Auction Houses in 2008

January 4th, 2009

2008 certainly wasn’t one of the best years for art auctions. The above painting Suprematist Composition by Kasimir Malevich turned out to be the most expensive sale of the year at 60 000 000 $.

Artinthepicture.com new design

November 30th, 2008

For those of you who regularly visit our main website, this probably isn’t news anymore since our new layout has been online almost for a month now. But the complete redesign of Artinthepicture.com ofcourse merits a post on this blog as well.

The redesign of Artinthepicture.com is a work of young, Belgian graphic designer Joke Vermeiren, who I (not incidentally) talked about in a previous blog post. While it has become a dark theme with some interesting colorful eyecatchers, it was very important to give the art itself the star role. And I believe our designer certainly has succeeded very well at this balancing exercise.

Apart from the new design, we have also changed/added/deleted some things from the old website. The homepage of our website has been upgraded to become a real gateway to everything on our website. A special section on interesting artbooks has been added. On any artist page you know immediately see the most important thing this artist has to offer: the paintings. And we’ve added a search function at the top of every page for easier browsing.

For now, I welcome you all officially to the new and improved Artinthepicture.com !
