josephkopta Mad-crazy blazing brilliant, wholly unexpected canvas by Miguel Cabrera in the #PaintedInMexico show at @lacma, titled #TheDivineSpouse, ca. 1750, from the Fundación Cultural Daniel Liebsohn, Mexico City. From the catalogue: "The Divine Spouse reclining in a lush garden is one of the most imaginative subjects of 18th-century Mexico, alluding to Divine Love. Mystical gardens were visual allegories that referenced monastic life, and they aimed to inspire perfect virtue among cloistered nuns. Hidden among the bed of flowers are symbols of the Passion of Christ, such as the ladder used to take Christ's body from the cross, the Veil of Veronica, and the Titulus Crucis (a relic of the true cross). Jesus is crowned by angels and souls in heaven, who promise a place to virtuous women who follow the counsels inscribed among the flowers."

ilcmuseum This is Jon Bon Jovi’s life cast. Interesting guessing with mostly the ‘J’ names, Jean, John and Jon. Musician, actor and record producer, John Francis Bongiovi Jr., was born in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, in 1962. John’s music career began at age 13, when he played guitar and piano with his first band ‘Raze.’ By 16, he and David Bryan formed a band called ‘Atlantic City Expressway,’ which led to performances in nightclubs. His first professional recording session (credited as John Bongiovi) happened the following year. He was working, sweeping the floors in his cousin Tony Bongiovi’s New York City recording studio, ‘The Power Station,’ when Tony recommended him for a song during a record session. Record producer ‘Meco’ was in-house producing ‘Christmas in the Stars: The Star Wars Christmas Album.’ Meco agreed to include the young musician and John, as he was known then, sang lead vocals on the song ‘R2-D2 We Wish You A Merry Christmas.’ In June, 1982, John (now Jon Bon Jovi) recorded a song called ‘Runaway.’ It was turned down by several record companies before Jon visited the rock radio station WAPP. They offered to include it on air in their local talent compilation. The song became an instant hit. That led to signing with Mercury Records and the formation of a new band. The band eventually needed a name and Jon suggested ‘Johnny Electric.’ However, they decided to follow the trend of naming a group after the lead, like ‘Van Halen,’ and thus became ‘Bon Jovi.’ In total the band has produced 13 studio albums. The third one, ‘Slippery When Wet,’ was not only their breakout album but continues to be their best-selling. The fourth album, ‘New Jersey,’ released in 1988, had five top-10 hits on Billboard’s Hot-100, more than any other hard rock/glam metal album to date. Worldwide, the band ‘Bon Jovi’ has sold more than 130 million albums, making them one of the most successful of all time. Along with his music, Jon Bon Jovi is a successful actor, appearing in 14 films and television shows like ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘Ally McBeal.’ #reveal #jonbonjovi #musician #famous #bonjovi #hardrock #glammetal #museumcollection #plaster #lifecast #lifemask #ilcmuseum #ILCM
