Some sticker designs I did featuring my favorite prehistoric baddies, the Venus of Willendorf, the Venus of Hohle Fels, and the Venus of Dolní Vêstonice. And You also can’t forget the most unhinged girl in the club bathroom, the Minoan Snake Goddess.

Day 75. (April 17, 2021.)
The National Museum of Fine Arts of Cuba (el Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de Cuba, MNBA) is one of those museums where you end up spending hours. It has everything.
The museum is divided into two buildings: one dedicated solely to Cuban art, and the other building for the "universal art," which is mainly Western art (there is no dedicated permanent exhibit room for Asian or African art, and there is no permanent exhibit dedicated to indigenous heritage).
Since the website is only available in Spanish, I'll provide a link to each of the museum's sections:
Permanent Exhibitions - Cuban Art Building
Colonial era, 17th to 19th centuries
Turn of the 20th century
Modern consolidation era and the Havana School
Rise of the modern art, 1925-
Other perspectives of the modern art
Permanent Exhibitions - Universal Art Building
Ancient Near/Middle East
Ancient Etruria (Italian Peninsula)
17th Century Netherlands
15th-19th Century Germany
15th-19th Century Spain
17th-19th Century Britain
Latin American Art

Happy birthday to Louise-Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun, who was born on this day in 1755. One of the most prominent (and popular) French portrait painters of the late 1700s, she created over 800 paintings in her lifetime. Marie Antoinette was one of Vigée-Lebrun’s many patrons, and with her support the artist became one of fourteen women admitted to the Royal Academy prior to the French Revolution. Madame Le Brun caused a great scandal at her first Salon, when she exhibited “Marie-Antoinette in a Chemise Dress,” portraying the queen in a simple, informal white muslin garment. Deemed too inappropriate for the public eye, the artist was asked to remove it from the exhibition. Vigée-Lebrun continued to make waves when her painting “Self-Portrait with Her Daughter, Julie” was exhibited at the Salon of 1787, which portrayed the artist smiling open-mouthed, breaking traditional painting conventions.
This particular portrait is of Madame Du Barry, a longtime mistress of King Louis XV. Vigée-Lebrun painted Du Barry three times. It is likely that Du Barry gave this picture to her English lover, Henry Seymour.

Day 74. (April 16, 2021.)
Only a few blocks away from the Royal Alberta Museum (see yesterday's feature) is the Art Gallery of Alberta (AGA), whose mission is to be the "creative hub of Alberta."
The AGA remains also closed, but recordings of all past virtual events and educational programming are available online.
Barkley L. Hendricks was born in Philadelphia on this day in 1945. Inspired by the portraits he saw while touring Europe in the mid-1960s, Hendricks began to make paintings of people who, like him, were stylish, self-assured, and Black. "Miss T" was among the first of many portraits Hendricks made of important people in his life. By representing Robin Tyler, his girlfriend at the time, as a full-length figure against a monochromatic background, Hendricks transforms her chic presence into a modern icon.
Learn more about Hendricks by watching this video and visit "Miss T" in "Painting Identity," now on view.

After dinner at Noi, DL & I visited the Seattle Art Museum! The SAM is approx 2mins walk away from Noi; literally across the Harbour Steps.
So excited!! Every trip I go on, I visit an art museum.
Love that silhouette figure~
When we went to the SAM, it was a Thursday, AND it was the 1st Thursday of February. Why? Because it’s free admission day :D
*I just checked on their website, & they still have this free admission day
The quieter side of the lobby.
They have complimentary coat check, & large bags must be checked.
On the day when we went, there was another special event going on in a blocked off section on the main floor. I believe it was a music program, which was private & required tickets to enter. But check out that large hanging sculpture installation :O it looked much bigger in real life! It’s called “Middle Fork” by John Grade.
I will be posting several posts for the SAM bcos I got a lot of pictures, but I’ll separate them into what I think works best.
In this post, I’ll share some photos from the East Asian Art Gallery.
In this gallery, there were different art types - originating from China, Japan, & Korea.
I get to see this in person! Introducing to you, the ‘jue’ & ‘ding’.
Jue (left) is a ceremonial wine cup/vessel.
Ding (right), also a ceremonial vessel, is used to make offerings to the ancestors.
Both are made of bronze & originated in the Shang dynasty.
I studied these works in a class in University! Ahhh the thrill of seeing them. .. you just don’t understand.
More calligraphy works but not in the form of paper scrolls.
Pretty incense burners. Which one is your favourite? Mine is the one on the left; it’s simple & smooth, & it just looks so . .. calm & peaceful.
Fancy cups with landscape carvings

I want this! It has such a pure vibe.
I was unaware of the fact that during the Ming dynasty, they had brushes with cover/lid :O
Nabeshima ware. These are very high-quality Japanese pottery that were generally not exported, but rather for (rich) ppl to collect & admire.

I really appreciated their attention to the lighting in this no-entry display. The light thru ‘the window’ just made the overall display that much better & natural-looking. Don’t you think?
Happy 280th birthday to Charles Willson Peale, who was born on this day in 1741. He was the patriarch of the first artistic dynasty in the United States—fifteen Peale artists, spanning four generations, are represented in the museum’s collection. Three of his sons and two of his brother James’s daughters became professional artists; other family members also painted and mentored the next generation of Peales. Learn about the whole Peale family when our New Early American Galleries open next month.
