  32 new Pollocks Found
32 new Jackson Pollock paintings may have been uncovered in a storage shed in New York. Pollock experts are still yet to decide if they are the real thing. The works are from Pollock's famous drip paintings period, so if they are genuine Pollock paintings, they could fetch very large sums of money.
Proving the Pollock
"If 32 hitherto unknown paintings by Leonardo or Caravaggio were suddenly uncovered, the art world would be on fire with excitement. Not even his strongest supporters would claim that the great American abstract expressionist, Jackson Pollock, is quite in that league. But the claim that 32 of his paintings - mostly from his spectacularly inventive "drip" period - have been discovered is nevertheless a major event. The trouble is that Pollock experts cannot yet agree whether they are genuine." read full story

  Bella Freud by Lucian Freud
A softer, more tender nude by Lucien Freud will go up for auction at Christie's and is estimated to reach £2.2m. Rather than being the harsh and brutally honest nude depiction that he normally does of his sitters, this one of his daughter Bella Freud when she was 20 is more compassionate, perhaps influenced by the father-daughter relationship.
Freud by Freud comes under the hammer
"The pose may be relaxed, but the face is not: the woman seems about to speak, to protest perhaps that she would rather be the daughter of an astronaut or a binman than of an artist noted both for pitilessly frank nude portraits, and for taking unfeasibly long to complete them." the guardian

  Alberto Sughi Artist Interview
italian artist interviewThe Italian painter Alberto Sughi has a new interview published on his website. It was first published in a publication on the artist by the Italian bank, Cassa di Risparmio di Cesena.
"There are, obviously, biographical references. But I prefer to regard my paintings as having a life of their own, which is not always connected with my own personal history. One day, when exhibited, other people will be viewing my works. They will translate the images captured by the artist into thoughts, according to their own intuitions and cultural background. Then, perhaps, my paintings will become the "mirror" of those observing them. But "mirror" is an unforgiving word, and I prefer not to use it myself."

  Spencer Tunick Nudes in Belgium
spencer tunick - nude installationsNearly 2000 people put on their birthday suits in near freezing weather recently in Bruges, Belgium for the photographer Spencer Tunick. An estimated 1950 people braved the cold for the sake of art and spread themselves over the ancient cobblestones of the Belgian city, all completely naked. One participant said "It was a good feeling, everybody went naked and there was this sense of togetherness. There was no shame."
Since 1994 the American artist Spencer Tunick has arranged more than 65 nude installation works in the United States and around the world. He has been arrested five times in New York while trying to create his nude installations, but all charges were dropped and he has since been allowed to do his thing in NY.
