Flex art ..lovely delicate ceramic figures by Glenys Barton can be grouped to the owner’s fancy. My client saw these originally another location in her home, their beauty stayed with her,(as all good art does) and we configured these 9. Lovely against the dark wall.

Remembering #Robertindiana 1928-2018.
As well known Italian architect and designer @pierolissoni one day said “To realize a good project you need heart, instinct, emotion and a good dose of madness” In my opinion Robert Indiana “The Great American Love” had them all!
As Alan J Sands from my Team mentioned “Thank you for giving us #robertindianalove and #robertindianahope feelings not just sculptures. Emotions still to be yearned for as is today’s #loveisloveislove”. Photo has been taken by me last weekend of #lovesculpture currently being auctioned off in NYC @sothebys . .

Those three gorgeous looking knives come from a set of 12 made in France between 1600-1700. If I had them at home I would be using them all quite often! They are part of the Rothschild bequest to the British Museum which must have felt a bit like a small spring clean for that mighty dynasty. The room is filled with treasures and mind boggles at the family collecting habits when money is no object. I love the shape of the knives’s ends. #knifes #cutlery #french #renaissance #baroque #europe #europeanart #westernart #collecting #rothschild #family #dynasty #greatcollectors #beauty #timeless #craft #quality #historyofart #britishmuseum #bloomsbury #london #bequest #bespoke #instaart

Ещё несколько фактов о выставке «Легенды Монпарнаса».

Выставка основана на коллекции Йонаса Неттера. И самый интересный факт, на мой взгляд, состоит в том, что Неттер не был магнатом и не мог позволить себе купить уже именитых на тот момент импрессионистов. Однако, совместив любовь к искусству и деловой подход, стал поддерживать молодых художников - Утрилло, Модильяни, Кислинга, Сутина и других. В результате, ему удалось собрать потрясающую коллекцию, страховая стоимость которой оценивается сейчас порядка 1 млрд. €.

Когда видишь великие коллекции, неустанно восхищаешься провидением и смелостью тех людей, что их начинали. Часто судьба таких коллекций весьма драматична, тем не менее, благодаря выбору коллекционеров, мы можем увидеть шедевры своими глазами.

I came across this great picture of the late American collector (& dandy) Leon Kraushar originally published in @life magazine in 1965.
Rumor has it that the Orange #Marilyn painting by #Andywarhol has recently been sold to billionaire Ken Griffin for $250 million. Kraushar had bought the work in the 60s for about $1,800
The #Warhol is part of a series that became known as the ‘Shot Marilyns’, after a female visitor to Warhol’s Factory walked in, pulled a pistol out of her purse and shot through a stack of 4 Marilyn paintings

This intriguing self-portrait by the German Renaissance master Albrecht Dürer, confidently drawn at the sensitive age of 22, is thought to be among the earliest self-portraits in the history of Western art. Think of it as the original "mirror selfie"! Juxtaposed with a pillow and a hand, both slightly disproportionate to the face, the captivating image has a distinctive modern appeal that resonates with the visual vocabulary of surrealist collage. It is one of the many masterpieces in the exhibition “Leonardo to Matisse: Master Drawings from the Robert Lehman Collection” that opened at the @metmuseum this week.
.
Robert Lehman was one of the most extraordinary collectors of the 20th century in the United States, having assembled one of the most comprehensive collections of Western European Art created between the 14th and 20th centuries - what was "contemporary art" for him. Among the 300 or so paintings and 750 works on paper in the collection, there are particularly fine examples of paintings from the Italian Renaissance (Sienese school) and Early Northern Europe, as well as exceptional drawings of 18th century Venice, and from Italian, French and Northern schools. Not all the works are by famous artists and many are unattributed, but treasured for their inherent quality and historical significance, demonstrating the connoisseur’s incredible scholarly knowledge and trained judgement. The collection of 2600 works, assembled over six decades, was bequeathed to the Met in 1969.

We all know and love Howard Hodgkin's incredibly vibrant and contemporary paintings. But now, through the upcoming auction at @sothebys (Oct 24th) we discover a passionate collector of all beautiful objects, textiles and books he put together traveling over his lifetime. Pictured here is a detail of a gorgeous double fragment Qanat ('tent panels') from 17th century India. These were hanging in the hallway of his London home against a vibrant red wall #sothebys #howardhodgkin #portraitoftheartist #greatcollectors #cabanamood

The Journey of the Magi is one of the most celebrated and luxurious fresco cycles ever painted. It is ostensibly a depiction of the passage of the Three Kings to Bethlehem. It, in fact, is a dazzling commentary on the wealth and splendor of Medician Florence. Depicting a courtly procession which includes portraits of the Medici family as well as the artist himself with the Tuscan countryside as a backdrop.
.
Cosimo the Elder, a Florentine banker and politician, was the founder of the Medici dynasty. He was a highly important patron of the arts and especially architecture. He commissioned these frescoes at the end of his life to occupy a central place in the Palazzo Medici. This was designed by Cosimo’s friend Michelozzo di Bartolomeo (1396–1472). Much of Cosimo’s patronage was for churches and monasteries. His commissions include The Duomo, the rebuilding of the San Marco in Florence also by Michelozzo with an interior decorated by Fra Angelico. It is believed that Donatello created his two bronzes, Judith Slaying Holofernes and David, for the Palazzo Medici. Other artists he patronized include Andrea del Castagno and Fra Filippo Lippi.
.
As the de facto ruler of Florence, Cosimo transferred the Council of Ferrara, a meeting of the Eastern and Western churches, to Florence in 1439 and founded the Platonic Academy which became the center of the humanist thought and inspired a renewed interest in Greek culture and manuscripts, paving a new direction for writers and philosophers of the Renaissance. He was posthumously named “Father of the Nation”, and his role as a patron was later celebrated in Giorgio Vasari’s frescoes in the Palazzo Vecchio.
.
Cosimo de’Medici was born on this day in 1389.

An exhibition of the Leiden Collection - the world’s largest private assembly of Dutch Golden Age paintings and drawings - will open to the public this Saturday, Sept 23rd at the @thelongmuseum in Shanghai, following its debut @museelouvre and the National Museum of China earlier this year.
.
Shown here from the collection in detail is a mesmerising portrait of a Young Girl in a Gold-Trimmer Cloak by Rembrandt van Rijn, painted shortly after the artist relocated to Amsterdam from his hometown Leiden. The sitter is typically identified as Rembrandt’s first wife, Saskia van Uylenburgh, although some believe that it could be a tronie - an imaginative study of a character - which had a significant market appeal at the time.
.
It may come as a surprise to many that this impressive 250-work collection, which includes eleven paintings and two drawings by Rembrandt, as well as the only mature-period Vermeer in private hands, was only formed in the last 14 years. As @Sothebys Magazine puts it, collectors Tom Kaplan and his wife were “able to amass one of the greatest art collections of our time at warp speed.” Until 2003, the Kaplans owned an important collection of French and Italian Modern design furniture, but not a single Dutch painting - unaware that top Museum-quality Old Master paintings were available for sale.

To celebrate #AsiaWeekNY, here is Giovanni Bellini’s sumptuous and bacchanalian Feast of the Gods (@ngadc), painted in 1514 with later additions by Titian (in the background) and Dosso Dossi. It includes among the earliest representations of Chinese blue-and-white porcelain in the history of European painting. Alfonso I d’Este, one of the most important art patrons of 16th Century Italy, commissioned it for his camerino in the Palazzo Ducale, Ferrara. Three striking blue-and-white porcelain bowls - one on the head of the satyr, one in the hands of the adjacent nymph, and one containing fruits on the ground in front of Neptune - are central to the dynamic composition of celebratory deities. These exquisitely patterned vessels were undoubtedly modeled on real objects, made in the Imperial kilns of #Jingdezhen, that Bellini would have seen in Venice or in the courtly collection of the Este dukes.
.
Another celebrated Italian Renaissance painting incorporating Ming Dynasty porcelain is Mantegna's Adoration of the Magi (@GettyMuseum) painted, even earlier, in ca. 1500. Although blue-and-white porcelain frequently appear in 16th and 17th century European paintings when direct trade routes were established between China and Europe, in the 15th century they were extremely rare luxuries for to the ruling classes, trickling into Europe only through Middle-Eastern intermediaries.
.
The Este were avid collectors, whose inventories included Chinese porcelains since the reign of Ercole I (1431-1505). Bellini’s patron, Alfonso I, even attempted to manufacture Chinese porcelains in Ferrara, opening a workshop in 1519, to produce them. One can occasionally find high quality blue-and-white Ming porcelains on the market, such as the sales during @asiaweekny .
.
The picture was intended to be displayed alongside Titian’s Worship of Venus (1518-19, now in @MuseoPrado) and Bacchus and Ariadne (1520–23, @National_Gallery).
.

Pierre Bergé, partner of Yves Saint Laurent, passed at the age of 86 today... Their incredible eye and vision created one of the most exquisite collections of the century, the sale of which I was lucky enough to witness. To stand in their masterpiece-filled apartment on rue Babylone. Matisse, Mondrian, Leger, Brancusi, Warhol, Eileen Gray...the list is endless. This auction changed my life, my love and my outlook on collecting. Monsieur Bergé reunited with Yves once more. #collectionyvessaintlaurentetpierreberge #pierrebergé #paris #auctionofthecentury #greatcollectors #rip #grandpalais #ruebabylone #collecting #partnership

Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza assembled, with his wife, Carmen, one of the most remarkable collections in Europe formed after the Second World War. Their collection is now on view in @museothyssen. He acquired this masterpiece by John Constable, The Lock, in 1990, at @Sothebys where it set a world record for the artist, selling for over £10.7 million. Nicholas Hall was then closely involved with its subsequent sale at @ChristiesInc in 2012 for a new world record price of £22,441,250.
.
Baron Thyssen lived for a long time at Warren Hastings’ house, Daylesford in Gloucestershire. On one of his frequent visits to @Colnaghi1760 we tried to interest him, unsuccessfully, in a Stubbs Portrait of Warren Hastings on Horseback. He did, however, buy numerous other Old Masters by artists such as El Greco, Rembrandt, Saenredam, and Canaletto. In doing this he was building on a collection already formed by his father which included masterpieces by Durer, Memling, Holbein, and Caravaggio among others. However, the Baron amplified the Old Master collection with the finest group of classical American paintings in Europe as well as Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, Expressionists and Post War art.
.
When Baron Thyssen bought Old Masters they were often with a modern slant. The Canaletto is an impressionistic early work, the Saenredam has an austerity which feels minimalist. Constable too is hailed as a father of the modern landscape and a key influence on the Impressionists and beyond. He was one of Lucien Freud’s favorite painters who said of him “I may be quite wrong, but I can't see Van Gogh's Boots without Constable behind them.” The Lock is one of only nine finished ‘Six-footers’ as Constable’s @royalacademyarts presentation pieces were known. It is the only one in private hands. A magnificent full-scale sketch was recently sold at @ChristiesInc for £14 million, only one bid above the reserve. It is a curious fact that, despite Constable’s art-historical importance, his works do not attract as much competitive bidding at auction as they deserve.

'Charles Towneley in his Sculpture Gallery' (1782). Johann Zoffany (German, 1733-1810). Zoffany was a German neoclassical painter, active mainly in England. His works appear in many prominent British National galleries such as the National Gallery, London, the Tate Gallery and in the Royal Collection.
...
Of Bohemian origin, Johan Zoffany was born in Frankfurt on 13 March 1733. He undertook an initial period of study in a sculptor's workshop in Ellwangen in the 1740s (possibly at the workshop of sculptor Melchior Paulus) and later at Regensburg with the artist Martin Speer. In 1750, he travelled to Rome, entering the studio of Agostino Masucci. In autumn 1760 he arrived in England, initially finding work with the clockmaker Stephen Rimbault painting vignettes for his clocks. By 1764 he was enjoying the patronage of the royal family, King George III and Queen Charlotte, for his charmingly informal scenes such as Queen Charlotte and Her Two Eldest Children (1765), in which the queen is shown at her toilette, with her eldest children, inside Buckingham House, and another, outdoors, with her children and her brothers. He also was popular with the Austrian Imperial family and in 1776 was created "Baron" by the Empress Maria Theresa.
...
A founding member of the new Royal Academy in 1768, Zoffany enjoyed great popularity for his society and theatrical portraits, painting many prominent actors and actresses, in particular David Garrick, the most famous actor of his day – Garrick as Hamlet and Garrick as King Lear – often in costume. He was a master of what has been called the "theatrical conversation piece", a sub-set of the "conversation piece" genre that arose with the middle classes in the 18th century. (The conversation piece – or conversazione – was a relatively small, though not necessarily inexpensive, informal group portrait, often of a family group or a circle of friends. This genre developed in the Netherlands and France and became popular in Britain from about 1720.) Zoffany is regarded as the true creator and master of this genre.

The grand house of Kingston Lacy is home to one of the finest collections of art in an English country house, counting paintings by Valáquez, Tintoretto and Van Dyke amongst its treasures. One of the men responsible for amassing such fine contents was William John Bankes. In August 1841, he was caught in a compromising circumstance with a guardsman in Green Park. Faced with the death penalty (sodomy, as it was termed, was a capital offense in Britain until 1861), he was forced to flea to Venice, leaving his beloved house forever. His enduring passion in exile was designing, commissioning and collecting works for the house he loved - a house he was only able to see once more, in secret, before he died... #kingstonlacy #nationaltrust #predjudiceandpride #greatcollectors greatcollectors #countryhouse #dorset #royaloakfoundation

'Charles Towneley in his Sculpture Gallery' (1782). Johann Zoffany (German, 1733-1810). Zoffany was a German neoclassical painter, active mainly in England. His works appear in many prominent British National galleries such as the National Gallery, London, the Tate Gallery and in the Royal Collection.
...
Of Bohemian origin, Johan Zoffany was born in Frankfurt on 13 March 1733. He undertook an initial period of study in a sculptor's workshop in Ellwangen in the 1740s (possibly at the workshop of sculptor Melchior Paulus) and later at Regensburg with the artist Martin Speer. In 1750, he travelled to Rome, entering the studio of Agostino Masucci. In autumn 1760 he arrived in England, initially finding work with the clockmaker Stephen Rimbault painting vignettes for his clocks. By 1764 he was enjoying the patronage of the royal family, King George III and Queen Charlotte, for his charmingly informal scenes such as Queen Charlotte and Her Two Eldest Children (1765), in which the queen is shown at her toilette, with her eldest children, inside Buckingham House, and another, outdoors, with her children and her brothers. He also was popular with the Austrian Imperial family and in 1776 was created "Baron" by the Empress Maria Theresa.

YVES SAINT-LAURENT ET PIERRE BERGE // Christie’s Paris, February 2009 // The sale of the century // Made €374 million in 700 lots over 3 days // The collection formed by the shared and rigorous taste of two men, neither of whom had inherited a single painting, bronze or piece of furniture, and yet over 50 years together formed the most astonishing assembly of artworks in the most beautiful Parisian surroundings. At the front we see Foggini's cast of the Laocoon.

In our first post from our series on great art collectors, we commemorate David Rockefeller, who passed away at the age of 101 on Monday, 20th March. A lifelong patron of the arts, Rockefeller began collecting art under the mentorship of Alfred Barr, founding director of MoMA, New York. He went on to amass an extensive collection of some 15,000 works of art, objet d’art, and antiquities. Having donated his parent’s collection to New York’s Asia Society, he also founded the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection. In 1994, MoMA held an exhibition on a selection of Rockefeller’s collection, with twenty-one works of art given by the patron to the museum. On the occasion of his 100th birthday, he pledged a $100 million bequest to MoMA, then the largest donation in the museum’s history. Here, we present ‘White Centre (Yellow, Pink, and Lavender Rose)’ by Mark Rothko in 1950. The painting resided in Rockefeller’s collection for forty-seven years until its sale at Sotheby’s, New York, in 2007 for record-breaking amount. Rockefeller said, ‘I think of Art as the highest level of creativity. To me, it is one of the greatest sources of enjoyment.’ #GreatCollectors #ArtCollection #CollectingArt #Rockefeller #Rothko #MoMA #ArtPatron #AbstractExpressionism #NewYork #ModernMasters #ArtAdvisory #Dellasposa #DellasposaFineArt #DellasposaGC1

Contemplation in the Still Life section of Elton John's beautiful and most impressive Modernist photography exhibition, 'The Radical Eye'. Voraciously collecting over the past 25 years, this is the first time to view over 150 of his images by some of the greats from the 1920's-50's.
