New ARC Associate Living Master

March 16, 2018

ARC is pleased to welcome Laurence Saunois as an Associate Living Master.

"I was born near Paris, but I went regularly to spend school holidays on my grandfather's small farm in the southwest of France, in Figeac...As I child I stood in admiration of artists such as Ingres, Gericault, Durer, and Da Vinci.  I tried to reproduce their works in an instinctive way because I had never taken formal drawing lessons. I spent hours at a time drawing..."

Rembrandt and the Inspiration of India

Published March 15, 2018

Rembrandt created a series of unusually meticulous drawings depicting emperors and courtiers from Mughal India. This exhibition explores 20 of the Dutch master’s careful studies of imperial Mughal portraiture and places them within a broader circuit of cross-cultural exchanges. By juxtaposing Rembrandt’s drawings with Indian paintings of similar compositions—and pairing Mughal artworks with European prints that inspired them—fascinating stories unfold about the flow of art and ideas across time and oceans.

The exhibition is being held at the J. Paul Getty Museum located on 1200 Getty Center Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90049 and runs from 3/13 - 6/24/18.

New ARC Living Artist

March 12, 2018

ARC is pleased to welcome Robbie Fitzpatrick as our newest ARC Living Artist!

"It has been a road of many curves and corners that has led me to watercolor. Along those bends, I kept turning to art...

With a 'small' nudge from my husband, I re-considered the direction of my art...There ensued a torrent of pencil drawings.  Still, wanting more and loving color, I reached for watercolor pigment, and the simplicity of black and white was transformed into the transparent colors of watercolor."
