Düsseldorf returns a valuable painting by Franz Marc
Relief among descendants, praise from Jewish organisations: Düsseldorf returns a valuable painting as looted art. But at the same time, a new debate on restitution has been opened.
The decision of the Düsseldorf city council to return an important painting by Franz Marc after a years-long dispute over looted artworks has earned the city much praise.
The descendants of former owner Kurt Grawi (1887-1944), who was persecuted by the National Socialists, reacted with relief and gratitude: ´´Our family is very grateful to live in a country where justice continues to be the guiding principle and which deals fairly and openly with its past, ´´ announced the descendants, who now live in Germany and Chile.

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.
