For those interested in Impressionism (or art in general) a great mini-series by the BBC. It gives a beautiful glimpse into the lives of some of the pioneers of Impressionism - Manet, Monet, Renoir, Bazille, Degas and Cezzane

Caravaggio, one of my fav artists. He had a major role in making art of that era darker and more realistic. This album doesn't contain my favorite Caravaggio painting. David with the head of Goliath, a self portrait (ps- he is the head) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_with_the_Head_of_Goliath

Amazing!
 
Check out this trailer of ‘Loving Vincent’ - a new animation by Breakthru Films about the life and death of Vincent van Gogh told through revealing interviews with the characters from Van Gogh's own paintings.

What do you think of it?

The community might find it interesting to follow Eric Weinstein's story. The next Albert Einstein or not? His claims are not out yet, nor whetted by the physics community. Keep an eye out for him though.

A not so jubiliant take: http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn23595-weinsteins-theory-of-everything-is-probably-nothing.html
A physicist has formulated a mathematical theory that purports to explain why the universe works the way it does – and it feels like 'the answer'

If it is a prank, it surely is a long running one. Seems to be that the physics community is calling a bluff on his theory though. Just more math to add to the standard model. Will post when I read up on more.

Cezzane you crazy genius! This is slightly old news, but its never too late to appreciate it. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2096051/Most-expensive-art-piece-sold-Qatar-buys-C-zannes-The-Card-Players-160m.html 
The Card Players, one in a series of five works depicting French peasants playing cards, was bought by the Gulf kingdom of Qatar.

Cubist vibrant art by Georgy Kurasov

Sometimes you don't find anything you like and sometimes you find several artists with work you would love to hang on your walls! Tonight I've found several amazing artists I'll post in the cumming days. Here is Georgy Kurasov

About the artist:
Georgy Kurasov was born in 1958 in the USSR, in what was then Leningrad. He still lives and works in the same place, but now the country is Russia and the city is called St Petersburg. Without any effort on his part whatsoever, Georgy seems to have emigrated from one surreal country to another.

At thirteen years old his mother put him in the art school attached to the Academy of Arts. At the interview it was politely explained that there was nothing for Georgy in the painting department since he had a total lack of feeling for colour. So they suggested Georgy Kurasov join the sculpture class.
In 1977 Georgy Kurasov entered the sculpture department of the Academy of Arts. After graduation he had to go in to the army. In 1984 Georgy Kurasov was at last demobbed. He was free.

Over the next few years he took part in all kinds of exhibitions and competitions in order to score the Brownie points necessary to gain membership of the Union of Artists, since that was more or less the only way of being allocated a separate studio.

It was not the easiest of times. In order to take part in exhibitions you had to have something to display. And in order to create that something to display, you had to have a place in which to create it. Georgy had nowhere.

At last, however, he managed to join the happy ranks of members of the Union of Artists, was allocated his tiny studio, and thought he was at the very peak of happiness. All around him the country was in turmoil, at the very heights of Gorbachev’s ‘perestroika’, people passionately quenching their thirst for information whilst battling with a hunger of somewhat more concrete physical nature caused by food shortages.

Things were now rather difficult for artists, particularly as far as sculpture was concerned. Sculpture, as is well known, is an art form for either rich or totalitarian states. The totalitarian state had ceased to exist but it had not become rich.

Georgy Kurasov started to paint, but it soon became clear that selling his pictures for any acceptable price was going to be impossible, and so he had to feed his family by producing small pastels which Georgy sold through small galleries dealing mainly in souvenirs for foreign tourists.

In 1991 the Soviet Union collapsed. By that time Kurasov had put together a large body of paintings, but had absolutely no idea what he was going to do with them. The future looked bleak.

Then in 1993 his works were first exhibited in the USA. Since then, Georgy Kurasov have exhibited and sold his paintings exclusively in North America.

It is many years since he dropped out of the world of sculpture in Russia, and he never formed part of the world of painting there. Kurasov knows there are plenty of people who, noting the absence of his works at Russian exhibitions, think he has emigrated.

Americans see Georgy Kurasov as a Russian artist, Russians as an American artist. Painters think he is a sculptor. Sculptors are sure he is a painter.

And when Georgy Kurasov thinks of it, he rather like this borderline existence. Perhaps it what makes it possible to be himself, to be unlike anyone else.

Really good food!

Horrible food. Surprising that a place can get even simple desserts so wrong. Just the location and interiors are good.

It seems no place lasts good over 6 months! Me and my friends were regulars for that long. Now looking for a new hangout spot.
