Evidence of Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem found at the City of David

Evidence of the destruction of Jerusalem at the hands of the Babylonians is currently being unearthed in the City of David in excavations conducted by the Israel Antiquities Authority at the Jerusalem Walls National Park, funded by the City of David Foundation (Elad). In the excavations – concentrated on the eastern slope of the City of David, dwelling places 2,500 years old, once covered by a rockslide, have been revealed. Nestled within the rockslide many findings have surfaced: charred wood, grape seeds, pottery, fish scales and bones, and unique, rare artifacts. These findings depict the affluence and character of Jerusalem, capital of the Judean Kingdom, and are mesmerizing proof of the city's demise at the hands of the Babylonians. Among the excavation's salient findings were dozens of jugs which served to store both grain and liquids, a stamp seal appearing on some of them. Furthermore, one of the seals discovered

Basquiat: A darling of pop culture, but not museums

Jean-Michel Basquiat enjoys a stratospheric following -- earlier this year, a 1982 oil painting by the late 20th century great became the most expensive work by a US artist ever sold at auction. But 29 years after his death, his legacy is largely a triumph of popular culture over museums, which have been accused of downplaying his stature. New York is where the black artist -- son of a Haitian father and Puerto Rican mother -- was born and raised, spent most of his life and drew most of his inspiration. On May 18, it was in the Big Apple that one of his paintings fetched $110.5 million at Sotheby's, jettisoning him into a pantheon of high-selling greats like Picasso. Yet America's cultural capital has no public monument to him, no institution named after him and has preserved none of his famous graffiti -- signed "SAMO". Other than a plaque nailed to

Banksy work comes top of poll of UK's favourite artworks

A graffiti work of a girl losing a heart-shaped balloon by notorious artist Banksy is Britain's favourite artwork, according to a poll out Wednesday. The "Balloon Girl" stencil painting, which appeared on the side of shop in east London in 2002, topped the shortlist of best British artworks, as voted on by 2,000 people. The artwork was removed and sold in 2014 for around £500,000 (560,000 euros, $651,000). John Constable's 1821 pastoral landscape "The Hay Wain" came in second, with Jack Vettriano's 1992 painting "The Singing Butler" coming in third. JMW Turner's 1839 "The Fighting Temeraire," which depicts a boat being tugged along the Thames, came fourth in the poll, conducted for Samsung TV, while Antony Gormley's 1998 sculpture "The Angel Of The North", which looms over a major road to the south of Newcastle, was voted fifth. Three album covers were in the top 20, including Peter Blake's cover

Major exhibition of works by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec on view at AMO-Palazzo Forti

Paris, end of the 19th century; la vie bohémienne, the artists of Montmartre, the Moulin Rouge, the brothels, the theatres and the prostitutes. This was the life Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901) led and depicted, becoming its most famous exponent. Toulouse-Lautrec was only 4 feet 8 inches tall – he had a form of dwarfism – and died at the age of 36 from the ravages of syphilis and alcoholism, but he became famous, above all, for his advertising posters and portraits of personalities of the day. His images of the dancers at the Moulin Rouge, Aristide Bruant and the scantily-clad prostitutes in the maisons closes, where he had his atelier, are fixed in the collective imagination. This major exhibition is on view until 3 September at AMO-Palazzo Forti celebrates Toulouse-Lautrec's artistic trajectory with 170 works from the Herakleidon Museum in Athens. Posters, lithographs, drawings, illustrations, watercolours, as well as videos, and photographs and furnishings o

Quirky US-French museum to offer night on Orient Express

Visitors to a quirky rail museum in France's Burgundy region, the brainchild of US entrepreneur Gregory Marshall, will have a new opportunity to spend a night on the legendary Orient Express. Two carriages and a locomotive from the line created in 1883 to carry the well-heeled from Paris to Constantinople, as Istanbul was then called, are the jewel of Marshall's growing collection of steam trains for a hotel-cum-museum he hopes to open next year. The Orient Express stopped serving Istanbul in 1977 when the service was shortened and the fabled train made its last journey in December 2009. Dating
