What One Mysterious, Easily Overlooked German Painting Taught Me About How to Visit a Museum in the Age of Blockbusters A Marauder stands for the best-case fate for the typical piece of art in a museum—which then also makes it stand for the typical condition of “Art” when you strip away the myth of its transparent timelessness. That fate is not to vanish. It endures. But it’s also not to inspire lasting ecstasies of interpretation or to summon crowds. Instead, it is to be present but not present, lurking in the shadows, waiting for the moment when it might actually be seen and known.

Below; a work by internationally collected artist Diego Voci with similar expression and depth in its interpretation. To see more visit: https://www.pinterest.com/diegovoci/old-men-and-more-diegovocitm/

MET GETS LOAN OF DA VINCI

“For Leonardo, a painter’s most ambitious goal was to convey a composition with convincing emotion,” said exhibition curator Carmen Bambach. “Few paintings in the history of Western art can elicit such a powerful psychological reaction.” – #ARTNEWS: https://news.artnet.com/exhibitions/leonardo-st-jerome-metropolitan-museum-1594957

#FRANCE DINGS TAXPAYERS A BILLION DOLLARS TO SEE #ART

FRANCE-ARCHITECTURE-ART-FONDATION VUITTON

Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris; 

The Louis Vuitton Foundation in #Paris has been called a “gift to France.” But according to some critics, the private museum founded by billionaire art collector Bernard Arnault was a gift that came at a spectacular cost to French taxpayers. Now, an anti-corruption group has filed a complaint accusing the foundation of fraud and tax evasion in the Court of Auditors in #Paris, France’s financial taxation watchdog.

The final construction cost of the Frank Gehry-designed building on the edge of #Paris was nearly €790 million (around $900 million), according to French media, seven times the original estimate when Arnault first announced the project. This figure has been revised significantly upward since the museum first opened in 2014. At that time, the New York Timesreported that the cost was closer to $135 million. (The foundation declined to comment to artnet News about the final cost.)

“FRIENDS” On The Wall & “FRIENDS” On The Couch

October 1972 Coops 36th Birthday

This October 1972 occasion was Coop Cooprider’s 36th birthday (on left).  The friends on the couch are Ingrid and Walter Nermerich, owners of “Alt Landstuhl Restaurant” in Landstuhl, Germany home of the famous Chateaubriand.

Friends” on the wall is an amazing work of art by internationally collected artist Antonio Diego Voci (1920-1985).  The painting was purchased from the private collection of Jawdat and Joy Naffouj, art dealers also in Alt, Landstuhl.  “Friends” has been on Coop and Patti’s walls as they moved around the world ever since.

Coopriders now own about 8 dozen or so Diego art paintings; several are earmarked for selection into a Major Museum Diego Retrospective once a generous benefactor comes forward. 

Three great places to learn more about Diego:

  1. Google “Diego Voci” then click “Images

“Alexander Calder was a virtuoso of do-it-yourself decor and gadgetry. The extent of his ingenuity is currently being revealed in an exhibition at Hauser & Wirth‘s rural Somerset outpost, where a show tells the story of how the American sculptor and his wife transformed a rundown farm in Roxbury, Connecticut, into a whirring hub of creativity.”
