John Singer Sargent’s painting debuted at the 1884 Paris Salon and caused such outrage that the artist had to retreat to London. The controversy was even worse for the model, Amélie Gautreau, whose reputation was forever tarnished by the shameful incident. When Sargent gave the painting to @MetMuseum in 1916, he insisted they disguise her identity... and thus, the painting has come to be known as “Madame X.”

Regarded as a pioneer of Modernism, Constantin Brâncuși bequeathed his entire studio to the French state on the condition that it recreate the space as it was at the time of his death.
An exact reconstruction, built by architect #RenzoPiano, was completed in 1997 on the piazza opposite @CentrePompidou.
Atelier Brâncuși now houses the artist’s sculptures, drawings, paintings, and thousands of original prints. • Image via @Talisa_Sutton #AtelierBrancusi #ConstantinBrancusi

Unreal. Our hearts go out to you, Paris. A fire was reported at Notre Dame Cathedral at 6:50pm local time yesterday and raged into the night, destroying the spire and much of the roof. While officials are still assessing the overall damage, the structure (including its 800-year-old façade) have remained intact. 💔 • Image: Édouard Baldus “Notre-Dame (façade),” 1860s via @MetMuseum #NotreDame #TheMet

Today we honor the 100th anniversary of #Bauhaus, a groundbreaking school and visual style that changed design forever and became synonymous with modernism. Founded by Walter Gropius in 1919, the Bauhaus attracted a different kind of student, one ready to abandon tradition and adopt its community-minded spirit. The school attracted some of the greatest minds of the time as teachers: Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (to name a few). To learn more about this iconic movement, click the link in our bio. • Image of the Bauhaus school building via @stevenxue_, image of the #FarnsworthHouse via @andrsosuna, artwork: Wassily Kandinsky “Composition 8 (Komposition 8),” 1923 via @Guggenheim

Spending the morning at a very special #EmptyGuggenheim to pay #HilmaafKlint a visit before her groundbreaking exhibition closes in two weeks. An elusive yet prolific artist, she began creating abstract paintings in 1906, years before Kandinsky, Malevich, and Mondrian. It’s a rare treat to experience her work as she stipulated that it not be shown for 20 years following her death. See 165 bold and radical works by this long-underrecognized innovator of abstract art at the @Guggenheim through April 23. • #Guggenheim
