    Jeff Schofield is a sculptor and mixed art media artist who focuses on sustainability and the connection between humans and nature, and how they impact one another. Source: Replogle Studios/Youtube According to the Detroit News, Schofield was an architect for 25 years in Paris and Dubai before he turned to eco-art full time. He has created large pieces from razed barns and burned branches from local forest fires, weeds, and other plants that he’s found near his home in Pontiac, Michigan. He told Detroit News, “I want to be provocative,” he said. “I want to confront the viewer.” He refers to himself as a sustainable artist as he strictly uses objects that he finds for his work. Because of this, Schofield doesn’t know when inspiration will strike. Schofield told Detriot News that even during his long career as a successful architect, he was always drawn toward sustainability and environmentally friendly structures. He worked hard to get Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified buildings. When he first began to shift to art in 2008, he used objects...

    A MAN was shocked to find out the unassuming sketch he bought and stored for two years was actually a masterpiece worth £37 million. The anonymous buyer in his sixties picked up the unframed sketch of a mother and child at an estate sale for $30 (£22), in Concord, Massachusetts in 2016, not knowing the true value of the drawing. 1The drawing titled The Virgin and Child With a Flower on a Grassy Bench (1503) is said to be worth $50 millionCredit: Elliott Franks The drawing shows a mother holding a new-born baby elegantly drawn onto yellow linen with the monogram "A.D." sketched into the bottom. The man didn't suspect it was an original piece of artwork of any significance, even though it had one of the art world’s most well-known monograms. Now the artwork has been assessed by experts and scholars, who agree the sketch is an original piece by the 16th-century German Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer. It is the first “totally unknown” drawing by Dürer to resurface in half a century. The drawing was found at the home of the...

During a visit last year to a the nearby Church of the Holy Family, located only a few blocks away from campus, he saw the painting and was stunned."And I realized immediately it was an Italian Baroque painting," Ruggio said. "And I sort of did a double take, why is it here? I immediately got up and started to take to some bad pictures with my cellphone."Ruggio sent those pictures to art history colleagues in Italy and Manhattan.They connected the 46x57 inch artwork as one in a series of paintings by Cesare Dandini.They date back to the 1630s. This particular painting is called "Holy...

You can bring a painting to us if you’d like [laughs]!” Berg said. For months, they have been restoring “Jacob Wrestling with the Angel,” painted by Italian artist Cristoforo Roncalli in the early 17th century. “[Pope Urban VIII Barberini] commissioned this picture right before he became pope, so we know it’s from the early 1620s,” said MIA art curator Rachel McGarry. The three-person team is stripping it down, reinforcing its integrity, then refilling with techniques the original artist would’ve used.

    More On: vincent van gogh Inside NYC’s dueling Van Gogh exhibits: Here’s which one’s the original Van Gogh’s delirium caused by alcohol withdrawal, not syphilis, study says Researcher pinpoints location of Van Gogh’s last painting Van Gogh letter about his brothel visits fetches $236K at auction It’s Van Gogh-ing … going … gone!  For a cool $15.4 million, a newly unearthed Vincent Van Gogh masterpiece that was kept hidden by a French family for more than 100 years now has a new home.  The pricey painting, titled “A Street Scene in Montmartre,” sold Thursday during an auction livestreamed from Paris.  It trafficked exorbitantly high phone and online bids from art enthusiasts in the French capital, as well as in New York and Hong Kong. Although Van Gogh’s freshly exhumed tour de force went for a little over $15 million, it initially fetched a staggering $16.47 million hammer offer.  But auction house Sotheby’s experienced an unspecified glitch in its online bidding system that forced the vendors to redo the sale at the end of the event. The final — albeit...
    DENVER (CBS4) – The Denver Art Museum will place 85 artworks in new galleries beginning Sunday as part of The 19th Century in European Art on display for visitors to see in its permanent collection. The paintings capture the move artists made from antiquity to abstract in that time period. (credit: CBS) “It’s hard to think of other centuries where there have been so many changes, so many great transition such as in the 19th century,” said Angelica Daneo, the chief curator and curator of European Art before 1900 at the Denver Art Museum. “The artists that broke with tradition, broke with principals of the academy and created really a new art, a new movement pushing the boundaries.” Well-known artists like Monet, Renoir, and Cézanne will be on view as one gallery is dedicated to the French impressionist movement. The new layout will also include American artists and help to demonstrate how similar subject matters were explored differently on either side of the Atlantic. Paris became the art capital of the Western World in the 19th Century, according to Daneo,...
    Federal investigators are busy this Christmas season looking for a ‘grinch’ who stole a white Tesla that had an antique, 18th century violin said to be worth as much as $900,000 inside the vehicle which was left unlocked by its owner. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is asking for the public’s help in locating the vehicle and a 1710 Amati violin that was taken by a thief in the Los Feliz section of Los Angeles on December 8. The instrument, which is made of curly maple and alpine spruce, was said to be in excellent condition at the time it was stolen, according to the Los Angeles Times. Auction records indicate that the violin was sold in 2013 for slightly more than half a million dollars. If it were placed on auction today, it would likely fetch anywhere between $700,000 and $900,000.

When he returned from inside, the car and the prized possession were gone. A spokesperson for the FBI,...

    Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images John Cusack compared President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler in a new interview, specifically when it comes to the art of politics. The actor offered his take on why he believes Trump’s tactics are similar to those of the German dictator. “Hitler sort of stole from the avant-garde left,” Cusack said in an interview on WTF with Marc Maron. “He hated the message of the avant-garde left because it was anti-war, but he understood that politics was the new art and that art and politics were going to be infused. You can see Trump sort of doing the same thing.” Cusack went on to describe Trump’s political art style as “kistch futurism,” adding, “He’s saying, ‘I’m going to make America great and the future’s going to be a return to the past. Now, it’s a past that never existed. I’m lying. Everything I say is a lie.’” Maron agreed with Cusack’s assessment, saying Trump is “really good at fascist theater.” The actor pointed to the president’s rallies as an example. “He compares immigrants, people of color...
    (CNN)Stolen almost two decades ago from an ancient abbey in northeastern Italy, a trafficked 19th century art piece is making its way back home.The US Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency recovered a 19th century painting Wednesday looted from the Abbey of Santa Maria in Sylvis in Sesto al Reghena, Italy, in 2002, officials said in a statement. The stolen artwork, titled "the Assumption of the Virgin Mary," was painted by Italian artist Giuseppe Pappini in August 1851. ICE's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in Dallas was able to track down the painting after receiving a lead from the HSI Attaché Office in Rome, Italy, in 2019 according to the statement. The agents, specially trained in investigating the theft and trafficking of cultural heritage and art, traced the piece to a Dallas-area private art collector who bought the art from a dealer in 2015. The dealer had no knowledge that the piece was stolen, the statement said.Upon learning that the painting was taken illegally, the collector willingly released it to HSI to be returned to its rightful owner in Italy, the statement...
    The man brought a work of art that his family had owned decades ago to a television program, and there a specialist revealed the crude truth behind that painting. The work of the portraitist Lely, which was supposed to be from the 17th century, was neither Lely’s nor the 17th century. Photo: GEORGE DESIPRIS / Pexels The art world is a mystery that sometimes only experts can decode. In England, a man thought he had a very valuable painting, by who was supposed to be its author and by its antiquity. But it turned out that this work, which had been in his family for generations, it was not as valuable as he supposed. And discovering that fiasco left the man totally disappointed. It all happened this week on the air on the BBC television show, “Antiques Roadshow,” where people bring various family antiques for an art expert to evaluate and price. Maas said that the 1845 catalog the program participant had brought indicated that the painting was one of Lely’s, but there was a very...
    Nicolas Chow, chairman of Sotheby's Asia, holding the Harry Garner Reticulated Vase. Anthony Wallace/AFP via Getty Images A Chinese vase that was created for an 18th-century emperor was rediscovered after spending 50 years in an elderly woman's country home in Europe. The woman had multiple dogs and cats who "walked around freely," said Amsterdam-based art consultant Johan Bosch van Rosenthal, who saw the vase at the home. The vase was purchased for just $56 in 1954, but it sold at a Sotheby's auction in Hong Kong on Saturday for more than $9 million. "It is a miracle that this extraordinarily fragile vase survived half a century in a home surrounded by countless pets," said Nicolas Chow, chairman of Sotheby's Asia, in a statement. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. A Chinese vase that once sold for $56 was auctioned off on Saturday for $9,084,486 — after it was rediscovered in an elderly woman's pet-filled home.

    When the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia) opened in 1915 it exhibited 450 pieces of art, most of them on loan. In the twenty-first century it is an encyclopedic art museum, boasting a collection of more than 89,000 objects that span 20,000 years and six continents; special exhibitions on topics that have ranged from Star Wars to Martin Luther; and a presence in the community that reflects more than a century of local support for the arts. Mia was an outgrowth of the Minneapolis Society of Fine Arts (MSFA), which was founded in 1883 and maintained a small gallery on the top floor of the Minneapolis Public Library. At an MSFA dinner on January 10, 1911, financier DeWitt Clinton Morrison announced that he would donate ten acres of land so the society could build a museum, provided they could raise $500,000 for the building. MFSA President William Dunwoody immediately pledged $100,000, and a pledging frenzy ensued. Within ninety minutes, dinner guests had pledged another $250,000. The rest of the money was raised within the month. The Minneapolis Institute of Arts...
