Today is World Television Day!

Today is World Television Day!

The United Nations General Assembly created this holiday in 1996. The inaugural celebration included the first World Television Forum, where leading media figures from the global community gathered to discuss the significance of television in today’s international issues. World Television Day highlights how communications can facilitate social and cultural development, and encourages cooperation and partnerships in international media. Since its invention in the early 1900s, television has served as a medium for communication, entertainment, and household culture. Source: punchbowl.com

Today in History: Dow Jones above 1000

Today in History: Dow Jones above 1000

In 1972, the Dow Jones closes above 1,000 for the 1st time. As reported in the NY Times the next day: “It finished at 1,003.16 for a gain of 6.09 points in what many Wall Streeters consider the equivalent of the initial breaking of the four-minute mile. … ‘ This thing has an obvious psychological effect,’ declared one brokerage-house partner. ‘It’s a hell of a news item. As for the permanence of it — well, I just don’t know.’ ”

Today in History: Raymond Savignac born in 1907

Today in History: Raymond Savignac born in 1907

We have always been fascinated with the poster art by Raymond Savignac (1907 – 2002). The French artist began his career in 1935 at the Alliance Graphique under the supervision of Cassandre. He gained fame in 1949 with the publication of his first major poster, Mon Savon. As he states in his autobiography: “I was born at the age of 41, weaned on the udder of the Monsavon cow.” Savignac’s strength was combining a complex concept in a simple design, combined with humor. He is said to be among France’s most influential poster artists of the past fifty years.

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: NYC subway opens in 1904

Today in History: NYC subway opens in 1904

114 years ago today, New York City Mayor George McClellan inaugurates the city’s new rapid transit system, the subway. The original line ran approximately nine miles through 28 stations from City Hall north to Grand Central Station, then west to Times Square and up the West Side to 145th Street. The general public was invited to travel the new train at 7 pm on that day when more than 100,000 people paid a nickel to take their first rider under Manhattan. The New York City subway soon became America’s largest underground train network. Today, it has 26 lines, more than 450 stations in operation and some 4 ½ million daily passengers.
