The Art of Aubrey Beardsley (A Collection of His Works) I started this project about 3 years ago, when I took a razor blade to an already falling apart copy of "The Early Works of Aubrey Beardsley" (Dover Edition 1967) and scanned in all of the images. I've taken a few liberties with color corrections, scaling, and compositing of multi-page images. Some may be ever so slightly skewed because of the way they were scanned in, meaning - very primitively using a relatively crummy $40 Plustek flatbed. A Conversation with Ursula von Rydingsvard I first heard of Ursula von Rydingsvard from my friend Jane Rosen. "She's a great artist," she told me. "You should interview her." But Ursula lives in New York and I had my hands full in the Bay Area. It didn't seem likely to happen.

Prints JONATHAN LEVINE GALLERY EXCLUSIVE: The Bored Heiress a ten color, hand signed and numbered serigraph, 19" x 29" released in conjunction with the "Thursday's Girl" exhibition in April 2013 Jonathan Levine Gallery, New York Samantha Donnelly - Ceri Hand Gallery Samantha Donnelly's practice is primarily sculptural. She has a materials-led approach to making, underpinned by references to art history and popular culture - specifically photography, TV, film and advertisements. Her work is made through questioning, rephrasing and reworking a range of sculptural matter, mass-produced household wares, imported fashion bargains and second-hand finds in the studio over a period of time. Her way of making gives the work a strong sense of time which mirrors conventions found in the media (editing, cropping, elimination, montage, narration). This results in a fragmented / abstract / partial quality to finished work; some appearing relic-like and precious, whereas others are seemingly transient and momentary, on the edge of dissolve.

Romaine Brooks Brooks had an unhappy childhood after her father abandoned the family; her mother was emotionally abusive and her brother mentally ill. By her own account, her childhood cast a shadow over her whole life. She spent several years in Italy and France as a poor art student, then inherited a fortune upon her mother's death in 1902. Wealth gave her the freedom to choose her own subjects. She often painted people close to her, such as the Italian writer and politician Gabriele D'Annunzio, the Russian dancer Ida Rubinstein, and her partner of more than 50 years, the writer Natalie Barney.

Life Magnified: A Gallery of Macro Photos The National Institute of Health (NIH) has launched a Web companion to the 2014 exhibit at Washington Dulles International Airport entitled Life: Magnified. The exhibit displays scientific images showing cells and other scenes of life magnified by as much as 50,000 times. Most of the colors in these images do not occur in nature. Rather, they are the result of chemical dyes or graphic design programs that allow scientists to study selected structures within a cell. Developing nerve cells. HIV (yellow) infecting a human cell.

PRE-RAPHAELITE ART Archive Random Submit Ask List of Paintings by Artist The short-lived but highly influential Pre-Raphaelite movement was a reform group of artists and poets founded in 1849. Their main objective in art was to reject the dramatic, artificial Mannerist painting styles succeeding Raphael and Michelangelo (hence the term "Pre-Raphaelite") and to create more genuine, humble representations of their subjects. They painted brightly-colored, evenly-lit scenes with a particular emphasis on romanticism, elaborate detail, medieval history, symbolism, and nature. Updated frequently.
