#FlashArtFact: This Bird's For You, John James Audubon ——————————————-————————
🦅What's the big deal about Audubon? Uh, everything if you are interested in ornithology (birds!), art and naturalism. Audubon transformed the artist-naturalist role and created one of the most impactful books on the birds of North America ever published. —————————————————-——————🐧So he wrote a book fact. Actually, Audubon wrote THE book for his time: The Birds of America, which completely revolutionized ornithological illustration. No one before him had portrayed birds at life-size, in action, surrounded by their natural habitat. Working over a period of 19 years to depict every avian species in America, Audubon created 435 watercolors, all of which are held in the collection of The New-York Historical Society. ————————————————-———————-🐦He revolutionized watercolor fact. In The Birds of America, the watercolors were printed as hand-colored lithographs. In the process, the artist developed innovative watercolor methods. According to Roberta J.M. Olson, curator of Drawings at The New-York Historical Society, "Audubon experimented with novel techniques in modeling, collaging and mixing media — including metallic pigments — and is considered America’s first great watercolorist.” —————————————————-—————-🐤Gone but not forgotten fact. Audubon painted the only parrot species native to the U.S., the Carolina parakeet. It became extinct less than 100 years after Audubon portrayed it.————————————————————————
🐣Look alive fact. Because of Audubon’s dedication to scientific observation and the experimental use of watercolor, his birds practically fly off the page. His techniques with color and line represent the shimmering iridescence and texture of the plumage of the birds he observed.

Hokusai is the first recorded artist to use the term 'Manga'.
The word manga roughly means random drawings, and the term is now more commonly associated with a type of Japanese comic that conforms to a style developed in Japan in the late 19th Century.

Time for a late afternoon art history mini lesson! Swipe through for a primer on Die Brücke, a bohemian collective of artists formed in 1905 in staunch opposition to the established bourgeois social order of Germany. Their art, which paved the way for German Expressionism, confronted feelings of alienation from the modern world by going back to the basics, and exploring “primitive art styles.” ·

A SHIP TO THE CONSTELLATION III
By Bidisha Sarkar @the.nebula.traveller @bleeding_colors_artpoetry

Her: Are we there?? Him: Yes. The constellation that looks like your face. The Aurora Borealis.. Seems like.. Seems like they make your constellation's flowing hair.. Her: *takes his hand, mouth wide open.. In awe*

Him: *puts his arm around her, staring at his "Universe" as she stares at hers* *She's home*

The ship can rest a while.
The fireflies still haven't left her.
And they have befriended him too.

👨‍🎨 Edvard Munch was born on December 12, 1863 in Ekely, Norway.⠀
🎨 He was an Expressionist, an artist who expresses strong feelings through colours and bold brush-strokes in his paintings. ⠀
😱 Munch’s most famous painting is called ‘The Scream’. ⠀

🤫 But did you know that:⠀

🎨 There are 5 separate versions of ‘The Scream’. ⠀
They are all different and are created with tempera, crayon on cardboard, with pastels, one is a black and white lithograph. ⠀

🏞 Munch's intended name for these variants was ‘The Scream of Nature’.⠀

🖼 The final version of ‘The Scream’, done in 1910 by Munch, was stolen in 2004 and recovered in 2006.⠀

🏛 You will be surprised but it has already been stolen before. In 1994, bandits placed a ladder up to the window of the National Gallery in Oslo, slunk inside, and made off with ‘The Scream’. ⠀
😮 They were so pleased with the ease of this crime that they added insult to robbery, leaving a note that read, "Thanks for the poor security." Thankfully, the painting was recovered within three months. ⠀

📣 How many more interesting facts do you know about the painting? ⠀

ART FACT OF THE DAY!
ON MAY 19, 1960, the French Patent Office issued patent number 63471, protecting the applicant’s rights in connection with the invention of IKB.
It was issued to French artist, Yves Klein, for the invention of a color.

Klein created and patented the ultramarine color known as International Klein Blue or IKB. He invented the paint with the help of a chemical retailer by suspending pure, dry pigment in crystal-clear synthetic resin and compatible solvents (ether and petroleum). Unlike traditional binders, the new colorless carrier did not dull the individual particles of pigment, but left them with their original brightness and intensity.
It was this process for which he was granted a patent.
The novel medium was versatile enough to be brushed, sprayed, rolled, or even thickened and built up on a surface. It quickly dried to a fragile-looking but durable matte finish that, like velvet, offered a plush, light-absorbent surface that seemed to dissolve into a dark, glowing liquid depth.
