Rosa Bonheur was born on 16 March 1822 in Bordeaux, France. She was the oldest child in a family of artists, and several of her siblings were also very successful painters or sculptors. Rosa Bonheur was the best known of these, and her work is on display in galleries world-wide. Every exhibiting institution has its own style for the identifying labels that appear with the objects displayed in its galleries. Essentially, they repeat the information given in the checklist or catalogue entry, often following the same or a similar format. Labels with text, sometimes called chats or didactics, usually follow the same rules as any other kind of text. Liu, X., Burns, D.S., Stump, T.E., & Unroe, K.T. (2015).

From its foundation in the later fourth century, the monastery of Apa Apollo was semi-cenobitic, that is, it was a loosely regulated collection of hermitages under the aegis of Apa Apollo. Apollo, his teaching, and his monastery were well known within Egypt, Palestine, and beyond by the turn of the fifth century, thanks in part to the account of pilgrims from Palestine in the History of the Monks of Egypt. By the sixth century, when the monastery entered its most prosperous phase, with much new building, renovation, decoration, and redecoration, Apollo’s establishment was a double monastery with hundreds of groups, or households, of men and some women. As we know much more about the men of the monastery, I focus on the male viewer. To date, of the small fraction of the monastery that has been excavated, the combined expense of the many wall-painting programs undertaken from the sixth through the seventh century suggests not only an openness to dramatically programmed interiors but also the messages that the programs were intended to an overview of textual and archaeological evidence for late antique monasticism across Egypt and for the monastery of Apa Apollo at Bawit, see E. Wipszycka, Moines et communautés monastiques en Égypte (IVe-VIIIe siècles) (Warsaw, 2009), 143-50.

20th Century Masters. Exh. cat. New York: Sidney Janis Gallery, 1994. Evolutionary discussions of music can already be found in the writings of Darwin. Darwin discussed some possibilities but felt there was no satisfactory solution to music’s origins (Darwin, 1871, 1872). His intellectual heirs have been less cautious. Miller (2000), for instance, has argued that music making is a reasonable index of biological fitness, and so a manifestation of sexual selection—analogous to the peacock’s tail. Anyone who can afford the biological luxury of making music must be strong and healthy. Thus, music would offer an honest social signal of physiological fitness. Another line of theorizing refers to music as a means of social and emotional communication. For example, Panksepp and Bernatzky (2002, p. 139) argued that in social creatures like ourselves, whose ancestors lived in arboreal environments where sound was one of the most effective ways to coordinate cohesive group activities, reinforce social bonds, resolve animosities, and to establish stable hierarchies of submission and dominance, there could have been a premium on being able to communicate shades of emotional meaning by the melodic character (prosody) of emitted sounds. A similar idea is that music contributes to social cohesion and thereby increases the effectiveness of group action. Work and war songs, lullabies, and national anthems have bound together families, groups, or whole nations. Relatedly, music may provide a means to reduce social stress and temper aggression in others. The idea that music may function as a social cement has many proponents (see Huron, 2001; Mithen, 2006; Bicknell, 2007). July 22-26. Ages 6-8. This workshop will teach the basic principles of making three-dimensional paper art and creating the optical illusion of motion using Zoetrope animation. Students will practice their illustration skills by creating their own original characters for mechanical pop-up” books, Zoetropes, squash books and shadow puppetry. At the end of the week, the group will produce a play featuring students’ hand-crafted shadow puppets. $125 ($110 members). 701 Whaley St. 803-319-9949. However, only recently have researchers in the field of music, personality, and social psychology begun to focus on how music and empathy are linked. For example, Wöllner (2012) showed that people with higher levels of empathy are able to perceive and identify a musician’s intentions with greater accuracy than those with lower levels, and Egermann and McAdams (2013) demonstrated that perceived and induced emotion from music is moderated by empathy. Further, not only does empathy influence physiological reactions to music (Miu & Balteş, 2012), but Vuoskoski and colleagues have shown that empathy is associated with susceptibility to induced sadness from music (Vuoskoski & Eerola, 2012), and also enjoyment of sad music (Vuoskoski, Thompson, McIlwain, & Eerola, 2012). Researchers have also suggested that music increases prosocial behavior in children (Kirschner & Tomasello, 2010), adolescence (Rickson & Watson, 2003) and adults (Greitemeyer, 2009). Finally, recent research by Rabinowitch, Cross, and Burnard (2013) demonstrated that long-term group musical interaction conducted for an hour once a week increases emotional empathy in children aged 8-11 years old.

Music performance is both a natural human activity, present in all societies, and one of the most complex and demanding cognitive challenges that the human mind can undertake. Unlike most other sensory-motor activities, music performance requires precise timing of several hierarchically organized actions, as well as precise control over pitch interval production, implemented through diverse effectors according to the instrument involved. Authors review the cognitive neuroscience literature of both motor and auditory domains, highlighting the value of studying interactions between these systems in a musical context, and propose some ideas concerning the role of the premotor cortex in integration of higher order features of music with appropriately timed and organized actions. Louis McNally paintings are being increasingly collected by art enthusiasts and are now found in many private and public art collections including; Standard Life, Homes and Gardens Magazines and Institute of American Museums Washington. With pieces dating back 6,000 year, the Getty offers one of the most complete collections of artistic treasures in the world. Its most prized pieces, Irises by Vincent van Gogh and La Promenade by Renior, both feature on the virtual tour. A museum view is also available on the Google Arts and Culture tool. From there, you can explore the Getty Center’s many outdoor sculptures as well as its Center of Photographs. The latter is widely regarded as the finest collection of photographs in world, dating from the earliest days of camera technology.
