“George Jules Taylor” was painted by #BarkleyHendricks in 1972 and encapsulates 70s fashion, pop culture, & the assertion of Black identity. The painting’s main subject, Jules, was Hendricks’ lifelong friend and muse who he met while the two were enrolled at Yale 🎨 https://t.co/iraH4RuK91

(1/2) This photolithograph shows Chief Severo, leader of the Caputa band of the Southern Ute tribe, with his family. Taken in 1885 by the Detroit Publishing Co, the image misspelled the Chief & captain of Indian Police in its original inscription, listing him as “Chief Sevara” https://t.co/5ni8yV2IoI

Quoted @lafemmefollette

There is a nice summer squash pureed soup I know well, with roasted asparagus to start and tomato wedges with salt, pepper, & oil to finish. *asceticism https://t.co/6ZgwHcAzOV

If you were to make a Thanksgiving meal out of these ingredients alone, what would you create? 🍅

Best way to wind down after a long day?👇 By enjoying this much needed classical virtual performance by Duo Sonidos as they perform “Nana” and “Polo,” two of the great works by Spanish composer Manuel de Falla (1876–1946). ✨For the full effect: https://t.co/qNVz3p8DVh https://t.co/KSDmlbsVg9

(1/2) 🔍Yet, an even closer look reveals a deep connection to the artist’s personal experience. 

According to Chagall, this scene also references his own past: smuggled out of Nazi-occupied France during World War II, the Jewish artist found safe haven in New York. https://t.co/EvXCltx0sc

(1/1) In 1968, artist Marc Chagall designed a large-scale mural, “Orphée,” depicting the colorful, layered narratives loosely drawn from Greek mythology. At the center, Orpheus charms animals with his lute, alongside the Three Graces and the winged stallion Pegasus. https://t.co/yEdgxdHxeS
