"Kongo: Power and Majesty,"

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

Curator Alisa LaGamma welcomes readers to the exhibition blog for "Kongo: Power and Majesty."

Here’s an inside look at "Kongo: Power and Majesty," a new catalogue celebrating four centuries of history and visual culture of the kingdom of Kongo (an area that includes present-day Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Angola). Over 170 objects attest to the enduring majesty of artistic traditions that flourished in the face of displacement, civil war, and the devastating effects of the slave trade.http://met.org/1KvAwBp ‪#‎KongoPower‬
“Splendid, thought-provoking…” —The Wall Street Journal on “Kongo: Power and Majesty.” With works drawn from sixty institutional and private lenders across Europe and the United States, this exhibition relates the objects on view to specific historical developments and challenges misconceptions of Africa's relationship with the West.

Born on this day in 1903, artist Mark Rothko explored the expressive potential of color to convey emotions. Learn about his painting "Untitled (Violet, Black, Orange, Yellow on White and Red)":http://gu.gg/SG2H8 Archival print from the Guggenheim Store:http://gu.gg/SG2Ks

Happy birthday to painter Mark Rothko, born on this day in 1903. Works like “No. 13 (White, Red, on Yellow)” epitomized what he said was "the simple expression of the complex thought."

"From the start, he had struggled to reveal the human condition." Happy birthday Mark Rothko!

“There are some artists who tell all, but I think it is more shrewd to tell little,” declared Mark Rothko. In fact he was always reticent when questioned about his painting techniques and materials.
For those who want to know more about the science behind Rothko’s techniques and materials, conservation scientists Alison Langley and Suzanne Quillen Lomax explore his pivotal early works, (known as multiforms) in the second volume of the National Gallery of Art's conservation journal, "Facture: Conservation, Science, Art, Art History." Their detailed analysis of the multiforms reveals not only the evolution of his abstract style but also his creative experiments with paint that foreshadow the enigmatic paint surfaces of his mature work.

Mark Rothko’s health deteriorated during the final two years of his life, a period during which he made over 250 works on paper, compared to just 24 paintings on canvas. In works such as this one, he explored subtle variations and combinations of a palette restricted to shades of gray, brown, and black. In a remarkably economic way, Rothko crafted a hauntingly intense viewing experience. In the lower, gray passage, rich and rapid brushwork creates the sense of a roiling sea, swirling mist, or menacing fogbank. The upper, dark brown passage, on the other hand, has been painted with broad, rectilinear strokes, resulting in a vague patchwork-quilt effect. The disjunction between Rothko’s modes of handling creates a disquieting tension between flatness and depth, illusion and materiality. Recalling the ruminative seascapes of the German Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich, this 1969 painting exemplifies the intense vitality and spectral ethereality of Rothko’s late works.
Look carefully at this Rothko. Do you see any similarities to paintings by Friedrich (http://1.usa.gov/1LOq5cK)? What is happening in Rothko's painting? Do you see the confrontation between top and bottom? ‪#‎Rothko‬ ‪#‎ArtAtoZ‬

[新聞] 巴黎葛飾北齋畫展前,九件你一定要知道的事

18 世紀浮世繪大師葛飾北齋可說是全世界最有名的日本藝術家,其開創的獨特風格影響了亞洲、歐洲的許多畫派,而最近在法國的巴黎大皇宮(Grand Palais)即將舉行葛飾北齋的大規模畫展,展出大約 500 幅作品,橫跨大師六個不同風格的創作時期,有些畫作因為狀況問題,也許再也不會在日本以外的地方展覽,如果人在巴黎附近的城市,絕對不可錯過這次的難得展覽,新聞網站 Huffington Post 的文藝版列出了九個觀展前必備的小知識,以下就為大家介紹:http://www.biosmonthly.com/contactd.php?id=5294


18 世紀浮世繪大師葛飾北齋可說是全世界最有名的日本藝術家,其開創的獨特風格影響了亞洲、歐洲的許多畫派,而這一位大師竟曾經表示,自己在 70 歲以前的作品都是「浪費時間」,不過這並沒有阻止世人對他的狂熱愛好。
最近在法國的巴黎大皇宮(Grand Palais)即將舉行葛飾北齋的大規模畫展,展出大約 500 幅作品,橫跨大師六個不同風格的創作時期,有些畫作因為狀況問題,也許再也不會在日本以外的地方展覽,如果人在巴黎附近的城市,絕對不可錯過這次的難得展覽,新聞網站 Huffington Post 的文藝版列出了九個觀展前必備的小知識,以下就為大家介紹。
1. Ukiyo-e(浮世繪)
指的是一種流行於 17 到 19 世紀的藝術形式,為木頭版畫,名稱來由是引自「新興商人階層的享樂文化」,而葛飾北齋以浮世繪形式創作的作品也最廣為人知。
2. The Edo period(江戶時代)
是指日本歷史上西元 1603 到 1868 這段時期,標誌著經濟的快速成長,以及在藝術、文化、與性愛中出現的新的頹廢享樂方式。
3. Shunrō
4. Shunga(春宮圖)
在日本的俚語中,春天帶有做愛的暗示,而春宮圖的內容都與性愛有關,葛飾北齋就有一幅名畫「The Dream Of the Fisherman’s Wife 」描繪一名與巨大章魚做愛的女子。這些關於性愛的版畫當時在日本社會中的各個階層都很受歡迎。
5. Kabuki(歌舞伎演員)
對江戶時代的日本來說是一項前衛的藝術形式,通常演員會著誇張的服飾與奇異的妝容,葛飾北齋在 1779 年曾創作一系列關於歌舞伎演員的版畫。
6. Surimono
字面翻譯為「印刷物」,與由大眾文化所滋養的浮世繪不同的是,Surimono 的創作目的是為了私下收藏與小眾觀賞,很少公眾出售、展示,所以畫風、主題通常更具實驗性質。
7. Mount Fuji(富士山)
是日本境內最高的山,外觀幾乎對稱,葛飾北齋在 66 歲高齡時曾創作一系列富士山的版畫。
8. Hokusai Manga(北齋漫畫)
雖然稱作「漫畫」,但其實專指由葛飾北齋創作的 4000 幅描繪自然、植物與鬼怪的草圖。
9. Japonism
於 1872 年首次命名,指的是葛飾北齋對日後歐洲畫家的影響,包括印象派的莫內、梵谷與高更。

根據 BBC WORLD 一專題之記憶補充

The Great Wave off Kanagawa (神奈川沖浪裏 Kanagawa oki nami ura? "浪裏"之意不可解 或許是"浪" ) is a famous woodblock printing by the Japanese artist Hokusai. It was published in 1832 (Edo Period) as the first in Hokusai's series 36 Views of Mount Fuji and is his most famous work. It depicts an enormous wave threatening boats near the Japanese prefecture of Kanagawa; Mount Fuji can be seen in the background. The wave is probably not intended to be a tsunami, but a normal ocean wave created by the wind. Like the other prints in the series, it depicts the area around Mount Fuji under particular conditions.
Copies of the print hang at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the British Museum in London, and in Claude Monet's house in Giverny, France.

Edgar Degas (1834-1917) ‘Art is a lie to which one gives the the accent of truth.’

“Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.” Edgar Degas ‪#‎ArtistQuotes‬ http://ow.ly/SzlP5

Announcing "Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty" an exhibition focusing on the artist's rarely seen monotypes and their impact on his wider practice, on view March 26 through July 24, 2016. The first museum exhibition in the U.S. in nearly 50 years to examine these radical, innovative works—and MoMA's first monographic exhibition of the artist—"Edgar Degas: A Strange New Beauty" will feature approximately 130 monotypes along with some 50 related works, including paintings, drawings, pastels, sketchbooks, and prints.

Exhibition opening next spring at the Museum of Modern Art will explore the wild side of Edgar Degas.

"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see." Happy birthday Degas! http://ow.ly/PKP16
