Bletchley Signal Box, 1965
This week’s #MuseumMonday celebrates three Pre-Raphaelite exhibitions to see, inspired by ‘Lowry & the Pre-Raphaelites’ @the_lowry Salford, until 24th February, exploring Lowry’s passion for the Pre-Raphaelites, including works by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown and Edward Burne-Jones (whose retrospective you can currently see @Tate Britain until 24th February). Lowry admired paintings by the Pre-Raphaelites as a young man, attending major Manchester exhibitions in 1911 and 1920, as well as seeing Madox Brown’s murals in Manchester Town Hall. Following his own success as an artist, he began to buy their work, in particular portraits by Rossetti whose ‘fascination for his models is reflected by Lowry’s repeated representations of the mysterious Ann’. The exhibition features works formerly owned by Lowry, as well as some of his favourite pictures in public and private collections. Rossetti’s, ‘The First Madness of Ophelia’ 1864, was a picture Lowry knew well in Oldham Art Gallery’s collection and he joked with the curator about the possibility of buying it. Rossetti’s, ‘The Bower Meadow’, 1872, is the painting Lowry ‘wished endlessly and, of course, hopelessly’ to own. An exhibition inspired by Dante Gabriel’s talented sister, ‘Christina Rossetti: Vision & Verse’, is currently on view @WattsGallery until 17th March 2019. Celebrating the Victorian poet’s connection with visual art, this exhibition includes portraits of Rossetti (created by her Pre-Raphaelite artist-brother Dante Gabriel) and images inspired by her writing, as well as little known drawings by the poet herself. Rossetti studied art at the North London Drawing School in the early 1850s. See more works by Pre-Raphaelite fan, LS Lowry, including ‘Lytham Pier’ 1945 and ‘Figures with a dog’ 1957 at https://www.richardgreen.com/artist/Laurence-Stephen-Lowry/

Armando – Der Kopf 1991 XL Lithograph (160cm x 120cm) #art #lithograph #armando #postwar #expressionism #minimalism
No-sew stainless steel fowl lacer -- I remember seeing these as a child in the 1950s. They still look scary...like some kind of holiday torture devices. Does anybody still use these? If so, why were they posted as antiques? If they were really necessary, how are we managing to do without them now?I'm suspicious that these were just many things postWW2 homemakers were supposed to buy & use to stay busy at home in their kitchens in the 1950s -- go ahead, call me skeptical! (& a feminist) ...Thanksryspotantiques for posting this image
Illustrator David Stone Martin was one of the most prolific and influential #graphic #designers of the #postwar era, creating over 400 #album #covers . Much of his work spotlighted #jazz , with his #signature hand-drawn, calligraphic line perfectly capturing the energy and #spontaneity of the idiom. Born David Livingstone Martin in #Chicago in #1913 , he later studied at the #ArtInstituteofChicago and began his #career as an assistant to the social realist painter Ben Shahn, designing murals during the 1933 World's Fair. Martin spent the remainder of the decade as art director of the Tennessee Valley Authority, and served during #WorldWarII as an artist/correspondent for Life #magazine . After returning to the #U .S. he mounted a career as a freelance artist, landing advertising gigs for clients including the Disc Company of America, CBS Television, and Lincoln Center; in #nubesyclaros #naturalnight 1948, he also began teaching at the Brooklyn Museum School of Art, followed in 1950 by a year at New York City's Workshop School of Advertising and Editorial Art. Martin entered #music illustration through his longtime friendship with producer Norman Granz, designing label art for Granz's Verve, Norgran, Clef, and Down Home imprints as well as hundreds of now-classic cover paintings for acts including Count Basie, Art Tatum, Gene Krupa, and Lionel Hampton. Martin also created a series of designs for the pianist #MaryLouWilliams with whom he enjoyed a torrid #affair . Martin's work has exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and others. He died of pneumonia in #NewLondon , CT, on March 6, 1992. #thiswasgraphicdesign

We've read a few great novellas this year (we love the format), and our #PourOfTheWeek —Rachel Autumn Deering's HUSK—had all the makings of a great one. Deering sets an intriguing scene: A soldier newly returned to his childhood home, his parents and grandparents now dead. The dialogue cracks with sincerity and realism, and Deering's protagonist, Kevin, is well-written as the Everyman. Through the first 80 pages, Deering's tale brims with creepy promise, but its final few pages never deliver on that promise. Abrupt and unclear (even for people like us that love an open-ended conclusion), #HUSK ultimately amounts to a decent yarn that could have been so much more had Deering allowed her tale to breathe for another 100 pages. That said, Deering is crafty enough with her prose that we'll keep an eye out for her follow ups. #pourvida #amreading #halloween #creepy #spooky #rachelautumndeering #horror #postwar

Contract signed and couldn’t be more excited for my client who will finally be able to call this home. After 9 months of searching for the right apartment, then finally finding what we wanted and listening to me to act fast and competitively. Thankfully we did, and proof that first impressions are everything #contractsigned #patience #strikefast #firsthome
The Cat with a Guinea to Spend by E.M.Hatt, Pictures by Leslie Wood. Published by Faber and Faber Ltd. 24 Russel Square London WC1 in 1947. Inside the book on the fly sheet it is written; ‘The illustrations have been drawn direct to the lithographic plate by the artist’. This is the inside double illustration; paper on the hard back with textile covering. 2 colours again, creating a pattern, an artists approach to an illustrative brief. Leslie Wood was able to adapt his skills and talents to whatever was required of the brief. Again, simply delightful. #lesliewood #lesliewoodartwork #illustration #illustrator #faberandfaber #1947 #book #designer #craft #manchestercollegeofart #dustjackets #bookdesign #design #artist #hardback #1940sartwork #postwar #lithograph #ink #dustjacket #childrensillustrator #picturebooks #publishing #storybook

Gutai is commonly known as Japan’s most significant avant-garde collective from the post-war era for its experimental approach to art. According to the Gutai Manifesto: "It is our desire to embody the fact that our spirit is free. It is also our hope that no restrictions will be placed on the desire to experience fresh sensations through every forms of expression." From 23 Nov, @whitestonegallery.official will present group exhibition “GUTAI-JIN in Hong Kong”. Join us in meeting the artist Shuji Mukai on 23 Nov from 5pm to 6pm to find out more about Gutai and its core spirit. #GutaiJin  #Gutai  #Whitestone  #Japan  #Postwar  #Gallery  #Arts #HongKongArt  #HQueens

Brunel University Lecture Block: John Heywood; 1965-66. Classic brutal beast, featuring in A Clockwork Orange. Sad to say, it makes me think of the troop carrier things in Starwars (the first one) more than anything else (AT-ATs, the internet (honest) tells me).

To Jean-Luc Godard, 1960s Paris was a political stage, a confused space utilizing a montage technique of societal fragmentation, contrast and contradiction on the one hand, while being a reservoir for American cultural invasion on the other A new post on Godard's perception of modern Paris through his profession as a filmmaker....or better yet, a political filmmaker Article "Godard: The Artist, The Political and the Parisian" Link in Bio Feel free to pour in your comments, feedback, thoughts or any interesting ideas #jeanlucgodard #frenchnewwave #frenchcinema #france #postwar #ww2 #charlesdegaulle #film #cinema #movies #frenchfilms #fortheloveoffilms #fortheloveofcinema #fortheloveofmovies #paris #modernparis #modernism #modernity #modernsociety #modernarchitecture #city #society #alphaville #gaze #nakedwoman #prostitution #machine #nouvellevague #filmmaker

My project “Reclamation” highlights those organisations committed to significant social impact, empowering women to take charge of their lives through dignified and purposeful employment. With particular concentration on NGOs and implementation of fair-trade employment models, it examines the deployment of craft activities such as knitting and crochet. The project investigates two singularly different locations appreciably linked by identical principles - to restore women to their rightful status. I have already posted some of the images from Kenana Knitters organisation. Now, I would like to share photographs from the second location Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. @udruzene_handknitting is an association utilising the act of knitting to confront the traumas of war. It seeks the reintegration of women back into society through acts of economic and physiological empowerment. . . . . #womenempowerment #collaboration #sarajevobosnia #knitting #environmentalportrait #documentaryphotography #girlpower #photoart #photooftheday #postwar #sarajevo #balcans #visualculture #udruzene #ngo #socialimpact #millenium_images #lensculture #travelphotography #importantissues #worldpressphoto #storytelling #photodocumentary #reportage #photostory #thoughtprovoking #warscars #diptych #diptychmood #aftermath
