Blood Diamonds, also known as "Conflict Diamonds", are stones produced

in areas controlled by rebel forces that are opposed to internationally recognized governments. The rebels sell these dia- monds, and the money is used to purchase arms for their military actions. Blood Diamonds are often produced through the forced labor of men, women, and children.

31 they are commonly stolen during

shipment or seized by attacking the mining operations of legitimate producers. The

stones are then smuggled into the interna-

32 as

legitimate gems. Enormous amounts of money are at stake and bribes, threats, tor- ture, and murder are modes of operation. This is why the term "blood diamonds" is used. The United Nations and other groups are working to block the entry of conflict

A prolific painter, draftsman, and etcher, Rembrandt is usually regarded as the greatest artist of Holland's "Golden Age”. He worked first in his native Leiden and, from 1632 onward, in Amsterdam, where he had studied briefly with the influential history painter Pieter Lastman. Rembrandt never went abroad, but he carefully examined the work of Northern artists who had lived in Italy. In the Leiden period, Rembrandt also responded strongly to earlier Netherlandish artists, such as Lucas van Leyden. However, a crucial aspect of Rembrandt’s development was his intense study of people, objects, and their surroundings, “from life” as it is

obvious in paintings like his early self- portraits and the Saint Paul in Prison (1627). Even by Dutch standards, Rembrandt’s pre- occupation with direct observation was

exceptional and continued throughout his

career. Despite the constant evolution of his

style, Rembrandt’s compelling descriptions of light, space, atmosphere, modeling, texture, and human situations may be traced back even from his late works, such as The Jewish Bride, Amsterdam, Rijksmuseum, to the foundations of his Leiden years. It was also this program, in good part that made Rembrandt a great teacher. In Amsterdam, Rembrandt became a prominent portraitist, attracting attention

with dramatic compositions like The

Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Tulp. In securing commissions, the artist was assisted by the

Mennonite art dealer Hendrick Uylenburgh. The Mennonites advocated personal inter- pretation of scripture, which probably influ- enced Rembrandt’s subjective and often moving treatment of biblical subjects. The artist became highly successful in the 1630s, when he had several pupils and assistants, started his own art collection, and lived the

life of a cultivated gentleman, especially in the impressive residence he purchased in 1639. Now it is known as the “Rembrandt

House” museum. Rembrandt exudes

confidence and urbanity in his Self-portrait (1640). It was modeled upon courtly portraits by Raphael and Titian. These artists probably also inspired his Amsterdam signature, “Rembrandt”.

Dame Zaha Hadid was the uncrowned

queen of contemporary architecture. A bona

fide autrice, Hadid was without a doubt the

world’s most famous woman in a starchitect

40 by her masculine peers.

During her student days in London at the Architectural Association School of Archi- tecture, the Iraqi-British architect was intensely preoccupied with changing our gen-

eral notions of space, not only a physical sense, but also socially and culturally. Hadid’s buildings are iconic. They are characterized by their dynamic formal qualities of sinuous-

ly , curving shapes, or crystallized strata.

Hadid’s project during the late 1970s and 1980s were marked by a profound under- standing of early 20th century avant-garde

artist and architects, in an attempt to redevelop and make relevant again the formal investiga- tions of Russian Constructivism and Italian Futurism, her projects expressed utopian ideals. Today, Zaha Hadid Architects create landmarks project for all types of functional programs. Their buildings are never bland or mundane, but, moreover, assertive state-

ments of a particular view that the world
