Pavement Picassos: the locked-down artists showing work in their windows

Galleries are closed due to Covid – so a group of artists have taken to displaying their work from their houses for passersby. Our writer takes to the streetsIt is not a good time for art lovers. The second lockdown has closed galleries once more – I’m imagining portraits waiting moodily in the National Gallery in London to be admired again; Van Gogh’s sunflowers wilting further – and so it is not a good time for artists.Artists Walk is an initiative that aims to improve that state of affairs.

What Is, What Could Be, and The Art of Yearning For What Never Was

Cincinnati, Ohio Dear Marianne,  I enjoyed you letter dated October 17th, but I’m left again wondering how the hell did another whole month go by? You might not know this about me, but I’m the kind of guy who’s always looking for a silver lining. For instance, I had high hopes for my Stewartia, but when it died I told myself, “Well, now at least there’s room for a Disanthus.” Per usual, replacing an impossible plant with one that’s even worse. Blinders. I wear them as well as anybody. When the p...

Do We Forget Our Values With ‘Different’ People?

By any standards, I’m considered successful. A NYTimes bestselling author of 9 books, an inventor and thought leader, I’ve trained a very large number of people globally in a change facilitation model I invented for sales (Buying Facilitation®), started up a successful tech company in the 1980s and a non-profit that helped thousands of people walk again, and had my picture on the cover of magazines. I wrote a landmark book on hearing others without bias, and developed a revolutionary training m...

cité de l'architecture et du patrimoine: le Tour de France de l'Architecture

On March 2020, France enter into lockdown to slow covid-19. Moving around is forbidden. Shops, restaurants close their doors, as do the museum... We can't go to see Mona Lisa at the Louvre or a Van Gogh at the Orsay museum, nor the scale model to Mont Saint-Michel at the "cité de l'architecture". But Mont Saint-Michel itself quite different to the Mona Lisa. Isn't in a museum. It's in Normandy in France! So we invited the French to go and seat for themselves during the lockdow...

1,000+ Artworks by Vincent Van Gogh Digitized & Put Online by Dutch Museums: Enter Van Gogh Worldwide

It gets dark before dinner now in my part of the world, a recipe for seasonal depression. Vincent van Gogh wrote about such low feelings with deep insight. “One feels as if one were lying bound hand and foot at the bottom of a deep dark well, utterly helpless,” he wrote of the condition. Yet, when he looked up at the night sky he saw not darkness but blazing light: a full moon shines yellow from White House at Night like the sun, and peeks like a gold coin from behind blue mountains in Landscap...

"She likes jokes. She likes the one David Hockney told her once. It goes: 'The trouble with Van Gogh is if you tell him something it goes in one ear and stays there.'"

"She laughs again.... Maggi, I exclaim, you are smoking again! Didn't you give up five years ago? She says she did but last year, on her birthday, her large bronze sculpture of a rising wave was being erected, and it was fraught, and 'I thought: fuck it. It's my birthday. I'll smoke.'... She smokes with sensational gusto... I can't stand namby-pamby, take-it-or-leave-it smokers. I call them 'crap smokers' and Maggi is not a crap smoker.... 'I think I was once put forward to paint the Queen Mothe...

Van Gogh likely suffered "delirium" from alcohol withdrawal

Dutch master artist Vincent van Gogh's psychological struggles are well documented, from cutting off his own ear to his eventual suicide in 1890. Some historians and psychiatrists have suggested that van Gogh may have been schizophrenic or even exhibited symptoms of gas poisoning from carbon monoxide emitted by the lamps in the room where he painted. — Read the rest

Suzanne Perlman, Expressionist Inspired By Goya And Van Gogh, 97

Perlman was extraordinary, truly. The painter once said, “‘In my work I need to identify myself with the essence of things.’ Such fierce focus as a visionary expressionist painter nourished her in a life of unforeseen and radical changes of circumstance. She was essentially self-taught, and it was following her arrival in the Dutch West Indies as a young Jewish refugee from Europe in 1940 that her art emerged with a consummate self-assurance.” – The Guardian (UK)

My Excellent Provence Adventure Planned By Julie Mautner- Part One

She creates custom-designed trips and experiences for the Provence area that can include villa rentals, tours, activities, hotel recommendations and bookings, transfers, and restaurant reservations.   We had connected a number of years ago online, but we had never met so it was fortuitous that we finally met.

The Curious Death of Vincent van Gogh

The story of Vincent van Gogh’s suicide, like the removal of his ear, has been integral to his mythos for a long time, immortalized by Kirk Douglas in the final scene of Vincente Minnelli’s film Lust for Life and in the 1934 biographical novel of the same name by Irving Stone. We’ve all accepted this as brute historical fact, but, apparently, “it’s all bunk,” Gregory White Smith and Steven Naifeh wrote in a 2014 Vanity Fair article based on a decade of research for a new biography (Van G...

Harlequin’s tricky name

I am picking up where I left off last week. In the post for August 26, 2020, I discussed some words that surround Harlequin on a dictionary page. He ended up among harlots, harangues, and the harrowing of hell. I also touched on the possible origin of some European words for “war,” and in a rather unexpected form war will return to us later. How could Arlecchino, this buffoon, a combination of naivete and shrewdness, stupidity and common sense, Columbine’s lover, a servant always in trouble for ...

Why Was There Just A Twitter War Over Van Gogh And Realism?

Way back on August 9, “Margarita” tweeted side-by-side images of van Gogh’s Café Terrace at Night and a rendition of the same scene in Arles by contemporary painter Haixia Liu (not to be confused with Thomas Kinkade); she appended the message “Should expose how overrated Van Gogh is.” It took until this past weekend, but the Twitterverse did notice, and it … reacted. – ARTnews
