  • Iconic Posters to Celebrate the International Human Rights Day

    Iconic Posters to Celebrate the International Human Rights Day

    A selection of posters that highlight different rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, published on December 10, 72 years ago The right to life, private property, and the use of your mother tongue. The right to work, education, digital inclusion, and housing. The right to fair and equitable treatment by the State, to a better distribution of income, to be able to consume and participate in the economy, to enjoy social security. The 30 articles –plus a preamble– that make up the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a historic civilizing landmark published by the United Nations General Assembly on December 10, 1948, contain some of the basic principles that have guided –or should guide– human and social relations since the Enlightenment. Since these rights are often not respected, each year the celebration of International Human Rights Day, instituted in 1950, has a markedly vindictive character. And, for some time now, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights has begun to propose official themes each year. This 2020, for example, the slogan is Recover Better - Stand up for Human Rights.

    10 Famous Modern Artists You Should Know

    Discover 10 famous modern artists who reshaped art history. What is Modern Art? Modern art, spanning the late 19th century to the 1960s, is a testament to creative rebellion. Rejecting traditional forms, artists of this era embraced experimentation with new materials, techniques, and ideas. Movements like Impressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism emerged, prioritizing composition, color, and technique to portray the world through abstraction and experimentation. We present 10 artists who have left an enduring mark on the art world, defying norms and serving as beacons of inspiration for generations to come. Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) The Revolutionary Brushstroke Often hailed as "the father of us all", Cézanne's legacy is deeply woven into the fabric of modern art. His experimental brushstrokes and use of color planes revolutionized Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, and Cubism. Departing from traditional forms, Cézanne's bold and expressive strokes created a sense of texture and depth, influencing artists like Van Gogh and Gauguin.
