Tickets with my granddaughter, November 11. :thumbsup:
I've seen Van Gogh exhibitions before since I lived in WDC, but I really want to see this. I asked the kid about me flying over to see the exhibition with me. He and his partner had already seen it, but was happy for me to visit. We miss each other. Then the covid numbers erupted again, much of it relating to flying off island. :( I hope to be able to see it.

A sorrowful Frida Kahlo self-portrait which shows her cheating husband, Diego Rivera, in the centre of her forehead, is expected to smash auction records as it becomes the most valuable work of Latin American art ever publicly offered for sale.

Sotheby’s announced on Wednesday it was offering for sale a 1949 painting titled Diego y yo (Diego and I) with an estimate in excess of $30m.

If it achieves anywhere near that it will break the Latin American artist auction record, currently held by a painting of Rivera’s.

Aside from the eye-spinning price and the talk of records, the painting itself is a fascinating one, shining light on the Mexican artist and her tumultuous relationship with Rivera.

I can just see the lady Japanese puffer fish when she gets a load of that masterpiece.

"Oh, Bobby! You made that for little ol' me? You're amazing! You're so awesome! You're my favorite Japanese puffer fish ever!"

:batting: :lovestruck:

'Course, they can't roll around on the bed having sex, they'll mess up the artwork! :shock:

those are the fish that make such great sushi aren't they? Just make sure they are properly prepared or else it will kill you?

Maybe that is another kind of puffer fish though.

The video caused me to think of the wonder of watching how various birds can manoeuvre with their amazing skills developed over the ages. I’ve seen film of whales, dolphins, flying fish, and many others, but it’s stunning a fish could develop such an intricate behaviour.

Atomic veil to save fading Van Gogh sunflowers
Tom Whipple, Science Editor
Monday October 18 2021, 12.01am BST, The Times

Vincent van Gogh’s sunflowers are wilting. Each time a photon of light hits the paint on the petals, there is a chance of it sparking a reaction. After 130 years of photons there have been many chances — the sunflowers are now withered and faded.

A graphene film could have protected them, scientists have found. Researchers inspired by the plight of Van Gogh’s paintings have shown that spraying an atom-thick film of the carbon can block damage from sunlight while remaining invisible.
