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.

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.
Entertainment Bangalore Chennai and Tamil Nadu Delhi Hyderabad Thiruvananthapuram Slow dies the calendar art ART THAT WAS A sample of Yogendra Rastogi's calendar art. Nearly 10 years ago, one had interviewed Yogendra Rastogi, one of the most famous calendar art painters of North India. It was at his studio in Meerut. Ensconced in his small but meticulously clean studio, Rastogi was extremely wary of his work being photographed, and spoke of the preservation accorded to his calendar paintings in air-conditioned and dehumidified rooms. A decade later, Rastogi's respect for the generally devalued category of calendar art has proved well placed. The rush to collect popular prints and calendar paintings prints and artefacts has crystallised in important collections and exhibitions such as those by Schelberger and Neumayer and Jyotindra Jain, which emphasise on the ubiquity and the eclectic nature of calendar art.
