In 1938, Nelson Rockefeller, the 30-year-old scion of one of America’s greatest banking families, commissioned two modern French painters to decorate the fireplaces in his penthouse on Fifth Avenue. The two murals—one by Fernand Léger, another by Henri Matisse—may soon reunite. Earlier this month, Léger’s over 9-foot-tall canvas was a showstopper at Art Basel, the world’s largest modern and contemporary art fair.
A painting by Max Beckmann sold for 36 million pounds ($45.8 million) at Christie’s in London on Tuesday, setting a record for the German Expressionist. Titled “Holle der Vogel” (Birds’ Hell), the canvas is an allegory of Nazi Germany, according to the auction house. Beckmann began the work in the summer of 1937, after he fled the country for Amsterdam.
Billionaire Steven A. Cohen and his wife Alexandra gave $50 million to the Museum of Modern Art in New York for its capital campaign. The unrestricted gift, made through the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Foundation, will support MoMA’s expansion project that will add 50,000 square feet of gallery space -- a 30 percent increase -- when it’s completed in 2019. Cohen, who joined the museum’s board of trustees in 2016, is the latest billionaire to contribute to the $400 million expansion.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
