Roman Emperor Augustus' frescoed rooms unveiled for first time after years of restoration

Lavishly frescoed rooms in the houses of the Roman Emperor Augustus and his wife Livia are opening for the first time to the public Thursday, after years of painstaking restoration. The houses on Rome's Palatine hill where the emperor lived with his family are re-opening after a 2.5 million euro ($3.22 million) restoration to mark the 2,000 anniversary of Augustus's death -- with previously off-limit chambers on show for the first time. From garlands of flowers on Pompeian red backgrounds to majestic temples and scenes of rural bliss, the rooms are adorned with vividly coloured frescoes, many in an exceptional condition. Restorers said their task had been a complex one, with bad weather during excavation threating the prized relics of a golden era in the Eternal City. "We had to tackle a host of problems which were all connected, from underground grottos to sewers -- and I'm talking about a sewer system stretching over 35 hectares (86 acres)," Mariarosaria Barbera, Rome's archaeologica

Biggest retrospective devoted to Marc Chagall in the last 50 years in Italy opens in Milan

“Will the hurried men of today be able to penetrate her work, her world?” is the question asked by Marc Chagall in 1947 in the postface to the memoirs of his wife Bella, who left him “in the shadows” following her sudden death three years earlier. However, this question could also be asked about his own work, the work of an artist who speaks such a universal language that he is loved by everyone alike, both young and old, men and women, scholars and men on the street. Chagall is an artist who is known and recognized by everyone and, out of all the 20th-century artists, was one of the few to remain faithful to himself despite living through a century of wars, catastrophes, political and technological upheavels. The exhibition narrative has arisen from a question and a need: on the one hand, the attempt to understand the strength that an enabled an artist who experimented with the styles of all the avant-garde movements, to remain

Arte Povera and 'Multipli, Torino 1970-1975' curated by Elena Re opens at SprĂĽth Magers Berlin

In 1970 Giorgio Persano opened Multipli, his first gallery in Torino. Multipli was exceptional for its time. Working with Arte Povera artists and with other Italian artists linked to the conceptual art of the era, Multipli produced a significant body of multiples from 1970 to 1975. Persano and his artists did not view the multiple merely as a means to circulate or multiply the image through the reproduction of an original. The gallery was founded, rather, on the notion that a work of art could be democratic. Although each piece was made as part of a series, each object would also retain the characteristics and aura of a unique piece. Curated by Elena Re, SprĂĽth Magers Berlin presents an exhibition that focuses in particular on artists associated with Arte Povera, exploring the idea of the multiple as the driving force behind a new form of artistic production. The artists who made and exhibited work at Multipli were Giovanni An

Exhibition at the Israel Museum reveals the personal, and professional world of famous artists

The new exhibition The Artist and the Studio reveals the personal, and professional world of famous artists through works that immortalize them. The exhibition explores the intimate surroundings in which great artists – painters, sculptors, and photographers – create their works. Spanning a broad range of periods, it focuses on the means and environments that foster the creative process, featuring representations of the artist’s tools, portraits of fellow artists, and self-portraits. On display are works from the 16th and 17th centuries by such Baroque masters as Annibale Carracci and Anthony van Dyck, alongside works by modern artists like Edgar Degas and Max Libermann and by Israeli artist Avigdor Arikha. Interview with curator Shlomit Steinberg. The exhibition The Artist and the Studio includes the works of two great artists: one a nude Picasso - a smooth, and shiny bronze sculpture depicting the artist with an ideal body

Africa's first major Contemporary Art auction to be held by Strauss & Co. in Cape Town

The first major contemporary art auction on the African continent is set to take place in Cape Town when Strauss & Co presents its inaugural Contemporary Art auction on 26 February 2015 in conjunction with The Cape Town Art Fair 2015. The auction, one of the five core events of The Cape Town Art Fair, will be held at the Regatta Centre of the Royal Cape Yacht Club. Located in the Table Bay Harbour with its breathtaking view of the marina, the setting harks back to the days when the city was a pivotal stop on trade routes linking the east and the west. With ever-increasing international interest in the art of South Africa and Africa, it provides the ideal location for an auction of the finest contemporary art. “One of the shortcomings of the South African art market” says Stephan Welz, MD at Strauss & Co, “has been the absence of a lively, well presented, and most importantly a respected secondary market in cont
