Jacopo Carucci, called Pontormo after the Tuscan town from which he came, was one of the leaders of the Mannerist movement. A painter's son, the young Jacopo was immersed in High Renaissance values as apprentice to Leonardo da Vinci and others in Florence. The agitated emotionalism of his altarpiece in the church of San Michele Visdomini in 1518, however, signaled a dramatic departure from his...

During the rise of industry in 19th-century Scotland, Thomas Annan ranked as the preeminent photographer in Glasgow. Best known for his haunting images of tenements on the verge of demolition—often considered precursors of the documentary tradition in photography—he prodigiously recorded the people, the social landscape, and the built environment of Glasgow and its outskirts for more than...

Located near Château de Versailles, with a view of Paris and the Seine River, the château of Meudon was once among France's finest monuments. But during the 1700s, it fell into disrepair. During the French Revolution, which began in 1789, the château was ransacked and it suffered further damage in a fire of 1795. It was demolished entirely in 1803. Rather than documenting the site's actual...

"It is indeed true," wrote Albrecht Dürer, "that art is omnipresent in nature, and the true artist is he who can bring it out." The "Stag Beetle" is one of Dürer's most influential and most copied nature studies. Singling out a beetle as the focal point of a work of art was unprecedented in 1505, when most of Dürer's contemporaries believed that insects were the lowest of creatures. Dürer's...

In this double pastel portrait, the brothers Joseph and John Gulston appear close-up in half-length, standing before an expanse of wooded landscape. Francis Cotes, who was born #onthisday in 1726, captured his sitters with disarming directness. Joseph bears himself gracefully and engages the viewer with his gaze, yet he still retains the fragile self-reserve typical of an older boy. His...

During the 700s and 600s B.C., images of animals and monsters often decorated luxury items imported to Greece from the Near East. The Greeks soon began reproducing these images in their own art. Among these monsters was a half-human, half-bird creature that became linked with the Greek mythological beings known as sirens. Sirens bewitched men with song and lured them to their deaths in the...

Sitting calmly with his head turned to the side and his mouth closed, this small, hollow-cast lion looks less than ferocious. The lion originally decorated some other object, perhaps the rim of a large vessel, as is shown by an attachment pin in the bottom of his left front paw. #EndangeredSpeciesDay
