Now on view at the Museo Nacional Centre de Arte Reina Sofia is “La invención del siglo XX. Carl Einstein y la Vanguardias” (The invention of the 20th century: Carl Einstein and the Avant Garde), which includes our painting “The Apple” (above) by Georges Braque. In fact, the Reina Sofia features it on their website.
The Academy constantly receives requests for loans from museums around the world. Our “Lady Meux” by Whistler took a trip to Italy last year to be in the exhibition “America: Storie di pittura dal Nuovo Mondo” at the Santa Giulia Museo della Città, van Gogh’s “Wheat Fields” spent the fall in Vienna at the Albertina, and this summer two of our Georgia O’Keeffe paintings of ‘Iao Valley go to the Orange County Museum of Art for the traveling exhibition “Illumination: The Paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe, Agnes Pelton, Agnes Martin, and Florence Pierce.” That’s why our registrars—Pauline Sugino, Cynthia Low, Celeste Ohta—are so important. They track and ensure the safety of the artworks as we share them with the rest of the world.
