AWOL - The Ancient World Online: Online Library of Digitized Sanskrit and Prakrit Manuscript Catalogues
"This collection of manuscript catalogues is derived almost entirely from the Digital Library of India.  Some come from the Archive.org and the Jain eLibrary.   A great debt of gratitude is due to all these resources for selflessly promoting scholarship." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

"On Tuesday, New Yorkers will get their last chance to see the Museum of Modern Art's "Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs," a show that gathers about 100 of the artist's painted-paper works — the largest and most extensive presentation of these works ever assembled. The exhibition begins in the 1930s, covering work Matisse started producing toward the end of his life. Can't make it to the museum? Here is the wall-to-wall experience." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

"Walter Liedtke, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's curator of Dutch and Flemish painting, was killed in the crash of a Metro-North train Tuesday evening. Liedtke commuted from the Upper East Side to his home in Westchester County, where he lived on a farm with his wife Nancy." - Maitani
On 3quarksdaily you find a beautiful video on "Vermeer's Masterpiece The Milkmaid: Discreet Object of Desire" by Walter Liedtke. It is quite long, more than 1 hour, but to me it is worth it. :-) - Maitani

Bored Panda recently posted a photo gallery of snails sporting colorfully painted shells. Some of the people who paint the shells do so for artistic reasons, but others fancy themselves good Samaritans, believing that brightly painted snails are less likely to be accidentally stepped on by people. However, commenters have pointed out that painted snails may be easier prey for predators. And while non-toxic paint appears to be the standard amongst snail painters, the paint’s effect on snails is unknown. - Bronson

"A collection of Russian fairytales translated from the Russian of Nikolai Polevoy, a notable editor, writer, translator in the early 19th century. The translations were made by Robert Nisbet Bain, a British historian who worked for the British Museum, and a polyglot who could reportedly speak over twenty languages fluently. He famously taught himself Hungarian in order that he could read the works of Mór Jókai in the original after first reading him in German, going on to become the most prolific translator into English from Hungarian in the nineteenth century." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

Goya: Order and Disorder by Colm Tóibín | The Gallery | The New York Review of Books
"There are two ways, perhaps, of looking at Franciso Goya,” writes Colm Tóibín in the Review’s December 18, 2014 issue. In the first version, Goya, who was born near Zaragoza in 1746 and died in exile in France in 1828, “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 the second version, it is as though a war was going on within Goya’s psyche from the very start…. His imagination was ripe for horror.” We present below a series of prints and paintings from the show under review—the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston’s “Goya: Order and Disorder,” now closed—along with commentary on the images drawn from Tóibín’s piece." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

"When the Loeb Classical Library was founded in 1911, it was hailed as a much-needed effort to make the glories of the Greek and Roman classics available to general readers." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

This is a spectacular, very important project, which has been long overdue. I am excited! I hope the editors/publishers will be in a position to follow through on it. - Maitani
It would be lovely, though we still have the "Sacred Books of the East", edited by Max Müller, that covers some very important books from India. - Haukr Neanderthal
Sure, but the scope of this series is different and much wider, as to the intention of the editors. The "Sacred Books of the East" series focuses on ancient religious texts, it is undispensable, of course, and precious, but what about secular literature, later works, works written in languages that are not Indo-Aryan? - Maitani
Sacred Books of the East http://www.sacred-texts.com/sbe... - Maitani
yes, of course, that's why we're all looking forward to this new catalog :) - Haukr Neanderthal
I am not sure about that. In German schools, we learn next to nothing about the political or cultural history of South Asia (and other regions) before colonialism. I don't know who will be interested in these works other than indologists. - Maitani
The situation's not different in Italy, but I have a personal interest in India and such books can be very difficult to find (even more with a translation). I suppose that the translation itself and the ebook format might help to create a greater audience, or to allow more studies and papers on the subject of the said books. - Haukr Neanderthal
Do you have special spheres of interest related to India? - Maitani
mostly myths and religions. - Haukr Neanderthal

"The slaughtering of animals and preparing of meat for the winter are the labours highlighted in these final calendar pages of the year.   On the opening folio can be found the beginning of the saints’ days for December.  Below, a roundel miniature shows two men in a barn; one has his hands firmly on the horns of a bull, holding him steady, while the other man is preparing to deliver the coup de grâce with a wooden mallet.   In the facing folio, another man is butchering a hog outdoors, wielding a long, sharp knife.  A bucket of blood is beneath the slaughtering table, and above, we can see a wooly ram (perhaps aghast at the carnage), for the zodiac sign Capricorn.  Surrounding this scene is another golden architectural frame, populated with angels playing musical instruments, and a kneeling monk above, perhaps in honour of the feast of the Nativity." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

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
