Bill Mack / Hermann Hesse ~ Tienimi per mano al tramonto..

Tienimi per mano al tramonto,
quando la luce del giorno si spegne e l’oscurità fa scivolare il suo drappo di stelle…
Tienila stretta quando non riesco a viverlo questo mondo imperfetto…
Tienimi per mano…
portami dove il tempo non esiste…
Tienila stretta nel difficile vivere.

Macchiaioli Art Movement | Sitemap

Niccolò Cannicci - Le gramignaie al fiume, 1896

Da sinistra seduti: Serafino de Tivoli, Saverio Altamura, Silvestro Lega, Ferdinando Bonamici. - Da sinistra in piedi: Giuseppe Bianchi, ignoto, Cristiano Banti, Odoardo Borrani.

The Macchiaioli were a group of Italian painters* active in Tuscany in the second half of the nineteenth century, who, breaking with the antiquated conventions taught by the Italian academies of art, did much of their painting outdoors* in order to capture natural light, shade and colour. 
This practice relates the Macchiaioli to the French Impressionists* who came to prominence a few years later, although the Macchiaioli pursued somewhat different purposes.

Giorgio De Chirico | Arte e pensiero

  • Un'opera d'arte per divenire immortale deve sempre superare i limiti dell'umano senza preoccuparsi né del buon senso né della logica.
  • L'arte deve creare sensazioni sconosciute in passato; spogliare l'arte dal comune e dall'accettato... sopprimere completamente l'uomo quale guida o come mezzo per esprimere dei simboli, delle sensazioni, dei pensieri, liberare la pittura una volta per tutte dall'antropomorfismo... vedere ogni cosa, anche l'uomo, nella sua qualità di cosa.

Kandinsky ~ Arte e pensiero...

  • L'arte oltrepassa i limiti nei quali il tempo vorrebbe comprimerla, ed indica il contenuto del futuro.
  • Il colore è un mezzo di esercitare sull'anima un'influenza diretta. Il colore è un tasto, l'occhio il martelletto che lo colpisce, l'anima lo strumento dalle mille corde.
  • Mi sembrava che l'anima viva dei colori emettesse un richiamo musicale, quando l'inflessibile volontà del pennello strappava loro una parte di vita.

Hermann Hesse ~ Favola d'Amore...


La "Favola d'Amore" di Hermann Hesse è un sogno, una favola illustrata da lui stesso e dedicata a Ruth Wenger, cantante lirica che diventò seconda moglie di Hesse due anni dopo la pubblicazione del manoscritto.
Appena giunto in paradiso Pictor si trovò dinnanzi ad un albero che era insieme uomo e donna. Pictor salutò l'albero con riverenza e chiese: "Sei tu l'albero della vita?". Ma quando, invece dell'albero, volle rispondergli il serpente, egli si voltò e andò oltre. Era tutt'occhi, ogni cosa gli piaceva moltissimo. Sentiva chiaramente di trovarsi nella patria e alla fonte della vita.
E di nuovo vide un albero, che era insieme sole e luna. Pictor chiese: "Sei tu l'albero della vita?".
