Scientists say that this bone flute, found at Hohle Fels Cave in Germany, is at least 42,000 years old.

Flute’s Revised Age Dates the Sound of Music Earlier
By JOHN NOBLE WILFORD
Published: May 29, 2012
In hillside caves of southwestern Germany, archaeologists in recent years have uncovered the beginnings of music and art by early modern humans migrating into Europe from Africa. New dating evidence shows that these oldest known musical instruments in the world, flutes made of bird bone and mammoth ivory, are even older than first thought.

Oskar Schlemmer  - 

"The Bauhaus Stairway" (1932)
 
Distinguishing features: This painting is a farewell. All but one of the students on an ordinary day at the Bauhaus are walking away from us, up the stairs, towards the huge windows - the Bauhaus belongs in a higher realm than this one. Only one figure comes towards us, not so much walking as dancing on tiptoes. Perhaps there is still hope.
Schlemmer painted this in the year the Bauhaus was forced to abandon its beautiful modern building in Dessau. Another image, Yamawaki’s collage The End of the Dessau Bauhaus (1932), makes no bones about what this meant: it shows a jackbooted Nazi leading a moustached politician to stomp on the Bauhaus.
