Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 29 maggio 2020

London – Christie’s programme of online-only sales continues to evolve with a further series of auctions that place an increased emphasis on the dialogue that exists between objects and artwork, artists and makers. Presented within engaging themes, each auction provides collectors with an opportunity to continue their exploration of the world through art and artefacts that transcend the limits of a category or a defined moment in history. These range from a sale that traces the development of portraiture as a genre to a survey of art that transports the viewer to a different time and place.An online selling exhibition titled Art to Wear will provide insight into artists who have created jewellery – portable artworks that adorn the body of the wearer [now live until 10 June]. Out of Office: Art That Transports [now live until 10 June] provides a selection of work to transcend the viewer from the current home environment, awakening a sense of the exotic. Get Art!

Face Time: People in Art through the Ages [2-23 June 2020] will offer examples of portraiture from the 1st century AD to the first half of the 20th Century, tracing the development of the genre by looking at the paintings and sculptures not only as a recording of the sitter but as a sociological observation. Art from the Kiln: Ceramics Across the Centuries [3-24 June] will demonstrate the vitality of the medium, offering a global perspective of how it developed from 500 BC to 2020.
Inspired by Nature – Fine and Decorative Arts [3-19 June] offers a poetic journey dedicated to the natural world.Modern Works on Paper and Prints [15 June–1 July] will unite the works on paper and print mediums, showcasing the breadth of artistic styles of Modern Masters from the 1880s to the 1960s.

Dialogues: Modern and Contemporary Art [26 June–14 July] will draw together a group of work that reflects the ongoing dialogue between contemporary artists and their predecessors. The auction will focus on artistic responses to periods of radical change across generation and geography.
Let There Be Light [24 June–14 July] will offer a selection of art and objects that bring light into the home, whether practically or poetically. Eureka! Scientific Breakthroughs of the 20th Century [24 June–16 July 2020] will present a journey through the scientific and technological breakthroughs that have formed the modern world, and the brilliant minds that lay behind them, including Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, among others.

Harold Lloyd’s Historic Rogues Gallery To Be Auctioned On Friday, September 23rd

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 18 settembre 2016

juliens-auctionsjuliens-auctions1juliens-auctions4Los Angeles, California Harold Lloyd’s Rogues Gallery — on Friday, September 23, 2016 in Los Angeles presents Julien’s Auctions, the world-record breaking auction house to the stars, will present one of the world’s most extraordinary collections of autographed Hollywood photographs. The collection features nearly 200 rare, signed photographs from Hollywood’s Golden Era. The auction will take place at the highly-anticipated Icons & Idols: Hollywood auction event that weekend at Julien’s Auction Gallery in Los Angeles.The Rogues Gallery Autograph Collection is the most extensive and unique autograph collection amassed by the silent film star Harold Lloyd and is comprised of the most significant figures of Hollywood’s “Golden Age.” This one-of-a-kind collection is a time capsule of Hollywood, Americana and the politics of the day.Marlene Dietrich“The King of Daredevil Comedy,” Harold Lloyd is best remembered today as the young man dangling desperately from a clock tower in the 1923 classic, “Safety Last.” At the height of his career, Lloyd was one of the  most popular and highest-paid stars of his time. He made more films than his contemporaries Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton combined.Mae WestWith hits like his 1922 film “Grandma’s Boy,” Lloyd became a strong force in bringing about the advent of the “feature-length” film. Harold Lloyd’s acting career rose to prominence during the silent film era and spanned 34 years of active filmmaking, over 200 comedies and one 1928 Academy Award nomination. He was the recipient of the Academy Award for Master Comedian and Good Citizen in 1952, two George Eastman Awards in 1955 and 1957 and the Cannes Film Festival Award in 1962. During his long and illustrious career, Lloyd had dealings with remarkable actors and public figures, placing him in a very unique position to amass such a rare collection which he delighted in showing to visitors of his famed residence. This marks the first time this collection is being publicly offered.Errol FlynnJust as remarkable as the collection is the story on how it all came together in the 1930s. When Harold and his wife Mildred moved into their magnificent Beverly Hills estate “Greenacres” in 1929, one would not have imagined such a collection would become such a prominent place in their home. The house, which would later be named to the National juliens-auctions2juliens-auctions3Register of Historic Places, had been designed with a tunnel that led from the main house, under the formal lawn, to a game room and bar area. Harold had originally planned to install a bowling alley but Mildred had other ideas … most importantly how “not” to install a bowling alley.
PhotoAs a Christmas gift in 1937, Mildred and her close friend, actress Marion Davies, invited friends of Harold to send him a singular gift — their favorite portrait of themselves. Hundreds of Harold’s friends came through, resulting in a collection of Hollywood’s legendary stars and iconic actors all seen through the lens. From film luminaries to sports heroes to United States presidents, each portrait was then displayed in this underground corridor, and The Rogues Gallery was born. juliens-auctions5Harold adored and cherished every photograph sent to him with almost of all of them being inscribed to Harold. One such memorable photograph, signed by famed director Cecil B. DeMille, is inscribed “May the public never find my spectacles as funny as they find yours.”Gloria Swanson“If the walls could talk” could be the motto for such an extensive historical collection. The collection features signed photographs from such legendary Hollywood stars as Fred Astaire, Marlene Dietrich, Clarke Gable, Ginger Rogers, John Barrymore, Jack Benny, Clara Bow, Bob Hope, Cecil B. DeMille, Errol Flynn, Boris Karloff, Ginger Rogers, Louella Parsons, Feg Murray, Zane Grey, Harry Blackstone, Samuel Goldwyn, Hal Roach, Walt Disney, Irene Hervey, Sonja Henie, Loretta Young, George Burns, Bing Crosby, Jeanette MacDonald, Nelson Eddy, Joel McCrea, Claudette Colbert, Bette Davis and many more.Autographed PhotoIn addition to legendary film stars, the collection includes autographed photos from some of history’s greatest legends including Babe Ruth, Calvin Coolidge, Thomas Edison, Amelia Earhart, and Helen Keller.

The exhibition: Canaletto and his rivals

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 ottobre 2010

London:  (Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as “Canaletto” (Venice, 1697 – 1768)  has been presented at the National Gallery of London on Tuesday 12th October. Open until 16th January 2011, the exhibition presents the finest assembly of Venetian views of Canaletto  and his 18th-century rivals to be seen in a generation.The exposition brings together around 50 major loans from the public and private collections of the UK, Europe and North America. The most important Canaletto’s works are juxtaposed in six rooms with those of his rivals to demonstrate different approaches to similar views of the city.Major rivals include Luca Carlevarijs, Michele Marieschi, Bernardo Bellotto and Francesco Guardi.All the painters describe Venice, a city of spectacle and magnificent buildings, regattas and grand civic ceremonies.Organised by the National Gallery, London, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and sponsored by Credit Suisse, the exhibition is curated by Charles Beddington, with Dawson Carr as coordinator curator at the National Gallery, London. Aristocratic travellers considered these “vedute” like souvenirs and they fuelled a highly competitive market.In the middle of 18th-century the Canaletto’s market was disrupted when the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-1748) led to a reduction of the number of British visitors to Venice. The merchant Joseph Smith who acted as an agent for the Venetian artist, helped him to move to London to be closer to his market. Canaletto remained in England from 1746 until 1755. He produced views of London, including the new ‘Westminster Bridge’. “Venice: Canaletto and his rivals” presents the bests view paintings of one of the most beautiful city in the world. Even if the “Serenissima” economical power was declining, the city became one of the most elegant and refined in Europe. Venice seemed to prefer the peaceful world of art instead of the complicated political strategies.The Treaty of Campoformio (1797), by which Venice lost the independence, was getting closer but – as the painter Alessandro Marchesini said on July 1725 – in the Canaletto’s view paintings, “you still can see the sun shining”. (from l’Italoeuropeo Giordano Fenzi)

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 21 ottobre 2009

The Artist and His MotherPhiladelphia until 10/1/201026th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway Philadelphia Museum of Art curated by Michael Taylor  Retrospective celebrating the extraordinary life and work of Arshile Gorky (American, born Armenia, c.1904-1948), a seminal figure in the movement towards gestural abstraction that would transform American art in the years after World War II. The first comprehensive survey of the work of this artist in nearly three decades, Arshile Gorky: A Retrospective will premier at the Museum and present 180 paintings, sculptures and works on paper reflecting the full scope of Gorky’s prolific career. Drawn from public and private collections throughout the United States and Europe, this retrospective will reveal the evolution of Gorky’s unique visual vocabulary and mature style. It is organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and will be accompanied by a major publication, published in association with Yale University Press. The exhibition will travel to Tate Modern, London (February 10 – May 3, 2010) and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (June 6 – September 20, 2010) following its debut in Philadelphia. The exhibition will be accompanied by a 400-page catalogue, Arshile Gorky: A Retrospective, published by the Philadelphia Museum of Art in association with Yale University Press.
About Arshile Gorky. Born Vosdanig Adoian around 1904 near Lake Van in an Armenian province of Ottoman Turkey, Gorky witnessed as a young boy the ethnic cleansing of his people, the minority Armenians. Turkish troops in 1915 drove Gorky’s family and thousands of others out of Van on a death march to the frontier of Caucasian Armenia. Suffering from starvation in 1919, during a time of severe deprivation for the Armenian refugees, Gorky’s mother died in his arms. With his sister, Vartoosh, he eventually arrived in the United States where, claiming to be a cousin of the Russian writer Maxim Gorky, he changed his name to Arshile Gorky.  (Image: The Artist and His Mother)
