Paintings discovered at the highly-decorated tomb from the time of Alexander the Great

Paintings of daily life have been discovered on columns at Greece's biggest ancient tomb at Amphipolis in the northern region of Macedonia, the Greek culture ministry said Saturday. "After cleaning the columns, images of people, objects and utensils were uncovered," Culture Minister Kostas Tassoulas said at a press briefing on the discovery at the site. The paintings may help solve the mystery of who is buried at the highly-decorated tomb from the time of Alexander the Great. A skeleton was found at the site earlier this month. "We will have the first indications (about the identity) after the bones are examined at an anthropological laboratory," said Lisa Mendoni, a top official at the culture ministry. Archeologists had to dig their way past huge decapitated sphinxes, break through a wall guarded by two caryatids and empty out an antechamber decorated with stunning mosaics to finally find the tomb's occupant. The culture ministry said on November 12 the remains were clearly those of

Thousands gather for rare view of a 16th century Spanish missionary's relics in Goa

Thousands of Catholic pilgrims descended on the Indian coastal state of Goa on Saturday to witness the once-a-decade exposition of the relics of a 16th century Spanish missionary. Devotees from around the world formed a queue of more than one kilometre long to venerate the relics of St Francis Xavier, which are on display until January 4 in the former Portuguese colony. After a celebratory mass led by Indian archbishops, the relics were taken in a procession from the Basilica of Bom Jesus in the historic city of Old Goa, where they are permanently housed, to the nearby Se Cathedral. Thousands had lined up to kiss the relics even before the procession began, amid tight security. "I felt peace and happiness," said 25-year-old Russian tourist Maria Stoikava. The main feast day of St Francis Xavier is on December 3, when visitor numbers

For the first time in history, Paul Cézanne catalogue raisonné launches online

The Paintings of Paul Cézanne: An Online Catalogue Raisonné launched November 20, 2014 and, for the first time in history, allows free public access to full-color images of all known paintings by Cézanne. The website takes Cézanne scholarship in an exciting new direction by permitting updates to be made quickly and regularly. The online catalogue benefits students, scholars, curators, auction houses, and galleries as well as anyone who may want to learn about and see work by one of the most revered and influential painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Paintings of Paul Cézanne: An Online Catalogue Raisonné can be accessed at Two of the authors, Jayne Warman and Walter Feilchenfeldt, worked with John Rewald on the 1996 print version of the catalogue raisonné, but it was co-author David Nash’s innovative idea four years ago to re-publish all the works with

Hitler painting goes under the hammer at auction house Weidler for 130,000 euros

A watercolour painted by a young Adolf Hitler a century ago went under the hammer for 130,000 euros ($161,000) Saturday at an auction in the southern German city of Nuremberg. The buyer wished to remain anonymous, according to auction house Weidler. The 1914 painting of the city hall in Munich was put up for sale by two elderly sisters, whose grandfather bought the artwork in 1916, when Hitler was in his 20s. The work measures 28 by 22 centimetres (11 inches by 8.7 inches). As a budding young artist, Hitler applied to the Vienna Academy of Art but was rejected. He continued to paint however, copying images from postcards that he sold to tourists. Experts consider his work to be of mediocre quality and the larger auction houses generally refuse to sell the late Nazi dictator's works. Nuremberg famously hosted the trials of Nazi leaders after World War II. Hitler

Christie's Hong Kong Asian 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale totals US$82,296,603

The sale was a confident display for the Pan-Asian platform of Asian 20th Century and Contemporary Art that Christie’s has built. In total, 11 new world auction records for the artists were set and the sale was Christie’s 2nd highest total for an evening sale in Asia. The auction opened with enthusiastic bidding from both the floor and overseas collectors vying for Southeast Asian modern and contemporary works. From the start, new records were set for Singapore artist Cheong Soo Pieng (1917-1983) with his Making Up depiction of a Chinese opera artist. The momentum continued with Victorio Edades’s (1895-1985) American Football Player and Nguyen Phan Chanh’s (1892-1984) La vendeuse de betel (The Betel Nut Seller). Le Pho’s (1907-2001) View from the Hilltop set a new world record for both the artist and any work of Vietnamese 20th century and
