Credited with "restoring hard rock to the forefront of the music scene", Van Halen is known for its energetic live shows and for the work of its acclaimed lead guitarist, Eddie Van Halen. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. From 1974 until 1985, Van Halen consisted of Eddie Van Halen; Eddie's brother, drummer Alex Van Halen; vocalist David Lee Roth; and bassist Michael Anthony. Upon its release, the band's self-titled debut album reached No. 19 on the Billboard pop music charts. By the early 1980s, Van Halen was one of the most successful rock acts of the time. The album 1984 was a hit; its lead single, "Jump", is the band's only U.S. number one single to date and was internationally known. In 1985, Van Halen replaced Roth with former Montrose lead vocalist Sammy Hagar. With Hagar, the group released four U.S. number-one albums over the course of 11 years (5150 in 1986, OU812 in 1988, For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge in 1991, and Balance in 1995). Hagar left the band in 1996 shortly before the release of the band's first greatest hits collection, Best Of – Volume I. Former Extreme frontman Gary Cherone replaced Hagar, remaining with the band until 1999; Van Halen then went on hiatus until reuniting with Hagar for a worldwide tour in 2003. The following year, the band released The Best of Both Worlds, its second greatest hits collection. Hagar again left Van Halen in 2005; in 2006, Roth returned as lead vocalist. Anthony was fired from the band in 2006 and was replaced on bass guitar by Wolfgang Van Halen, Eddie's son.

As of March 2019, Van Halen is 20th on the RIAA list of best-selling artists in the United States; the band has sold 56 million albums in the States and more than 80 million worldwide, making them one of the best-selling groups of all time.

Turkish Van

Turkish Van

The Turkish Van is a longhaired breed of domestic cat with genetic origins in Turkey. The breed is commonly believed to be descended from the landrace of Van cats, mostly found near Lake Van, though one of the two original breeders has stated that none of the original cats used to found the formal breed came from the Van area. The breed is thought to be rare, and is distinguished by the Van colour pattern, where the colour is restricted to the head and the tail, and the rest of the cat is white; this is due to the expression of the piebald white spotting gene, a type of partial leucism. A Van may have blue or amber eyes, or be odd-eyed, having one eye of each colour. The Turkish Van is nicknamed the swimming cat, but the idea that the breed likes water more than other cats may be mistaken. The breed was developed in Britain from a selection of Van cats obtained that came from various cities of Turkey. It was first recognised by a breeder/fancier organisation, the UK-based Governing Council of the Cat Fancy, in 1969. The term "Turkish Vankedisi" is used by some organisations as a name for all-white specimens of the formal Turkish Van breed, and is easily confused with the landrace Van cat, the Turkish name of which is Van kedisi.

Van Wilder

Van Wilder

National Lampoon's Van Wilder (released internationally as Van Wilder: Party Liaison) is a 2002 romantic comedy film directed by Walt Becker and written by Brent Goldberg and David T. Wagner. This movie was said to be inspired by the real life experiences of Bert Kreischer while he attended Florida State University. National Lampoon's Van Wilder stars Ryan Reynolds as the title character alongside Tara Reid, Kal Penn, and Tim Matheson. The film follows the misadventures of its lead character Van Wilder, a seventh year senior, who has made his life goal in helping undergrads at Coolidge College succeed in the future. An article is then written for the campus newspaper by a fellow student, Gwen Pearson, played by Reid, bringing to light Van Wilder's college life. This attracts the attention of Van's father, played by Matheson, which leads to his tuition being cut off. Van Wilder gets stuck in the middle of a love triangle between Gwen and her mean-spirited boyfriend, Richard "Dick" Bagg (Daniel Cosgrove) while struggling to graduate. Van tries various schemes to earn enough money to pay his tuition and graduate, with help from Gwen and the rest of the student body, except a couple of sinister enemies who attempt to sabotage his efforts. A sequel, Van Wilder: The Rise of Taj, was released on December 1, 2006. A prequel, Van Wilder: Freshman Year, was released straight-to-DVD on July 14, 2009.

Verschuer

Verschuer

Verschuer (originally van der Schuer) is a Dutch noble family originally from Appelrebroeck near Barneveld in Gelderland. The family has branches in The Netherlands and Germany. The family name is spelled van Verschuer in Dutch and von Verschuer in German. The family can be traced back to Gaert Clasz (born 1490), who married Margriet van der Schuer, the widow of Brant van der Schuer. Gaert died after 1549, and his sons adopted the family name van der Schuer. In the late 17th century Otto Christoph van Verschuer (1650–1712) was the sole living male member of the family, and the current family is descended from him. He was a Dutch colonel and later a general in the service of Hesse-Kassel, and received the title of baron from the Holy Roman Emperor in 1696. Otto Christoph van Verschuer was the father of Wolff Dietrich van (von) Verschuer (1676–1737), who became a Swedish general and who has descendants who belonged to the Hessian nobility, and Philip Willem van Verschuer (Philipp Wilhelm von Verschuer), who became a Dutch brigadier and who has numerous prominent descendants in The Netherlands. The Hessian family branch were recognised as barons of the Electorate of Hesse in 1839. Bernard van Verschuer, a Dutch colonel and a member of the Dutch branch, was recognised as noble in The Netherlands in 1816 and granted the Dutch baronial title in 1820.

Salinero

Salinero

IPS Salinero (formerly Keltec Salinero and Gestion Salinero) is a horse ridden by the Dutch equestrian Anky van Grunsven in the sport of dressage.Salinero was expected to be a jumper, and is a full brother to Olympic show jumper Seven Up, but when Sjef Janssen noticed the potential the horse had for dressage, he purchased him for American Tess Guilder. After the gelding did well at the lower levels, Sjef and his wife Anky purchased him for themselves.Anky van Grunsven has since achieved success with the gelding, winning the individual gold medal at the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games and numerous international Grands Prix. On Salinero, she won the title at Aachen in 2004, making her the first Dutch rider to win there. As of late 2008, Salinero competed under the name "IPS Salinero," changed from the former Gestion Salinero and Keltec Salinero. Salinero is very sensitive, and during the earliest stages of his Grand Prix career he could get tense. However, as he has matured, the gelding has become more relaxed and his scores have improved. After his rides, Salinero is rewarded with bananas. At age 16 (2010), Salinero retired from the big shows. However, injury to van Grunsven's IPS Upido caused her to bring Salinero back in her bid for the 2012 Olympics. Salinero's return to the big shows was at CDIO Saumur (26–29 April 2012), where the combination placed second.On June 24, 2012, Salinero and Anky van Grunsven were officially added to the 2012 Dutch Olympic Dressage Team along with Adelide Cornelissen (Parzival) and Edward Gal (Undercover). Van Grunsven and Salinero turned in a performance that helped to capture the team bronze medal for the Netherlands on August 2, 2012, despite the fact that Van Grunsven's husband and national team coach, Sjef Janssen, had gotten violently ill the previous night. Salinero's last ride came at the Olympic Individual Dressage Competition on August 9, 2012. The 18-year-old horse posted a score of 82.000%, which earned sixth place overall. An emotional van Grunsven refused to leave Salinero's side long after the event completed. Salinero has retired to pasture at van Grunsven's residence in the Netherlands.

Blarenberghe

Blarenberghe

Van Blarenberghe was the name of a dynasty of painters, originally from French Flanders (Lille) but some of the most famous descendants also lived in Paris, France. They were all descendants from Joris van Blarenberghe (1612–1670). The first two painters were Hendrick van Blarenberghe (1646–1712) and his son Jacques-Guillaume van Blarenberghe (1679–1742). Their style was still heavily influenced by the Flemish Baroque style. Jacques-Guillaume had two painting sons, Louis-Nicolas van Blarenberghe (15 July 1716 – 1 May 1794) and Henri Désiré van Blarenberghe (1734–1812). Louis-Nicolas had a son who was also a painter and with whom he often collaborated: Henri-Joseph van Blarenberghe (24 November 1750 – 1 December 1826). Together with his father, they stayed at the Palace of Versailles, where they worked as miniaturists for the high society of their day. They were especially famous for their paintings on snuff boxes. Louis-Nicolas also worked as official campaign painter of the French court, following the French army as a war reporter. Two of his daughters, Catherine-Henriette and Isabelle, were chamber maids to the children of the French kings. The works of Louis-Nicolas and Henri-Joseph were collected in profusion in the 19th century by the Rothschild family. There is a collection of their work on public display at Waddesdon Manor. An enormous collection of Blarenberghe art was sold in the Mentmore Towers sale of 1977. Henri-Joseph painted, besides the miniatures, mainly Panoramic paintings, often in gouache. The subjects were, as with his father, often military, and also included the French revolution. He was the drawing teacher of the French princes, and founder and first conservator of the Palais des Beaux-Arts de Lille.

Huchtenburg

Huchtenburg

J(oh)an and Jacob van Huchtenburg (Hughtenburg or Hugtenburg(h)) were two Dutch Golden Age painters in the second half of the seventeenth century. Both brothers were natives of Haarlem, moved to Paris, but died in Amsterdam. The main source about their lives is from Arnold Houbraken. Some of the information from the 19th century is contradictive.Jacob van Huchtenburg (1644, Haarlem - bur. January 8, 1675, Amsterdam) studied under Nicolaes Pieterszoon Berchem. In 1662 he went to Italy and stayed in Rome until 1667. On his way back to Holland he stayed in Paris for more than a year, where he probably met up with his brother Jan. In 1669 he joined the Haarlem artists' guild. His pictures are probably confounded with those of his brother. He became well-to-do and lived on Prinsengracht. One is in the Brukenthal Museum, Sibiu. Jan van Huchtenburg (bapt. November 20, 1647, Haarlem - bur. July 2, 1733, Amsterdam), was a famous Dutch horse and battle painter, like Esaias van de Velde and Philip Wouwermans. He was first taught by Thomas Wijck. On his way to visit his brother in Rome, he may not have got further than Paris, where he served under Antony Francis van der Meulen in the Manufacture des Gobelins employing him for illustrating, sketching or designing. In 1670 he settled at Haarlem, where he married Elisabeth Mommes. It seems he practised and kept a dealers shop in Haarlem or in the Hague. His style had now merged into an imitation of Wouwerman and Van der Meulen, which could not fail to produce pretty pictures of hunts and robber camps, the faculty of painting horses and men in action and varied dress being the chief point of attraction. Huchtenburg assisted Gerrit Berckheyde and painted his people and horses.Later Huchtenburg ventured on cavalry skirmishes and engagements of regular troops generally, and these were admired by Prince Eugene of Savoy and King William III, who gave the painter sittings, and commissioned him to throw upon canvas the chief incidents of the battles they fought upon the continent of Europe. When he died at Bloemgracht in the Jordaan in 1733, Huchtenburg had done much by his pictures and prints to make Prince Eugene, King William and Marlborough popular. Though clever in depicting a mile or a skirmish of dragoons, he remained second to Philip Wouvermans in accuracy of drawing, and inferior to Van der Meulen in the production of landscapes. But, nevertheless, he was a clever and spirited master, with great facility of hand and considerable natural powers of observation. The earliest date on his pictures is 1674, when he executed the Stag-Hunt in the Museum of Berlin, and the Fight with Robbers in the Liechtenstein Museum at Vienna. A Skirmish at Fleurus (1690) in the Brussels gallery seems but the precursor of larger and more powerful works, such as the Siege of Namur (1695) in the Belvedere at Vienna, where William III is seen in the foreground accompanied by Max Emmanuel, the Bavarian elector. Three years before, Huchtenburg had had sittings from Prince Eugene and William III. After 1696 he regularly served as court painter to Prince Eugene, and we have at [a] Galleria Sabauda a series of ten or eleven canvases, all of the same size depicting the various battles of the great hero, commencing with the Battle of Zenta (1697), Battle of Chiari (1701), Battle of Luzzara (1702), Battle of Blenheim (1704), Battle of Cassano (1705), Battle of Turin (1706), Battle of Oudenaarde (1708), Battle of Malplaquet (1709), Battle of Petrovaradin (1716) ending with the Battle of Belgrade (1717). Had the Duke of Marlborough been fond of art he would doubtless have possessed many works of our artist. All that remained in 1911 at Blenheim Palace, however, was a couple of sketches of battles, which were probably sent to Churchill by his great contemporary. In 1911, the pictures of Huchtenburg were not very numerous in public galleries. There was one in the National Gallery, London, another at the Louvre. But Copenhagen had four, Dresden six, Gotha two, and Munich had the well-known composition of Tallart taken Prisoner at Blenheim in 1704.
