Be Bold with Baldessari

If you're starting to think about stocking fillers, then head straight to the Gagosian online shop and stock up on some John Baldessari pencils for $1 each. Taken from his iconic 1971 conceptual art work, the phrase, "I will not make any more boring art" is printed on the side - a perfect reminder for us all.

In the Pink

A must see for those visiting New York this autumn, this exhibition displays an oustanding array of design with one combining factor, the colour pink. Curated by the museum's Director, Dr. Valerie Steele, it is a rare chance to see designs by Yves Saint Laurent, Moschino and Christian Dior all under one very glamorous roof.

Understanding Freud

We absolutely loved this Phaidon collector's edition of Freud's work, with chapters dedicated to each decade of his life. Written by biographer Martin Gayford and long-term assistant David Dawson, this is the most comprehensive collection of his works to date. It's a perfect holiday gift for any art lover, with limited stock available.

It's a puzzle to me...

If your little ones need distracting over this half-term, we think this 3D puzzle might do the trick. With colourful, fun depictions of Yayoi Kusama, Dalí, Picasso and more, we think this is a wonderful activity for a rainy afternoon. And just maybe, while they complete the puzzle, you could take a few moments to enjoy the same artists' work in our Modern Masters series?

For Autumn Nights

The Rijksmuseum have announced that Rembrandt's masterpiece, The Night Watch, will undergo extensive restoration work following a major exhibition in February. There's now a range of gifts to commemorate both the exhibition and the 350th annniversary of Rembrandt's death; we particularly like the idea of these socks keeping us warm as the days get cooler.

Georgina Adams' follow up to her 2014 book, Big Bucks, provides an up-to-date analysis of the international art market today. Fraud, tax evasion and money laundering combined with the glamourous world of art lead to an exciting read full of inside analysis. A perfect complement to Georgina's new series, The Art Market.
