Milestones

The French painter and engraver Hubert Gravelot (Bourguignon) was born in Paris
He was an important book illustrator and worked in an individual and charming Rococo style. He ran a drawing school in London from 1732 to 1735 and is perhaps best known for his engravings of Richardson's "Pamela", 1742. -1699

The English dramatist and architect Sir John Vanbrugh, died in London
He was the most important country-house designer in England at the beginning of the 18th century and a leading figure in the English Baroque. His dramatic sense and his enthusiasm for large buildings, seen especially at Blenheim Palace and Eastbury, earned him a reputation for extravagance, even megalomania, but he understood and exploited the difference between size and scale in architecture. -1726

The Italian architect and archeologist Pietro Bianchi was born in Lugano
He was a superintendent at the excavation of the Coliseum between 1810 and 1814, during which time he published a book on his findings. King Ferdinand I commissioned him to design the layout of the Largo de Palazzo, now the Piazza del Plebiscito. -1787

The Spanish painter Josè Elbo was born
He studied in Madrid and was elected an "Académico de mèrito" of the Real Academia de San Fernando, to which he bequeathed his finest work, "Madrid Bull-ring on the Day of a Bull-fight". His work is highly detailed in its finish, reflecting his Neo-classical training. -1804

The German painter and designer Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld, who was one of the most important figures of the German Nazarene movement, was born in Leipzig, Saxony
He was inspired by early Renaissance art and the works of Albrecht Dürer. His oil paintings are characterized by a precise linearity, clear bright colors and symbolic detail. He designed the windows at St. Paul's Cathedral, London. -1804

Eugen Gugel the German architect and teacher was born in Bergzabern, Bavaria
He was the first teacher of the history of architecture course at the Delft Polytechnic. He trained many architects in the Renaissance Revival style and the Dutch Renaissance, including Edoard Jean Niermans, Jacob F. Klinkhamer, and W.C. Metzelaar. He himself did not design many buildings because of his many activities. -1832

The Russian painter and printmaker who was a friend of Vasily Kandinsky's, Alexei Jawlensky, was born in Torzhok, Russia
He first exhibited in Paris with the Fauves at the Salon d'Automne of 1905 with works characterized by simplified forms, flat areas of color and heavy black outlines. "Village in Bayern", 1907 reflects his approach to Van Gogh's technique and subject matter. -1864

The French painter and draughtsman Albert Marquet was born in Bordeaux
In Paris he met Henri Matisse with whom he formed a lasting friendship and with whom he studied from 1894 to 1898 at the Ecole des Beaux Arts with Gustave Moreau. In the Louvre, Marquet made copies after Poussin, Velazquez, Claude Lorrain and particularly Chardin. He used to simplify his subjects into broad areas of color. -1875

Oleksandr Bohomazov was born in Yamboi
The Ukranian painter worked in the studios of Fyodor Rerberg and Konstantin Yuon in Moscow and was influenced by Symbolism. However, he later became involved in the Futurist movement. A synthesis of his figurative and Futurist art abilities can be seen in "Sawyers" at the Kiev Museum in Ukraine. -1880

The Russian painter Pavel (Andreyevich) Mansurov was born
His interest in painting began after his encounters with Kazimir Malevich and Visdimir Tatlin, in whose studio he worked. He was drawn to the connections between art and natural form. Later in his career he experimented with textile designs, but he always returned to his experimental studies of abstracts, like "Painting", 1965, at the Pompidou Center in Paris. -1896

The painter Lazar Licenoski was born
He received his specialization for wall painting in Paris and then moved to Belgrade where he became a member of the Oblik group. Later in his life he abandoned portraiture and social issue subject matters that he normally painted and specialized in the Macedonian landscape. -1901

The Haitian sculptor and architect Albert Mangones was born in Port-au-Prince
He studied at Cornell University and was influenced by Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright. His work is characterized by simple geometrical lines and large openings that integrate the structure with the environment. He frequently used bricks and cobblestones in his designs. The Habitation Leclerc Hotel, 1974, Port-au-Prince is one of his best creations. -1917

The exhibition "Territory" opened at the Phoenix Gallery in Brighton, England
The Brighton-based painters and sculptors included in this show represented in their work a range of different approaches to landscape. A bold fluidity in the handling of pigment combined with a predilection for intense color characterized many of the works, evoking the art of Cézanne. -1996

An exhibition on the work of Humphrey Cole was on view at the British Museum in London
He was Master of the Mint under Elizabeth and the first great English instrument-maker. He equipped Frobisher's first expedition and engraved a map of Palestine for the Bishop's Bible of 1572. There are 26 signed instruments surviving, including the Gunner's rule, six of them in the British Museum's collection. They were shown along with other collections and coins. In this exhibition science became art. -1998

An exhibition on the work of Richard Deacon titled "New World Order", was on view at the Tate Liverpool
The exhibit was his most substantial British exhibition for a decade, this outstanding survey concentrated largely on unshown sculpture. -1999

The Musée d'Orsay in Paris had recently opened the exhibit titled "Photographs of the Paris Commune"
The Paris Commune was the first major event in French history to be the object of a large-scale photographic rendering and, like the American Civil War; it engendered a profusion of pictures. Action reports, reconstructions and photomontages offered diverse viewpoints, sometimes contradictory or partisan. -2000
