One of the hottest shows of summer is coming to a close this Sunday at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. When we first announced the publication of the catalog for “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty”, there was nothing to see; and now, the exhibition has even picked up an extra week
Like the exhibition it accompanies, the book is a gorgeous production, celebrating the singular artistry of the great British fashion designer and presenting his work in a captivating format. Catch a behind-the-scenes look at the Museum’s design and production of this exquisite book.
Very few of Caravaggio’s works survive, and yet his considerable influence on Baroque painters across Europe is the subject of a new exhibition, “Caravaggio and His Followers in Rome” at the National Gallery of Canada, traveling to the Kimbell Art Museum later this fall. Most recently, an unknown portrait by Caravaggio has been uncovered, dating approximately to the year 1600 when the Italian artist was at his height.
