#EdFact In 1978 Ed van der Elsken’s book ‘Hallo! Een nieuwe Ed van der Elsken’ is published, featuring this photo of three young women in the Beethovenstraat in Amsterdam. It’s an iconic image that reflects Ed’s flirtatious approach: What did he say to these women, to make them turn around and smile?

Italio-Argentine artist Lucio Fontana (1899 – 1968) was #BornOnThisDay! With his ‘spatial concepts’ series, Fontana reinvented painting by questioning its very foundations. His work 'Concetto spaziale, attesa' (1966), pictured here, is an example of this. Fontana slashed the canvas with a palette knife, signifying that the canvas is not solely a base for work. He thereby draws attention to the...

The answer to today’s #GuessTheArtist is… 'Reclining Nude' (1910) by the Dutch painter Leo Gestel! Like many European artists, Gestel spends time in Paris in the early 20th century and is influenced by the latest developments in modern art, such as Fauvism and Cubism. He takes these new ideas and perspectives back to the Netherlands and, together with his contemporaries Piet Mondriaan and Jan...

“I felt it was much nicer for somebody to have something unusual in his mailbox rather than the ordinary typewritten letter. There may not be much to say, so then I’d rather put in a lot of colors and openly use the tools of my trade.” – Jean Tinguely

Though Tinguely is most famous for his impressive, kinetic machines, drawing and letter-writing both played a crucial role in his...

Love is a recurring theme in Ed van der Elsken’s oeuvre. As a street photographer, van der Elsken paid attention not to fashion or style but to capturing people’s beauty and humanity. He aimed to make a personal connection with the people he photographed, and expressed his love for people, cities, and life through his photos. No wonder he talked about an Infatuated Camera / Camera In Love......

Danish designer Verner Panton (1926-1998) was #BornOnThisDay!

Most of you got it right... The answer to today's #GuessTheArtist is The Pregnant Woman / Maternity (1913) by Marc Chagall!

In 1950, at age 25, Ed van der Elsken moves to Paris. Here he joins a group of young, self-destructive youth, who roam the streets and cafés of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district. The gloomy, somewhat depressive worldview of his peers corresponds with his own state of mind at the time, and is characteristic of his work shot in Paris. Vali Myers, the girl in the photo, soon became...
