Musée du Louvre Matisse au Centre Pompidou : pour une esthétique de la répétition Matisse au Centre Pompidou : pour une esthétique de la répétition © Crédit photo : © Succession H. Matisse, La Blouse Roumaine, 1940 L'exposition « Matisse, Paires et séries », inaugurée au Centre Pompidou le 7 mars, explore l'ensemble de l'œuvre du peintre fauviste à travers la répétition des motifs et la variation des formes. Une approche inédite pour comprendre la genèse de chaque projet, et porter un regard neuf sur l'art d'Henri Matisse. Et si on regardait Matisse autrement ? Variations, répétition et cohérence« Je souhaitais montrer la cohérence de son oeuvre à travers un aspect singulier, essentiel et continu : la manière dont l’artiste a travaillé en reprenant ou répétant les mêmes compositions selon des toiles et des traitements formels distincts, en paires ou séries ». © Succession H. © Succession H.

ATLAS HISTORIQUE - Cartographie & histoire the definitive city guide for the mobile generation Quirky, softly-lit bars are to Neukölln what kid-friendly Bio-Cafes are to Prenzlauer Berg. They’re everywhere. In fact, if you fell over within a 1km radius of the Schillerpromenade, you’d probably land on an upcycled armchair with a Moscow Mule in your hand. Such is their abundance, that picking one to park up in can prove problematic (first world problems eh?). It ticks many boxes of the modern Kneipe: There’s foosball out back, giant art on the wall, and the vibe is more ‘kick back’ than ‘kick off’. Friends of the place spin crackly, old gramophone tunes on quieter nights, and let loose with meatier sets of a higher BPM come the weekend. The Axis Plan To Invade America In 1942 Taken from the March 2, 1942 issue of Life, these diagrams and maps detailed how the Axis powers could invade North America following Pearl Harbor. The Axis Plan was imagined in 6 Plans (Plan 1 is above): Plan 2 of the Axis plan to invade America has the Japanese invading the West Coast of America via Pearl Harbor and then California. Plan 3 of of the Axis plan to invade America has the Japanese invading North America through the Panama Canal, then proceeding up through Mexico to the West Coast of the United States.

The National Gallery, London: Western European painting 1250–1900 Introduction: Human Evolution Read full article Continue reading page |1|2|3 The incredible story of our evolution from ape ancestors spans 6 million years or more, and features the acquirement of traits from bipedal walking, large brains, hairlessness, tool-making, hunting and harnessing fire, to the more recent development of language, art, culture and civilisation. Darwin's The Origin of Species, published in 1859, suggested that humans were descended from African apes. Over the last century, many spectacular discoveries have shed light on the history of the human family. Walking tall Humans are really just a peculiar African ape - we share about 98% of our DNA with chimpanzees, our closest living relatives. At around 6 million years ago, the first apes to walk on two legs appear in the fossil records. Bipedalism may have evolved when drier conditions shrank dense African forests.
