Architecture

In 1943, Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned to design a building to house the Museum of Non-Objective Painting, which had been established by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in 1939. In a letter dated June 1, 1943, Hilla Rebay, the curator of the foundation and director of the museum, instructed Wright, “I want a temple of spirit, a monument!” See more here (click!)

Artists with Animals 1 – Dogs

A Facebook oldalamon [Jadea Art on Facebook] indítottam egy sorozatot, ahol olyan felvételeket gyűjtöttem össze és osztottam meg napról napra, amelyeken művészek láthatók állatokkal. Többnyire házi kedvenceikkel. Természetesen a kutya az egyik leggyakrabban előforduló társaság a művészek esetében is. Így ez az első Artist with Animals (Művészek állatokkal) bejegyzésem a híres alkotókat kutyáikkal bemutató képekből válogat. Hamarosan jönnek a cicák és egyéb állatfajták is.

Mai posztommal nem csak a honlapom közelgő 1 éves születésnapját ünneplem, de azt az örömteli eseményt is, hogy tegnap elértük a 16.000 látogatót. Köszönöm mindenkinek az eddigi figyelmet és számítok Rátok a jövőben is.
