Rare items of Aboriginal cricketing history found at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum

Historic Aboriginal artefacts relating to the 1868 Aboriginal cricket tour of England have been uncovered at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery (RAMM), in Exeter. The discovery was made by Dr Gaye Sculthorpe, curator and section head of Oceania at the British Museum and curator of the BP exhibition Indigenous Australia: enduring civilisation at the British Museum showing until 2 August. While on a research visit last week to inspect the Australian collections of RAMM she noticed a group of artefacts from the state of Victoria. She said that seeing the name and date of the donor, W. R. Hayman 1868, was “a Eureka moment”. Until now, the only Aboriginal artefact known to be surviving from this tour is an Aboriginal club, in the collection of the Marylebone Cricket Club Museum, Lords’ Ground, London which is currently on loan to the British Museum for the BP

Anish Kapoor invites German artist Carsten Höller to create slide for Arcelormittal Orbit

Anish Kapoor has invited German artist Carsten Höller, who is currently the subject of a major show at the Hayward Gallery, to create a giant slide for The ArcelorMittal Orbit in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. This is a unique combination of artworks by two of the world's leading artists and will be a major new art installation for the capital. Anish Kapoor said: "I am delighted that my work, The Orbit at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is the site for a collaboration with Carsten Höller. I believe it will result in the making of a new work which will bring two works of art together in an ambitious way." Carsten Höller said: “I am thrilled that my tallest slide so far will cling onto Anish Kapoor’s The Orbit, taking an existing artwork as its site. A slide is a sculptural work with a pragmatic aspect; a device for experiencing an emotional state that is a unique condition somewhere between delight and madness.” Carsten Höller uses his training as a scientist in h

Morphy's awarded right to auction legendary Kyle D. Moore petroliana collection

Dan Morphy, founder and president of Morphy Auctions, announced today that his firm has been chosen to auction the prestigious Kyle D. Moore petroliana collection, now owned by a private investor. According to Morphy, it is the most valuable collection ever to pass through Morphy’s doors, having an estimated value of $15,000,000 to $20,000,000. Containing more than 900 gas globes, 150 vintage gas pumps and 2,000 petroleum-related advertising signs, the collection was amassed over a 40-year period by Moore, a cable TV entrepreneur who died in March of 2014. Eight years prior to his demise, Moore sold the entire collection to an Oklahoma businessman. “Even though the collection belongs to another individual, it is so famous within the hobby, it is still widely known by the nickname ‘Kyle’s Collection,’” said Dan Matthews, head of Morphy Auctions’ Petroliana

'Sensational find' at the Austrian National Library reveals passion of one of history's great affairs

"Please forgive me for what I've done, I could not resist love" -- these are the final dramatic words of Baroness Mary Vetsera, whose farewell letters were discovered in a bank vault in Vienna 126 years after she famously committed suicide with Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria, experts announced Friday. Hailing the find as "sensational", the Austrian National Library (ONB) said bank employees had stumbled across the precious documents during a clear-out of the archives. They had been there since 1926, according to the library. "An unknown person deposited a leather-bound folder containing numerous personal documents, letters and photographs of the Vetsera family, including the farewell letters of Mary Vetsera from 1889," the ONB said in a statement. "Dear Mother/ Please forgive me for what I've done/ I could not resist love/ In accordance with Him, I want to be

Previously in the artist’s personal collection, these works possess impeccable provenance, having never before been presented to the public. Full Circle offers an unprecedented opportunity to understand and acquire important works exploring the contemporary
