Harper’s Bazaar’s launching first edition of Art Supplement-Reconnecting with its artistic past?(featuring iconing covers)

Bazaar-Art

Harper’s Bazaar magazine has been much connected with the art world in the past given the work of editorial pioneers such as Alexander  Brodovitch and Diane Vreeland and graced with artwork from artists such as Man Ray and Salvatore Dali.Now,the magazine is making an effort to reconnecting with its arty past by launching an ”art supplement”.We will stay tuned and expect an amalgama of fashion and modern art in the elaborate way of the past.As its was announced:

The November issue of Harper’s Bazaar sees our first ever art supplement – Bazaar Art – celebrating the art world past and present, from this year’s Venice Biennale to eighth-century Chinese masterpieces.

Fashion and art are natural bedfellows – both rely on beauty and emotion – and we look into the relationship in detail, from Japanese artist Takashi Murakami’s new status as fashion darling, to sculptor Les Lalanne’s inspirational work influencing designers from Karl Lagerfeld to Tom Ford.   And we go back in time, too, unravelling the enduring appeal of Coco Chanel, whose apartment was photographed exclusively for us by Sam Taylor-Johnson, and investigating the dark secrets of  Nazi-looted artworks after World War II.

If that wasn’t enough, there are six covers to collect, including three from Martin Creed, Tracey Emin and Yayoi Kusama commissioned especially for Harper’s Bazaar, and a further three limited edition artworks by Gary Hume, Jeff Koons and Sam Taylor-Johnson. We can’t choose, either.

Plus, we’ll have our very own dedicated arts channel online too from Thursday 3rd October, where you’ll be able to find the latest interviews, features and previews. Stay tuned.
