(Blakelock is a key figure in the setting of Paul Auster's novel Moon Palace.) Ralph Albert Blakelock (1847-1919) Moonlight. 1885 The Brooklyn Museum. A problem with his work is its uneven quality. He ramped up production when he needed to cover the costs of his rapidly expanding family of 9 children. After his death, Blakelock’s estranged wife wrote to a dealer, “His best work took a long time to complete and in the meantime we had to live.” Ralph Albert Blakelock (1847-1919) Moonlight Landscape. Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington DC When he wasn’t taking shortcuts, Blakelock produced landscapes like his “moonlight” series in which the lunar glow has a diffuse quality. His methods foreshadow modernism as in his liberal use of the palette knife with which built up & scraped away layers to create texture. Ralph Albert Blakelock (1847-1919) Moonlight Sonata. 1889-92. Museum of Fine Arts, Boston One of his many moonlight paintings was sold to the Corcoran at the highest price ever paid for the work of a living American artist at that time. By the way, that Corcoran painting is my favorite. But his rise in public aclaim along with the increase in his art sales never benefited him or his struggling family.

27 DE JONIO DE 1880 NACE: HELEN ADAMS KELLER (Tuscumbia, 1880 - Easton, 1968) Escritora norteamericana. Invidente y sordomuda, se especializó en educación especial para discapacitados. A causa de una grave enfermedad que le acometió a los diecinueve meses de edad, Keller perdió la vista y el oído, lo que le impidió desarrollar el habla durante sus primeros años de vida. Cuando cumplió los seis años, sus padres contrataron a una institutriz irlandesa, Ann Sullivan, quien le enseñó el lenguaje de los sordomudos y que marcaría un giro radical en su vida. Helen Keller Posteriormente, y junto con su institutriz, prosiguió sus estudios especiales en la institución Horace Man School para sordos, de Boston, y en la Wright-Humason Oral School, en Nueva York. Allí no sólo aprendió a hablar, leer y escribir, sino que se capacitó para cursar estudios superiores. Siempre acompañada por A. Sullivan, desde 1900 hasta 1904, completó su formación en el Radcliffe College, donde se graduó con la mención "cum laude". Tras su graduación, Keller realizó diversos viajes a Europa y África. Su obra publicada es, básicamente, autobiográfica, ya que Keller encontró en la escritura el modo de objetivar y hacer comunicable su difícil experiencia. Sus libros pronto se convirtieron en un ejemplo de tenacidad y resistencia frente a las dolencias eventuales de la vida, especialmente las físicas. Entre sus publicaciones destacan La historia de mi vida (1902); Optimismo, de 1903; El mundo en el que vivo (1908) -libro que le valió su fama internacional y en el que narra el contraste entre la riqueza de la vida íntima que su alma albergaba y la menguada vida sensorial de la que Keller fue víctima-; Canción del muro de piedra, de 1910; Fuera de la oscuridad, de 1913; Mi religión, de 1927; El medio de una corriente, de 1929;Paz en el atardecer, de 1932; El diario de Hellen Keller, de 1938, y Déjanos tener fe, de 1940. En 1934 Keller tuvo ocasión de devolver los favores prestados y la persistente dedicación a su institutriz A. Sullivan cuando ésta perdió la vista imprevisiblemente. Keller publicó también algunos artículos en la prensa y en revistas especializadas.
