Chivalry first developed as a code of honor that emphasized bravery, loyalty, & generosity for knights at war in the 11th & 12th centuries. By the later Middle Ages illuminated manuscripts had helped establish chivalry as a system of values that permeated almost every aspect of aristocratic culture.

Explore some of these images, currently featured in the exhibition Chivalry in the Middle Ages, in this album. All images are high-resolution + downloadable.

Happy Birthday Julia Margaret Cameron!
This image recreates the scene of the Nativity, in which Christ's mother, the Virgin Mary, and her husband Joseph watch over the newborn, sleeping Christ child. Julia Margaret Cameron may have decided to include a fourth figure, the young girl at the left, to add pictorial balance to the composition.

Prayer and Praise, Julia Margaret Cameron, 1865

Happy Birthday Paul Gauguin!
Gauguin may have carved this almost life-sized head as a symbolic self-portrait. He made the sculpture while living in Tahiti, where he studied the native culture and, to a great extent, identified with the local people. Despite his pampered upbringing, Gauguin saw himself as a "savage," untamed by the civilizing force of French society. 

Head with Horns, Paul Gauguin, 1895-97

Happy Earth Day!
To see a World in a Grain of Sand 
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, 
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand 
And Eternity in an hour.
—William Blake

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.
―Charles M. Schulz
Today in 1550 is the traditional date chocolate is thought to have been introduced to Europe. French 18th-century double-handled cup and saucer was probably used to serve hot chocolate

Cup and Saucer, Du Paquier Porcelain Manufactory, about 1740

According to folklorist Alexander Carmichael, Scottish fisherman predicted the weather from the winds on this day:

Wind from the west, fish and bread;
Wind from the north, cold and flaying;
Wind from the east, snow on the hills,
Wind from the south, fruit on trees.

Happy Birthday Gustave Courbet!
Courbet, who had previously painted less than a handful of flower pictures, took up the genre enthusiastically during a stay in western France in 1862. Intending to visit his friend Etienne Baudry for two weeks, he arrived at the garden enthusiast's château in May and remained in the area for 11 months.

With his friend's encouragement, Courbet explored flower painting using Baudry's extensive gardens, greenhouses, and library of botanical books. He painted about 20 flower pictures and remarked to a friend, "I am coining money out of flowers." 

Bouquet of Flowers in a Vase, Gustave Courbet, 1862

Happy Easter!
Here painter Pieter Lastman emphasized the expressive power of the miracle taking place, contrasting divine light with the doom of the unredeemed. An angel gently lifts the heavy lid from the tomb as Christ ascends to heaven surrounded by putti.

Went here numerous times for school, even for work, and just because. It is so beautiful and inspiring and it never gets old. The architecture, the gardens, the view, and of course, the art. I also think their exhibits are interesting and go to see one every so often. Getting here by bus is easy from Wilshire/UCLA, it stops right in front of, I believe the only entrance. I feel like the entrance is always under construction though, but it's no big deal. A must if you're in LA.

Not only a wonderful museum, but also beautiful architecture and scenic views of the hills and blue skies. Still can't believe admission is free; you only pay to park. The art collection is very good and curated well. A must see!
