It is going to take some time, and you may need a friend or professional with a camera – but the extra effort will be worth it. Not the poverty he experienced in the beginning of living in New York, or the poor people he lived together with under the great depression in the 1930th; how he himself had to – more or the less – find his food and accept unemployment payâ€ from the government and living in cold apartments together with his brothers. Born on the South Coast of England, in Hove, East Sussex, in 1865, Robert Bevan was fortunate enough to be able to study and work in Paris during his early years as an artist, and he knew both Gaugin and Renoir, and studied alongside Pierre Bonnard. This early exposure to the works of the great French Impressionists helped Bevan to develop a very distinctive personal style of painting. Unfortunately, just like Van Gogh and Rousseau, Bevan’s work was not always well appreciated in his life-time. However, a series of retrospective exhibitions held in 1965, 100 years after his birth revealed his extraordinary talent, and many of his paintings can now be seen at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, as part of the Bevan Gift, a donation made by Robert Bevan’s children.

Contemporary Art is the art of today, produced by artists who are living in the twenty-first century. Contemporary art provides an opportunity to reflect on contemporary society and the issues relevant to ourselves, and the world around us. Contemporary artists work in a globally influenced, culturally diverse, and technologically advancing world. Their art is a dynamic combination of materials, methods, concepts, and subjects that challenge traditional boundaries and defy easy definition. Diverse and eclectic, contemporary art as a whole is distinguished by the very lack of a uniform, organizing principle , ideology, or â€˜ism.’ Contemporary art is part of a cultural dialogue that concerns larger contextual frameworks such as personal and cultural identity, family, community, and nationality.

Munnings was an official war artist in the first World War conflict in Europe, and was attached to the Canadian Cavalry Brigade. He painted this large canvas in 1918 as a tribute to ‘the last great cavalry charge’. Nearly three-quarters of the Canadian cavalry involved in this attack against German machine-gun positions at Moreuil Wood on 30 March 1918 were killed or wounded. Lieutenant G.M. Flowerdew, who led the charge, was posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross. One of the differences between the developed brains of Homo sapiens and those of the great apes is the increase in area allocated to processing auditory information. Thus, in other primates the size of the visual cortex correlates well with brain size, but in Homo sapiens it is smaller. In contrast, increases in size elsewhere in the human brain have occurred, notably in the temporal lobes, especially the dorsal area that relates to the auditory reception of speech. The expansion of primary and association auditory cortices and their connections, associated with the increased size of the cerebellum and areas of prefrontal and premotor cortex linked through basal ganglia structures, heralded a shift to an aesthetics based on sound, and to abilities to entrain to external rhythmic inputs. The first musical instrument used by our ancestors was the voice. The ear is always open and, unlike vision and the eyes or the gaze, sound cannot readily be averted. Also, for thousands of years of human existence, light in abundance was available only during daytime while sound is available ceaselessly. From the rhythmic beating within and with the mother’s body for the fetus and young infant, to the primitive drum-like beating of sticks on wood and hand clapping of our adolescent and adult proto-speaking ancestors, the growing infant is surrounded by and responds to rhythm. But, as Langer (1951, p. 93) put it, â€˜being more variable than the drum, voices soon made patterns and the long endearing melodies of primitive song became a part of communal celebration’. Some support for these ideas comes from the work of Mithen, who has argued that spoken language and music evolved from a proto-language, a musi-language which stemmed from primate calls and was used by the Neanderthals; it was emotional but without words as we know them (Mithen, 2005).

This is a review of a book published to accompany an exhibition at London’s Fashion & Textile Museum, entitled Catwalk to Cover – A Front Row Seat. In the 19th century, one of the key ways that new compositions became known to the public was by the sales of sheet music, which middle class amateur music lovers would perform at home on their piano or other common instruments, such as violin. With 20th-century music, the invention of new electric technologies such as radio broadcasting and the mass market availability of gramophone records meant that sound recordings of songs and pieces heard by listeners (either on the radio or on their record player) became the main way to learn about new songs and pieces. There was a vast increase in music listening as the radio gained popularity and phonographs were used to replay and distribute music, because whereas in the 19th century, the focus on sheet music restricted access to new music to the middle class and upper-class people who could read music and who owned pianos and instruments, in the 20th century, anyone with a radio or record player could hear operas, symphonies and big bands right in their own living room. This allowed lower-income people, who would never be able to afford an opera or symphony concert ticket to hear this music. It also meant that people could hear music from different parts of the country, or even different parts of the world, even if they could not afford to travel to these locations. This helped to spread musical styles.

Modern Art is pleased to announce aÂ major exhibition of paintings by Lois Dodd spanning the last six decades of the artist’s career. This is Dodd’s first exhibition with the gallery and her first survey outside America. The show will include works encompassing the breadth of Dodd’s output and covering key motifs including landscapes, isolated architectural elements, nocturnal scenes and burning houses. Another thing that disturbs visitors to the building are the imperfections in the vaults and the dome. The curve is not perfect. The dome – and parts of the semi-domes – fell three times over the centuries. The most ‘recent’ was the collapse of 1346 that brought down a part of the eastern arch with part of the dome. The Emperor John and his wife Anna had to beg to raise the funds to do the repairs – what was left of the empire could not finance them. The Russians and other Orthodox princes gave money and the repairs got done. Magee, W., Ghetti, C., & Moyer, A. (2015).

Raman worked on the acoustics of musical instruments from 1909 to 1935 and regularly published his research work on musical instruments in reputed journal like Nature (London), journal Dept. of science, University of Calcutta, Philosophical magazine, Indian association for cultivation of science etc. and also in various proceedings of national and international repute. He worked out the theory of transverse vibration of bowed strings, on the basis of superposition velocities. He was also the first to investigate the harmonic nature of the sound of the Indian drums such as the tabla and the mridangam 2 He had some pioneer work on violin family and ektara. On the wolf note of the violin and celloâ€, The kinematics of bowed stringâ€, The musical instruments and their tonesâ€, Musical drums with harmonic overtonesâ€ etc are some examples of his published work. Raman was fascinated by waves and sounds and is always carried in his mind the memory of reading Helmholtz’s book on â€˜The Sensations of Tone’ in his school days. His work on musical instruments is the biggest motivation of research in the area. After Sir C V Raman, research work on musical instruments was carried forward by S Kumar, K C Kar, B S Ramakrishnan and B M Banerji during mid of nineteenth century. After that there was a big void in the research of Indian musical instrument sound.
