ANNOUNCEMENT

Big News!

By Gregory Cerio

We have important news: our publisher, Don Sparacin, and I have acquired The Magazine ANTIQUES from Art News Media, LLC. We are now independent, and we intend to go places.



THE LATEST



Northern Lights - If fin de siècle Nordiccultural ferment—and contemporary global anxiety—is often summarized in shorthand by Edvard Munch’s The Scream (1893), to enter the former home of Stockholm banker Ernest Thiel (1859–1947), a museum open to the public since 1926, is to dwell in the plush, cool parlors where such paintings were first revered as windows into the human psyche.
Folk art flashbacks - Stacy Hollander recently relinquished her long and laudable curatorial career at the American Folk Art Museum, a constant through the many changes AFAM has seen over the years.
Terpsichorean themes at the ISAW - There is no way to know exactly what dance was like in antiquity. There are accounts of it in writings by ancient authors, such as Lucian (c. 120–192), a satirist of imperial Rome.

  • Connector.

    Gregory Cerio, Editor

    There are some art exhibitions that transcend themselves. That is to say, the fact that the show is taking place is of greater significance than the art on view. Such is the case with A Tale of Two Collections, which opened in mid-March at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson and runs until June 16. The show presents the work of ten artists, including Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Elizabeth Catlett, Romare Bearden, Hale Woodruff, and Benny Andrews. But even with the force of their combined talent and fame, the art is of secondary importance. more...
