A Van Gogh without a doubt: Wadsworth Atheneum painting is authenticated

After nearly 30 years of doubt, the Wadsworth Atheneum's painting, Vase with Poppies, by Vincent Van Gogh, has now been fully authenticated by specialists at the Van Gogh Museum. While the painting came to the Wadsworth in a bequest from the writer and French Impressionist collector Anne Parrish Titzell in 1957 along with works by Renoir, Monet, and Redon, Vase with Poppies has been difficult to confidently attribute since questions about Van Gogh's practice remained unresolved. Experts in Amsterdam following scientific and art-historical inquiry have determined that the painting technically and stylistically concurs with Van Gogh's documented work in 1886. This new finding means that the Wadsworth is home to two Van Gogh's, Vase with Poppies will join Self Portrait, both painted during his Paris period 1886-1887 atop earlier paintings. Vase with Poppies fits stylistically with a group of works the artist made shortly after a

Carlo Orsi - Trinity Fine Art sells Baroque masterpiece by Foggini

The highlight sale at TEFAF Maastricht 2019 for Carlo Orsi – Trinity Fine Art was the magnificent marble portrait bust portraying Marguerite Louise of Orléans, wife of Cosimo III de’ Medici, created in 1687. Marguerite Louise was a free-spirited woman and the enfant terrible of the Medici dynasty, who eventually obtained a separation and returned to France , where she lived as she pleased, bringing even her cousin King Louis XIV to despair at her outrageous behaviour. Carlo Orsi confirmed the sale to a new private European client for a seven-figure sum after it received substantial interest from collectors and museums world-wide. In the run up to TEFAF Maastricht several fresh discoveries had been made, including previously unpublished documents clarifying that the bust was commissioned by the Medici, that it is a fully autograph work by Giovanni

Gianguan Auctions Spring Sale breaks world record for Chinese Contemporary artist Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang

On Monday, March 18, Dr. Yuhua Shouzhi Wang’s “Pomegranates in Bamboo Basket” commanded $1,270,000 at Gianguan Auctions. The sale, to one of four bidders in the gallery, set a world record price for the Chinese contemporary artist. The masterpiece led a strong slate of traditional art, porcelains and carved jades, all of which reached or exceeded their pre-sale estimates. Dr. Wang’s framed ink-and-color on paper, 27" X 18"”, has been called a blending of “realism” and “rejection-of-perspective painting” by Professor Stephen Fasin of the Royal Academy of Arts. Its immediate charm lies in the fluidity of line that delivers a naturalistic composition of fruit and green branches as contrast to a monochromatic basket with handle. The work is inscribed “Pomegranates” and has one artist seal. It was painted in the United States. Dr. Wang, formerly a professor at the H

Museum der Moderne Salzburg opens the first retrospective of the work of Asger Jorn in Austria

In the exhibition Asger Jorn. The Prints, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg presents around 550 works of graphic art by the preeminent Danish visual artist, including lithographs, woodcuts, etchings, linocuts, silkscreen prints, and potato prints. “As with past exhibition projects, we are drawing on our own collection; fine art prints make up half of our holdings, and among them are works by Asger Jorn given to the museum by its founding director, Otto Breicha, that are now on view in our galleries. A generous loan from the Museum Jorn enables us to show the complete set of ca. 550 prints, the first such presentation anywhere in the world,” Thorsten Sadowsky, director of the Museum der Moderne Salzburg, notes. An ensemble of fifty-two

Lehmann Maupin opens South African artist Nicholas Hlobo's first exhibition in Seoul

Lehmann Maupin is presenting South African artist Nicholas Hlobo’s first exhibition in Seoul. The show features new and recent paintings by Hlobo, who has garnered acclaim for his works composed with his signature materials of ribbon, leather, wood, and rubber, employed with conceptual specificity to address complex issues of identity. Also included in the show is a new sculpture, Dyumpu (2019), made from copper piping—a new addition to his material repertoire—which is prominently featured in his current exhibition at SCAD Museum of Art in the United States. At the core of Hlobo’s practice is the exploration of his own identity, as he attempts to ascertain qualities that exist outside of codifying labels associated with gender, sexuality, and ethnicity. In order to challenge the restrictive terminology typically used surrounding identity,
