Working on Paper: Robert Mangold and Sylvia Plimack-Mangold at the Annemarie Verna Galerie

The rail line is called Metro North. It travels along the shore of the Hudson River into the Hudson Valley. For over thirty years, we have made the trip once or twice almost every year in the spring, in the fall, to see Sylvia and Robert Mangold. Calling these excursions a “studio visit” falls short as a description. For a number of hours, we leave the art capital of New York behind us. The capital of claims and assertions, one could say, for the evaluative discourse wishing to take on this art scene has long since come to naught.

Kunsthaus Zürich presents Antoine Bourdelle’s bronze ‘Sappho’ and representatives of French sculpture.
‘Sappho’, the important bronze work by the French sculptor Antoine Bourdelle (1861–1929), has undergone an extensive restoration. From 21 March to 6 July 2014 it will be shown as part of a temporary collection presentation including sculptures by Auguste Rodin, Henri Matisse, Henri Laurens and others. Receiving its first showing at the Kunsthaus is the newly acquired work ‘We the People’ by Danh Vo (b. 1975), which adds a further twist to the theme of the fragmented figure and the robe that is also present in the exhibition.

Sylvan Müller: «Photographs from Japan» and Rebecca Maeder: «Porcelain» at Galerie Claudia Geiser, Zurich
On his journey through Japan the Swiss photographer Sylvan Müller kept a culinary diary, in which the people, towns and landscapes of the island kingdom found as much a place as the diversity of the cuisine. His precise and atmospheric images enter into a fascinating dia- logue with the porcelain works of Swiss ceramicist Rebecca Maeder, who has been studying in Korea over the last three years. Her most recent works reflect her examination of the tradi- tional forms of Korean ceramics and the special aesthetics of vessels that have been visibly restored. Both artists provide new and surprising perspectives on traditional themes.

Open Sesame! Anker, Hodler, Segantini... Masterpieces from the Foundation for Art, Culture and History at the Museum of Fine Arts Berne
The Kunstmuseum Bern is showing over 140 works of Swiss art dating from the 18th century up to modern times. They belong to the vast collection of the Foundation for Art, Culture and History, which was established in 1980 by the Winterthur patron of the arts Bruno Stefanini. Among other paintings, the exhibition is showcasing works by Cuno Amiet, Albert Anker, Arnold Böcklin, Alexandre Calame, Henry Fuseli, Giovanni and Augusto Giacometti, Ferdinand Hodler, Giovanni Segantini and Félix Vallotton. The show is structured thematically while integrating a number of historical items as well—for example the largest cluster of rock crystal ever to be found in Switzerland or the riding habit of the Empress Elizabeth of Austria and Queen of Hungary, popularly known as Sisi. The exhibition is, for the very first time, presenting a comprehensive view of the wonderful jewels tucked away in the Foundation’s veritable treasure vault.
