Kahlil Gibran | Il pittore / The painter

Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931)🎨 - Lebanese-American writer, poet, visual artist - painted more than 700 pictures, watercolors and drawings.
In 1930, Gibran's final will reflected this similar desire: "Everything found in my studio after my death - pictures, books, objects of art, ecc. - goes to Mrs. Mary Haskell Minis🎨, now living at 24 Gaston Street West, Savannah, Ga. But I would like to have Mrs. Minis send all, or any part of these things, to my hometown, should she see fit to do so".
After Gibran's death in 1931, Mary Haskell Minis🎨 both directly and indirectly placed Gibran's art in numerous public collections including The Fogg Art Museum in Cambridge-Massachusetts, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, and the Newark Museum in Newark-New Jersey.

Kahlil Gibran | Love letter to Mary Haskell / Lettera d'amore a Mary Haskell, 1912

New York, 7th January 1912
Now I will say goodnight, as any other time.
I kiss you and then I say goodnight
and then I open the door and then I go out to the streets
with a full heart and a hungry soul.
But I always come again
to kiss you and to say goodnight
and to open the door and to go out to the street
with hungry soul and full heart.

Kahlil🎨

New York - domenica pomeriggio, 7 gennaio 1912
Ora ti do la buonanotte, come ogni altra volta.
Ti bacio e poi ti auguro la buonanotte,
e poi apro la porta e poi esco per le strade
con il cuore pieno e l’anima affamata.
Ma continuo a tornare, ancora e sempre,
per baciarti e augurarti la buonanotte
e aprire la porta e uscire per la strada
con l’anima affamata e il cuore pieno.
Kahlil🎨

Franz Liszt | Classical composer | Quotes / Aforismi

  • Music embodies feeling without forcing it to contend and combine with thought, as it is forced in most arts and especially in the art of words.
  • I conclude that the Wagnerian operas which are already in the repertoire, and other master works as well, stand in no further need of my services.
  • I did not compose my work as one might put on a church vestment… rather it sprung from the truly fervent faith of my heart, such as I have felt it since my childhood.
  • I find little in the works of Beethoven, Berlioz, Wagner and others when they are led by a conductor who functions like a windmill.
  • I foster a sorrowful conception of affection. Make no sacrifices.
  • In Hungary all native music, in its origin, is divided naturally into melody destined for song or melody for the dance.
  • Inspiration is enough to give expression to the tone in singing, especially when the song is without words.
  • It is impossible to imagine a more complete fusion with nature than that of the Gypsy.
  • It is my fervent wish and my greatest ambition to leave a work with a few useful instructions for the pianists after me.

Peder Severin Krøyer | Impressionist painter

Peder Severin Krøyer (23 July 1851 - 21 November 1909) portrayed the life of the artists. Scenes such as walking along the beach, dining together, and the magnificent atmosphere of the evenings in the moonlight was Krøyer’s chosen motifs.
Krøyer was 14 years old when he first enrolled to the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. He was quite talented as an artist, and he was respected as a portrait painter, which by this time was a very prestigious genre.
In the beginning of his career he was a very sought after painter and worked plenty of orders. This was the common way for painters to work back then, until the artistic revolution of the impressionist painters.

Johan Christian Dahl | Romantic painter

Born in Bergen Norway, and trained at the Copenhagen Academy, Johan Christian Clausen Dahl (1788-1857) nonetheless spent most of his working career in Germany.
He is thus claimed by all three schools for their own, although it was his influence on the latter that was more important, as from 1824 until his death he held the senior professorship of art at the Dresden Academy.
His memories of his homeland, however, provided him with themes that he reused throughout his career, but it was his attention to nature and use of the plein-air🎨 sketch that earned him the Dresden appointment in preference to Friedrich🎨.

Camille Claudel, Debussy and La Valse, 1891

Created at the height of her artistic career, Camille Claudel's🎨 La Valse, is a stunning example of the sophistication and skill of the young sculptress.
This dynamic rendering of a couple in movement, with its detailed and complex treatment surface and form, is considered among her best sculptures.
Claudel created La Valse near the end of her 10 year love affair with Auguste Rodin🎨, a passionate relationship filled with conflict, hard work, disputes and ultimately disappointment. One of her most erotic sculptures, Claudel presented her dancers naked in the first version, which has sadly since disappeared.

Trisha Lambi, 1962 | Figurative painter🖌

Trisha Lambi🎨: "I am an Australian painter🎨 born in Warwick, a small country town in Queensland. I was raised on a farm as part of a large, happy family.
My earliest memories are of drawing and reading for my maiden aunts when I was about 4 or 5 while my brothers and sisters were having a great time playing outside!
I still love to draw and read - the maiden aunts didn't put me off..
Light on form is my inspiration.
My latest work represents a fusion of the figurative into landscape using strong lighting and moody palettes to provide dramatic narratives.
After school I started a Bachelor of Visual Arts however the lure of money and independence proved too strong and I joined the workforce.
