Leonardo da Vinci ~ Differenza infra poesia e pittura

  Trattato della Pittura - Parte prima /18
La pittura immediate ti si rappresenta con quella dimostrazione per la quale il suo fattore l'ha generata, e dà quel piacere al senso massimo, qual dare possa alcuna cosa creata dalla natura. Ed in questo caso il poeta, che manda le medesime cose al comun senso per la via dell'udito, minor senso, non dà all'occhio altro piacere che se uno sentisse raccontare una cosa. Or vedi che differenza è dall'udir raccontare una cosa che dia piacere all'occhio con lunghezza di tempo, o vederla con quella prestezza che si vedono le cose naturali. Ed ancorché le cose de' poeti sieno con lungo intervallo di tempo lette, spesse sono le volte che le non sono intese, e bisogna farvi sopra diversi comenti, ne' quali rarissime volte tali comentatori intendono qual fosse la mente del poeta; e molte volte i lettori non leggono se non piccola parte delle loro opere per disagio di tempo. Ma l'opera del pittore immediate è compresa da' suoi risguardatori.

Barbara Jaskiewicz, 1957 ~ Impressionist Palette Knife painter


Polish painter Barbara Jaskiewicz was born in Wroclaw, the city in which she still lives today. She graduated from the Wroclaw University of Technology with a BA in Architecture. She paints in oils and watercolor and she also draws. Her subject matter is wide ranging, beginning with landscapes inspired by the noble sceneries found in the south of France, wild Alpine meadows or the picturesque valleys of the Tatra Mountains. Gardens and park promenades scattered within the trees of ancient forests, landscapes of Silesian lowlands and of Lubelszczyzna (situated in SE-Poland) appear to an equal degree.
