Today is the 180th anniversary of James Abbott McNeill Whistler’s birth!
Here’s ‘The Princess from the Land of Porcelain’ from +Smithsonian's Freer and Sackler Galleries:
It was part of a series of costume pictures undertaken by Whistler in which western models appear in Asian dress, surrounded by Chinese and Japanese objects from his own collections. Here, the noted Victorian beauty Christina Spartali strikes a pose that recalls both the elongated figures depicted on Chinese Kangxi porcelain and the graceful courtesans that appear in ukiyo-e prints. 
See this painting in the context of the museum’s Peacock Room, where the Princesse presides over an array of Asian ceramics, with Museum View: The painting, “like the room in which it hangs, embodies the Freer aesthetic: an imaginative, cosmopolitan representation of East-West harmony. #StreetView

"A month ago, we launched our #StreetArtProject to help preserve street art and help our partners tell a story of street art around the globe. 
Users can get up-close and personal with street art spaces from around the world that are closed to the public, or that have already been demolished—such as the famed Paris 13 tower. Explore all nine floors and 450 square meters of painted ceilings and walls of the now-demolished Tour Paris 13 building with Street View in a few clicks: #streetart"

"Painter Marc Chagall was born on July 6th, 1887: a good day to enjoy his monumental work on the ceiling of Paris's Palais Garnier, available in ultra-high resolution at
Over three days and nights, five technicians worked in rotation to transcribe the minutest detail of the 240m2 pictorial composition. It is the largest work available on the site in #Gigapixel resolution, a technical challenge given the height at which it is located (18 metres), the lighting conditions in the theatre, and the curved, circular nature of the ceiling!

Don’t forget to zoom in and to click on the Details to see different views of the ceiling #artstech "

"‘The Outer Harbour of Le Havre, Morning, Sun, Tide’, 1902, by Danish-French painter Camille Pissarro born 184 years ago Musée d'art moderne André Malraux. This is one of the final artworks executed by Camille Pissarro and it’s representative of the final phase of his work. 

“With these electrical installations, cranes and steamers, Pissarro gives us a decidedly modern view of the harbour of Le Havre. He captures the onlookers in full motion giving the scene the feel of a snapshot. The motifs, bluntly cut by the edges of the painting, also call to mind the photographic images that fascinated so many painters at the time."

"‘Judith and Holofernes’ by Artemisia Gentileschi, one of the great painters of the Baroque era, born 421 years ago, Uffizi Gallery:
This violent portrayal of a woman in the act of severing the main artery of a helpless and naked man is one of her best-known paintings. See it in high resolution:"
This large painting signed by the artist was in Palazzo Pitti in 1638 and was tranferred to the Uffizi in 1774. In 1635 the Artist thanked Galileo Galilei for having helped her obtain payment, most likely for this painting for Cosimo III who was an empassioned collector of caravaggesque paintings. Artemisia Gentilleschi was in Florence from 1613 to 1620 and completed several paintings for the Medici Court.

Today is the 120th birthday of André Kertész, one of the great photographers of the 20th century, known for his lyrical, spontaneous pictures of everyday life and considered one of the seminal figures of photojournalism.
Here is his 'Fork' photographed in 1928 +Nelson- Atkins
"While many of his pictures have the simplicity of amateur snapshots, Kertész made extensive use of such modernist devices as the aerial view and the extreme close-up. This work, one of the most important of his Parisian period, exemplifies the transformative powers of his vision by suggesting an inherent mystery in the mundane. Kertész's Fork is at once realistic and abstract, intimate and monumental." #photography
