"The Goldfinch," in Dutch 'het Puttertje' was painted by Dutch artist Carel Fabritius in 1654. It inspired Donna Tartt's new novel of the same name.
The Goldfinch by Carel Fabritius, 1654 - The painting that the book's story revolves around: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.
Painting by Carel Fabritius THE GOLDFINCH I didn't think I liked this book at first but it's the type of story that stays with you, that you think about long after you've finished it and it haunts you until you come to realize what an amazing story it really is. It revolves around this stolen painting. Poor little bird. Tethered to its perch.
the goldfinch the basis of the story by donna tartt (which, I'll confess, I gave up after 100 pages). This is the painting by Carel Fabritius in 1654. Oil on panel. 13.25x9 inches. A student of Vermeer.
Carel Fabritius-1622-1654 The Goldfinch 1654. One of my favourite paintings - it is at the centre of the new Donna Tartt book - The Goldfinch.

Johannes Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" 1665) - "Certainly the way Vermeer captured subtle changes of light and focus seems to anticipate photography: some features appear in focus, while others seem out of focus, and objects are depicted with a foreshortening that resembles that seen in photographs -- this is perhaps one reason why he appeals to us today."

Since the founding of the Carter Center in 1982, Jimmy Carter has used it as a tool to further his international and domestic goals of human rights, disease prevention and conflict resolution. Through the efforts of the Carter Center, Guinea worm disease has been almost completely eradicated. According to the CDC, "Cases have gone from 3.5 million per year in 1986 to 542 in 2012."

Ghandi was a strong believer in peaceful protest. A peaceful protest is a non violent resistance in which people unite and try to achieve socio-political goals through symbolic acts. Gahndi and his followers led a non-cooperation movement in the 1920's that called all Indians to boycott British goods, they became self-reliant and did things that the British previously did by themselves.
After 21 years in South Africa, Gandhi returned to India in 1915. He became the leader of the Indian nationalist movement
Gahndi and his followers led a non-cooperation movement in the 1920's that called all Indians to boycott British goods.
Mahatma Gandhi : Gandhi with textile workers at Darwen, Lancashire, England 26 September 1931
I know ghandi was not muslim. But, he's a hero of the left. Gandhi believed Indian women who were raped lost their value as human beings. He argued that fathers could be justified in killing daughters who had been sexually assaulted for the sake of family and community honour. He moderated his views towards the end of his life. But the damage was done, and the legacy lingers in every present-day Indian press report of a rape victim who commits suicide out of "shame".

"To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it." –Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Milligan, 1816
