It must have been wonderful to have been Sterling and Francine Clark, who lived in Paris from 1910. The Clarks were heirs to a sewing machine fortune from Sterling Clark's grandfather, who was Isaac Singer's business partner. They loved the work of Renoir and other Impressionist painters and collected with abandon.  In 1955, they founded the Sterling and Francine Clark Institute in Williamstown, Mass., as a permanent home for their collection, but from Saturday until Sept.

Nearly 50 years after they proposed identical theories on how subatomic particles acquire mass, two European physicists were awarded the 2013 Nobel Prize in physics Tuesday for their conceptual research into the enigmatic Higgs particle. Francois Englert, 80, of Belgium, and Peter W. Higgs, 84, of Britain, were awarded the prize about 15 months after scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, confirmed the particle's existence amid great fanfare. "The awarded theory is a central part of the Standard Model of particle physics that describes how the world is constructed," read a statement from the Royal Academy of Sciences in Stockholm, announcing the prize.

I've just returned from a two-week visit to London and Paris. If you're heading over and art is important to you, avoid the giant museums and think small. In London, seek out the Courtauld Gallery in Somerset House, the Royal Academy; the Wallace Collection; and the Clore Gallery of the Tate Britain, housing its Turners. In Paris, the Musée Marmottan Monet, loaded with some of Monet's best; the Musée Delacroix (early works); and the Musée de l'Orangerie (surround yourself with Monet's waterlilies)

A watercolor by Prince Charles was chosen today for the summer show at the prestigious Royal Academy. The work was entered anonymously in the selection process that rejected about 90% of the entries. The painting measures 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches and is signed "C." The catalogue for the show identifies the artist as Arthur G. Carrick--Arthur and George are among the prince's given names, and Earl of Carrick is among his royal titles.

A dazzling exhibition of a thousand years of Byzantium's art is in the final stages of assembly in London after months of labyrinthine complications -- in fact, the very definition of the word "byzantine." This effort to bring Byzantium to Britain culminates in the opening Saturday of a major exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts. Institutions in Russia, Ukraine, Greece and Egypt did not easily give up their treasures for loans. "It's been quite a process in order to get some of these objects here, and multi visits and multi layers of red tape have had to be passed to get these objects," said Adrian Locke, the Royal Academy's acting director of exhibitions.

The biography of the greatest European rider of the 20th Century had been written. The highlight video of a 37-year career had been on sale for five years. The game was over for Lester Piggott. Even the man who won a record nine Epsom Derbies could not hold off the relentless entry of Father Time and the tax man. And then two weeks ago, all of that changed.

He may have traded Southern California warmth for the gun-metal skies and windy damp of his native England, but this is surely David Hockney's moment in the sun. His compatriots are busy hailing him as undoubtedly Britain's greatest living painter now that his friend Lucian Freud has died. Queen Elizabeth II just appointed him to the Order of Merit, an honor restricted to 24 Britons at any one time for their contributions to the arts and sciences. In the pages of the Guardian — the left-wing paper to which Hockney regularly dashes off harrumphing letters to the editor — a fashion writer felt moved to confess that the artist, a "brilliantly intentional nerd," was "my all-time style hero.

Philip Langridge, the British tenor who won praise for his vocal versatility and subtle characterization, has died. He was 70. Langridge died Friday after a short battle with cancer, the Royal Opera House announced. His death "leaves a large hole in the world's music," composer Harrison Birtwistle said. Langridge was born Dec. 16, 1939, in Hawkhurst, southern England, and studied at the Royal Academy of Music. He began his career as an orchestral violinist, but turned to singing, making his professional operatic debut in Richard Strauss' "Capriccio" at the Glyndebourne Festival in 1964.

Granting his first interview in 45 years, the eminent and reclusive English painter Leon Kossoff moans, "It's all terribly boring. I don't know why you want to talk about all this." Well, there are two pressing reasons: Kossoff's simultaneous shows at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the J. Paul Getty Museum. Both are based on a personal project five years in the making: Kossoff's interpretations of the paintings of 17th century French artist Nicolas Poussin.

John Stobart drove up from San Diego, where he is wintering, to make final arrangements for his part in the exhibition of paintings, prints and bronzes at the Balboa Bay Club today of prominent marine artists. "I guess I'll just stand beside my work and talk to people. No speeches, or anything like that," he told me in his north-of-England accent over a pot of strong tea. Milk with sugar, thank you.
