Henry Scott Tuke, All Hands to the Pumps, 1888-89
From the Tate Gallery:
This picture shows a ship that has lost one of its sails, and is being swamped by a storm. The crew desperately pump water out of the hull. When he painted this picture Henry Scott Tuke was living aboard an old French brig anchored in Falmouth Harbour.Tuke had lived in Falmouth as a boy, and visited since, but he left London in 1885 to settle there permanently. He was encouraged to move to Cornwall by the Newlyn school of open-air painters. He focused mainly on painting the male nude in the open air, but also produced marine subjects like this.

Francis Alÿs, Nightwatch, 2004.
Surveillance cameras observe a fox exploring the Tudor and Georgian rooms of the National Portrait Gallery at night.
All foxes are cultured and urbane.
This fox has it all figured out… No crowds and long lines, no admission fees, just art.
I have never seen three photos that made me want to write more NEVERWHERE as much as these…
This girl is walking around school with a blanket that has Nicholas Cage on it

This is me and everything I’m doing with my life.
