Billion-dollar whales fill #1MDB’s wide net | Reuters

Billion-dollar whales fill 1MDB’s wide net | Reuters Malaysia is steadily making good on its 1Malaysia Development Berhad disaster. The Southeast Asian country has so far clawed back $4.3 billion.

Now the current government may even be able to recoup enoug...

An Introduction to Nicolas Bourbaki, One of the Most Influential Mathematicians of All Time … Who Never Actually Lived

In 20th-century mathematics, the renowned name of Nicolas Bourbaki stands alone in its class — the class, that is, of renowned mathematical names that don’t actually belong to real people. Bourbaki refers not to a mathematician, but to mathematicians; a whole secret society of them, in fact, who made their name by collectively composing Elements of Mathematic. Not, mind you, Elements of Mathematics: “Bourbaki’s Elements of Mathematic — a series of textbooks and programmatic writing...

Great Art Explained: van Gogh’s Starry Night

Bear with me, I am on a bit of an art kick lately. As I said earlier this week, I’ve been slowly working my way through James Payne’s Great Art Explained video series. But then — bang! — he came out with a new episode on Vincent van Gogh and his masterpiece, Starry Night. Having seen this painting in person for the first time in a few years just days ago at MoMA, I abandoned the back catalog and dug in to this new one immediately. Van Gogh is one of my favorites — I spent several happy hour...

Vincent Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night”: Why It’s a Great Painting in 15 Minutes

I had always wanted to see Van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” in person and many years ago I got a chance when I visited the Museum of Modern Art in New York. However, two dozen other people, who also wanted that chance, were there too, and my vision of Van Gogh’s masterpiece was one behind a phalanx of cell phones all trying to grab a “been there, done that” pic. Fortunately, the video above from the Great Art Explained YouTube channel takes you closer to the painting that an in-person...

France’s New Privately Funded Arts Complex

Arles is famous for Van Gogh and for its Roman ruins. Now there’s a new show in town: Luma. “The center doesn’t fit neatly into given ideas about museums, art collections or cultural hubs. … Luma doesn’t have a predictable program of exhibitions, artist residencies or performance pieces.” But it does have a Frank Gehry building, and a lot of aspirations. – The New York Times
Tags: Art, France, Frank Gehry, Arles, Van Gogh, Visual, Luma, 06.25.21

"We wanted to evoke the local, from Van Gogh's Starry Night to the soaring rock clusters you find in the region.... The manner in which Van Gogh rendered Les Alpilles influenced the development of the exterior cladding of the building."

Said Frank Gehry, quoted in "Frank Gehry unveils The Tower, a stainless steel-clad arts building for Luma Arles" (Dezeen). Here's Gehry's new building: Here's Van Gogh's rendering of Les Alpilles: Did Gehry evoke Van Gogh to good effect? Yes, beautiful! Yes, decently enough. No, it's kind of a miss for me. No, it's atrocious. free polls ADDED: Gehry's Tower reminds me of the depiction of the Tower of Babel by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (from 1563): ...
