Happy #internationalcatday! Konstantin Makovsky's "Russian Beauty with Cat" (1865) is a favorite of many who visit the Museum. These two #beauties can be found in Gallery 4. #joslynartmuseum

A study of dramatic beauty and unexpected tranquility in an undistinguished urban landscape, "Sunset, West Twenty-third Street" (1906) displays John Sloan's ability early in his career to transform a utilitarian setting into a more sublime vista. Although it could easily be understood as an image of an anonymous woman distracted from her laundry, the figure represented is the artist's wife, Dolly, on the rooftop of the building that housed his studio. Sloan was born #onthisday in 1871 and was a leading member of the Ashcan School. This painting is part of the Museum’s permanent collection, a 25th Anniversary purchase, and is currently on view in Gallery 9.

Happy birthday to Edgar Degas, who was born #onthisday in 1834! Degas began his career as a painter of historical scenes but then shifted his interest to contemporary life in Paris, especially that of the theatre and the street café. Best known as a painter, Degas worked with photography and printmaking as well as with sculpture, and there was arguably no more influential artist in the nineteenth century. His sculpture, "Little Dancer," is a Museum visitor favorite and can be found on view in Gallery 5.

A sunny sculpture for a sunny day in the Museum's gardens. “Yellow Ascending” is an outstanding example of George Sugarman's ability to translate his love of movement, color, and structure into a monumental metal sculpture. The piece is 30 feet tall and weighs 16,000 pounds and can be found in the Discovery Garden.

Flemish artist Anthony van Dyck, court painter to Charles I, portrayed his subjects with the elegance and virtuosity of Italian Renaissance painters, providing prestige and distinction to court culture of the period. In this work, the widowed Lady Dacre holds a double-headed rose that signifies both lost and future love in the fading and blooming blossoms.
