LUIGI PERICLE’S WORKS OF ART: A REDISCOVERY

At last Luigi Pericle’s works have definitely found the right place in history of art.
After a long period of time in which no one has heard of Luigi Pericle, now his work has been rediscovered, and events follow one upon the other, so you can admire his works, understand the greatness of his message and draw inspiration from his life.

I visited the London exhibition dedicated to Luigi Pericle and, once again, I was left speechless by the works of this artist who always amazes.

MAGRITTE’S LOVERS MEANING AND DESCRIPTION

Magritte’s kisses and lovers are frequent themes in the surrealist artist’s paintings.
There is one work, however, that still fascinates today as the two lovers depicted have their faces covered by a white cloth and one cannot help but wonder why and what the meaning of the painting is

ART, FASHION AND PHOTOGRAPHY. LIFE AND PHOTOGRAPHS OF LEE MILLER

Model, photographer, muse, war reporter and 20th century icon.
Lee Miller was all this and much more!

Her life is inextricably linked to Man Ray, who was first a teacher, then a love and finally a friend. Lee Miller’s photographs recount this bond and also her life dedicated to art and photography.
Lee Miller was a pioneer of surrealism in photography, putting her on an equal footing with Man Ray, whose personality she always overshadowed both during her life and in the years to come.

Life of Escher, the artist of impossible universes

Escher | Giorno e notte

Maurits Cornelis Escher, Giorno e notte, 1938. Xilografia, 39,1×67,7 cm. 7 Collezione Maurits, Bolzano. All M.C. Escher works © 2022 The M.C. Escher. Company. All rights reserved

LIFE OF ESCHER, ARTIST OF IMPOSSIBLE UNIVERSES

Escher’s life has been as fascinating as his visionary works.
His impossible universes, made of optical illusions and real but seemingly virtual landscapes, have influenced the modern imagination and are still a source of inspiration for contemporary creatives.

Escher was born and died in Holland but for many years he lived in Rome and there are many exhibitions dedicated to his work (the last one in Florence).
Curious about everything, a brilliant experimenter and a unique artist in the artistic panorama of the 20th century, Escher is the creator of impossible and fantastic worlds that have anticipated the cinematic tales of our times.

Experimentation and colour in the works of Raoul Dufy

Raoul Dufy (1877-1953). “30 ans ou la vie en rose”. Huile sur toile, 1931. Paris, musée d’Art moderne.

EXPERIMENTATION AND COLOUR IN THE WORKS OF RAOUL DUFY

Raoul Dufy was born into a humble family of modest economic circumstances.
His father was an organist and passed on his passion for music to his son Raoul, which the artist cultivated for the rest of his life and transferred into his works.

In Raoul Dufy’s works there is experimentation and colour, a constant desire to communicate through light and through what life had in store for the man who was one of the greatest interpreters of art history, straddling Impressionism and Fauvism.
