It’s 6:30 Sunday evening where I am, but it’s very much Monday morning in Australia. Hope you all had a great weekend. May your Monday morning be better than this, wherever you are, whenever you are! Time to get to work! 🖥🤖🚀

“Pink and White over Red” by #markrothko 
An American #painter and a contributor to the #abstract #expressionist movement, Mark Rothko is one of the most celebrated artists of the #postwar era.
February 2017

As I sat reading this book at a Barnes & Noble cafe, the middle-aged man sitting at the table next to me,  mumbled something as he stood up. "Sorry?" I asked, turning to face him.
"Oh.." He hesitated. "I said, I'm surprised to see a woman reading that..." He answered with a hint of uneasiness, "...maybe that's stereotypical of me to say... "
Yes, it is, I thought.
"...but it's a really good book." He quickly added.
"It is!" I agreed wholeheartedly. We proceeded to discuss the books material and praise Kyle's work as a SEAL. When he left, I couldn't help but smile. If you know my dad, this will make him smile too.

This is the second non-fiction, Navy SEAL novel that I have read in the past two years. If I had to pick between the two--Lone Survivor or American Sniper--I would pick American Sniper. This is not to say that one story has any less significance than the other. Rather, it's simply that Kyle's layout is cleaner and a tad bit more humble than Lutrell's. Not only is it written better, but it spans a lifetime of experiences  through a series of deployments rather than just one mission. It holds more weight.

I LOVED Kyle's in-depth descriptions of the equipment that he was trained to use, like the M-60, the DPV, the Air Force A-10, his classic 300 Win Mag, and his passion for his job overall. I also thoroughly enjoyed his wife in his book and her perspective of the beginning of their relationship, as well as her feelings compared to his, in regards to him going to war, or her many days as a lone wife, mother, and her support and forgiveness towards Kyle.

I also appreciated his explanation of hazing, heavy metal music, agitation at the lack of action in the field, and dark humor. Those parts of the military, I never could fully wrap my head around. He breaks down the psychological and logistical concept behind each subject that makes much more sense regarding how it assists those in combat, and post-combat, to cope.

This book took a lot of psychological courage for both parties to share. Chris and Taya are amazing people. I personally think this is a fantastic book, but I suggest caution for the faint-hearted or those with sensitive moral.

Dear friends. This is Dawn and John. They just bought a Prefab with original post war decor on Homes Under The Hammer. Dawn and John ripped all the totally impractical but beautiful loveliness out of the aforementioned prefab and made it all neutral. I am heartbroken. Ok, slight exaggeration but I’m miffed. If you do happen to see Dawn and John around, please tell them I’d like a word. A sweary word. #huth #prefab #postwar #midcentury #vandals #fuckedit #gutted #periodfeatures #englishheritage #socialhousing #bastards #utterbastards #vintagewallpaper #youcantputitback #heathens #fuckyoudawnandjohn

Found this at the car boot sale today. It was made just after WW2 when new ”homes fit for heroes” were desperately needed. The aim of the game is to build as many houses as possible using the fewest government subsidies.

“I don’t like to say I have given my life to art. I prefer to say art has given me my life.” - Frank Stella 📷 Sinjerli Variation IIa, 1977 #weekendvibes #frankstella #abstractart #drawing #minimalism #postwar #americanart
The Collection on Prime is just splendid,even in post war it's such a sensual setting and I love LIFE Magazine vintage eras,which inspired this fictional drama along with various of fashion houses that brought women and fashion back to life and engaged Paris as the fashion capital with great cost and with great rehabilitation.
🌷
Paris will always be divine and hold such a  classic beauty.I have always been fascinated with fashion and the history that belongs to it,through ruins and rises such a Coco Chanel with her feminism through her suits to the women who wore fashions to enhance their beauty and show the world who they are in their own movement.Such as Frida Kahlo through her art.
🌷
Period dramas are always served well on a Sunday.This scene was during a  haute couture fashion shoot that was never done before,in the streets of Paris thriving of many characters,still hardened by the second world war,that resulted into women ripping the dress in anger,anger that was represented by working class women. A red dress symbolising women to be themselves through beauty,whilst it represented greed and snobbery that pushed into the faces of grief stricken,work ridden women.

Somerset Estate, Battersea.  Colin Lucas for LCC; 1965.  The plan of these point blocks was used several times over South London, notably in the Wyndham Road Estate.  For more information on Lucas, see: see: https://misfitsarchitecture.com/2013/10/04/architecture-misfits-10-colin-lucas/. I like the towers a lot, but perhaps because I only photograph them.  Most are really starting to show their age.
I love the concrete “feature”. ©en #barbican_fan #brutalist #brutalism #modernarchitecture #modernism #modernist #londonarchitecture #urban #urbandesign #building #architecture #archilovers #archiporn #architecturelovers #concretelovers #architecture_hunter #arquitectura #london #lookup #housing #concrete #urbanplanning #housingestate #councilflats #socialhousing #postwararchitecture #postwar #betonbrut #battersea 18021

A home in Beaumaris designed by #modernistersister Sylvia Tutt and built 1962-1964. Tutt, who had no formal training, designed all four of her family homes in the beach suburb. Unfortunately, like so many modernist homes in Beaumaris, the home looks likely to be demolished to make way for a dual occupancy. Don’t let Beaumaris Modern become Beaumaris McMansion.

This is my Bundesgrenzschutz winter overseas cap made by G.u.F BRAND. This one has a metal cokade but they also had ones in cloth as well. also it is quite sunbleached and well used. can see the difference in color in the last picture. If I can remember correctly this was the first BGS item I ever got and is what got me started collecting BGS!

On June 4th, 2011, two years after the end of a decades long war, the Sri Lankan government lifted a travel ban that had prevented foreigners from visiting Jaffna, a northern city that served as ground zero for the horrifically bloody end to the war.  Living in Sri Lanka at the time, I got on one of the first buses headed north that foreigners were allowed to board.  I printed off a notice on the Ministry of Defence's website confirming the lifting of the ban and kept it with my passport, just in case.  I was the only foreigner on the overnight bus, and about three quarters of the way into the 10hr trip, the bus stopped.  Soldiers boarded, progressing slowly row by row.  They got to my row, checked my passport and told me to leave the bus, escorting me to the military checkpoint.  I looked back and no other passengers were coming.  After answering the soldiers' questions, emphasizing harmless touristy interests, I was allowed back on the bus and the journey continued into the morning.  This is a photo from that trip-- war ruins plastered with presidential photos and young kids on bikes going about their day. 2011.

Mr. Alex Katz is a New York based artist, specializing in beautifully simplified portraits and landscapes. Though influenced by American Scene artists as well as diverse elements of modernism. Katz claimed his art to be about "surface," which can be understood both in terms of his penchant for flat fields of color and clean lines, and also in the fact that his imagery is not particularly psychologically complex. His paintings make us see the world the way he sees it, clear and up close, with all but the most essential details pared away. n the nineteen-fifties, when most of the serious art being done was abstract, Katz outraged scores of artists and formalist critics by inventing new ways to paint the human figure. He has always had his own direction, which has not been the direction of mainstream art in any of the last seven decades. #AlexKatz #thegood #Mikewhitesmith #modernism #NewYorkSchool #PostWar #AmericanArt #NewYorkArtist #Art #portrait #UnitedStates #nature #painting #arttheagoshouldshow #canadiansthatknowgoodart #humanfigure #fashion #womeninart #arthistory #contemporary #contemporaryartist #newyork #newyorkartgalleries #artopaper #nature #Landscapes #agotoronto #popart #ada

He has always had his own direction, which has not been the direction of mainstream art in any of the last seven decades. #AlexKatz #thegood #Mikewhitesmith #modernism #NewYorkSchool #PostWar #AmericanArt #NewYorkArtist #Art #portrait #UnitedStates #nature #painting #arttheagoshouldshow #canadiansthatknowgoodart #humanfigure #fashion #artopaper #nature #Landscapes #agotoronto #popart #ada

‘I'm not trying to make paintings look like photos. I want to make paintings using photos as a reference, the way painters did when photography was first invented.’ .

It’s always fascinating to see Peter Doig’s journeys in memory and abstraction as he works directly from photographs, twisting and interpreting them. His prints are a lesson in long forgotten images through the glass eyes of time. .

The artwork that inspired this print ‘Haus der Bilder’ is interestingly in an upcoming auction @sothebys .

Bridging the gap in knowledge, the ‘Stabi’, one of the largest libraries in Europe, its story is entwined in the history of East & West Germany. The brutalist Berlin State Library is more than a series of concrete buildings housing priceless books & manuscripts, it remains at the centre of a debate about ownership & spoils of war. Designed by Hans Scharoun, a further refurbishment took place in 2012. The library’s story begins under a royal guiding hand in 1658, jumping forward to 1945, its huge collections were scattered, partly hidden across the country, partly destroyed, either wilfully due to the removal of certain writers or as casualties of bombing, stored in monasteries across a fallen empire, in the hands of several occupying nations. By 1946 the collections were sitting in the east or the west, far beyond their prewar home, owned by competing powers. Post reunification the collection came together, throwing up interesting issues. Beethoven & Mozart are at the heart of the German cultural legacy, the original score of Beethoven’s 8th Symphony kept in the pre-war library did not remain together. The 1st, 2nd & 4th movements are today in the Stabi, the 3rd movement is in Krakow.. The library’s Berlinka Collection remain a matter of contention. It was not clear precisely where the collection was until 1965. The Polish & East German governments (both Soviet bloc) signed an agreement which saw the return of a large collections of books to East Germany which had belonged to the Prussian State Library, however the Polish authorities did not mention the Berlinka collection (500,000 medieval manuscripts and original scores by Schumann, Brahms, Paganini and Bach) in that negotiation. In ‘77 Polish First Secretary Edward Gierek presented Erich Honecker with a gift 7 pieces of manuscript including Mozart's original score of The Magic Flute & Beethoven's notes for his Symphony No. 9, these had been in the Berlinka Collection. To this day negotiations start, stop and restart, most recently in 2014. Poland is clear in stating that Germany is still holding significant cultural items that need to be returned.
