Познакомьтесь с ВАШЕЙ СОБСТВЕННОЙ СОБСТВЕННОСТЬЮ, или, может быть, возьмите выходной день. The Louvre has just put its entire collection—all 482,000 pieces—online. “Today, the Louvre is dusting off its treasures, even the least-known,” its president, Jean-Luc Martinez, said in a statement. Только около 30 000 записей ранее были доступны для общественности. The Louvre is currently researching the provenance of its holdings, looking for Nazi and colonial looting, the Art Newspaper reports; its findings will likely be added to the database. (France has been accused of being slow to pursue restitution of Nazi-plundered works, TAN notes.) Right now, one can search for works grouped under the heading of Musées Nationaux Récupération, which were recovered after the war and whose rightful owner has not yet been established. (The Louvre manages them until then.) Among the nearly 1,800 pieces are paintings by ChardinDelacroix, and Corot , including this bewitching little piece by the latter  that shows a few people climbing into a riverboat.

EMBATTLED COLLECTOR LEON BLACK WILL NOT SEEK REELECTION as chairman of the Museum of Modern Art, the New York Times reports. Black’s three-year term is set to expire at the end of June. Some trustees had reportedly been pressuring him not to shoot for another term, ARTnews notes, because of payments he made to the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, and some artists have been calling on him to quit. (Black has not been accused of any wrongdoing.) The Times says that Black is expected to stay on the board after stepping down as chairman.

The head of the West Kowloon Cultural District, which includes the forthcoming M+ museum, said that Hong Kong police ultimately decide if its art meets the requirements of the new national security law. “If we receive a complaint or an enquiry from them, we would fully cooperate with them and find out the details of it, and of course comply with the law as any person or organization in Hong Kong should,” he said. [RTHK]

The Kicker

WHAT HAS ARTIST DUSTIN YELLIN BEEN UP TO RECENTLY, YOU ASK? The Pioneer Works founder answers, in the New York Times«Я потратил много времени на поиски камней в реках. Rocks have been around for millions and millions of years. Holding one is like having a time machine in your hand, as if it contains the condensed stories of civilizations that have risen and fallen . . .” Yellin has also “been thinking a lot about psychedelics.” [The New York Times]
