Congratulations to the #YorkArtGallery which reopens tomorrow after a two-year renovation. A big moment will be the public opening of its Centre of Ceramic Art (CoCA) which presents an unrivaled collection of 2,000 objects from the "greats" of handmade, #BritishStudioCeramics . Think #BernardLeach #LucieRie , #HansCoper #RuthDuckworth and #GraysonPerry

For those who don't find themselves in York, England tomorrow you're in luck. Check out the Gallery's excellent online exhibit about the obscure librarian W.A Ismay, who quietly amassed a world-class collection of over 3,600 ceramics from 1955 to 2001, and then generously bequeathed it to the York Art Gallery: https://goo.gl/fH76EI

+Judith Leyster born on this day in 1609 was one of the most remarkable artists of her time. For more than 200 years she remained unknown as an artist. It was only towards the end of the nineteenth century that her work was rediscovered, and this painting Boy Playing a Flute (collection of the +Nationalmuseum Sweden ) was properly attributed in 1893 from +Frans Hals to Judith Leyster.  Can you find where Leyster added her monogram on the painting?

Leyster was remarkable not only for her artistic genius, but also for the level of professional success and recognition she achieved in her own lifetime. She enrolled with the painter’s guild in Haarlem the early 1630s, was the only woman master-painter of her day. She maintained her own studio in #Haarlem  until she married Jan Miense Molenaer, a fellow artist, and later moved to #Amsterdam   She painted very little after her marriage. She died in 1660. Today she is celebrated as one of the masters of Dutch painting.   #painting   #arthistory  +Dutch Art  #painting   #arthistory  +Women Artists of the World 
Despite the monogram, this work was, at the time of its donation to the Nationalmuseum in 1871, attributed both to Frans Hals and to Jan de Bray. Not until 1893 did Hofstede de Groot identity it as a work of Judith Leyster. Boy Playing a Flute is one of the artist’s most important and attractive paintings. It probably originated in the early 1630s, since it still shows traces of the influence of the Utrecht Caravaggists. The composition is fresh ...

A cool dip to beat the summer heat - #Philadelphia , circa 1885. Tomorrow's local forecast: sunny with highs reaching 91°F / 33°C https://goo.gl/Kcbpr8  

Happy Birthday #ThomasEakins , born #onthisday  in 1844.  His masterpiece of American painting is on view in +Amon Carter Museum of American Art Fort Worth  
<i>Swimming</i> displays Thomas Eakins’s interest in scientific analyses of bodies in motion. The arrangement of the swimmers suggested the sequential movement of a single figure through the pictorial space. As head of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Eakins felt the human form was central to modern art and made the study of the nude integral to his teaching. Because the figures in this painting were easily identifiable as the artist an...

Sir Joseph Paxton, #bornonthisday  in 1803 was the pioneering designer of the Crystal Palace https://goo.gl/eh4v5O. Built in #HydePark , London for the 1851 World's Universal Exhibition, the Crystal Palace was one of the most talked about buildings of its day.
 
It's designer was actually not an architect, but a gardener. Joseph Paxton understood how an expansive, light-filled structure - like a greenhouse - would better showcase the exposition displays without requiring artificial lights. The building - nearly 1900 feet in length - would have the extra advantage of accommodating huge crowds. The timing was perfect since an efficient manufacturing process for plate-glass sheets had just been developed.  

In collaboration with the engineer #ThomasCubitt , Paxton built a modular structure of plate-glass sheets to create a transparent skin over the supporting iron skeleton. That the building components could be packed, transported, and then assembled on site, also made the Crystal Palace the world's first pre-fabricated building.  Besides pioneering new materials and technologies, Paxton's Crystal Palace created a sensation. It was unlike anything the public had ever seen during the #Victorian era, and over six million spectators visited the Exposition's five-month run.  

Sadly, it was destroyed by a massive fire in 1936. However, it continued to influence architects from Le Corbusier to I.M. Pei.

The Crystal Palace, an exhibition hall in Hyde Park, London, was the site of the first international exposition in 1851. The exposition was a great success, attracting more than six million visitors during the five months that it was open to the public. The impressive structure, consisting of an intricate network of slender iron rods sustaining walls of glass, was built expressly for the exposition and was not intended to be permanent. The main...

#Cricket  fans across the globe are tuning into the  #Ashes , the famous Test matches between Australia and England held every four years. A century before live tv coverage early English cricket matches were captured in paintings like this one of the First Grand Match played on the green at +Hampton Court House near London.  From this anonymous painting (collection of the Yale Center for British Art) we can already see the late 19th-century English taste for bright white cricketers' uniforms.  Follow this link to see the scene in full detail. https://goo.gl/P4DtSd     #YaleBritishArt    #painting    #cricket    #ashes2015   #england

The English explorer, courtier, and writer Sir Walter Raleigh (1554–1618) is credited with introducing Virginia tobacco to England on this day in 1586. While exploring the territory, Raleigh apparently took a great liking to the stuff and brought some back to England.  After falling out of favor at Elizabeth I's court he apparently kept a pouch with him during his imprisonment. The pouch http://goo.gl/Sfz5SZ, now in the collection of +The Wallace Collection in London, is inscribed with the Latin phrase "It was my companion during that unhappy time" Comes meus fuit in illo miserrimo tempore. Historically, Raleigh has been so closely associated with tobacco that his face is thought to be the figure carved in this17th-century Dutch pipe bowl.   #tobacco   #SirWalterRaleigh   #Virginia   #pipe   #Raleigh  
Pipe bowl with an effigy probably representing Sir Walter Raleigh. The shape and finish of the highly decorated pipe stem suggest that a detachable stem could be fitted to the pipe. Marking under the flat heel of the pipe. Probably made in Holland (1625-1650). The pipe bowl is bulbous and there is a very wide angle between the stem and the bowl’s opening.
