Art Market Magazine
February is a relatively tough month for an art market currently suffering from a certain nervousness. We have given this issue a resolutely international touch, in view of knocking quite a few preconceived ideas on the head. Take the tenacious image of Jordaens as a painter of bons vivants wafting us to the heart of Flanders and its splendid banquets. Thanks to an exhibition at the Kassel Museum, analysed for us by the specialist Joost Vander Auwera, this is superseded by the image of an erudite artist imbued with Antique cultures. Did you think that Hollywood gave rise to the epic? Two French exhibitions show that all the ingredients for the genre were already present in 19th century theatre and opera... Another received idea concerns contemporary art collections, often judged in the light of their speculative yields. In bringing together works by Pistoletto, Spalletti and Fabro, the Italians Giuliana and Tommaso Setari show that today a collection can be both social and committed… So, here you have 100 pages with a completely new angle on the art scene!
