Chilean Artists

Chilean art refers to all kinds of visual art developed in Chile, or by Chileans, from the arrival of the Spanish conquerors to the modern day. It also includes the native pre-Columbian pictorial expression on modern Chilean territory.

Pre-Columbian art

Ceramics were the greatest artistic contribution of the northern peoples. These examples of Diaguita ceramics show this people's fascination with geometric figures.
Prehistoric painting in Chile, also called pre-Columbian Chilean painting, refers to any type of painting or painting technique used to represent objects or people during the period before the Spanish conquest.
Developed prior to the existence of written sources, study of this period is based on the material remains and vestiges of the cultures that developed.

Pablo Neruda | Per tanto amore la mia vita.. / De tanto amor mi vida..

Per tanto amore la mia vita si tinse di viola
e andai di rotta in rotta come gli uccelli ciechi
fino a raggiungere la tua finestra, amica mia:
tu sentisti un rumore di cuore infranto

e lì dalle tenebre mi sollevai al tuo petto,
senz'essere e senza sapere andai alla torre del frumento,
sorsi per vivere tra le tue mani,
mi sollevai dal mare alla tua gioia.

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
