Everyone Who Ignored Trump’s Requests To Do Something Obstruction-esque

As special counsel Robert Mueller himself said, President Trump may have been more successful in influencing the Russia investigation had his aides been more willing to go along with his requests. As we go through the report, we’re keeping a running list of all the people who had to ignore or rebuff a request from Trump to do something to meddle in the investigation: Chris Christie:  After former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn’s resignation, Trump dined with former Gov.

‘Black Panther’ Star Letitia Wright Books a Trip With ‘Orient Express’ Sequel ‘Death on the Nile’

With Murder on the Orient Express, director and actor Kenneth Branagh loaded the cast with famous faces and impressive actors, all in the name of bringing Agatha Christie’s mystery to life.

Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer and Jodie Comer already have parts, and now Black Panther breakout Letitia Wright has climbed aboard the Death on the Nile cast as well. Wright will play one of the suspects Branagh’s Hercule Poirot is i...

Juiciest New Details About Trump’s Private Freakouts Over The Russia Probe

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s redacted report paints vivid behind-the-scenes pictures of President Trump’s private fury about the Russia investigation.

The Improbable Story Of The Guy Who Bought A $1k Painting Over The Internet And Sold It As A Leonardo Worth $500M

Today, of course, the contents of Lot 664 are worth far more than that: The picture has since sold once for $127.5 million and again, in a record-setting auction at Christie’s, for close to half a billion dollars. It has been held up as the “male Mona Lisa” and the “Holy Grail of old-master paintings” and derided by this magazine’s art critic, Jerry Saltz, as a “two-dimensional ersatz dashboard Jesus.”  – New York Magazine

The Answer To Distraction? Slow Art

There’s Slow Food. There’s Slow (Longform) Journalism. Now there’s Slow Art. To get people in the mood for slow art, Christie’s, the V&A and the Natural History Museum have been offering yoga and sound meditation baths before visitors step foot into their exhibitions. But rather than putting them in a trance, it’s all about switching on their senses. – BBC

How Christie’s retiring Jack Kline made digital movie projection an actual reality

Like it has most 21st Century endeavors, digital technology has fundamentally altered the movie business. Photochemical film, which was the basic stuff of movies for more than the first 100 years of production and exhibition, has all but disappeared from sets and editing rooms. Just as significantly, though, movies are now shown digitally in some 160,000 theaters around the world, delivered to projection booths on compact file folders called Digital Cinema Packages instead of in bulky, heavy can...

That Caravaggio Found In The Attic Is Being Handled With Unusual Honesty

There has been plenty of disagreement about whether the painting of Judith beheading Holofernes that turned up in Toulouse in 2016 is an original Caravaggio or a copy. But the people selling it are doing the right things: allowing every scholar that wants examine it access, being generous with shows to the public, and leaving the sale to the auctioneer that found it rather than passing it to Sotheby’s or Christie’s. If only this sort of behavior weren’t so rare. – Apollo

The Benioffs, who own land in Hawaii, donated the carving to Bishop Museum in Honolulu, where they felt it belongs.
