Rubens And His Legacy: Van Dyck To Cezanne at Royal Academy Of ArtsAdd to Google Calendar Peter Paul Rubens was a Flemish Baroque painter who emphasized movement, color and sensuality in his paintings. He was well educated and well traveled. Serving as an ambassador and diplomat at several points during his life, in addition to running a workshop in Antwerp, managing his apprentices. Traveling to Venice in 1600 he studied the work of Titan, Veronese and Tintoretto and then settled in the city of Mantua. These three artists had a profound influence on his work, especially Titian in his later years. Producing paintings for royalty and collectors throughout Europe during the first half of the 1600’s, his most well known portraits, landscapes, mythological scenes and allegorical subject matter are just as influential today as they were at the time he painted them. Throughout Ruben’s life he traveled from his birthplace in Antwerp to Italy, France and back again. His status as a diplomat dictated much of his travel and had him mingling in the highest courts of France, Spain and the Netherlands. http://www.visitlondon.com/things-to-do/event/39989471-rubens-and-his-legacy-van-dyck-to-cezanne-at-royal-academy-of-arts If your visiting London near the beginning of April, visit the Royal Academy Of Art to view the works of Peter Paul Rubens and those he directly influenced.

Aesthetics of ArtAdd to Google Calendar Is beauty really just in the eye of the beholder, or is there more to it than that? And what, if anything, is the connection between art and beauty? Is there such a thing as ugly art? If so, is beautiful art more valuable than ugly art? This presentation is part of Marcia Eaton's Aesthetics of Art lecture series.

Art Monaco July 2015Add to Google Calendar Claudia Hecht is the Featured Artist as the 2015 Art Monaco event this July 9-12. Learn more about her by continuing to read Fine Art magazine's review or her work or visit EmillionsArt.com online to view current works available for purchase. By VICTOR BENNETT FORBES Editor-in-Chief, Fine Art Magazine "In architecture and in art, few attempt and even fewer accomplish the transcendent; works that become iconic images that the people in the cities and countries in which they exist identify with and treasure as their own cultural heritage." GUADALAJARA. One of the most beautiful cities in the world, even the name speaks of music, art and dreams. “Plus,” says artist/resident Claudia Hecht, “the weather is fantastic and it is famous for beautiful women. You see them all over — in the streets, restaurants…everywhere.” Such pulchritude, while prevalent, is not restricted to the female form in Guadalajara. Art abounds in the city, the capital of Jalisco, which has been called the “Florence of Mexico.” Its rich artistic history dates back to the 17th century and began to take modern shape after the Mexican Revolution when the country was in turmoil in the 1920s. While born in Mexico City, the beauty that emanates from Claudia’s art is a poetic paean to her heritage and home where colorful and powerful murals grace the walls of many of Guadalajara’s public buildings. Beyond functioning as decoration, these murals depict the founding of modern Mexican identity, exploring the centuries-old struggle between indigenous and European factions. With elegance, delicacy and no shortage of internal combustion, Claudia Hecht—dedicated to tradition — continues and expands upon the paths carved by Mexico’s iconic heroes of creativity led by Jose Clemente Orozco whose works grace several locations in Guadalajara, including the Government Palace and the University of Guadalajara and the Hospicio Cabañas, the interior walls of which contain some of Orozco’s best work. Two hundred feet above the floor at the center of the nave in the buildings main chapel, a man wreathed in flames ascends into the cupola. This is Man of Fire, Orozco’s masterpiece. Diego Rivera, and David Alfaro Siquieros are the other components of “The Big Three.” Internationally acclaimed and winner of prestigious international awards, Claudia’s vibrant paintings and evocative sculptures combine themes from ancient Inca, Mayan and other primitive cultures with modern interpretation and materials. Her work evokes spiritual rituals from the legends of these civilizations presented in a contemporary style that captures the wonder of this mythology. Her impeccable designs and captivating imagery are awe-inspiring. Claudia began her career in 1988 creating Terracotta (baked earth) works in high relief under the training of sculptor Blanca Göens, completing a large collection of wood sculptures in cooperation with many of the renowned artists of Guadalajara. In 1993, she went on to study with Italian master artist Giulio D’Arolio with whom she delved deeply into the 18th century technique of relief painting on a gilded background in which gold and silver leaf are applied to surfaces and painted with oils and varnish. In these works, Claudia combines images inspired by archaeological, indigenous, mythological, oriental, tribal, exotic and modern elements. Embellishing the inital layers with engraved sculptures of wood and stone, Claudia transforms the mundane into new vibrant forms of expression in an artistic movement she christened “Pictorial Sculpture Art.” Few styles present such originality, as there are no planned sequences or inflexible rules. “I do make some basic sketches, but they have little in common with the final.” These works have evolved into an exploration of the infinite possibilities offered of interactivity designed into her new larger-than-life sculptures. These pieces are colorful and elegant and do not belong, she says, “to any existing school. Their intention is to be original, harmonious, beautiful and different.” Based on her love and appreciation of Mexican primitive art, these stainless steel sculptures evoke an organic sense of place, designed to blend into their surroundings, whether natural or man-made. They range in height from five to 18 feet or more and are created to be site specific, drawing on the artistic heritage of her homeland. “Interactive means people are invited into the works, to stand next to them with the building or beautiful scenery in the background so that a memory is made there.” Those designs caught the eye of Christina Cox who proffered on her The National Museum of Catholic Art and Library’s International Artist of the Year Award in 2014. Another of her major accomplishments was being accepted as one of the finalists for the World Trade Center Memorial Competition. Her 2003 design concept for the “Ground Zero Memorial” in New York City made it through the first three rounds of consideration. Of 3,000 artists entered, there were but 30 finalists with ten chosen for exhibition. “I love to work with architects,” said Claudia from a café in Guadalajara. “In creating the space for the World Trade Center, I designed a place of introspection, where people could come and quietly think about those they lost in that tragedy. I designed an entrance with symbols representing the religions of the world. The doors would open only one day a year for people to come in and communicate…an annual pilgrimage as a way of remembering those who were lost and to have some kind of a dialogue with those souls.” Another of Claudia’s major accomplishments is Feminalia 2000, a traveling exhibition that Claudia initiated and financed. “I was very conscious that there were not many opportunities to support feminine art in Mexico so I decided to make a foundation to promote female artists. I started looking at different artists with positive attitudes who would be good ambassadors for Mexico and Mexican culture. All the artists were from my state, either born or living in Guadalajara.” The well-received exhibition opened in Rome in 2000, and traveled to Washington, DC where it was shown at the Mexican Consulate, before heading home to Guadalajara. “We had a lot of support from the Mexican Embassy and created a major catalog. In Italy, radio and television was extremely supportive and while I was there, the Director of the Fine Art Academy of Rome invited me to stay on and study. I trained in Ravena, Italy for mosaic art, and refined my painting techniques in Rome.” Claudia returned to Mexico two years later, met her future husband, David Newren at an Artexpo and married in 2004. Currently, Claudia is in the midst of completing a commission for the stunning new cultural facility Palcco in Guadalajara where, in addition to an interactive stainless steel installation of larger-than-life sculptures that rise from a garden at the entrance, she is also producing a granite medallion (Medallon Rojo, picturedbelow) to be embedded in the floor of the grand rotunda, and a 10’ x 50’ mural. Her hope is that this is the first of many future installations to be placed in prominent places around the world where they will become part of the identity of the city in which they are placed. Each of Claudia’s works have what she calls “a back story” with historical, philosophical or spiritual truths behind each. Personal tragedy, triumph and awakening are her major themes, executed in such a way that they become, as she states, “Harmonious and happy resulting in a much more fulfilling experience. Not all my art is colorful. Some are somber, but all are elegant. I don’t paint with a purpose of making people understand a particular message. Rather, the creation talks to me and tells me what it wants. The outcome is very much related to my emotional space at that moment.” Claudia’s “emotional spaces” resonate equally with collectors and the general public. For many, they become a source of inspiration — treasured masterpieces that combine beauty, distinctiveness of design and purity of form with unique materials and unparallelled creativity. The result is in-depth communication — powerful and original — which is the basis of the interaction she seeks. They crystallize Mexico’s artistic and cultural values and are technically brilliant above reproach — works of a modern master, magnificently expressed. Christina Cox, Director of the National Museum of Catholic Art and Library, concurs. “Our museum art committee chose Claudia Hecht’s mixed media sculpture Our Lady of Guadalupe for the 2014 NMCAL International Award. Our Lady of Guadalupe is the “Patroness of the Americas” who appeared to Juan Diego in Mexico in 1531. Claudia painted a magnificent royal blue color with golden stars on the Our Lady’s sacred cape. The wooden rays of the sun standing in back of her are beautiful and striking. The Our Lady is sweet and strong with her delicate hands in prayer. The fit for a Virgin’s golden crown is one fit for a Queen of the Heavens and Earth. At the base we see an Angel guarding Our Lady wearing a gold armor breast plate. This is truly one of the most beautiful sculptures we have ever seen.” ©FINE ART MAGAZINE, 2015 • USED BY PERMISSION Emillions Art is representing Claudia at the 2015 Art Monaco and Art Ibiza events.

European Masterworks From The Permanent CollectionAdd to Google Calendar European Modernism masterpieces are on view in the Museum of Art's permanent collection galleries. Included are artworks by Kandinsky, Mondrian, Picasso, Dali, and many others. In the early 1950s Harris K. Prior, the Museum of Art Director, and Edward Root, Consultant in Art, developed for the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute Museum of Art a small, distinguished collection of paintings and sculptures that were created by pioneers of major 20th-century artistic movements, such as Cubism, Futurism, and Surrealism. The Museum was founded as a collection of art from the United States, but Prior and Root believed that assembling a group of modern European art would be beneficial to demonstrate the influence of Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and other Europeans on American artists. Edward Root explained to the Board of Trustees, “This ought to give a kind of context to the collection, since it was in Europe that the rather strange developments of this century were initiated.” Since the Prior and Root era, the Museum collected additional pieces that strengthen European-American connections. Prior, Root and subsequent Museum personnel were extremely judicious in their selections, so that the European Modernism collection represents each artist at the height of his powers.

Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to MatisseAdd to Google Calendar Using the work of Monet as a starting point, this landmark exhibition examines the role gardens played in the evolution of art from the early 1860s through to the 1920s. Trace the emergence of the modern garden in its many forms and glories as we take you through a period of great social change and innovation in the arts. Discover the paintings of some of the most important Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Avant-Garde artists of the early twentieth century as they explore this theme. Monet, arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, once said he owed his painting “to flowers”. But Monet was far from alone in his fascination with the horticultural world, which is why we will also be bringing you masterpieces by Renoir, Cezanne, Pissarro, Manet, Sargent, Kandinsky, Van Gogh, Matisse, Klimt and Klee. For these artists and others, the garden gave them the freedom to break new ground and explore the ever-changing world around them. Highlights include a remarkable selection of works by Monet, including the monumental Agapanthus Triptych, reunited specifically for the exhibition, Renoir’s Monet Painting in His Garden at Argenteuil and Kandinsky’s Murnau The Garden II. As our galleries are bathed in the colour and light of more than 120 works, see the garden in art with fresh eyes. Exhibition co-organised by the Royal Academy of Arts and the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Picasso. SculpturesAdd to Google Calendar The upcoming exhibit “Picasso. Sculptures,” which will show at Musée national Picasso-Paris from March 8th to September 18 2016, aims to examine an understudied aspect of Picasso’s sculptural works. This aspect is the diversity of dimensions of the artist’s sculptural work constructed through his series and variations, cast iron creations, prints, and photographic enlargements, realized in a selection of his original sculptures. The exhibition attempts to reunite notable series from the work of Picasso like the Verres d’absinthe (1914) series or the original group of wood Baigneurs (1956). These series of sculpture will be presented with the cast iron creations already at Musée national Picasso-Paris. However, the exhibition will provide a new look at these cast iron creations by systematically presenting them with their “double” or “variants.” A catalogue will accompany the exhibition, following the circulation of the sculptures by their reproduction, their exhibitions or photographs, press, or art reviews.

Botticelli ReimaginedAdd to Google Calendar A celebration of Botticelli's incredible influence across the arts. master of the Italian Renaissance, Sandro Botticelli was also one of the most esteemed artists of his time: as well as producing grand altarpieces and mythological paintings, he was summoned by Pope Sixtus IV to create a series of frescoes for the Sistine Chapel. Yet after his death his accomplishments were disregarded and he disappeared from public consciousness for more than 300 years. It wasn't until his work was included in an exhibition in Manchester in 1857 – where it was viewed by more than a million people – that interest in the artist was renewed. It was the Pre-Raphaelites favour in particular, that was key to bringing Botticelli back into the spotlight. This largest British exhibition devoted to the artist since 1930, this show charts the Botticelli story from obscurity to ubiquity. Bringing together his masterpieces with paintings, photography and film made in homage to his work over the past 500 years, the display includes pieces by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris, David LaChapelle, Elsa Schiaparelli, Andy Warhol and Cindy Sherman.

Vermeer & the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration & RivalryAdd to Google Calendar The National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin is organising a landmark exhibition, Vermeer and the Masters of Genre Painting: Inspiration and Rivalry, in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre, Paris, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington. The exhibition will explore the fascinating network of relationships between Johannes Vermeer and Dutch genre painters of the period 1650–1675. Dutch genre paintings of the period 1650–1675 rank among the pinnacles of Western European art. While Johannes Vermeer is currently the most renowned painter of such scenes, the Delft master was only one of many artists of the period who excelled in capturing everyday surroundings in exquisite detail. Other major genre painters included Gerrit Dou, Gerard ter Borch, Jan Steen, Pieter de Hooch, Gabriel Metsu and Frans van Mieris. These artists frequently drew inspiration from each other’s paintings and then tried to surpass each other in verisimilitude, technical prowess and aesthetic appeal. This vibrant artistic rivalry contributed to the exceptionally high quality of their combined oeuvre. Vermeer’s subjects, compositions and figure types owe much to works by artists from other Dutch cities. For example, his depictions of a young woman reading a letter in a moment of quiet contemplation derives from the work of Ter Borch, the Deventer artist whose pictorial innovations and psychological insights had a profound impact on his contemporaries. Vermeer also freely borrowed from artists from Dordrecht, Leiden and Amsterdam. In turn, genre painters from outside Delft adopted stylistic and thematic elements from his work to elevate their own compositions. Thus, rather than presenting Vermeer as an enigmatic artist working in isolation, the aim of this exhibition is to highlight his relationships with his contemporaries. This exhibition invites visitors to take on the role of seventeenth-century art lovers and compare small groups of paintings that reflect the cross-currents of inspiration. Visitors will also be able to observe that artists had individual ways of inserting, changing and disguising their borrowings. http://www.nationalgallery.ie/en/Exhibitions/Upcoming/Vermeer.aspx Venues & Dates 20 February - 22 May 2017 Musée du Louvre, Paris 17 June - 17 September 2017 National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin 22 October 2017 - 21 January 2018 National Gallery of Art, Washington DC

Volta 12Add to Google Calendar VOLTA, the renowned art fair for new international positions, debuted in Basel in 2005 as a collaboration between dealers and friends. The aim was to secure a platform for international galleries beyond young art stalwart Liste and market heavyweight Art Basel. Concerns and aspirations of the exhibiting gallerists have been first and foremost since VOLTA's inception; in combination with the curatorial mind of Artistic Director Amanda Coulson, eclectic and dynamic presentations with a strong focus on solo presentations find a stage as refined as at the main fair. VOLTA has already created a brand known and respected for its strict selection of exhibiting galleries and artists, including a growing list of alumni who have graduated to the main fairs. Former exhibitors like A Gentil Carioca (Rio de Janeiro), STEVENSON (Cape Town / Johannesburg), One and J. Gallery (Seoul) and bitforms gallery (New York) ascended to Frieze and Art Basel after exhibiting at VOLTA. Likewise, artists including Theaster Gates, Chris Johanson, Zilvinas Kempinas, Cameron Platter, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, and Adrian Williams have shown in prestigious events like the Venice Biennale, the Orangerie (Paris), dOCUMENTA, Art Basel's Art Parcours and Art Unlimited, following their featured showings at VOLTA. Encouraged by the response of collectors and institutional representatives to the fair's solo presentations and curated booths, VOLTA will continue to highlight single-artist projects and dynamic configurations of two or three artists in dialogue as the backbone to its program. In doing so, VOLTA returns the focus of the art fair atmosphere back to its most crucial component: the artists and their works. With the move back to the airy splendor of Basel's landmark venue Markthalle, situated in a key central location in the city, VOLTA confirmed its position as a mature player in Basel’s art week and elevates its exhibitors’ respective platforms for an experience mutually beneficial to fair visitors and the galleries alike. Showcasing the highest calibre of new art bearing salient contemporary positions within an elegant environment: this is VOLTA's mission. VOLTA was co-founded by three dealers, Kavi Gupta, Friedrich Loock and Uli Voges, and art critic Amanda Coulson in 2005. In addition to the VOLTA fairs, the MMPI family of art and design fairs include The Armory Show and Architectural Digest Home Design Show.

Abstract Expressionism, London's Critics ChoiceAdd to Google Calendar Autumn 2016 at the RA (Royal Academy of Arts) is all about New York in the 1940s and ’50s, as this blockbuster survey of abstract expressionism brings together the big deals, bad boys and prodigious boozers of the era. It’s sure to be a swaggeringly audacious show. Abstract expressionism, with its love of spontaneity, automatic and unconscious forms, marks the moment when America took over from Paris as the crucible of modern art (whether or not you believe the theories about CIA involvement in its post-war rise to prominence). Indeed, its first flowering was full by artists who came to the States from Europe – painter Hans Hofmann was born in Germany; Willem de Kooning trained in the Netherlands. However, it’s the homegrown US talent that came to embody the new sense of assurance and freedom that ab-ex still signifies today – the dynamic ‘action painting’ (a term coined by critic Harold Rosenberg in 1952) of Franz Kline and ‘Jack the Dripper’ Jackson Pollock, and the sublime ‘colour field’ painting (Clement Greenberg’s baby) of Barnett Newman and Mark Rothko.

Agnes Martin - GuggenheimAdd to Google Calendar Filling the Guggenheim rotunda, this exhibition will trace Agnes Martin’s (1912–2004) career from her early experiments of the 1950s through her mature oeuvre and final paintings, making it the first comprehensive survey of the artist’s work since her death in 2004. One of the preeminent American painters of the twentieth century, Martin created subtle and evocative canvases that had a significant influence on artists of her time and subsequent generations. For more than four decades, she explored limited compositional motifs yet discovered endless nuance and variation. By 1960, she had developed her signature grid-pattern works—radical presentations of interlocking horizontal and vertical lines in pencil on large square canvases that at first seem to appear blank. Martin’s geometry, however, is never mechanical. Her hand-drawn arrangements of coordinates, lines, and stripes shift in scale and rhythm between works. Often associated with and considered an important figure of Minimalism, Martin’s work stands apart. Influenced by Asian belief systems including Taoism and Zen Buddhism and the natural surroundings of her home in New Mexico, her restrained style was underpinned by a personal conviction in the emotive and expressive power of art. The Guggenheim presentation of Agnes Martin is co-curated by Tracey Bashkoff, Senior Curator, Collections and Exhibitions and Tiffany Bell, Guest Curator. Venue name: Solomon R.

A Swede in Paris in the 18th century - The Tessin CollectionAdd to Google Calendar Although not officially bearing the title, Count Carl Gustaf Tessin acted as Swedish ambassador in Paris from 1739 to 1741. A passionate collector of paintings and drawings during those three years, he became a friend of Pierre-Jean Mariette and acquired works at the remarkable Crozat sale in 1741. Heavily in debt on his return to Sweden, he was obliged to sell part of his collection of paintings to King Frederick I, who gave them to Queen Louisa Ulrika. In 1750 the count also had to part with his collection of drawings, which was acquired by Crown Prince Adolf Frederick. Organized in tandem with the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm, now home to the greater part of Tessin’s collection, the exhibition takes a combined chronological and thematic approach to his modus operandi. In doing so, it also provides an insight into the art market and Parisian taste in the mid-18th century. http://www.louvre.fr/en/expositions/swede-paris-18th-centurythe-tessin-collection From October 20, 2016 to January 16, 2017 Location Rotonde Sully Admission €15 (permanent collections + exhibitions) Opening hours Every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., except Tuesday.
