Download 2,500 Beautiful Woodblock Prints and Drawings by Japanese Masters (1600-1915) No one art form has done more to shape the world's sense of traditional Japanese aesthetics than the woodblock print. But not so very long ago, in historical terms, no such works had ever left Japan. That changed when, according to the Library of Congress, "American naval officer Matthew Calbraith Perry (1794-1858) led an expedition to Japan between 1852 and 1854 that was instrumental in opening Japan to the Western world after more than 200 years of national seclusion."

A History of Russia in a Massive Photo Archive Vladislav Mikosha, “VSHV Veterinary treatment” (1939–40) (photo courtesy Moscow’s Multimedia Art Museum) Prepare to get swept away in a stream of over 150 years of photographs capturing all sorts of scenes of Russian life. Moscow’s Multimedia Art Museum and Yandex — the country’s largest search engine — recently joined forces to launch an online photo bank that is ridiculously massive, bringing together photographs not only from museums and public archives but also from personal collections across the world’s largest nation. The portal, simply called “The History of Russia,” received support from the Ministry of Culture and the Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications and is intended to acquaint visitors with Russian history through visuals. It is written in Russian, but you don’t necessarily have to read the language to navigate it, especially if your browser is able to translate the texts.

The Berlin Airlift PRELUDE TO CONFLICT At the end of WWII, a defeated Germany was divided amongst the victors, the United States, the Soviet Union, Great Britain, and France. The Soviet Union took control of the Eastern half of Germany, the Western half was divided amongst the US, Great Britain, and France. Like the rest of the country, the capital city of Berlin, sitting dead in the middle of the Soviet-controlled Eastern half, was also divided into four parts, one half being Soviet controlled, and the rest divided amongst the others. A four-power provisional government, called the Allied Control Council, was installed in Berlin.
