'A Woman Drinking with Two Men' was painted by Pieter de Hooch in about 1658, towards the end of de Hooch's stay in Delft. Many changes in the composition show the care with which the design was developed. The figures appear to have been added after the architectural features of the interior had been painted. Its chequered floor is visible through the skirt of the servant to the right, and technical photographs show that this figure was originally in conversation with a man standing on her left, a figure later concealed by the painter: http://bit.ly/2l7RBNw

Sir Joshua Reynolds died #OnThisDay in 1792. Reynolds was the leading English portraitist of the 18th century. Through study of ancient and Italian Renaissance art, and of the work of Rembrandt, Rubens and Van Dyck, he brought great variety to British portraiture. As with many of Reynolds's group portraits the design is based on a composition taken from an historical source. In this case 'Lady Cockburn and her Three Eldest Sons' is based on a 17th-century work, 'Charity' by Van Dyck: http://bit.ly/2l7PdX4

This self portrait of Jan Lievens in a relaxed, self-assured pose, seated against a landscape background, shows the influence of Anthony van Dyck's elegant portrait style. Lievens’s voluminous padded silk gown – probably imported from Japan – and long, loose hair were the height of fashion in the early to mid-1650s. See this painting in Room 29: http://bit.ly/2l7w8oa

UK: Dolphin 'massacre' claim as 100 wash up in eight weeks

A MARINE wildlife expert from Brixham has described the killing of dolphins in South West waters as a 'massacre' – with over 100 found dead in just eight weeks.

A total of 106 dolphins and porpoises have washed up on Cornwall's beaches and in the nets of fishing boats in just eight weeks, according to Cornwall Wildlife Trust.

The toll for the whole of last year was 205 while in the two previous years the numbers had been under 100.

Large trawlers are being blamed for the alarming increase – with French boats said to be the worst offenders as they work in pairs.

It is understood they are competing with dolphins for fish such as mackerel, herring, bass and sprats and experts say they are wiping out entire family groups.

The mammals get caught up in the nets used by trawlermen and are suffocated when held under the water.

Lindy Hingley, founder of Brixham Sea Watch, said: "It's murder. It's a massacre.

"It takes 20 minutes for them to die, and it's an appalling death."

South Africa: DEA makes big call on rhino horn sales

According to the Department of Environmental Affairs, the time has come to sell rhino horn.

Speaking in a Parliamentary portfolio committee on Tuesday, Minister Edna Molewa said there had been a moritorium on rhino horn sales since 2009 because the depatment needed to ‘clear its house.’

But all the orders and regulations were in place, she said, a lot of work had been done and ‘people are asking why we need a moratorium.’ Those people, clearly, are rhino farmers and keepers of state stockpiles.

------------------------------------------------------------

The backstory to her announcement is that last year the moratorium was challenged by private sector rhino breeders who won on a technicality. Molewa, took the result on appeal to the Constitutional Court.

Then, on February 8 – possibly contemplating losing the case – she announced new draft regulations to permit legal internal trade in rhino horn and setting out conditions favourable for its export. If passed, each person will be able to buy, own, sell or export two rhino horns. The public have 30 days from date of the gazette to make representations or objections.
