Strange Days review – fishy kisses, naked prancing and ribald revenge

"You’ll go fishing in the Amazon, have a wild old time in Ryan Trecartin’s queer frat-house... swim beneath the decaying lily pads on a blue autumnal day with Pipilotti Rist and enter a world of horticultural sex and death with Laure Prouvost."
—The Guardian on our London exhib...

In Turner's beautifully epic portrayal of Homer's Odyssey, we see Ulysses standing aloft on his ship deriding the Cyclops, whom he and his companions have just left blinded, and invoking the vengeance of Neptune. One of the flags is painted with the scene of the Trojan Horse. The horses of the Sun are rising above the horizon ('Odyssey', Book 9). Opening on Monday, visit 'Thomas Cole: Eden to Empire' and see Turner's influence on this American artist: http://bit.ly/2JsMlxa

This Volunteers' Week we are celebrating the extraordinary contribution of over 500 volunteers at Tate who give their time, passion & expertise to visitors from all over the globe, across our four galleries. 'I didn’t know anything about contemporary art until I started volunteering at Tate in 2016. I’ve learnt a lot! I love passing on this knowledge to visitors. It keeps my brain active! My favourite room in Tate Britain is the 1840s room and my favourite painting is The Lady of Shalott. I like all the Pre-Raphaelites in Tate Britain. This is my favourite room and my favourite place to be.’ - Steve Daszko, volunteer visitor host with John William Waterhouse’s The Lady of Shalott 1888 https://goo.gl/RvZ97V

Gun of the Day - NRA Museums 2018-06-07 13:01

GUN OF THE DAY - A Ranger 1911A1? The Robert E. Petersen Gallery holds many unusual handguns and this Colt 1911A1 is right in there swinging. While some might be captivated by the fine set of stag grips on this GOTD, the oddly truncated trigger guard sets this pistol apart. There are a number of similar handguns in existence that were modified by Texas Ranger Captain Manuel T. Gonzaullas, who spent considerable time in later life in Hollywood, not far from where Robert E. Petersen lived. Is this one of that Ranger's handguns? We just don't know. Caliber: .45 ACP Production Date: 1943 #NRAmuseums #GunOfTheDay #guns #history

Gauguin was born #OnThisDay in 1848. 'Bowl of Fruit and Tankard before a Window' by Gauguin is a tribute to a Cézanne painting Gauguin had acquired around 10 years earlier, 'Still Life with Compotier, Glass and Apples'. It repeats many of the elements of this painting, such as the fruit, pottery, rumpled tablecloth and the knife at the lower right. On a wider level it is also indicative of Gauguin moving away from Impressionism to a more structurally rigorous art exemplified by Cézanne's work.
