GUN OF THE DAY - Walther UIT Rifle International smallbore competition calls for adherence to rules that govern the allowable parameters of weight, trigger pull, and sighting. In past times, the governing entity was the Union International de Tir (UIT), which became the International Shooting Union (ISU), and finally became the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF). Walther designed this bolt-action rifle to meet existing requirements at the time of its production. Caliber: .22LR Production Dates: 1970 - 1990 #NRAmuseums #GunOfTheDay #guns #rifle Walther Arms, Inc.

"There are no rules. Let the picture lead you where it must go." Helen Frankenthaler poured thinned pigment directly on an unprimed canvas. This style characterized the artist's work and is reminiscent of watercolor painting. Frankenthaler's arrangement of colors and shapes often evoke the natural environment, and she frequently refers to her works as landscapes. In each work of art, she creates a unique visual space, atmosphere, and mood. Helen Frankenthaler, "Nature Abhors a Vacuum," 1973, acrylic on canvas, National Gallery of Art, Washington, Patrons' Permanent Fund and Gift of Audrey and David Mirvish, Toronto, Canada
The Grenville Jewel - British Museum 2017-12-13 17:00
The Grenville Jewel: This stunning locket was sent from husband to wife during the English Civil War while the political climate kept them apart. Inside is a portrait of Sir Bevil Grenville – a Royalist general from Cornwall who sent this jewel containing his portrait to his wife Lady Grace Grenville between 1639 and 1643. The locket is decorated with enamelled pansies which were associated with loving thoughts at the time. Diamonds, emeralds, opals, rubies and pearls adorn its glittering exterior. We’ll be taking a closer look at treasures like this from our Waddesdon Bequest Gallery in a #FacebookLive broadcast with Curator Dora Thornton – join us on Friday 15 December at 09.00 GMT. Get your questions ready – we’d love to hear from you!
