Melozzo da Forlì ~ Gli Angeli musicanti

Melozzo di Giuliano degli Ambrosi, detto Melozzo da Forlì [1438-1494], è stato un pittore Italiano e architetto, massimo esponente della scuola forlivese di pittura nel XV secolo. Unì l'uso illusionistico della prospettiva, tipico di Andrea Mantegna, a figure monumentali rese con colori limpidi, vicine ai modi di Piero della Francesca. La luce tersa della sua pittura richiama quella dei "pittori di luce" fiorentini, come Domenico Veneziano e l'ultimo Beato Angelico. Fu il primo a praticare con grande successo lo scorcio dal basso, "l'arte del sotto in su, la più difficile e la più rigorosa". Tra i discepoli diretti, si segnala il pittore Marco Palmezzano, certamente il più famoso, anch'egli appartenente alla scuola forlivese. In architettura, influì fortemente sull'opera di un altro forlivese, Pace di Maso del Bombace.

Piero della Francesca

Piero della Francesca, il cui vero nome era Piero di Benedetto de' Franceschi [1416/1417-1492], è stato un pittore Italiano e matematico. Tra le personalità più emblematiche del Rinascimento italiano, fu un esponente della seconda generazione di pittori-umanisti. Le sue opere sono mirabilmente sospese tra arte, geometria e un complesso sistema di lettura a più livelli, dove confluiscono complesse questioni teologiche, filosofiche e d'attualità. Riuscì ad armonizzare, nella vita quanto nelle opere, i valori intellettuali e spirituali del suo tempo, condensando molteplici influssi e mediando tra tradizione e modernità, tra religiosità e nuove affermazioni dell'Umanesimo, tra razionalità ed estetica.

James Abbott McNeill Whistler | Tonalist painter

James Abbott McNeill Whistler [1834-1903], pittore Americano, nacque a Lowell, nel Massachusetts. Nel 1843 suo padre si trasferì con la famiglia in Russia, per lavorare alla linea ferroviaria San Pietroburgo, Mosca. Nel 1849, alla morte del padre, Whistler tornò negli Stati Uniti con la madre e nel 1851 entrò nella scuola militare di West Point, che abbandonò nel 1854 per dedicarsi al disegno e all'incisione.
Nel 1855 si trasferì in Europa, prima a Parigi, dove entrò in contatto con Henri Fantin-Latour e Gustave Courbet, e poi a Londra, dove trascorse quasi tutta la vita. In questi anni Whistler conobbe i pittori Pre-Raffaelliti: la loro amicizia, in particolare quella con Dante Gabriel Rossetti, ne influenzò lo stile, soprattutto nella scelta di temi semplici e quotidiani.

Chris Jordan, 1963 ~ Intollerabile bellezza

Con delle bizzarre e monumentali fotografie a colori vivaci, immagini e composizioni suggestive, il fotografo Americano Chris Jordan, denunzia gli effetti della società consumistica improntata ad un frenetico "usa-e-getta", come l'uccello morto, in stato di decomposizione e con la pancia piena zeppa di plastica, che l’uccello ha probabilmente mangiato scambiandolo per cibo!

Auguste Rodin ~ Gli aforismi

  • L'artista deve creare una scintilla prima di poter accendere il fuoco e prima che l'arte nasca; l'artista deve essere pronto ad essere consumato dal fuoco della propria creazione.
  • Non vi è una perdita di tempo se si utilizza l'esperienza con saggezza.
  • Ci sono forze sconosciute in natura; quando ci doniamo totalmente a lei, senza riserve, lei le presta a noi; lei ci mostra queste forme, che i nostri occhi che guardano non vedono, che la nostra intelligenza non capisce o nemmeno sospetta.

Abstract Fractal Art

Fu il matematico Benoît Mandelbrot [1924-2010] a creare il nome frattale nel 1975, quando, cercando un nome che potesse descrivere i suoi oggetti, sfogliando il vocabolario di latino del figlio, s'imbatté nell'aggettivo fractus, che, per la sua risonanza con parole come frattura e frazione, sembrò adattissimo allo scopo. Il suo lavoro fu pubblicato nel libro "Les objets fractals, forn, hasard et dimension", 1975 e più compiutamente nel libro "The fractal geometry of nature" in 1982.
Il successo fu travolgente. Oggi i frattali irrompono in ogni campo: suscitano l'interesse degli scienziati e la curiosità del grande pubblico, al punto che oggetti frattali si trovano comunemente in vendita.

Kahlil Gibran ~ Sul dolore

Il dolore è lo spezzarsi del guscio
che racchiude la vostra conoscenza.
Come il nocciolo del frutto deve spezzarsi
affinché il suo cuore possa esporsi al sole,
così voi dovete conoscere il dolore.
E se riusciste a custodire in cuore la meraviglia
per i prodigi quotidiani della vita,
il dolore non vi meraviglierebbe meno della gioia;
accogliereste le stagioni del vostro cuore
come avreste sempre accolto le stagioni
che passano sui campi.

Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin [1848-1903] was a leading French Post-Impressionist artist. He was an important figure in the Symbolist movement as a painter, sculptor, print-maker, ceramist and writer. His bold experimentation with colouring led directly to the Synthetist style of modern art while his expression of the inherent meaning of the subjects in his paintings, under the influence of the cloisonnist style, paved the way to Primitivism and the return to the pastoral. He was also an influential proponent of wood engraving and woodcuts as art forms.

Franz Kafka | Domenica saremo insieme | Lettere d'amore

"L'amore non è un problema, come non lo è un veicolo: problematici sono soltanto il conducente, i viaggiatori e la strada" - Franz Kafka.
Kafka rifiutava la carnalità e la sua stessa corporeità. Egli stesso racconta il disgusto per il proprio corpo quando il padre accompagnandolo in piscina lo costringeva a denudarsi. Lo stesso senso di ripugnanza egli lo esprimeva nei confronti dell'amore sessuale che descrive ad esempio ne "Il castello" come qualcosa di sporco e che riduceva l'uomo all'animalità.
Nella sua vita Kafka ebbe tre relazioni, maggiormente epistolari.
La più significativa rimase la relazione con la Felice Bauer 1887-1960, una steno-dattilografa prussiana d'origini ebraiche, la donna che liberò la forza creatrice di Kafka.
Franz Kafka, lo scrittore boemo, tra i maggiori del Novecento, incontrò Felice Bauer a Praga, in casa dell'amico Max Brod, la sera del 13 agosto del 1912. Lui aveva 29 anni e lei 25, arrivata a Praga per lavoro.
Kafka la osservò per tutta la serata, per descriverla in seguito nella raccolta "Lettere a Felice" 1912-1917, pubblicata a cura di Erich Heller e Jürgen Born: Non è particolarmente bella: pelle secca, dentatura irregolare, capelli atoni, naso quasi rotto, mento robusto, viso ossuto e vuoto.
Neanche il vestiario trascurato, quasi casalingo, ha qualcosa di attrattivo.
Eppure c’è qualcosa in lei che lo colpisce.

Un mese e mezzo dopo il loro primo incontro, il 20 settembre del 1912, Kafka le scrive la prima lettera:

Gentile Signorina,
Per il caso facilmente possibile che Lei possa non ricordarsi minimamente di me, mi presento un’altra volta: mi chiamo Franz Kafka e sono quello che per la prima volta La salutò a Praga quella sera in casa del Direttore Brod, poi le porse da un lato all’altro della tavola fotografie di un viaggio da Talia, l’una dopo l’altra, e infine con questa mano che ora batte i tasti, tenne la Sua con la quale Lei confermò la promessa di fare con lui l’anno venturo un viaggio in Palestina”.

- "Il mio atelier?Ma non ho mai avuto un atelier, io, e non capisco come ci si possa chiudere in una stanza.Per disegnare si, non certo per dipingere".

Kees van Dongen | Fauve painter


French painter and printmaker of Dutch birth. He took evening classes in geometric drawing from 1892 to 1897 at the Akademie voor Beeldende Kunsten in Rotterdam. In 1895 he began working intermittently for the newspaper Rotterdamsche Nieuwsblad, for which he made, among other things, a series of bright watercolour drawings of Rotterdam’s red-light district and illustrations of Queen Wilhelmina’s coronation. Van Dongen’s first paintings used dark tones in imitation of Rembrandt, who remained the most important model for his work; his later book on Rembrandt was, in fact, a projection of his own life.

Ziegfeld girls ~ Vintage portrait

Alfred Cheney Johnston [1885-1971] was an American photographer, known for his portraits of Ziegfeld Follies showgirls as well as of 1920s and 1930s actors and actresses. The only book known to have been published by Alfred Cheney Johnston during his lifetime devoted to his nudes/glamour photography is the 1937 spiral-bound softcover "Enchanting Beauty", which contains 94 black-and-white photos, mostly about 7x9 inches, centered on a 9x12-inch page, although a number are cropped circular or in other designs. Unusually, compared to virtually all other examples of his work seen today on the Web or other sources, which were shot in an indoor studio in front of a flat-black or illustrated tapestry background cloth, 37 of these photos were taken outdoors along a stream or in flower-dappled fields, etc. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, all the shots in the book are "airbrushed" in the pubic area, to keep them legal with respect to the publishing standards of the day.
