Un Picasso...retrouvé ...



Étreinte

Incroyable. Une gouache de Picasso réalisée alors que l’artiste avait à peine 20 ans a été retrouvée dans la chambre à coucher d’une résidence du sud-ouest de l’Angleterre, a indiqué lundi la maison d’enchères Duke’s qui la mettra en vente la semaine prochaine. «Etreinte» représente Picasso nu enlacé avec son amie Louise Lenoir, connue sous le nom d’Odette. L’oeuvre aurait été réalisée en 1901 ou 1902, alors que le peintre espagnol avait à peine 20 ans. La gouache avait été authentifiée par Picasso en 1969. L’oeuvre a été retrouvée adossée avec deux autres toiles contre le mur d’une chambre à coucher d’une maison située dans le sud-ouest de l’Angleterre. Selon la presse, la résidence appartient à un membre d’une «famille royale internationale». Guy Schwinge, de la maison Duke’s à qualifié la découverte d’«incroyable», la peinture sera mise en vente le 10 avril. Elle est estimée à au moins 100.000 livres (126.000 euros), selon Duke’s.

Le Corbusier (1887-1965): Villa Savoye


Le Corbusier (1887-1965)

Le Corbusier (1887-1965):

Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris, who chose to be known as Le Corbusier (October 6, 1887 – August 27, 1965), was a Swiss-born architect, designer, urbanist, writer and also painter, who is famous for his contributions to what now is called Modern Architecture.

In his 30s he became a French citizen.
He was a pioneer in theoretical studies of modern design and was dedicated to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities.

His career spanned five decades, with his iconic buildings constructed throughout central Europe, India, Russia, and one structure each in North and South America. He was also an urban planner, painter, sculptor, writer, and modern furniture designer.

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)



One of the greatest painter of the twentieth-century.

Picasso was born in 1881 in Malaga, Spain. Pablo adopted his maternal name Picasso, instead of Ruiz (father’s name). Picasso’s father was a professor of art and had the earliest influence on his son.

Picasso made three trips to Paris: 1900, 1901, and 1902, returning each time to his family in Spain because of a lack of money. He was finally able to settle in Paris in 1903. For the rest of his life Picasso was considered a French painter. His Spanish friends in Paris said he always had a little French in him, but Picasso said the French made him feel more Spanish.

Picasso’s blue period started in Paris in 1901, but it didn’t begin to flourish until he returned to Barcelona that same year. Majority of the blue works are women. Transition between the blue and rose period began in 1904. The rose paintings are filled with harlequins and acrobats.
The rose period started to end with The Portrait of Gertrude Stein in 1906.

At this time he started to move towards sculpture and printmaking. This started his fascination of simplifying of objects into geometric forms. His paintings became more linear and sharp. Picasso’s influences from Cezanne developed into Cubism. In 1907, his Les Demoiselles d’ Avignon established his avant-garde status.

The beginning of World War I put an end to Cubism in Picasso’s work. His Post-war paintings began to become Surrealist, as in The Dance (1925).

Claude Monet (1840-1926)


Claude Monet was a founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air landscape painting.













On the Bank of the Seine, Bennecourt, 1868. An early example of plein-air impressionism, in which a gestural and suggestive use of oil paint was presented as a finished work of art.

Impressionism


Impressionism was a 19th-century art movement that began in Paris. The name of the movement is derived from the title of a Claude Monet work, Impression, Sunrise (Impression, soleil levant), which provoked the critic Louis Leroy to coin the term in a satiric review published in Le Charivari.

Characteristics of Impressionist painting include visible brushstrokes, open composition, emphasis on light in its changing qualities (often accentuating the effects of the passage of time), ordinary subject matter, the inclusion of movement as a crucial element of human perception and experience, and unusual visual angles.

The emergence of Impressionism in the visual arts was soon followed by analogous movements in other media which became known as Impressionist music and Impressionist literature.

Impressionism also describes art created in this style, but outside of the late 19th century time period.

Hymne à la beauté du monde...
Paroles: Luc Plamondon
Musique: Christian St Toch
Chanteuse: Isabelle Boulay

in french
Ne tuons pas la beauté du monde.
Chaque fleur, chaque arbre que l’on tue,Reviendront nous tuer à son tour.
Ne tuons pas la beauté du monde,Ne tuons pas le chant des oiseaux,
Ne tuons pas le bleu du jour.Ne tuons pas la beauté du monde.
La dernière chance de la Terre,c’est maintenant qu’elle se joue.
Ne tuons pas la beauté du monde,faisons de la Terre un grand jardinpour ceux
qui viendront après nous!...après nous!

in greek
Μη σκοτώνουμε την ομορφιά του κόσμου.
Κάθε λουλούδι, κάθε δένδρο που σκοτώνουμε, έρχεται & μας σκοτώνει με τη
σειρά του.Μη σκοτώνουμε το κελάδημα των πουλιών…
Μη σκοτώνουμε το γαλανό της μέρας.Η τελευταία ευκαιρία της Γης τώρα
διαδραματίζεται.
Aς κάνουμε τη Γη ενα τεράστιο κήπο……για όλους αυτούς που θα έλθουν μετά
απo μας!... μετά από μας!

in english
Let’s not kill the natural beauty of the world.
Each and every flower and tree that we killwill eventually kill us in its turn.
Let’s not shoot at the birdsong…Let’s not kill the blue colours of the day.
This is the moment that the destiny of the Earthis being decided.
Let’s turn the Earth into an enormous garden……for the sake of all those
generationswho are going to follow!… after us!

in romanian
Să nu ucidem frumuseţea lumii
Fiecare floare, fiecare arbore pe care le ucidem ne vor omorî la rândul lor cândva
Să nu ucidem frumuseţea lumiiSă nu ucidem cântecul păsărilor
Să nu ucidem albastrul zileiSă nu ucidem frumuseţea lumiiSoarta Pământuluise
decide în acest moment
Să nu ucidem frumuseţea lumiiSă facem din Pământ o mare grădinăpentru cei
care vin după noi!...după noi!

in catalan

in spanish
No acabemos con la belleza natural del mundoCada flor o árbol que matemos
