entry to the earth's atmosphere. Now it is a newly painted pristine white, measuring some 2.2 metres (seven feet) high and 2.8 metres in diameter, weighing in at nearly two tons. A circular door opens

A dedicated section to the Collection will be sold during the Evening sale of Post-War and Contemporary Art on May 13th, and, in addition to the extraordinary Cornells, the Collection includes major works by Alexander Calder, Pablo Picasso, Matta, Lucas Samaras and Wayne Thiebaud.

Exhibition of more than 25 vintage photographs by Bob Colacello opens at Steven Kasher Gallery

Steven Kasher Gallery presents an exhibition of more than 25 vintage photographs by Bob Colacello of Andy Warhol and his inner circle in the 1970s and 80s. This is the second exhibition of Colacello’s photographs at Steven Kasher Gallery. Taken when Colacello was the editor of Warhol’s magazine Interview from 1971 – 1983, the images chronicle Andy Warhol as he redefined modern art, provoked controversy, seduced the rich and famous and led the avant-garde. The exhibition is mounted in conjunction with the rerelease of Bob Colacello’s Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close Up (Vintage Books/Knopf DoubleDay 2014). Bob Colacello spent a decade by Warhol’s side as employee, collaborator, wingman, and confidante. The photographs in the exhibition portray Warhol at work and at play, Warhol’s circle of associates, the Factory office, parties and openings around the world, and quiet moments where
