"A sexual appetite as intrepid as his plans to raze Paris." Le Corbusier (1887 – 1965), was a Swiss-French architect, designer, painter, urban planner, writer, and one of the pioneers of what is now called modern architecture. He was born in Switzerland. His career spanned five decades; he constructed buildings in Europe, Japan, India, and birth and South America.

Le Corbusier moved to Paris definitively in 1917 and began his own architectural practice with his cousin, Pierre Jeanneret (1896–1967), a partnership that would last until the 1950s, with an interruption in the World War II years.

In 1918, Le Corbusier met the Cubist painter Amédée Ozenfant, in whom he recognised a kindred spirit. Ozenfant encouraged him to paint, and the two began a period of collaboration. Rejecting Cubism as irrational and "romantic", the pair jointly published their manifesto, Après le cubisme and established a new artistic movement, Purism. Ozenfant and Le Corbusier began writing for a new journal, L'Esprit Nouveau, and promoted with energy and imagination his ideas of architecture.

In the first issue of the journal, in 1920, Charles-Edouard Jeanneret adopted Le Corbusier (an altered form of his maternal grandfather's name, Lecorbésier) as a pseudonym, reflecting his belief that anyone could reinvent themselves. Adopting a single name to identify oneself was in vogue by artists in many fields during that era, especially in Paris.

Between 1918 and 1922, Le Corbusier did not build anything, concentrating his efforts on Purist theory and painting. In 1922, he and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret opened a studio in Paris at 35 rue de Sèvres.

On July 17, 2016, seventeen projects by Le Corbusier in seven countries were inscribed in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites as "an Outstanding Contribution to the Modern Movement". #hornyforart #MMoA

Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock

In a time when neither artist was a darling of critics or gallery systems, Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock were particularly copacetic.
Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock established a relationship with one another in 1942 after they both exhibited at the McMillen Gallery. Krasner was intrigued by his work and the fact she did not know who he was since she knew many abstract painters in New York. She went to his apartment to meet him. By 1945, they moved to The Springs on the outskirts of East Hampton. In the summer of that year, they got married in a church with two witnesses present.

While the two lived in the farmhouse in The Springs, they both continued creating art. They worked in separate studio spaces on their property. Krasner worked in an upstairs bedroom in the house while Pollock worked in the barn in their backyard. When they were not working, the two spent their time cooking, baking, gardening, keeping the house organized, and entertaining friends.

Lee Krasner was an ambitious and important artist in New York City during Abstract Expressionism's heyday, Krasner's own career often was compromised by her role as supportive wife to Jackson Pollock, arguably the most significant postwar American painter, as well as by the male-dominated art world.

By 1956, their relationship became strained as they faced certain issues. Pollock had begun struggling with his alcoholism again and was partaking in an extramarital affair with Ruth Kligman. Krasner left in the summertime to visit friends in Europe but had to quickly return when Pollock died in a car crash while she was away.

The house and studio they shared in East Hampton, New York is now a museum.

"Painting.. we do not talk about it, we do not analyse it, we feel it." ~ Bernard Buffet

Bernard Buffet & Annabel

Bernard Buffet (1928 – 1999) was a French painter of Expressionism and a member of the anti-abstract art group "L'homme Témoin" (the Witness-Man). Sustained by the picture-dealer Maurice Garnier, Buffet produced religious pieces, landscapes, portraits and still-lifes. In 1946, he had his first painting shown, a self-portrait, at the Salon des Moins de Trente Ans at the Galerie Beaux-Arts. He had at least one major exhibition every year.
In 1955, he was awarded first prize by the magazine Connaissance des arts, which named the 10 best post-war artists. In 1958, at the age of 30, the first retrospective of his work was held at the Galerie Charpentier.

Annabel Schwob settles in Paris in the early 1950s where she becomes a model and rapidly turns into one of Saint-Germain-des Prés’ principal figures.
She meets the renowned painter, Bernard Buffet in 1958, in Saint-Tropez where they promptly get married. The muse of her husband, she also leads an artistic career, singing and writing, while the couple turbulently falls into the spiral of alcoholism.
Annabel and Bernard Buffet had incarnated Paris’ avant-garde with a troubled yet passionate relationship that made no tabous of sexual ambiguity as Bernard Buffet had been in a relationship with Pierre Bergé. Pierre Bergé was Buffet's live-in lover until Bergé left Buffet for Yves Saint Laurent just before Buffet meets Annabel, who had seduced him because of her androgynous airs.
Buffet created more than 8,000 paintings and many prints as well.

When Bernard Buffet is ill with Parkinson's disease in 1999, he is incapable of painting and decides to commit suicide, leaving his devastated wife who had already been traumatized by her parents’ suicides in her childhood. Police said that Buffet died around 4 p.m after putting his head in a plastic bag attached around his neck with tape. [ excerpts from the red list & Wikipedia ]

Thomas William "Tom" Roberts (8 March 1856 – 14 September 1931) was an Australian artist and a key member of the Heidelberg School, also known as Australian Impressionism. After attending art schools in Melbourne, he left for Europe in 1881 to further his training, and returned home in 1885, "primed with whatever was the latest in art". He did much to promote en plein air painting and encouraged other artists to capture the national life of Australia. While he is best known for his "national narratives", among them Shearing the Rams (1890), A break away! (1891) and Bailed Up(1895), he also achieved renown as a portraitist.
Through the 1880s and 1890s Roberts worked in Victoria, in his studio at the famous studio complex of Grosvenor Chambers at 9 Collins Street, Melbourne. In 1885 he started painting and sketching excursions to outer suburbs, creating camps at Box Hill and Heidelberg, where he worked alongside McCubbin, Arthur Streeton andCharles Conder, working on representing Australia’s light, heat, space and distance.

In 1896 he married 35-year-old Elizabeth (Lillie) Williamson and they had a son, Caleb. Many of his most famous paintings come from this period. Roberts was an expert maker of picture frames, and during the period 1903–1914, when he painted relatively little, much of his income apparently came from this work. Roberts spentWorld War I in England assisting at a hospital. In Australia, he built a house at Kallista, near Melbourne. Elizabeth died in January 1928, and Roberts remarried, to Jean Boyes, in August 1928. He died in 1931 of cancer in Kallista near Melbourne. He is buried near Longford, Tasmania.

“Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything. My head is bursting with it.” ~ Claude Monet

Regram from @laboureausebastien
Happy Birthday to Claude Monet! He would have turned 177 yesterday, and he is the star of the auction blocks. Several of his works sold yesterday at auction for tens of millions of dollars... He was quite a revolutionary of his own, fathered the Impressionist movement with his 1872 oil entitled Impression Soleil Levant. He loved his gardens and his cats.

I think this is the most romantic place in #LA #lacmalights I love this spot for 1000 reasons but I will save that for #Oprah 😜. It is an art installation where an artist collected over 202 street lights (yes I have counted them) from the 1920s and 30s and restored them to light up the city they once lit after they had been discarded. This beauty was the result, Have you ever felt discarded ? Is there a #ChrisBurden in your life (name of the artist) that sees your value and restores you to life daily? Someone , something or that it that replenishes your joy ? Well if you are lucky and do then don’t take that for granted. Give the same gift right back. 😍🤗😎

Pablo Picasso was born on this day, October 25, 1881.
Picasso was exceptionally prolific throughout his long lifetime. The total number of artworks he produced has been estimated at 50,000, comprising 1,885 paintings; 1,228 sculptures; 2,880 ceramics, roughly 12,000 drawings, many thousands of prints, and numerous tapestries and rugs.

Reflecting on his youth, Picasso said, "When I was a child my mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. If you become a monk, you'll be the pope.' Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso." On the left is a portrait of Picasso in 1904. On the right is his amazing cubist piece "Confidences", made in 1934.

"Painting... we do not talk about it, we do not analyse it, we feel it." ~ Bernard Buffet

French figurative painter Bernard Buffet was the Artist on High brought unfathomably low. In the jet-set 50s, his reputation rivaled Picasso’s, as did his outsize persona (shaped by his partner Pierre Bergé, who would ditch him soon after laying eyes on the young Yves Saint Laurent). [ excerpt from vanityfair.com ]

Bernard Buffet tasted unprecedented critical and commercial success at an age when his contemporaries were still at art school. Then, with almost equal suddenness the fruits of fame turned sour and he found himself an outcast. Scarred with the contagion of immense commercial success no leper was more untouchable. He was the first artist of the television age and the jet age and his role in creating the idea of a post-war France is not to be underestimated. As the first of the so-called Fabulous Five (Francoise Sagan, Roger Vadim, Brigitte Bardot and Yves Saint Laurent) he was a leader of the cultural revolution that seemed to forge a New France from the shattered remains of a discredited and demoralized country.
Rich in incident Buffet’s remarkable story of bisexual love affairs, betrayal, vendettas lasting half a century, shattered reputations, alcoholism, and drug abuse, is played out against the backdrop of the beau monde of the 1950s and 1960s in locations as diverse as St Tropez, Japan, Paris, Dallas, St Petersburg and New York, before coming to its miserable conclusion alone in his studio.

It is said that asphyxiation brings on a state of hallucinatory intoxication...in which case the 71 year old artist who lay in his sprawling Provencal villa died happy. In the early afternoon of Monday 4 October 1999, now shunned by museums and wracked with Parkinson's, and unable to paint because of a fall in which he had broken his wrist, Bernard Buffet calmly placed a plastic bag over his head, taped it tight around his neck and patiently waited the few minutes it took for death to arrive. [ excerpt from the book "Bernard Buffet: The Invention of the Modern Mega-artist" by Nicholas Foulkes ]

LIVRES - Le dernier né d'Anna Gavalda est un livre pantoufle. Recueil de sept nouvelles, on y trouve une flopée de personnages touchants et toujours cette impression rassurante de "vraie vie" et de "vrais gens". 😊
▪On est ravis de retrouver le style typique de l'écrivaine et on adore se trouver nez à nez avec ces phrases-perles dont elle a le secret. ▪Pas du calibre d'"Ensemble c'est tout" ou de "La consolante", c'est néanmoins un bon livre qui semble être là pour nous faire patienter entre deux chefs d'oeuvres. ⏳📚

“Sometimes I don’t know exactly what I want [with a painting]. I check it out, recheck it for days or weeks. Sometimes there is more to do on it. Sometimes I am afraid of ruining what I have. Sometimes I am lazy, I don’t finish it or I don’t push it far enough. Sometimes I think it’s a painting.” ~ Joan Mitchell

Joan Mitchell (1925 – 1992) was an American abstract expressionist painter and printmaker, even though much of her career took place in France. She was one of her era's few female painters to gain critical and public acclaim.

Often classified as a "second-generation" Abstract Expressionist, Joan Mitchell owed as much to the School of Paris as she did to the New York School. A card-carrying member of the Eighth Street Club and a regular fixture at the legendary Cedar Tavern, hang out of Jackson Pollock, William de Kooning, Franz Kline and the rest, she considered her friend and lover de Kooning her father and her Freudian analyst Edrita Fried her mother.
Mitchell’s personality was so strong, and her drinking so prodigious, her sex life so rampant, her belligerent and volatile personality so well known that the endless stories about her behavior begin to take on a life of their own.

When she was born in 1925, her father wanted a boy. He let her know that her entire life, leading her to seek psychiatric help. Mitchell had both synesthesia and an eidetic memory. In other words, she saw much of the world—letters, sounds, people, and even emotions—as colors, while at the same time remembering every detail of the past as vividly as the present. That unique combination and Mitchell’s drive to become an artist helped her rise within the male-dominated art world of the 1950s.
