Alphonse Maria Mucha was born in the town of Ivancice, Moravia (today's region of Czech Republic). His singing abilities allowed him to continue his education through high school in the Moravian capital of Brünn (today Brno), even though drawing had been his first love since childhood.

He worked at decorative painting jobs in Moravia, mostly painting theatrical scenery, then in 1879 moved to Vienna to work for a leading Viennese theatrical design company, while informally furthering his artistic education.

Philips Wouwerman (also Wouwermans) (baptized May 24, 1619, Haarlem - May 19, 1668 Haarlem), was a Dutch painter of hunting, landscape and battle scenes.

He was first taught by his father, Paul Joosten Wouwerman, an historical painter of moderate ability. According to a contemporary account he had also studied with Frans Hals (1581/85-1666).

Wouwerman became a member of its guild of painters in 1642, and he died after a successful career in his hometown in May 1668. (From Wikipedia)

T he most significant musical anniversaries of 2018 are all centenaries – of the births of Leonard Bernstein and Bernd Alois Zimmermann , and of the death of Claude Debussy , and it’s the last of those, which falls in March, that is attracting the attention of record companies. Warner Classics has got in early with its 33-disc set that aims to include everything Debussy wrote, from his earliest songs of 1879-80 to the three sonatas composed during the first world war, as well as his own transcriptions, and arrangements of his music made by others during his lifetime.

Presented chronologically within each genre, it’s a scrupulously assembled and documented collection, with the bulk of the material sourced from within the Warner group – performances that first appeared on EMI, Erato or Virgin Classics – but also borrowing from other labels for some of the rarities, as well as including a handful of minor pieces recorded for the first time. There’s also a final disc of Debussy’s own performances from piano rolls and 78s, playing some of his Préludes and the Children’s Corner suite, and accompanying Mary Garden in the Verlaine settings of Ariettes Oubliées and an aria from Pelléas et Mélisande.

At this time he painted scenes of the Swiss Alps, using light effects and dramatic views subjectively to project emotional moods into the landscape.
