Ingrid Tusell, 1978 | Pittrice surrealista

Ingrid Tusell è un'artista nata a Barcellona ed ora vive in un vecchio mulino restaurato nel terreno montuoso di Teruel, in Spagna.
Ingrid dipinge donne che ricordano le forti guerriere indigene.
Il loro sguardo congelato e intenso permea un senso di conoscenza "ultraterrena" e di energia universale femminile.
Spesso crivellati di vita animale e vegetale, i soggetti femminili di Ingrid si fondono all'interno dei loro ambienti consentendo loro di avere una connessione simbiotica con la natura.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir | Champ de bananiers, 1881

Starting in 1881 the art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel regularly bought paintings from Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
The painter then undertook all the trips he had previously been unable to afford and which would complete his artistic training.
His first trip took him to Algeria, in the footsteps of Delacroix whom he admired. Renoir's visual experience there was as intense as it had been for the older artist.
Seduced by the colours and the "incredible wealth" of nature here, he produced several pure landscapes, quite rare in his oeuvre. This field of banana trees is in the Essai garden in Hamma, created in 1832 in Algiers.

Thomas Dewing | Lady in Yellow, 1888

Thomas Wilmer Dewing (1851-1938) created a striking contrast between the precisely modeled face and arms, and the very free, feathery brushstrokes of the dress.

The painting was exhibited in 1888 at the Boston Art Club, where it was purchased by Isabella Stewart Gardner with the help of Dennis Miller Bunker.
The painting was then exhibited to considerable acclaim at the National Academy of Design and at the Paris Universal Exposition of 1889.
Stanford White designed the frame, which is original to the painting. Mrs. Gardner hung the painting in the Yellow Room, a setting perfectly attuned to the hue of the woman’s dress. | Source: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum
