Kay Nielsen - Artists in Film

Kay Nielsen
Kay Nielsen
was a Danish illustrator and key figure of the golden age of illustration. His art evinces the influence of ukiyo-e heavy Utagawa Hiroshige as well as Art Nouveau master Aubrey Beardsley. However, his synthesis was his own-- an instantly recognizable, highly ornate, fantastical world of pastels and light.

Nielsen was born March 12th, 1886, in Copenhagen, Denmark. His father was the director of the Royal Danish Theatre. From 1904 till 1916, he studied art in Paris and London. His first professional work was providing the illustrations for In Powder and Crinoline, Fairy Tales Retold by Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, first published in 1913. He returned to Denmark in 1917 where he collaborated with Johannes Kay Nielsen Twelve Dancing PrincessesPoulsen in painting stage scenery at the Royal Danish Theatre. After his theater work, he returned to illustrations, providing them for several collections of fairy tales.
In 1936, Nielsen was commissioned to provide stage art for a performance of Max Reinhardt's Everyman at the Hollywood Bowl. In 1938, Poulsen died, and the following year, Nielsen and his wife, Ulla, moved to California, where he found employment at Walt Disney. There he served as art director for the “Night on Bald Mountain” and “Ave Maria” segments of Fantasia. East of the Sun West of the Moon

Luis' underground release of the week: 
Ya Boy Mohawks & Heavy Metal (self-released CD)

Special thanks to Luis at Amoeba Music San Francisco for this week's Hip-Hop Top Ten chart in both text and video versions (above). He also gives his "underground release of the week" pick, the mixtape CD Mohawks & Heavy Metal from San Francisco native Ya Boy, whose latest is the artist's 13th release (including mixtapes and official albums) since 2004. Coming next, sometime this Spring, from this rapper (born William Joseph Crawford, cousin to both San Quinn and Messy Marv), will be the mixtape CD The Fix 2. And speaking of prolific Bay Area hip-hop artists, West Oakland rapper J. Stalin is this week's number one with Prenuptial Agreement. The artist can count this latest as his 14th release (including mixtapes and official albums) since 2006. Some months ago as a tease/taste of the new official album, he released the mixtape CD Prenup: The Leak, which helped propel this official album on Town Thizzness Entertainment (a sub-division of the late great Mac Dre's Thizz Entertainment) via SMC/Fontana to number one this week. Below in the series of videos (many slide shows or stills with music) is a sample from the new album -- the song "Self Made Millionaire" that features L'Jay, Lil Retro, and Lil Blood.
