The Picture of Dorian Gray | Albert Lewin | 1943
Complete script for the 1945 film. Based on the 1890 novel by Oscar Wilde. Equivalent to a nearly 3-hour version of the classic film, finally released at a length of 110 minutes.
A man has his portrait painted, and the portrait magically takes on the ability to absorb the sins of his debauched life while he remains unaged. The tale becomes a tragic warning against a selfish and unconsidered life, as Gray becomes increasingly paranoid that someone will discover the image of his true self. The painting of Dorian Gray used in the film was commissioned expressly for the film, by artist Ivan Le Lorraine Albright, and evolved during production. The piece is now at the Art Institute of Chicago. Winner of an Academy Award for Best Black-and-White Cinematography, and nominated for two others. Set in 19th century London.

Nick Cave is the subject of a different kind of rock documentary called 20,000 Days on Earth, which attempts to debunk the creative process for what it actually is: “It is just hard labor.”
Honored to be published in this beautiful magazine:

We’ve decided to make another "No Edit Friday" challenge this week.Since you all proved, that a great photograph has nothing to do with editing, but that it is only about the eye of the photographer, we’d really love to see, how you would polish your unedited shots.So, this week we are looking for photosets. Post a photoset with an unedited photo and the edit (so two photos in one set).Note: It is not about trying to make a mediocre shot work through editing, but it is only about making your already fantastic unedited photo “sing”.
Also this is not about showing your without any doubt wonderful editing skills though “extraordinary special editing” (that’s something for the 1photo-1000pictures project). It’s only about “polishing” a shot.So, upload your photos on Friday, September 19th, tag them with "no edit friday" (please use one of the first five tags, else we will not be able to find them with the Tumblr search), and we will reblog the coolest “no edits” and sets on Sunday, September 21st.Photosets will be given priorityMore information about “No Edit Friday” to be found here.

"Egon Schieles ‘Stadtende’ wurde unter enormen Sicherheitsmaßnahmen umgesiedelt. Dafür kam das Kunstwerk in eine speziell klimatisierte Box, in der es ins Joanneumsviertel transportiert wurde. Dort ist es von 26.11.2011-02.09.2012 in der Ausstellung “Moderne. Selbstmord der Kunst” zu bewundern.” (Universalmuseum Joanneum)
