The Dark & Light of Francisco Goya by Colm Tóibín | The New York Review of Books - http://www.nybooks.com/article...
The Dark & Light of Francisco Goya by Colm Tóibín | The New York Review of Books
"There are two ways, perhaps, of looking at Goya, who was born near Zaragoza in 1746 and died in exile in France in 1828. In the first version, he was almost innocent, a serious and ambitious artist interested in mortality and beauty, but also playful and mischievous, until politics and history darkened his imagination. In this version, “history charged,” took him by surprise, and deepened his talent. In the second version, it is as though a war was going on within Goya’s psyche from the very start. While interested in many subjects, he was ready for violence and chaos, so that even if the war between French and Spanish forces between 1808 and 1814 and the insurrection in Madrid in 1808 had not happened, he would have found some other source and inspiration for the dark and violent images he needed to create. His imagination was ripe for horror." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

Sheena Iyengar on Choice - Shunya's Notes - http://blog.shunya.net/shunyas...
"Sheena Iyengar's excellent anthropological survey of "choice" across cultures, with special focus on its meaning in the U.S. She "studies how we make choices—and how we feel about the choices we make", including "both trivial choices (Coke v. Pepsi) and profound ones" (18 mins)." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

War and Peace in the Bhagavad Gita by Wendy Doniger | The New York Review of Books - http://www.nybooks.com/article...
War and Peace in the Bhagavad Gita by Wendy Doniger | The New York Review of Books
"How did Indian tradition transform the Bhagavad Gita (the “Song of God”) into a bible for pacifism, when it began life, sometime between the third century BC and the third century CE, as an epic argument persuading a warrior to engage in a battle, indeed, a particularly brutal, lawless, internecine war? It has taken a true gift for magic—or, if you prefer, religion, particularly the sort of religion in the thrall of politics that has inspired Hindu nationalism from the time of the British Raj to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi today." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"The Gita (as it is generally known to its friends) occupies eighteen chapters of book 6 of the Mahabharata, an immense (over 100,000 couplets) Sanskrit epic. The text is in the form of a conversation between the warrior Arjuna, who, on the eve of an apocalyptic battle, hesitates to kill his friends and family on the other side, and the incarnate god Krishna, who acts as Arjuna’s charioteer (a low-status job roughly equivalent to a bodyguard) and persuades him to do it." - Maitani

Rembrandt in the Depths by Andrew Butterfield | NYRblog | The New York Review of Books
"“Rembrandt: The Late Works,” an exhibition now on view at London’s National Gallery, will linger long in the mind of anyone who has the pleasure to see it. Bringing together approximately ninety paintings, prints, and drawings Rembrandt made at the end of his life, it reveals a great artist working with unprecedented technical command and emotional power, even as the world closes in around him." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"In the fifteen years before his death in 1669, Rembrandt suffered one terrible reversal after another. In 1654, his common-law wife Hendrickje Stoffels was condemned as a whore for her relationship with Rembrandt, and this led some important clients to ostracize him. Ever a spendthrift, he went bankrupt two years later and was forced to auction off his house, art collection, and... more... - Maitani

:: Welcome to National Mission on Monuments and Antiquities :: - http://nmma.nic.in/nmma...
"India is perhaps one of the largest repositories of tangible heritage in the world. A major part of this heritage is preserved in her monuments, sites and antiquities of varied nature. The range of such relics, from the past is indeed very vast and covers a long span of time i.e. prehistoric to colonial times. The monuments, sites and antiquities protected and maintained so far by Archaeological Survey of India and State Archaeology Departments are only a fraction of the total repository of the country. However, most of these have not been documented in a uniform format which can provide a common platform to the scholars, researchers and planners for reference, research and its management in a diligent manner." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Today, the survival of our heritage has been endangered due to climatic, natural and manmade effects. In the recent years there is also an increasing trend of illicit trafficking of antiquities from India. This is mainly due to lack of public awareness, ignorance of law/act and also about the importance of documentation and preservation. There are few cities in the country where number... more... - Maitani

In 1764 a porcelain factory was started in Fulda under Prince-Bishop, Prince-Abbot Heinrich von Bibra, but shortly after his death it was closed down in 1789 by his successor, Prince-Bishop, Prince-Abbot Adalbert von Harstall. Because of its quality and rarity, this porcelain is much prized by collectors. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Halil from Bookmarklet

Edition Open Access | Melammu - The Ancient World in an Age of Globalization
"Melammu volumes have broadened the horizons of studies of antiquity by encouraging the crossing of geographical and cultural boundaries between ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean and Near East. The present Melammu volume extends from Greece to India, with articles on Phrygia and Armenia, also viewing texts from ancient Israel, Egypt, and Mesopotamia. The globalization described in this volume extends over language barriers and literatures, showing how texts as well as goods can travel between societies and regions. This collection of papers offer new insights and perspectives into connections between the Mediterranean World, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, Persia and India." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

Fransız fotoğrafçı Antoine Bruy 2010-2013 yılları arasında otostopla yola çıkıp Avrupa’nın dağlık bölgelerinde dolanmış. Yola çıkarken hiçbir rota belirlememiş. Yol üzerinde ise işte o kaçıp gidebilenlerle tanışmış. Dağdaki özgürlüklerini, şehirdeki rahatlıklarına tercih eden bu insanlar Bruy’un “Scrublands” fotoğraf serisine konu olmuş ve Bruy bunu bir belgesel projesi haline getirmiş. Bir zamanlar şehirde kurulu düzenleri olan şimdiyse kendi kendilerine yetebilen, derme çatma evlerde yaşayıp tarımla uğraşanların fotoğrafları insana heyecan ve cesaret veriyor.http://www.nolm.us/evlen-a... - Bronson
