Giacometti

A Gavel Falls…is the Pendulum of Art History Swinging Back?
An essay by Morris Shapiro
The art and financial worlds are all abuzz about the vigorous buying surge witnessed on the evening of February 3, 2010 at Sotheby’s London, when a bronze sculpture by Swiss modern master Alberto Giacometti fetched the highest price in art auction history. The Ancient Greeks believed that sculpture was the purest and highest art form. I suspect they (and Giacometti) knew something we didn’t, until now...

Detail of Agam's “Infinite Reach”
Yaacov Agam and the Mystical Number “9”
An essay by Morris Shapiro
I am often asked about the significance of the number “9" in Yaacov Agam’s art. As the son of an Orthodox Rabbi, Agam possesses a deep interest in Hebrew mysticism. The ancient Hebrews also believed that God’s “language” could be perceived in mathematics. As Agam considers his works of art to be “visual prayers” or creations which each reflect upon the metaphysical, he chooses to incorporate factors of 9 into each work to “resonate” this purpose...

A Celebration of
Henri Matisse
A Celebration of Henri Matisse: Master of Line and Light
TAMPA — An exceptional show featuring Fauvist master Henri Matisse is currently on view at the newly-opened Tampa Museum of Art. While many past exhibits focus on the bright, cheerful paintings of Matisse, A Celebration of Henri Matisse: Master of Line and Light is centered around the artist’s 50-year journey as a printmaker. The exhibition offers compelling evidence of the important role printmaking played in the evolution of Matisse’s visual ideas. On view until April 18, 2010 | Exhibit Details >>

Dali's "Flight of a Bee" Goes on Public Display
Salvador Dali's famous oil painting Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate One Minute Before Awakening (1944) is currently on loan to the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí from Madrid’s Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and can be viewed by the public in the Drawings Room (number 6) of the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres. The work was painted while Dalí and his wife Gala were living in America and incorporates much of the artist's distinctive symbolism. On view until May 3, 2010 | Exhibit Details >>


Fear and Folly: The Visionary Prints of Francisco Goya and Federico Castellon
Fear and Folly
KALAMAZOO — The Kalamazoo Institute of Arts presents, Fear and Folly: The Visionary Prints of Francisco Goya and Federico Castellon. Though separated by about 150 years, Francisco Goya (1746-1828) and Federico Castellon (1914-1971) often appear closer to one another than to their contemporaries, as they both turned their attention to the human condition. In this exhibition, the artists are represented by important print series: Castellon’s lithographs for Edgar Allen Poe’s The Masque of the Red Death and Goya’s etchings from Los Disparates (or The Proverbs).
On view until May 23, 2010 | Exhibit Details >>

Miro—I Work
Like a Gardener
Miro—I Work Like a Gardener
COPENHAGEN — It has been said that artist Joan Miró (1893-1983) regarded everything in the universe as alive and as part of a great interconnected totality. An innovative master of surrealism, Miró also saw himself as a gardener, his studio as a kitchen garden and his artworks as plants that he cultivated to grow under his expert care. The ARKEN Museum of Modern Art is celebrating the artist’s connection to nature with a new exhibit, Miró – I Work Like a Gardener. On view until May 30, 2010 | Exhibit Details >>
