Wisława Szymborska | Possibilità / Possibilities

Preferisco il cinema.
Preferisco i gatti.
Preferisco le querce sul fiume Warta.

Preferisco Dickens a Dostoevskij.
Preferisco me che vuol bene alla gente, a me che ama l’umanità.

Jacobus Hendrik Pierneef | Landscape painter

Jacobus Hendrik (Henk) Pierneef (usually referred to as Pierneef) (Pretoria, 1886–1957), was a South African landscape artist (from Dutch parents), generally considered to be one of the best of the old South African masters.
His distinctive style is widely recognised and his work was greatly influenced by the South African landscape.
Most of his landscapes were of the South African highveld, which provided a lifelong source of inspiration for him. Pierneef's style was to reduce and simplify the landscape to geometric structures, using flat planes, lines and colour to present the harmony and order in nature.

Brucia all’inferno

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.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir | Bouquet of Roses, 1879 | The Clark Art Institute

Nell'estate del 1879, il banchiere e diplomatico Paul Berard invitò Renoir nella sua casa di campagna in Normandia.

Saitō Kazu / 斉藤 和, 1960

Born in Kyoto, Japan, Kazu Saitō graduated from Kyoto City Arts University in 1987. He explored Nihonga all the way.
In addition to retaining the fineness of texture, color, form and space in Japanese art, he transforms his aesthetic experiences and the feelings of all things in life into a poetic conception and charming aesthetics with his unique new contemporary image.

"I want to look deeply at the essence of impression, connect the moving tradition to the future, and convey the essence of that impression in a simple visual language".

Pablo Neruda | Se saprai.. / If you will know..

Se saprai starmi vicino,
e potremo essere diversi,
se il sole illuminerà entrambi
senza che le nostre ombre si sovrappongano,
se riusciremo ad essere "noi" in mezzo al mondo
e insieme al mondo, piangere, ridere, vivere.

Ken Moroney | Impressionist painter

Ken Moroney (1949-2018) was born in South London. Of Anglo Irish parentage, his father was typical of his generation and worried about Ken’s artistic temperament which he viewed as effeminate.
As a result Ken took up boxing and won a gold medal for South London in his teens.
His art continued to flourish with his trademark striking use of colour. His main medium is oils and he favours romantic subjects of Edwardian times.
Stylistically Moroney’s work surely emanates from the French Post-Impressionist tradition and his subject matter and bright palette can be compared to similar beach scenes created by the likes of Eugène Boudin.
