    Sewell’s "beautiful and refined" gift to the National Gallery



    Louis Jean François Lagrenée, Maternal Affection (1773)

    The acerbic, influential late art critic Brian Sewell loved the National Gallery in London, and often visited the hallowed institution as a child. “I’m leaving my body to science, and if there’s anything left, they can burn it, mix the ashes with bird food and scatter them on the steps of the National Gallery,” he told the Mail on Sunday in 2014. The Evening Standard writer has bequeathed a small painting by the French artist Louis-Jean-François Lagrenée, Maternal Affection (1773), to the gallery which is now on show in room 33. Gabriele Finaldi, the director of the National Gallery, says: “Brian Sewell had a profound love for the National Gallery as well as a connoisseur's passion for lesser known masters, so it is especially pleasing that Lagrenée's beautiful and refined Maternal Affection, which he owned, has come to the gallery as a gift from his estate.”

    The art data arms race is on: Artnet acquires Tutela analytics



    Ramping up the race to apply the power of big data to the art trade, the German-owned online price database and auctioneer Artnet has acquired Tutela Capital SA, a boutique analytics firm co-founded by the former trader Fabien Bocart, for an undisclosed sum.Tutela specialises in quantitative art market analyses, intelligent algorithms, and high-frequency price indices, and since its founding in 2011, has valued for more than $2bn. The acquisition—not long after Sotheby’s announced it had purchased the Mei Moses Art Indices—brings Tutela’s proprietary technologies and Bocart into the Artnet fold, which includes a database of auction results from the past 30 years, a news site, and an online auction platform.

    “This seemed to be a natural supplement and evolution of the price database”, which has 75,000 subscribers, Artnet’s founder Hans Neuendorf tells The Art newspaper. “When we first tried this, 15 years ago, we couldn’t find a data specialist who had knowledge of art. It was a reasonable price, after having tried for many years to find the right person to do this.”

    All fired up: Attenborough’s Picasso ceramics sell out at Sotheby’s



    Picasso, Grand vase aux femmes nues (1950)

    The late, great British actor and director Richard Attenborough was ahead of the curve when it came to Picasso ceramics if the prices paid at an auction of such works held today (22 November)*is anything to go by. Sixty-seven lots from the collection that he and his wife Sheila built over 50 years went under the hammer at Sotheby’s London*with an estimated combined total “in the region of £1.5m”. All of the lots were sold in a “white glove” sale that fetched £3m in total ($3.8m; with buyer’s premium). The top lot, Grand vase aux femmes nues (1950), went for £728,750 ($909,407) and even smaller items such as an ashtray decorated with a bull (Taureau, 1952) leapt over estimate (£1,000-£2,000; sold for £5,000). The Attenboroughs’ first visit to the Madoura pottery studio in Vallauris, where Picasso dabbled in the medium from the late 1940s, turned into an annual pilgrimage during their family summer holidays on the Cote d’Azur.

    State Hermitage Museum to stage Pompeii show in 2018



    The State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg is to host a major exhibition dedicated to the lost Roman city of Pompeii in 2018 after signing a four-year partnership with the site’s superintendency and the Naples Archaeological Museum.This is the second major agreement to show artefacts excavated from the 2,000-year-old site abroad, following the US tour of Pompeii: The Exhibition, which opened last week at Union Station Kansas City (until 29 May 2017) and will travel to venues in Phoenix, Texas, and Tampa, Florida, in 2017 and 2018.

    In return, the Hermitage is due to lend Scythian gold, Russian landscape paintings of Italy and neoclassical sculptures by Canova to three exhibitions at the Naples museum in 2018 and 2019. The collaboration will also have a strong focus on research behind the scenes, with staff exchanges, joint conferences and archaeological digs among the planned initiatives. The three institutions will pool their knowledge in the use of new technologies for conserving, digitising and interpreting their collections, including augmented reality, according to a press statement.

    Major Picasso-Giacometti exhibition bound for Qatar



    A blockbuster exhibition dedicated to Pablo Picasso and Alberto Giacometti is due to open in Qatar early next year. Picasso-Giacometti (22 February-21 May), which will launch at the Fire Station Artist in Residence centre in Doha, opened earlier this year in Paris at the Musée National Picasso (until 5 February).The exhibition includes more than 80 works drawn from the collections of the Musée National Picasso and the Fondation Giacometti in Paris. These include The She Goat by Picasso (1950) and Giacometti’s Tall Woman (1960).

    The curators, including Catherine Grenier, the director of the Fondation Giacometti, highlight the “correspondences between their works, the influence of the surrealist movement, and the return to realism during the post-war period”, says a press statement.
