The curator who inspected the authenticity and provenance of the works at the request of the Italian Public Prosecutions Department drew a firm conclusion: ‘they are the real paintings!’ Despite a 14-year journey, the two paintings appear to be in fairly good condition. Both lack their frames and show signs of some damage. It is not yet clear when the paintings will return to Amsterdam.

Squek Carnwath - What befor Came After
New York, October 12, 2015 – Jane Lombard Gallery presents What Before Came After, Squeak Carnwath´s first solo exhibition in New York City in over a decade. The exhibition features a selection of Carnwath´s paintings and cigar-box sculptures spanning 25 years of practice. Active in the Bay Area since the 1970s, alongside artists such as Viola Frey and Jay DeFeo, Carnwath has developed a signature style that incorporates meticulously applied layers of oil paint with text, repeated symbolic iconography, and abstract patterns to create complex works which gradually reveal her personal exploration of representation, memory, and the human experience. The artist will be present for the opening reception on October 22 from 6-8 pm.
Jean Benoit Pouliot:Artist in Residence
In its essence, my work revolves around different formal issues, such as composition and how the spectator reads an image. My paintings focus on the contrasts arising between what is organic and what is geometric. The composition of my work generally consists of several layers that generate subtle push-and-pull effects.
I recently started using some of my paintings to explore the potential trajectories of an image. Given the numerous filters that synthesize and compress the information by which we understand the world, I seek to explore the space that exists between physical and virtual reality (or between the object and its representation). By shifting, deforming and digitally modifying these images, I will examine how a painting undergoes several transmutations. Furthermore, the process through which visual information is continuously synthesized applies not only to images, but also to other spheres of our society. As such, it is undoubtedly fertile ground for further exploration.

Max Beckmann in New York
Opening October 19, 2016, the exhibition Max Beckmann in New York at The Metropolitan Museum of Art will put a spotlight on the artist´s special connection with New York City. It will feature 14 paintings that Beckmann created while living in New York from 1949 to 1950, as well as 25 works, dating from 1920 to 1948, from New York collections. The exhibition assembles several groups of iconic works, including self-portraits; mythical, expressionist interiors; robust, colorful portraits of women and performers; landscapes; and triptychs.
The uncanny home in the Kunstmuseum Bonn
The transformation of the home from familiar safe haven into a place both alien and uncanny is one for which art has found a host of haunting images. From the late nineteenth century onward, these images formed part of the history of the interior as a genre, providing vivid proof of how scenes of everyday life and domestic bliss increasingly became scenes of angst and imperilment.
The Modernist crisis that cast doubt on the identity and coherence of the subject eventually infected the one realm that had hitherto counted as safe, namely the subject´s own home, which to a subject alienated from the self was itself bound to become alien.
Seeing with the Inner Eye Masterpieces from the Hegewisch Collection
Paying tribute to his exquisite selection of drawings and prints, in 2016 the
Kunsthalle is dedicating a memorial exhibition to the deceased Hamburg collector
Klaus Hegewisch (1919-2014). Under the title Seeing with the Inner Eye, the
show compiles highlights of his activities as a collector in the Harzen Cabinet, our
new gallery for the presentation of drawings and graphic works.
As suggested in the title, the topic of immersion into the inner world serves as a
reference point, a notion subtly touched upon in self-portraits from Rembrandt to
Beckmann, or more explicitly expressed in master engravings such as Dürer’s
Caravaggio’s Heirs - Baroque in Naples
This exhibition will bring together works of renowned and lesser-known masters to make visible the artistic development of an entire epoch in all its prolific diversity. For the first time, the German public will be able to view Italian-Spanish Baroque painting in the context of its opposing currents and the genuine competition among its artists – beginning with the innovative style of Caravaggio (1571—1610) to the gradual development of a pronounced local tradition and culminating in the synthesis embodied in the sensuous paintings of Luca Giordano (1634—1705) and Francesco Solimena (1657—1747). Visitors will enjoy the exceptional diversity of religious and mythological themes, as well as still lifes and allegories that shape the narrative of this particularly fascinating century.
