The Aestheticized Interview with Denis Brun (France)

"I think that art has not such a social role that contemporary society would like us to believe. Especially when it is used as a substitute to real politic or education to try to badly fix a certain lack of social cohesion, economical fragility or cultural poverty. At this level, society's expectations of the unifying and restorative potential of art (and artists) are totally disproportionate".

London's Turbulent Russian Market

The market for Russian art is one of the strangest in the auction world. It plays out in London – for the quasi-exclusive benefit of Russian dealers and collectors who jet in from Moscow. Its biggest sellers are artists beloved by Russians – who, to international collectors, appear little-known and over-priced. The market is not the preserve of Sotheby’s and Christie’s – but also involves their smaller cousins Bonhams and family firm MacDougall’s, launched in 2004 exclusively to sell Russian art.

Back to Basics

Colombian artist Eduardo Ramírez Villamizar painted and sculpted what in his eyes are reality’s essential forms. Ramírez Villamizar (1923) knew his creations depended on his ability to identify when to stop working and researching for the piece he was constructing had no excesses nor was there anything missing from it.

3-D Day in Normandy

"Outdoor sculpture is hardly an over-reported area of the Art Market so, when I heard that an international selling-show was taking place this Summer on top of a Normandy cliff, I set off to investigate. Not just any old cliff: the cliff in Etretat where Claude Monet painted his famous Impressionist seascapes in the 1880s.".

The Symbolism of Flowers in the Art of Georgia O’Keeffe

O’Keeffe herself often commented that the colour and form of the flowers was more important than the subject matter, suggesting that she was interested in the natural form and capturing its beauty. Several feminist critics have praised O’Keeffe’s work as capturing feminist themes far ahead of their time. Certainly, in the era in which she was working, O’Keeffe was in a male-dominated world and was repeatedly reminded of her gender and otherness as she moved through the art world.

Musee d'Orsay Exhibits 'Degas at the Opera' Throughout his entire career, from his debut in the 1860s up to his final works after 1900, the Opera formed the focal point of Degas’ output. It was his “own room”. He explored the theatre’s various spaces - auditorium and stage, boxes, foyers, and dance studios - and followed those who frequented them: dancers, singers, orchestral musicians, audience members, and black-attired subscribers lurking in the wings. This closed world presented a microcosm of infinite possibilities allowing all manner of experimentations: multiple points of view, contrasts of lighting, the study of motion and the precision of movement.

An Interview with the New Owners of Art Düsseldorf "I believe Art Düsseldorf has great potential for growth and I’m always interested in working with fairs that add value to the market. Walter Gehlen and his team have enjoyed two very successful editions - we can now couple this with the experience and knowledge Angus Montgomery Arts has garnered from over 40 years of establishing contemporary art fairs. Welcoming Art Düsseldorf into our portfolio will, I hope, enable the fair to benefit from our wider international audiences of collectors, exhibitors and partners".
