 Dune Landscape by Moonlight,1635, oil on oak by Adriaen Brouwer, Flemish, 1605-1638. Staatliche Museen, Berlin, Germany.
 Active in Flanders in the 17th century, Brouwer concentrated on expressing human emotions of pain and fear. He works carry themes of debauchery, drunkenness and foolishness. 
 A prolific painter, many of Brouwer’s works were among those destroyed or listed as missing after World War II. If a painting was not in its original location, it was listed as missing even though it might have been in another gallery.

Happy 147th birthday to Wassily Kandinsky!Born on this day in 1866, Kandinsky’s art and theoretical writings were instrumental to the development of abstraction in the early twentieth century. This lithograph from the Blanton’s permanent collection was made during the artist’s first year as a professor at the Bauhaus, and stands out as one of the few nonfigurative works in a portfolio that includes Surrealist, Cubist, and Futurist works. Using shards of primary color, overlapping geometric shapes, and competing gestural strokes, Kandinsky exploded the idea that expression and content in art depend on the figure. Distributed throughout Europe and the United States, the portfolio of which this lithograph is a part spread revolutionary ideas about the definition and function of art in an increasingly democratic and global society.
