Bagatti Valsecchi Museum presents the restoration of the Marinoni Polyptych

The Polyptych of St. John the Baptist returns home after a year being restored, and the Bagatti Valsecchi Museum celebrates it with a compact exhibit, curated by Chiara Paratico, who has analyzed this work, as intense as it remains mysterious. Realized in 1493 by Giovanni Marinoni together with his sons Bernardino and Antonio, the polyptych is the only signed and dated piece coming from their workshop that has reached us, today. On exhibit until October 2, the polyptych is accompanied by a touch screen with videos in English and Italian that allow the visitor to contextualize the altarpiece and to know the wide-ranging activities of the Marinoni in the territory of Bergamo, better. Afterwards, the piece will return to its original position in the Bagatti Valsecchi mansion. The Marinoni were a dynasty of painters originally from Desenzano al Serio who were active for five generations, and who dominated artistic producti

"O'Keeffe, New York, and Modernism" at the Portland Museum of Art

O’Keeffe, Stettheimer, Torr, Zorach: Women Modernists in New York examines the art and careers of four pioneering artists and their contributions to American modernism in parallel for the first time. Through this exhibition, the PMA invites visitors to explore works by some of the most significant modernists in American art history: Georgia O’Keeffe, Marguerite Thompson Zorach, Florine Stettheimer, and Helen Torr. In presenting works by these artists together and connecting their careers in New York City, this exhibition offers valuable perspectives on the meaning of modernism, the life of a working artist in New York in the early 20th century, and the shared and differing experiences of being women at a crucial moment in first-wave feminism. Throughout the early 20th century, artists were radically breaking with all traditions in art, inventing a new visual language

Vadehra Art Gallery mourns the passing of the Indian artist SH Raza

We received the news of SH Raza’s passing away with great sorrow. An artist whom we deeply admire and who has been closely associated with the Vadehra Art Gallery for over two decades. Raza Saab’s demise is indeed the end of an era. His colour field paintings have been a deep source of inspiration to all of us as has been the artist himself who worked with steadfast commitment well into his 90s. The vibrant abstractions were distillations of everything he experienced in his long and amazing life – the references to nature and images of his childhood in the forest of Madhya Pradesh which he cherished so deeply, the early formative years spent in Bombay among the Progressive Artists Group and his subsequent move to France in 1950. Even as he settled there, marrying artist Janine Mongillat who remained his steady companion until her death in 2002, he never lost contact with India. His frequent visits back home starting from the 1960s contributed to a vast compilation of me

Cambridge University: Parasites hitch ride down Silk Road

Merchants plying the ancient Silk Road between China and the Mediterranean moved more than gold, fabrics, spices and tea -- they also exported gut parasites, researchers said Friday. It has long been theorised that the Silk Road helped spread bubonic plague, leprosy, anthrax and other infectious diseases between East Asia, the Middle East and Europe -- though concrete archaeological evidence has been scant. But now analysis of the contents of an ancient latrine along the route has revealed evidence that traders 2,000 years ago did indeed spread disease. The team from Britain and China examined faeces preserved on wood and bamboo sticks wrapped in cloth -- the toilet paper of their day -- that were excavated in 1992 at the Xuanquanzhi pit stop in north-west China. Unearthed from a latrine dating back to 111 BC, during China's Han Dynasty, and which was still in use in 109 AD, seven

Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin opens "Common Ground" exhibition

Common Affairs was conceived as a cooperation project between the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin, the Polish Institute Berlin, and the Zachęta – National Gallery of Art in Warsaw. At the two Berlin venues, the exhibition presents a selection of artists who were nominated for the VIEWS Award from 2003 to the present. It touches on the history and impact of the award initiated by Deutsche Bank and the Zachęta, which has become the most important prize for contemporary Polish art. At the same time, the curators of the show, Julia Kurz (Leipzig) and Stanisław Welbel (Warsaw), together with the participating artists, explore the freedom, discourse, and exchange afforded by public and private sponsorship, and how art is used as an ideological instrument as a result. The word "common" can mean "ordinary" but also "joint" in the sense of shared. In connection with both
