Today in Art History: Happy Birthday Pierre-Auguste Renoir!

“Why shouldn’t art be pretty?
There are enough unpleasant things in the world.”
—PIERRE-AUGUSTE RENOIR
(Feb. 25, 1841 – Dec. 3, 1919)

The Google Art Project

Take a trip around the world’s greatest museums and discover the masters.

Whether you’re visiting a museum, attending a Park West Gallery cruise art auction event, or (if you’re lucky enough) in the comfort of your own home, there’s no experience like spending time looking at your favorite works of art in person. But you can’t always travel around the world, and even when you can, sometimes the works you go to see are unavailable for public viewing.

Google Art Project

The Park West Gallery bloggers have spent the morning playing around with the Google Art Project, a new website that allows the public to access some of the world’s greatest masterpieces, from anywhere in the world. The site launched today and can be explored at www.googleartproject.com.

Seventeen art museums from the United States, Europe, and Russia, are collaborating with Google on the Art Project, a website that enables users to discover and view more than 1,000 artworks online in extraordinary detail. The National Gallery (London), Museum of Modern Art (New York) and Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam) are among the museums involved in the collaboration.

The Art Project allows visitors to explore museums from around the world, discover and view hundreds of artworks at incredible zoom levels, and even create and share their own collection of masterpieces. Here’s how it works:

[Tip: When viewing the Park West Gallery Fine Art Collection, click the magnifying glass in the corner each work of art to activate the zoom feature — experience a more intimate view of the details, brushstrokes and textures used by each artist.]

Park West Gallery, with its Greco-Roman inspired architecture, is as beautiful on the outside as the art it exhibits. Inside, Park West Gallery is home to more than 20 individual galleries, displaying art created by masters such as Picasso, Rembrandt, and Chagall as well as renowned contemporary artists including Yaacov Agam and Linda Le Kinff. The galleries vary in size and can accommodate groups of any number. 

“It was such a pleasure having our annual ALIVE event at Park West Gallery,” said Peggy Burkhard, marketing and PR director for the Donate Life Coalition of Michigan. “The artwork and elegant surroundings served as an incredible backdrop for our fundraiser. We saved a significant amount of money by hosting our event there. The staff was extremely helpful. We would sincerely not be where we are today without Park West Gallery. We are extremely grateful.”

“As an event planner, I appreciate the professionalism and dedication that the Park West Gallery team shows to our organization. We would never be able to have such an elegant event if Park West Gallery wasn’t so generous as to donate the space. The ‘wow factor’ of holding an event in the Gallery cannot be duplicated in any other space in the Metro Detroit area, and we certainly see an increase in ticket sales just because of the location,” said Bryn Kerekes, event consultant for the Open Door charity benefit. “Each year our event grows, raising more and more funds for the Open Door, and without Park West Gallery that wouldn’t be possible. We will be there for many years to come.” 

“Park West Gallery has always been available for non-profits to use at no cost. With the holidays just around the corner, I’d like to extend an invitation to these organizations to host their fundraisers and parties at our gallery this year or any time in the future,” said Albert Scaglione, founder and CEO of Park West Gallery. “It is another way that Park West Gallery supports those in the community whose missions are to give back.”

Park West Gallery’s generosity to non-profits extends beyond the use of its physical location at no cost. Its Park West Gallery CARES initiative, through which the Gallery donates brand new clothing, fine art, and other items to charitable groups, has been extremely active in the Detroit, MI, Miami, FL, and other communities nationwide since its inception last summer. Through Park West Gallery CARES, Park West Gallery has been able to help countless organizations including the Grace Centers of Hope in Pontiac, MI, Calvary Chapel in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and many more.

New Exhibit Explores Picasso’s Passion for Horses

Pablo Picasso, Museo Picasso Malaga, Park West GalleryMALAGA—Cubist portraits of women, musicians and war –  those are the images that typically come to mind when one envisions the artwork of Pablo Picasso. A new exhibit at the Museo Picasso Málaga explores another, perhaps less well-known, subject for which the artist was passionate. Picasso. Horses is currently on view through September 5, 2010.

From the museum press release:

The very first painting by Pablo Picasso that was ever conserved was painted in Malaga when he was just eight years old, and there is a horse in it. Ever since then, and right into his old age, the horse appears again and again in Picasso’s work. He depicted everything symbolic, noble, grotesque, human and mythological about the beast. Pack-animal, weapon of warfare, element of the bullfight, graceful circus acrobat, fighting stud, harmless wooden toy, winged Pegasus… The horse appears constantly in the work of Pablo Picasso, from the time he painted The Little Yellow Picador after attending a bullfight in Malaga’s La Malagueta bullring in 1889, right up to his latter years in the 1960s, in Mougins (France), where he died in 1973.

The Picasso. Horses exhibition brings together over fifty works: oil paintings, drawings and engravings are displayed alongside ceramics, a delicate paper cut-out silhouette, and a copy of the stage costume designed by the artist for the famous production Parade, by the Ballets Russes. The collection enables viewers to discover the symbolic importance of the horse in Picasso’s work, as well as the many meanings he gave to its figure and the wide range of techniques he employed.
