    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.
