Malcolm Liepke, 1953

Malcolm T. Liepke, American painter, was born and raised in Minneapolis. As a student he hungered for 'classical' training rather than the 'conceptual' ideas being taught. In a bold move, he left the Art Center College in Los Angeles and went to New York. That Malcolm Liepke’s paintings are arrestingly beautiful is evident, but they are much more. Through pattern, colour and bravura brushwork, Liepke delves deeply into profound areas of human nature. He has exhibited extensively internationally enjoying phenomenal success with a string of sell out exhibitions.

La Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, Roma 1651

Realizzata al centro di Piazza Navona di Roma da Gian Lorenzo Bernini, nel 1651, la fontana dei Quattro Fiumi realizza lo straordinario supporto alla copia romana di un obelisco egizio, proveniente dal Circo di Massenzio. Opera di architettura, oltre che di scultura, la Fontana mette in mostra un vero e proprio artificio barocco, nell'appoggio dell'obelisco sul vuoto. La fontana, coronata dalla colomba dello Spirito Santo - emblema del Papa Innocenzo X, committente dell'opera - fu anche interpretata come simbolo del trionfo della Chiesa sulle quattro parti del mondo. La fontana fu scoperta al pubblico il 12 giugno 1661.

Ballet Dancers in art


  • I più grandi ballerini non sono grandi per il loro livello tecnico, sono grandi per la loro passione.
    Martha Graham
  • La danza è poesia perché il suo fine ultimo è esprimere sentimenti, anche se attraverso una rigida tecnica. Il nostro compito è quello di far passare la parola attraverso il gesto.
    Carla Fracci

Paris in art

Baciami ~ Jacques Prévert
In un quartier della ville Lumiere
Dove fa sempre buio e manca l'aria
E d'inverno come d'estate è sempre inverno
Lei era sulle scale
Lui accanto a lei e lei accanto a lui
Faceva notte
C'era un odore di zolfo
Perché nel pomeriggio avevano ucciso le cimici
E lei gli diceva
È buio qui
Manca l'aria..
