Wikipedia flooded with women artists

With the work of women writers around the world who crowd-sourced together, entries about women artists were added to Wikipedia to help tip the scales of information about artists available on the internet.
Here's a new entry - Dorrit Black!

A new Vincent Van Gogh painting has been discovered!

Vincent said: “Yesterday, at sunset, I was on a stony heath, where very small, twisted oaks grow, in the background a ruin on the hill, and wheat fields in the valley. It was romantic, it couldn’t be more so, à la Monticelli, the sun was pouring its very yellow rays over the bushes and the ground, absolutely a shower of gold. And all the lines were beautiful; the whole scene had charming nobility.”

Photography and the American Civil War. What daguerreotypes and tintypes are in your collections?

Photography was a brand new method of documentation during the Civil War, yet today these images are still fresh, and quite poignant. Daguerreotypes, tintypes, and other methods of capturing images were used in this amazing exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.
