Marie Colvin lost the sight in her left eye when covering the civil war in Sri Lanka in 2001  A US court has found Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's government liable for the death of American war correspondent Marie Colvin in February 2012.  Colvin, 56, died in the besieged city of Homs, Syria, alongside French photographer Remi Ochlik, 28, when the building they were in was shelled. US District Judge Amy Berman Jackson said it was an "extrajudicial killing". She also ordered Damascus to pay $302.5m (£231m) in damages for an "unconscionable crime". The civil lawsuit was filed by Colvin's family in 2016. The Syrian government was not involved in defending the case. Colvin worked for the Sunday Times, covering the Syrian civil war that began in 2011.  What did the court rule?  The US District Court for the District of Columbia found that the Syrian military and intelligence tracked the broadcasts of the journalists covering the siege of Homs, and then targeted the media centre in a barrage of artillery fire. Photographer Remi Ochlik also died in the shelling  Colvin "was specifically targeted because of her profession, for the purpose of silencing those reporting on the growing opposition movement in the country," the judge ruled. "[The] murder of journalists acting in their professional capacity could have a chilling effect on reporting such events worldwide." In addition, the Syrian government was ordered to pay $2.5m in compensation to Colvin's sister, Cathleen, and $11,836 in funeral expenses.  In a 2016 interview with NBC News, President Assad said: "It's a war and she [Colvin] came illegally to Syria. "She worked with the terrorists, and because she came illegally, she's been responsible of everything that befall on her." Experts predict that Colvin's family is likely to face a lengthy battle to recover any of the damages awarded.

#repost @yolo_duo with @get_repost ・・・ ▪️Gershwin is the first composer who wrote the American opera (1935 Porgy and Bess). ▪️The biography of the maestro has many amazing ups and no less ambitious falls, his whole life seems to embody the American dream. Gershwin achieved everything through hard work, because his family was very simple, he found his vocation and reached inconceivable heights and world fame. However, his fate was tragic ... he lived only 38 years. ▪️For a musical composition to one of the films, Gershwin was awarded an Oscar, but this award was handed to him posthumously, since he had died suddenly by that moment. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ . . . . . 👁‍🗨 Full Version on YouTube  @_piano_music_ @piano.talents  #gershwin #musicaclassica #prelude #porgy #and #bess #life #composer #musician #piano #pianoduo #music #jazz #opera #fame #american #dream #interesting #facts #biography #classicalmusic #гершвин #композитор #джаз #поргиибесс

Watched: Stan and Ollie (2018). I really wanted to see this because I love Steve Coogan. However I knew almost nothing about Laurel and Hardy and I have only seen Babes in Toyland. I found the movie to be a bit too slow for me and I felt a little lost at times because it doesn’t give enough background but I imagine that for real Laurel and Hardy fans this movie might be alot more enjoyable. I still think it’s a well made film that deserves a watch.
•My Duality Designed Cutting Board• I couldn’t wait. I had to see what it looked like with some sheen on it. I’m very happy with this design. The board measures 10.5x20.5... My runoff valleys are 7/8 wide 1/8 deep and approximately 1/4 from the edges. I prefer my valleys closest to the edges. Gives you more cutting room and puts all the attention in the center. . Species of wood are Padauk & Zebra. Nice deep handle groove so your fingers don’t slip. I’ll soak it in some oil tonight and hit it with some Howard’s board conditioner and she’ll be ready for action. #woodworking #finewoodworking  #startingover #heiznwulfwoodworks #newbeginnings #wood #woodshop #woodcraft #handmade #tinyhouse #tinyliving #biography #carpentry #wooddesign #art #land #woodart #construction #makita #woodwork #woodworks #tablesaw #woodfurniture #handtools #woodworkingcommunity #joinery #craft #wooden #tools #cuttingboard

1832. március 19-én született Wamberger Hermann azaz Vámbéry Ármin. Tehetős ismerősi segítségével végezhette el iskoláit, és bár nyelvi tehetsége hamar kitűnt, idővel egyetemi oktató lett és az akadémia is tagjai sorába emelte, de maga egyetemet sosem végzett. Több évig tartó hosszú és veszélyes Közép-ázsiai útjáról 1864 májusában érkezett vissza Pestre, ahonnan Londonba utazott, hogy megszervezze utazásairól írott könyvének angol nyelvű kiadását. A "Travels in Central Asia" 1865-ben jelent meg és hatására nemzetközileg elismert író és híresség lett. Megismerkedett a brit társadalmi élet kiválóságaival. Állítólag ő adta az alapötletet Bram Stoker-nek a Drakula megírásához. Életének kevéssé ismert részlete az is, hogy törökországi tartózkodása alatt a Brit külügynek rendszeresen küldött jelentéseket.  1849. március 19-én született Baditz Ottó festő, aki jogi diplomájának megszerzése után kezdett művészeti tanulmányaiba. 1870-től két évig a bécsi képzőművészeti akadémián Karl Wurzinger, majd a müncheni képzőművészeti akadémián Wilhelm Diez tanítványa lett. 1872-től 1890-ig élt Münchenben, ahol az akadémia elvégzése után saját műtermet nyitott. 1880-tól rendszeresen szerepelt budapesti, londoni, párizsi és bécsi kiállításokon. 1881-ben Párizsban a Falu rossza című képével aranyérmet nyert. Bár a korábbi években is több hónapot töltött Magyarországon, végleg 1890-ben tért haza, és a főváros legkeresettebb gyermekportré-festője lett. Továbbra is készített életképeket, szentképeket, illetve könyvillusztrációval is foglalkozott.  1904. március 19-én született Csemiczky Tihamér grafikus és festő. Gyógyszerésznek tanult, de mellette 1924–1925 között az Iparművészeti Iskola rajztanfolyamait is látogatta, 1929-1930 között pedig Bortnyik Sándor szabadiskolájában tanult, nem is rosszul, mert az

Name: Anna Carson, actually Anna Maximoff. - Age: 15. - Height: 5’. - Weight: Around 100 pounds. - Personality: Anna is a very smart girl, but she opinionated and firey. She fits the red head stereo type of having a short temper. She’s not very trusting and will run away from all her problems. - Appearance: She has red hair and blue eyes. Her skin is pale. Anna usually wears a school uniform as she had been fortunate enough to get into a good school. - Background: Years ago, Scarlet Witch had been captured and experimented on. During the experimentation, they took one of her eggs, and fertilized it. They took care of it until it was a fully grown infant, and that was Anna. Scarlet never knew about her daughter, as they hid it from her. Since Anna didn’t know her parents, she was put into the New York foster care system and she was moved around a lot. She had no powers, so far, so everyone assumed she was just a normal little girl. As she hit puberty, her powers had started to develop. - Starter: It was 4th period at her high school, which meant lunch was next. She sat there in the back of the class, doing nothing since she was in Study Hall. As she’s sitting there, y/c notices something strange. A red flash was coming from her hands. Her eyes widen as she had no idea what was happening. She didn’t know y/c very well, but you had powers as well. - (DM me a bio and continue. You can choose to be anyone you want, or if you don’t want to have any powers, let me know.) - #animerp #animeroleplay #mangarp #rp #roleplay #openrp #openroleplay #newrp #dirtyrp #literaterp #literateroleplay #lolirp #rpbio #managroleplay #nsfwrp #fantasyrp #ocrp #romancerp #anime #manga #mangaroleplay #biography #loli #ocbio #characterbio #animebio #mangaroleplay #roleplaybio #animeroleplaybio

When the Moon Split by famous writer Saifur Rahman Mubarakpuri is a seerah(biography) of the Prophet(pbuh). I have read a few biographies of the Prophet(pbuh) but hands down I have enjoyed this one the most. It may be partly because I went through it with a teacher at @alhuda and we connected a lot of verses from the qura'an to the seerah, so it made it that much more enjoyable.  Asides from that, this is the first seerah I've come across that's included imagery in the book to better explain certain parts of the book (who doesn't love pictures in a book?). Moreover, each chapter is concluded with morals and values to be taken away from each chapter and then a list of questions to be answered, making it easier to solidify the knowledge extracted from each chapter. You can get When the Moon Split on Amazon, it is a little pricey on there so I would recommend checking your local Islamic book store.  _____________________________________________________________#Seerah #islam #biography #muslim #bookreview #torontomuslim #makkah #madinah #prophetmuhammad #mompreneur #bookjunkie #aishani

In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African-American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments.  Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.

Sir Leo Cussen, who was appointed to the Supreme Court of Victoria on 19 March 1906.  Sir Leo Cussen is probably best known for his role in two consolidations of the Victorian Statute books in 1915 and the mid-1920s. They were immense undertakings and included determining the application of English law in Victoria. Sir Leo was appointed a Supreme Court judge in 1906; he was at various times Acting Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria. In addition, he was trustee and Chairman of both the Art Gallery (NGV) and the Melbourne Cricket Club, and held various positions with the Melbourne University Law Faculty and the Council of Legal Education. Sir Leo was regarded as one of the finest minds of his generation and at his death Robert Menzies, at this time the Commonwealth Attorney General, said that Sir Leo was “one of the great lawyers of the legal speaking world.” Image is a portrait of Sir Leo Cussen from the NGV collection. #history #melbourne #law #supremecourtofvictoria #sirleocussen #portrait #biography
Vice (2019) dir. Adam McKay - 3/5 - FILM REVIEW – Final Part  Whilst McKay and Bale add considerable depth to Cheney's turbulent nature earlier in his life, the film doesn't choose to side with Cheney or his policies. Rather these elements are given a much more absolute and objective depiction. Cheney was an uncompromising and relentless political strategist and businessman. Not exactly redeemable qualities to say the least about the main figure in the film. But there's too much distancing of the actual events and too much political jargon, to make you understand Cheney's reasoning, offering little to no judgements or assessments of him as a political figure and his controversial policies. I guess I didn't want to exactly sympathise or relate with Cheney and why he did what he did – I don't think that this was the point of the film, nor should it have been - I just found the lack of bias impact the story to a greater degree. There is some accountability and self-awareness that the film couldn't hope to offer a sense of bias in the closing moments of the film, so there is that at least.  It's great that we're getting films of this calibre that dissect, investigate, inform and educate audiences on key political figures. Whilst Vice might seem alienating at first, it's well worth a watch but don't expect the rhetoric and subtext of the film to be one that you'll side with.  #vice #vicemovie #2019 #adammckay #christianbale #dickcheney #amyadams #lynnevincentcheney #stevecarell #donaldrumsfeld #samrockwell #georgewbush #jesseplemons #tylerperry #colinpowell #naomiwatts #alfredmolina #sheawhigham #instamovies #movies #instafilm #filmreview #film #films #cinema #satire #biography #comedy #politicalsatire #comedydrama
Vice (2019) dir. Adam McKay - 3/5 - FILM REVIEW – Part 5  Cheney's policies would largely shape modern politics in the face of terrorism, which would then influence worldwide policies, which would then in-turn allow the media to have a much nastier bias, which would then influence and brainwash public opinion, which would then.....you get the idea. Cheney laid the blueprints of the West's response to extremism and agendas in the Middle East. Seeing how current events have played out since, the film shows Cheney in a much more cunning light. It's precisely this dichotomy between Cheney's supposed patriotic/governmental duty - along with his duties as a father and husband - and desire for power, that makes his film characterisation equal measures interesting and problematic. Viewing the film in terms of archetypes, Cheney is the primary antagonist and not even in an anti-hero kind of way making the film lack a bias that I think is needed in a storytelling sense.  #vice #vicemovie #2019 #adammckay #christianbale #dickcheney #amyadams #lynnevincentcheney #stevecarell #donaldrumsfeld #samrockwell #georgewbush #jesseplemons #tylerperry #colinpowell #naomiwatts #alfredmolina #sheawhigham #instamovies #movies #instafilm #filmreview #film #films #cinema #satire #biography #comedy #politicalsatire #comedydrama
Vice (2019) dir. Adam McKay - 3/5 - FILM REVIEW – Part 4  Growing up during the time of the Bush administration – or rather being on the other side of the pond, with the USA's own policies having worldwide ramifications and authority – and being very young, I really couldn't grasp or have any particular interests in the politics of the time. No longer the young and carefree adolescent, I think the film has a lot of relevancy and potency as to what has effectively shaped current politics and rhetoric today. I imagine those in a similar age-range and those who were adults during this time period that the film focuses on, may hold that same relevancy too, demanding more than one watch I presume. The very policies that Cheney enacted in response to the 9/11 Attacks, is the film's focus when he becomes VP: how Cheney created a Vice President position of power, that overruled the power held by the president role itself; domestic and foreign anti-terrorism policies that other countries would follow; policies that (arguably) would promulgate Islamophobic rhetoric throughout the West.  #vice #vicemovie #2019 #adammckay #christianbale #dickcheney #amyadams #lynnevincentcheney #stevecarell #donaldrumsfeld #samrockwell #georgewbush #jesseplemons #tylerperry #colinpowell #naomiwatts #alfredmolina #sheawhigham #instamovies #movies #instafilm #filmreview #film #films #cinema #satire #biography #comedy #politicalsatire #comedydrama
Vice (2019) dir. Adam McKay - 3/5 - FILM REVIEW – Part 3  Cheney was the true smarts behind the policies of the Bush administration and the power that he amassed as Vice President is told in overuse of political jargon. This can alienate at times if you don't keep up with the storytelling. However, Bale manages to engage you with the political narrative, showing the man behind the title with his speech, mannerisms and very presence punctuating scenes with an air of deception and political cunning. It's a true testament to Bale for going all in and delivering (what is shaping up to be) an award-winning performance. It's just a shame that some of the writing and editing fell short to truly give the film a bit more of an edge.  Bale shares the screen with frequent co-star Amy Adams who plays his wife Lynne Cheney. Adams is always a magnetic presence, delivering emotions as well as a strong presence and certainly holds her own against Bale's own performance. Sam Rockwell gives a great performance as George W. Bush, harnessing his inner Texan, he suits the brash sort of lackadaisical and over-energetic and unconcerned demeanour. It's interesting that the film is a lot less about Bush, which I get is the point of the film, but it just serves to illustrate the amount of power that Cheney amassed whilst in-office. Steve Carrell continues to put in a good performance as well as the smarmy and old political battle-axe Donald Rumsfeld. There are some uniquely humorous moments between Bale and Carrell, especially when Cheney is coming through the ranks under Rumsfeld's tutelage.  #vice #vicemovie #2019 #adammckay #christianbale #dickcheney #amyadams #lynnevincentcheney #stevecarell #donaldrumsfeld #samrockwell #georgewbush #jesseplemons #tylerperry #colinpowell #naomiwatts #alfredmolina #sheawhigham #instamovies #movies #instafilm #filmreview #film #films #cinema #satire #biography #comedy #politicalsatire #comedydrama
Vice (2019) dir. Adam McKay - 3/5 - FILM REVIEW – Part 2  McKay has a gift to make very recent events – which you could now call a part of history, even if the time gap has only been 10 years past – feel contemporary and relevant and also engaging when depicted in film-form. Unlike a documentary, he uses the actors' abilities and on-screen presence to really drive home messages of hypocrisies in the sort of stakes involved in very recent events. In film-form, his abilities behind the camera offer him an opportunity to show creative smarts.  Vice isn't any different in that respect, but it suffers too much from McKay's style in a variety of moments and scenes in the film. The ever shifting and toing and froing between scenes that aim to have drama versus those that have comedy/black comedy, don't weave as well as they ought to. This perhaps maybe the fault of the editing, where the pacing and placement of scenes is just slightly off. It may also be the fault of the writing where certain pieces of the film don't fit naturally or flow as well as they should.  That being said, the moments and actual content of the film are damning and seething of the primary proponent of the policies of the Bush administration: Dick Cheney. What more can be said of Christian Bale that hasn't been said before? A committed, versatile, explosive and uncompromising actor, who keeps pushing the boundaries of his own acting abilities, delivering pretty much perfect performances all-round. You could call Vice Bale's Raging Bull (1980) dir. Martin Scorsese moment. Vice sees him get heavier and bulkier for Dick Cheney's large real-life presence. What this adds to the film is a powerful presence, but underneath the physicality of that you have a central performance that is smart, illusive and unnervingly sinister.  #vice #vicemovie #2019 #adammckay #christianbale #dickcheney #amyadams #lynnevincentcheney #stevecarell #donaldrumsfeld #samrockwell #georgewbush #jesseplemons #tylerperry
Vice (2019) dir. Adam McKay - 3/5 - FILM REVIEW – Part 1  A comedy-drama that is slightly confused in its focus and narrative, primarily because of the subject matter at hand: Dick Cheney, the former Vice President to George W. Bush's administration 2000-2009 (for those who don't know). Perhaps the sum of its parts don't entirely work as a whole, but there's enough entertaining, provocative thematic and political subtext and arguments that do make this an engaging, oftentimes darkly comedic watch, with a central performance from Christian Bale that adds to his already extensive list of memorable and physically demanding performances.  Being hugely impressed by Adam McKay's direction of The Big Short (2016), which weaved complex financial/economic jargon, comedy, a genuinely smart script, fourth-wall breaking moments, with the real-life economic stakes and drama all making for a fantastic, historically relevant, engaging and somewhat educational watch about the 2007-2008 financial crisis. Even with some of McKay's purely comedy works, he showed a unique versatility and smarts as a director and writer. With that in mind, I went into Vice with some high expectations. (I'll try my best to focus on Vice, but I can't speak about this film without mentioning the former as a sort of comparison as to how this was the lesser film, despite McKay's abilities behind the camera). #vice #vicemovie #2019 #adammckay #christianbale #dickcheney #amyadams #lynnevincentcheney #stevecarell #donaldrumsfeld #samrockwell #georgewbush #jesseplemons #tylerperry #colinpowell #naomiwatts #alfredmolina #sheawhigham #instamovies #movies #instafilm #filmreview #film #films #cinema #satire #biography #comedy #politicalsatire #comedydrama

Another solid uncle who always has time to teach the old school Hawaiian ways.  Keith K. Kauhane or "Kitty" as he's known in Maui county was the last baby born in 1954 at the Seaman's Lahaina Hospital on Front street. Kitty's Father James E. Kauhane Sr. was the County Supervisor and his Mother Dorothy Ahi cut pineapple at the original Lahaina Cannery. They had thirteen children, seven boy's and five girl's. Kitty explained it was a fun but hard life for his family. Kitty began surfing at the early age of three years old and has easily spent three quarters of his life in the ocean diving and surfing. Kitty always tells me that he thinks surfing sucks now because of the crowds. Kitty was a black coral diver and a bottom fisherman in his younger day. And still at sixty two years old, Kitty free dives everyday for lobster and He'e (octopus) out on the reefs of Lahaina. I stopped Kitty on his way back from diving and that his bag is always half full🏆. ___________________________________________ #tacoeye #kapuna #biography #portraitphotography #storytelling #history #livinglegend #kittykauhane #hawaiian #beachboy

More for #womenshistorymonth: the story of the Red Cross Motor Corps. At a time when automobiles where considered unfit for operation by women, the U.S. found itself with a shortage of ambulance drivers while it's men were away fighting World War One. The corps grew to include 300 cities with 12,000 female drivers on call. Having proved their competence operating ambulances at home, the women of the Red Cross Motor Corps would soon join their countrymen overseas to drive supplies and wounded soldiers through the streets of England and France. One Red Cross volunteer captioned their group photo:⠀ “These are the noble women who did work which would tire any man, they managed, repaired and drove any kind of an automobile through the streets of Paris day and night during the war. In the inky nights of Paris, they plowed through the streets at all hours, never stopping. They were highly praised for their courage by all who had to do with them.”⠀ ⠀ #motivational #novel #biography #insta #daily #booklover #book #nerd #writersofinstagram  #art #illustration #comics #graphicnovels  #daily #productivity  #igreads #booknerds #activist #revolutionary #graphicnovel #educate #social #critic #bookstagram #redcross #history #women

"My name is Mark Schultz. I wanna talk about America and I wanna tell you why I wrestle" . The search for greatness in a destructive American Dream: Foxcatcher . It's almost impossible to talk about all the aspects of this film, because of its rich subject matter; which is why I chose to talk especially about one prominent theme: the American identity. Although this is a true story, it feels very overwhelming and man-crafted, to serve artful and symbolic purposes. But that just might be the genius of this film. The filmmakers turned an incredible true story into something more than just another biopic. They achieved that by utilizing metaphorical elements and certain themes, that allow the audience to really delve into the story and to evoke intellectual reflection. I believe this film's symbolism lies, in part, in the relationships between the two (actually three) main characters. John Du Pont, played brilliantly by Steve Carell, is the very embodiment of The American Success Story. He's rich, extremely patriotic and of course very convincing. His character could even be seen as America or the idealistic American Dream itself. Just like he pulls Mark Schultz in; promising him greatness, fame and appreciation, the American Dream gives everybody (American or not) the notion, that all dreams will come true; that if you abide by the rules you will find stability, greatness and appreciation in America. I draw this parallel because of the multiple scenes portraying the American flag for example and of course because of Du Pont's self-entitled words to Mark in their first meeting: "We as a nation failed to honor you". And at first, I must say, even I was rather convinced by what this man was saying. I mean, he must've done SOMETHING right to be this rich. It seems like an extremely attractive offer for someone like Mark, who has always felt like the underdog, being constantly compared to his brother and all. We all would've done it, right?  And this is what makes Mark

The Biography Channel had a show called I Survived which featured people who survived harrowing moments of of natural disasters, accidents, and violence. Then, for two seasons they featured I Survived: Beyond and Back which told the accounts of people who died and saw the other side. I was on the first season in 2011. The camera angle was creepily close to my face, but I hoped that my story might bring comfort to others. I thought this might be the only time I would tell my story 😂, but all that changed when National Geographic interviewed me in 2016. I knew it was time to write a memoir and be in charge of how my story is told to the world. I was deeply honest and held nothing back in that first draft, then I edited out a few things. I wrote my story because I am a writer and I realized that there is social significance to my story. So many people struggle with some of the same challenges as me. I wanted others to know that the love of God is the most healing force imaginable. I was shocked by the goodness and still am to this day. As long as there is suffering, these stories of the other side must be told. I told my full story in Angels in the OR. It will be released in less than a month.

Name: Sadie Anderson. - Age: 7. - Height: 3 foot 5 inches. - Weight: 40 pounds. - Personality: Sadie has always been a very sweet but opinionated girl. She was never afraid to walk up and talk to someone or yell at someone for doing something wrong. She’s also one to always speak her opinions. - Appearance: Sadie has long blonde hair that she often wore a bow in and pretty blue eyes. Her smile could light up a room and she loved to wear pink. Today, she was wearing a pink cheerleading outfit because it is Halloween. - Background: Sadie lives in a small apartment with her older brother Daniel (age 12) and her mother Abby. Abby works 2 jobs, so she’s hardly ever home. They often had to have baby sitters to keep them safe. Abby had never told either of them about their father, but he was a police officer 3 counties over. - Starter: It’s bedtime for the two kids, but first they needed baths. Daniel had his shower first and now it was Sadie’s turn. Abby had gotten a new babysitter, as the regular one was busy. The babysitter today showed up very late, which angered Abby but she couldn’t do anything about it. As Abby is leaving, Sadie keeps asking for goodnight kisses as she gets into the tub. Abby complies and gives her 5 goodnight kisses before leaving. Daniel has been very bad that day, causing a lot of problems and picking on his sister. He got grounded for breaking one of her toys. After Abby leaves the house, the babysitter asks Daniel if he can take care of his sister, to which he agrees and the babysitter leaves. He takes his chance and goes to pick on his sister, to which she yells at him that she’s going to tell their mother. This angers him as he continues to pick on her and push her around in the tub. She finally gets tired of it and hits him with a rubber duck. This infuriates him and he runs to the kitchen, running back into the bathroom and attacking his sister with the knife in a blind rage. None of the hits were deep enough to kill her, but

Book lover ALERT!  When I travel I love to read and purchase books that are inspired by my new surroundings. Sad topographies has beautiful topographic illustrations of places around the world, with unfortunately sad names and the history behind them. The hidden life of trees speaks for itself and Deny King Biography was suggested by someone who knew I was in Tasmania and suggested this brilliant book which I’m in the middle of reading. It’s about the man Deny King, who spent his life growing up in the remote wilderness of Tasmania, his experiences and life long love and connection to Tasmania.  #books #bookstoread #inspiration #trees #topography #topographyart #biography
1917. március 18-án Budapest, hunyt el Ferenczy Károly festő, a nagybányai művésztelep első nemzedékének kiemelkedő képviselője.  1887-ben ezen a napon született Berény Róbert, a magyar avantgárd mozgalom jeles képviselője. 1905-ben Párizsba került, ahol Matisse és Cézanne művészetének hatása alá került, a magyar Vadak közé tartozott. Hazatérte után a Nyugatban publikált. Festészetére ekkor már az expresszionizmus és a kubizmus volt jellemző. 1909-ben tagja lett a később Nyolcak néven ismertté vált avantgárd csoportnak. A Tanácsköztársaság ideje alatt, a Művészeti Direktórium festő szakosztályának vezetőjeként, plakátokat tervezett, ekkor született legismertebb plakátja, a Fegyverbe! Fegyverbe! 1919 után Németországba emigrált, Berlinben élt 1926-ig.  1980. március 18-án a mexikói Cuernavacába álmában örökre elszenderedett Tamara de Łempicka festőnő, aki egy időben igazi szupersztárnak számított, és talán ma is annak tekinthető. Stílusát leginkább kubista hatásokkal fűszerezett art deco-nak szokás tekinteni. Első nagy kiállítására 1925-ben, Milánóban került sor Emmanuele Castelbarco gróf támogatásával. Hat hónap alatt 28 festményt készített. Sokat dolgozott, de kicsapongásairól is híres volt, jól  ismerte a párizsi művészvilág jeles alakjait, Pablo Picassót, Jean Cocteaut és André Gide-t. 1927-ben elnyerte élete első fődíját a bordói nemzetközi szépművészeti kiállításon a Kizette az erkélyen című alkotásával, mely lányáról készül, akinek egyébként nem volt különösebben jó anyja. Első férje, aki egyébként inkább hozománya reményében vette feleségül ebben az évben elhagyta. 1928-ban Raoul Kuffner von Diószegh báró megbízta, hogy fesse le a szeretőjét. Ebből az következett, hogy szerelem szövődött a férfi és a festőnő között, amiből Kuffner feleségének halála után egy évvel, 1934-ben
