Abstract:
The first installation of community art projects that will be visible upon entering the Museum is detailed. Local artists Mathew Curran, Bart Cusick, and Vic Knight created a mural inspired by 19th century landscapes from the Impressionism movement. Their mural includes stencils of Renoir, Sargent, and Monet with swirling colors and images from Hawthorne’s Highland Light (about 1925) and Spencer’s The White Tenement (1913) included. Several times a year the space will feature new community art installations by local artists.

Abstract:
The North Carolina Museum of art knows the value of provenance. The painting Madonna and Child by Andrea Del Sarto (1486-1531) was suspected of being stolen by the Nazis in World War II only three years after discovering their painting Madonna and Child in a Landscape by Lucas Cranach was stolen by the Nazis. After being approached by a claimant who wanted to seize the suspected stolen Del Sarto painting, the Museum conducted an investigation to verify the painting’s provenance. The painting was found to have been legitimately sold by its owner and purchased by the Museum. After questions about provenance, the Museum has hired an expert to examine its collection and fill in any gaps in the history of ownership of its works.

Abstract:
Many of the works of art at the North Carolina Museum were owned by men and women of power, royalty, wealth, and nobility. The Bear Hunt (1639-40) by Peter Paul Rubens and Frans Synders was owned by King Philip IV of Spain and was commissioned by the king to hang in his summer palace, the Alcazar, in Madrid. The history of ownership of Thomas Hart Benton’s Spring on the Missouri, and Cornelis de Vos’ and Peter Paul Reubens’ Philip IV are also detailed. The topic of art ownership and how it affects the value of a work of art is also discussed.

Abstract:
In the new exhibit Far From Home, the idea of disorientation and opportunity play a large role. The exhibition features works of modern art which focus on the idea of home. This idea of home could center on a family dwelling, geographic location, or culture and the complicated sense of origin and belonging our modern world has created.
