ART & ARTISTS: J. C. Leyendecker - part 7 Joseph Christian Leyendecker (1874 – 1951) was one of the pre-eminent American illustrators of the early 20th century. He is best known for his poster, book and advertising illustrations, the trade character known as The Arrow Collar Man, and his numerous covers for The Saturday Evening Post. Between 1896 and 1950 Leyendecker illustrated more than 400 magazine covers including 322 for The Saturday Evening Post, as well as many advertisement illustrations for its interior pages. No other artist, until the arrival of Norman Rockwell two decades later, was so solidly identified with one publication.For full biographical notes see part 1.

everything will be okay. I’ve been a member at the Huntington Library and Gardens for a while now, but never ventured into this room. The Desert Garden conservatory is hands down my new favorite spot. I think the thing I love about desert plants is how textured they are, how they don’t need much attention and they can hold their own. They’re pretty independent, which is strange to say about something planted in dirt. The Huntington Library has a plethora of different gardens, all unique and beautiful. It makes for a great afternoon to go meandering around, soaking up the sun. exasperated viewer on air May Hands - Chanel and Song River stack, 2014 wooden stretcher and muslin; wooden stretcher, polythene, fruit and vegetable packaging and Chanel tissue paper; fruit and vegetable packaging, cellophane and paint hook 150 x 120 cm, 25 x 35 cm

Tarkovsky Films Now Free Online Andrei Tarkovsky (1932-1986) firmly positioned himself as the finest Soviet director of the post-War period. But his influence extended well beyond the Soviet Union.

Ingmar Bergman went so far as to say, "Tarkovsky for me is the greatest [director], the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream." And Akira Kurosawa acknowledged his influence too, adding, "I love all of Tarkovsky's films.

This Crazy Visual Symphony Is Like Being Inside a Computer, on Drugs The performance is scripted, but the performers on stage add their own flavor to the proceedings, like a musical performer. Ryoji Ikeda Microfiche, crossword puzzles, and Morse Code don’t sound like the makings of a compelling live performance, but in the hands of Japanese maestro Ryoji Ikeda, these mundane materials become the core of a dynamic audio-visual spectacle called Superposition. The hour-long performance is something like a high-tech rave with a year’s worth of high-school science class schizophrenically drawn upon as its raw material. Twenty small monitors sit on the front of a stage with one theater-sized screen stretching behind two performers.
