Pierre-Auguste Renoir | La plage du Lavandou, 1894

Pierre-Auguste Renoir was a visitor to Le Lavandou in 1894.
Le Lavandou is a commune in the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France.

Carlo Fornara | Divisionist painter

Carlo Fornara (21 October 1871 - 15 September 1968) was an Italian neo-impressionist and divisionist painter🎨.
Born in Prestinone (Craveggia) into a humble family of Valle Vigezzo farmers in 1871, his talent emerged after he began attending courses in painting, drawing and ornamentation at the local Rossetti Valentini Art School in Santa Maria Maggiore, where he became close friends with other future painters such as Giovanni Battista Ciolina, Gian Maria Rastellini and Lorenzo Peretti Junior, and absorbed the teachings of Enrico Cavalli, a great connoisseur of the French art of the time, who decisively influenced him to follow the path of painting.

Neo-Impressionist Artists | Sitemap

Neo-Impressionism is a term applied to an avant-garde art movement that flourished principally in France from 1886-1906. Led by the example of Georges Seurat🎨, artists of the Neo-Impressionist circle renounced the random spontaneity of Impressionism🎨 in favor of a measured painting technique grounded in science and the study of optics.

Love Letter from Auguste Rodin to Camille Claudel, 1886

"My ferocious friend".... "Mia feroce amica"...

Thus begins Rodin’s🎨 desperate cry of love to Camille Claudel🎨 in the early years of their relationship. Rodin was soon captivated by this pupil who became his assistant, mistress and muse, while Claudel outwardly remained in complete control of her feelings. Consumed and tormented by an obsessive love, he implores her - “on his knees” - to ease his suffering from beginning to end of this letter, written in a muddled style, with erroneous syntax and imperfect spelling.

Lettera di Abramo Lincoln all'insegnante di suo figlio, 1830

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), sedicesimo presidente degli Stati Uniti, è rimasto nella storia perché nel settembre 1862, decretò la liberazione di tutti gli schiavi dai territori degli Stati Confederati d’America, ratificando il XIII emendamento della costituzione americana nel 1865.
Il primo giorno di scuola di suo figlio, Lincoln inviò all’insegnante di suo figlio una lettera.

Caro professore,
mio figlio inizia oggi la scuola: per lui, tutto sarà strano e nuovo per un po’ e desidero che sia trattato con delicatezza. È un’avventura che potrebbe portarlo ad attraversare continenti, un’avventura che, probabilmente, comprenderà guerre, tragedie e dolore. Vivere questa vita richiederà fede, amore e coraggio.
Dovrà imparare, lo so, che non tutti gli uomini sono giusti, che non tutti gli uomini sono sinceri.
Però gli insegni anche che per ogni delinquente, c’è un eroe;

Pedro Salinas / Giovanni Prini | Io di più non posso darti / I cannot give you more..

Io di più non posso darti
Non sono che quello che sono.
Ah come vorrei essere
sabbia, sole, in estate!
Che tu ti distendessi
riposata a riposare.
Che andando via tu mi lasciassi
il tuo corpo, impronta tenera,
tiepida, indimenticabile.

E che con te se ne andasse
sopra di te, il mio bacio lento:
colore,
dalla nuca al tallone,
bruno.

Pablo Neruda | Chiedo silenzio / I ask for silence / Pido silencio

Ora, lasciatemi tranquillo.
Ora, abituatevi senza di me.
Io chiuderò gli occhi

E voglio solo cinque cose,
cinque radici preferite.

Una è l'amore senza fine.

La seconda è vedere l'autunno.
Non posso vivere senza che le foglie
volino e tornino alla terra.

La terza è il grave inverno,
la pioggia che ho amato, la carezza
del fuoco nel freddo silvestre.

Victor Nizovtsev 1965 - Russian Fantasy painter
