Your eyes are not deceiving you. This is an ancient hairnet made around 220 B.C. in Hellenistic Egypt.

It's World Calligraphy Day 🖊 In the 1500s, as printing became popular for producing books, intellectuals valued the inventiveness and aesthetic qualities of writing. Bocskay created "Model Book of Calligraphy" to demonstrate his mastery of an immense range of writing styles and 30 years later Hoefnagel illuminated Bocskay's book with fruit, flowers and insects 🍐🌷🐜

"Mira calligraphiae monumenta", 1561-1596, Joris Hoefnagel and Georg Bocskay. Tempera colors, watercolors, gold and silver paint, and ink on parchment and paper bound between pasteboard covered with red morocco.

#VanGogh of the Day: Portrait of a Peasant (Patience Escalier), August 1888. Oil on canvas, 64.1 x 54.6 cm. Norton Simon Museum, Pasadena, California.
.
When Vincent van Gogh moved to the Provençal town of Arles in 1888, he revived an early interest in the depiction of rural laborers. Writing to his brother Theo, he described one of his models, a gardener named Patience Escalier, as "a sort of man with a hoe" – a reference to Jean-François Millet's 1860-62 painting of the same name. But in a striking departure from Millet, Van Gogh rendered his subject with the bright colors and loose, expressive brushwork that we now associate with the artist's mature style.

"It is indeed true," wrote Albrecht Dürer, "that art is omnipresent in nature, and the true artist is he who can bring it out." The Stag Beetle is one of Dürer's most influential and most copied nature studies. Singling out a beetle as the focal point of a work of art was unprecedented in 1505, when most of Dürer's contemporaries believed that insects were the lowest of creatures.

Stag Beetle, 1505, Albrecht Durer. Watercolor and gouache; upper left corner of paper added, with tip of left antenna painted in by a later hand.

Getty Museum, Los Angeles. I know that lot of the travelers don't really like museums and/or galleries, but this place is totally worth seeing. Even just for the scenery. Do you like museums? .
