An Abridged History of Baseball Cards and How They Evolved into Collector's Items

Baseball cards actually predate the leagues, and that's just one of the little known facts about them.

Did you know that baseball cards have been around longer than Major League Baseball’s National League (NL), which was founded on February 2nd in 1876 and is the older of the two leagues constituting MLB? The first of these cards actually popped up around the 1860s and looked very different from th...

How Sculptors Mended the Scars of World War I Through The Novel Art of Face Transplants

Ran by sculptors, "'The Tin Noses Shop' was established in the spring of 1916, to help soldiers too disfigured to qualify for before-and-after documentation. 'My work begins where the work of the surgeon is completed,' stated Francis Derwent Wood (1871 - 1926), the founder of the revolutionary program."

Ladd’s skills were in high demand, but even though she eventually, “honed her technique to the point where she could create the casts from images or photos of the men before their disfigurement,” writes Khazan, “of the nearly 3,000 or so French soldiers requiring such masks, Ladd made about ...

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers (2003) | Excerpt from the chapter "Life After Death" |
"Eye caps were invented by a mortician to help dead people keep their eyes shut. There have been times this morning when I wished that someone had outfitted me with a pair of eye caps. I've been standing around, eyelids up, in the basement embalming room of the San Francisco College of Mortuary Science."

Well, not if it is authored by Mary Roach, a well-known American writer who specializes in covering popular science topics with an impeccable sense of humor. Her work comes acros...

"One of his more controversial works is 'Compression 'Ricard' (1943), which consists of colorful pieces taken from different color cars that were then positioned in a hydraulic crushing machine, where the metal articulated itself in the strength and length of the press’s action."

Event Spotlight: "KUSAMA | COSMIC NATURE" now on view at the New York Botanical Garden

"Suffering from acute neurosis, Kasuma began hallucinating 'flashes of light, auras, or dense fields of dots' when she was just 10 years old. She also hallucinated more elaborate scenes, like flowers that spoke and elaborate patterns that enveloped her. To channel and deal with what she saw, she incorporated these visions into her art work throughout the years, including recent material, much of which is defined by these experiences."

#Kusama #NYBG #artexhibit #sculpture #fineart #NYC

Trained in nihonga — a traditional Japanese painting style that emphasizes the use of natural materials — and inspired by American Abstract Impressionism, Kasuma makes art that seems to perfectly blend the two. While her works are often created out of synthetic materials, her subject matter is m...

Music Review: RiverChants by The Sound Collective

A very different and unexpected kind of EP.

#TheSoundCollective #RiverChants #newmusic #musicreview

I’m going to start off by stating that RiverChants by The Silence Collective is NOT for everybody. As a matter of fact, the EP is likely to attract a fairly specific crowd, since its highly experimental music is quite unconventional by almost every standard. Imagine, if you will, tracks full of di...

Anaïs Nin Printed Her Future in New York City: Assimilation and the Letterpress

"In the winter of 1939, Anaïs Nin (1903 — 1977) fled Paris ahead of the German invasion during World War II. She boarded a hydroplane in Lisbon with as much as she could fit into two briefcases — mostly the beginnings of the third volume in her now lauded series of diaries as well as letters from friends she’d never see again. Halfway into the trip, the hydroplane briefly landed in the Azores to refuel before continuing on its journey toward New York City..."

"Narrated by Emma Stone, the five-part mini-series — an offshoot of the Explained series on Netflix — is the brainchild of Adam Cole, the Senior Producer & Art Director of Vox Media.

Event Spotlight: Peek Into the Original Immersive Van Gogh Exhibition Now on View in New York City

New Blog | "Being in a space full of moving art has a profoundly moving effect. You don’t necessarily register the fact that you are in a 75,000 square foot space with 500,000 cubic feet of projections, watching 60,6000 frames of video featuring 90,000,000 pixels. What you register is the emotion. And for an exhibition about an artist that was put together by other artists, that’s the goal."

Paul Cézanne: I could paint for a hundred years

“'Paul may have the genius of a great painter,' wrote Emile Zola (1840 — 1902), Cézanne’s childhood friend and accomplished novelist. 'But he will never possess the genius to become one. He despairs at even the smallest obstacle.' Today, however, we know that Zola was wrong."

Leonardo da Vinci’s Robots and their Modern-Day Influence

"He was also famed for his mapmaking, mathematics skills, and geology knowledge. And yet, some of his most important contributions were not to cartography, architecture, or even painting. Rather, much of da Vinci’s greatest work and influence lies in the world of robotics."

How Claude Monet Disobeyed the City Council, Planted Too Many Flowers & Painted His Water Lilies

"This is beyond the strength of an old man, and yet I want to express what I feel. I have destroyed some of the canvases. I begin once again," wrote Claude Monet about his second water lilies series in 1908.

At the end of his life, the artist created over 250 works for his most famous and celebrated collection.

#Monet #waterlilies #Impressionist #arthistory #artofwater

Intending to build something "for the pleasure of the eye and also for motifs to paint,” he went against the city council and seeded a lot more vegetation than he was legally allowed. Maybe that’s one of the reasons the world-famous series dominated the last 30 years of the artist’s life.

The photos were often gruesome or hard to look at, they made people uncomfortable, and that was the point: “I'd have a picture of fruit or flowers next to a picture of s*xuality next to a portrait of someone socially prominent.
