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...

Popcorn maker, satellite, teapot, UFO, Marvin the Martian....and our favorite guess, mini-BBQ!  Good guesses all.  For those of you who guessed coffee pot or coffee urn,  you are 100% correct.  In 1935, the American industrial designer #RusselWright  (1904-1996) created this unusual looking coffee urn out of spun aluminum and walnut for brewing coffee goo.gl/FxQeU5  It is now in the collection of the +Brooklyn Museum  Spun aluminum reflected Wright's interest to use inexpensive, practical and modern materials for his household objects. He also used it to manufacture ice buckets, vases, flower pots, and lamps.
Wright was passionate about bringing fresh, modern designs to mid-century American households, and pioneered the development of simple, informal objects of daily use, especially kitchen ware and furniture.  He began shaking up conventional design starting in the 1930s, and never looked back.

 "I believe with religious intensity that good design is for everyone."
--Russel Wright
Coffee Urn. Spun aluminum, wood. Spherical form on cylindrical stand. Spherical wood knobs on metal cylinders for handles, final, and pourer. Narrow cylindrical spout at base of sphere. Metal percolator basket with lid in interior.Condition: Good.

#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 Google Cultural Institute brings together millions of artefacts from multiple partners, with the stories that bring them to life, in a virtual museum.

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.

Can you guess what this aluminum and wood object is?  
HINT: Although it looks like something from the space age, it was made in 1935.

P.S. The answer will be posted tomorrow!
