Claremont Rug Company's Jan David Winitz Says Connoisseurs Are Choosing Antique Oriental Rugs as Wall Art

Claremont Rug Company founder/president Jan David Winitz says that more than half his clients are choosing to acquire antique Oriental rugs to display as wall art. The interest in using rugs on walls in addition to as floor pieces has increased markedly in the past several years. "Art collectors are increasingly coming to me after having studied our website with requests that involve high collectible and connoisseur level pieces to serve as wall art. "They tell me that, compared to other art and antiques that they collect, Oriental rugs are undervalued both as art and as investments." He attributes recognition to the education-oriented information on the Claremont website. "What they deeply appreciate is our 'Oriental Rug Pyramid,' which divides carpets into six tiers, with Level 1 to Level 6. It is instructional and a graphic depiction, allowing them to make informed decisions."

Early Van Gogh works auctioned in Belgium

Two early works by Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh were auctioned in the Belgian city of Ghent on Sunday, fetching near estimate prices that the organiser said were bargains. The first work, a watercolour of flowers, was snapped up for 220,000 euros ($240,000), slightly more than expected, auctioneer Johan Kiggen told AFP. The second piece, a charcoal drawing of a jug, went for 140,000 euros, just below the estimated price. "Everyone is happy," Kiggen said, who added that buyers could only bid in person. "The two works went for a very good price for the buyers," he said. The two buyers, who wished to remain anonymous, were both Belgians and pledged to keep the works in the country, which was a request of the seller. Kiggen said the works have been certified as authentic on several occasions, and are featured in Van Gogh catalogues.

Exhibition examines American art at the height of the Great Depression

The Art Institute of Chicago is presenting Photography + Folk Art: Looking for America in the 1930s, an examination of American art at the height of the Great Depression. Connecting the twin impulses of the time to record the present and collect the past, the exhibition tracks the rising interest in the arts of everyday people, places, and things, spurred in part by massive governmental efforts to document daily life. With over 130 objects on view—from photography to painting, sculpture, and decorative arts—Photography + Folk Art provides a window into the culture and conditions that would shape American visual identity. The exhibition, co-organized by Elizabeth Siegel, Curator of Photography, and Elizabeth McGoey, Ann S. and Samuel M. Mencoff Associate Curator

Albertina Museum exhibits over 200 drawings, printed graphics, and paintings by Albrecht Dürer

It has been decades since so many works by Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) have been seen in one place: thanks to valuable international loans, Vienna’s Albertina Museum—itself home to numerous world-famous icons of drawing by Dürer including the Hare, Praying Hands, and Large Piece of Turf —is presenting over 200 examples of Dürer’s drawings, printed graphics, and paintings in autumn 2019. Upon its reopening in 2003, it was with an exhibition of works by Albrecht Dürer that the Albertina Museum ended up welcoming a total of half a million visitors. And now, a selection of over 100 drawings, a dozen paintings, personal writings, and other rare documents presents the oeuvre of this Renaissance genius more comprehensively than ever before. The Albertina Museum holds the world’s most important collection of Albrecht Dürer’s drawings, a collection that numbers nearly 140 works. The historical background

British Museum exhibits works from Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles' collection

Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles (1781 – 1826) spent most of his career as an East India Company official in Southeast Asia. He was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of Java in 1811 and assumed the Lieutenant Governorship of Sumatra in 1818. Raffles is credited as being the founder of modern Singapore – but remains a controversial figure, particularly for his policies. When he was Lieutenant-Governor of Java, for example, he ordered troops to attack the most powerful court, which still has consequences to this day. Over time, he has been viewed as a scholarly expert on the region, a progressive reformer, a committed imperialist and an incompetent colonial official. He was also an avid collector of objects from the region, particularly amassing material from Java. He acquired objects to show his European audience that Javanese society was worth colonising.
