Credit to from @artinstitutechi (@get_regrann) - Born #OnThisDay in 1827—Arnold Böcklin's art had little in common with Impressionism or the academic art of his time. Instead, his depictions of demigods in naturalistic settings interpret themes from Classical mythology in an idiosyncratic, often sensual manner. His haunting work made him an important contributor to the international Symbolist movement. . "In the Sea" displays an unsettling, earthy realism. Mermaids and tritons frolic in the water with a lusty energy and abandon verging on coarseness. Occupying the center of the composition is a harp-playing triton. Three mermaids have attached themselves to his huge frame as if it were a raft; the one near his shoulder seems to thrust herself upon him. . The work’s sense of boisterousness is tempered by the ominously shaped reflection of the triton and mermaids in the sea and by the oddness of the large-eared heads that emerge from the water at the right. . See Arnold Böcklin's "In the Sea" on view at the Art Institute. - #regrann #repost #instagood #instagram

Anglican bishops Hugh Latimer and Nicholas Ridley were burnt at the stake #onthisday in 1555. The men, along with Thomas Cranmer, were known as the Oxford Martyrs, and were tried for heresy during the Marian persecutions. Latimer and Ridley were executed just outside of the city walls. Cranmer suffered the same fate on March 21, 1556.

#OnThisDay in 1995, the Million Man March was held on and around the National Mall in Washington, DC. The organizing committee, composed of the National African American Leadership Summit, leading civil rights activists, the Nation of Islam, and local chapters of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, invited prominent speakers to address the audience.⠀ ⠀ Women in conjunction with March leadership organized a parallel event called the ‘Day of Absence’ that same day, in which all blacks were encouraged to stay home from their typical work, school, and social engagements in order to attend teach-ins and worship services as a means of focusing on building the self-sufficiency of black communities. #APeoplesJourney #ANationsStory⠀ ⠀ 📸 1.
