    Unseen For Over A Century, Renoir Mini Goes On Display

    small version of Renoir’s La Loge ("The Theater Box"), one of the most
    celebrated Impressionist images, is being shown to the public for the
    first time since 1875, the year after it was painted, the London Times
    reports. Courtauld Institute Galleries in London is exhibiting it
    through February 21 alongside the full version, which depicts the
    artist’s brother, Edmond, and a model, Nini, at the Paris Opera. It is
    expected to sell for more than its estimated value of $6.95 million at
    Sotheby’s on February 5. (Artinfo, January 30, 2008)

    Danish Library To Acquire Controversial Cartoons

    national library wants to house the cartoon images of the prophet
    Muhammad that sent shock waves and sparked protests throughout the
    Islamic world two years ago after they were published in Western
    newspapers, the Guardian reports. The library in Copenhagen has said it
    is trying to acquire the drawings for "preservation purposes" and is in
    negotiations with the 12 artists who drew them. The library also said
    the decision was not meant to be controversial, and it was not planning
    to display the works publicly. "We are not interested in an exhibition,
    we are interested in them being kept safe for future generations
    because they have created history in Denmark," Jytte Kjaergaard, a
    spokeswoman for the library, told the Guardian. "This is the obvious
    place to keep them because we have all the security measures in
    place."  (Artinfo, January 30, 2008)
