“What an artist dies with me!

Nero [A.D. 37-68] From SUETONIUS, Nero, sec. 49

Nero was Roman Emperor from 54 to 68, and the last in the Julio-Claudian dynasty. Nero was adopted by his grand-uncle Claudius to become his heir and successor, and succeeded to the throne in 54 following Claudius’ death.

Jose Ramón Gil Samaniego, best known as Ramón Novarro (February 6, 1899 – October 30, 1968), was a Mexican-American film, stage and television actor who began his career in silent films in 1917 and eventually became a leading man and one of the top box office attractions of the 1920s and early 1930s. Novarro was promoted by MGM as a “Latin lover” and became known as a sex symbol after the death of Rudolph Valentino.

Paul Leonard Newman was an American actor, film director, entrepreneur, professional racing driver and team owner, environmentalist, activist and philanthropist.

New Order are an English rock band formed in 1980, currently consisting of founding members Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert, alongside newer members Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman.

I don’t love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz,
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:

Pablo Neruda was the pen name and, later, legal name of the Chilean poet-diplomat and politician Ricardo Eliécer Neftalí Reyes Basoalto. He derived his pen name from the Czech poet Jan Neruda. Neruda won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1971.

Isamu Noguchi was an American artist and landscape architect whose artistic career spanned six decades, from the 1920s onward.

I am taking part in the April A to Z Blog Challenge. Every day in the month of April, I will post a blog entry related to a letter of the alphabet.
