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

Same old, same old. How the hipster aesthetic is taking over the world | Opinion Go to Shoreditch Grind, near a roundabout in the middle of London’s hipster district. It’s a coffee shop with rough-hewn wooden tables, plentiful sunlight from wide windows, and austere pendant lighting. Then head to Takk in Manchester. It’s a coffee shop with a big glass storefront, reclaimed wood furniture, and hanging Edison bulbs. It’s no accident that these places look similar. It’s not just coffee shops, either. In an essay for the American tech website The Verge, I called this style “AirSpace”. Hence the replicability: if a hip creative travels to Berlin or Tallinn, they seek out a place that looks like AirSpace, perhaps recommending it on Foursquare or posting a photo of it to Instagram to gain the approval of culturally savvy friends. You can hop from cookie-cutter bar to office space to apartment building, and be surrounded by those same AirSpace tropes I described above. There are several causes of AirSpace. But the king of AirSpace is Airbnb. AirSpace is convenient, yes. Same old, same old. How the hipster aesthetic is taking over the world | Opinion
Disney's Frozen: The power of princess merchandising | The Independent Disney's Frozen: The power of princess merchandising | The Independent The Patriot Centre at George Mason University, half an hour west of Washington, is a popular place to watch concerts, college athletics, professional wrestling and other events that command the attention of the adult world. But no event in the 29-year history of the arena has attracted as many people or earnt as much money as October's performances of "Disney on Ice Presents Frozen". For six days, waves of little blue-and-white Princess Elsas – and quite a few costumed parents – sang the movie's hit song "Let it Go" at the top of their lungs, enjoyed £10 snow cones (syrup-soaked ice shavings), posed for £15 pictures with cardboard cut-outs, and waved plastic sticks, which had miraculously become £18 magic wands. Behold the bewitching power of branding. The creators of Frozen, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, tell me that they set out to create characters young girls would recognise. Frozen: The Princess Diary Brands are said to be in decline. After all, who wants to say no to their princess?
On July 1, 1941, baseball fans watching the Brooklyn Dodgers game on WNBT witnessed a breakthrough in marketing. For 10 long seconds, before the first pitch, their black-and-white screens showed a fixed image of a clock, superimposed on a map of the United States. A voice-over, from the watchmaker Bulova, intoned: “America runs on Bulova time.” It was the first official TV advertisement in U.S. history. As anyone who watched the Super Bowl knows, TV advertising has evolved from frozen images and voice-overs to stories so entertaining that we occasionally shush each other in order to hear them. The history of affordable news and entertainment in America is, in many respects, a chronicle of advertising’s successful shifts from one medium to the next. “We’re in the midst of something similar today with our phones,” Lears told me recently. This may seem like good news—many ads, after all, are annoying and intrusive. This deficit of imagination stems, in part, from a deficit of information.

Experimentamos terror ante el vacío No es de extrañar que tras este pasado marcado por la obsesión compulsiva de llenar el vacío, mucha gente, cuando se enfrenta a una transparencia en blanco, se siente en la obligación de llenarla de contenidos. ¿Por qué llenamos nuestras transparencias de datos, texto, gráficos e imágenes? Haz del vacío el centro de tu obra El espacio en blanco (o negativo) es tan importante como los elementos positivos que se ubican sobre ese espacio.

Noche estrellada, de Van Gogh – La Cueva del Cíclope En las profundidades azules, las estrellas resplandecían, verdosas, amarillas, blancas, rosas, más brillantes…VINCENT VAN GOGH Noche Estrellada, pintado en 1889. Hemos estado trabajando con este cuadro, titulado Noche Estrellada. A Van Gogh siempre le interesaron las escenas nocturnas. Un detalle de las pinceladas del cuadro Lo más importante de esta pintura es el cielo estrellado y luminoso, con la luna en la parte derecha, y un enorme ciprés a la izquierda, que domina la escena. Los colores que utiliza son una gama de azules y verdes para el cielo y el paisaje, que contrastan con el amarillo y blanco de las estrellas y la luna. Otro detalle de las pinceladas Para trabajar con este cuadro, nos hemos ayudado de Google Art Project, un espacio que muestra grandes obras maestras de todos los tiempos en alta resolución. En 1971, el músico Don McLean compuso una canción dedicada a este cuadro y a Van Gogh. Nosotros la hemos utilizado como banda sonora de nuestra galería de trabajos. >>Más info: Noche estrellada, de Van Gogh – La Cueva del Cíclope

In pictures: Fifty years of the Notting Hill Carnival Image copyright Getty Images Every year more than one million people descend on the streets of west London to enjoy two days of festivities at the Notting Hill Carnival. Disagreement over when the event was first held means the carnival's 50th anniversary will be marked again this year, as it was in 2014 and 2015. The first parades in the 1960s had many similarities to those held now. BBC News looks at how the event has developed into what organisers claim is the largest street party in Europe. Image copyright Notting Hill Carnival In 1959 a Caribbean style cabaret was held at St Pancras Town Hall to showcase the styles of carnival. Image copyright Tom Vague/Notting Hill Carnival Other Caribbean events were held in London during the 1960s before a parade was organised in Notting Hill by a team led by social worker Rhuanne Laslett. The organisers said the aim of the festival was to bring cultures together through arts and Caribbean steel bands. Image copyright PA Image copyright AFP/Getty Images
Follow Julia Hobbs as she explores this singular group of individuals and what caused them to push the limits of fashion. NEW Romantics: for some, the name may conjure up a popular Taylor Swift song, but its true meaning refers to a period of high fashion decadence and unparalleled glamour in London’s sartorial history. Back when the Eighties burst onto the scene in a flurry of lamé, ruffles and vinyl amidst the somewhat grey and uncertain socio-political background of the time, there was an underground group of Londoners who used eccentric clothes, accessories, make-up and music to rebel, restructure and escape. Congregating in the clubs of the time – think Blitz and the legendary Billy’s on Dean Street, both now no longer there – the Blitz Kids, as they were also known, donned frilly shirts, pie-crust collars, French clown-inspired looks and any other striking, unusual pieces they could get their hands on to rail against the status quo. Vogue’s Julia Hobbs relives the era with original Blitz Kid Stephen Jones and gets up-close with a new wave of style blazers. | British Vogue
Why there's no such thing as an iconic image | Art and design A ripped Che Guevara poster in fluorescent pink and turquoise was my first contact with a so-called “iconic image”. Later came Tiananmen Square: the picture of a man blocking the path of a column of tanks in China, in 1989. I’ve mulled over both recently in connection with the label “iconic”. Of course, growing up in another time or place might prompt other “iconic” pictures. Think about the Byzantine church-image conflict. Reportedly, Saint Ernesto “Che” Guevara has joined the throng, at least in Bolivia, where he was executed in 1967. But is it Alberto Korda’s famous 1960 photograph of Che – reproduced millions of times – that’s iconic or Che himself? Turning to Tiananmen Square, four photographers (I was one of them) took pictures of the man standing in front of the tanks from the Beijing Hotel. A century before pop culture, the icon turned up in the literature of semiotics, where words, and then images, were parsed and picked over. Let’s face it.
