This week: after nearly 80 years in business, Marlborough Gallery, one of the most historic commercial galleries in London, New York and beyond, has announced that it is closing. Host Ben Luke talks to Anny Shaw, a contributing editor at The Art Newspaper, about what happened and what, if anything, it tells us about the market.

Marlborough Gallery quickly made its name representing important post-war artists including Francis Bacon, Frank Auerbach and Barbara Hepworth

The New Mexico-based sculptor Rose B. Simpson revealed newly commissioned public art works in Madison Square Park and Inwood Hill Park in New York on Wednesday, called Seed. The Art Newspaper’s editor, Americas, Ben Sutton went to meet her.

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio’s The Martyrdom of Saint Ursula (1610)

And this episode’s Work of the Week is the final painting ever made by Caravaggio: The Martyrdom of Saint Ursula (1610). The painting is travelling to London for an exhibition opening at the National Gallery next week, called The Last Caravaggio. Francesca Whitlum-Cooper, the gallery’s acting curator of later Italian, Spanish and 17th-century French Paintings and the curator of the exhibition, tells us more.
