Summary

An icon in the Art Nouveau movement, Émile Gallé (1846-1904) sought to portray the beauty and simplicity of nature in his glass art. His designs, referred to as “poetry in glass”, range from fine pottery to jewellery to furniture. Everything Gallé produced contains traces of his masterful technique which reflects his innovativeness as an artist and his skill as a designer. In this rich text, Gallé unravels the beauty and ingenuity found within his own work.

    The Rivals has been delighting audiences since its very first presentation at London's Covent Garden Theatre on January 17th, 1775.  The idealistic Lydia Languish, reads nothing but romantic novels, and in doing so, believes she can only find true love in the arms of a man without wealth. Captain Jack Absolute has fallen in love with her, and pretends to be a penniless ensign to win her heart.  
    Coming between these two lovers are some of the most extraordinary comic characters ever to grace a stage; the autocratic Sir Anthony Absolute, the misspeaking Mrs. Malaprop, the fiery Irishman from Clod hall - Sir Lucius O'Trigger; and poor Bob Acres, a country squire who finds himself with a dueling pistol in his hand.  
    One of the funniest late-Restoration comedies, The Rivals has spanned the centuries, and will continue to do so.

    The cartoon is a graphics art, which tells a funny and/or satiric story in form of an affirmative picture, mostly with a point. Normally no words are used for the picture joke – sometimes just keywords.
    
    The cartoon is a drawing, that often in a humoristic way comments or criticises conditions of political or social character.
    
    The cartoon should easily perceive, which situation, person or problematic is intended to be told by the cartoonist. Also human attributes and characters can be put down in an overdoing manner.
    
    Scouting – with all its all-round attitude towards clean, truthworthy and moral values offers quite a lot of opportunities for critics, comments and interpretations –  in particular, if the way of the cartoon is put in a fair, never offending, discriminating or even insulting form.
