The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, in partnership with Fujifilm Belgium and Tribute International, the official distributor for the State of California premiered museum certified editions of Van Gogh masterpieces titled the Van Gogh Museum Edition at the 19th Annual LA Art Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Wednesday, January 15, 2014.

Willem van Gogh, the great, great grandson of Theo van Gogh (Vincent’s brother) and advisor to the Van Gogh Museum board was in LA to support the museum’s efforts to carry on Vincent’s legacy. Each piece in the Van Gogh Museum Edition is virtually identical to the original Van Gogh painting that is hanging in the museum, which will never be sold.

Barbra Streisand Refuses To Get Up Early For Movie Shoots

Singer/actress Barbra Streisand refuses to get up early for movie shoots and argues with producers if they don’t agree to let her sleep in.

The 70-year-old star hates early starts and won’t agree to a job if it means she will have to get out of bed at an inconvenient time.

Streisand reveals she wasn’t impressed when producers of the 2004 comedy Meet the Fockers wanted her to be on set at 7.30 am, so she told them she wouldn’t work unless she could start later.

She tells Britain’s Celebs on Sunday magazine, “On those Focker movies, I had to get up early and I’m not an early bird. It’s hard to be funny at 7.30 in the morning. So I said, ‘You can’t pick me up until 8.30 ’cause that’s a normal time to get up, for me.’ I don’t function that well at 6am. And they said, ‘OK’.”

Barbra Streisand hopes she has satisfied fans by opening up about her life and career in her new design book – because writing a full-blown autobiography is still “too personal” a task.

But the singer still refuses to embark on a tell-all – because sharing details of her life is too daunting a task.
She tells the Associated Press, “People have been asking me to write my autobiography, but I don’t want to go there yet and be that personal.”
