LOS ANGELES, CA.- In 1941 the Swiss art critic Pierre Courthion interviewed Henri Matisse while the artist was in bed recovering from a serious operation. It was an extensive interview, seen at the time as a vital assessment of Matisse’s career and set to be published by Albert Skira’s then newly established Swiss press. After months of complicated discussions between Courthion and Matisse, and just weeks before the book was to come out—the artist even had approved the cover design—Matisse suddenly refused its publication. A typescript of the interview now resides in Courthion’s papers at the Getty Research Institute.

During the Geometric period, monumental grave markers were introduced in the form of large vases, often decorated with funerary representations. On this magnificent krater, the main scene, which occupies the widest portion of the vase, shows the prothesis, a ritual in ancient Greek funerary practice in which the deceased is laid out on a high bed (bier), usually within the house. During the prothesis, relatives and friends may come to mourn and pay their respects to the deceased. Here, the figure seated at the foot of the bier may be the dead man's wife, and the smaller figure on her lap their child.

“Prometheus” (Prométhée), a head cast in bronze by Constantin Brancusi in 1911, sold yesterday evening for 12,682,000 USD New York, in an auction of impressionist and modern art organized by Sotheby’s, Mediafax reports. Brancusi’s sculpture, a 17.7 cm leaning head to one side cast in four similar bronzes in 1911, comes from an “important private collection in Europe”, according to the Sotheby’s catalogue. The auction started out at USD 4.75 M and within minutes jumped in excess of USD 10 M to reach the final sale price of 11.25 M, way over organizers’ original estimate of USD 6 to 8 M. The New York auction also set an all-time high sales record, with Munch’s “The Scream” fetching USD 119.9 M. Brancusi’s less-valued “The Distaff” (Quenouille 1923), a wood sculpture – went on the auction.
