George Inness | Quotes / Aforismi

George Inness🎨 (1825-1894) was an American artist🎨 whose landscapes melded the paint handling of the French Barbizon School🎨 with subject matter specific to the changing American countryside.

The true use of art is, first, to cultivate the artist's own spiritual nature.
Il vero uso dell'arte è, in primo luogo, coltivare la natura spirituale dell'artista.

The true end of art is not to imitate a fixed material condition, but to represent a living emotion.

La vera fine dell'Arte non è imitare una condizione materiale fissa, ma rappresentare un movimento vivente.

Pablo Neruda | Ode all'autunno

Modest is the autumn, like the woodcutters.
It's costly to cut all the leaves
off all the trees of all places.
In spring they're sewn on in flight
and now you must let them fall
as if they were little yellow birds:
it isn't easy.
You need time.

Vincent van Gogh🎨 | Autumn Garden, 1888

Jaroslav Seifert | Fragment of a Letter / Frammento di una lettera

All night rain lashed the windows.
I couldn’t go to sleep.
So I switched on the light
and wrote a letter.

Per tutta la notte la pioggia sferzava le finestre.
Non potrei andare a dormire
Quindi ho acceso la luce
e ho scritto una lettera.

Edvard Munch | Paintings and Quotes / Aforismi

By painting colors and lines and forms seen in quickened mood I was seeking to make this mood vibrate as a phonograph does. This was the origin of the paintings in The Frieze of Life.
Attraverso l'arte cerco di vedere chiaro nella mia relazione con il mondo, e se possibile aiutare anche chi osserva le mie opere a capirle, a guardarsi dentro.
To die is as if one's eyes had been put out and one cannot see anything any more. Perhaps it is like being shut in a cellar. One is abandoned by all. They have slammed the door and are gone. One does not see anything and notices only the damp smell of putrefaction.
