Milan Kundera / René Magritte | Quotes / Aforismi

Rene Magritte (Belgian Surrealist painter, 1898-1967) | Les Amants / The Lovers
  • "..No one can do a thing about feelings, they exist and there's no way to censor them. We can reproach ourselves for some action, for a remark, but not for a feeling, quite simply because we have no control at all over it".
  • "Contro i sentimenti siamo disarmati, poiché esistono e basta - e sfuggono a qualunque censura. Possiamo rimproverarci un gesto, una frase, ma non un sentimento: su di esso non abbiamo alcun potere".

Max Svabinsky (1873-1962)

Max Švabinský (1873-1963) was a Czech painter🎨, draughtsman, graphic artist, and professor in Academy of Graphic Arts in Prague.
Švabinský is considered one of the more notable artists in the history of Czech painting and produced significant work during the first half of the 20th century.
He was relatively unusual among modernist artists in that his work was accepted by the communist regime; this was due at least in part to his having formed his artistic personality prior to 1900, prior to the advent of cubism. | © Wikipedia

Antonietta Brandeis | The Ponte Vecchio, Florence

Antonietta Brandeis was born in Miskowitz, Austria in 1849. She studied under Karel Javurek in Prague before moving to Venice to become a pupil at the Academy.
The development of international tourism in the nineteenth century meant that many more people were travelling to the beauty spots of Europe.
Venice was a very popular destination for these travellers and the demand for paintings of Venice grew. This demand resulted in an influx of artists to Venice who all produced topographical views of the city and its environs.
The presence of painters from Austria, such as Eugene de Blaas and F. R. Unterberger is not surprising in view of the fact that Venice was under Austrian rule for part of the century. Brandeis was another such artist.
