    Bansky’s Self Criticism

    Banksy says the first major exhibition of his work in New York, at Vanina Holasek Gallery, is unauthorized, Bloomberg reports. The artist, whose primary dealer is Lazarides Gallery in London, said on his Web site that the Chelsea show, featuring 62 paintings and prints sourced by London’s Bankrobber Gallery, is "unlikely to be worth visiting."

     Zeisler’s Gifts

    Thanks to the low-profile Manhattan private investor and art collector Richard S. Zeisler, who died in March, 16 art institutions are welcoming important 20th-century works into their collections, reports the New York Times. Zeisler, who had no immediate family, divided his collection of some 110 works, valued at around $100 million, among institutions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the National Gallery of Art in Washington and the Museum of Modern Art. (Artinfo, December 7, 2007)
