Archaeologists find burial of unusual characteristics in the Mexican State of Sinaloa

In the southern parts of Sinaloa, a burial of unusual characteristics was discovered, made up of elements from old Occidental Mexico and rich offerings deposited around bone remains. As the excavation advanced, never seen before archeological traces surged; informed archeologist Victor Joel Santos Ramírez, director of the project. First, there were dozens of miniature figurines. “In no other excavation in Chametla have we found figurines in such numbers and with such rare characteristics, which made us believe that this was an important offering, to wit, we decided to begin a systematic investigation,” he said. The archeologist of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) explained that as the excavation continued they ran into ceramic pots and figurines, along with a great amount of beads and necklaces of turquoise or green stone, a turquoise hoop, a spindle, a hollow fragment of a miniature, and chipp

AGO to present major retrospective of NYC art-world legend Jean-Michel Basquiat in winter 2015

Famous by age 20 for his groundbreaking drawings and paintings, Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960–1988) took the cultural hotbed of the New York art world by storm in the early 1980s. Basquiat gained international recognition by creating powerful and expressive works that confronted issues of racism, politics and social hypocrisy. Although his career was cut short by his untimely death at age 27, his works remain hugely influential. Opening Feb. 7, 2015, at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Basquiat marks the first-ever major retrospective of the artist’s work in Canada and will feature more than 140 large-scale paintings and drawings from private collections and public museums across Europe and North America. Described by the artist himself as a “springboard to deeper truths about the individual,” Basquiat’s vivid and poignant works were always highly conceptual in their exploration of race, class and fame using the motifs o

Suspected works by Degas, Rodin recently found in German art collector Cornelius Gurlitt's flat

Sculptures thought to be by masters Degas and Rodin have been found in the flat of the late German art collector whose priceless hoard included Nazi-looted works, investigators said Thursday. Images of the works, once their origins are verified, will be published in the online inventory to help trace their rightful owners in case they were once plundered by the Nazis, said the task force in charge of the investigation. The sculptures were only recently found in the Munich flat of Cornelius Gurlitt, the reclusive son of a Nazi-era art dealer. Gurlitt died in May at age 81, after the discovery of his vast collection drew worldwide attention last year. Before his death, Gurlitt struck an accord with the German government to help track down the rightful owners of pieces in his trove of 1,280 paintings, drawings and sketches, including Jews whose property was stolen or extorted under the Third Reich. The works -- including masterpieces by Picasso and Monet
