Today is (usually) National Tax Day (in the USA)

April 15 of each year is National Tax Day. As a result of the Coronavirus, the date was moved to July 15 in 2020 and to May 17 for 2021. In the United States, Tax Day is a term for the day on which individual income tax returns are due to the federal government. Income tax was first collected in The Untied States in 1862 to fund the Civil War. It was deemed unconstitutional due to not being apportioned with conformity across the states. The United States once again enacted income tax with the 16th Amendment in 1913. At that time, the filing deadline was March 1. In 1918 the deadline was changed to March 15 and then in 1955 for the most recent change, the filing deadline was moved to April 15th. Source: nationaldaycalendar.com.

Today in History: Victor Vasarely born in 1908

Today in History: Victor Vasarely born in 1908
The Hungarian-French artist Victor Vasarely (born: Gyözö Vásárhelyi ) was born in Pecs, Hungary, in 1908, Vasarely began his artistic training in Budapest in the late 1920s. In 1928, he studied the concepts of the Bauhaus working under Sandor Bortnyk at the Mühely Art School. Vasarely moved to Paris in 1930 and became an independent graphic designer. His early work was characterized by strong black and white contrasts. In the late 1940s, Vasarely developed his own geometric abstract style exploiting the deception of the human eye using forms of geometry and color nuances to trigger striking spatial effects. This led to the formulation of the principles of the short-lived Op Art movement in the early 1950s for which Vasarely is probably best known. In 1970, Vasarely opened the first museum dedicated to his art in Gordes, France (it closed in 1996). In 1976, he founded the Fondation Vasarely in Aix-en-Provence (housed in a building designed by Vasarely). In 1976, the Vasarely Museum was established in the artist’s birth-town of Pécs. A second museum in Zichy Palace in Budapest followed in 1987. Victor Vasarely died in Paris on March 15, 1997.

Happy 91st Birthday, Günther Kieser !

Günther Kieser, 1972

Happy 91st Birthday, Günther Kieser !

Günther Kieser was born in 1930 in Kronberg, near Frankfurt. Trained at the Werkkunstschule in Offenbach, Kieser began his career as a free-lance artist in 1949 and founded a studio with Hans Michel in 1952. The two artists worked on projects for the German Mail Service and the Hesse radio network and started creating posters for Lippmann & Rau, founders of the first German Jazz concert agencies. Over the next decade, Kieser and Michel would design posters for the concerts by Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie, Oscar Peterson, and John Coltrane.

When his partnership with Michel ended in 1962, Kieser continued to work primarily for Lippmann & Rau, producing posters that would become fixtures in the music scene. His posters were displayed in concert halls, bars and on billboards. The artist is perhaps most famous for his 1969 Jimi Hendrix Experience poster which became a symbol for a new generation.

Kieser joined the Deutscher Werkbund (German Work Federation) in 1956 and became a member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale (AGI) in 1964. In 1981, he became a professor for Visual Communication at the Bergische Universität in Wuppertal, a position he held until 1992. Kieser has won numerous international awards, his work has been exhibited worldwide and his posters are part of every important museum collection..

Today in History: Lucian Bernhard born in 1883

Lucian Bernhard (March 15, 1883 – May 29, 1972) was a German graphic and type designer during the first half of the twentieth century. He was influential in helping create the design style known as Plakatstil (Poster Style), which used reductive imagery and flat-color as well as Sachplakat (‘object poster’) which restricted the image to advertising simply the object and its brand name. Among his most famous works were poster designs for Stiller shoes, Manoli cigarettes, and Priester matches.
