A List of Virtual Art Galleries & Museums #1 - in the UK

You'll have seen this..... "Virtual Museum" hurtled up the search query rankings to become a TOP TREND in 2020 for virtual activities So I thought I'd make a list of Virtual Museums - for your delectation over the Covid / Christmas Break (take your pick - says woman sat in a 'Deep Purple' zone in Tier 4 London - who's going absolutely nowhere in the foreseeable future).

Here's some of the things I've learned through this process: some art galleries and museums are using the word "virtual" to rechristen their existing offering on the website. British Museum: Prints and Drawings - The Solution! Yesterday I highlighted the problems with accessing the Virtual Gallery of the Prints and Drawings held in the permanent collection of the British Museum.

In 2011 I was invited by Demetrio Paparoni, my former editor at the Italian art journal tema celeste, to write a catalogue essay about Francesco Polenghi, an artist whom I had never met (Francesco Polenghi, Skira, 2011).

What a Painter Taught Me

Polenghi lived in Milan. Such assignments, which provide a welcome opportunity for travel, are always demanding. They entail entering an unfamiliar studio, looking at the artwork, listening to the artist discuss it, taking mental notes, and then writing about the art. Often it’s revealing to see what is on display: books, reproductions of Old Master or other artworks. It is the critic’s job to contextualize the works, to define their place in art history and identify their distinctive values.

The art critic is always split between a critical self, who watches and often censors reactions, and a receptive self, whose response to the art is unhampered by intellectual reflection. Short Films on the Svalbard Ark project — Seed Cultures Archive. Art UK. ‘Spirals’, Louise Bourgeois, 2005. Spirals is a suite of twelve oil-based woodcut prints on Japanese paper.

‘Spirals’, Louise Bourgeois, 2005

The prints are arranged in a grid formation with three rows of four prints. Each print depicts a spiral, with nine of the prints using red ink, two using black ink and one using blue ink. The spirals range in shape and size, with some of the spirals contained within the limits of the paper and others continuing beyond the picture plane. Ian Boyden Studios.

Robert Mangold's Emotional Optics

For more than 50 years, the different and surprising visual dances he has established within this circumscribed vocabulary have engaged both the eye and mind. Accepting that a painting is a flat surface projecting slightly from the wall, Mangold has never turned his work into an object, as did many of his contemporaries, from Jo Baer and Robert Ryman to Frank Stella and Dorothea Rockburne.

Avec ses mille dessins et quelque cinq mille estampes, le Musée Atger, niché au cœur des bâtiments historiques de la Faculté de médecine, est le plus ancien musée de Montpellier.

Musée Atger - Université de Montpellier

Sa présence inattendue en ces lieux résulte de la générosité et du choix délibéré du collectionneur montpelliérain Xavier Atger (1758-1833), amateur éclairé et passionné d’œuvres d’art. La vitalité intellectuelle de l’Ecole de médecine où s’est constitué une bibliothèque exceptionnelle au début du 19e siècle, explique ce choix : la bibliothèque universitaire Historique de Médecine assume d’ailleurs depuis l’origine la gestion et la conservation du musée. Mais Atger veut aussi, dans une vision humaniste de la médecine partagée par les professeurs de l’école, permettre aux étudiants de s’ouvrir à l’art et en particulier d’étudier le dessin, technique essentielle dans leur formation et surtout moyen inégalé d’exercer leur esprit d’observation.

Design nerds better sit down for this: Harvard Art Museums just unveiled a 32,000-work-strong online collection of objects related to Bauhaus, no doubt last century’s most influential school of art and design (and host to the best costume parties.)

Originally based in three German cities, Bauhaus closed its doors under Nazis pressure in the ‘30s, after which founder Walter Gropius immigrated to Boston and served as chairman of Harvard’s architecture school until retirement. The release of this collection marks the beginning of a broader celebration in 2019, marking the 100th anniversary of the school’s founding. The repository, filled with works by Bauhaus teachers and students, as well as those inspired by Bauhaus pedagogy, is deliciously searchable.
