Chicago exhibition features works from artists of the Gilded Age Vizcaya Museum and Gardens has loaned to the Art Institute of Chicago a 1903, oil on canvas portrait of James Deering (1859–1925), Vizcaya’s creator. The portrait by Swedish painter Anders Zorn (1860–1920) is on view in the new exhibition John Singer Sargent and Chicago’s Gilded Age.“Zorn was a contemporary to Sargent,” says Remko Jansonius, Deputy Director of Collections and Curatorial Affairs for Vizcaya. “Both artists captured members of the Deering family in the early 20th century.”During his lifetime, Zorn was a successful and popular painter in Sweden, where he was born; in France, where he had a studio in Paris for several years; and in the United States, which he visited on seven occasions. His first journey to the United States was in 1893, when he exhibited at the Swedish art section of the world’s fair in Chicago.

Certain art pieces are imbued with so much history, culture, emotion, and life that even the most exact replica couldn’t pin down their exact essence. For the casual observer, this might be irrelevant, and therefore a search for their original source – pointless. But for many true art lovers, like myself, experiencing an original in person is like looking at the world from the same, unique vantage point from which the artist once saw something nobody else could.The Starry Night hardly needs an introduction, but here’s ours anyway: Vincent Van Gogh’s most signature masterpiece and an international symbol of art; a beautiful island of serenity, floating amidst a sea of torment inside a mad genius’ mind. It actually depicts Van Gogh’s view from the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum near Saint-Remy-de-Provence where the artist checked himself in after suffering a mental breakdown and famously cutting off his own ear.

This year,the State of Israel is turning 70. For a country, younger than some baby boomers, it has certainly made every year of its newly found freedom count. The State of Israel strides toward becoming the epitome of agricultural and high-tech innovation. But the industrial landscape is not the only global picture in which the young state has firmly positioned itself. Perhaps the country’s most tangible sign of all-around progress is the fact that its citizens’ aspirations spread far beyond the capitalistic world and into the artistic one.

URBAN ARTS - FROM THE STREETS TO THE MARKET

URBAN ARTS - FROM THE STREETS TO THE MARKET

Visual Arts

Published 11/28/17

Street art, or Urban art, refers to visual art that’s created and displayed in public locations. It’s often unsanctioned, organic artwork, generated outside of the context of traditional art venues. Artists choose to use streets as their gallery, communicating directly with the public at large, free from any constraints. These works often depict socially relevant content, infused with aesthetic value, to attract attention and empower an artistic revolution. While Urban Art can be freely found on the streets and enjoyed by all, urban artists also work with galleries, selling their pieces at auction for record prices. Let’s take an in-depth look at this global phenomenon.Street art gained popularity during the New York graffiti boom, peaking with the spray-painted full-car subway murals of the 1980’s centered in the Bronx. But the movement now encompasses many other techniques beyond graffiti, including stencils, wheat-pasted poster art, sticker art, spray bombs, various street …

The Sagamore Hotel Miami Beach is best known for its Art Deco exterior and floor-to-ceiling art. Located at 1671 Collins Avenue in the heart of South Beach, the hotel was originally coined “The Art Hotel.” Historically, the Sagamore has been a classic destination for both locals and tourists alike since the Art Deco District was created in the 1940s.

10 Reasons to Visit Museums

Visual Arts

Published 5/2/16

One of the great benefits of visiting museums is that it allows you to change your perspectives and place yourself in the shoes of the artist. Like the Impressionist movement of 1872 – 1892, where artists, such as Claude Monet moved away from painting exactly what they saw to capturing their impressions of a scene, each work of art opens a doorway into the artist’s soul and allows you to explore what they felt, rather than merely observed. Every piece of art tells a unique story, and by studying them, you can experience the same emotions the work’s creator did. …

Combining traditional techniques with an abstract twist, Pasta’s art has captured the spirit and energy of his favorite subject, marine life. To him, as to others, the sea represented an escape from what he saw was a dismal way of urban life. Growing up in an Italian neighborhood in Brooklyn, Pasta inherited his nickname from his older brother, Nick, and was often being called “Pasta Fazul” by friends, because of his heavy Italian accent and their difficulty in pronouncing his real name, Panteleo. As a young teenager in 1970, Pasta helped persuade his family to relocate to South Florida, the epitome of sun and sea. …
