Dürer's Rhinoceros The rhinoceros[edit] The first known print of the rhinoceros is a rather primitive woodcut which illustrates a poem by Giovanni Giacomo Penni published in Rome in July 1515. (Biblioteca Colombina, Seville). On 20 May 1515, an Indian rhinoceros arrived in Lisbon from the Far East.

The mission returned without an agreement, but diplomatic gifts were exchanged, including the rhinoceros.[7] At that time, the rulers of different countries would occasionally send each other exotic animals to be kept in a menagerie. After a relatively fast voyage of 120 days, the rhinoceros was finally unloaded in Portugal, near the site where the Manueline Belém Tower was under construction.

Dürer's Magic Square Dürer's magic square is a magic square with magic constant 34 used in an engraving entitled Melancholia I by Albrecht Dürer (The British Museum, Burton 1989, Gellert et al. 1989). The engraving shows a disorganized jumble of scientific equipment lying unused while an intellectual sits absorbed in thought. Dürer's magic square is located in the upper right-hand corner of the engraving. The numbers 15 and 14 appear in the middle of the bottom row, indicating the date of the engraving, 1514. Dürer's magic square has the additional property that the sums in any of the four quadrants, as well as the sum of the middle four numbers, are all 34 (Hunter and Madachy 1975, p. 24).

Atelier de la peintre russe Marie Vassilieff Picasso, Matisse, Soutine, Modigliani, Appolinaire, Blaise Cendrars, Max Jacob... Les plus grands artistes du siècle dernier ont fréquenté cette villa nichée dans une ruelle bucolique de Montparnasse. A l'époque, la villa abritait l'atelier de la peintre et sculptrice russe Marie Vassilieff (1884-1957) mais aussi une cantine ouverte par l'artiste. Par la suite, elle a accueilli le musée du Montparnasse qui a fermé ses portes en 2013.

Outdoor Rooftop Bar, Club, Restaurant NYC New York | 230 Fifth Van Gogh - Le premier film entièrement peint. Autoportrait cinématographique. Back in 2014, Oscar-winning studio Breakthru Films began work on the world’s first fully painted feature-length film – and with this beautiful new trailer, they offer a first look at what you can expect from the landmark project. Loving Vincent not only brings the works of Vincent Van Gogh to life, it also tells the story of the artist’s life and death through fictional interviews with the characters in his paintings. The film will use a new oil painting for each shot, with movement added from one frame to the next by a painter’s brush. So far, around 100 artists have taken part in the project, with more than 56,000 paintings needed to fill the film’s running time. Loving Vincent is being directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman and stars Aidan Turner, Saoirse Ronan and Helen McCrory.
