Today is a great one for lovers of contemporary music, who will want to join me in wishing a happy birthday to George Crumb and Sofia Gubaidulina, in their eighties and still going strong, while remembering the late, great Luciano Berio.

Four Monoprints by Robert Rauschenberg and Susan Weil, 1949-51

Posted in Art with tags , on October 22, 2014 by Dylan Thomas Hayden

Robert Rauschenberg and Susan Weil, Female Figure, c.1950
Robert Rauschenberg and Susan Weil, Light Borne in Darkness, c.1951
Robert Rauschenberg and Susan Weil, Sue, c. 1949
Robert Rauschenberg and Susan Weil, Untitled [double Rauschenberg], c. 1950
Another favourite artist, Robert Rauschenberg, was born on this day in 1925. These monoprints made in collaboration with Susan Weil were created using photosensitive blueprint paper. They seem to anticipate the Anthropométries of Yves Klein that would later invert their technique and colour values rather neatly.

Born on this day in 1882 Edmund Dulac was one of the greatest artists of the golden age of children’s book illustration, and perhaps my personal favourite of that brilliant generation of visual fantasists.
