'Sargent and Fashion' opens at Tate Britain
LONDON.- Tate Britain opened a major exhibition dedicated to the great portrait painter John Singer Sargent (1856-1925). It reveals Sargents ground-breaking role as a stylist, fashioning the image his sitters presented to the world through sartorial choices. Staged in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the exhibition features 60 works, including rare loans as well as works drawn from Tate and MFAs extensive collections. These are shown alongside more than a dozen period dresses and accessories, many of which were worn by his sitters. Several of these garments have been reunited for the first time with Sargents portraits of their wearers, offering a fresh perspective on the most celebrated portraitist of his generation and the society in which he worked.

New Yorkers mourn Flaco, the owl they could all look up to
NEW YORK, NY.- Pjetar Nikac has been the superintendent at 267 W. 89th St., an eight-story apartment building near Riverside Drive, for 30 years. What happened there Friday made it a day he wouldnt forget. Nikac was returning from a trip to the store around 5 p.m. when he noticed an object on the ground in the buildings courtyard space. I thought it was a rock, he said. I came closer and I saw: owl. Nikac knew immediately that it was not just any owl, but Flaco, the Eurasian eagle-owl who just three weeks ago passed the one-year mark of living in the relative wilds of Manhattan after leaving the Central Park Zoo. Someone had cut open the mesh on his enclosure in an act of vandalism that remains unsolved. Now, Flaco had apparently crashed into the building. Although he was still alive when Nikac found him and, with Alan Drogin, ... More
35 hours for a 10-second clip: The art of the TikTok trick shot
NEW YORK, NY.- There are nights when Michael Shields lies awake next to his wife and thinks about pingpong balls. He muses on their arcs and speeds, the ways they bounce off a wooden plank or roll down a Hot Wheels track. In the mornings he often turns his visions into reality, and millions tune in to watch. Shields, 33, is a creator of trick shots, among the more popular armchair athletes who seek out ever more elaborate and challenging ways to, for example, sink a pingpong ball in a cup or land a CD in a disc tray after bouncing it off three basketballs. If, as in Shields case, the trick shots garner enough views on social media, talent agents begin to call, and money and corporate partnerships help to keep new content coming. For one of his most popular shots of 2023, Shields, who posts under the account name Thatll ... More

On a day like today, French painter and theorist Charles Le Brun was born
February 24, 1619. Charles Le Brun (24 February 1619 - 22 February 1690) was a French painter, art theorist, interior decorator and a director of several art schools of his time. As court painter to Louis XIV, who declared him "the greatest French artist of all time", he was a dominant figure in 17th-century French art and much influenced by Nicolas Poussin.
