The Redemption

Directly inspired by the paintings of Gustav Klimt’s Golden Phase, the intention of Tawny Chatmon’s project The Redemption is to “celebrate and reinforce the beauty of Black hair, features, life, and culture”. In the United States and abroad, the hair types and styles that are distinctively akin to Black people and culture continue to be policed and labeled as unkempt, unruly, unattractive, and unprofessional. While we proudly celebrate and adorn these styles with beads, barrettes and oth...

Spanish Flu: A Warning from History

Two years ago historians marked the 100th anniversary of the Spanish Flu, a worldwide pandemic that seemed to be disappearing down the memory hole. Not so fast, said historians, we need to remember the horror. Happy belated anniversary, said 2020, hold my beer. And so here we are. As I write this, the President wheezed through an Address to the Nation which calmed no fears and sent Dow futures tumbling. I scrolled down my news feed to see that Tom Hanks and his wife both have it. Our god...

Guilty Thieves Explain Why They Gave Back Klimt’s ‘Portrait of a Lady’

ROME—When journalist Ermanno Mariani received a phone call last week from a man purporting to be one of the thieves who stole Gustav Klimt’s “Portrait of a Lady” from the Ricci Oddi Modern Art Gallery in the Italian city of Piacenza in 1997, he was understandably skeptical. The journalist had covered the case of the missing painting for years, chasing various leads that took him from the black market of stolen masterpieces to the underworld of devil worship and sorcerers. Twice he had interviewe...

Anne Frank’s Diary: The Graphic Novel Adaptation

The human imagination can be an extraordinary coping device in times of trouble, a tiny window providing mental escape from whatever cell fate has consigned us to. Diarist and aspiring professional writer Anne Frank, who died in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at the age of 15, chafed at her now-universally-known confinement in the Secret Annex. She chafed at her mother’s authority and the seemingly effortless saintliness of her older sister. Documenting her daily physical and emoti...

New Digital Archive Will Feature the Complete Works of Egon Schiele: Start with 419 Paintings, Drawings & Sculptures

If you’ve ever mistaken an Egon Schiele for a Gustav Klimt, you can surely be forgiven—the Austrian modernist don served as a North Star for Schiele, who sought out Klimt, apprenticed himself, and received a great deal of encouragement from his elder. But he would soon strike out on his own, developing a grotesque, exaggerated, yet elegantly sensual style that shocked his contemporaries and made him a leading figure of Austrian Expressionism. Now, a century after his death in 1918 at age 28, a ...

Breeders’ Cup betting should keep two Brits in mind

Pssst. Hey, over here. Looking for a little betting advice for Breeders’ Cup weekend today and Saturday? OK, this is just between the two of us, but … don’t sleep on a couple of Brits – trainer John Gosden and jockey Ryan Moore. OK, I’ll admit that Gosden’s Breeders’ Cup record is nothing special. He’s won only four races from 33 starters (12 percent), but trust me, the man can flat-out train. Still a little skeptical? Try this. He’s won more than 3,000 races worldwide, including more than 600 i...

Having been a meeting place for creative types and thinkers (think Sigmund Freud and Gustav Klimt) for centuries, coffee houses are an institution in Vienna. Both locals and visitors go to Viennese coffee houses for the delicious cakes, the peculiar formality of the waiting staff, and the Viennese practice of table-sharing. Yet, because there’s one pretty much on every corner of Vienna’s inner city, you’ll want to choose wisely. Factors like the interior decor, a special house cake, or the qu...
