"Japanese Artist Has Drawn Every Meal He’s Eaten for 32 Years: Behold the Delicious Illustrations of Itsuo Kobayashi"

Image and text from Open Culture, 3/24/2020. Since the 1980s, Itsuo Kobayashi has drawn a picture of every single meal he eats. However notable we find this practice now, it would surely have struck us as downright eccentric back then. Kobayashi began drawing his food before the arrival of inexpensive digital cameras and cellphones, and well before the smartphone combined the two into the single package we now keep close at hand. We all know people who take camera-phone pictures of their meals...

My Pal Inigo Philbrick, The Bernie Madoff Of The Art World

“When I first met Inigo Philbrick in 2012, he was all of 25, looked an awful lot like Justin Timberlake, and … I was immediately smitten, professionally and personally; Philbrick was sharp, fun, and funny. … And for a long time, I thought that was one of the most fortunate days of my life.” Dealer-collector-curator-Artnet columnist Kenny Schachter, for whom Philbrick made and then lost a few million dollars, writes about watching his best bud run amok, run aground, and run away. – New York Maga...

How The Art World Morphed Into The Art Industry

Consider that, in 1988, the Artnet Price Database tracked only 18 auction houses and about 8,300 artists. Over the next 24 years, those figures skyrocketed: By 2012, there were 632 auction houses and 90,275 artists. But, like any mature industry, it is now entering a period of consolidation after decades of expansion. Last year, Artnet recorded only 534 houses (a drop of around 16 percent from the high-water mark) and 71,621 artists (down 25 percent from the peak). Still, the scale and co...

Famous Drawings by Leonardo da Vinci Celebrated in a New Series of Stamps

No special occasion is required to celebrate Leonardo da Vinci, but the fact that he died in 1519 makes this year a particularly suitable time to look back at his vast, innovative, and influential body of work. Just last month, "Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing" opened in twelve museums across the United Kingdom. "144 of Leonardo da Vinci’s greatest drawings in the Royal Collection are displayed in 12 simultaneous exhibitions across the UK," says the exhibition's site, with each venue's dra...

‘Salvator Mundi’ And The Mueller Probe And Russian Collusion? Really??

The Narativ article about the $450 million Leonardo painting and its possible connections with Special Council Robert Mueller’s investigation has gotten a lot of attention this week. It’s all too much for Artnet national art critic Ben Davis, who weighs in with an attempt at debunking. — Artnet

Rembrandt’s Masterpiece, The Night Watch, Will Get Restored and You Can Watch It Happen Live, Online

Many of the world's most admired paintings don't look the same now as when the artists completed them. Time, especially when it adds up to centuries and centuries, takes its toll on paints and the canvases to which they're applied, or at least it changes them in ways humanity hasn't predicted or fully understood. Take Rembrandt's 1642 Militia Company of District II under the Command of Captain Frans Banninck Cocq, much better known as The Night Watch — but only because a layer of varnish...

This light sculpture plays like an instrument, escaped from Tron

Espills is a “solid light dynamic sculpture,” made of laser beams, laser scanners, and robotic mirrors. And it makes a real-life effect that would make Tron proud. The work, made public this month but part of ongoing research, is the creation of multidisciplinary Barcelona-based AV team Playmodes. And while large-scale laser projects are becoming more frequent in audiovisual performance and installation, this one is unique both in that it’s especially expressive and a heavily DIY project. S...

George Orwell Reviews Salvador Dali’s Autobiography: “Dali is a Good Draughtsman and a Disgusting Human Being” (1944)

Images or Orwell and Dali via Wikimedia Commons Should we hold artists to the same standards of human decency that we expect of everyone else? Should talented people be exempt from ordinary morality? Should artists of questionable character have their work consigned to the trash along with their personal reputations? These questions, for all their timeliness in the present, seemed no less thorny and compelling 74 years ago when George Orwell confronted the strange case of Salvador Dali, an unde...

From drugs den to creative space: A Peckham car park has been turned into a trendy hipster hangout

Peckham Levels is home to restaurants, bars, artist studios, and a space where people can listen to talks and watch performances. It's built in the car park building around Frank's Cafe and the Peckhamplex cinema. The developers of Peckham Levels also set up container park Pop Brixton, which is proving to be very popular. Above the reasonably priced Peckhamplex cinema (£5 a ticket!) in Peckham, London, is an old Sainsbury's car park that's been given a new lease of life. The car park — w...

2,000+ Impressionist, Post-impressionist & Early Modern Paintings Now Free Online, Thanks to the Barnes Foundation

Georges Seurat, Henri Rousseau, Giorgio de Chirico, Auguste Renoir, Vincent Van Gogh — all of us associate these names with great innovations in painting, but how many of us have had the opportunity to look long and close enough at their work to understand those innovations? To feel them, in other words, rather than just to know about them? The Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia has just recently made it possible for us to contemplate thousands of works of art including those of Impressionist, P...

25 Million Images From 14 Art Institutions to Be Digitized & Put Online In One Huge Scholarly Archive

Digital art archives, says Thomas Gaehtgens, director of the Getty Research Institute, are “Sleeping Beauties, and they are waiting to be discovered and kissed.” It’s an odd metaphor, especially since the archive to which Gaehtgens refers currently contains photographic treasures like that of Medieval Christian art from the Netherlands Institute for Art History. But soon, Pharos, the “International Consortium of Photo Archives,” will host 25 million images, Ted Loos reports at The New York Time...

Random Excellence: Ruth Orkin

Ruth Orkin, Couple in MG, Florence, 1951 Of course there's no one standard of the "excellent" in photography. In aesthetic appreciation there is general rough agreement but also a wide range of opinion. And no sort of unanimity. We all like what we like. I'm reminded of the late comedian Mitch Hedberg talking about the heavy metal band he and his friends had when they were teenagers: "People either loved us or they hated us. Or they thought we were OK." I laughed as soon as I saw this. In the...

Archaeologists Discover the World’s First “Art Studio” Created in an Ethiopian Cave 43,000 Years Ago

Images via PLOS If you want to see where art began, go to a cave. Not just any cave, but not just one cave either. You'll find the best-known cave paintings at Lascaux, an area of southwestern France with a cave complex whose walls feature over 600 images of animals, humans, and symbols, all of them more than 17,000 years old, but other caves elsewhere in the world reveal other chapters of art's early history. Some of those chapters have only just come into legibility, as in the case of the cav...

He was 72 years old.  Jack Shainman, Hendricks’ gallery, released a statement confirming his death: “We have had the great honor of working with Barkley since 2005.
