I've been longing to be outside and doing anything other than studying endless documentation and drafting "planning speak". This was not helped by 'Word' going wonky and needing to be uninstalled and reinstalled. Did you know there are 25, files in Microsoft Word and it takes hours to uninstall! Anyway, here's this week's challenge.
For a few months, this history will be continued: Old Ideas are relevant for Modern Art The younger works help lead visitors from where our collections end to artworks being produced today. The idea is not a complete history of the art of the previous two centuries but to change our perception of Old Masters and illustrate their relevance for modern sensibilities and conceptions.
The enigmatic Connections between Influence, Talent and Chance Curated by Jasper Sharp, the first group exhibition of modern and contemporary art at the Kunsthistorisches Museum explores the trans-cultural development of ideas and images over the centuries and reveals the enigmatic connections between influence, talent and chance.
Visitors can join this dialogue of artefacts and discover in these confrontations conceptual, thematic or formal affinities that will forever change the way they see both the Picture Gallery and modern art. The temporary proximity of modern and contemporary artworks will allow you to see even works that you know well differently.
Because this is an exhibition on ideas and on where ideas come from. It shows, for example, that artists from different cultures living many centuries later return to the same feelings expressed by an Old Master but frame them quite differently.
The exhibition is intentionally confrontational. What is the Concept behind this Exhibition? It is about art as a source of ideas, and it shows that artists living on different continents and in different centuries always worked with the same ideas.
By confronting the Old Masters with modern art we can help our visitors to experience this too, and bridge the gap between the paintings in the museum and today. Let me put it this way: There are far too many omissions for that.
In 19 galleries of the Picture Gallery we prompt sometimes confrontational, sometimes harmonious conversations that also include context and surroundings.
How did you plan and devise these Encounters? My starting point were the holdings of the Kunsthistorisches Museum: Other dialogues are based more on intuition.
We also had the unique opportunity to commission works especially for this show: What Effect do you hope to induce in Visitors to the Exhibition? For me, the Kunsthistorisches Museum is a kind of time machine. There are few places like it that can show us where we stand today, where we come from, and where we may be heading.
With this exhibition we explore what the future will look like, and whether we will still be able to return to this source, the Old Masters. But we cannot find answers to these questions without museum visitors, without them there are no dialogues.In an effort to use art in support of the state, Louis XIV established the Royal Academy of Fine Arts to control matters of art and artistic education by imposing a classicizing style as well as other regulations and standards on art and artists.
Continuing in the Frick’s tradition of presenting masterpieces from acclaimed museums not easily accessible to the New York public, this exhibition follows on three acclaimed shows of similar size that drew, respectively, upon works from the Toledo Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Norton Simon Museum.

We talked about how he worked at court as a boy and must had observed life there, how he worked in Spain for Philip III and at works he did on his return to Antwerp. Robert Campin (c. – 26 April ), now usually identified with the Master of Flémalle (earlier the Master of the Merode Triptych, before the discovery of three other similar panels), was the first great master of Flemish and Early Netherlandish painting.
