painting to be unveiled
LONDON - An outdoor painting which is longer than the Sistine Chapel
ceiling is to be unveiled. One
of the UK's largest outdoor paintings is to be unveiled beneath
a railway bridge in south London. At 48m long and 3m tall (157 x
10ft), the steel painting Poured Lines is longer than five
London buses and will go on show near the Tate Modern. The idea,
according to artist Ian Davenport, was to create a gateway to London's
Bankside attractions. Mr Davenport had to travel to Germany to find
factory furnaces big enough to make the painting's steel panels.
Scream' is back, but 170,000 other art treasures missing
PARIS Together, they would make up a stunning gallery: 167
Renoirs, 166 Rembrandts, 175 Warhols and more than 200 works by
Dali. Experts have a tally of 170,000 pieces of missing art
many stolen from private homes, others taken from museum walls or
pilfered from storerooms. Only
a small fraction are ever found: Interpol puts the figure at around
10%. Yet masterpieces like Edvard Munch's "The Scream"
and "Madonna," recovered last week in Norway, turn up
more often, partly because of intense police work and partly because
they are so tough to sell.

a 6-2 vote, the commission voted to move the statue, currently stored
in a warehouse, to a street-level pedestal near the site of one
of the 1976 movie's iconic scenes.
