    Sit for Picasso? No thanks…



    The French journalist Anne Sinclair has given an enlightening interview to our French sister paper Le Journal des Arts about her late grandfather, the influential art dealer Paul Rosenberg (1881-1959).

    A recent exhibition at La Boverie in Liège, Belgium, entitled 21 Rue la Boétie, featured paintings that passed through Rosenberg’s hands, with 63 works on display by artists such as Matisse, Braque and Picasso. In a controversial move, the show did not travel to the Centre Pompidou in Paris as planned, but instead opened at the Musée Maillol in the capital (until 23 July). Sinclair says that Picasso hoped to paint her portrait but she resisted, fearing that she would end up as one of the artist’s “distorted faces”.

    In the heart of Europe, a new show reflects a diverse and globalised world

    Strangely, the capital city of Belgium and the de facto capital of Europe has no dedicated museum of contemporary art. The contemporary collection of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium is mostly in storage amid ongoing renovation.

    The Dutch designer and architect gets a new lease of life

    The only industrial building designed by Gerrit Rietveld (1888-1964), the Dutch designer and architect associated with the De Stijl movement, sat empty for nearly a decade before its current owner bought it and set about bringing it back to life. Fast forward two years and not only has the former textile factory in Bergeijk, a city in the Netherlands’s Noord-Brabant province, undergone a sympathetic restoration, but a visitors’ centre devoted to the building’s celebrated designers is due to open this month. Rietveld built the factory in 1957 for De Ploeg, a manufacturer of curtain and upholstery fabrics. Unlike typical industrial buildings of the period, Rietveld’s Modernist construction was more horizontal than vertical, with a distinctive saw-tooth west façade, glass roof panels that afforded plenty of natural light and the bold, primary colours of De Stijl dotted throughout. Rietveld was thinking about a new, modern culture when he designed De Ploeg, says the art historian Edwin van Onna, from the Rietveld & Ruys Foundation. Rietveld also designed two nearby houses as well as a bus stop, which was restored in 2011.



    The 12-hectare park that surrounds the factory, which was designed by the landscape architect Mien Ruys and is owned by the City, is also being given a new lease of life. “The park and factory were conceived as an ensemble,” Van Onna says. Burgmans estimates that “99.9% of the park will also be restored to its original appearance”. In the summer, the park hosts popular design and music festivals.

    Is this painting to be sold in Madrid really a work by Velázquez?

    The painting Retrato de niña o Joven Inmaculada (Portrait of girl or Young Immaculate) is attracting the attention of experts at the Spanish auction house Abalarte in Madrid, where it has been billed as a potential early work work by Velázquez due to be auctioned on 25 April. The 57cm x 44cm oil on canvas was discovered by chance by Richard de Willermin, a specialist in 17th- and 18th-century Italian, Flemish and Spanish art who consults as an expert for Abalarte.

    Shows set to let textile artist and printmaker Anni Albers shine

    When we hear the name Albers, we tend to think of Josef and his Homage to the Square series of paintings. But Anni Albers (1899-1994), his wife and fellow Bauhaus refugee, is at the forefront of two forthcoming exhibitions, including a full-scale survey of her work planned for 2018 at Tate Modern. The show, which will travel to the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen in Düsseldorf, is preceded by a smaller survey, Anni Albers: Touching Vision, which is due to open this autumn at the Guggenheim Bilbao (6 October-14 January 2018).

    Nicholas Fox Weber, the director of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, which is supporting both exhibitions, says: "During her lifetime, she got quite a bit of attention, but in a slower world than Josef did," he says. In 1949, she became the first textile artist to have a solo show at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, which was organised by Philip Johnson.

    Artists who made it a family affair

    Although Katarzyna Kobro and Wladyslaw Strzeminski worked primarily in different media—sculpture and painting, respectively—the married couple’s relationship was of “crucial importance” to their artistic theories and work, says Jaros

    Vito Acconci, Body Art trailblazer, poet and architect, has died, aged 77

    The US artist and architect Vito Acconci, known for his radical conceptual works such as Seedbed (1972), has died age 77. The Bronx-born artist turned poet and architect, who is considered a Body Art trailblazer, arguably paved the way for a later generation of artists such as Martin Kippenberger, Matthew Barney and Paul McCarthy.

    Acconci received his BA with a major in literature from Holy Cross College in Worcester, Massachusetts, in 1962. After publishing a magazine called 0 to 9 from 1967 to 1969, he turned to photography, documenting passers-by that he followed on the street for the work Following Piece (1969).

    The work explores “his body’s occupancy of public space through the execution of preconceived actions or activities”, according to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, which owns photographs from the series. For Seedbed, he spent hours masturbating beneath a ramp at the Sonnabend gallery in New York while whispering aloud his fantasies about visitors.

    From the late 1970s, he began making experimental sculptures, furniture and public art pieces, including Birth of the Car/Birth of the Boat (1988) located in Pittsburgh, Name Calling Chair (1990) and Flying Floors at Philadelphia International Airport which was unveiled in 1988. The same year, he established his own architecture practice, Acconci Studio, which is based in Brooklyn.

    Laure de Beauvau-Craon, princess and former chair of Sotheby’s France, has died, aged 74



    Laure de Beauvau-Craon, who led Sotheby’s France for almost 15 years, died on Saturday, 29 April in Anjou, in the Loire valley, aged 74. Born Laure de Rougemont, she became a princess when she married Marc de Beauveau-Craon, the heir of a noble house tied to the duchy of Lorraine. Her royal title did not stop her from waging—and winning—a war on another ancient order, France’s “commissaires-priseurs”.

    Turner Prize shortlist dominated by painters and older artists as Tate lifts age limit



    The 2017 Turner Prize shortlist, announced today, 3 May, immediately reflected the Tate’s recent decision to lift the age limit of the shortlisted artists. Since 1991, artists over 50 have been excluded from the prize, but this year’s shortlist includes the painter Hurvin Anderson, 52, and another painter and multimedia artist, Lubaina Himid, who is 62. Announcing the shortlist, Alex Farquharson, Tate Britain’s director, says: “The upper age limit originally helped the prize define itself as an award for a breakthrough moment in a more emerging artist’s career. But now this remit is so well established, I think we can safely acknowledge that artists can experience a breakthrough at any age, without any risk of the prize becoming a lifetime achievement award.”
