    Sunday, October 25th, 2020

    Painted in a fever of activity Fleurs dans un verre by Vincent van Gogh will highlight Sotheby’s evening sale of Impressionist and Modern Art in New York on October 28.  This is one of about 70 canvases completed by van Gogh in the 70 days before his suicide in the village of  Auvers. It is estimated at $14-18 million.  The online auction will feature works from the Brooklyn Museum including a Monet and Surrealist art by Man Ray, Giorgio de Chirico and Rene Magritte.  The evening of exciting sales will kick off with a Contemporary Art sale highlighted by a 1958 Mark Rothko which pre-empts his celebrated Seagram Building murals now at the Tate in London.  Untitled (Black on Maroon) is estimated at $25-$35 million.

    Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) – Fleurs dans un verre. UPDATE: THIS SOLD FOR $16,007,300.

    HOCKNEY CARRIES ON IN LOCKDOWN IN NORMANDY

    Wednesday, April 1st, 2020

    THE exhibition I most enjoyed last year – when you could still travel – was Hockney Van Gogh at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. This video with David Hockney on Van Gogh was part of a show which demonstrated how the two are allied artistically.

    Now on lockdown in Normandy David Hockney is in his garden most days, drawing spring awakening. He has shared current images with the BBC including this one, which shows connection with Van Gogh.

    David Hockney believes that we have lost touch with nature, “rather foolishly”.
