Shakespeare / Yves Pires | Tu sei per la mia mente, come cibo per la vita...

Yves Pires - French sculptor
Yves Pires - French sculptor

Tu sei per la mia mente, come cibo per la vita.
Come le piogge di primavera, sono per la terra.
E per goderti in pace, combatto la stessa guerra
che conduce un avaro, per accumular ricchezza.
Prima, orgoglioso di possedere e, subito dopo,
roso dal dubbio, che il tempo gli scippi il tesoro.
Prima, voglioso di restare solo con te,
poi, orgoglioso che il mondo veda il mio piacere.

Diego Velázquez (1599-1660) | Baroque painter


Velázquez🎨 was born in 1599 in Seville in southern Spain, at that time an important city with a thriving artistic community. At the age of eleven, Velázquez was apprenticed to Francisco Pacheco, Seville's most significant artist and art theorist.
From Pacheco, Velázquez learned the technical skills of drawing and painting, still-life and portraiture and soon surpassed his master. Unlike the more traditional Pacheco, he responded to the techniques of modern innovators such as Caravaggio🎨. (Caravaggio was famous for his dark, dramatically lit works and un-idealised models. Copies of his paintings spread all over Europe.)

Tondo Art

Woman with wax tablets and stylus, so called Sappho | Fresco | Pompeii, Naples, National Archaeological Museum

A tondo (plural "tondi" or "tondos") is a Renaissance🎨 term for a circular work of art, either a painting or a sculpture.
The word derives from the Italian rotondo, "round".
The term is usually not used in English for small round paintings, but only those over about 60 cm (two feet) in diameter, thus excluding many round portrait miniatures - for sculpture the threshold is rather lower.

Simone Cantarini (1612-1648) | Baroque painter


Simone Cantarini was born in Pesaro, in the Marches, a region which was a crossroads for artists from many parts of Italy.
Cantarini began his artistic training quite young, probably 1623-1625, in the studio of Giovanni Giacomo Pandolfi (?1570-1640?), a painter of religious works who combined the local naturalism with the mannerist style of the late sixteenth century.
After a brief trip to Venice, Cantarini moved to the shop of Claudio Ridolfi (?1570-1644), a student of Paolo Veronese🎨 (1528-1588).
