Battlefield souvenirs go on display as Windsor Castle marks 200th anniversary of Waterloo

Napoleon's cloak, taken from the defeated Emperor's fleeing baggage train; a chair made from the tree that marked the Duke of Wellington's command post on the battlefield; and one of George IV's most prized possessions – a table commissioned by Napoleon to immortalise his reign – are among the unique artefacts from the Royal Collection that will go on display at Windsor Castle to mark the 200th anniversary of the momentous battle. Waterloo at Windsor: 1815 – 2015, a special exhibition and themed visit opening at the Castle this Saturday (31 January), brings together contemporary prints, drawings, maps and extraordinary 'souvenirs' from the battle. Many were acquired by George, Prince Regent (the future George IV), and reveal the monarch's fascination with the defeated French Emperor Napoleon. The centrepiece of the visit is the magnificent Waterloo Chamber,

The Andy Warhol Museum announces 'Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent'

The Andy Warhol Museum announces its latest exhibition, Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent, opening to the public January 31, 2015. This exhibition is the first full-scale survey covering more than 30 years of work by the American artist Corita Kent (1918–1986). In her rich and varied career, she was a designer, teacher, feminist, and activist for civil rights and anti-war causes. Her thousands of posters, murals, and signature serigraphs reflect a combined passion for faith and politics. Kent became one of the most popular graphic artists of the 1960s and 1970s, and her images remain iconic symbols that address the larger questions and concerns of that turbulent time. While several exhibitions have focused on Kent’s work from the 1960s, Someday is Now is the first major museum show to survey her entire career, including early abstractions and text pieces as well as the more lyrical works made in the 1970s

Smithsonian scientist breaks new ground confirming marine species are what they eat

Scientists have long hypothesized that distinct species such as whales, sea turtles and seals independently evolved similar physical traits to adapt to life in the ocean. This process, known as convergent evolution, has generally been supported using qualitative, visual comparisons of bones and fossils. For the first time, a team of scientists from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and University of California at Davis used dietary data of living marine species to develop a comprehensive ecological perspective of their evolutionary origins. The researchers developed a novel, quantitative approach to classify diets of marine mammals and reptiles and compared them with measurements of each species’ teeth and skulls. They found that distantly related animals with shared diets evolved similar

Now on view: Los Angeles County Museum of Art's new Vicente Albán paintings from Ecuador

Back in 1996, when I organized my first exhibition of Spanish colonial art in New York City, I included a group of fascinating works portraying racial types from Ecuador. The paintings were part of a set of six canvases, four of which had just been acquired by a private collector. The whereabouts of the two missing canvases was at the time unknown. Inscribed with the numeral 1 in the lower center, it was clear that this set was the first of two. The other series (bearing the numeral 2) is now in the Museo de América in Madrid and was shipped to Spain’s Royal Cabinet of Natural History in the late 18th century. It is signed by the Quito master Vicente Albán (active 1767–96). LACMA’s recent acquisition of the two missing paintings from the first set is thrilling. What makes these paintings exceptional? To start, there were only two sets created of Ecuadorean racial types (in contrast to the over 120 sets of the popular Mex Online gallery explains the importance of Battle of Waterloo in European history

An online gallery marking the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo went live Wednesday, showing off 200 relics from the time -- including the Duke of Wellington's famous boots. Drawn from museums and private collections across Europe, the historical objects recall the events south of Brussels in June 1815, when Wellington led the British and allied forces to a final, decisive victory over French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. Several items have never been seen before and evoke the lives of footsoldiers, hussars and high-ranking officers alike. There is notably the original pair of polished black calfskin boots designed by the military leader. Different versions of the boots have since become known as Wellington boots or "Wellies". There is also an Egyptian-style hooded coat worn by Napoleon the day before the battle that finally ended the
