The Invitation [The Letter] (1896). Władysław Czachórski (Polish, 1850-1911). Oil on canvas.
Czachórski features a well-dressed young woman seated in a French Louis XVI style chair, holding a letter in one hand and a small bouquet of flowers in her lap. The young woman displays a charming innocence; a sweet smile plays upon her lips. The variety of fabrics in the room - from her pink satin embroidered dress, to the burgundy and navy oriental rug on the table - characterize the eclecticism prevalent in interior decoration during this era.

A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term  “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.

The Fall Behind the Scenes: Lee’s Method Acting

Lee Pace spent the two months it took to film The Fall’s hospital scenes a wheelchair. Only a select few of the crew knew that he could actually walk.

“It was hard (…) but it was about getting that performance out of Catinca, and making her feel comfortable with me, and putting the mood on set that she would be sensitive to. I do think it was valuable, because it caught a level of realism in those scenes with Catinca, a privacy and sensitivity that I don’t know we would have gotten without doing it.”
