Ben Enwonwu: The Nigerian painter behind 'Africa's Mona Lisa'

Another work by Enwonwu, of an Ife princess Tutu, affectionately dubbed "Africa's Mona Lisa", was sold in 2018 for £1.2m. It is considered a national masterpiece.

Celebrated Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie told the BBC in 2013: "This particular painting "Tutu," the print, hung on every wall, of every middle-class family in eastern Nigeria when I was growing up."

Vivid portraits shine light on Tahiti's 'third gender'
Namsa Leuba Photo.png
On the Polynesian island of Tahiti, there is said to be something akin to a sixth sense -- one that belongs to neither men nor women. Instead, it is the sole domain of the "mahu," a community recognized as being outside the traditional male-female divide.

"Mahu have this other sense that men or women don't have," said Swiss-Guinean photographer Namsa Leuba, whose images from the island are showing at a new exhibition in London. "It is well known in (French Polynesia) that they have something special."

In Tahiti, mahu are considered a third or "liminal" gender, born biologically male but recognized by peers as distinct, often from early in their lives. Their gender identity has been accepted on the island since time immemorial, and mahu traditionally play key social and spiritual roles, as guardians of cultural rituals and dances, or providers of care for children and elders.

Leuba's new photo series, "Illusions: The Myth of the 'Vahine' through Gender Dysphoria," shows the diversity of gender identities in French Polynesia, where the photographer spends half her year.

There about 12 images at the link. It would be hard for me to choose a favorite. They look better at the site because they are bigger and you can see more detail.
Auto Mechanics Recreate Renaissance Paintings
Photographer Freddy Fabris had always wanted to pay homage to the Renaissance masters with his photos in some way, but he wasn’t sure how until he stumbled upon an auto-mechanic shop in the Midwest. This led to a brilliant series of funny portraits with auto mechanics.

Painting Found Inside Walls of Italian Gallery May Be a Stolen Klimt
“Portrait of a Lady” went missing from the Ricci Oddi Modern Art Gallery in February 1997

Read more: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-ne ... K7YhF6i.99
gardener clearing ivy from an Italian museum’s walls recently uncovered a metal panel. When he pulled it open, he discovered a nook in which someone had stuffed a black bag.

“[A]t first I thought it was trash,” the worker told Italian media, according to Andrea Vogt of the Telegraph, “but then I called my superiors right away.”

Inside the bag was a painting of a rosy-cheeked woman, staring over her shoulder with large, almond-shaped eyes. The work still needs to be examined by experts, but officials at the Ricci Oddi Modern Art Gallery in Piacenza suspect it may be a missing portrait by Austrian symbolist artist Gustav Klimt.

Should the artwork prove to be an original Klimt, the decades-long mystery surrounding the whereabouts of Portrait of a Lady will finally come to a close—and a painting worth some $66 million will be restored to its rightful place on, not in, gallery walls.
