“The species hails from a time in the Cretaceous period, between 100 and 66 million years ago, when birds were in the process of losing many of the traits inherited from their dinosaur forebears and evolving into the winged, feathered creatures we know today.” http://bit.ly/2GdjSbS

    Dinosaur-Era Bird Found With Shockingly Intact Skull
    A delicate but remarkably well-preserved fossil skull is providing new clues to how birds evolved from their dinosaur ancestors. The first known fossil of the ancient bird Ichthyornis was unearthed in 1870 in Kansas, under the direction of legendary fossil-hunter Othniel Charles Marsh.

Happy birthday to Pennsylvania-born artist Mary Cassatt, born on this day in 1844. Cassatt attended the PAFA The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts here in Philadelphia before moving to Paris where she lived and worked for many years. In Paris, she had close relationships with many of the impressionists including Berthe Morisot and Edgar #Degas. Her late works, including the two watercolors at the Barnes, focus on the theme of mother and child. Look for this work in room 15 on your next visit. 🎨 Mary Cassatt. “Woman with Nude Boy at Her Left,” c. 1911–1913

Overview

    Philadelphia Museum of Art - Exhibitions - Agnes Martin: The Untroubled Mind/Works from the Daniel W. Dietrich II Collection
    Visionary and idiosyncratic, Agnes Martin (1912-2004) aimed to express universal emotional states in her precise compositions. This intimate installation explores the ideas that shaped Agnes Martin's minimalist art, and reflects upon her enduring friendship with longtime supporter Daniel W. Dietrich II. In addition to paintings, it features drawings, a sculpture, and archival materials.

On this day in 1471, Albrecht Dürer was born ...

On this day in 1471, Albrecht Dürer was born in Nuremberg, Germany. Dürer is considered the most influential artist of the Northern Renaissance. An innovative printmaker and painter, Dürer produced works that inspired many subsequent artists throughout history. #LOOKSLOWLY at this oil painting in the Barnes collection, created by an unknown 17th-century artist who combined multiple compositions originally drafted by Dürer. Although small in scale, “Saint Jerome and the Lion” contains a vast amount of detail. The rugged cliffs are filled with nooks and crannies; a church is located atop the cliffs; and off in the horizon a paradisiacal castle appears to float on the water. In a reduced palette of browns, the artist captures the humility and simplicity that characterize the hermitic Saint Jerome, who is pictured in the foreground with a book, cross, and his companionate lion. On your next visit, look for this piece in room 4 and search for these small details: a bluebell plant in the foreground (bluebells have long been associated with humility and everlasting love), a lizard on the cliff by the saint’s outstretched hand, and tiny ships on the water’s horizon. 🎨 After Albrecht Dürer. “Saint Jerome and the Lion,” probably first half of the 16th century

Happy birthday to Henri Rousseau, a French Post-Impressionist painter best known for his vibrant jungle scenes. Interestingly, despite his prolific painting of jungle scenes, Rousseau never set foot in a real jungle, but rather drew inspiration from botanical gardens in Paris, taxidermied animals, illustrated books, and stories relayed by soldiers who had served during the French expedition to Mexico. This is just one of several amazing works by Rousseau that you can see on your next visit to the Barnes! 🎨 Henri Rousseau. “Monkeys and Parrot in the Virgin Forest (Singes et perroquet dans la forêt vierge),” c. 1905–1906

On this day in 1932, Amelia Earhart took off for Ireland to become the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Even as new technology for radio and navigation was developed, Earhart continued to fly strictly by instinct. While working to improve her aviation skills, she and her husband planned a solo flight across the Atlantic. In 1932, they announced that on the fifth anniversary of Charles Lindbergh’s across the Atlantic, Amelia would attempt the same. Earhart landed in Ireland after a thirteen hour flight.
