Spectre Spectacular Directed bySam Mendes Produced by Michael G. Wilson Barbara Broccoli Screenplay by John Logan Neal Purvis Robert Wade Jez Butterworth[1] Story by John Logan Neal Purvis Robert Wade Based on James Bond by Ian Fleming Starring Daniel Craig Christoph Waltz Léa Seydoux Ben Whishaw Naomie Harris Dave Bautista Monica Bellucci Ralph Fiennes Cinematography Hoyte van Hoytema Eon Productions Distributed by Metro-Goldwyn Meyer

Spectre 007 does not disappoint.  A brilliant adventure film like we like them. Splendid cast led by Daniel Craig in tip top form, wow what stamina.  Sam Mendes, the Director,  heads up a  phenomenal production team. A screenplay team led by John Logan.  Spectacular action scenes around the World for the latest Bond 007 film. Brilliant visuals of a city in Latin America to an exciting  dash down the narrow streets of a European Capital. Breathtaking Stunning action scenes in the air with an acrobatic helicopter. Plenty of scope for specially composed music. Glimmers of a 1970’s menacing Costa Gavras towards the end.  However, sensual Lea Seydoux has to be the secret weapon of the film. A French discovery, Lea Seydoux  does not seem to be a conventional Beauty, but she is riveting sexy….. Ian Fleming’s hero lives on……..

Helly Nahman

Helly Nahmad stunned the art world with his 2014 exhibit @ Frieze Masters, with his reconstitution of a 1960’s Paris Apartment of an “intellectual”.  This year again the Art Concept for 2015 is equally intriguing. Jean Dubuffet & The Asylum. In the asylum presentation works by Jean Dubuffet are reconnected with the art that originally inspired them. Dubuffet coined the phrase ART BRUT. A series of rooms in a Sanatorium in Switzerland, CIRCA 1945,  showing rooms painted by the inmates in their soft greens and pinks with windows that open on to the sunlight outside…….The painter Dubuffet was fascinated by the soft colours, harmonies and themes shown by the inmates. Dubuffet founded the Compagnie de l’Art Brut, which developed into a movement, showing initially in the basement Galerie of Rene Drouin.Works by de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Clyfford Hill hung alongside   works by Alfonso Ossorio who embraced Art Brut. Credirs Installation designer Robin Brown. Producer Anna Pank.  With a large team of artists,set decorators and graphics artists who have assisted Helly Nahmad London another moment in artistic time with Jean Dubuffet’s vision re-imagined.

The auction will be presented as an ambitious exhibition conceived by acclaimed designer Jacques Grange, on view from the 3 October at Ely House in London, and via a radical new online experience which will deliver rich content, stunning photography and artist videos.

Lapis lazuli evokes the depth of the sea and, with its precious golden veins and white nuances, a romantic summer night sky, or a blue sky crossed by cirrus clouds. It is also the colour characterizing so many images of the Virgin Mary in the Italian and European Middle Ages or Renaissance. The exhibition Lapis lazuli – Blue Magic – open until 11th October 2015 at the Silver Museum of Palazzo Pitti - is devoted to the intense and impenetrable charm of blue lapis lazuli. The idea came thanks to the extraordinary collections kept inside this Florentine museum, featuring vases and carved sculptures in lapis lazuli, with their fantastic shapes inspired by the masterpieces of the Florence Mannerism. This precious collection, started by Grand Duke Cosimo I, was enriched by his son Francesco I thanks to his passion for minerals and esoteric elements. Cosimo’s son actually introduced the first workshops of carvers working with this rare and precious blue stone in Florence. The stone was extracted from the Sar-e-Sang quarry, (on the mountains of what today is Afghanistan), the only known deposit in ancient times, also visited by Marco Polo in the 13th century and soon after associated with wealth next to gold, silver and other precious metals. That is why from 1572 on, carvers Gian Ambrogio and Gian Stefano Caroni from Milan started working inside the Grand Duke’s workshops inside the Casino di San Marco. Next to the masterpieces of the Grand Duke collections, the exhibition will feature extraordinary works coming from important museums such as the Prado Museum in Madrid, the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, the Grunes Gewolbe in Dresden and the Landesmuseum Wurttemberg in Stuttgart. The exhibition is divided into four sections: From Nature to Artifice – Commesso (Semi-Precious Stones Mosaic) and Painted Stones – The Blue Stone in the Princely Splendour – From Ultramarine to Klein’s Blue). A work by French artist Yves Klein – along with a small section devoted to twentieth-century and contemporary jewelry - will complete the exhibition. Klein devoted the majority of his artistic experimentations to absolute blue.
