Study by De souse and De souse 100 is the largest randomized control trial in terms of sample size (272 chronic schizophrenia patients). Music therapy given as an adjunct to medications found that scores on positive and negative syndrome scales and on the anergia, activation and depression subscales of the positive and negative syndrome scale (PANSS) improved significantly and also were significantly better than in the control group.

After visiting a Scott show in London in 1953, James Johnson Sweeney, then director of the Guggenheim, wrote to the gallerist Martha Jackson: “At last England has a painter.” That same year Scott became one of the first British artists to visit New York, where Martha Jackson introduced him to Rothko, De Kooning, Kline, and Pollock. The following year, Scott, with Hepworth and Bacon, took part in a three-person show at the MJ Gallery going on to exhibit with Jackson regularly through the next decade. The influence of Rothko was particularly … Read the rest

Architecture is my favorite kind of art, but sculpture is right in there behind it. I really like these photos of sculptures, even the strange ones. If I ever get back to Houston I’ll definitely have to check some of these out.

Piet Mondrian (born March 7, 1872) was a Dutch painter who played a pioneering role in bringing art forms, such as ‘Neo-Plasticism’ and ‘Cubism,’ into limelight. The rules of ‘Contemporary Arts’ could never trap him. During the 1920s, Laurens’ style evolved. He abandoned the sharp geometric shapes of ‘Cubism’ and adapted a less ‘Abstract’ and more sensuous ‘Curvilinear’ style to give a decorative effect. Critics often described Laurens’ works as innovative and uninhibited. His works spanned from ‘Collage Making,’ to ‘Poster Painting,’ to ‘Engraving,’ and ‘Theater Designing.’ “Bunch of Grapes” (1922), “Seated Woman” (1930), “Oceanid” (1933), “The Farewell” (1941), “Water Sprites” (1933), “Bathers” (1931), and “Autumn” (1948), are a few examples of the exceptional works he did in his lifetime. In 1938, he exhibited with Braque and Picasso, in the key Scandinavian cities. Knight, Christopher. The Barry Lowen Collection. Exh. cat. Los Angeles: Museum of Contemporary Art, 1986.
