Vernissage. O artista americano moderno Morgan Weistling.

 Um conhecido artista americano Morgan Westing (Morgan Weistling) começou a familiarizar-se com os conceitos básicos de arte em uma idade adiantada com seu pai, por causa da guerra, não terminou o artista. Devido ao fato de Morgan, muito mais jovem do que seu irmão e irmã, ele começou seu treinamento artístico em 19 meses. Seu pai se sentou com ele de joelhos à noite, ensinou-o a desenhar e usar sua imaginação. "Meu pai e eu estamos conectados juntos desenhando e conversando uns com os outros com imagens".


O pai de Morgan tinha um talento real para contar histórias sob a forma de quadrinhos e deu a seu filho a habilidade de uma narrativa natural.

"Foi então que a pintura tornou-se minha segunda língua". O amor ao desenho empurrou Morgan para estudar livros sobre arte, que seu pai adquiriu anos antes para si mesmo. Autores como Andrew Loomis, Vandepolp e Bridgman estavam cada vez mais abrindo portas para ele no mundo da pintura. Estes eram livros importantes e necessários, no entanto, o futuro artista teve que ir à escola de artistas. Aos 12 anos, Westling estava decidido a seguir todo o curso, porque tinha certeza de que não havia mais necessidade de escola.


Mas aos 15 anos, para que suas pesquisas no campo de anatomia, desenho e pintura se movessem na direção certa, Morgan precisava de um mentor. Eles se tornaram um ilustrador aposentado chamado Fred Fixler. Sua escola foi chamada "Art Institute Brandes" e foi dedicada a uma coisa: aprender a tirar da natureza. Mesmo enquanto estudava e trabalhava em uma loja de arte, um bom dia, um ilustrador proeminente entrou na loja. Westling mostrou-lhe o trabalho de estudante e no dia seguinte ele se viu trabalhando em uma das principais agências de arte de Hollywood.

Hoje Morgan Westling é um artista bem conhecido , seu trabalho pode ser visto em muitas galerias dos EUA e da Europa.

French ballerina CLEO DE MEROD: "Ballet is my life".


Cleo de Merode (Cléo de Mérode, full name Cleopatra Diane de Merode, English Cléopatra Diane de Mérode, September 27, 1875, Paris - October 11, 1966, ibid.) - French dancer, the star of the Beautiful Age.

One of the greatest Parisian beauties, a representative of the true Austrian nobility, Cleopatra Diana de Meroda was born in Paris in 1875.
Her father, Carl Freiherr von Merod (1853-1909), lived in Mödling (near Vienna) and was a famous landscape painter.
Being a painter, he was the son of the famous Belgian aristocratic family de Merod.
"Cleopatra Diana" - so called the girl at birth.
The names of the Egyptian queen and the Roman goddess came very close to the girl who will become the embodiment of the beauty of her time. But most often it was called simply "Cleo".
At the age of eight, Cleo began teaching at the dance school and at eleven she was already dancing professionally.
She later recalled: "Still quite a child, but already quite high, I appeared in the play" Thais ", where with several of her friends danced intermezzo. We played the role of young actresses from the courtesan suite, and danced around her with a rose in one hand and a mask in the other. "




Cleo de Merod graduated from the ballet school at the National Opera in Paris.
At the Paris World Exhibition in 1900 she showed "Cambodian dances".


I danced in the Folies-Bergeres. She performed in Hamburg, Berlin, St. Petersburg, Budapest, New York.
She was very small, and because of her small size and great abilities for ballet at the age of 13 she was chosen to perform in "Choryhée" - one of the most prestigious ballet performances in Paris.



For this performance she also came up with a new hairstyle - a bando - uneducated and unblocked hair, bound and pinned to the back of the head in a bun.
Parisians liked this hairstyle, and Cleo entered with her in history - her hairdo was called her name - the hairstyle "a la Cleo de Merode" became popular all over the world!
Russia was no exception. At the opening of the department store at the end of XIX - "Mur and Merliz", which everyone now knows as TSUM, all the cashiers were in hairstyles "a la Cleo de Merod".



Cleo de Merode was not only beautiful, but also natural and elegant, in society she usually appeared in pale decadent toilets without excesses.
While all the secular ladies of that time, without fail, curled their hair into curls, Cleo allowed herself to go out with her hair loose, which was considered the height of vulgarity and indecency.




A lot of postcards depicting Cleo de Mérod, this beautiful Frenchwoman, who perpetuated her name with a smooth, straight-fitting hairdo that completely covered her ears, was issued all over the world.
Women's heads all over the world paid tribute to this fashionable hairstyle "Cleo de Merod," but they said that the beauty herself had to resort to it because she had cut off half of her left ear.


In 1896, at the age of 23, she was elected to dance, the role of Frina in the theater of opera and ballet in Bordeaux, and it was there that Leopold II, the King of Belgium, drew attention to her.


She shocked his imagination. Leopold did not like music, but he went to ballet and opera, mainly to get acquainted with the scenes with the actresses.
Cleo was 38 years younger than Leopold, was considered one of the first beauties of France and became one of the first in the history of photomodels: her photographs in exotic outfits decorated postcards and pages of magazines.

"Cheese is strong, hot, nourishing ..." Hippocrates

Well, what kind of French wine without cheese?
So here you have to the New Year's table and cheese.))


"Cheese is strong, hot, nourishing ..."
Strong - because it's very close to being born;
Nutritious - because it represents the remainder of the most meaty part of milk;
Hot - because it is fat ... "

History of the discovery of cheese

There is a legend about the pioneer of cheese, a certain shepherd who supposedly went to distant pastures, stocking food, poured milk into a bag of sheep's stomach.
Under the influence of warm rays of the sun, enzymes and whipping in time with the movement of the shepherd, the milk was transformed into cheese.

"Lunch that does not end with cheese is like a beautiful woman with one eye," said Jean-Anselm Brilla-Savarin, a French lawyer, politician and culinary expert.
And he was absolutely right, because in our days it is not possible to imagine a meal without such a tasty and useful product!
In the history of the emergence of cheese and its marching along the planet, there are many interesting facts. Here are just some of them:


1. There is a legend according to which the inventor of cheese was a certain merchant.
Once, on his way, he took milk, which was poured into a container from a lamb's stomach.
After some time he arrived at the site and found that the milk was divided into whey and dense mass, which became the basis of modern cheese.



2. About 1 kg of milk is required to prepare 1 kg of cheese.
  But cheese is prepared not only from milk: there are cheeses made of soy, peas, calf or pig, from sour cream and even sugar with ice.


3. There are more than 1000 varieties of cheese in the world.
For the preparation of some, ordinary cow milk is required, while for others it is milk of buffalo. There are cheeses with a noble mold of a blue shade, and there is also a black mold. In addition, for ripening different kinds of cheeses it takes from 1 day to 10 years of aging.



4. Cheese is a very nutritious and easily digestible product. It contains up to 25% of proteins, up to 60% of milk fat and up to 3.5% of minerals, not counting table salt. In addition, it is a real storehouse of useful substances. The cheese contains vitamins A, D, E, B1, B2, PP, C, pantothenic acid, phosphorus and calcium.


5. During the ripening of cheese, harmless bacteria are formed in it, which produce gas.
Bubbles with gas, being released, leave in the cheese the famous holes, which specialists call "eyes".


6. The largest head of cheese weighing 721 kg was produced in the Altai Territory and presented at the "Cheese Festival" in Barnaul on September 14, 2007.



7. The original name of the Parmesan cheese is Parmigiano Reggiano. It is produced exclusively in several regions: in the north of Italy and in Germany. Because it is in these places that the grass grows, suitable for feeding cows, selected as producers of raw dairy raw materials. Even if the cheese is manufactured using identical technologies, but in another region, Parmesan, it can not be called legally.


8. They say that it was the soft Camembert cheese that contributed to the birth of Salvador Dalí's famous "Flowing Clock". Once, having tasted this cheese at dinner, the artist crouched in front of the unfinished canvas, extinguished the light and began to reflect on the wonderful taste of Camembert. It was then that he saw the miraculous vision of the "spreading time"
