Gustav Klimt, Death and Life (1910)
From our post on Kehinde Wiley: The World Stage: Jamaica. Wiley is known for his paintings which present young black people mimicking poses from historical portraits. In this collection, poses were taken from the 17th and 18th century British portraiture. This series is described as a restaging of Jamaica’s colonial history, which transforms the race and gender of the traditional art-historical hero to reflect the contemporary urban environment.

Based on research from Mason Currey’s Daily Rituals: How Artists Work, Podio created beautiful charts that show how some of modern society’s greatest thinkers, writers, artists and philosophers spent their days. It begins with the earliest risers and reveals how much time each of them spent sleeping, working, socializing, relaxing, exercising and at their day jobs or doing administrative stuff like managing their holdings or paying taxes.

Either that or Bey should have rushed the stage and told him she’d let him speak but Kanye had the best record.
I TAKE IT BACK
THIS IS WHAT I NEEDED
