There's nothing in the world like the love of a parent. 💞

A mother and child are portrayed with vivid intensity in this compassionate rendering, contrasting the mother's direct gaze with the charming appeal of the baby's chubby face. The rapid brushwork used to describe the clothing and the swaddling blanket contributes to the freshness of this depiction.

The American artist Julius Gari Melchers studied in Paris before settling in Holland, where he specialized in depictions of peasant life, inspired by contemporary Dutch painters of the Hague School. In 1906, "Mother and Child" was exhibited at both the Paris Salon and the Art Institute.

See this painting on view in Gallery 273.

Lynne Mapp Drexler was an American painter best known for her synthesis of Post-Impressionism and Abstract Expressionism in her depictions of landscapes. With precise yet expressionist brushstrokes, a bright palette, and acute focus on composition, Drexler’s work calls to mind the paintings of Henri Matisse. Along with her peers Jane Freilicher, Lois Dodd, and Jane Wilson, Drexler’s idiosyncratic style of representation never received the same attention as her male counterparts. Born on May 21, 1928 in Newport News, VA, she studied at the College of William and Mary before moving to New York. While there, the artist studied under Robert Motherwell and Hans Hofmann at Hunter College. Motherwell’s technical and philosophical art instruction, as well as Hofmann’s dynamic teaching of color theory and composition, were influential to Drexler’s development of her own style. She spent much of her life between New York and Monhegan Island, ME, which became the subject of her later paintings. Drexler died on December 30, 1999 in Monhegan Island, ME. Her works are in the collections of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Portland Museum of Art in Maine, among others.

After seven years behind the Daily Show desk, Trevor Noah signed off the Comedy Central flagship show for the final time on Thursday.

“This is random to some, but special shout-out to Black women,” a visibly emotional Noah said. “I’ve often been credited with having these grand ideas. People are like, ‘Oh Trevor, you’re so smart,’ and I’m like ‘Who do you think teaches me?’”

A reporter asked Cristiano Ronaldo: Why does your mother still live with you? Why not build her a house?
Cristiano Ronaldo: "My mother raised me by sacrificing her life for me. She slept hungry so I could eat at night. We had no money at all. She worked 7 days a week and evenings as a cleaner to buy my first football equipment so that I could become a player, my complete success is dedicated to her. And as long as I live, she will always be by my side and have everything I can give her. She is my refuge and my greatest gift.'
Money does not make people wealthy. In fact, some people are so poor all they have is money.
True wealth is found in gratitude for the gifts and blessings in life.

Am 7. Dezember 1970 fiel Bundeskanzler W***y Brandt vor dem Ghettomahnmal in Warschau auf die Knie. Eine Geste, die um die Welt ging. In seinen „Erinnerungen“ schreibt Brandt 1989: „Am Abgrund der deutschen Geschichte und unter der Last der Millionen Ermordeten tat ich, was Menschen tun, wenn die Sprache versagt.“

Unsere wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin Kristina Meyer hat anlässlich des 50. Jahrestags des Kniefalls am 5. Dezember 2020 einen Vortrag gehalten, den wir an dieser Stelle empfehlen möchten.

The opposite of schadenfreude is "freudenfreude" — the bliss you feel when someone else succeeds, even if it doesn't directly involve you. The benefits are plentiful but don't always come easily. Here's how to experience more freudenfreude.


“I believe the ability to think is blessed. If you can think about a situation, you can deal with it. The big struggle is to keep your head clear enough to think.”

— Richard Pryor


“I would rather be a Negro in America than a citizen in any other land." - Edith Sampson

in 1962, Edith Sampson was sworn in as the first African American woman to serve as a judge in Illinois. Sampson was one of 8 children born to Louis Spurlock and Elizabeth A. McGruder in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

In 1950, President Truman appointed Sampson as an alternate U.S. delegate to the United Nations, making her the first African American to officially represent the United States at the United Nations. Sampson easily won her bid for associate judge of the Municipal Court of Chicago in 1962, then went on to become an associate judge for the Circuit Court of Cook County in 1966.

Sampson served the state of Illinois and her country in several roles over the course of five decades.

Lyonel Feininger (German-American, 1871-1956).
“Gelmeroda, (Gothic church near Weimar, Germany)”, 1936, oil on canvas, 101x81 cm, Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY.
In his many images of the fourteenth-century structure, the artist explored the building as a physical connector between the past and the present. Here, he adopts the angled fragmentation of form and space found in Cubism and Italian Futurism to give a sense of spiritual energy and transcendence. In 1937, one year after this work was completed, N**i officials included Feininger’s art in the notorious Degenerate Art exhibition, prompting him flee to the US.

Romy Schneider was born on 23 September 1938 in Vienna, Austria into a family of actors. Making her film debut at the age of 15, her breakthrough came two years later in the very popular trilogy Sissi (1955). Her mother, supervising her daughter's career, immediately approved Romy's participation in Christine (1958), the remake of Max Ophüls's Playing at Love (1933), where Magda Schneider once starred herself. During the shooting, she fell in love with her co-star Alain Delon and eventually moved with him to Paris. At that time, she started her international career collaborating with famous directors such as Luchino Visconti and Orson Welles. After Delon had broken up with her in 1964, she married Harry Meyen shortly after. Although she gave birth to a boy, David-Christopher, their relationship was difficult, so they divorced in 1975. Being unsatisfied with her personal life, she turned to alcohol and drugs, but her cinematic career -especially in France- remained intact. She was the first actress, receiving the new created César Award as "Best Actress" for her role in That Most Important Thing: Love (1975). Three years later, she was awarded again for A Simple Story (1978). After a short marriage to her former secretary Daniel Biasini, being the father of her daughter Sarah Biasini, she suffered the hardest blow of her life when her son was impaled on a fence in 1981. She never managed to recover from this loss and died on 29 May 1982 in Paris. Although it was suggested she committed su***de caused by an overdose of sleeping pills, she was declared to have died from cardiac arrest.
