It’s always wonderful to discover a “new” painting from one of the masters — especially when it’s a Monet. Scientists have verified that “A Haystack In The Evening Sun” is indeed a real painting by impressionist painter Claude Monet himself. It has all the trademark characteristics of his work: nature, beautifully saturated pastels and an elegance in how he renders light and shadow. CLICK HERE to read more about this discovery.

Jack Kerouac was an American writer best known for the novel On the Road, which became an American classic, pioneering the Beat Generation in the 1950s. Upon graduating from high school in 1939, Kerouac received a football scholarship to Columbia University, but first he had to attend a year of preparatory school at the Horace Mann School for Boys in Brooklyn. So, at the age of 17, Kerouac packed his bags and moved to New York City, where he was immediately awed by the limitless new experiences of big city life. Of the many wonderful new things Kerouac discovered in New York, and perhaps the most influential on his life, was jazz. He described the feeling of walking past a jazz club in Harlem: “Outside, in the street, the sudden music which comes from the nitespot fills you with yearning for some intangible joy—and you feel that it can only be found within the smoky confines of the place.” CLICK HERE to find out more about this influential writer on biography.com
