Nobuyoshi Araki, From the Series PaINting, 2010

Admired for his sensual photographs of exotic flowers and scorned for his controversial pictures of young women tied up with ropes in the “kinbaku” style of sexual bondage, artist Nobuyoshi Araki is legendary in Japan and notorious worldwide. A prolific photographer,  Araki has published more than 350 books of his photographs and over the  last decade has turned to embellishing his black-and-white pictures  with acrylic paint to add expressionistic fervor. Currently on view at Galerie Bob van Osrouw in Zurich through January 29, Araki’s erotic, mixed media PaINtings provide both pleasure and pain, while  paradoxically setting feminism  back about 100 years.

In this image made available Wednesday  Jan. 26, 2011, by the University of East Anglia, Donald Hartog and J.D.  Salinger, right, pose together in London in 1989, when they met for the  first time since 1938. A trove of letters written by Salinger to British  friend Donald Hartog reveals a sociable man who took bus trips to  Niagara Falls, ate fast-food hamburgers, enjoyed watching Tim Henman  play tennis - and claimed always to be writing new work. The letters  were written to Don Hartog, who met Salinger in 1938 when both were  teenagers, sent by their families to study German in Vienna. They  corresponded after returning home - Salinger to try his hand as a  writer, Hartog eventually to go into the food import-export business.
