On this day in 1783, Pilâtre de Rozier and the Marquis d'Arlandes made the first free ascent in a balloon. They flew from the center of Paris for about five and a half miles. Benjamin Franklin was in Paris for the event. Reporting on what he saw, he wrote, "We observed it lift off in the most majestic manner. When it reached around 250 feet in altitude, the intrepid voyagers lowered their hats to salute the spectators. We could not help feeling a certain mixture of awe and admiration."

Believed to be at least eight millennia old, engravings in Arabia are possibly be the oldest depictions of dogs known to archaeologists. http://bit.ly/2jBmlrj

    These may be the world's first images of dogs-and they're wearing leashes
    Carved into a sandstone cliff on the edge of a bygone river in the Arabian Desert, a hunter draws his bow for the kill. He is accompanied by 13 dogs, each with its own coat markings; two animals have lines running from their necks to the man's waist.

Jean Hugo was born in Paris on this day in 1894. Great-grandson of author Victor Hugo, he was a painter, illustrator, and theatre designer whose work brought him into contact with some of the most influential figures of 20th century art: Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Erik Satie, Marcel Proust, and many more. In addition to avant-garde theatre, he notably designed the costumes and sets for Carl Dreyer’s film “The Passion of Joan of Arc.” His personal work was modest in scale and dream-like in tone, mingling the influences of Henri Rousseau, Nicolas Poussin, and the Italian Primitives. He produced quiet, light-filled landscapes and scenes of magical realism like this small tempera painting from 1931. 🎨 Jean Hugo. The Flight (Beginning of the End of the World), 1931
