School For Myanmar
We’re partnering with our friends at Lumas for a charity auction to aid children in Myanmar.
100% of the funds raised will be used to finance the construction of a new school in a village at the foot of the Pyapon River in Myanmar.
Additionally, LUMAS will support the school’s operating costs for the first three years. Only the most valuable, sold-out LUMAS editions will be on offer in this charity auction.
This holiday season, help us make a difference by purchasing a beautiful work of art on artnet Auctions.
Turner Prize 2013
French artist Laure Prouvost has won Britain’s most prestigious art award, the Turner Prize. A surprise win, her work combines whimsical objects and drawings in poignant settings with an Instagram-like stream of film images.
The annual £25,000 award, which recognizes artists under 50 who were born in or are currently working in Britain, was presented to Ms. Prouvost last night in Northern Ireland — the first time the exhibition and ceremony took place outside England.
"I wasn’t expecting it at all, I was sure it was not me," said Prouvost, who has lived in London since coming to study at Central St. Martins arts college at the age of 18.
"Half of me feels British, I’ve been here half my life. My boyfriend is half British and my daughter is both. I feel adopted. It was really this country that let me grow."

Banksy in Paris

After his much acclaimed site-specific installation at the church of Saint-Germain des Prés, Daniel Hourdé returns to the neighborhood with a new solo show at Galerie Agnès Monplaisir.
The human body, tortured but no less radiant, is a leitmotif for the paintings and sculptures by Daniel Hourdé. Throughout his impressive oeuvre, Hourdé somehow gives life to objects and unliving items.
Daniel Hourdé ‘Man in Progress’ debuts on Dec 5, 2013 at Galerie Agnès Monplaisir.
Happy Birthday to Neo-Impressionist painter Georges Seurat who was born on this day in 1859. Despite its small size, this painting shows the technique that Seurat is most famous for –pointillism. Would you be up for the challenge of counting each dot?! If you are, head to Galley 152 where this painting is now on view.
"My Weimaraners are perfect fashion models. Their elegant, slinky forms are covered in gray - and gray, everyone knows, goes with anything."
- William Wegman
Artist William Wegman celebrates his 70th Birthday today. A dog lover, he is famed for creating a series of compositions featuring his endearing Weimaraners, Fay and Man Ray.
