Via: Westdeutsche Zeitung

It has been over four months since Helge Achenbach, one of Germany's top art advisers, was arrested. Yesterday, prosecutors in the city of Essen charged him for defrauding the late billionaire and Aldi supermarket heir Berthold Albrecht on 23 separate counts resulting in damages totaling approximately €23 million. Since June 10, the art adviser has been held behind bars under what is calledUntersuchungshaft, a pretrial investigatory detention phase (see "€18 million Fraud Claim Against Art Adviser").

Prosecutors charged Achenbach following an investigation into claims made by Albrecht's widow, Babette Albrecht, that the art adviser allegedly marked up purchase invoices for artworks and vintage automobiles to earn higher commissions. However, in an exclusive interview with artnet News, Achenbach's wife, Dorothee Achenbach, denied the accusations. “They had a good relationship," she explained, speaking of her husband and Albrecht. "Helge showed Berthold a new world—the art world—and later the world of vintage cars, which was something that gave Berthold happiness. I am deeply convinced that Berthold did not feel scammed."

According to Art Magazin, the collection that Albrecht built with Achenbach's help included museum quality works by Picasso and Monet as well as works of postwar and contemporary art by Gerhard Richter,Roy Lichtenstein, and Sigmar Polke. Mrs. Achenbach told artnet News: “It's important to point out that no loss of wealth took place. Some of the paintings have increased tremendously in value."

In an earlier interview, the Berlin-based gallerist Michael Schultz toldMonopol that the three to five percent commission that Berthold Albrecht negotiated with Achenbach was, in his opinion, inadequate. According to Schultz, “Nobody can cover their costs with three percent commission," considering the amount of money and time Achenbach would have invested in research costs and travel. Schultz added, “When a collector's lust is satisfied by the object he desires, a commission of three percent is too low. By far."

According to Mrs. Achenbach, while Berthold Albrecht was prepared to spend enormous sums on paintings and vintage automobiles, Babette Albrecht may not have approved of all of her husband's expenditures. Mrs. Achenbach told artnet News, “I had the personal impression that later, she did not agree with the purchase of the classic cars."

In response to artnet News's request for comment, prosecutors in Essen stated that they were not prepared to disclose the identity of the fraud victims or details of the individual transactions of artworks or automobiles at issue in their case. Babette Albrecht could not be reached for comment.

At the end of September, the Düsseldorf District Court announced in a statement that Mrs. Achenbach filed a counter-suit against her husband's accusers, claiming that she is the sole owner of four artworks valued at €530,000. Mr. Achenbach's assets were frozen shortly after his arrest in June. The artworks include one painting by Günther Uecker, one painting by Thomas Schönauer, as well as two ceramic pieces. Mrs. Achenbach is scheduled to appear in court on November 11, only thirty minutes after her husband's first court appointment (see "Achenbach's Wife Wants her Artworks Back").

Mrs. Achenbach says that irrespective of the outcome of the upcoming trial, Albrecht's accusations and the resulting media attention have already taken their toll on her husband, his family, and the art community at large. Mrs. Achenbach confirmed that her husband's health has deteriorated, having had to be rushed to a clinic due to heart problems. She says that Achenbach's restricted visitation rights of two visitors every two weeks while in detention have left his young children unable to see their father.

Mrs. Achenbach said that even before he was "charged, [his] livelihood has been destroyed, [his] livelihood and reputation."

In his interview with Monopol Michael Schultz went as far as to say thatthe whole [art] industry has been dragged through the mud," claiming that the media's coverage of the Achenbach affair have reinforced the public's view of the art market as a murky business lacking transparency.

IN THE AIR

Picasso comes back to Paris

Following five years of works and a last straight line to meet the deadline, including a much commented change of president when Anne Baldassari was fired and replaced by Laurent Le Bon, the musée Picasso will finally reopen on 25 October. It was postponed various times, but the date was too precious to be missed: indeed it is the anniversary of the birth in Malaga, in 1881, of a giant of 20th century art. The exhibit space has been tripled and enriched with an auditorium. But the itinerary is somewhat puzzling. There are very few indications and a choice to combine a chronologic al and themed approach. The first room is the perfect example, with works from the artist?s youth next to the Jeune Peintre, Picasso?s last work, painted in the spring of 1972. The works are hung according to the emotion and the ?pure? aesthetic shock they give, something like what the museum of quai Branly did. But this is at the cost of any pedagogical approach, considered a bit old fashioned? The sheer number of works, a result of the colossal donation in 1979, allows the visitor to follow all the artist?s itinerary, scattering icons throughout the rooms ? the Flûte de Pan, the portraits of Olga and Dora Maar, the Acrobate, the Chèvre, the Massacre en Corée or the Tête de taureau (the famous combination of a bicycle seat and handle bar, which one can easily miss since it hangs high on the wall). Not to mention Picasso?s personal collection: his Cézannes, Renoirs, Matisses and Derains, his African and Oceanian masks, which all enjoy a beautiful display on the last floor.

Carles Casagemas, Casa de citas, MNAC Barcelona.

In memory of Casagemas

BARCELONA ? He was Picasso?s best friend in Paris. By committing suicide in a dramatic manner during a Parisian dinner party, this tortured and impotent artist (frustrated in his female relations) reached the status of a myth. Picasso was in Spain at the moment of the terrible act, but he left a memorable painting of his dead friend which can be seen in the first room of the musée Picasso, in Paris. What really was the story of artist Casagemas, who died so young (1880-1901)? This is the central question of this long-awaited retrospective. But we will only get a tentative answer as there are but few works of the Catalan artist, among them Maison de rendez-vous which belongs to the museum.

Portrait of Picasso as a T.V. viewer

MALAGA ? How did Picasso, the great communicator with the Eternal through his art and photography, react when television was invented? When Jacqueline Roque bought one TV set at the beginning of the sixties, Picasso looked at it with interest, and followed in particular the programs on circuses (« La piste aux étoiles »), and on wrestling. According to curator Laurence Madeline, he echoed it in his engravings ? for example in Suite 347 - with angles and characters inspired from T.V. programs or Western movies. And he demonstrated, at more than 80 years old, a curiosity and capacity to renew himself that were unaffected.

Duncan's eye

BARCELONA ? Among the photographers who immortalised Picasso, David Douglas Duncan, 98 years old, is the eldest one still alive. After covering the combats in the Pacific and then the Korean War, the encounter in 1956 with Picasso was a radical change for him. Their friendship, marked by the great freedom Picasso allowed him to have, lasted until the death of the latter in 1973. For the 50th anniversary of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona in 2013, Duncan donated 161 photographs. They cover the last years, the ?Jacqueline years » at Mougins: a lot of ceramics and engravings, a peaceful harmony with his children Claude and Paloma (prior to the brutal separation from their mother Françoise Gilot when she published Life with Picasso in 1964), the meals, the paintings, the walks in the garden.

André Villers, a tribute to Picasso

Just like Lucien Clergue, he was a very young photographer Picasso trusted and even gave his very first camera. For twenty years, André Villers (born in 1930) documented Picasso?s daily life in Cannes (at the villa La Californie), then in Mougins, his last residence, and created some truly historic photos. André Villers was undoubtedly influenced by the master?s polymorphism and had also tried to make metamorphoses (sometimes together with Picasso himself) cutting out, repainting and recomposing his own photographs. His most recent collages (essentially from the 1990s), exhibited in a gallery very near the musée Picasso, show the influence of the brilliant Andalusian artist was not dimed by time.

BOOKS

Investigations into Picasso

The Cahiers de l?Herne are known for their monographies on the major figures in literature and the arts. This one, dedicated to Picasso, is no exception. Over nearly 400 pages, it has voices of the past intervene such as Simone de Beauvoir, Paul Morand or Maurice Rheims, as well as current specialists (among them Anne Baldassari and Claude Picasso). The slightly iconoclastic approach is obvious in the themes dealt with, which do not intend to cover all of Picasso but of shedding light on certain zones, which at times are obscure: his relationship with Staline, his surrealist theater, his influence in Latin America, his interpretation by Jung. The volume is purposely not illustrated but nevertheless it includes a very original central notebook: it is dedicated to the poems from 1935 to 1938, written on plain unheaded paper, index cards or notebooks. There is still a Picasso to be discovered.

Emile Bernard (1868-1941) Du 17 septembre 2014 au 5 janvier 2015

Emile Bernard (1868-1941)

Du 17 septembre 2014 au 5 janvier 2015

Peintre, graveur, mais aussi critique d'art, écrivain et poète, Emile Bernard est une personnalité majeure dans l'élaboration de l'art moderne. A la fin des années 1880, il inaugure le style cloisonniste, dont on sait l'importance qu'il revêtira chez Gauguin et Van Gogh, dont Bernard fut proche, mais aussi chez les Nabis.

Après la controverse sur l'invention du symbolisme en peinture, qui l'oppose violemment à Gauguin, Bernard s'installe au Caire où il reconsidère la stylisation schématique et la recherche de primitivisme symboliste. La découverte des maîtres anciens l'incitera cependant à renouer avec la tradition.

De retour en France, il publie des témoignages fondamentaux sur Cézanne et des écrits esthétiques remettant en cause les avant-gardes au nom de la tradition picturale. Mais, loin de se définir par un traditionalisme suranné, son art porte toujours la marque d'une personnalité curieuse et tourmentée, à la recherche de l'absolu artistique.

Cette exposition sera la première à présenter la longue carrière de cet artiste protéiforme, dont les mutations successives participent à chaque fois d'une redéfinition de la personnalité et remettent en cause la notion mêm de style.

We begin with an unprecedented journey to the heart of lithography in the company of the grandson of Fernand Mourlot, who initiated Picasso in the art of lithography, and in the presence of the Mourlot printing presses, which continue to run under the name of IDEM thanks to Patrice Forest. Next, we delve deep into a painting from Picasso's blue period, La vie, in a study by Reyes Jiménez from the Museu Picasso in Barcelona. And, last but not least, a few recent items of Picasso-related news.

Ruští agenti ukradli Gutenbergovu bibli, první tišt?nou knihu sv?ta

Ruští agenti ukradli Gutenbergovu bibli, první tišt?nou knihu sv?ta

7. ?ervna 2014 8:18
Trojice agent? ruské tajné služby FSB ukradla z archivu moskevské univerzity bibli, která pochází p?ímo z dílny Johannese Gutenberga. Unikátní knihu z 15. století se poté snažili prodat sb?ratel?m. Od soudu ve ?tvrtek odešli s nepodmín?nými tresty.

Sergej Vediš?ev, Michail Lepkov a Viktor Puška v univerzitním areálu zodpovídali za bezpe?nost. Velitelé tajné služby FSB však záhy zjistilo, že d?ležitý úkol patrn? nesv??ili t?m pravým. Z depozitá?e Lomonosovy univerzity totiž nedávno zmizela dvousvazková bible obrovské hodnoty.

Jedna z prvních tišt?ných knih na sv?t?, kterou v polovin? patnáctého století v N?mecku vytvo?il samotný vynálezce knihtisku Johannes Gutenberg, by se podle odborník? dala prodat za 15 milion? eur, v p?epo?tu asi 412 milion? korun. Pokud by se však bible prodávala v aukci, její cena by mohla vystoupat ješt? mnohem výš.

"Tito pánové nebyli práv? odborníci naum?ní," rýpla si do trojice zlod?j? mluv?í moskevského soudu Irina žirnovová. Agenti FSB totiž vzácné knihy nabízeli za pouhých 40 milion? rubl?, tedy zhruba 23 milion? korun.

Agenti z bible vy?ízli kus listu

"Jeden z nich se k té vzácné knize zkrátka dostal a trojici poté napadlo, že by ji mohli zpen?žit," vylí?ila žirnovová pohnutky, kterézam?stnanceFSB ke krádeži vedly. O celé kauze informoval deník Kommersant.

Mimo?ádn? výhodnou nabídku od Vediš?eva dostalsb?ratelMark Treveljan. Nízká cena jej však zasko?ila a necht?l zpo?átku v?bec v??it, že jde skute?n? o originální výtisk z patnáctého století. Aby jej p?esv?d?ili, vy?ízli agenti z bible ?ást jednoho listu. Než se kniha vrátí do univerzitního depozitá?e, musí se jí chopit restauráto?i.

Plukovník Vediš?ev, který celou akci naplánoval, stráví podle ?tvrte?ního rozsudku t?i a p?l roku v trestanecké kolonii. Jeho komplic, major Michail Lepkov, dostal rok a dva m?síce. Kapitán Viktor Puška vyvázl s ro?ním trestem, soudní sí? však mohl rovnou opustit. Všichni t?i zlod?ji už totiž strávili rok ve vazebních celách.

Unikátní soubor um?leckých d?l p?edevším tv?rc? ?eské moderny získala p?ed ?asem Národní galerie v Praze z odkazu léka?ky Aleny žižkové Lind. Kolekci d?l od autor?, mezi nimiž byli surrealisté Toyen a Jind?ich Štyrský, Josef Šíma, Jan Zrzavý, Rudolf Kremli?ka, František Tichý nebo František Muzika, ode dneška galerie p?edstavuje v Konírn? paláce Kinských na Starom?stském nám?stí.

Výstava se jmenuje Ne?ekané d?dictví, protože tak v roce 2010 NG více než 20 um?leckých d?l významných autor? moderny získala. Soubor pochází ze sbírky Aleny žižkové Lind (1926 až 2009), která jej p?vodn? cht?la odkázat anonymn?, ale na poradu p?átel se v poslední v?li k vlastnictví p?ihlásila.

Galerie oce?uje ušlechtilé mecenášské gesto

"O jejím úmyslu jsme se dozv?d?li až po její smrti p?i poz?stalostním ?ízení. Ušlechtilost takového po?inu nevídáme ?asto, proto se Národnígalerierozhodla celou sbírku vystavit nejen pro její ojedin?lost, ale také z respektu k mecenášskému gestu," ?íká kurátorka výstavy Zuzana Novotná ze Sbírky grafiky a kresby.

U n?kterých d?l z?stala poznámka o zajímavé provenienci nebo o jejich vystavení. Nap?íklad Preislerova kresba pocházela ze sbírky psychoanalytika a surrealisty Bohuslava Brouka, Kremli?kova kresba byla zmajetkubratra Václava Špály Rudolfa.

Veletržní palác vystavuje Šímovy grafické listy

NG také dnes zahajuje novou výstavu ve Veletržním paláci, která ukáže soubor p?ípravných kreseb a výsledných grafických list? Josefa Šímy k básnické sbírce Pierra Jeana Jouva Ztracený ráj. Šíma se ve svých 30 letech usadil ve Francii a po celý život m?l úzký vztah k poezii a p?átelil se s básníky. Tato p?átelství se v ?ad? p?ípad? prom?nila v tv?r?í spolupráci.

Ur?ující pro n?j bylo setkání s mladými básníky Rogerem Gilbertem Lecomtem a René Daumalem, s nimiž založil skupinu Vysoká hra. Pozd?ji v Šímov? život? sehráli d?ležitou úlohu další auto?i, mezi n?ž pat?il i práv? Francouz Pierre Jean Jouve. Ve 20. a 30. letech ilustroval Šíma n?kolik jeho knih a jejich spolupráce vyvrcholila v roce 1938 Šímovými kresbami k Jouvovým sbírkám Ztracený ráj a Kyrie.
