Watercolorist Emil Nolde once said, “To the annoyance of art historians, I shall destroy all lists that give information about the dates of my pictures.” But there’s one date he can’t erase: his birthday: August 7, 1867. Today we’d like to wish him a very happy birthday.

Happy birthday to one of the founding fathers of Pop Art Andy Warhol! Warhol’s “Brillo Boxes” premiered in 1964 and are still confounding people today.
