Ken Johnson has written an interesting article, a small survey of sorts, entitled “The Uncluttered Look Has Its Day” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times looking at The Art Dealers Association of America show “The Art Show” (clever title!) at the Park Avenue Armory in New York (through Sunday at the Park Avenue Armory, 643 Park Avenue, at 67th Street; (212) 616-3930, artdealers.org).  And, though it is clearly the most conservative of the shows in New York’s unofficial “Art Week”, that doesn’t mean you won’t find some wonderful art.

Roberta Smith has written an interesting and lively article entitled “Free-for-All Spirit Breezes Into a Vast Art Fair” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times looking at the vast Armory Show (through Sunday 6 March 2011 at Piers 92 and 94, 12th Avenue at West 55th Street, New York City; (212) 645-6440, thearmoryshow.com) of modern and contemporary art in New York. 

Smith, in her perceptive and well-informed style, concludes, “Beware of your assumptions, historical and otherwise. The present is wild and messy, and the past is not exactly neat.”

Clearly a must-see.

Excellent slide show, here.

Holland Cotter has written a very interesting article entitled “When Picasso Changed His Tune” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times looking at the exhibition “Picasso: Guitars 1912-1914” at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City (February 13 through June 6; (212) 708-9400; moma.org) and the origins of the Cubist movement.  The exhibition brings together work never seen since leaving Picasso’s studio, rare, privately owned work and work owned by various international art museums to create a truly moving and masterful exhibition.  Cotter is, and we all should be, on cloud nine.

More than simply “a must see”.

Excellent slide show, here.

Doreen Carvajal has written a short article entitled “On (Surprisingly Quiet) Parisian Night, a Picasso and a Matisse Go Out the Window” in the Europe section of The New York Times describing what (little) is known about the theft Wednesday night from the Paris Museum of Modern Art of five paintings from the museum’s permanent collection: “Dove With Green Peas” by Picasso, “La Pastorale” by Matisse, “Olive Tree Near l’Estaque” by Georges Braque, “Woman With a Fan” by Amedeo Modigliani and “Still Life With Chandeliers” by Fernand Léger.  A (very) private collector?  Wonderful gifts for Mothers’ Day?

Picasso Painting Sets Auction Record at $106.5 Million

Posted by the editors on Wednesday, 5 May 2010

Carol Vogel has written a short article entitled “At $106.5 Million, a Picasso Sets an Auction Record” in the Art & Design section of The New York Times discussing the sale at Christie’s of the painting “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” which Picasso painted in a single day in 1932.  Vogel also touches on the other sales of the event, including two sculptures by Alberto Giacometti, a painting by Edvard Munch and others.  The last time the Picasso’s “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” changed hands, in 1951, it sold for $19,800.  Is it inflation, or is the painting that much better today than it was then?
