Pierre-Auguste Renoir at the Clark Art Institute

Pierre-Auguste Renoir | Bouquet of Roses, 1879

In the summer of 1879, the banker and diplomat Paul Berard invited Pierre-Auguste Renoir to his country house in Normandy.
During his visit, the artist painted portraits of Berard’s children and made several panel decorations, this one for a door in the library.

Mario Sironi | Scritti e pensieri

"Ciò che diciamo attualità, modernità non è spesso che la sola realtà dell'esistenza - il resto è morte eco sotto volte lontane e paurose, o silenzio e buio impenetrabile".
"Gli uomini debbono essere governati. Lasciarli liberi di fare quello che vogliono significa incrementare la bestialità e il disordine".
"L'uomo disprezza, aggredisce, tortura gli animali - maledetto lui che fa il deserto intorno a sé sulla polvere".

Gustave Van de Woestyne | Expressionist painter

From: Sotheby's
In 1900, after art studies in his native city of Ghent, Gustave Van de Woestyne (1881-1947) settled in Sint-Martens-Latem, on the banks of the Leie river, where an artistic colony of poets, painters and sculptors had formed in search of an innovative and meaningful artistic expression.
His admiration for the technique and spirituality of the Flemish old masters led him to develop an art of mystic-religious symbolism and allegory.
He also drew inspiration from the Italian Primitives, Maurice Denis and fresco painting and became one of the figures of the "First School of Larthem".

Emily Dickinson | The Skies can't keep their secret! / I Cieli non sanno serbare il loro segreto!

The Skies cant keep their secret!
They tell it to the Hills -
The Hills just tell the Orchards -
And they - the Daffodils!

A Bird - by chance - that goes that way -
Soft overhears the whole -
If I should bribe the little Bird -
Who knows but she would tell?

René Magritte | Le Baiser, 1957

Emily Dickinson | Vi dirò come sorse il sole / I’ll tell you how the sun rose

Vi dirò come sorse il sole -
un nastro dopo l’altro -
i campanili nuotavano nell’ametista -
la notizia, come scoiattoli, corse -
le colline di slegarono i cappucci -
