In 1963, Alma Thomas set out to turn Henri Matisse on his head. Two years before, in 1961, she attended a show of Henri Matisse’s late-career gouaches at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. There, she saw The Snail (1952–53), in which cut-and-pasted squares of colorful paper are arranged in a spiral-like shape, abstractly alluding to a gastropod without ever outright showing it.

Thomas got to work, effectively recreating the iconic Matisse gouache with a twist. Her version, titled Watusi (Hard Edge), likewise contains a jumble of rectangles, rhombuses, and squares. Look closely, however, and you realize that Thomas has rotated Matisse’s composition 90 degrees. The medium has changed, from gouache to acrylic on canvas, and arguably, the subject matter has changed, too. Judging by Thomas’s title, no longer does the work refer to an animal. Now, it may call to mind a dance style popular in

Douglas Chrismas, a longtime Los Angeles gallerist whose reputation began to dim around a decade ago after allegations of suspicious business dealings, was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigations on Tuesday on charges that he embezzled more than $260,000 from the bankruptcy estate of his now-defunct Ace Gallery.

Chrismas is currently facing three charges of embezzlement. If convicted of all three, the 77-year-old dealer could face a sentence of 15 years in federal prison. He has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges and is expected to face trial in September.

A now-unsealed indictment from March accused Chrismas of embezzling $264,595 from the bankruptcy estate. The indictment, filed in the Central District Court of California, alleged that he embezzled $100,000 owed to the gallery as part of a purchase of an artwork from a third party, and put that sum toward his own corporation. Chrismas is also accused

The best rap song of all time would have to be from the late 2Pac in his song “Changes”. Glad you enjoyed this virtual visit to Canyonlands National Park in Utah. You would undoubtedly like visiting the other parks in Utah as well. They are all different and interesting. One of the best classical songs sung by Asha Bhonsle, and almost as good as it can get. This number, composed by Ravi, is also an exemplary use of Raag Darbari Kanada to create a very harmonious classical bhajan, thereby showing the variety that can be brought into the songs by the creative genius of the music composers. This is also a very popular Bhajan … Read the rest

Frank Gehry says he aimed to capture the brushstroke effect of Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night in his latest building, making his tower for the Luma Foundation in Arles, France one of many examples of his corny artistic ambitions. Inklings of these are evident even in his sketches—impassioned, nearly illegible scribbles more likely to be exhibited in a museum than referenced by a contractor or client. Gehry is famous for privileging form over function, often to the point of controversy. In Cleveland and in Cambridge, his unconventional roof shapes have produced dangerous avalanches on snowy days. And his sinuous museums have been accused of upstaging the artworks they’re meant to show—to which Gehry’s friend Julian Schnabel has retorted, “Maybe that art isn’t good enough.”

American painter and print maker, Frank Stella (born May 1936) specializes in the art of ‘Post-painterly Abstraction’ and ‘Minimalism.’ He has been a torchbearer of these innovative modern techniques that refuse to follow the conformist art. Di Meola’s solo albums are all worth having, in my opinion his best is Elegant Gypsy from 1977. picplzthumbs It displays all the best of Al’s fast playing and melodic sensibilities. While the album is clearly a rock first and jazz second album, Al also fuses elements of Latin and Flamenco music into the sound, with break neck guitar runs and acoustic clean styles that meld seamlessly. Released in 1969, the “Yellow Submarine” album was actually considered a contractual obligation to go along … Read the rest

BACK when the speed of PCs was measured in megahertz, most serious graphics design work was done on powerful and expensive workstations. Wives love sexual confessions from their husbands. Tell her how much the idea of a real-life threesome turns you on. While you make love, describe for her, in detail, how you imagine it happening in reality. Make it sexy and crude. Women love words and love to fantasize. Many great acoustic songs have also been created by artists more traditionally thought of as heavier rock musicians. For example Led Zeppelin used the acoustic guitar to great effect in songs such as Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You. Extreme gained worldwide success by writing an acoustic ballad – More … Read the rest

In 2005, Banksy acquired a piece of Israel’s West Bank Barrier and used it for a “treasure hunt.” The first person to find the rock and email him with the secret word he wrote on it—”Spike”—would get to keep the work.

The piece, titled Spike, was found in Palestine and has since traded hands a few times. Now, it is heading to auction—not as a physical object but as an NFT.

Valuart, a new NFT platform, launched with the auction of Spike on July 22. Bidding will continue until July 30 online. Notably, the elusive street artist artist is not involved in the minting or sale of the work. Instead, the Italian opera singer Vittorio Grigolo, who owns Spike and cofounded Valuart, was the one who worked with the platform to create the NFT.
