what happened to “artchive”
“A fundamental concept in Edvard Munch’s art is The Frieze of Life, a series of deeply personal, highly expressive motifs in paintings and graphic works, imbued with existential angst. Together, the pictures constitute his major work. On the subject of the origins of The Frieze of Life, Munch wrote in the early thirties in a draft letter to his friend Jens Thiis:
“Munch’s lithograph verges on irony, to which he was not averse. Even so, modifying the well-known phrase, we may wish to suggest that ‘irony is the courtesy of despair’. Munch’s art represents women in the light of trauma. Seduction itself is a source of anxiety; satisfaction brings remorse ( Ashes ), and jealousy and separation are experienced as terrifying and depressing events.
SFMOMA’s painting and sculpture curator Gary Garrels told the Chronicle that the Rothko is ” a very good painting , but it’s not of the first rank.”
Experts say that the deep burgundy oil on canvas , a main color field painting by the artist , can bring $35−50 million at Sotheby’s New York Contemporary Art Evening Auction. The proceeds will also be allocated to create a new fund for future acquisitions. It is planned to travel to London , Taipei , and Hong Kong , before returning to New York for exhibition and eventual auction in May.
