Salon de Paris, 1667-1890 | Art History

Hubert Robert🎨 | The Grande Galerie of the Louvre, 1801

The Salon de Paris beginning in 1667 was the official art exhibition of the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
For almost 150 years (c.1740-1890), the Salon was the most prestigious annual or biannual art event in the world.
As a result, its influence on French painting - in particular artistic style, painterly conventions and the reputation of artists - was enormous.
At the 1761 Salon, thirty-three painters, nine sculptors, and eleven engravers contributed.
From 1881 onward, it has been managed by the Société des Artistes Français.

Vermeer | A Young Woman standing at a Virginal, 1670-1672


The richly dressed lady playing a virginal stands in a prosperous Dutch home with paintings on the wall, a marble-tiled floor, and a skirting of locally produced Delft blue and white tiles. The two paintings on the wall behind her cannot be identified with certainty.
The small landscape on the left and the painting decorating the lid of the virginal resemble works by Vermeer🎨’s Delft colleague Pieter Groenewegen.
The second painting, attributed to Cesar van Everdingen, shows the motif of Cupid holding a card. This figure derives from a contemporary emblem. It may either refer to the idea of faithfulness to one lover or, in conjunction with the virginal, to the traditional association of music and love.

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.
