GUGGENHEIM TO WELCOME RECOVERED GOYA PAINTING
Children with a Cart to Join Spanish Painting Exhibition at Guggenheim
(NEW YORK, New York – February 5, 2007) The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum announced today that the recently recovered Francisco de Goya y Lucientes painting Children with a Cart (1778) will join the exhibition Spanish Painting from El Greco to Picasso: Time, Truth, and History at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on February 16, 2007.
The painting was stolen in November 2006 while en route to New York City for the opening of the Spanish Painting exhibition. After an extensive investigation, the painting was recovered by the FBI and returned to the Toledo Museum of Art (TMA), where it was reinstalled on January 11, 2007.
“Lending works of art to significant exhibitions is a vital component of our educational purpose,” TMA Director Don Bacigalupi said. “Now that our local community has had the opportunity to visit the recovered painting at TMA, we are proud to share our Goya with New York audiences.”
Lisa Dennison, Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, said, “The Guggenheim is delighted to welcome Goya’s Children with a Cart and that it will now join the already 21 paintings by that great artist currently on view in the exhibition. We are very grateful to Dr. Bacigalupi, the Toledo Museum of Art, and the Toledo community for allowing us to share this painting with the Guggenheim’s visitors.”
Spanish Painting from El Greco to Picasso: Time, Truth, and History remains on view at the Guggenheim through March 28, 2007. After the exhibition closes, Children with a Cart will return to the Toledo Museum of Art.
An FBI investigation into the painting’s theft is ongoing. The museums have been asked to refer all media questions regarding the investigation to Stephen Siegel, Media Representative, Newark Division of the FBI, 973-792-3020.

Asia Society Presents
Thirteen Dynamic New York Collectors of Asian Art
Exhibit Their Most Cherished Acquisitions Alongside
Select Objects from the Asia Society’s Permanent Collection in
February 27 through August 26, 2007
The Asia Society presents Collectors’ Choice, an exhibition of cherished objects from the private collections of thirteen of the country’s leading Asian art collectors from February 27 through August 26, 2007. Approximately fifty extraordinary works of sculpture, ceramic, and painting from Bhutan, China, Cambodia, Gandhara (present-day Pakistan/Afganistan), Japan, Kashmir, India, Thailand and Tibet, which range in date from the second to eighteenth century, will be presented alongside selected objects from the Asia Society’s Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd Collection.
The diverse group of contributing collectors to this exhibition include Renee and Robert Beningson Family, Susan L. Beningson, Mary Griggs Burke, Amita and Purnendu Chatterjee, Robert Ellsworth, Ron Lawrence and Julie Goodale, Andrew and Denise Saul, and Jane and Leopold Swergold. “We invited these dynamic art enthusiasts, self-taught connoisseurs and scholars of Asian art who live in the greater New York area to take part in this exhibition for the strength of their Pan Asian collections and also because of the diversity of ‘stories’ their lives as collectors could tell,” says Melissa Chiu, Director of the Museum, Asia Society.
This exhibition is unique in its focus on the collectors and their motivations and passions for acquiring art. It gives a voice to distinctive collecting practices and explores how these important collections are shaped according to specific tastes or chance experiences. For musicians Ron Lawrence and Julie Goodale, who began collecting Himalayan art about six years ago, it is the lyrical or unspoken quality of their paintings that they find most evocative. “If you sit and watch the Tathagata (Buddhist painting) in the afternoon light, the painting will move, it will interact with the light and even in the dark…I think that the artists had this in mind. The paintings are vehicles for the sublime,” said Ron Lawrence. For Amita Chatterjee, “There has been no scholarship involved in this process of collection…it is all about falling in love; it’s never about filling in a gap. It has to be about the immediacy of the relationship with the object.”
As a group, the thirteen collectors that have contributed their stories and collections to Collectors’ Choice represent a new era in the discerning collection of important art objects. “While exploring Asia does not have the exotic overtones it once did in the nineteenth century, today’s collectors face great challenges in locating significant artworks for sale and in taking risks on objects that need extensive conservation,” says Adriana Proser, Asia Society’s John H. Foster Curator of Traditional Asian Art who curated the exhibition in association with Kristy Phillips, Asia Society Museum Fellow. “In addition to years of refined connoisseurship, each of the collectors featured in Collectors’ Choice is known for having a practiced eye for beauty, authenticity, and a good deal.” The outstanding collections of Asian art objects on display in this exhibition reflect the controlled study, characters, individual experiences and fascinating chance encounters of these dynamic collectors.
These top collectors together with the exhibition curators carefully selected masterpieces from the Asia Society’s Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd Collection to accompany pieces from their own collections. “Collectors chose pieces that they were drawn to and thought would work well, for one reason or another, with pieces from their own collections,” says Adriana Proser. “The Rockefeller pieces help to highlight pieces from their own collections and visa versa.” Amassed by John D. Rockefeller 3rd and his wife, Blanchette, and bequeathed to Asia Society in 1978, the Asia Society’s permanent collection served as a source of inspiration to collectors like Andrew and Denise Saul and Robert Ellsworth who have a similar passion for Chinese ceramics.

On view from August 24 to September 24, 2006, Seen In Solitude: Robert Kipniss Prints from the James F. White Collection features a selection of lithographs, drypoints, and mezzotints created in the past forty years by American contemporary artist Robert Kipniss (born Brooklyn, New York, 1931). Already an accomplished painter, in 1967 Kipniss was encouraged to accept a print commission and enrolled in a six-week printmaking class at Pratt Graphics Center, New York. He quickly found an affinity with lithography and immersed himself in the medium for the next twenty-three years. In 1990, Kipniss began working with mezzotint, an intaglio technique that he describes as �drawing with light.� - Read Indepth Article at http://www.absolutearts.com
