Weekend Art Links

Some art world stories from around the web:

An apartment in Paris went uninhabited for over 70 years, a time capsule of nineteenth century treasures, including an uncatalogued painting by the Italian portraitist, Giovanni Boldini.

In celebration of 10/10/10, Mental Floss has Ten Facts about The Ten, a group of American painters who seceded from the Society of American Artists in protest of "too much business and too little art".

A controversial lithograph by Enrique Chagoya was attacked by a woman with a crow bar in Colorado's Loveland Museum.

Take an interactive journey through Monet's life and work at this website for an eponymous exhibit at the Galeries nationales, Grand Palais in Paris.

Lenny Campello is digging into a very dramatic saga involving the National Portrait Gallery, a thieving gallery owner, and some very upset artists.
