"A study
A study is an exercise painting that helps the painter better understand the object he or she paints. It is simple and clear, like sample letters in a school student’s copybook. Rough and ready, not detailed, with every stroke being to the point, a study is a proven method of touching the world and making a catalogue of it. However, in art history, the status of the study is vague and open to interpretation. Despite its auxiliary role, a study is sometimes viewed as something far more significant than the finished piece. Then, within an impressive frame, it is placed on a museum wall.
So, when does a study remain a mere drill, and when can we call it an artwork in its own right, full of life and having artistic value? Read more
of family portraits is enough to convert a man to the doctrine of reincarnation," said Holmes, observing the portrait of Hugo Baskerville. Arthive has collected 10 portraits evoking similar thoughts.

A Bruegel can be quickly spotted as a Bruegel, but which Bruegel? Even the seasoned experts admit that it is sometimes difficult for them to make head or tail of the works and family ties within this dynasty without looking up their family tree. Six artists sharing the same surname have been creating paintings for 150 years. They copied each other's works and signed them with each other's names…

The Museo del Prado in Madrid presented The Triumph of Death by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1562-1563) after a thorough restoration. The painting depicts a theme frequently used by medieval authors of the North: the play of the Death. After a one-year set-up, the artwork has taken its place of honour next to another Bruegel treasure, The Wine of Saint Martin’s Day , acquired by the museum…

В Вене Иероним Босх стал персонажем театральной постановки

Историк искусства Кэролайн (её играет актриса Петра Стадуан) летит в Вену на конгресс, посвященный Босху. Но как назло застряёт в аэропорту. Все рейсы в Вену отменены. Слёт босховедов (впрочем, чрезвычайно скучное мероприятие) пройдёт без Кэролайн. А она вместе с другими такими же неудачниками «поправляет настроение» в буфете аэропорта и после очередного «дринка» начинает нести профессиональную «пургу» про Босха. Дальше Кэролайн ждёт путешествие в прошлое, в Голландию конца XV – начала XVI веков, где она лично встретится с Босхом... Это шоу, полное юмора и изысканных лингвистических игр, поставил режиссер и сценарист Жером Юно (Jérôme Junod) в Театральном музее Вены. Оно будет идти до февраля 2018 года.

Many assume that once a collection, especially the one comprised mostly of Old Master paintings, has graced a museum’s walls for a century, everything that can be learned already has already been studied. But the exhibition Old Masters Now: Celebrating the Johnson Collection  at the  Philadelphia Museum of Art turns this theory on its head. New technical and art-historical research on eight of…

They called Bruegel  “rustic”, while Bosch  could rightly be named “elegant” or “exquisite”, because everything he created was extremely mature and flawless. However, he could have been named “horrible” just as well, as his fantasy gave rise to really strange things.
