- “Gloomy Premonitions of What Must Come to Pass” reads the title of this #FranciscoGoya print, the first plate of the Disasters of War series, and a warning for a future already past. #SergeiEisenstein similarly muddles time in his mysterious short film, Romance Sentimentale, with montaged quick cuts of nature’s rhythms, ticking clocks, a woman’s plaintive song, and Rodin sculpture. Physical time is repeatedly noted, but its logic not obeyed; as the film progresses non-narratively, imagined time unfolds non-linearly. #RobertLongo picks up the thread in his depiction of an ever-growing Banyan tree, considered a sacred symbol of immortality in many southeast Asia religions. #proofbkm

- Open today, Rodin at the Brooklyn Museum: The Body in Bronze highlights the extraordinary tension in #AugusteRodin’s work between the figure itself and abstract form, allowing the fluid contours, animated surfaces, and emotional presence of these bronzes to emerge fully. Our 58 bronze sculptures are presented as part of #Rodin100, a worldwide series of major Rodin exhibitions commemorating the centennial of the artist's death. See these expressive works from the Brooklyn Museum collection all together now through April 22.

- #RobertLongo’s charcoal drawings resist traditional expectations of medium. His process often begins with a photographic image found online, which he will amplify, re-compose, or juxtapose with other images before translating into charcoal. ⇨ In layers of fragile black dust, Longo builds remarkably sculptural, meticulously detailed forms at an imposing scale unusual for drawing. ⇨ The striking finished artwork is a meditation on how we digest images—and what they tell us about the world—using technical innovation to emphasize their power and complexity. #proofbkm

- A little #bluesday inspiration from #bkmeuropeanart: #BorisAnisfeld challenged the perspective of traditional landscape painting in this canvas, by shattering the illusion of depth and flattening its elements—the clouds, the mountain’s edge, a ship, and sailboats along the horizon—onto a single plane. The scene is painted from Aiou-Dagh Mountain in the Crimean Peninsula. Anisfeld came to the United States in 1917 after the October Revolution, and within a year the Brooklyn Museum hosted his first American one-artist show. #infinitebluebkm 🔵⠀⠀

- The Silla kingdom occupied part of eastern Korea for almost 700 years then conquered most of the peninsula and continued to rule for another 300 years. Their most distinctive artistic legacy is gold jewelry that they buried in royal tombs: towering crowns and substantial ear ornaments, all covered in fluttering spangles. These knock-out earrings are decorated with patterns of tiny gold balls. The technique, called granulation, was developed in the ancient Near East and traveled from there across the Silk Road to east Asia. #artsofkorea #한국미술 ⠀

- In recent years, artist #RobertLongo has amplified his focus on chronicling politicized current events—much like this depiction of riot police at one of the first Black Lives Matter protests in Ferguson, Missouri—making charcoal drawings at a scale that can capture the poignancy and, at times, perverse beauty, of a transient moment. Join Longo and scholar Hal Foster next Thursday 11/16 for a discussion exploring how art historical discourses on image-making have found a renewed urgency in a moment embroiled in “fake news,” iconoclasm, and the desire for representational justice.

- There’s an aspect of an artifact’s display that is intentionally not obvious, but it involves meticulous engineering and creativity, and it’s vital to making every exhibition possible: mountmaking. In the #BKMConservation lab, mountmaker Mike Mandina works behind the scenes in consultation with conservators and exhibition designers to create custom mounts for Museum collection objects like this Egyptian Royal Ka limestone fragment, currently featured in #SoulfulCreatures.
