The Italian painter Giuliano Bugiardini was born in Florence
He is a representative of the late Florentine Renaissance, and mainly painted biblical themes and portraits. He worked for a time in Rome where he assisted Michelangelo in the painting of the Sistine Chapel. -1475

Donato Creti, an Italian painter and draughtsman, died in Bologna
His activity was almost wholly confined to Bologna, where he painted decorative frescoes, altarpieces and easel pictures for private collectors.

Painter Anee-Louis Girodet-Trioson was born in Montargis, France
His works exemplify the first phase of the Romantic Movement in French art. He won the Prix de Rome (1789) for his "Joseph Recognized by His Brothers", which was influenced by the cold, sober Neoclassicism of his teacher, Jacques-Louis David. His painting "The Sleep of Endymion" is at the Louvre Museum. -1767

The Austrian painter Albin Egger-Lienz was born in Striebach
He was a teacher at Weimar and mainly painted historical subjects in the style of Defregger. He was inspired by Hodler and after 1902 dedicated himself to making monumental pieces based on themes from the life of Tirol. -1868

Alfonso Daniel Castelao, a Spanish painter, caricaturist, writer and politician, was born in Rianjo, La Coruña
He presented his first one-man exhibition in Orense in 1912, exhibiting in Madrid in the same year. Castelao was visiting the USA when the Civil War ended and traveled from there to Buenos Aires, where he painted a series of mythological paintings in 1940, and gouaches, steeped in folkloric and religious subject-matter, and Galician atmosphere, in 1942. -1886

The American painter Barnett Newman was born in New York City
He was one of the Abstract Expressionist painters who took an emotional approach to the conception and execution of their works. His style was simple and based on color. In 1966 his series of 14 paintings called "Stations of the Cross" was exhibited at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. -1905

The American sculptor, draughtsman, printmaker, performance artist and writer of Swedish descent, Claes Oldenburg was born in Stockholm
He lived in Chicago but then moved to New York in 1956. Oldenburg became part of a group of artists who challenged Abstract Expressionism by modifying its thickly impastoed paint with figurative images and found objects. -1929

Patrick Caulfield, an English painter and printmaker, was born in London
In the early 1960s Caulfield's paintings were characterized by flat images of objects paired with angular geometric devices or isolated against unmodulated areas of color. In "Portrait of Juan Gris" Caulfield paid tribute to the Cubist painter, whose work, with that of other early modernists such as Léger and Magritte, set the terms for the stylization and formal rigor of his own still-lifes, landscapes and interiors. "Inside a Weekend Cabin" was one of the earliest of a series of interiors atmospherically suffused with a single enveloping color. -1936

The sculpture "The Women in the Garden" by Pablo Picasso, made in homage to his friend the poet Guillaume Apollinaire, was permanently placed in the Queen Sofia Art Center Collection
It is worth $5.6 million and the fruit of a joint project between Picasso and the sculptor Julio González. -1996

An exhibition featuring the early works of Thomas Gainsborough opened at the National Gallery in London
The exhibition was based on the National Gallery's outstanding collection of Gainsborough's early work as a portraitist and painter of landscapes of his native Suffolk. There were also loans from the Louvre, from the artist's family and from other British collectors. -1997

Karin Jonzen, a British sculptor, died at 83
She was born on December 22, 1914. As a child, Karin Jonzen produced so many comic drawings that her father, scenting a potential Punch cartoonist, sent her to the Slade School of Art, where she won prizes for both sculpture and painting. In 1939 she won the Prix de Rome with a somewhat Gothic Pietà. During the Second World War she met the painter Basil Jonzen, and married him, with Victor Pasmore as best man. Her portraits include studies of Dame Ninette de Valois, Lord Constantine and Samuel Pepys. The spiritual was always important to her, and her apparently naturalistic figures are notable for their inner life. -1998

A Goya drawing was put on auction at Sotheby's
Although it was a small sketch, only 19.2 by 15.5 centimeters, it became the attraction of the night in New York. The auction started at $400,000 to $600,000 dollars, but an interested collector started out at $937,500, equaling a set record for another Goya drawing. -2000
