"Ampia rassegna dedicata al gioiello dei designer italiani, a cura di Alba Cappellieri e Marco Romanelli. La mostra percorre un arco temporale che va dagli anni Cinquanta a oggi, attraversa stili e momenti differenti, dal Razionalismo al Post Moderno fino al Minimalismo: un percorso con salti generazionali che includono grandi maestri e giovani designer, produzione industriale e pezzi unici. L’ipotesi curatoriale si compone di due parti: una rassegna storica con numerosi progetti inediti presentati per la prima volta a Milano e una sezione con gioielli progettati e realizzati ad hoc per la mostra." - See more at: http://www.triennale.it/en/exhibitions/present/2538-il-design-italiano-incontra-il-gioiello#sthash.D5IMFBTX.dpuf

"It is rare for a town off the classic tourist trail like Vicenza to stage such an illustrious exhibition as Raffaello verso Picasso, but this show is definitely going to put it on the cultural map. It is spectacular walking through the Grand Hall of the Basilica, where curator Marco Goldin has put together a stunning collection of 85 paintings, spanning Old Masters such as Botticelli, Titian and Giorgione, Rembrandt, El Greco and Caravaggio, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Renoir and Cézanne, through to modernist paintings by Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Andrew Wyeth. While the exhibition will run until the end of January, the Basilica Palladiana will become a permanent venue for cultural events, and there are several newly opened museums that make it worth spending a long weekend in Vicenza, rather than just stopping off for a day trip to whizz round the 20 palaces, villas and the visionary Teatro Olimpico that mark the official Palladio itinerary."

"Abraham Roentgen (1711–1793) and his son David (1743–1807) were among 18th century’s most celebrated cabinetmaking. From around 1742 to its closing in the early 1800s their innovative designs were combined with intriguing mechanical devices to revolutionize traditional French and English furniture types. From its headquarters in Germany the workshop employed novel marketing and production techniques to serve an international clientele.Extravagant Inventions: The Princely Furniture of the Roentgens at the Metropolitan Museum of Art features sixty to sixty-five pieces of furniture and clocks—several of which have never before been lent for exhibition complemented by paintings and prints that depict these unrivaled masterpieces in contemporary interiors.
Extravagant Inventions is on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City through January 27, 2013."
"SAINT LOUIS, MO.- This fall the saint louis art museum presents Federico Barocci: Renaissance Master. Opening October 21, 2012, this international exhibition showcases a trove of exceptionally beautiful paintings and studies, the majority of which have never before been seen in this country, gathered from more than 35 institutions worldwide. Federico Barocci was one of the most innovative Italian artists of the second half of the 16th century and was highly sought after by both religious and secular patrons. A major influence on European masters such as Peter Paul Rubens, Barocci's art combines the beauty of the High Renaissance and the dynamism of the Baroque. In addition to his refined paintings, Barocci completed thousands of preparatory studies (over 1,500 survive), including pastel drawings and oil sketches— a technique he pioneered."

"It's one of those questions one is not supposed to raise in France, like so many others concerning that period. But what did happen in the art world during the occupation? Resistance, collaboration or cautious withdrawal? To simplify matters, one might say there was one painter for each stance: Picasso joined the Resistance, Derain collaborated and Matisse kept a low profile. Others such as Breton, Duchamp, Ernst, Léger, Masson or Mondrian sought exile in New York.
L'Art en Guerre, France 1938-47 is at Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, France, until 17 February"
