Visually wondrous, Kedi is both "the ultimate cat video" and a documentary about the hundreds of thousands of cats who have freely roamed Istanbul for centuries.

Benjamin West: Queen Philippa Interceding for the Lives of the Burghers of Calais

Benjamin West

Queen Philippa Interceding for the Lives of the Burghers of Calais, 1788

“I love the history depicted in this painting. The resolute faces of the burghers show such strength. West conveys so clearly the queen's compassion while pleading to the guards. I also love the richness of the queen's gown and the detailed armor on the guard. ”
