WABAC Wednesday

As Mr. Peabody might say, let's step into the WABAC (or Wayback) machine... Here we go, all the way back to the year 2016. I was in New York City seeing the inside of the Guggenheim Museum for the first time. I went more to see the building than the art. Good thing, because most of the art was gone. They were preparing a new installation on the building's iconic spiral ramp. Black and white treatment inside the Guggenheim. My friend and I did get to see the art in the museum's "new" (1992) win...

Tracey Emin on her cancer: 'I will find love. I will have exhibitions. I will enjoy life'

As she recovers from a brutal summer of cancer treatment, Tracey Emin takes us round her new show – and imagines spending the next 30 years painting in her pyjamas to the sound of birdsong‘I am so lucky,” says Tracey Emin as we stand in the grand galleries of the Royal Academy. I can tell, from her brown eyes, that she’s smiling beneath her face mask.

Short Film: Acts of a Vampiric Nature

This is a 12-minute short that was directed by Tinofara Michael Hapaguti and released in 2015. There is a bit of an Edvard Munch theme to the short in that the painting Love and Pain, also known as Vampire, is used within the film but also that there is an opening narration (Adam Behr) that is a quote by Munch and I’ll reproduce in full: “From the moment of my birth, the angels of anxiety, worry, and death stood at my side, followed me out when I played, followed me in the sun of springtime and...

Botched Virgin Mary art restoration

Art restoration is a tricky and delicate business. Maintaining a piece’s aesthetic integrity, while also preserving its condition, is not a job for amateurs. This is exemplified by the recent failed restoration attempt of a painting by artist Bartolomé Esteban Murillo in Spain. The anonymous owner commissioned an amateur restorer to restore a copy of Murillo’s “The Immaculate Conception of Los Venerables,” which resulted in a misshapen Virgin Mary that looks more like the central character ...

The Expressionist World of Scent: Edvard Munch

There is an idea that artists need to suffer a bit to make great work. Another idea suggests that they burn brightly, and then expire far too early. Yet other artists live out very long and full lives, and although there are difficulties, their ups and downs become the fabric of their work. Norwegian painter Edvard Munch (surname pronounced “moonk”) is a perfect example of this last case, wher...

Experts Say Van Gogh Self-Portrait Is Genuine, Painted During Asylum Stay

(AMSTERDAM) — After years of doubts about its authenticity, experts in Amsterdam have confirmed that a Vincent van Gogh self-portrait was indeed painted by the Dutch master as he recovered in a French asylum from a mental breakdown. Van Gogh Museum researcher Louis van Tilborgh dispelled the doubts Monday, saying the oil-on-canvas painting of the anguished-looking painter was completed in the late summer of 1889 while Van Gogh was at the Saint-Remy asylum in southern France. Questions about...

Anne Frank’s Diary: The Graphic Novel Adaptation

The human imagination can be an extraordinary coping device in times of trouble, a tiny window providing mental escape from whatever cell fate has consigned us to. Diarist and aspiring professional writer Anne Frank, who died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at the age of 15, chafed at her now-universally-known confinement in the Secret Annex. She chafed at her mother’s authority and the seemingly effortless saintliness of her older sister. Documenting her daily physical and emoti...

The Life & Work of Edvard Munch, Explored by Patti Smith and Charlotte Gainsbourg

Look beyond the highly distressed genderless figure in the foreground of The Scream, one of the most famous painting in existence, and you'll find plenty of women. While its painter Edvard Munch was a man, as his name might suggest, the rest of his body of work featured not a few female bodies: 1895's Woman in Three Stages, 1896's Young Woman on the Beach, and in 1907's The Sick Child, a highly personal work by an artist whose mother and sister both died of tuberculosis. Or take 1895's M...

Angst, grief, pain: Europe in turmoil as extremists form new alliances | Simon Tisdall

A real menace looms as we fret about Brexit and Germany and France sign symbolic accordsIt could simply be a coincidence. Or perhaps the decision to exhibit Edvard Munch’s most famous work, The Scream, at the British Museum in April, closely following Britain’s scheduled 29 March exit from the EU, is an artful piece of deliberate subversion. Either way, the Norwegian painter’s celebrated depiction of extreme pain occasioned by high anxiety, mental instability, grief, loneliness and separation se...

New Digital Archive Will Feature the Complete Works of Egon Schiele: Start with 419 Paintings, Drawings & Sculptures

If you’ve ever mistaken an Egon Schiele for a Gustav Klimt, you can surely be forgiven—the Austrian modernist don served as a North Star for Schiele, who sought out Klimt, apprenticed himself, and received a great deal of encouragement from his elder. But he would soon strike out on his own, developing a grotesque, exaggerated, yet elegantly sensual style that shocked his contemporaries and made him a leading figure of Austrian Expressionism. Now, a century after his death in 1918 at age 28, a ...
