Erwin Wurm's 'Abstract Sculptures' series on view at the Lehmbruck museum in Duisburg

The Lehmbruck museum in Duisburg, presents works from the Erwin Wurm's "Abstract Sculptures” series. Wurm follows Tino Sehgal, who presented his work “Kiss” as part of “Sculpture 21st”, and Monika Sosnowska. For the first time, Erwin Wurm presents the latest works from his “Abstract Sculptures” series in Germany. His most recent group of works displays Wurm’s well-known sense of humour: Wurm’s sculptures make us smile even as they deliver subversive commentaries on the consumer society and contemporary sculpture. At the same time, Wurm re-interprets the aesthetic principle of abstraction, the hallmark of the modern age, by creating sculptures that are both abstract and representational. For more than three decades, Erwin Wurm has worked to expand the idea of sculpture. In his well-known series “One Minute Sculpture”, he distributes bizarre instructions to

Rare depiction of a Republican Roman man leads Christie's London Sale of Antiquities in October

The Christie’s sale of Antiquities in London on 1 October 2014 comprises 189 lots with exceptional provenance which span the ancient world from the 4th Millennium B.C. to the 7th Century A.D. Leading the sale is a rare and arresting portrait of a distinguished Roman man (estimate: £200,000-300,000). Further highlights include a Roman marble janiform herm of Dionysus (estimate: £150,000 - 250,000), an Assyrian gypsum cuneiform dedicatory panel, which is believed to be the most detailed Assyrian royal inscription known to date (estimate: £100,000 - 150,000), and property from The Rudolf Schmidt (1900-1970) Collection. With estimates ranging from £800 to £200,000 the sale is expected to realise in excess of £2 million. An arresting portrait of a Roman man encapsulates the naturalistic tradition of the Republican Period of the 1st century B.C. The emphasis on realism

Restoring Albrecht DĂĽrer's masterpiece The Arch of Honour of Maximilian I

Throughout the autumn season visitors to the National Gallery of Denmark can see the museum’s conservators at work, restoring Albrecht Dürer’s 500 year-old masterpiece The Arch of Honour of Maximilian I. For many years, this artwork by Albrecht Dürer – the largest Renaissance woodcut ever made – was on display at the Royal Collection of Graphic Art’s premises in Prinsens Palæ, now the home the National Museum of Denmark. Here, the 3.5 x 3m artwork was exposed to light and changing climate conditions, and eventually it yellowed and deteriorated to such an extent that it was no longer fit for display. Since then it has been rolled up and tucked away in the SMK storage facilities. In the spring of 2015 Dürer’s large-scale work will see the light of day again – and be the main feature of an exhibition arranged by the Royal Collection of Graphic Art. In order to prepare the work for

BP Spotlights: Autumn displays at Tate Britain celebrating 25 Years of the BP and Tate partnership

Tate Britain’s autumn season of BP Spotlights is announced today. The BP Spotlights include Tate collection works and loans that explore a particular theme or focus on the work of one artist or group of artists. Autumn highlights include three-dimensional photographs from the collection of Dr. Brian May shown beside their Pre-Raphaelite counterparts; a selection of works by William Hogarth to mark the 250th anniversary of his death; and a display of paintings, reliefs and sculptures by one of Britain’s most important Constructivist artists, Marlow Moss. There will also be rooms devoted to the primitive and carnivalesque work of Caroline Achaintre and to two series of work entitled Belgravia and Gentlemen by photographer Karen Knorr. A Poor Mans Picture Gallery is the first display in a major British art gallery devoted to the nineteenth century craze of three-

Paintings by Swiss-born artist Stephan Melzl on view at Pinakothek der Moderne

Small-scale oil paintings on wood, figurative subjects, colouristic sophistication – at first glance the painting of Swiss-born artist Stephan Melzl appears to stand in the tradition of the old masters, perhaps even seeming an anachronism in the world of contemporary art. And yet in his own distinctive way, the artist manages to combine traditional pictorial traditions with a modern aesthetic, in the process reinventing allegory for the 21st century. From afar, the muted colours of the small panel paintings radiate an aura of familiarity. Up close, however, a strange, unsettling silence emanates from the works. It would almost appear as if time has been suspended in them. The figures’ solemn statuary impression helps to elevate the objects they carry into the kind of attributes known to us in art history through the depictions
