Eighteen Schools Sanctioned by Southern Accreditor
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
article
The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools has put five colleges on probation, three because of financial instability and two because of questions about their institutional effectiveness. As has become common in this region, several of the punished institutions are historically black. The regional accreditor placed or continued another thirteen institutions on warning status, at least two of them—including the high-profile Miami Dade College—because they could not document that they had sufficient numbers of full-time faculty members.

The Artist's Studio and the Family
Art History Now    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When considering the relationship between the family and the artist's studio, it is necessary to bring in the notion of space. The question to be posed is this: in what ways did family and artistic space overlap in the history of the studio? To help us focus on this problem, we can look at an unusual painting by the seventeenth-century artist Gerard van Honthorst: Margereta de Roodere and Her Parents (1652). More

Australian Censors Eye Ratings System for Artworks
Advertiser via via News.com.au    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The visual-arts industry in Australia is appalled by a proposal to apply a classification scheme to artworks exhibited in galleries across the nation. A senate committee review of the national classification scheme has recommended controversial artwork, such as Bill Henson's divisive images of children, be subject to the same classifications as movies, TV, and video games. Debate raged about the recommended measure, which the art industry fears may lead to unnecessary censorship. More



MFA Makes Amends in Probable Plundering
Boston Globe    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Museum of Fine Arts has agreed to pay restitution to the heir of a Jewish art dealer killed at Auschwitz after determining that a seventeenth-century Dutch painting in its collection was once owned by him and was probably plundered by the Nazis. With the deal, which culminates a more than decade-long investigation by the museum, the MFA remains at the leading edge of an emerging museum practice to proactively research works with little ownership history and make amends if they are found to have been acquired under questionable circumstances.

A Resurgence in Art Buying over the Web
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Roland Sledge, a lawyer for an oil and gas company in Houston, is no art world habitué. He began collecting prints and works on paper a little more than a decade ago, focusing on Abstract Expressionism, and has done some business with small New York galleries. "I don't have a lot of connections," he added. But Sledge, and a growing number of collectors like him, have lately been demonstrating that connections may not be as important as they once were—and that online sales, a segment of the art business given up for dead not long ago, are becoming an increasingly important part of its future.

Interest in Pablo Picasso's portraits of his lover, Marie-Thérèse Walter, continues to exceed art-world expectations. In London, the rarely seen Jeune Fille Endormie fetched £13.5 million ($21.9 million) at auction. It was the second-highest price realized at the auction (exceeded only by the £18 million paid for a Picasso portrait of his next lover) and good news for the University of Sydney, which will use the proceeds from the painting's sale for scientific research.
