Boldini - Pleasures and Days

Published on June 24, 2022

Born in Ferrara, Italy in 1842, Boldini spent most of his career in Paris. He was a close friend of Degas and also of Proust, and moved in aristocratic and upper middle-class circles. During his lifetime, he enjoyed considerable success, becoming the favorite portraitist of a rich, international clientele. In Paris, the fashion capital of the world, he had no equal when it came to portraying princesses and rich heiresses – always wearing the most beautiful dresses. His inimitable style, which was modern but at odds with the avant-garde, has made his works captivating and moving testimonies of that lost era in Paris.
This retrospective at Petit Palais, Av. Winston Churchill, Paris, France running until July 24, 2022 is an opportunity for visitors to discover or to renew acquaintance with Boldini, a virtuoso painter and figure on the social, artistic and literary scene of Belle Époque Paris.

Writing for the Visual Arts - Florence Academy of Art

Published on June 23, 2022

September 26 - December 9
Taught remotely from the Florence campus

November 28 - December 9
In-person option in Florence

If you would like to write with mastery about figurative art, or simply further your knowledge of art history and the history of literature about art, this course will survey figurative art throughout the ages, while examining the techniques that literature has historically used to write about art.

Starting with the Ancient Greeks and Romans, progressing on to the Medieval period, the arrival of Humanism, the rediscovery of Classical forms, the establishment of the Academies during the Renaissance, and the role of the Academies through the Early Modern period, you will learn to analyze select works by their medium, composition, subject matter, and patronage, and to place them within the greater context of the long tradition of figurative art. By studying the rhetorical techniques that literature has historically used in writing about art, you will develop your writing skills through short weekly exercises, moving step-by-step from literary strategies to the organization and construction of a solid expository essay by the end of the course.

In-person Option: Students may experience the Florence Academy from within to understand how students train to become figurative painters and sculptors, while also touring the main museums, galleries, and churches of Florence, during the final 2 weeks of class.

The Final Week - Rehs Contemporary, ARC Select: INSIGHT

Published on June 20, 2022

Rehs Contemporary, ARC Select: INSIGHT, presents new works by the winners of the Rehs Contemporary Galleries Award in the 15th ARC Salon Competition.

INSIGHT sets out to explore our connection with artwork in a very express and direct way. In nearly all the works featured in the exhibit, the subject is making eye contact with their audience. It not only creates a personal and intimate moment, but it forces us to give deeper consideration for who or what we are observing. On the surface, you might think the relationship between an artwork and its creator, and artwork and its observer, are incredibly different. Yet in reality, there is a compelling argument to be made that an artwork serves a unified purpose – providing valuable insight to help us understand ourselves and the world around us a little better.

The show is open through June 24. 5 East 57th Street, 8th Floor, New York, NY 10022

The sooner the better. Each day we get closer to the deadline, higher and higher volumes of entries are submitted.

Crossroads: Drawing the Dutch Landscape

Published on June 7, 2022

Between the late 16th century and the early 18th century, artists working in the Netherlands—then known as the Dutch Republic—produced an extraordinary number of landscape drawings. Many of these works depicted sites that were either recognizable as or evocative of the country’s cities, villages, and countryside. This profusion of local imagery coincided with the young country’s quest for global dominion, as well as with war and dramatic ecological change at home. 

With 90 works selected almost entirely from the holdings of the Harvard Art Museums and the Maida and George Abrams Collection, this exhibition demonstrates how Dutch artists navigated intersections, or crossroads, between artistic traditions and environmental realities through their drawings.

The exhibition runs from May 21 - August 14, 2022 at the Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA 02138.
