A spectacular find of lost treasures that reverberated across the art world will make the George Clooney and Sony Entertainment film all the more worth the wait for its 2014 release date.
By now, just about everyone has heard of the trove of approximately 1500 artworks confiscated by the Nazis during the Holocaust that was unearthed in the apartment of an elderly Munich man.
The works by artists including Picasso, Chagall and Matisse are estimated to be worth about $1.35 billion, according to a preliminary analysis for authorities undertaken by an expert at Berlin's Free University.
Details of the discovered artwork remain unclear, but art historians said that initial descriptions suggest the cache is one of the most significant collections of prewar European art in the world. Determining the rightful owners of the works decades after they were either sold under duress or seized could take years.
Few people outside the art world know that Ronald Lauder of the Estee Lauder Cosmetics family, is one of the grand champions in this quest. His Commission for Art Recovery founded in 1997, actively seeks justice for victims of Nazi art theft. Through its program initiatives, CAR continues to advance the cause of art restitution throughout the world.
Let's hope Mr. Lauder and CAR will be all over this one! PERFUME: THE STORY OF A MURDERERRE-SHOWN WITH NEWLY CREATED SCENT TRACK(It's like a sound track for your nose.) The 2006 film played at special screenings where audiences were on the scent.
A sophisticated cousin of Smell-O-Vision and Odorama, the
film Perfume: The Story of a Murderer were accompanied by a newly-created "scent track" for screenings in Los angeles on November 6th and 7th.
The event marked a rare opportunity for olfactory stimulation to heighten the filmgoing experience. Created by Parisian fashion and fragrance designer Thierry Mugler, the scents are engineered to enhance the scensory experience of key scenes in the story of a murderer obsessed with smell. A perfumer, his own body produces no odor.
Free and open to the public, the screenings were organized by the Insititute of Art and Olfaction, an L.A.-based non profit that promotes the understanding of fragrance and facilitates its use in art. l.a.Eyeworks hosted the screenings at its Beverly Boulevard store and along with the L.A. perfume boutigue, Scent Bar, hosted private pre-show parties.
International Flavors and Fragrance, which stores the recipes, whipped up new batches for the occasion which were distributed to audiences via scent strip cards
