The private art and furniture collection of the famed architect and designer of Sydney Opera House Jørn Utzon is going under the hammer at Bruun Rasmussen Auctioneers in Copenhagen in June.

The Rijksmuseum has purchased a large canvas by the 17th-century painter Jan Asselijn at The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) in Maastricht. The painting shows the breach of the St. Anthony’s Dike (now the Zeeburger Dike) in Amsterdam, which resulted from the St. Peter’s Flood of 1651. The purchase was made possible with the support of the Scato Gockinga Fund / Rijksmuseum Fund, the Turing Foundation and an anonymous donor. To celebrate its 10-year role as a main sponsor of the Rijksmuseum, ING also contributed to the acquisition.

Jan Asselijn (c.1610-1652), who personally witnessed the flood in Amsterdam in 1651, recorded the breach of the dam in both a journalistic and a dramatic sense.

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston is receiving a major gift of 186 works seized by Nazi forces in 1938.

It’s taken decades for the donor’s family to recover the famed collection that includes fine jewelry, rare books and paintings. The objects have taken a fascinating journey between Vienna and Boston.

One of the confiscated works is a Dutch painting of a man on a horse titled, “A Dordrecht nobleman on horseback with retainers and grooms.” But instead of focusing on the front of the canvas, MFA curator of provenance Victoria Reed points to numbers and letters on the back. They’ve been drawn, etched and stamped onto the painting’s wooden stretcher.

There is now only one major art and antiques show in Palm Beach, and that’s the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art and Antique Show (PBJAAS). The American International Fine Art Fair (AIFAF), which has always preceeded the PBJAAS, was recently cancelled after 18 years. Over the past ten years the PBJSAAS has continually grown as a result of CEO Scott Diament’s tireless pursuit to become one of the top shows in the world. John Smiroldo, CEO of InCollect and Antiques & Fine Art magazine remarked, “Scott’s unbridled enthusiasm and seemingly unlimited marketing budget is incredible. Scott truly believes in what he is doing. His promotion of his shows and the industry as a whole is unprecedented and extremely important to the trade.”

Scott Diamant, CEO of the PBSG, remarks “this is a phenomenal opportunity for us to make the show even stronger. We will use the extra time this year to enhance the look of the show and provide a true VIP experience for major collectors. Wait until you see what we do in 2016, it will be a game changer.”
