Carl Spitzweg
February 5, 1808, Unterpfaffenhofen – September 23, 1885

Carl Spitzweg was a German painter who is recognized as the most representative of the Biedermeier (early Victorian) artists in Germany.
Trained in pharmacy at the University of Vienna, Spitzweg was a pharmacist and newspaper illustrator before becoming a painter in 1833. Though widely travelled in Europe, he was provincial in his choice of subjects; tenderly, humorously, but with firm control of light, shadow, composition, and detail, he portrayed small town misfits, street musicians, postmen, night watchmen, and lovers bidding farewell. 
His paintings inspired the musical comedy Das kleine Hofkonzert by Edmund Nick.

Clark Gable
February 1, 1901, Cadiz, Ohio – November 16, 1960, West Hollywood

William Clark Gable was an American film actor who epitomized the American ideal of masculinity and virility for three decades. An enormously popular star during his lifetime, Gable was dubbed the “King of Hollywood.” 
He began his career as a stage actor and appeared as an extra in silent films between 1924 and 1926. In 1930 Gable’s performance in a Los Angeles stage production of The Last Mile brought him to the attention of Hollywood producers. The actor garnered public attention with his aggressive, masculine performances in such films as A Free Soul (1931) and Night Nurse (1931); this forceful persona helped make him one of Hollywood’s top stars within a year.
The Frank Capra comedy It Happened One Night (1934) swept the Academy Awards in all five major categories: best picture, actress, director, screenplay, and best actor for Gable. He was also nominated for leading roles in Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) and Gone with the Wind (1939).

Jackson Pollock
January 28, 1912, Cody, Wyoming – August 11, 1956

Paul Jackson Pollock was an American painter who was a leading exponent of Abstract Expressionism, an art movement characterized by the free-associative gestures in paint sometimes referred to as action painting.
During his lifetime he received widespread publicity and serious recognition for the radical poured, or drip, technique he used to create his major works. Among his contemporaries, he was respected for his deeply personal and totally uncompromising commitment to the art of painting. His work and example had enormous influence on them and on many subsequent art movements in the United States. He is also one of the first American painters to be recognized during his lifetime and after as a peer of 20th-century European masters of modern art.
As a man, Pollock was described by his contemporaries as gentle and contemplative when sober, violent when drunk. These extremes found equilibrium in his art. He was highly intelligent, widely read, and, when he chose, incisively articulate. He believed that art derived from the unconscious, saw himself as the essential subject of his painting, and judged his work and that of others on its inherent authenticity of personal expression.

Thanks. A possible influence on Pollock was the work of the Ukrainian American artist Janet Sobel (1894–1968) (born Jennie Lechovsky) (from this article)

Felix Mendelssohn
February 3, 1809, Hamburg – November 4, 1847, Leipzig

Jakob Ludwig Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy was a German composer, pianist, musical conductor, and teacher, one of the most-celebrated figures of the early Romantic period. In his music Mendelssohn largely observed Classical models and practices while initiating key aspects of Romanticism—the artistic movement that exalted feeling and the imagination above rigid forms and traditions. Among his most famous works are Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1826), Italian Symphony (1833), a violin concerto (1844), two piano concerti (1831, 1837), the oratorio Elijah (1846), and several pieces of chamber music.
Mendelssohn was an extremely precocious musical composer. He wrote numerous compositions during his boyhood, among them 5 operas, 11 symphonies for string orchestra, concerti, sonatas, and fugues and made his first public appearance in 1818, at age nine, in Berlin.

Franz Schubert
January 31, 1797, Himmelpfortgrund – November 19, 1828, Vienna

Franz Peter Schubert was an Austrian composer who bridged the worlds of Classical and Romantic music, noted for the melody and harmony in his lieders and chamber music. Among other works are Symphony in C Major (The Great; 1828), Symphony in B Minor (Unfinished; 1822), masses, and piano works.
The numerous compositions he wrote between 1813 and 1815 are remarkable for their variety and intrinsic worth. They are the products of young genius, still short of maturity but displaying style, originality, and imagination. Besides five string quartets, there were three full-scale masses and three symphonies. His first full-length opera, Des Teufels Lustschloss (The Devil’s Palace of Desire), was finished while he was at the training college. But at this period song composition was his chief, all-absorbing interest. On October 19, 1814, he first set to music a poem by Goethe, Gretchen am Spinnrade (Gretchen at the Spinning Wheel), from Faust; it was his 30th song and in this masterpiece he created at one stroke the German lied (art song).
In a short lifespan of less than 32 years, Schubert was a prolific composer, writing some 600 Lieder, nine symphonies, including the famous Unfinished Symphony, liturgical music, operas, some incidental music and a large body of chamber and solo piano music.

Arthur Rubinstein
January 28, 1887, Łódź – December 20, 1982

Arthur Rubinstein was a Polish-American classical pianist who received international acclaim for his performances of the music written by a variety of composers; many regard him as the greatest Chopin interpreter of his time. He is widely considered one of the greatest pianists of the twentieth century. He played in public for eight decades.
At the age of two, Rubinstein demonstrated perfect pitch and a fascination with the piano, watching his elder sister's piano lessons. By the age of four, he was recognized as a child prodigy. On December 14, 1894, seven-year-old Arthur Rubinstein had his debut with pieces by Mozart, Schubert and Mendelssohn...
Rubinstein made more than 200 recordings. He wrote a two-volume autobiography, My Young Years (1973) and My Many Years (1980).
He was awarded the United States Medal of Freedom in 1976.

Introduction
I love Google+! A lot!
 
Love art - music, dance, painting, sculpture, photography... As a great fan! I post about art with hashtags #todaysmemory or #catartday. I have also a Google+ page, +Today's Memory where I'd be glad to add yours memories if I find them, or if you tag them...

Some people consider me a photographer... thanks a lot, friends, I know kindness is your job in G+, but I have a huge work to learn about photography! I post my photos with #bucharestbycar, #buchareststreets or #dailybeautifulromania (here not only my pictures).

And, of course, I love my beautiful country and my city. That why I'm one of curators of +România frumoasă.

Note: 
I'm honored to be in your circles, thank you very much for adding me! But I won't circle you back if you're not posting. People with empty profiles are just not interesting.
