Let’s give Emma Stone a warm willkommen to Broadway. The 25-year-old actress will make her Broadway debut — finally — in just under a month, stepping into the silky stockings of club singer Sally Bowles in the hit Broadway revival of Cabaret. Stone replaces Michelle Williams, who departs on Nov. 9, and will take over from Nov. 11 through Feb. 1, 2015. (x)
MariaClara Eimmart, Ten Depictions of Heavenly Phenomena, (late 17th century)
Eimmart was the daughter of the history painter, portraitist and amateur astronomer Georg Christoph Eimmart, with whom she collaborated. Her father was director of the Malerakademie in Nürnberg but also established a private observatory. She was given a broad education in the fine arts, and specialized in botanical and astronomical illustrations. She made a series of some 350 drawings of lunar phases, observed by telescope, and captured on distinctive blue paper. Twelve of these were given to conte Marsili, a scientific collaborator with her father, of those twelve, ten survive in Bologna. She shortly thereafter married her father’s pupil and successor, the astronomer Johann Heinrich Müller and died in childbirth.
