Samuel Morse ~ Gallery of the Louvre



National Gallery of Art NGA, Washington

Known today primarily as the inventor of the telegraph, Samuel Finley Breese Morse (1791-1872) began his career as a painter. Born in Charlestown, Massachusetts, he attended Yale University, graduated in 1810, and moved to Boston. There he became the private pupil and friend of the painter Washington Allston, who introduced him to a traditional program of study that encompassed drawing, anatomy, and art theory.
With Allston’s encouragement, Morse went to London, where he met Benjamin West and was accepted as a student at the Royal Academy of Arts. Morse’s first major painting there, The Dying Hercules (1812-1813, Yale University Art Gallery), earned high praise. Returning home in 1815, full of optimism and national pride, Morse confronted an artistic climate unfavorably disposed to history painting in the grand manner and was forced to turn to portrait painting for financial support. Throughout the late 1810s and 1820s, he painted portraits of clients in cities and towns along the Atlantic seaboard.

Richard Diebenkorn ~ Abstract and Figurative Expressionism painter




By Michael Kimmelman, New York Times newspaper, March 31, 1993

Richard Diebenkorn 1922-1993, one of the premier American painters of the postwar era, whose deeply lyrical abstractions evoked the shimmering light and wide-open spaces of California, where he spent virtually his entire life, died yesterday at his home in Berkeley. He was 70.
The cause was respiratory failure after a long illness, said his dealer, Lawrence Rubin of M. Knoedler and Company in Manhattan.
Two rounds of open-heart surgery, pneumonia and a bout of radiation therapy over the last two years had hobbled Mr. Diebenkorn, making his breathing so difficult that eventually his creative efforts were limited to drawings and other small-scale works he could produce while bedridden. Even these, in the soft, bleached colors he favored, often suggested a vast scale.

Gabriel García Márquez ~ La marionetta | La lettera di Addio dello scrittore



Se per un istante Dio dimenticasse che sono una marionetta di stoffa e mi regalasse un poco di vita, probabilmente non direi tutto quello che penso, pero in definitiva penserei tutto quello che dico.

Darei valore alle cose, non per quello che valgono, ma per quello che significano.

Dormirei poco, sognerei di più, capisco che per ogni minuto che chiudiamo gli occhi, perdiamo sessanta secondi di luce.

Andrei avanti quando gli altri si fermano, mi sveglierei quando gli altri dormono.

Ascolterei quando gli altri parlano, e come

gusterei un buon gelato al cioccolato!

An impressionist I work alternately in acrylic or oil on canvas or panel, the sizes of my paintings range from small to large. Demateriaalkeuze often depends on the subject of my paintings.
The paint is often spontaneous and expressive with brushes or applied with a palette knife.
My color palette is mostly sunny mention.
