For 21 years, daily sketches — a kind of business card of one of the most influential corporations in the world. We have chosen doodles of different years, dedicated to artists and women artists, and share information about the process of creating “funny pictures”. Is it art?

In 1998, Google co-founders Larry page and Sergey Brin went to the Burning Man forum and wanted to tell the world about their trip. So they put the festival icon under the second letter Of the logo that greets visitors on their company’s homepage. “Founding fathers” of the search engine considered his message about the absence of a public insider joke.

So began “doodles from Google” (Google Doodles) – although the company, which at that time operated only a few months, has not even been registered.

Impressionism and Spain, or what happened in Spanish art after Goya and before Picasso

If you don’t Google, how many Spanish artists of the XIX century will you name? And the Spanish Impressionists? Even sophisticated art lovers will remember is that of Joaquin Sorolla. Much easier is the case with the eras before and after — there and Velasquez, and Goya, and El Greco with Surbaran, and then Picasso and Dali. The Museum of Russian impressionism undertakes to fill this time gap and to open for the audience the names of Spanish artists who created amazing works at the intersection of national tradition and modern artistic trends of the second half of the XIX century.

The Museum of Russian impressionism together with the cultural Foundation Aurea Cultura I Art opens the exhibition “Impressionism and Spanish art”on October 10. It will feature 60 paintings, sculpture and graphics of 18 Spanish artists who were participants in the Grand revolution in art, who lived in Montmartre, participated in the exhibitions of the Paris Salon, in the exhibitions of the French Impressionists, returned home and became the harbingers of the new art.
