Art Birthdays 1/19/2010

Today is the birthday for several notable artists, so I thought I’d take note.

Edgar Allen Poe, the depressive author and, I suspect, model for the unmasked Darth Vader in return of the Jedi, was born in 1809.

First off, Cezanne, one of the fathers of modernism, was born 171 years ago, though by golly he doesn’t look a day over 152.

Next, photographer/model extraordinaire Cindy Sherman was born 1954.

Finally, Dolly Parton was born in 1946.

All of these artists are Capricorns, which Astrology.com defines as, “Few people are as practical and ambitious as Capricorn. Yours is the tenth sign, an earthy element, which makes you down to earth and matter-of-fact. Caution is your second name and this is due to Saturn, your ruling planet. You are sometimes shy and lack self confidence and self-esteem.”

So there you go. I have no further analysis other to say, congratulations on having clawed your way out of the womb, everybody! Let me know if I forgot anybody.
