Modigliani the High Point to Otherwise Tepid Auction Season in New York 2015
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Amadeo Modigliani, Nu couché, 1917-18, oil on canvas, 23.62 x 36.25 in. Courtesy of Christie's. There's been some whispering lately about an inevitable leveling off of the art market, and it seems that day has come. Besides the stratospheric result of Amadeo Modigliani's $170 million Nu Couché sold at Christie's on November 9, this season's auction returns have been relatively modest overall--or at least overestimated. Despite the lack of fireworks, the market is still demonstrating strength: Sotheby's looks poised to bring in a total of $1.1 billion this season, and Christie's about the same. So far, the two major auction houses are matching each other stride for stride, a far cry from the trouncing of last season. Frank Stella, Delaware Crossing, 1961, alkyd on canvas, 77 x 77 in.

The family of South Africa's first black president, who died two months ago aged 95, gathered behind closed doors at his foundation in Johannesburg to hear the reading of the will, which carves up an estate estimated at 46m rand (£2.52m). The most conspicuous omission was Madikizela-Mandela, his wife of 38 years during the struggle against racial apartheid. They divorced in 1996 but became close again towards the end of his life and, along with his third wife, Graça Machel, she was at his bedside when he died. It also emerged that the former president's daughters, each given $300,000 (£184,000) by him during his lifetime, get no further money now. But Machel's chil ...

South African opposition party's plan to field black candidate crumbles
Guardian (UK) - about 3 years
Democratic Alliance accuses Mamphela Ramphele of reneging on deal to join party before this year's presidential elections A historic pact enabling South Africa's main opposition party to field a black presidential candidate for the first time has collapsed in less than a week. The Democratic Alliance (DA) accused anti-apartheid stalwart Mamphela Ramphele of reneging on a deal to join the party before this year's elections and said "she cannot be trusted".

Central African Republic president's resignation brings joy and fear
Guardian (UK) - about 3 years
Residents take to streets to celebrate Michel Djotodia's departure, but concerns grow of revenge attacks on Muslims The interim president of the Central African Republic (CAR) has resigned after a disastrous nine-month rule, prompting celebrations on the streets but fresh anxiety about a power vacuum and revenge attacks against Muslims. The fate of Michel Djotodia, a rebel who became the country's first Muslim leader only to preside over its descent towards civil war, was sealed at a regional summit in neighbouring Chad. The prime minister, Nicolas Tiangaye, with whom he had a fractious relationship, also stepped down. Djotodia, 65, has appeared impotent amid a cycle of attacks and counter-attacks by Christian and Muslim militias that has left thousands of people dead and forced a million from their homes. He became deeply unpopular, particularly among the nation's Christian majority. But Djotodia's departure leaves the state in the hands of a weak transitional government and faci ...
