Gustav Klimt, Landhaus am Attersee, 1914
— someone with inexhaustible emotional reserves, a newborn with no world-weariness or cynicism, a rallying cry that doesn’t drown out apathy (via tributary)

July 25, 1965: With a simple “Let’s Go!” Bob Dylan breaks into a rocking version of “Maggie’s Farm” at the Newport Folk Festival. Some were horrified as young music fans searching for authenticity usually are, and it was seen as a betrayal of the purity of the folk movement. Dylan chose to wear a leather jacket and play electric guitar backed by members of “The Paul Butterfield Blues Band” including Mike Bloomfield, who is seen here playing these amazing solos and fills. Dylan was booed off the stage after a few songs and returned to play an acoustic set later on. His determination to “go electric” brought him a legion of new fans and even some of the folkies forgave him. In many respects it represented an artist frustrated with the limits of his persona willing to try new things and keeping ahead of his conservative audience.
