The Devil and the Art Dealer

It was the greatest art theft in history: 650,000 works looted from Europe by the Nazis, many of which were never recovered. But last November the world learned that German authorities had found a trove of 1,280 paintings, drawings, and prints worth more than a billion dollars in the Munich apartment of a haunted white-haired recluse.

Dealing Direct: Do Artists Really Need Galleries?
Art Newspaper
When Haunch of Venison closed in 2013, the Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos was left without a gallery in London or New York—the two cities where Haunch, which was bought by Christie's in 2007, had spaces. Since her gallery closed, Vasconcelos's career has been on an upward trajectory: she has represented Portugal at the Venice Biennale, unveiled public sculptures in Porto and Lisbon, and produced several new works for a retrospective at the Manchester Art Gallery.

The Best Prospective Law Students Read Homer (and Study Art History)

Low Expectations, High Stakes

More than half the nation's most vulnerable college students are in courses taught by part-time, adjunct faculty members who lack the job security, credentials, and experience of full-time professors—as well as the campus support their full-time peers receive. Community colleges rely on part-time, "contingent" instructors to teach 58 percent of their courses, according to a new report.

Team-Based Learning for Art Historians
Art History Teaching Resources
Recently two professors participated in a workshop on team-based learning at Brooklyn College, a process in which students are divided into permanent teams for the semester and work during class on activities based on readings. Team-based learning was developed by professors working with business and marketing majors in large lecture classes. While claims that students reportedly read and engage more are attractive, can this model be applied to an art-history class?

Precocious Professionalism: An Academic Epidemic?
Perspectives on History
The job crisis facing young American PhDs today has an analogue in one earlier historical period: the situation of newly minted lawyers and physicians in early-nineteenth-century France. After the French Revolution abolished the guilds, regulation of recruitment ceased in not only artisanal crafts and mercantile trades but also faculties of law and medicine. As the number of law and medical students soared, employment prospects correspondingly diminished.

Meanwhile, the Art Institute of Chicago will soon launch an app that transforms visitors' smartphones into pocket-sized curators. Like many digital projects, the Art Institute's app and the MFA Boston's upgrades received a green light only because of external funding.
