Clement Cogitore adapts Jean Philippe Rameau’s 1735 four-part opera-ballet’ ‘Les Indes Galantes’ (The amourous indies) into a six-minute short film. Each entrée in Rameau’s work is a short story unified by the theme of love between exotic people in exotic places, such as Peru, North America, the Ottoman Empire and Persia. At the time of its premiere, the opera was a victorious display of French Enlightenment over the “Indes,” which then referred to the world beyond Europe. Cogitore adapts the final act of the entrée “Les...

Bernard Buffet, The Winter Palace, 1928 - 29, oil on canvas

The first painting visitors see in the exhibition "The Masters of Modern Art from the Hermitage"  is Bernard Buffet’s The Winter Palace, which presents the St. Petersburg Hermitage painted as a gothic hard lined institution rather than the opulent jade pastel palace that it is. This fantastic painting serves two functions as it welcomes visitors to the exhibition. Firstly, it sets the curator’s motive for the exhibition which presents masters of modern art who wer...

The Louvre, Prado, Uffizi, MET and Rijks, these are all mega-galleries or museums of art that house multitudinous works of art.

In the art lexicon this is called art fatigue.

Munich is home to over 200 galleries, rivalling it's sister city, Berlin, to the title of the art epicentre of Central Europe. 

I have travelled to Munich many times for my own cultural hit, but had always had the issue of not finding a city guide that provided me with enough information on the art galleries and museums of Munich. So, I put one together myself.

art notes...

There are extreme differences between the values of painting and sculpture, and those of mass media. Art requires the long look.
