History: Heinrich Campendonk born in 1889

Today in History: Heinrich Campendonk born in 1889

The German-born painter and graphic designer (who later became a Naturalized Dutch citizen) was born on November 3 and we like to take this opportunity to promote his poster “Die Farbe” which we are offering in our poster auction tomorrow. “Die Farbe” is an exceptionally rare, important poster advertising an exhibition devoted to ‘color.’ Printed in black-and-white, the rainbow and highlighted green area are all hand-tinted. The show itself featured some of the most important avant-garde artists of the era, including Kandinsky, Marc, Delaunay, Macke, Braque, Picasso, Klee, Gris, Naun, and Nolde. Interestingly, a list of the honorariums paid to the participants reveals that Campendonk received 560 marks for his contributions (which included this poster), while Kandinsky received a mere 200.

Today in History: Donald Brun born in 1909

Happy Birthday, Donald Brun! The Swiss graphic designer would have turned 109 today. Brun was born in Basel in 1909. During his apprenticeship as a graphic illustrator in the late 1920s, Brun celebrated his first successes as a poster artist when he won a Basel poster competition for “baths” in 1928. Between the 1930s and 1970s, Brun created hundreds of poster designs, mainly for consumer goods. Among his clients were such renowned companies as Bata, Bell, Gauloise, Persil or Swissair. His posters are marked by a subtle sense of humor and solid craftsmanship. In 1952, Brun became co-founder of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI). He passed away in Clarens in 1999.

Today in History: Robert Rauschenberg is born in 1925

93 years ago today, American painter and graphic artist, Robert Rauschenberg, was born in Port Arthur, Texas. He studied art in Kansas (1946-1947), Paris (1947) and at Black Mountain College in North Carolina under Joseph Albers (1948-1950). Rauschenberg was based in New York City and is perhaps best known for his influence on pop art of the 1960s, constantly questioning the distinction between art and everyday objects. The eclectic artist often combined sculpture and paint in his works. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, he experimented with collage and photography. Rauschenberg died from heart failure in 2008.

Today is National Boss’s Day

Today is National Boss’s Day

Back in 1958, Patricia Bays Haroski, a secretary at State Farm Insurance in Deerfield, Illinois registered “National Boss’s Day” with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. She was working for her father at the time and chose October 16 in honor of her father’s (i.e. her boss’s) birthday. Four years later, Illinois Governor, Otto Kerner, officially proclaimed Boss’s (also Bosses) Day. It became a Hallmark Holiday in 1979 with the introduction of National Boss’s Day cards.
