Gordon Parks, Black classroom, Mobile, Alabama, 1956, (1956).
Virginia-based Korean artist Bohyun Yoon’s suspended installation, Unity, takes fragmented pieces of dolls, hangs them in midair, and gives them suggestive shadow forms. It’s a genius plan that has been executed perfectly. The body parts alone create a slightly disturbing environment, but the shadows transform the piece into something much more provocative and meaningful.

The Dream by Henri Rousseau, 1910
Created in the same year as his death, The Dream was Rousseau’s last painting, which was debuted only a few months before his untimely death. Upon its debut, Guillaume Apollinaire, referencing the negative reviews of previous years, exclaimed that this year, there would be no ridicule, as the painting exuded sheer beauty. With this piece, Rousseau brought together the exotic and the ordinary, the jungle and the couch, and combined the two to form a juxtaposition of composition which engages and intrigues. It is perhaps fitting that this was his last painting before his death, as it was his masterpiece.

The Concert in the Egg by Hieronymus Bosch ca. 1475-1480
“Legend has it that Scarlatti had a pet cat called Pulcinella, who was described by the composer as prone to walking across the keyboard, always curious about its sounds.
On one occasion, according to the story, Scarlatti wrote down a phrase from one of these “improvisation sessions”, and used it as a lead motif in a fugue.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat%27s_fugue
