Death Becomes Her: British royalty headlines Metropolitan's Costume Center exhibition

The Oscar-winning Hollywood comedy "Death Becomes Her" has lent its name to a New York exhibition that reveals nothing was more becoming to a 19th century widow than black crepe. With dozens of dresses, jewelry, hats, accessories and magazine prints, the exhibition, which opened Tuesday, looks back on a time when European and American women had to conform to rigid norms of outward grief. But not all mourning garb was created equal: from matronly black silk taffeta worn by Queen Victoria to the French sequined gowns of her daughter-in-law Queen Alexandra, the collection explores the crossover between grief and fashion. The exhibition at the newly renovated Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art -- the institution's first for fall in seven years -- also makes play of the sexual allure of an attractive young widow, unburdened by marital obligations but at risk of predatory male advances. "Black is becoming and young widows, fair, plump, and smiling, with their roguish eyes sp

LĂ©ger National Museum in Biot presents an exhibition on Fernand LĂ©ger and the Great War

Called up to the Engineering corps in 1914, Fernand LĂ©ger remained a simple soldier until 1917, when he was hospitalised and discharged. Initially a sapper and then a porter, he was posted to Argonne and Verdun. The exhibition shows the war through the eyes Fernand LĂ©ger but also the impact it has had on his work in the early twenties. The exhibition opens with the vibrant colour painting entitled Le 14 juillet (July 14) painted before he was called up. Then the artist spentfour years producing colourless sketches in his notebooks. Given that it was impossible to paint, the artist produced numerous drawings, including a recent acquisition Paysage en Argonne(Argonne Landscape), which is given pride of place in this exhibition. These drawings in a geometric style, embody the Cubist world view which emerged in 1910 and is adapted here to a unique iconography: the ravaged landscapes

Gagosian Paris presents exhibition including more than twenty monumental sculptures and paintings

Gagosian Paris presents "Le Jardin Décomposé / Decomposed Garden." Comprising more than twenty monumental sculptures and paintings, "Le Jardin Décomposé" evokes an overlapping of city and nature, a place akin to botanist and writer Gilles Clément's characterization of the Third Landscape as "the space left over by man to landscape evolution--to nature alone." Clément places swamps, roadsides, railroad embankments and other peripheral spaces within a category of "genetic reservoirs" where unattended plant life mixes with the urban environment and its detritus, sometimes to extraordinary effect. Works such as Richard Prince's Untitled (tire planter) (2007), a bright orange, tire-shaped vessel containing a tuft of weeds, and Carsten Höller's Giant Triple Mushroom (2014), a mixed-media fungal hybrid created for this exhibition, allude to the gradual commingling that might take place in
