Andrea Palladio @500

Palladian architecture

Andrea Palladio (November 30, 1508August 19, 1580), was an Italian architect, widely considered the most influential person in the history of Western architecture. The Palladian style, named after him, adhered to classical Roman principles (Palladio knew relatively little about Greek architecture). The Palladian villa format was easily adapted for a democratic worldview, as can be seen at Thomas Jefferson's commissioned buildings. Palladian motifs, particularly the window, made a comeback during the postmodern era. The architect Philip Johnson frequently used it as a doorway.

Jean Eustache (November 30, 1938 - November 3, 1981) was a French filmmaker best known for his 1973 film The Mother and the Whore.
