Museum of London showcases rare Roman sarcophagus in first public display

In 2017 a rare Roman sarcophagus was excavated from Harper Road in Southwark; a site that archaeological research has shown was part of a large Roman cemetery. Today, the Museum of London Docklands reveals that this remarkable discovery will be on display for the first time in a major new exhibition, Roman Dead, which opens on 25th May 2018. London’s complex Roman burial landscape is an important source of historical knowledge, providing insight into Romans’ religious beliefs and their treatment of the dead. This new exhibition will investigate the cemeteries of ancient London, examining the discoveries that were made there and their context within today’s modern cityscape. Exotic grave goods from across the Roman Empire are just some of over 200 objects on display. Highlighted are an expensive multi-coloured glass dish found with cremated remains and a jet pendant in

Middelheim Museum Antwerp acquires a Bruce Nauman masterpiece

Thanks to an especially good cooperation between the City of Antwerp and private partners, the Middelheim Museum is being presented with the rare opportunity of expanding its collection with an important work of art. This concerns the Diamond Shaped Room with Yellow Light by the American artist Bruce Nauman.

Paul Kasmin Gallery announces representation of the Estate of Stuart Davis

Paul Kasmin Gallery announced worldwide representation of the estate of Stuart Davis (1892–1964), one of the preeminent figures of the early American Modern movement. Known for his boldly colorful abstract works that fuse jazz references with New York City landscapes and daily objects, Davis paved the way for modernism in America and his impact endures today. In collaboration with Earl Davis, the artist’s son, an exhibition of Davis’ rarely seen black-and-white paintings and works on paper is scheduled for fall 2018 in the gallery’s 293 Tenth Avenue space. Born in Philadelphia in 1892, Davis was encouraged at an early age by his parents to pursue painting and went on to study in Manhattan under Robert Henri. Henri, the leading figure of the

Kunsthaus Zurich to receive the collection of Gabriele and Werner Merzbacher

The Kunsthaus Zürich is to receive the collection of Gabriele and Werner Merzbacher as a long-term loan, one of the most important private collections of modern art. A total of 65 works have been promised to the Kunsthaus for at least 20 years. They include paintings by the great masters of Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and Fauvism, members of the ‘Brücke’ and ‘Blauer Reiter’ groups, and many more. The cooperation, which involves 65 paintings and a minimum commitment of 20 years, is a gesture of gratitude to Zurich and Switzerland by Werner Merzbacher, who was born in Oehringen, Germany, in 1928 and came to Switzerland as a child refugee in 1939, and a chance for him to share his passion for art with the public at large. The Kunsthaus Zürich has been given the opportunity to view almost 200 paintings and sculptures and

Pinakothek der Moderne marks the anniversary of the second edition of Giorgio Vasari's 'Vite'

450 years ago, Giorgio Vasari (1511–1574) published the second edition of his Vite, a collection of biographies of famous artists from the 13th to the mid-16th century. Compared with the first edition from 1550, the second edition is revised and significantly expanded, and established Vasari’s reputation as an art historian and as the “father of art history”. In his Vite de’ più eccellenti pittori scultori ed architettori (Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects), as the work is titled in Italian, Vasari not only offers a series of biographical narratives but also attempts to organize and systematize them. In the eyes of the Renaissance man Vasari, the art of Antiquity had attained a high degree of perfection, but had then fallen from grace, before experiencing a rebirth ( rinascita ) beginning with Cimabue and
