Salvador Dali | Drawing

Drawing is perhaps one of the most natural and rudimentary activities we undertake as humans. As soon as we get our hands on something that leaves a mark, we begin to draw.
In art, it is considered a fundamental skill to master. For Salvador Dalí drawing was both a means and an end.
Meaning, a lot of what we have that count as “drawings” from Salvador Dalí are studies for much larger works, they are representations of his thought process, his creativity shifting and growing, and an insight to his unique perspective of the world.

Federico García Lorca / Vanessa Lemen | Serenade / Serenata


Along the banks of the river
the night is bathing
and on the breasts of Lolita
die of love the branches.

Die of love branches.

Dino Buzzati / Alex Alemany | Lettera d'amore


Sono finalmente ritornato, tesoro, ed ora aspetto che tu mi raggiunga.
Nell’ultima tua lettera, che ho avuto un mese fa, dicevi appunto che non potevi più vivere senza di me. Ti credo, perché uguale è il sentimento mio. Non è come un’attrazione fatale, quasi un castigo?
Di solito, tra uomo e donna, soltanto uno dei due si innamora. L’altro, o l’altra, accetta, o subisce. Nel nostro caso, meravigliosamente, la passione è pari in entrambi. Pazzi tutti e due. Ciò è bellissimo ma fa anche paura. Siamo come due foglie furiosamente sospinte l’una verso l’altra da opposti venti.
Che cosa accadrà quando si incontreranno?
