mereasy_art. #BornToday

Gen Paul (July 2, 1895) was a French painter and engraver.

#BornToday Gen Paul (July 2, 1895) was a French painter and engraver. He was born in a house in Montmartre on Rue Lepic, which was painted by Van Gogh, and started painting as a child. In the late 20s, he produced many of his best works and developed a dynamic form of expressionism influenced by Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh, Cézanne, Goya and El Greco. During this phase, his painting was characterised by motion created by daring compositions, forced perspectives, realism and flat areas of colour, which is why some regard him as a precursor of Abstract Expressionism. Furthermore, unlike other Expressionists from the time, his works are full of optimism and fuelled by his passion for life. #art #paintings #masterpiece #beauty #travel #tourist #arte #dipinti #viaggi #artwork #oilpainting #contemporaryart #artecontemporanea #funny #funnyart #artlovers #sculptures #iOS #innovation #app #Android #sculptures #museum #mostre #exhibitions #dipinti #vacanze #musei #mereasy #espressionismo

French fashion designer Christian Dior was the first art dealer to display Salvador Dalí’s “Melting Clocks”. Before finding his true calling, Dior and his friends Jacques Bonjean and Pierre Colle opened an art gallery in Paris in 1928 and developed a roster of high-profile artists. Indeed, they hosted a series of exhibitions featuring artists belonging to the new avant-garde European art, such as Raoul Dufy, Giorgio de Chirico and Leonor Fini. When Bonjean left, Dior partnered with Colle and together they debuted Dalí’s masterpiece “The Persistence of Memory” (1931), which was then bought by Julian Levy and brought to New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Later on, they organised many solo exhibitions for him, and when Dior quit his career as a gallerist, he still remained friend with the artist. #art #paintings #masterpiece #dali #beauty #travel #culture #arte #dipinti #viaggi #artwork #turismo #artlover #mereasy #iOS #innovation #app #Android #sculptures #museum #mostre #exhibitions #arte #dipinti #viaggi #artwork #turismo #vacanze #funnyart #artlovers

Paul Klee’s Magic Garden Setting aside rationality, we are not looking for the verisimilitude of forms. Instead, we let ourselves be swept away by the wonder of the enchanted world that the Swiss painter successfully recreated in one of his best works. Today let's get carried away by the magic of a garden. Here, we are looking at “Magic Garden” painted by Klee in 1926. Follow the link in bio to read the article.

Jan van Eyck The Arnolfini Portrait 1434 Pt2 The gesture of the hands, the pose and the role of the woman The faces are as expressionless, as always in Nordic painting – the psychological depth of Italian artists clearly lacks. In comparison, the dog is more expressive. The man has an upright head and raises his right hand with an authoritative gesture. Perhaps this is a greeting to those who are entering, as the mirror reveals, or it could also be a solemn oath.

mereasy_art. Jan van Eyck The Arnolfini Portrait 1434
European artistic context at

Jan van Eyck The Arnolfini Portrait 1434 European artistic context at the turn of the 15th century Renaissance painting originates from the rise of a new social class, the bourgeoisie that lives thanks to their work and is used to dealing with reality. This class would become the primary client of artists, pushing the development of a new style that looks at reality in a pragmatic way outside the refined yet abstract elegance of the Gothic style. There are two artistic centres: Italy and Flanders, the latter a region of the prosperous Duchy of Burgundy, a fundamental hub of commerce through which a vast amount of goods and money pass. In this region, around 1420, a painting was born that is the expression of a mercantile class that also seeks through art, confirmation of its social status.

Moroni: The Riches of Renais

Art Exhibitions around the World 😃 📷 🏛 Moroni: The Riches of Renaissance Portraiture – New York From 21 February to 2 June, 2019, the Frick Collection in New York will hold an exhibition dedicated to Giovan Battista Moroni, a 16th-century Italian painter regarded as one of the best portraitists of his time as well as a representative of a true naturalism. Long underrated, Moroni was very much appreciated by Titian and Marco Boschini, who celebrated the natural art of his works by highlighting their “documentary” and realist value. This is why the exhibition also focuses on the Renaissance objects that were represented in his works in order to better understand the society of the 16th century. The exhibition is curated by Aimee Ng of The Frick Collection, Simone Facchinetti – curator of Adriano Barbareggi Museum in Bergamo – and Arturo Galansino – director of Palazzo Strozzi in Florence – and is the second largest exhibition on the artist in the world after the one held in London in 2014. ➡ Explore the details of the exhibition with Mereasy!

mereasy_art. Boy Bitten by a Lizard by Caravaggio 1595- 1596
A photograph capturing

Boy Bitten by a Lizard by Caravaggio 1595- 1596 A photograph capturing that moment when everything can change suddenly While “Boy Bitten by a Lizard” is not one of Caravaggio's most famous works, it is certainly one of the most interesting. For the first time, a fleeting emotion of the moment is represented, much like a photograph taken suddenly, capturing that unrepeatable instant between surprise and pain. There are two versions of the work, one from the V. Korda Collection, held at the National Gallery in London and the other in Florence, at the Longhi Foundation. It was the art critic Roberto Longhi, in the 1940s, who raised Caravaggio from the oblivion in which he had already fallen in the 1600s. Analysis of the work Giovanni Baglione – a contemporary of Caravaggio and a rather mediocre painter who had written the biographies of Roman artists of that last century – discussed this work. Baglione certainly was not on good terms with Caravaggio. He criticized his style, even if he had at times imitated him and had even sued him for certain vulgar verses that had offended him and which he believed had come from Caravaggio. However, implicitly recognizing the value of the painting he had written "... he seemed to actually shake his head". The theme itself could be considered trivial. A boy is bitten by a lizard, but the way in which the theme is represented is extraordinary. The reptile that triggers the action by sinking the teeth in the young man's finger is immediately noticed – it is in the shadows, a darker part of the work. What is striking, however, is the boy's reaction. As in a still image, the young man is caught in the exact instant in which the body jumps back from sudden pain and leans forward towards the observer. The right hand suddenly retracts and pulls the whole arm with it, bringing the shoulder close to the body, in a sudden flicker that makes the shoulder position unnatural.

Next weekend we'll fly to Copenhagen, Denmark
Copenhagen

MereasyPlaces Next weekend we'll fly to Copenhagen, Denmark Copenhagen is the capital and most populous city of Denmark. Originally a Viking fishing village established in the 10th century in the vicinity of what is now Gammel Strand, Copenhagen became the capital of Denmark in the early 15th century. Beginning in the 17th century it consolidated its position as a regional centre of power with its institutions, defences and armed forces. After suffering from the effects of plague and fire in the 18th century, the city underwent a period of redevelopment. This included construction of the prestigious district of Frederiksstaden and founding of such cultural institutions as the Royal Theatre and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. After further disasters in the early 19th century when Horatio Nelson attacked the Dano-Norwegian fleet and bombarded the city, rebuilding during the Danish Golden Age brought a Neoclassical look to Copenhagen's architecture. Later, following the Second World War, the Finger Plan fostered the development of housing and businesses along the five urban railway routes stretching out from the city centre. The city is the cultural, economic and governmental centre of Denmark; with a number of bridges connecting the various districts, the cityscape is characterised by parks, promenades and waterfronts. Copenhagen's landmarks such as Tivoli Gardens, The Little Mermaid statue, the Amalienborg and Christiansborg palaces, Rosenborg Castle Gardens, Frederik's Church, and many museums, restaurants and nightclubs are significant tourist attractions. The largest lake of Denmark, Arresø, lies around 27 miles (43 kilometers) northwest of the City Hall Square. (Wiki).

mereasy_art. As part of the current events promoted in Matera, the European Capital

As part of the current events promoted in Matera, the European Capital of Culture in 2019, there are a series of initiatives dedicated to the master of surrealism, Salvador Dalí. Three enormous works by the Catalan master are placed around the city’s historical centre and the “Sassi” rock-dwelling district. and an exhibition, Salvador Dalí, “The Persistence of Opposites”, has been prepared in the rock complex of the Madonna delle Virtù church and San Nicola dei Greci, inside the city of “Sassi” [the Rocks], a Unesco Heritage Site. There are about 200 sculptures, illustrations, furniture, books, glass works and “multimedia exhibits” on display, making the visit a much more in-depth multisensory experience than a traditional exhibition. The event sees the contribution of the Dalí Universe, a private foundation that is home to one of the world’s leading Dalí collections. The curators have highlighted the dualism present in the works of the artist, who was one of the most interesting exponents of Surrealism, the last of the avant-garde art, born in 1924 when Breton published his Manifesto. The movement was based on Freud’s theories that had revealed how man was much more complex than what appeared, and that the truth of being was based within the depths of the psyche.The surrealists, when referring to these theories, believed precisely that art should bring this profound reality to the surface. Therefore, it was necessary to silence reason, free oneself from external appearance and make the unconscious clearly manifest, by representing it visually. In order to effectively illustrate the complexity of Dalí’s art, the event was organized around four themes: Time, Casings (shells), Religion and Metamorphosis.

mereasy_art. Performance art is a unique form of art in which the body is the only

Performance art is a unique form of art in which the body is the only expressive tool. Performance art began to take shape in the 1960s, however in the 1970s, on the wave of youth movements of ’68, it would finally acquire artistic status by redefining the role of the artist in modern society. This new form of artistic expression explored new languages of communication. Moreover, it has no codified rules – it can be spontaneous or follow a script, performed by an individual or in a group, and also varies in duration. Often the observer-visitor is invited to interact, overturning the traditional passive experience of art. While a traditional work of art is “material” and remains unchanged over time, performance art comes to life in the instant and does not produce “material” realities. This form of art leaves the memory of an emotional and aesthetic experience, generated when the performance takes place. It is the triumph of the ephemeral, a perfect mirror of a modernity that lacks any fixed points of reference. However, the performance does not exist only in the memory of those who are attending or experience the story in photographs or videos. Over the years, it has assumed the characteristics of reproducibility even by people other than the performer who conceived it. These are reinterpretations, not copies, because by changing the frame, the audience and often the performers, the event takes shape as something new, a creative regeneration...

mereasy_art. The representation of Jews in the Middle Ages
Reading time 4 minutes
E

The representation of Jews in the Middle Ages Reading time 4 minutes European culture has at times shown forms of intolerance towards Jews. However, this has not always been the case. Initially, the relationship between Christians and Jews was positive. A 5th-century mosaic in the church of Santa Pudenziana in Rome shows disciples gathered around Christ. Among them, on the opposite sides, St. Peter and St. Paul are crowned by two female figures, respectively the personifications of the Hebrew Church and the Church of the Gentiles (as non-Jews were called by those following Judaism). Both have the same visual space and dignity, a sort of recognition of their common roots. Until the year turn of the 11th century, the relationship with Jews was that of mutual respect and there is no differentiation in their representation. The situation changed in 1096, when the First Crusade was proclaimed by Urban II. A group led by Peter the Hermit carried out violent acts on Jews, accused of killing Christ. Art also recorded this change and for the first time Jews were portrayed in a different way, not yet through physical features, but in their clothing. Among the first images that document this change in feeling, there are the miniatures of the Lobbes Bible, a manuscript of 1084 where the prophets are depicted, as Jews, with pointed hats. We will find the same headgear in many other images. An example, the Andata al Calvario [Crucifixion] in the door of the Church of San Zeno in Verona (1138), a bronze tile where men with pointed hats push Christ towards the cross. In 1178 in Parma, the bas-relief with the Deposition of Christ by Antelami shows how far we have come from the mosaics of Santa Pudenziana. Here, among the characters appear two symbolic figures on either side of the cross, the “triumphant Church” holding the crusader banner in one hand and the chalice with the blood of Christ in the other...

Next weekend we'll fly to Venice, Italy
Part of the myst

MereasyPlaces Next weekend we'll fly to Venice, Italy Part of the mystery and allure of Venice is that this Italian lagoon sanctuary has remained remarkably intact and unchanged for many centuries. With its magical alleyways, romantic bridges, and golden domes, Venice seems to literally rise from the waters. This fairytale city is best known for its lagoon thoroughfare, the Grand Canal, flanked on both sides by stunning examples of Venetian architecture. Both the Basilica di San Marco and Palazzo Ducale stand in all their glory at the end of the canal. The best way to see the canal and the tiny waterways that break off from it, is through the primary form of transportation in Venice since the 12th century - the gondola, preferably steered by a gondolier in traditional garb. Venice, however, is not all about water. Hiding behind the glorious palazzos that line the banks of the canal are charming backstreets, where each building seems to be a work of art unto itself. Intimate churches hug stone homes along cobbled walkways. In the heart of Venice, you will find one of the city’s six sestieri (boroughs), San Marco, home to some of the city’s famous sites, such as St Mark’s Square and Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and many famous churches. There is no hastening a visit to Venice. Tourists rush around trying to fit in just some of the many spectacular places to see, but the true magic of this lies in the true magic of Venetian moments – strong coffee in a sunny square, dramatic sunsets from the roof of an ancient church, lunch with good friends in a crowded bar or listening to the slap-slap of the gondolier’s oars on the water.

mereasy_art. Pasquino and the talking statues of Rome The “Congrega degli arguti”
R

Pasquino and the talking statues of Rome The “Congrega degli arguti” Reading time 4 minutes Rome is one-of-a-kind in the panorama of European cities. The statue of "Pasquino" is a torso with no limbs, a copy of an original from the Hellenistic period found in 1501 and located in the small square in front of Palazzo Orsini. Now called Palazzo Braschi, it was owned by Cardinal Carafa who was renovating it. These were prestigious works and the famous architect Bramante was the architect of the Popes. Moreover, the cardinal was not a young man, he had led the crusade called by Sixtus IV in 1472 from which he returned triumphant. When the statue was found, it appears that the cardinal himself placed it in the square, affixing his family stem. The origin of the name is rather obscure. According to Folengo, Pasquino was the name of the owner of a tavern in the area, while for others he was a blacksmith or a barber, perhaps a shoemaker. Rendina, author of "Unusual History of Rome", reports he was a mediocre school teacher named Pasquino, mocked by the students of the prestigious Archiginnasio della Sapienza, located nearby. Moreover, Rendina states that there was even the Feast of Pasquino, April 25th. During this celebration, students and professors wrote their "pasquili", witty compositions that were devoid of political purposes. The pope himself appointed a cardinal as a supervisor and a secretary who was in charge of examining and judging the compositions that were then posted. However, parallel to this state-run "pasquilism", a production of irreverent texts and ferocious social criticism began to sprout up – so-called "pasquinate" - which were posted all year round and at night, in order to avoid the guards. These were not always spontaneous expressions of the people, rather they were sometimes commissioned by powerful characters of the curia belonging to factions who were against to the ruling class. Soon the phenomenon became rampant and entirely out of control. #mereasy #rome #italy #arte #trip #artwork #art #beautiful #masterpiece #tourist #holiday #statue #motion #movement #shapes #universe #wire #suspension #harmony #beauty #history #collection #artcollector
