Exhibition presents an overview of the architecture and interiors of the De Stijl movement – Den Haag – 10.06.2017-17.09.2017 – 10585

Theo van Doesburg en Cornelis van Eesteren, Maison particuliere, 1923

The architecture and interiors of De Stijl are famous around the world. Dutch architects and designers like Gerrit Rietveld, Theo van Doesburg, Cornelis van Eesteren and J.J.P. Oud blazed the trail for generations of progressive thinkers who came after them. The historical roots of De Stijl are less well-known. This summer, the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and Het Nieuwe Instituut (which holds the greatest architecture collection in the world) present an overview of drawings, architectural models and furniture by members of the influential art movement. Exhibited side by side for the first time ever, the works offer surprising insights: what seems simple and straightforward at first sight proves to be ambiguous and complex. And what appears brand-new may turn out not to have been.

Galleria d’Arte Maggiore exhibits works by Tong Yanrunan and Giorgio Morandi – Bologna – 08.06.2017-02.09.2017 – 11584

The exhibition “Forms of Time: Tong Yanrunan and Giorgio Morandi”, on view at Galleria d’Arte Maggiore in Bologna represents a new and important stage in the project that the Chinese artist has been dedicating to the tradition of portrait for 19 years. Already famous in China and present in some of the most important international museums, Tong Yanrunan travels in different countries realizing a maximum number of paintings for each exhibition. The slowness of execution is in fact an integral part of his work, as well as an experience of dialogue between the artist and the subject, turning almost into a performance, in opposition to the numerical titles of the paintings that recall the progressive codes of the pictures taken by a digital camera.

In July 2017 Christie’s will offer for auction the collection of Raine, Countess Spencer (1929-2016). Lady Spencer, the only daughter of celebrated romantic novelist Dame Barbara Cartland, enjoyed a position at the centre of London society for over 60 years, having been named Deb of the Year in 1947. She had an appreciation of the fine and decorative arts; 18th century France was of special interest, and she assembled a collection of paintings by some of the greatest artists of that period, including Boucher, Fragonard and Vernet. Lady Spencer also collected fine furniture on which she displayed ormolu clocks, objets d’art and Chinese works of art – including intricately carved jades; the Art Deco was also a period of particular inspiration. Highlights from Lady Spencer’s important collection of French 18th century Old Master paintings will be offered for sale at Christie’s King Street on 6 July as part of the Old Masters Evening Sale, followed by a dedicated collection sale on 13 July: The Collection of Raine, Countess Spencer. The sale will offer a glimpse of the interiors of Lady Spencer’s London house and will feature furniture, Old Master paintings, objets d’art and jades as well as a selection of couture, jewellery and accessories from her personal wardrobe.

The Frick Collection opened a new year-long installation in the Portico Gallery, Fired by Passion, inspired by the generous gift of fourteen pieces of Du Paquier porcelain made to the Frick in 2016 by Paul Sullivan and Trustee Melinda Martin Sullivan. The Sullivans are considered to have assembled the best collection of Du Paquier in private hands. The Du Paquier manufactory was established in Vienna in 1718 by Claudius Innocentius du Paquier, an entrepreneur and official at the Viennese Court, and was only the second manufactory in Europe to produce true porcelain, after the Royal Meissen Manufactory, outside Dresden. Although in operation for only twenty-five years, Du Paquier left an impressive body of inventive and often whimsical work, forging a distinct identity in the history of European porcelain production.

Kunstmuseum Luzern presents exhibition of works by Gilles Rotzetter – 10.06.2017-20.08.2017 – 10583

Installation view.

Did you know that small, neutral Switzerland once wanted to become an atomic power? And that in 1945 it was not even so badly positioned for this? Under the leadership of the renowned physicist Paul Scherrer and his successors, a commission dealt with the civilian and military use of nuclear power 1946–1988. What we see and perceive in history is determined by numerous filters: medial, political, contemporary, social, personal. Gilles Rotzetter is interested in the blind spots and the forgotten storerooms of history. His latest work cycle and the exhibition Swiss Atomic Love are dedicated to this piece of forgotten Swiss history.

Painting on the Edge: A Historical Survey’ brings together works by sixteen renowned masters and lesser-known artists from around the world and explores the radical approaches taken to painting in the post-war period. The exhibition focuses on artists who veered away from the traditional methods of painting by knotting or completely removing the canvas, using shaped stretchers, and testing alternative materials. Many have never been shown together before and this presentation aims to draw new and pertinent parallels between their practices. This is the first time that Harmony Hammond, Sadaharu Horio, Tsuyoshi Maekawa, Kimiyo Mishima and Ted Stamm have been shown in England.
