Beautiful Cemetery in Bartelso, IL. I stopped here on my way home from work because the old weathered headstones have always caught my eye. #oldheadstones #cemetery #1800s
Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres painted this oil sketch for the character of Phidias to prepare for a monumental public art commission depicting the story of the “Apotheosis of Homer." It also makes for a fun #MuseumSelfie. Thanks Jessica and friends! 👌

Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, “Study for Phidias in the “Apotheosis of Homer,” 1827. Oil on canvas mounted on panel. Museum purchase through the Earle W. Grant Endowment Fund. 1974.7

Traveling across the Atlantic this week is my colorized portrait of Louise Beaudet and to the hands of her relatives. She was a silent film actress, vocalist, and dancer. It was taken 127 years ago in 1891.

HISTORY•••
•Hermann Göring/Tiger Cub•
•Time (WW2)•
~Hermann Göring is pictured here with a tiger cub from a zoo.
_

The Germans during WW2 had a fascination with animals. Many of them even stood against animal cruelty, but this doesn’t paint them as nice figures even slightly. The Germans were developing plans to bring back extinct animals from around 9,000 years. They focused on a wild Auroch cow which connects to the ancient Germanic tribes. Hitler was obsessed with reinstating the Germans with the ancient Germanic tribes, so much so that he wanted to connect the people with ancient animals from the time. The animal would then be placed in the forests across Europe, and then be hunted. These ancient animals were going to be created to just be hunted.

_

Herman Göring (also had a fond love for hunting) took this idea and ran with it. He studied all about the Aurochs, and examined ancient cave drawings of them. His plan was to breed them in zoos, and then put them them in the forests across Europe. One particular place was a forest in Poland which was called “ Białowieza.” Göring was captivated by this forest and ultimately set his goal to have that forest become the home of the Aurochs.
_

The plan was never completed, but goes to show lengths they were certainly willing to go to bring animals back to life after extinction.~
