Les Dodgers profitent du repos

Les Dodgers profitent du repos
LOS ANGELES – Peu importe quelle équipe ressortira grande gagnante du septième match de la série de championnat de la Ligue américaine, les Dodgers de Los Angeles regarderont le match à domicile, sachant qu'ils sont confortablement installés. Les Dodgers ont profité d'une pause de quatre jours avant le début de la Série mondiale, après avoir éliminé les Cubs de Chicago jeudi soir. Les Dodgers ont remporté sept de leurs huit matchs en séries. Les moments de répit prolongés entre leurs deux séries écourtées leur ont permis de garder leur rotation en ordre, de donner du repos aux lanceurs et du temps de récupération suffisant à leur enclos dominant de releveurs. « Sachant ce qui se passe en séries, d'être en mesure de revenir à la maison et d'avoir du temps pour récupérer physiquement et mentalement, ç'a été un grand avantage pour nous », a déclaré le gérant des Dodgers Dave Roberts avant le septième match entre les Yankees de New York et les Astros de Houston. Le joueur d'arrêt-court Corey Seager aura peut-être même le temps de revenir au jeu, lui qui a été tenu à l'écart durant la série de championnat de la Ligue nationale suite à une blessure au dos. « Je sais que Corey ne veut pas être mis de côté », a mentionné Roberts. Avec leurs 104 victoires en saison régulière, soit la meilleure fiche des Majeures, les Dodgers ont bénéficié de l'avantage du terrain depuis le début des séries. La troupe de Roberts a débuté les deux précédentes séries à domicile et a seulement fait deux voyages en avion ce mois-ci. Les Dodgers ont éliminé leurs adversaires sur la route et sont rapidement revenus à Los Angeles. Ils ont seulement eu besoin d'un cinquième match face aux Cubs, soit un de plus que le minimum nécessaire pour atteindre la Série mondiale. « Nous sommes en forme, a affirmé le gérant des Dodgers. Et heureusement, avec la durée de la série de championnat, nous n'avons pas surutilisé nos joueurs, et nous avons donné un répit à nos lanceurs. Du côté des joueurs sur le terrain, tout le monde semble se porter à merveille. » La formation californienne a également mis la main sur son cinquième titre consécutif de la section Ouest de la Ligue nationale à la mi-septembre et a surclassé les Indians de Cleveland, affichant le meilleur dossier des Majeures. Les Dodgers sont parvenus à réaliser tout ça, sans avoir d'objectifs aussi précis. Pendant ce temps, leurs trois adversaires en séries se sont taillé une place in extremis. Les Diamondbacks sont parvenus à la série de sections en battant les Rockies du Colorado lors d'un match de repêchage, ce qui veut dire que l'as de l'équipe Zack Greinke ne pouvait pas jouer avant le troisième match de la série face aux Dodgers. Après avoir balayé les Diamondbacks, la formation californienne a profité de quatre jours de congé avant de se mesurer aux Cubs, qui venaient de remporter péniblement leur série face aux Nationals de Washington, en cinq matchs. Ils ont dû prendre un vol de 10 heures vers la côte ouest – avec une escale imprévue à Albuquerque – avec une rotation de lanceurs diminuée, et les Dodgers ont immédiatement pris les commandes de la série de championnat. Les hommes de Roberts ont mené les Cubs 28-8 au chapitre des points produits et les Cubs n'ont pas été en mesure de produire des points autrement qu'avec des circuits – l'une des faiblesses des lanceurs des Dodgers. L'enclos des lanceurs des Dodgers a été indomptable, maintenant une moyenne de points mérités de 0,94 et retirant 32 frappeurs sur des prises en 28 manches et deux tiers. Ils ont défait les Cubs même en l'absence de Seager, qui est demeuré chez lui afin de reposer son dos. S'il est en mesure d'effectuer un retour au jeu durant la Série mondiale, il ajoutera une autre dimension à une formation qui s'est montrée très débrouillarde tout au long de la saison. Roberts a affirmé qu'il pourrait même être le frappeur désigné des Dodgers dans le stade de la Ligue américaine pour reposer davantage son dos. « S'il peut frapper et que sa santé physique n'est pas compromise, alors c'est logique », a poursuivi le gérant. Après avoir remporté le titre de la recrue de l'année dans la Ligue nationale en 2016, Seager a mené les Dodgers cette saison avec 159 coups sûrs, une moyenne au bâton de ,295, 22 circuits et 77 points produits. Il a réussi trois coups sûrs en 11 présences en série de sections et a obtenu quatre buts sur balles. Il était le deuxième frappeur de l'alignement durant les trois rencontres éliminatoires auxquelles il a participé cet automne. Toutefois, Seager s'est blessé au dos lors du troisième match de la série de sections face aux Diamonbacks et les Dodgers l'ont laissé de côté en faveur de Charlie Culberson, qui s'est présenté au marbre à 15 reprises en saison régulière. Culberson a cependant été impressionnant en réalisant quelques bons jeux face aux Cubs. Il a frappé cinq coups sûrs en 11 présences au bâton. « Ce n'est pas facile de prendre la place de Corey [Seager], a avancé Roberts. Nous sommes persuadé qu'il pourra être de retour à temps pour le premier match, mais si ça ne se passe pas comme prévu, nous devrons le remplacer à nouveau. » Culberson sera probablement de la formation des Dodgers en marge de la Série mondiale, vu le retour improbable de Seager. Si l'arrêt-court vedette obtenait le feu vert des médecins, le vétéran voltigeur Curtis Granderson pourrait être retiré de la formation partante, lui qui a connu beaucoup de difficultés en séries notamment avec huit retraits sur des prises au bâton. « Avec Curtis, nous devons simplement comparer les deux formations et voir si ça a du sens », a ajouté Roberts.

Tiffany & Co. Inspired Boudoir

In my current boudoir, which I share with my husband, I often daydream about what my very own little boudoir would be decorated like. What if you had a boudoir that was inspired by something you adore? Since the topic of my recent posts have been Tiffany & Co., let’s take a look at how to create a Tiffany & Co. inspired boudoir.

1. FURNITURE

Tiffany blue (or white to contrast, if you’re using a Tiffany blue wall color) headboard, trimmed in faux diamond upholstery tacks by Diamond Head. I L.O.V.E. IT!! As you can see, it is inspired by the famous “Tiffany blue”, the white ribbon and, of course, DIAMONDS!

Since no boudoir is complete without a bedroom vanity, how about a mirrored one to pay tribute to Tiffany’s famous sterling silver?

    Personal life

    Tiffany was the son of Charles Lewis Tiffany, founder of Tiffany and Company; and Harriet Olivia Avery Young. Louis married Mary Woodbridge Goddard (c1850-1884) on May 15, 1872 in Norwich, Connecticut and had the following children: Mary Woodbridge Tiffany (1873-1963) who married Graham Lusk; Charles Louis Tiffany I (1874-1874); Charles Louis Tiffany II (1878-1947); and Hilda Goddard Tiffany (1879-1908), the youngest. After the death of his wife, he married Louise Wakeman Knox (1851-1904) on November 9, 1886. They had the following children: Louise Comfort Tiffany (1887-1974); Julia DeForest Tiffany (1887-1973) who married Gurdon S. Parker then married Francis Minot Weld;[2] Annie Olivia Tiffany (1888-1892); and Dorothy Trimble Tiffany (1891-1979), who, as Dorothy Burlingham, later became a noted psychoanalyst and lifelong friend and partner of Anna Freud. Many of Tiffany's descendants are active in the arts, politics, and the sciences. Only one descendant is working in glass today — Dr. Rodman Gilder Miller of Seattle, Washington.[citation needed]

    He attended school at Pennsylvania Military Academy[3] in Chester, Pennsylvania, and Eagleswood Military Academy in Perth Amboy, New Jersey. His first artistic training was as a painter, studying under George Inness and Samuel Colman in New York City and Léon Bailly in Paris.

    Career

    Tiffany's painting depicting a market outside of the walls of Tangier.

    Louis Comfort Tiffany started out as a painter. He became interested in glassmaking from about 1875 and worked at several glasshouses in Brooklyn between then and 1878. In 1879, he joined with Candace Wheeler, Samuel Colman and Lockwood de Forest to form Louis Comfort Tiffany and Associated American Artists. Tiffany's leadership and talent, as well as by his father's money and connections, led this business to thrive.Their most notable design in 1881 was the opalescent floor to ceiling glass screen commissioned for the White House by President Chester A. Arthur. The interior design of the Mark Twain House in Hartford CT. was also done in 1881 and still remains.

    A desire to concentrate on art in glass led to the breakup of the firm in 1885, when Tiffany chose to establish his own glassmaking firm later that same year. The first Tiffany Glass Company was incorporated on December 1, 1885, which in 1902 became known as the Tiffany Studios.

    The Holy City (1905) – St. John's vision on the isle of Patmos. Having 58 panels, this window is said to be one of the largest made by the Tiffany Studios. It is located at Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church (Baltimore, Maryland), which has eleven Tiffany windows.

    In the beginning of his career,Tiffany used cheap jelly jars and bottles because they had the mineral impurities that finer glass lacked. When he was unable to convince fine glassmakers to leave the impurities in, he began making his own glass. Tiffany used opalescent glass in a variety of colors and textures to create a unique style of stained glass. This can be contrasted with the method of painting in glass paint or enamels on colorless glass that had been the dominant method of creating stained glass for several hundred years in Europe. (The First Presbyterian Church building of 1905 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is unique in that it uses Tiffany windows that partially make use of painted glass.) Use of the colored glass itself to create stained glass pictures was motivated by the ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement and its leader William Morris in England. Fellow artist and glassmakers Oliver Kimberly and Frank Duffner, founders of the Duffner and Kimberly company, and John La Farge were Tiffany's chief competitors in this new American style of stained glass. Tiffany, Duffner and Kimberly, along with La Farge, had learned their craft at the same glasshouses in Brooklyn in the late-1870s.

    In 1893, Tiffany built a new factory called the Stourbridge Glass Company, later called Tiffany Glass Furnaces, which was located in Corona, Queens, New York. In 1893, his company also introduced the term, Favrile in conjunction with his first production of blown glass at his new glass factory. Some early examples of his lamps were exhibited in the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago.At the Exposition Universelle (1900),Paris 1900,he won a gold medal with his stained glass windows The Four Seasons

    He trademarked Favrile (from the old French word for handmade) on November 13, 1894. He later used this word to apply to all of his glass, enamel and pottery. Tiffany's first commercially produced lamps date from around 1895. Much of his company's production was in making stained glass windows and Tiffany lamps, but his company designed a complete range of interior decorations. At its peak, his factory employed more than 300 artisans. Recent scholarship led by Rutgers professor Martin Eidelberg suggests that a team of talented single women designers led by Clara Driscoll played a big role in designing many of the floral patterns on the famous Tiffany lamp as well as for other creations.[4][5][6][7][8]

    Tiffany interiors also made considerable use of mosaics. The mosaics workshop, largely staffed by women, was overseen until 1898 by the Swiss-born sculptor and designer Jacob Adolphus Holzer.

    Tiffany used all his skills in the design of his own house, the 84-room Laurelton Hall, in the village of Laurel Hollow, on Long Island, New York completed in 1905. Later this estate was donated to his foundation for art students along with 60 acres (243,000 m²) of land, sold in 1949, and was destroyed by a fire in 1957.

    The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park, Florida houses the world's most comprehensive collection of the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany ([9] in Europe it is in Accrington,England) including Tiffany jewelry, pottery, paintings, art glass, leaded-glass windows, lamps, and the chapel interior he designed for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. After the close of the exposition, a generous benefactor purchased the entire chapel for installation in the crypt of the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, New York in New York City. As construction on the cathedral continued, the chapel fell into disuse, and in 1916, Tiffany removed the bulk of it to Laurelton Hall. After the 1957 fire, the chapel was rescued by Hugh McKean,[10] a former art student in 1930 at Laurelton Hall, and his wife Jeannette Genius McKean,[11] and now occupies an entire wing of the Morse Museum which they founded. Many glass panels from Laurelton Hall are also there; for many years some were on display in local restaurants and businesses in Central Florida. Some were replaced by full-scale color transparencies after the museum opened. A major exhibit at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art on Laurelton Hall opened in November 2006. A new exhibit at the New-York Historical Society through 28 May 2007 features new information about the women who worked for Tiffany and their contribution to designs credited to Tiffany.[12] In addition, since 1995 the Queens Museum of Art has featured a permanent collection of Tiffany objects, which continues Tiffany’s presence in Corona, Queens where the company's studios were once located.

    The only Tiffany windows outside of the USA are situated at the American Church in Paris on the Quai d'Orsay. They are classified as National Monuments by the French government and were commissioned by Rodman Wanamaker in 1901 for the original American Church building on the right bank of the Seine.

    Death

    Louis Comfort Tiffany died on January 17, 1933, and is buried in Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York.[13]
