High SocietyThis fabulous exhibition focuses on the life-sized, full-length portrait — a rare form, mainly because it was so wildly expensive. If you were going to do it, you did it properly: examples here come from artists such as Rembrandt, Velázquez, Van Dyck, Cranach the Elder, Frans Hals, Gainsborough, Sargent and Reynolds, and their sitters are almost exclusively the regal, the powerful or the merely stratospherically rich. It’s the poshest party you’ll ever be invited to.
The grim spectre of the terrible reviews that afflicted Rufus Norris’s new production of Macbeth at the National Theatre last week (“Murk, murk, everywhere,” said the Times critic) is not yet looming when I meet Polly Findlay at the RSC’s rehearsal rooms in Clapham, south London. The 35-year-old director is at the helm of this season’s other production of the tragedy, soon to open in Stratford-upon-Avon with Christopher Eccleston and Niamh Cusack in the starring roles.
Is there anything more delicious than the arms and legs of a healthy, fat baby? One person who would have agreed was the painter Mary Cassatt. Working in Paris around the turn of the 20th century, the American artist has perhaps never been surpassed at capturing in paint the soft, squashy flesh, the rounded pot bellies and tiny, artless gestures of small children.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
