Klimt and the Ringstrasse: A Showcase of Grandeur opens at the Belvedere in Vienna

During the boom years of the Gründerzeit, a profusion of palaces and grand public buildings was built around Vienna’s magnificent boulevard, the Ringstrasse. In summer 2015, the Belvedere’s exhibition Klimt and the Ringstrasse – A Showcase of Grandeur focuses on the charismatic Ringstrasse painters who shaped their era. Starting with the oeuvre of the “painter prince” Hans Makart, the exhibition traces developments up to the triumph of Gustav Klimt and his painters’ collective, the Künstler-Compagnie. Reconstructions of entire decorative ensembles present glimpses of the glittering lifestyle in the Ringstrasse era to visitors. The Vienna Ringstrasse is one of the most striking ensembles of architecture in the city and a fundamental part of the World Heritage Site, the “historic centre of Vienna”. Its construction in the late nineteenth century expressed

Two exceptional loans join works from the Art Institute's rich collection in new focused exhibition

Of all the Impressionists who focused on modern life, Edgar Degas was the most dedicated to the classical tradition of depicting the human form, especially that form in movement and performance. In this focused exhibition, two exceptional loans—a remarkable painting from the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., Scene from the Steeplechase: The Fallen Jockey, and a beloved sculpture from a private Chicago collection, Little Dancer Aged Fourteen—join other loans and paintings, drawings, pastels, and sculpture from the Art Institute’s permanent collection to explore the artist’s career-long fascination with the figure in motion through the subjects of the racetrack and ballet. A striking canvas, Degas’s Scene from the Steeplechase: The Fallen Jockey marked a

Dr. David J. Skorton begins his tenure as Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution

Dr. David J. Skorton began his tenure as Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution Wednesday, July 1. Skorton is the 13th Secretary in the Smithsonian’s 169-year history. “I am eager to begin working with the scholars, curators, educators and staff who have made the Smithsonian a world leader in science, the arts, the social sciences and the humanities,” Skorton said. “At any moment, the Smithsonian has researchers on every continent, exploring everything from the past and present state of our planet, to discovering new worlds at the edges of the galaxy. At the same time, scholars and curators bring a fresh understanding of worldwide cultures and the inspiration of the arts.” Under his leadership, Skorton said, “The Smithsonian will continue to teach and delight educators, students and learners of all ages through its museums, affiliates and online presence.” The Smithsonian was

'Gods and Heroes: Masterpieces from the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris' on view at the Portland Art Museum

This rich overview of masterpieces from the École des Beaux-Arts—the original school of fine arts in Paris and a repository for work by Europe’s most renowned artists since the seventeenth century—includes approximately 140 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper dating from antiquity through the nineteenth century. The exhibition focuses on epic themes such as courage, sacrifice, and death, as well as the ways that changing political and philosophical systems affected the choice and execution of these subjects. Among the featured works are paintings by JacquesLouis David, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Anne-Louis Girodet, and Jean-AugusteDominique Ingres; sculpture by Antoine-Louis Barye, Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, JeanAntoine Houdon, and François

18th century Spanish-built Alamo fort in San Antonio awarded World Heritage status

The 18th century Spanish-built San Antonio Missions in Texas in the United States, including Alamo, were awarded world heritage status by the UN's cultural body on Sunday. UNESCO's World Heritage Committee approved the listing of the five Spanish Roman Catholic sites built in and around what is now the city of San Antonio, including the Alamo fort, where in 1836 some 180 Texans fighting for independence from Mexico fought to the death against Mexican General Santa Anna's army of several thousand soldiers. The site comprises architectural and archaeological structures, farmland, residencies, churches and granaries, as well as water distribution systems, UNESCO said. The complexes "illustrate the Spanish Crown's efforts to colonize, evangelize and defend the northern frontier of New Spain," UNESCO said. It said the San Antonio Missions were
