Venice Carnevale 2018
Most people would associate Carnival with two cities Rio de Janeiroo and Venice. Venetian carnival is a sophisticated, mysterious and elegant affair. Where porcelain masks, extravagant gowns and exotic feathers collide. It is believed that Carnivale began in response to the victory of the Venetian Republic against the patriarch of Aquileia. In honour of this symbolic victory the Venetian people gathered and danced in San Marco square. The festival became an official celebration in the Renaissance period. The Baroque festival has inspired travellers, artists and writers ever since. Attracting 3 million visitors a year. The Festa della Marie event kicks off at Piazza San Marco, like many centuries ago, where Venetian ladies dressed by Atelier Pietro Longhi will be followed by a historical period costume procession. During the two week event their will be daily festivals and historical reenactments of battles between feudal families. The Balled of the masks return once again this year. The Grand Finale will take place on Shrove Tuesday, February 13, with crowning of the winner of the 2018 edition of the ‘Festa delle Marie’, who will arrive in the Square at the end of the water procession departing from San Giacomo dell’Orio, and at 5.00 pm, the Flight of the Lion in St. Mark’s Square will mark the end of the celebrations.
“The idea of this year’s Carnival – says Artistic Director Marco Maccapani – is to pay tribute to an age-old form of entertainment – the circus – made of amazement, skill, acrobatics and magic; where the settings, roles, skills and imagination intermingle in a surprising mix that conveys timeless emotions. This tradition is also being re-enacted to commemorate Federico Fellini, who was a great admirer of the circus”.

Beyond Boundaries: Avant-Garde Masterworks from a European Collection – New York/Geneva/Paris – Nov-Dec 2017
New York/Geneva/Paris – Christie’s is honoured to be entrusted with the sale of masterworks from an important European private collection, Beyond Boundaries: Avant-Garde Masterworks from a European Collection which will be offered throughout the second half of 2017 in New York, Geneva, and Paris. This ground-breaking collection was assembled by a couple with a keen eye for rare exceptional works of art and design. The collection is expected to achieve in the region of $30,000,000 and comprises around 180 works from five categories: Impressionist and Modern Art, Post-War and Contemporary Art, Magnificent Jewels, African Art and Design. The Modern and Post-War works of art were assembled with the guidance of renowned advisor Alain Tarica, who also advised Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé as well as Hubertus and Renate Wald. This collection is led by Wassily Kandinsky’sImprovisation mit Pferden (Studie für Improvisation 20), which is estimated at between $10,000,000 and 15,000,000, and was executed in 1911, the year Kandinsky produced the first abstract oil painting in history.
Guillaume Cerutti, CEO of Christie’s: “This collection is without doubt one of the greatest moments of the autumn season; not only because this group of around 180 works, comprising design, modern art, jewellery and some African sculptures is of the highest quality and refinement, but also because this collection has a soul, a unique spirit. It is obvious that every object has been chosen with passion and with an extraordinary liberty by the collectors. The result is a beautiful testimony for dialogue between arts and styles”.
