Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg | Neoclassical painter

Having won the Great Grand Prize for painting awarded by the Royal Danish Academy in 1809, the Danish painter Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg (1783-1853) set out from Copenhagen the following year with Rome as his ultimate destination.
He spent three years in Paris along the way, including one year as a pupil of the foremost European painter of the era, Jacques-Louis David.
Eckersberg was arguably David's most important foreign follower.
Absorbing both his austere Neoclassical idealism and his admonition never to stray from nature, the master's teachings prepared him for Rome as well as his subsequent career as a mentor to younger painters.

Io conosco il canto dell'Africa..

"Io conosco il canto dell'Africa,
della giraffa e della luna nuova africana distesa sul suo dorso,
degli aratri sui campi e delle facce sudate delle raccoglitrici di caffè,
ma l'Africa conosce il mio canto?
L'aria sulla pianura fremerà un colore che ho avuto su di me?
E i bambini inventeranno un gioco nel quale ci sia il mio nome?
O la luna piena far un'ombra sulla ghiaia del viale che mi assomigli?
E le aquile sulle colline Ngong guarderanno se ci sono?"

Monologo tratto dalla scena finale del film "Out of Africa" che fu prodotto e diretto nel 1985 dal regista di "Come eravamo", Sydney Pollack, e sceneggiato da Kurt Luedtke.
"Out of Africa" è stato uno dei maggiori successi del cinema (240 milioni di dollari d’incasso), aggiudicandosi ben sette premi Oscar (tra cui miglior film, regia e sceneggiatura) e tre Golden Globe.
