Costruita in stile romano-gotico italiano, è una delle più significative chiese realizzate in questo stile in Italia. La prima chiesa risale al sec. IX, mentre nel 1259 Nicola Pisano, fra gli artisti più innovativi del XIII secolo, realizza il celebre pulpito, oggi collocato nel transetto sinistro del Duomo. Il figlio Giovanni sarà la figura chiave nella costruzione della parte inferiore della facciata, la parte superiore è invece opera invece di Camaino di Crescentino. Il campanile è in stile romanico, in fasce di marmo bianco e verde e dotato di sei ordini di finestre, e fu completato nel 1313 raggiungendo un'altezza di 77 metri.

Mid essay grind. Deadline looming. I think having studied almost every record at the library relating to my case study embedded in me a desire to write about EVERYTHING I absorbed when I really don't need to 😅. I mean, correspondence over the heating system isn't particularly relevant to the purchase of land for additional burial space. It's all just far too interesting! Anyway, this photo here isn't actually of the church I'm writing about. These are the pews in the nave of the quiet, village church of All Saints in Shiptonthorpe. I wanted to post it because I've had it stored in my saved photos on my phone for about a month. I kept it because I think it radiates calm and harmony. Once the essay is in I will begin planning another York Church Crawl. For those of you who missed out on February's weekend excursion I will be delivering some news on the second one this time next week!

Woman Combing Her Hair by Louis Anquetin (1889). Cloisonnism, a post-Impressionist art movement promiently active during the late 19th century – from 1888 to 1894. The French term “cloisonné” is where the name originates. This refers to the enameling technique which produces an effect similar to that of the art with “outlined areas of uniform colour.” Influences included that of Japanese prints, gothic architecture and the aim to move a step ahead of the Impressionist movement; even further from the naturalist focus. Cloisonnism is characterized in painting with a very two-dimensional look, as flat shapes filled with pure colour are outlined by dark contours.
Artists which were involved with the development of Cloisonnism included that of Louis Anquetin (1861-1932), Émile Bernard (1868-1941), Paul Gauguin (1848-1903), and was also adopted by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). #art#arthistory
Plum Park in Kameido, 1857, by Hiroshige (1797-1858), and Flowering Plum Tree, 1887, by Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890). Van Gogh was heavily influenced by Japanese artists, particularly ukiyo-e woodblock prints, even using the term “Japonaiserie.” #art#arthistory#japaneseart#vangogh#vincentvangogh
Every day (or so), we post artwork by favorite illustrators—with a bit of trivia thrown in.
If you’ve ever written “I <3 [insert word]”, then you’ve stolen this artist’s work. Kind of.
Milton Glaser was born on June 26, 1929, in the South Bronx to Hungarian immigrants. While his mother was supportive of his art, Glaser’s father needed convincing—saying, “Show me. We’re not going to waste anybody’s time by your drawing pictures.” In 1954, Glaser—now a Cooper Union alumnus—founded The Pushpin Studio with Reynold Ruffins, Seymour Chwast, and Edward Sorel. Pushpin dominated advertising and print media—launching its founders into stardom.
Glaser and his wife, Shirley, created “If Apples Had Teeth”—a children’s book published by Knopf in 1960. It started as a game they played while traveling together.
Glaser‘s prodigious (and varied) oeuvre stems from this “art is work” philosophy. The notion that art comes from inspiration and hardship is “bullshit”. Glaser’s advice to artists is simple: Spend time doing the work. “Varied” is the operative word for Glaser. He created EVERYTHING. Are you wearing a “I <3 NY” t-shirt? Glaser. Are you drinking a Brooklyn Brewery beer? Glaser. Are you reading New York Magazine? Glaser. We could do this forever.
By the way, in the late ‘70’s, Glaser gave NYC the “I <3 NY” (and its rights) for free. Ridiculously, NYC tried to sue Glaser for modifying the logo after 9/11. They later dropped the lawsuit.
On November 22, 2001, Glaser gave a @aigadesign talk called, “Ten Things I Have Learned”. The text is absolutely essential reading for anyone in any creative endeavor. The link is below.
Violenza e riscatto: “La fiorista” di Leonardo #Dooderman
"Il #cortometraggio di Dooderman – a più riprese accompagnato da alcuni brusii contrariati in sala – è uno di quegli eventi per cui questa rivista è nata: un esperimento tutto italiano che è pura #avanguardia : scomodo, essenziale e diretto.
Girato a #Pescara , solo tramite un #cellulare con videocamera (“economico“, stando a una dichiarazione dello stesso cineasta), il #film narra la storia di una donna senza nome, immersa in una vita degradata e “tenuta insieme” – lo si evince dai continui richiami alla fede nuziale – da un trascorso matrimonio fallito e da una gravidanza indesiderata."

1990 - L’incontro tra Rudolf Nureyev e Roberto Bolle "Durante la sua ultima apparizione al Teatro alla Scala, Nureyev nota Roberto Bolle in sala prove e gli chiede di mostrargli alcuni esercizi alla sbarra. Dopo alcuni giorni comunica al Teatro di volerlo per il ruolo di Tadzio in Morte a Venezia, spettacolo che avrebbe portato all’Arena di Verona. La Scala rifiuta al quindicenne Bolle il permesso di accettare l’offerta del grande danzatore russo proprio a causa dell’età acerba, ma questo incontro segna il destino di Roberto per sempre". #danza#robertobolle#nureyev#teatroallascala

Her hair falls softly onto his head. His posture is somewhat quirky and unflattering. Hers too, her belly sticking out, almost touching her breasts. But this drawing is true, and I think that many of us can relate to the posture and this moment of intimacy. Because to feel intimate with a partner doesn't need to be sexual, it can also be sharing moments like this. To stop for a second and breathe together, acknowledging that this moment is ours. ———————————————————————
