Miranda Ceja , Patch Staff Posted Reply LAGUNA BEACH, CA — A new exhibition will debut at the Laguna Art Museum this June, museum organizers announced Tuesday. The upcoming exhibition, Joseph Kleitsch: Abroad and At Home in Old Laguna, will showcase the work of impressionist painter Joseph Kleitsch, whose pieces "vividly capture the energy and beauty of Southern California" when it debuts on June 24. The Hungarian-born artist's early work is comprised mostly of small still-life paintings and eventually, skilled portraits which he built his name on. In 1920, he and his wife Edna settled in Laguna Beach, where he became a member of the Laguna Beach Art Association and started painted landscapes and street scenes. “We cannot wait to welcome guests to this exhibition … [Read more...] about New Laguna Art Museum Exhibit To Showcase Old Laguna, Beauty of OC

Emily Fisher Landau, Art Patron Who Had Her Own Museum, Dies at 102
Emily Fisher Landau, a New Yorker who used a Lloyd’s insurance settlement from a spectacular jewel heist in her apartment to fund what would become one of America’s premier collections of contemporary art, died on March 27 in Palm Beach, Fla. She was 102. Her death was confirmed by her daughter, Candia Fisher. From 1991 to 2017, Ms. Landau opened her collection of 1,200 artworks to the public in the Fisher Landau Center for Art, a repurposed former factory in Long Island City, Queens. In 2010, she pledged almost 400 works, then worth between $50 million and $75 million, to the Whitney Museum of American Art, where she had long been a trustee. Ms. Landau’s trajectory into the art world began unexpectedly on a spring afternoon in 1969, while she was out at lunch. Armed burglars disguised as air conditioning repairmen broke into her apartment in the Imperial House building on the Upper East Side, bound the cook in a guest closet and opened a floor safe hidden inside another … [Read more...] about Emily Fisher Landau, Art Patron Who Had Her Own Museum, Dies at 102
Berlin’s Art Scene: Are Reports of Its Death Exaggerated?
BERLIN — It’s not looking good for Berlin’s art scene, if you believe the newspaper headlines. This spring, Die Welt, a German daily, called the city an “ art metropolis in decline .” The Financial Times said the art world had “ said goodbye .” These dire proclamations were spurred by the announcements that three prominent art collectors with art on public view here — Julia Stoschek, Thomas Olbricht and Friedrich Christian Flick — were departing, taking their collections with them. It was just the latest bad news: In December, the Art Berlin fair folded; in February the international mega-gallery Blain Southern, which had a space in Berlin, announced it would be closing. Yet, art in Berlin goes on — perhaps in a more-established, less-hyped way than during the German capital’s cheap, come-one, come-all halcyon days. From the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 until the early 2010s, when rents began rising sharply, Berlin was a hotbed for unregulated experimentation and … [Read more...] about Berlin’s Art Scene: Are Reports of Its Death Exaggerated?
The Royal Museum With a White-Cube Gallery Inside
ANTWERP, Belgium — From the outside, it’s difficult to see the impact of the $105 million, 11-year renovation and expansion of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, one of Belgium’s most prestigious and important museums. There is no glass pyramid jutting from the sidewalk or new modernist curlicue declaring itself a new wing. The 19th-century museum’s limestone facade with its high neoclassical columns, carved busts and winged horses seems to have had just a good cleaning. When the building finally reopened on Saturday, however, the public discovered that the interior has been dramatically transformed. Where there once was one museum, visitors now find two. As well as the original museum, with a grand hall containing Peter Paul Rubens altarpieces and galleries full of works by Flemish masters, KAAN Architects , a Dutch firm, has added a modern art wing that curators here are calling “the new museum.” Its galleries, with bright white walls and white poured-resin floors, … [Read more...] about The Royal Museum With a White-Cube Gallery Inside
