Childe Hassam | Geraniums, 1888-1889

From: Christie's
Following a successful career in Boston, in 1886 the celebrated American Impressionist Childe Hassam (1859-1935) journeyed to Paris with his wife Maud where he would remain until 1889.
During this time in the summer months, the Hassams visited the country home of German businessman Ernest Blumenthal and his wife, who was friends with Mrs. Hassam, in Villiers-Le-Bel, a small town ten miles northeast of Paris in the Val d’Oise.

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

Fredric Michael Wood, 1944 | Pittore impressionista

Fredric Michael Wood: "Art first came to my attention in a serious way as a boy fortunate to spend many of my formative years in Europe while we were stationed there as a military family.
I was hooked when I discovered an old impressionist oil painting, in a storeroom in our house overseas, of the French countryside, and I stared at it for a long long time trying to imagine how one could paint such a scene! I resolved to get beyond my little drawings and watercolors, and learn to paint like that!
Thanks to childhood, naiveté, I didn't know then how difficult that would be, when, later, much later, I would discover great artists of the past such as John S. Sargent, Joaquin Sorolla, Anders Zorn, and Frank Tenney Johnson, along with illustrators like Howard Pyle and others from the Golden Age of Illustration", as well as contemporary artists, Andrew Wyeth, and John Asarro, and so many others of my contemporaries, whose work would compel, but challenge me so"!

Lucia Heffernan, 1966

Da sempre amante degli animali, Lucia Heffernan - originaria di Taiwan -dipinge ritratti stravaganti di animali in scenari fin troppo umani.
L'artista ha ricevuto un BFA dalla Binghamton University nel 1989 ed i suoi dipinti ad olio dettagliati hanno attirato un seguito per il loro umorismo delicatamente satirico.
Le figure travestite ed antropomorfe di Heffernan provenienti da tutto il regno animale si dedicano spesso ad attività ricreative: nel punny Roller Chick (2020), un soffice uccello sfoggia pattini a rotelle in stile anni '80 e uno stereo.
Il lavoro di Heffernan strizza l'occhio anche ai giganti della storia dell'arte.
Wall Street Gothic (2020) raffigura un orso sorridente e un toro, i simboli dei cicli di boom e bust del mercato azionario, nello stile dell'iconico American Gothic di Grant Wood (1930).
Heffernan ha esposto in gallerie e fiere negli Stati Uniti ed a Hong Kong.

Emily Dickinson | Fammi un ritratto del sole!

Fammi un ritratto del sole
così che io possa appenderlo in camera mia
e possa fingere di scaldarmi
mentre gli altri lo chiamano "Giorno"!

Disegnami un pettirosso su un ramo
così che io possa ascoltarlo e sognare

Charles Bukowski: " Sai cosa succederà a noi due?"

Sai cosa succederà a noi due?
Ci cercheremo,
ancora.

Ci cercheremo nelle canzoni,
nelle citazioni,
nei libri.
