Pedro Salinas | No, non ti amano, no / No, no te quieren, no..

No, non ti amano, no.
Tu sì, tu ami davvero.

L’amore che hai in più
se lo spartiscono esseri
e cose che guardi,
che tu tocchi, che mai
hanno avuto amore prima.

Pedro Salinas / Chagall | "Per vivere non voglio isole, palazzi, torri.."

To live I don't want
islands, palaces, towers.

What steeper joy
Than living in pronouns!

Take off your clothing,
features, pictures;
I don't want you like that,
masked as another,
always a daughter of something.

Marc Chagall | Over the town / Sulla città, 1918

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.
