Line & Stylish Art Magazine number 10 has a special focus on Mr. Bertrand Delacroix, a French man who is president of Bertrand Delacroix Gallery in Chelsea, New York City. By Mr. Bertrand Delacroix, we emphasize the importance play by galleries and gallerists in our day’s art. Without a strong art market it’s quite impossible to have an artistic environment characterized by life and changing, so the role of art dealers, curators and gallerists is much more important that it seems at a first sight, upon them lies the responsibility of disclosure contemporary art. The way each one does his job is like to define his action and relevance. After the 90s of last century, when art was understood and presented just like a big business, a series of new gallerists began to emerge motivated by a new attitude. Obviously, the sense of business continues to persist but now the art dealers show their passion on the art works presented by them, becoming a kind of accomplices of their artists. This is the new attitude that we find in gallerists like Mr. Bertrand Delacroix, and for all of them Line & Stylish Art Magazine will always have a special place.

The Pairing Oxidation Paintings by Andy Warhol and Fire Paintings by Yves Klein May 9 through June 21 SKARSTEDT to open A CHELSEA GALLERY Inaugural Exhibition The inaugural exhibition at the Chelsea gallery will present the pairing of Oxidation Paintings by Andy Warhol and Fire Paintings by Yves Klein, two major bodies of Work by canonical 20th Century artists and fundamental to the history of abstraction, Never before exhibited together. In the spring of 1961, access to a destructive testing laboratory in France, led Klein To one of his most innovative and, quite literally, explosive, bodies of work, the Fire Paintings. Klein used a blowtorch to “burn” abstracted forms onto receiving paper. Klein’s technique bears striking similarity to the photographic technique of a heliograph, but Klein used flame, rather than light, to create shapes and forms. Intensely haunting and ethereal, the Fire Paintings exemplify what Klein referred to as “dangerous paintings,” that which jeopardized him in the process of his art making.

A decade later, Warhol did his own creative experiments with scientific process, but instead chose urine and metallic paints as the catalysts. For the Oxidations (1977-78), Warhol created brilliant, lavishly textured surfaces of gold and green, Fashioning the “physical presence” he desired while satirizing the physical act of Painting privileged by his forefathers, the Abstract Expressionists. This series marks an important point of departure for Warhol, being his first foray into abstraction, and disclosing his intrigue with the Abstract Expressionist painters who had dominated the New York art scene in the 1950s, during his early career. “We have an ongoing commitment to mounting key historical exhibitions,” says Per Skarstedt, “and I’m delighted to open this new gallery space in Chelsea with An exhibition of incredible Works by these quintessential modern masters.” Skarstedt continues, “This approach suits the collaborative way we have always worked with artists and their estates.”

VIENNA - BERLIN

The Art of Two Cities 14 February to 15 June 2014 Berlinische Galerie, Berlin Lower Belvedere, Viena

In the late nineteenth century, both Berlin and Vienna were considered rising metropolises, which, however, represent identification models antithetical to this day, as well as different cultural self-concepts. Whereas the literary exchange between those two global cities has extensively been explored, a comparison of their developments in the visual arts and an investigation into mutual interaction in this field has remained blind spots. The exhibition Vienna - Berlin, spanning from the early twentieth century to the interwar years, is the first to deal with the artistic parallels, differences, and correlations between these two towns.

On the one hand, there is Berlin, the vast metropolis without a grown historical centre, a city that almost strikes one as American; on the other hand, there is Vienna, the town of operettas suffused by the Baroque style and first and foremost associated with dÊcadence. The points of departure of this show are relationships, discrepancies, and similarities between the two cities’ Secessionist movements around 1900. While the Viennese Expressionists were primarily characterized by their psychological empathy, the Young and Wild Ones in Berlin chiefly displayed an ecstatically aggressive demeanor. World War I led to a rapprochement of the two nations, entailing a vivid artistic exchange between the two cities that evolved with regard to the emerging style of New Objectivity, particularly when it comes to stage art. At the same time, Viennese Kineticism, relying on concepts of Expressionism and Futurism, gained influence. It was juxtaposed by the Berlin Dada movement, which addressed current social conditions in a both critical and subversive manner, thereby creating an anti-culture.

Especially the Roaring Twenties reflect an artistic exchange between and approximation of opposing positions, allowing a new perspective of the connection between the two capitals, which, in spite of their differences, were closely related social - criticism and their approach to aesthetics, a Cubist language of form, and a tendency towards Verism coincided. This development is exemplified through works by Otto Dix, Rudolf Schlichter, George Grosz, Albert Paris G端tersloh, Anton Kolig, and Rudolf Wacker. Moreover, the show includes examples by Herbert Boeckl, Raoul Hausmann, Josef Hoffmann, Friedrich Kiesler, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erika Giovanna Klien, Oskar Kokoschka, Max Liebermann, Max Oppenheimer, Max Pechstein, Christian Schad, Egon Schiele, Max Slevogt, and others. In addition, contacts between the artists and art dealers and promoters, such as Cassirer, Walden, Moll, and Loos are discussed, while the significance of such co-operating art periodicals as Aktion, Sturm, and Fackel is examined.

L&S - What led you to establish an Art Gallery in Chelsea (N.Y), when the art market was still in recession? BERTRAND DELACROIX: It just happened that way. I had my first gallery in Soho in 1995. I went through many ups and downs. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s not so good. The past few years were difficult but the worst is over and I was fortunate to be able to remain in business. The art market shifted to Chelsea and I needed to be part of it. Recessions bring great opportunities! I was looking for a space in Chelsea for years. Before the bottom fell out, I would have never found the space I’m in now! At best, I was off the beaten path… L&S - What is the major difference between BDG and thousands of galleries that we can find in New York? BERTRAND DELACROIX: We all operate under the same rules and guidelines. However, the roster of artists and the commitment and passion of the owner are what differentiate each gallery. L&S - In spite of keeping an open mind and attitude, it seems quite obvious that BDG has a preference for figurative art and new mediums. How do you explain that, when the majority of galleries continue to bet on the remains of the last century conceptualism? BERTRAND DELACROIX: It’s about what I like. What’s in my gallery is in my house and vice versa. If I don’t like it, I won’t do well with it, I won’t be able to sell it. There are actually very few conceptual and video installations on my block in Chelsea! In fact, there is more figurative work in this area than you would think.

L&S - One of the most surprising things in your galleries is the universality of your artists. One can find artists from all over the world without sacrificing a high quality standard. How can you do that? BERTRAND DELACROIX: Where the art was made and the background of its creator doesn’t matter. Thanks to the Internet, there are no more boundaries and we receive portfolios from artists all over the world. I also travel frequently and always keep my eyes peeled for new work. L&S - What are the main criteria in the selection of artists represented by BDG? BERTRAND DELACROIX: PFirst and foremost, I must like the work. Then, I must like the person and he or she must be available. Finally, it has to make sense, ie. Financially, availability of work, dynamics… L&S - Do you think we are watching a global artistic revolution, where the figurative plays the main role in the new trends and vanguards? BERTRAND DELACROIX: Absolutely. In fact, in my opinion, it’s not a revolution: it’s always been so and the trend is more apparent during hard times.

L&S - As a European who has spent more than half of his life in America, how do you feel about the actual art market in New York? BERTRAND DELACROIX: It is one of the strongest markets in the world, yet it is also the most difficult to strive in - t least at my level. L&S - What is the secret to gathering emergent artists and make them recognized worldwide, such is the case of Federico Infante, among others? BERTRAND DELACROIX: If I tell you, I’ll have to kill you. No really, there is no secret. We have a beautiful space in the heart of Chelsea. We are surrounded by the biggest galleries, ie Pace, Marlborough, etc. This makes us very attractive to a lot of artists. L&S - What are BDG’s future plans for the short and long term? BERTRAND DELACROIX: We will be in the space we currently occupy on 25th Street until 2020 and then, we will assess if we want to stay in Chelsea or relocate. I would really love to re-open a gallery in New Orleans.

C'EST LA VIE

The Paris of Daumier and Toulouse-Lautrec 16 May to 3 August 2014 Hamburger Kunsthalle

This is the first exhibition that pays a comparative tribute to the two great French lithographers of the nineteenth century, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901) and Honoré Daumier (1808–1879). The artists are not only alike in giving the highest importance to the lithographic technique, but also in their snapshot view of the French capital Paris with the eye of an outsider, from a peripheral position. 2014 is the 150th anniversary of the birth of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Reason enough to honour this virtuoso of the belle époque, whose colour-saturated prints still bear impressive witness to Parisian nightlife at the turn of the century, with a presentation of his outstanding images.

Toulouse-Lautrec enters surprisingly clearly into a dialogue with the art of Honoré Daumier. He rephrases, reinterprets, amplifies – a hitherto overlooked aspect of the artist’s work. Daumier, who for a long time was primarily seen in a political light, can be experienced as a sharp-tongued chronicler of his fellow citizens in the metropolitan bustle. Like Daumier, Toulouse-Lautrec was an avid protagonist of his time who portrayed people with unsparing directness in their social context. The dialogical comparison shows scenes from the Paris courts, city-dwellers amusing themselves in the country or people’s eccentric behaviour as soon as they find themselves in the company of others.

Although the exhibition focuses on lithographic masterpieces, the sophisticated posters and true-to-life caricatures that have left their mark on the collective memory to this day, ToulouseLautrec and the almost two generations older Daumier were also highly adept in the use of other media. Drawings and oil paintings set a vibrant counterpoint in various parts of the exhibition, which is able to draw on an abundance of works from the Hamburger Kunsthalle, other large museums and private collections. Curators: Prof. Hubertus GaĂ&#x;ner and Dr Jonas Beyer

The Flowering of Edo Period Painting: Japanese Masterworks from the Feinberg Collection February 1 -September 7, 2014 The Metropolitan Museum of Art This exhibition will draw on the holdings of noted American collectors Robert and Betsy Feinberg, who have created one of the premiere private collections of Japanese painting from the Edo period (1615–1868) outside Japan. Displaying exemplary works from painting schools that arose in Japan in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the exhibition will allow viewers to discover how Japanese painting evolved from the traditional modes of Chinese and Japanese (Yamato-e) styles that had prevailed through medieval times. More than ninety paintings—including twelve sets of folding screens and a number of hanging scrolls—will be exhibited in two rotations, each consisting of approximately fortyfive paintings. Rather than focus on the orthodox output of the Tosa and Kano ateliers, which dominated artistic production in the late medieval period, The Flowering of Edo Period Painting will highlight the new, exuberant styles of the Rinpa, Nanga, Maruyama-Shijō, and Ukiyo-e schools, as well as independent painters of the Edo period.

With works of nearly every major Edo painter represented, the exhibition will serve as an excellent introduction to Edo painting in its entirety. While examining the stylistic innovations, the paintings on view will capture compelling scenes of nature, people at work and play, and scenes drawn from East Asian history, legend, and literature. Highlights will include the hanging scroll Tiger, a tour-de-force of ink painting of the early 1630s by Tawaraya Sōtatsu, founder of the Rinpa school. They also will include especially fine examples of the nineteenth-century Edo Rinpa–revival painters Sakai Hōitsu and Suzuki Kiitsu, respectively represented by a rare set of a dozen hanging scrolls of Birds and Flowers of the Twelve Months and a graphically potent pair of two-panel folding screens of Cranes. Works by such eighteenth-century Kyoto masters as Ike no Taiga, Yosa Buson, Soga Shōhaku, Maruyama Ōkyo, and Nagasawa Rosetsu are a special strength of the collection. Ukiyo-e artists known best in the West for their woodblock prints will be represented by meticulously detailed paintings thought to have been commissioned by wealthy clients. A pair of seventeenthcentury folding screens showing a Portuguese trading ship and the antics of its sailors testifies to the fascination the Japanese had with the arrival of the first European traders on their shores toward the end of the 16th century.

ITALIAN FUTURISM, 1909 – 1944:

Reconstructing the Universe February 21 through September 1, 2014 Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

Italian Futurism1909–1944: Reco,nstructing the Universe comprehensive overview in the United States of one of Europe’s most important 20thcentury avant-garde movements. Featuring over 360 works by more than 80 artists, architects, designers, photographers, and writers, this multidisciplinary exhibition examines the full historical breadth of Futurism, from its 1909 inception with the publication of Filippo Tommaso Marinetti’s first Futurist manifesto through its demise at the end of World War II. The exhibition includes many rarely seen works, some of which have never traveled outside of Italy. It encompasses not only painting and sculpture, but also the advertising, architecture, ceramics, design, fashion, film, free-form poetry, photography, performance, publications, music, and theater of this dynamic and often contentious movement that championed modernity and insurgency.

The exhibition is organized by Vivien Greene, Senior Curator, 19th- and Early 20th-Century Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. An international advisory committee composed of eminent scholars from many disciplines provided expertise and guidance in the preparation of this thorough exploration of the Futurist movement, a major modernist expression that in many ways remains little known among American audiences.

About Futurism

Futurism was launched in 1909 against a background of growing economic and social upheaval. In Marinetti’s “The Founding and Manifesto of Futurism,” published in Le Figaro, he outlined the movement’s key aims, among them: to abolish the past, to champion modernization, and to extol aggression. Although it began as a literary movement, Futurism soon embraced the visual arts as well as advertising, fashion, music and theater, and it spread throughout Italy and beyond. The Futurists rejected stasis and tradition and drew inspiration from the emerging industry, machinery, and speed of the modern metropolis. The first generation of artists created works characterized by dynamic movement and fractured forms, aspiring to break with existing notions of space and time to place the viewer at the center of the artwork. Extending into many mediums, Futurism was intended to be not just an artistic idiom but an entirely new way of life. Central to the movement was the concept of the opera d’arte totale or “total work of art,” in which the viewer is surrounded by a completely Futurist environment.

More than two thousand individuals were associated with the movement over its duration. In addition to Marinetti, central figures include: artists Giacomo Balla, Benedetta (Benedetta Cappa Marinetti), Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà, Fortunato Depero, and Enrico Prampolini; poets and writers Francesco Cangiullo and Rosa Rosà; architect Antonio Sant’Elia; composer Luigi Russolo; photographers Anton Giulio Bragaglia and Tato (Guglielmo Sansoni); dancer Giannina Censi; and ceramicist Tullio d’Albisola. These figures and other lesser-known ones are represented in the exhibition.

Futurism is commonly understood to have had two phases: “heroic” Futurism, which lasted until around 1916, and a later incarnation that arose after World War I and remained active until the early 1940s. Investigations of “heroic” Futurism have predominated and comparatively few exhibitions have explored the subsequent life of the movement; until now, a comprehensive overview of Italian Futurism had yet to be presented in the U.S. Italian art of the 1920s and ’30s is little known outside of its home country, due in part to a taint from Futurism’s sometime association with Fascism. This association complicates the narrative of this avant-garde and makes it all the more necessary to delve into and clarify its full history.

INTERVIEW WITH PATRICIA ABRAMOVICH By: JosĂŠ Eduardo Silva and Isabel Gore Patricia Abramovich (1958) born in France. Since 1972 she lives and works in Netanya, Israel. L&S - When did you feel the need to express yourself through Art ? Patricia Abramovich: Since I was twelve years old, I loved to draw white and black portraits from pictures that I took from magazines, using only pencils and charcoal. I used to write poems and I asked my parents to learn to play piano. I wrote some songs and played some guitar chords. I always needed to express myself in an artistic way. My parents gave me the freedom to choose my creative way. L&S - Till the age of 4 you spent your childhood in France. Did it influence your decision to become an artist? Patricia Abramovich: In France we lived in Paris and I took art and music lessons. I was a child who loved to read books and go to school. As drawing and design were my passions, I decided to learn architecture. I think that living in France gave me a basic lesson of beauty, love for freedom and independence.

108

L&S - NIn the 70s you went to Israel. Did this cultural change influence your paintings? Patricia Abramovich: : I lived more than 20 years in Israel without painting. I was working, studying and raising my two children with my husband Boris that I met in Israel. I had no time for art. When my children grew up I felt the need to draw again. I began to take basic lessons and then I remember a period in my life when I painted every free minute .This period was very creative and I painted and learned techniques through art books that I ordered to practice. I think that the basic education I have reached in France was strong enough to maintain my main inspiration. The fact of working intensively during my life in Israel made me return to art. L&S - How do you define Art? Patricia Abramovich: Art brings beauty to the world and makes people think and grow. I did not learn Art History but I have read art books and I have enjoyed every one. I believe that the world would not be complete without art. I understand that famous Art Masters live forever, just like famous music composers. For me, Art is a way to express myself. It gives me satisfaction, joy and I feel that it is a kind of meditation experience.

L&S - Having a rich palette and being the landscapes one of your dominant genre, why didn’t you take the figurative challenge namely with the human figure ? Patricia Abramovich: PI paint since 1997, and when I review my first watercolors I find there flowers, landscapes and abstracts. When I began to use oil I made copies from art books, and shortly after I began to paint abstracts. This style gives me freedom and makes me feel the canvas. When I reach the right balance between the colours, I can say the painting is ready. I have the human figure as a challenge in my projects. As I like to experiment new techniques and subjects and to do different things, I am planning to paint faces using oil, but I will have to find my own style in my portraits adventure. For now, I am observing great contemporary artists’ portraits artworks. L&S - At a certain moment you decided to use knives instead of brushes. Why? Patricia Abramovich: I love the freedom that I get with knives. I use the colour directly on the canvas and then I begin to mix them .The knives give me a lot of possibilities to play with the texture, to paint with a certain rhythm that I couldn’t reach using brushes.

114

L&S - : Inside the abstract your painting covers various styles. How do you explain this diversity? Patricia Abramovich: As I said before, I need to explore techniques and I am trying to invent one in every medium I work with, and I have never used the classical medium method. I think that all styles I paint are abstracts, no matter if they are flowers, trees or landscapes. Most of my works are born from my imagination; they come out of my mind. If I use a picture to paint a landscape, it’s only to inspire me and to have a basic example of composition. L&S - Who are your major influences? Patricia Abramovich: Monet, Cezanne and Van Gogh. My Provence series of landscapes was born from a trip in the south of France where these masters painted the beauty of that land. I love the works of Sissley, Degas and others. A few years ago I discovered the great Jackson Pollock, when an art curator told me that my oils looked like Pollock’s style. Then, I found that both of us were born in January 28, and as a person like me, who is interested in astrology that was a stunning fact.

L&S - Your current exhibition in Israel named ”Father” is dedicated to your father. Can you tell us more about that? My father died a year ago and I loved him very much. We had a lot in common. I decided to organize an exhibition in his memory inviting all the persons who knew him and five years ago I did the same for my beloved mother. It has been an important event for our small family, especially for my children and my brother’s daughters who were very close to their grandparents. This current exhibition will take place at the Netanya Local Artists Association Galleries. I will show a landscape series and an abstract one. My father was proud of my art activity and I used to inform and to talk with him about all my projects I really miss my parents. Tradução: L&S

PATRICIA ABRAMOVICH: Artist Statement “Art for me is the freedom to create with no boundaries, to express the diversity of color from which the human soul is composed. Spreading color across a canvas is a mean of meditation; I connect with my inner self. My hands just move with rhythm using the painter knife to mix the colors directly on the blank canvas. I choose the colors and let my soul conduct me, handling the knife as a brush. The colors merge on the canvas on their own. Then I use a spatula to paint over them, with oil. When working in water color “aquarelle”, I allow the colors to merge with the water in whatever direction they choose. I feel the artwork is ready, when the colors reach a balance between them. I usually have no pre conceived idea and I am always curious to see the final result of my painting. My major influences are Monet and Cézanne, but I also appreciate the works of Van Gogh, Sissley, Renoir and Michelangelo. I am also fascinated with Japanese art and calligraphy, and one day I would love to exhibit in Tokyo” Patricia Abramovich.

Thin Skin: Six Artists from Beirut 3 June – 2 July 2014 Taymour Grahne Gallery

“It suffices that we dissipate ourselves a little, that we be able to be at the surface, that we stretch our skin like a drum.”Gilles Deleuze To document, tame and confront a ghostly space is to define a surface that carries within it abyss and utopia. Presented by Taymour Grahne Gallery, this exhibition examines the relationship of a generation of artists within the living, breathing city of Beirut. Following years of civil war and the evolving reality of contemporary Lebanon, the skin of the city is becoming increasingly porous, intricate and fragmented, as echoed by its physical landscape – pock-marked and at times interrupted by cavernous holes gouged into the urban fabric.

124


This is the central subject of Thin Skin. Curated by Saleh Barakat, the show samples paintings from the oeuvres of six artists who live and work in the city of Beirut: Ayman Baalbaki, Mohamad-Said Baalbaki, Oussama Baalbaki, Tagreed Darghouth, Omar Fakhoury, and Nadia Safieddine. In individual and at times very intimate ways, the artists consider their living environment as the subject of their paintings, representing the textured surface of daily life. Their works together reflect a state of stasis. Stasis, a term used in Ancient Greece to designate a political, moral or social crisis resulting from an internal conflict within a state or city, can also be translated into terms of discord, decadence, civil war and revolt. It does not recognize any law, nor any limit.

Renowned curator Saleh Barakat is an expert in contemporary and modern Arab art. Through Agial Art Gallery, which he opened in Beirut in 1991, he has been a pioneering force behind the growing global understanding of and appreciation for Arab artists. In 2007, Barakat co-curated the first Lebanese Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, which included Taymour Grahne Gallery artist Lamia Joreige, among others. Barakat has also curated several groundbreaking shows at the Beirut Exhibition Center, including retrospectives for Lebanese modern masters Shafic Abboud in 2012 and Saloua Raouda Choucair in 2011. 125


Ayman Baalbaki was born in 1975 at the start of the Lebanese Civil War, a brutal conflict that has both affected and inspired his work. He studied Fine Arts in Beirut at the Institut des Beaux Arts and at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Art Decoratifs in Paris. Baalbaki is well-known for both his paintings and his installations.

Mohamad-Said Baalbaki was born in South Lebanon in 1974, however during the Lebanese Civil War, Baalbaki was forced to relocate with his family to Beirut. In 1994, the artist pursued his fine arts education at the Institut des Beaux-Arts in Beirut. In 2002, after moving to Berlin, Said graduated from the Berlin University of Fine Arts with a Master of Arts from the Institut f端r Kunst im Kontext.

Oussama Baalbaki, born in 1978, graduated from the Lebanese University’s School of Fine Arts in 2002. In 1997, Baalbaki began drawing illustrations for several Lebanese newspapers. From 2003 to 2009, the artist was featured in consecutive exhibitions at the Sursock Museum in Beirut, Lebanon.
