Three months after a statue of a defiant little girl was installed facing New York's Charging Bull statue, an artist has installed yet another statue in protest: A small pug peeing on the girl's leg. Though his work was condemned as an anti-feminist backlash, the statue's creator Alex Gardega insisted he's just making a point about how it feels to have one's statue toyed with.

Wall Street's iconic Charging Bull statue (which is actually on lower Broadway) has an interesting and storied past, and now thanks to the recent placement of another statue - a little girl standing in front of the Bull in defiance - it has an interesting and storied present as the Bull's sculptor pitches a royal hissy about this slight to his artistic statement.

The art wags over at New York Magazine, of course, think both works are trite pieces of shit.

On 26 April 1937, Nazi German and Italian bombers attacked the Basque city of Guernica. Over the course of three hours, they destroyed three-quarters of the ancient town, killing and wounding hundreds.

The raid was 'unparalleled in military history,' according to reports at the time- and it inspired one of the most famous anti-war paintings in history.

Pablo Picasso (25 October 1881 - 8 April 1973) is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. He is known for co-founding the Cubist movement, the invention of assemblage, the co-invention of collage, and for the wide variety of styles that he helped develop and explore.

Picasso was exceptionally prolific throughout his long lifetime. The total number of artworks he produced has been estimated at 50,000; comprising 1,885 paintings, 1,228 sculptures, 2,880 ceramics, roughly 12,000 drawings, many thousands of prints, and numerous tapestries and rugs.
Of those thousands of paintings were a number of self-portraits through the years that often reflected the various periods of his artistic career. Here, you can find 14 self-portraits from ages 15 - 90.

A fore-edge painting is decoration painted on the edges of a book's pages for beautification. The fore-edge of a book is the fourth edge - not the spine, the top, or the bottom edge, but the outside edge that a reader would use to thumb through the pages.

David Roy's kinetic wood sculptures are a symphony of movement, but the man who made them didn't always consider himself an artist. A one-time physics major and mainframe programmer, David abandoned the sciences, threw practicality to the wind, and instead, started his own company, "Wood That Works." Today, from a small Ashford, Connecticut wood shop, he sells his wares for up to $4,000 a piece.

Teaching art history online can be tough, despite a wealth of tools and technologies it's difficult to create an environment that compares to a great teacher who can make artworks engaging to a live audience. However, this new interactive exhibit of Hieronymus Bosch's famous Garden of Earthly Delights completely nails it. This is the internet we were promised.
