Palm Beach Modern unveils works of art included in Thanksgiving weekend auction

Two days after America celebrates Thanksgiving in traditional style, Palm Beach Modern Auctions will add to the holiday spirit with its own bounteous feast of modern and contemporary art at a Saturday, November 24 auction. In addition to offering guests rare and impeccably documented works by the most sought-after names in design, co-owners Rico Baca and Wade Terwilliger will host a catered, fall-themed buffet lunch. “No leftover turkey -- we promise!” Baca said. There will also be complimentary valet parking, snacks and drinks throughout the day, and chair massages starting at 4 p.m. As guests settle in, they will see “one of the most beautiful ‘shows’ in the art and design world,” said Baca. “Every one of our auctions is a carefully planned production, with every piece selected for its quality and market relevance, then carefully curated and researched.” Picasso, Miro, Koons, Wesselman

MKG arranges restitution of a marble panel from Afghanistan

The Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg is arranging to return an Afghan marble wall panel it purchased in good faith at a Paris auction in 2013. The panel belonged to a 78-part frieze dating to the twelfth century that once adorned the inner courtyard of the Royal Palace of Sultan Mas’ud III in the town of Ghazni, Afghanistan. At the time it was purchased, very little reliable information was available on the panel’s provenance that would have put a damper on the enthusiasm for the aesthetic quality of this work of art. Although it has still not been possible to trace with certainty when and how the panel came onto the international art market, there is no doubt that it meets the criteria for looted art. The MKG has therefore been working since 2014 on the restitution of the panel, assisted by Germany’s cultural property authority (Kulturgutschutz Deutschland) and the German Foreign Office. In the summer of 2

Easter Island begs British Museum for statue return

The governor of Easter Island on Tuesday tearfully begged the British Museum to return one of its famous statues, saying: "Give us a chance so he can come back". The London museum has held the Hoa Hakananai'a, one of the most spiritually important of the Chilean island's stone monoliths, for 150 years. "My grandma, who passed away at almost 90 years, she never got the chance to see her ancestor," said governor Tarita Alarcon Rapu after meeting officials from the British Museum, accompanied by Felipe Ward, Chile's national assets minister. "I am almost half a century alive and this is my first time," she added. The statue, or "moai", is one of hundreds originally found on the island. Carved by Polynesian colonisers, each of the big-headed figures was considered to represent tribal leaders or deified ancestors. It was an emotional moment for the

Bangladesh photographer freed after months in detention

Award-winning Bangladeshi photographer and activist Shahidul Alam was released from prison Tuesday after more than 100 days behind bars, in a closely watched freedom of speech case. The 63-year-old Alam was arrested on August 5 for making "false" and "provocative" statements on Al Jazeera television and Facebook during student protests. He was freed from Dhaka's main jail Tuesday after being granted bail last week. Alam told AFP he hoped his release would "signal freedom for many others" also detained during the massive student demonstrations. "It is a fantastic feeling to be free in a free country, breathing free air. But I hope for freedom for everyone else," he said. He was held under controversial internet laws which critics say have been wielded by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to stifle dissent and harass journalists. Alam spoke briefly to reporters after he came out of prison to describe conditions

Croatia wonders who is selling 'cherished' 1998 World Cup medal

Croatia was abuzz on Tuesday with speculation over the identity of an unnamed World Cup bronze medal winner from 1998 who was auctioning the precious memento. Croatia's third place 20 years ago was the country's historic first success as an independent football nation, although they went one step better last July by reaching the final before losing to France. "There were only 30 copies of this medal. Absolutely rare, extra fine," says the description of the item at The Saleroom auction web portal. Auctioneer Agon Sports World estimated the price at 7,500 euros ($8,570) and the auction is set for December 7 and 8. "I don't believe that some of my players would put it on sale since they are all well-off," the team's 1998 coach Miroslav 'Ciro' Blazevic said. "Maybe it was stolen," the 83-year-old told the Vecernji List daily paper. "It will certainly not stay anonymous, such things are always revealed," he added.
