Brittany

. Because of its distinct culture and beautiful landscapes, Brittany has inspired many French artists since the 19th century. The Pont-Aven School, which started to emerge in the 1850s and lasted until the beginning of the 20th century, had a decisive influence on modern painting. The artists who settled in Pont-Aven wanted to break away from the Academic style (Academic art) of the École des Beaux-Arts and later from Impressionism when it began to decline. Among them were

now remembered for having tutored Poussin. He found French art in a stage of transition: the old apprenticeship system was disturbed, and the academic training (Academic art) destined to supplant it was not yet established by Simon Vouet; but having met Courtois the mathematician, Poussin was fired by the study of his collection of engravings by Marcantonio Raimondi after Italian masters.

Florence

display RenCourse 1.+The+Renaissance+and+the+Visual+Arts Over the last twenty years, use of the term has been frequently criticized by academic art historians for over-simplifying artistic developments, ignoring historical context, and focusing only on a few iconic works. Marcia Hall, “Classicism, Mannerism and the Relieflike Style” in ''The Cambridge Companion to Raphael'', Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, p. 224. Biography He was born in Florence and apprenticed with Andrea Sansovino whose name he subsequently adopted, changing his name from Jacopo Tatti. He returned to Florence in 1511 where he received commissions for marble sculptures of St. James (Saint James the Great) for the Duomo (Santa Maria del Fiore) and a Bacchus (Dionysus), now in the Bargello. His proposals for sculpture to adorn the façade of the Church of San Lorenzo (Basilica di San Lorenzo di Firenze), however, were rejected by Michelangelo, who was in charge of the scheme, to whom he wrote a bitter letter of protest in 1518. Early Years Cherubini was born '''Maria Luigi Carlo Zenobio Salvatore Cherubini''' in Florence. There is uncertainty about his exact date of birth. Although 14 September is sometimes stated, evidence from baptismal records and Cherubini himself suggests the 8th is correct. Perhaps the strongest evidence is his first name, Maria, which is traditional for a child born on 8 September, feast-day of the Nativity of the Virgin. Sadie, p. 833 His instruction in music began at the age of six with his father, Bartolomeo, ''maestro al cembalo'' ("Master of the harpsichord"). Considered a child prodigy, Cherubini studied counterpoint and dramatic style at an early age. By the time he was thirteen, he had composed several religious works. Early life Ludwig was born in Munich, the eldest son of Prince Luitpold of Bavaria (Luitpold, Prince Regent of Bavaria) and of his wife, Archduchess Augusta of Austria (Augusta, Archduchess of Austria) (daughter of Grand Duke Leopold II of Tuscany (Leopold II, Grand Duke of Tuscany)). Hailing from Florence, Augusta always spoke in Italian to her four children. Ludwig was named for his grandfather, King Ludwig I of Bavaria. Living in poor conditions (as reported by visiting scholar Teohari Antonescu), Nastasă (2003), p.66-68 the four-year engagement of his scholarship still applicable, Nicolae Iorga decided to spend his remaining time abroad, researching more city archives in Germany (Munich), Austria (Innsbruck) and Italy (Florence, Milan, Naples, Rome, Venice etc.). In this instance, his primordial focus was on historical figures from his Romanian homeland, the defunct Danubian Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia: the Moldavian Prince (List of rulers of Moldavia) Peter the Lame, his son Ştefăniţă, and Romania's national hero, the Wallachian Prince (List of rulers of Wallachia) Michael the Brave. He also met, befriended and often collaborated with fellow historians from European countries other than Romania: the editors of ''Revue de l'Orient Latin'', who first published studies Iorga later grouped in the six volumes of ''Notes et extraits'' ("Notices and Excerpts") and Frantz Funck-Brentano, who enlisted his parallel contribution for ''Revue Critique''. Iova, p.xxxiv. See also Setton, p.62 Iorga's articles were also featured in two magazines for ethnic Romanian (Romanians) communities in Austria-Hungary: ''Familia (Familia (literary magazine))'' and ''Vatra (Vatra (Romanian magazine))''. Encyclopedic and philosophical His great encyclopedic work is his ''Hewath Hekhmetha'', "The Cream of Science", which deals with almost every branch of human knowledge, and comprises the whole Aristotelian discipline, after Avicenna and Arabian writers. This work, so far, has not been published, with the exception of one chapter, by Margoliouth, in ''Analecta Orientalia ad poeticam Aristoteleam'' (London, 1887), 114-139. The rest is to be found only in MSS., preserved at Florence, Oxford, London, and elsewhere. (2) ''Teghrath Teghratha'', "Commerce of Commerces", a résumé of the preceding, also unpublished. (3) ''Kethabha dhe-Bhabhatha'', "Book of the Pupils of the Eyes"; compendium of logic and dialectics. (4) ''Kethabha dhe-Sewadh Sophia'', "Book of Speech of Wisdom"; compendium of physics and metaphysics. To these should be added a few translations of Arabic works into Syriac, as well as some treatises written directly in Arabic. In 1898 Vuillard visited Venice (Venice, Italy) and Florence. The following year he made a trip to London. Later he went to Milan, Venice and Spain. Vuillard also traveled in Brittany and Normandy. Early life Meucci was born at Via dei Serragli 44 in the San Frediano borough of Florence,Grand Duchy of Tuscany, (now in the Italian Republic), on 13 April 1808, as the first of nine children to Amatis and Domenica Meucci. Meucci, S., 2010. pp.15–21. Amatis was an officer of the local police and his mother was principally a homemaker. Four of Meucci's siblings did not survive childhood. In 1834 Meucci constructed a kind of acoustic telephone as a way to communicate between the stage and control room at the theatre "Teatro della Pergola" in Florence. This telephone was constructed on the model of pipe-telephones (Speaking tube) on ships and is still functional. He died at Wood House, Upper Norwood, Surrey, on 10 December 1875. In 1845, at Florence, he'd married Maria Katherine Eliza Burton (1823–1894), sister of explorer Sir Richard Francis Burton. Their daughter, Georgiana Martha Stisted (1846–1903), published ''The True Life of Captain Sir Richard Burton''. First ESF The first forum was held in Florence in November 2002. The slogan was "''Against war, racism and neo-liberalism,''" with specific reference to George W. Bush's plan for regime change in Iraq. *#Mabel *#Florence; Ida (Ida (given name)) (tie) *#----- By 1216 Francis was able to offer Clare and her companions a monastery adjoining the chapel of San Damiano (San Damiano, Assisi) where she became abbess. Clare's mother, two of her sisters and some other wealthy women from Florence soon joined her new Order. Clare dedicated her Order to the strict principles of Francis, setting a rule of extreme poverty far more severe than that of any female Order of the time. Farmer, David (ed.) ''Oxford Dictionary of Saints'', Oxford University Press (1997), p. 103 Clare's determination that her Order not be wealthy or own property, and that the nuns live entirely from alms given by local people, was initially protected by the papal bull ''Privilegium paupertatis'', issued by Pope Innocent III.

The collection originated with Lebanese (Lebanon) writer, humanist, and philosopher Saleem Moussa Ashi (1909–1984), whose pen name was Dr. Dahesh. The core of the museum's exhibit is Dr. Dahesh's collection of more than 2,000 academic paintings created in a style that struggled for years to compete with Impressionism. The museum has been without a home since 2008 with the collection available online and in a traveling exhibition. Reconnaissance missions from Incirlik Even the early years of its existence proved the value of the presence of the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey, not only to counter the threat of the communist Soviet Union during the Cold War, but also to responding to crises in the Middle East, such as in Lebanon and Israel.

This was not only a result of their (often explicit) sexual content, but also because they deliberately abandoned the conventions of classical Greek sculpture favoured by European Academic sculptors (Academic art) to experiment instead with the aesthetics of art traditions as diverse as those of India, West Africa, and the Pacific Islands.
