Art News:
Miró, Joan (1893-1983) on his 85th Birthday... In numerous interviews dating from the 1930s onwards, Miró expressed contempt for conventional painting methods as a way of supporting bourgeois society, and famously declared an "assassination of painting" in favour of upsetting the visual elements of established painting. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joan_Mir%C3%B3
'Renoir' painting appears at Virginia flea market. A possible Renoir, Pierre Auguste painting, worth up to $100,000, has been found at a Virginia Flea market, and is set to be auctioned.
New York: New York galleries are coming to London this autumn because wealthy collectors from Russia, India or the Middle East prefer to be in London, writes Colin Gleadell. By Colin Gleadell Telegraph Media Group Limited
Should Government Fund The Arts? This week a debate at The Economist: "It is not the cost of funding that is the problem, but the cost to the arts themselves of government intervention. There is no 'right' form of art. The arts market is well-functioning--people tend to get what they want. That what they want is not what the elite want is a problem for the elite, not the people." The Economist 08/27/12
Creators continue to rely on the kindness of strangers. New works may spring unassisted from a creator's pen; often, though, they are ushered on stage via powerful and persuasive backers. The state, church and aristocracy have long had a hand in the creation of culture. In our time, commissions also come from private individuals -- or groups, such as the Silo Collective -- as well as from institutions and charitable foundations. By: Matthew Westwood The Australian
Berlin - Row over Berlin’s Old Master plan. Critics fear bulk of collection will languish in store, with gems in Bode Museum. German art historians, conservators and newspapers united to criticise plans to empty the Gemäldegalerie of its Old Masters for the sake of Modern art. By Julia Michalska. Museums, Issue 238, September 2012
A metal casting of a 504-year-old Leonardo da Vinci beeswax sculpture was unveiled to the world in a ceremony on Monday in Los Angeles. "Horse and Rider" is the only known three-dimensional piece of art created by Leonardo to still exist in the world and one of only about two dozen authenticated Leonardo works in the world today...
