Il y a 28 ans, disparaissait Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock

Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock KBE (August 13, 1899 – April 29, 1980) was an iconic and highly influential film director and producer, who pioneered many techniques in the suspense and thriller genres.

Il y a 104 ans, naissait Willem de Kooning

Willem de Kooning (April 24, 1904 – March 19, 1997) was an abstract expressionist painter, born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

These paintings, such as "Bolton Landing" (1957) and "Door to the River" (1960) bear broad brushstrokes and calligraphic tendencies similar to works of his contemporary Franz Kline. In 1963, De Kooning moved permanently to East... [Lire la suite]
