Art News | Fish: 21st Century Design Essentials | Scoop.it

A landscape painting by Renoir, purportedly bought by Marcia Fuqua at a flea market for $7, belongs to the Baltimore Museum of Art, from which it had been stolen in 1951, accoriding to a January 10, 2014 ruling from the federal court in Virginia.

 

So ended a wild tale that began July 27, 2012 when Fuqua brought On the Shore of the Seine, to the Potomack Company auction house in Arlington, Virginia, saying she found it in a box of random items at a Shenandoah Valley flea market. She made an appointment with the auction house because of the “Renoir” plaque on the frame, according to Elizabeth Wainstein, the director of the auction house.

Potomack determined the work was authentic and checked the Art Loss Register and the FBI’s stolen art website to confirm that it had not been reported lost or stolen. A spokeswoman for the museum points out that the FBI was not concentrating on stolen art in the 1950s and registers of lost art did not exist.

Petes Fresh Fish Prints's insight:

I just thought this was really interesting to anyone who appreciates art of any kind. Imagine? Buying a real, honest-to-goodness Renoir for 7 bucks at a flea market? Well, some folks have all the luck …

Joseph K. Levene's curator insight, January 23, 2014 2:35 AM

The Judge maintained his ruling is based on fact; the Baltimore Museum of Art owns the #Renoir painting On the Shore of the Seine as good title was never transferred by the Baltimore Museum since the work was stolen.

 

Clearly, Ms. Fuqua's flea market tale was pure fabrication.

Fountains's curator insight, November 11, 2013 11:13 AM

A new series of water fountains have been introduced. This series uses the idea and technique of a custom logo fountain on a small scale by applying a small logo onto a tabletop fountain. Unlike a custom logo, these fountains will have a fairly low price point because the scene will be standard. This standardization process greatly reduces the labor cost of generating a logo proof for each logo made. The fountains can also be crafted much quicker without the need to re-calibrate etching equipment used in logo creation. A single stencil can be used many times for multiple fountains without having to make a new one each time as is necessary when a customer requests a personalized logo.

Where the Nazis Hid Their Art

Where the Nazis Hid Their Art | Fish: 21st Century Design Essentials | Scoop.it

High in the Bavarian Alps, a white castle with soaring turrets overlays a scene of rolling green meadows and snow-capped mountains straight out of a storybook watercolor. The setting is so idyllic it served as Walt Disney’s inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s castle.

But the world-famous Neuschwanstein Castle, nearly straddling the German-Austrian border, once played host to something more sinister than the fairytale setting it inspired. During World War II, the Nazis, aiming to amass a world-class art collection for Hitler’s dream of a “Führermuseum,” stashed thousands of paintings inside the castle. When the war ended, it also closed a 12-year period now recognized as history’s largest art heist—raking in priceless masterpieces from the likes of Michelangelo, da Vinci and Vermeer—and the recovery efforts were tasked to an allied unit known as the Monuments Men.
