L'Impressionnisme et les peintres impressionnistes 100 Ideas That Changed Art by Maria Popova From cave paintings to the internet, or how art and cultural ideology shape one another. On the heels of yesterday’s 100 Ideas That Changed Photography comes 100 Ideas That Changed Art (public library) — a succinct account of the most influential developments in the history of art, from cave paintings to the internet, compiled by art historian and broadcaster Michael Bird. Bird writes in the introduction: What does it mean to ‘change art’? On Trajan’s Column in Rome significant moments in the story of Trajan’s Dacian campaign are grouped to align vertically, so that they make sense from several standpoints when viewed from the ground. Whereas stories are diachronic — they take time in the telling and involve the unfolding of events through time — visual images work synchronically, being interpreted almost instantaneously by the viewer. Polykleitos was credited with 'the idea that statues should stand firmly on one leg only.' Images and captions courtesy of Laurence King

La Tribune de l'Art Why Virtual Galleries Could Help Shape a Different Future for Artists | Artsy Shark by Chris Davies Virtual art galleries may be an emerging concept for many, but there are several good reasons why these could provide an exciting new avenue for artists working in all mediums. Ever-advancing technologies, combined with radical changes in consumer trends and how art collections are curated, could all point the way towards an exciting digital future for creatives. But what are these changes, and how can artists get involved? What is a Virtual Art Gallery? A virtual art gallery is more than just a website featuring images of artists’ work. Examples include: New York’s New Museum This innovative gallery has been commissioning artists specifically for its New Art Online series for the past few years. This latter project involved turning the museum’s collection of sculptures into interactive 3D scans that can be viewed, appreciated and downloaded by anyone, regardless of where they are in the world.

The Real and the Virtual Art Museum Screenshot of Google Art Project featuring Vincent Van Gogh's The Starry Night So much of the press and discussion around the Google Art Project has focused on comparing the experience of the virtual gallery with the real, in-person experience. The question seems to be, will the Google Art Project replace or somehow despoil the experience of the museum visit? But I think this commentary overlooks an important part of the Google Art Project: the way it allows users to—in a way—remix and share their experience of so many great works of art. At the recommendation of a colleague and fellow teacher, I began reading On Beauty and Being Just by Elaine Scarry, Walter M. We’ve all felt this, right? James McNeill Whistler. For me, what is most pleasurable about the Google Art Project is how it lets me do what Scarry describes. So what do you think?

The world's best secret art galleries | The Independent Matt Carey-Williams International Director, Haunch of Venison, London IBID Projects is located on Hoxton Square, and stands in the shadow of the much larger gallery there, White Cube 2 – sometimes interesting things take place in the shadows. The space is deliberately unfinished and this physical rawness allows for an interesting dialogue between space and object which heightens our experience of their exhibitions. IBID Projects, 35 Hoxton Square, London N1. Simon de Pury Auctioneer, Philips de Pury & Co Raoul La Roche was a young banker from Basel who moved to Paris in 1911.
