With Pound Discounted, British Artist Sets Record at Sotheby’s

Asian and American collectors went art shopping at Sotheby’s on Tuesday, taking advantage of the drop in sterling after Britain voted to exit the European Union last week.

Chinese billionaire Liu Yiqian’s Long Museum fought to win a monumental Jenny Saville painting of naked female bodies stacked like sardines, outbidding four competitors including American art dealer Larry Gagosian. The work was the top lot of the boisterous evening sale that tallied 52.2 million pounds ($69.4 million), surpassing the high estimate. Forty of the 46 offered lots sold.

I’m always saying I wish Louisville museums would have nighttime hours — especially during the summer. It would be nice to stroll the Frazier after work for a while. The Speed Museum offers Social Speed, but that’s only once a month and can be an elaborate outing. I just want somewhere to take in some culture while the day cools down.

Lucas abandons plan to build museum in Chicago after lawsuit – Quad

CHICAGO (AP) — “Star Wars” creator George Lucas announced Friday that he has abandoned plans to build his art museum in Chicago, blaming delays over a lawsuit from a parks group opposed to any development along the city’s prized lakefront.

The filmmaker said in a statement he would take his Lucas Museum of Narrative Art to California, but he did not name a specific location. He blamed Chicago’s Friends of the Parks group for suing to stop construction on what is currently a parking lot for Soldier Field.

“No one benefits from continuing their seemingly unending litigation to protect a parking lot,”

Oswaldo VIgas, Hieratica IV, 1971.
Oil on canvas, 70.7 x 58.9 in.

An international traveling museum retrospective of the late Venezuelan artist, Oswaldo Vigas’ prolific life’s work provides a rare opportunity to view the legacy of a modernist artist who shunned self-promotion. Yet, as his filmmaker son Lorenzo Vigas says, ” he had a conviction in his own greatness.” To shun promotion for the freedom to make the art that engrossed him, for sixty years, with an unshakeable conviction of gaining a place in history later, might seem like a contradiction in
