  Art and the Religious Image in El Greco's Italy
by Andrew R. Casper

“In a probing and illuminating fashion, Casper reveals the ways in which El Greco’s encounter with both Counter-Reformation theological ideas and Venetian and Roman art and art theory enabled him to transform himself from a provincial painter of icons in the Byzantine manner to a truly modern painter of devotional images” —Steven F. Ostrow, University of Minnesota

Comment on George Bellows Painting Sold by Randolph College
CAA News
CAA endorses the deaccessioning policies of AAM and AAMD, which mandate that once a museum approves the serious step of a sale of works from its holdings, those proceeds be put toward the collection and not toward institutional operating costs. The recent sale of the George Bellows painting Men of the Docks from the Maier Museum at Randolph College violates these principles.

CAA and the Monuments Men
CAA News
George Clooney's new film The Monuments Men, based on Robert Edsel's book of the same name, demonstrates the contributions of art historians who investigated the thousands of art works and archival manuscripts looted by the Nazis and secretly stored in mines around Germany during the WWII. Members of ACLS initiated the interest in saving European monuments during WWII, and many CAA members participated in the recovery efforts.

The Monuments Men Did More Than Rescue Nazi-Looted Art
Los Angeles Times
The greatest Rubens altarpiece in America is in Ohio, at the Toledo Museum of Art. We have the Monuments Men to thank for that. George Clooney's galumphing all-star movie The Monuments Men did not impress the critics—"inert," lamented the Los Angeles Times movie critic Kenneth Turan—but the real-life story of soldiers sent to protect and rescue Europe's great artworks during and after World War II is impressive. So was its aftermath.

How American Museums Protected Their Art from the Nazis
The Atlantic
Last weekend, George Clooney's newest film, The Monuments Men, arrived in theaters, highlighting a fascinating chapter in World War II. Beginning in 1943, the Monuments Men dutifully retrieved canvases and confiscated heirlooms stashed in salt mines and inconspicuous locations across the continent (and later Japan). Given the inconceivable scope of the cultural upheaval, it's understandable that one element of the story remains largely overlooked: the precautions taken to protect artworks on American soil.

Who Owns This Image?
New Yorker
CAA, an organization of about fourteen thousand artists, scholars, and curators, recently released a report on the state of fair use in the visual arts. The association commissioned Patricia Aufderheide and Peter Jaszi, a law professor at American, to be the principal investigators, who found that most professionals have no idea how to employ fair use. As a result, they wrote: "Their work is constrained and censored, most powerfully by themselves, because of that confusion and the resulting fear and anxiety."

When Cost Cutting and Staff Costs Are Passed Off as Reductions in Administrative Bloat

At the end of December, the Wall Street Journal published an article by Steve Herbert titled "Colleges Trim Staffing Bloat." So, if you did not read any further than the title, you might think that all of the attention to administrative bloat as a cost-driver in American higher education was finally producing some results.

Great Art Needs an Audience
Art Newspaper
As the virtual replaces the physical and the world gets globalized, we've been hearing that art galleries, settled in a single place, are bound to be on their way out. Collectors are now more likely to buy at a fair than from a dealer's home base; some may do their art shopping online. A few midrange dealers, especially, are already closing their galleries, to conduct all their business in private, at fairs, or by JPEG. I believe that these changes put art itself at risk.

Art at Arm's Length: A History of the Selfie
Vulture
We live in the age of the selfie. A fast self-portrait, made with a smartphone's camera and immediately distributed and inscribed into a network, is an instant visual communication of where we are, what we're doing, who we think we are, and who we think is watching. Selfies have changed aspects of social interaction, body language, self-awareness, privacy, and humor, altering temporality, irony, and public behavior.
