When I saw this image it reminded me of Ginevra de'Benci by Leonardo da Vinci 300 years earlier. In particular, Female Tattooed reprises the three-quarter pose and the outdoor background.

From Normal Editions Workshop (N.E.W.) Archive (Illinois State University) in CARLI Digital Collections.

 

Dutch Mills is striking because of its simplicity. It is a triptych of sketches of a pair of windmills. The left panel reveals the most detail, with the central windmill outlined clearly against the sky, and the second windmill is a hazy silhouette in the background. The middle panel is hastily sketched, giving a mere impression of the mills and an overcast sky. Finally, the right panel is drawn with heavy black lines, lending a weight to the composition. Together the three versions provide a glimpse into the workings of the artist and the many ways one might approach a simple subject.

Coca-Cola "Coke" Dance, Navy Pier Campus
From Navy Pier Campus, 1946-1948 (University of Illinois at Chicago) in CARLI Digital Collections.

This image of postwar American youth with a Coke and a smile could almost be an ad, but it’s the real thing, from a newly-added photograph collection documenting the early days of the U of I campus in Chicago.

Last month UIUC migrated to our SFX server becoming our 53rd hosted customer. While focusing on the SFX server during this migration, we (the CARLI IT staff) wondered if there were any changes we could make that would improve overall performance. One of the tuning changes (virtual CPU allocation) was implemented this past Saturday and the results were mixed, but on Monday it became clear that SFX performance was getting much worse under load. We modified the settings again and rebooted the server during the lunch hour yesterday (Monday, Sept 8th).

If your library has not already done so, please consider contributing to our "Other CARLI Collections" portal. This initiative was designed to expose digital collections at CARLI libraries that are hosted outside of CARLI's installation of CONTENTdm.
