Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess - Bobby Fischer

Natural History of the Future: What the Laws of Biology Tell Us About the Destiny of the Human Species - Rob Dunn

<p>A leading ecologist argues that if humankind is to survive on a fragile planet, we must understand and obey its iron laws.</p> <p>Over the past century, our species has made unprecedented technological innovations with which we have sought to control nature.

O´Keeffe

Publikace: O´Keeffe. Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986) was a major figure in modern American art for some seven decades. Importantly, her fame was not associated with shifting art styles and trends, but rather with her own unique vision, based on finding essential and abstract forms in nature. O’Keeffe’s primary subjects were landscapes, flowers, and bones, each explored in successive series over several years. Certain works went on for decades, producing 12 or more variations of an original image. Among these, O’Keeffe’s magnified pictures of calla lilies and irises are her most famous. Enlarging the tiniest petals to fill an entire canvas, O’Keeffe created a proto-abstract vocabulary of shapes...
