It’s #NationalDrinkWineDay! Pour yourself a glass of wine, and picture yourself amid this quiet scene by Pierre-Auguste Renoir. In 1875, the year that Renoir completed the painting, “Luncheon (Le Déjeuner)”, the wine making industry was just coming out of a fifteen year period known as “The Great French Wine Blight,” a devastating blow to France’s economy that destroyed roughly forty percent of France’s vineyards. #LOOKSLOWLY at the wine bottle on the table. While we can’t say for sure what type of wine this is, we can guess. The olive green bottle has vertically parallel sides with long sloping shoulders that do not clearly transition into the neck––typical of a Burgundy style. The wine color is cherry-red, which suggests it may be a lighter red, usually an indication of a Pinot Noir. Red Burgundy is wine that is made in the Burgundy region of eastern France using only Pinot Noir grapes. On your next visit, take the time to seek out “Luncheon” in Room 13, on the west wall of the Collection Gallery. What kinds of wine do you like to drink? 🎨 Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Luncheon (Le Déjeuner), 1875

Today Feb. 16 marks Chinese New Year, a holiday traditionally honoring household and heavenly deities as well as ancestors. In room 19 of our collection gallery hangs a Chinese painting made with black ink and heavily applied pigments on silk. #Lookclosely: A woman in white and pink sits on a porch that overlooks a body of water. Two ducks swim in the water that is covered by blossoming lily pads. A gnarled tree grows at the banks of the water at the left. Most late-nineteenth-century genre paintings made in China, such as this, were probably produced in commercial workshops and intended either for general popular consumption or the international market. 🎨 Copy after Qiu Ying. Seated Girl on Porch, Late 19th century.

    Subsidized housing can change lives. Now it's facing deep cuts | Opinion - Philly
