Milestones

Hans Schor, an Austrian painter and designer, died in Innsbruck
Schor painted in both fresco and oils, producing portraits, panel paintings and altarpieces. His ceiling frescoes in the Seekapelle, Seefeld, painted soon after 1628; show a figure style influenced by the late Mannerist circle of painters around Friedrich Sustris in Munich. His small oil paintings on copper of 1652-3 are early Tyrolean examples of the Baroque. -1674

Martin Schmid, a Swiss architect and musician, active in Bolivia died
In 1731 he organized the craft workshops in the mission of S Javier and began the construction of the church there. Like all the churches in that region, it is a timber structure with a rectangular ground plan and a pitched roof. Schmid constructed the churches of S Rafael (1749-53) and Concepción (1768), and he was responsible for the retable in the church at St Miguel. His decorative style was derived from the Bavarian Baroque and Rococo. -1772

Emile Trélat, a French architect, teacher and writer, was born
In 1871 Trélat was appointed chief architect of the Seine Departments and in the 1880s he was a regular contributor to congress on hygiene in buildings, discussing in particular the lighting, heating and ventilation of housing. -1821

Emile Chatrousse, a French sculptor and writer, was born in Paris
In 1853 he exhibited a plaster group of "Queen Hortense and her Son Louis Napoleon", which brought him a commission from Louis Napoleon, by then Napoleon III, for a marble of the same group. This was exhibited in 1855 at the Exposition Universelle, Paris. He exhibited works with religious and historical subjects: some of these, such as "Resignation", are characterized by a non-academic, morbid expressiveness. -1829

Ejler Bille, a Danish sculptor, painter and writer, was born in Odder, near Arhus
His originality was clearly apparent in his early sculptures, which often used animals as subjects, like "Marten" and "Walking Form". Bille made many trips to Bali and drew much inspiration from Balinese art for his sculpture and paintings. -1910

It was reported that some 900 works of art that the Nazis took from France during World War II would be displayed in four Paris museums in the hope that their owners claimed them
The works, including paintings by Picasso and Matisse, were returned form Germany after the war. -1997

The show of the Citibank Private Bank Photography Prize, 1998, opened at the Photographers' Gallery, in London
A sense of sadness was the main mood of the photographs in this year's Citibank Private Bank Photography Prize; an annual competition in its second year that is open to any nominee whose work has been displayed or printed in Britain. Although the subjects and techniques of the five photographers on the shortlist for the £10,000 prize were dissimilar, their work had in common a wistful solemnity, a ghostly, millennial mood. -1998

It was reported that scientists from the renowned conservation center of the National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside (NMGM).developed a technique for "growing" marble that would revolutionize the restoration of sculpture
With this invention, art surgeons could enable the Venus di Milo to grow back her arms, or the British Museum's reclining Dionysus to find his feet and hands again. The technique, which is easily applied, can replicate with precision the original stone. With this, the art world could reproduce entire copies of sculptures. -1999

The Oakland Museum of California just opened the exhibit titled "Women of Taste: A Collaboration Celebrating Quilt Artists and Chefs"
The exhibit showed the creations of quilt artists inspired by chefs. From modern abstraction to pictorial to traditional, the 50 quilts in the exhibition displayed a full range of artistic responses to a subject dear to all of our hearts (and stomachs). Cooking and sewing, once dismissed as "women's work," were celebrated as a means of women's empowerment. In this exhibition 50 quilts were on display. -2000
