Visual Resources, Volume XXXIII, Nos. 1-2, 2017

The latest number of the journal Visual Resources, published by Routledge/Taylor and Francis, presents a Special Issue Guest-Edited by MEAGHAN CLARKE and FRANCESCO VENTRELLA (University of Sussex), entitled ‘Women’s Expertise and the Culture of Connoisseurship’.
This issue has many articles that may interest the historian of the art market (especially appealing for those concerned with the linkages between the market and art historiography), such as ‘Mrs. Berenson, Mrs. Gardner and Miss Toplady: Connoisseurship, Collecting and Commerce in London (1898–1905)‘ by MACHTELT ISRAELS, and  ‘“This Feminine Scholar”: Belle da Costa Greene and the Shaping of J.P. Morgan’s Legacy‘, by art market scholar FLAMINIA GENNARI SANTORI.

THE EXHIBITION

TICKETS

This spring, the Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung will take a look back at a chapter in its history that has rarely been a focus of attention to date: the Nazi period and the acquisitions made during those years. With the aid of twelve selected objects, the exhibition will offer insights into the history of the museum in the years 1933 to 1945 and tell the stories of the people intimately linked with the twelve works. Since 2001, the Städel Museum has been examining its collections with regard to artworks whose owners were deprived of them in connection with Nazi persecution. It was thus one of the first museums in Germany to embark on this task.

In the spring of 2015, its provenance research activities were expanded through the addition of a comprehensive project supported by the German Lost Art Foundation and the city of Frankfurt am Main: the systematic examination of the Liebieghaus Skulpturensammlung holdings. The special exhibition will now present this initiative’s current research results by way of a tour through the sculpture collection’s three main departments – Antiquity, Middle Ages and Renaissance to Neoclassicism.

Literaturhaus Berlin, 22.06. – 16.07.2017

Peers praised the highly successful books of the art critic and critic Julius Meier-Graefe as a “new school of seeing”. In his writings, he focused on modern painting, sensitized the aesthetic re-evaluation and literary verve of the German public for French art of the nineteenth century and decisively shaped the canon of today’s art history.
