Salvatore Quasimodo | Anno Domini MCMXLVII

Avete finito di battere i tamburi
a cadenza di morte su tutti gli orizzonti
dietro le bare strette alle bandiere,
di rendere piaghe e lacrime a pietà
nelle città distrutte, rovina su rovina.

Mikhail Y. Kugach / Михаил Юрьевич Кугач (Russian painter, 1939) | The Return

Titian | The Venus of Urbino, 1538 | Uffizi Gallery

Toward the beginning of his career Titian had brought to completion Giorgione's unfinished canvas of Venus asleep in a landscape; some twenty-five years later he adapted the central motif of the recumbent figure to a new setting and transformed its meaning by domesticating that pastoral deity. Giorgione's Venus - withdrawn in a private dream of love that we can share, to a degree, only by an effort of the imagination - has been brought indoors; fully awake now and aware of her audience, she displays her charms in a deliberately public proclamation of love.

Salvatore Quasimodo | Lament for the South / Lamento per il Sud

La luna rossa, il vento, il tuo colore
di donna del Nord, la distesa di neve...
Il mio cuore è ormai su queste praterie,
in queste acque annuvolate dalle nebbie.

Ho dimenticato il mare, la grave
conchiglia soffiata dai pastori siciliani,
le cantilene dei carri lungo le strade
dove il carrubo trema nel fumo delle stoppie,

Giuseppe Faraone, 1954 | Impressionist painter


Born in Picerno (Potenza), Giuseppe Faraone attended the Art School of Potenza, before moving to San Donato Milanese on the outskirts of Milan, where he still lives and works. Here he started his relentless pursuit of a variety of drawing techniques and the use of colors.
He understands the art of painting, having perfected his talent in Italy and abroad. Faraone fined tuned his skills in the Impressionist style by painting in the same places where French Impressionism was born.
The scenes depicted in his works of art are many, but in particular, he focuses on the stunning views of Milan. Unlike the French Impressionists, who represented a satisfied and happy society, in the paintings of Faraone we find the Milan that works, where everything is moving.

Addio a Luciano Ventrone!

The Italian painter Luciano Ventrone died during the night in his house in Collelongo - Aquila, Italia.

Luciano Ventrone was born in Rome in 1942, he attended Liceo Artistico in Rome. After graduation in 1946 he started studying Architecture. In 1968 he left the University and focused on painting.

Even though Luciano Ventrone is internationally recognized as one of the master realist painters of his generation, he believes that his works are really about optics:
"Painting is not about the mere representation of an object, but its color and light", he says.
"The subject cannot be seen as it is but as an abstract element".
