Vladimir Volegov and Jaroslav Seifert


Prima che asciughino quei due o tre baci
sulla fronte
e qui e lí,
ti chinerai per bere
acqua d’argento dallo specchio,
e se nessuno ti starà a guardare
ti toccherai le labbra con la bocca.

C’è un tempo in cui piú svelto delle dita
che lo scultore passa sulla creta
il sangue impaziente ti modella
il corpo dal di dentro.

Jaroslav Seifert | Fragment of a Letter / Frammento di una lettera

All night rain lashed the windows.
I couldn’t go to sleep.
So I switched on the light
and wrote a letter.

Per tutta la notte la pioggia sferzava le finestre.
Non potrei andare a dormire
Quindi ho acceso la luce
e ho scritto una lettera.

Alphonse Mucha (Czech Art Nouveau Printmaker, 1860-1939)

Czech art is the visual and plastic arts that have been created in the present day Czech Republic and the various states that occupied the Czech lands in the preceding centuries.
The Czech lands have produced artists that have gained recognition throughout the world, including Alfons Mucha, widely regarded as one of the key exponents of the Art Nouveau style, and František Kupka, a pioneer of abstract art.
The lands now forming the Czech Republic have produced several important finds of prehistoric art, notably the Venus of Dolní Věstonice, a pottery Venus figurine dated to 29,000-25,000 BC, and a distinct style of Celtic art.
