Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner: Rare Photos, 1949 Is he the greatest living painter in the United States? That was the direct, provocative question asked in an August 1949 LIFE magazine article that helped cement Jackson Pollock’s reputation. It was a question Pollock spent much of the rest of his life struggling to answer — while desperately hoping to show the skeptics why LIFE was right to even ask such a monumental question in the first place. As the single most recognizable practitioner of Abstract Expressionism — the movement that put America and, specifically, post-World War II New York at the epicenter of painting’s avant-garde — Pollock was a genuine art star. Here, LIFE presents outtakes from photographer Martha Holmes’ 1949 shoot with Pollock — images that offer a unique portrait of the artist’s home life with wife and fellow painter Lee Krasner on eastern Long Island, and the singular working method that made him an art-world icon. Today, a painting from Pollock’s “drip period” can fetch north of $100 million at auction. Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner: Rare Photos, 1949

Understanding the Fibonacci Sequence and Golden Ratio – Fractal Enlightenment The Fibonacci Sequence The Fibonacci sequence is possibly the most simple recurrence relation occurring in nature. It is 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89, 144… each number equals the sum of the two numbers before it, and the difference of the two numbers succeeding it. It is an infinite sequence which goes on forever as it develops. The Golden Ratio/Divine Ratio or Golden Mean - The quotient of any Fibonacci number and it’s predecessor approaches Phi, represented as ϕ (1.618), the Golden ratio. This iteration can continue both ways, infinitely. The Golden Ratio can be seen from a Chambered Nautilus to a Spiraling Galaxy The Golden Ratio can be applied to any number of geometric forms including circles, triangles, pyramids, prisms, and polygons. Sunflowers have a Golden Spiral seed arrangement. If you graph any number system, eventually patterns appear. Our universe and the numbers not only go on infinitely linear, but even it’s short segments have infinite points.

Entre els segles XI i XIII es va desenvolupar a gran part d’Europa l'estil artístic anomenat romànic. La gran importància de la religió a la societat medieval i el pes excepcional de l’Església van fer que les manifestacions artístiques d’aquella època fossin essencialment religioses. Dins de l’art romànic, l’arquitectura va ocupar un lloc fonamental, esglésies, monestirs, castells i palaus. Els elements essencials d’una església romànica són: La planta era d’un únic braç amb una o tres naus. Romànic
Entre el segle XI i la meitat del segle XII en els regnes feudals de l’occident europeu va anar formant-se un estil artístic comú a tots ells: l’estil romànic. Per primera vegada des de la caiguda de l’Imperi Romà, el territori europeu va quedar unificat per un mateix estil artístic. La major estabilitat política d’aquest període, els inicis de l’expansió econòmica i l’increment dels contactes entre els regnes cristians (gràcies al peregrinatge i el desenvolupament del comerç) van afavorir aquesta unitat d’estil, tot i que en cada territori va tenir característiques particulars. L’art del romànic va ser predominantment rural. L’Església era el principal client dels artesans, als quals encarregava la construcció i decoració de petites esglésies en les nombroses viles i pobles de l’època. D’aquesta manera, la religiositat és la característica més important del romànic. L’objectiu principal de les obres d’art era provocar un apropament dels fidels cap a Déu. L’arquitectura del romànic: L’art romànic-
L’art gòtic- L’estil gòtic va desenvolupar-se a Europa des de mitjans del segle XII fins a les darreries del segle XV, lligat amb el gran desenvolupament urbà d’occident, fenomen que va provocar un veritable furor arquitectònic donant pas a que s’aixequessin edificis més alts i lluminosos. D’aquesta manera, les ciutats van veure sorgir nombrosos grups de picapedrers, paletes i fusters, dirigits per mestres d’obres i arquitectes. En aquest període l’Església va construir grans catedrals per als habitants d’aquests nuclis, símbols del poder econòmic i de la fe dels seus habitants. Tanmateix, van crear-se noves ordres religioses que van fundar convents i esglésies a les ciutats. L’arquitectura gòtica: A finals del segle XIII, l’estil gòtic va succeir definitivament el romànic. La catedral era l'edifici més representatiu del nou estil artístic gòtic. El gòtic, igual que el romànic, va ser un art religiós, però també el símbol del poder i la riquesa de les ciutats. S’usava l’arc ogival o apuntat.
