Paul Éluard | Marina / Marine, 1951

Ti guardo e il sole si innalza
Presto ricoprirà la nostra giornata
Svegliati cuore e colori in mente
Per dissipare le pene della notte

Ti guardo tutto è spoglio
Fuori le barche hanno poca acqua
Bisogna dire tutto con poche parole
Il mare è freddo senza amore

Christophe Vacher, 1996 | The Long Sleep (detail)

Paul Laurenzi, 1964 | Pittore figurativo

Paul Laurenzi è un pittore figurativo Francese che ama creare opere d'arte figurative e di ritrattistica.
Fu dopo vari piccoli interventi nel mondo della pubblicità e dei libri per bambini che Paul Laurenzi, entrò a far parte di una associazione di pittura con sede nel sud della Francia.
Questo gli permette di partecipare a varie mostre locali e simpatizzare con il suo presidente, artista professionista. Quest'ultimo lo incoraggia a presentare le sue opere in una galleria di Marsiglia, che accetta così di esporre le sue opere d'arte.
La sua prima mostra "ufficiale", accanto alle opere di Bernard Buffet, avviene poi, nel 1987.

A Love Letter from Balzac to Countess Ewelina Hańska

My beloved angel,

"I am nearly mad about you, as much as one can be mad: I cannot bring together two ideas that you do not interpose yourself between them.
I can no longer think of nothing but you. In spite of myself, my imagination carries me to you. I grasp you, I kiss you, I caress you, a thousand of the most amorous caresses take possession of me. As for my heart, there you will always be - very much so. I have a delicious sense of you there.
But my God, what is to become of me, if you have deprived me of my reason?
This is a monomania which, this morning, terrifies me. I rise up every moment say to myself, ‘Come, I am going there!’ Then I sit down again, moved by the sense of my obligations.

Ferdinand Georg Waldmuller | Portrait of Madame Ewelina Hańska, 1835

Claude Monet | Frost, 1875

Standing side by side, Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir painted the same view of this garden in winter.
Both used finely nuanced shades of brown and blue, although Monet added an element of warmth to his view by means of yellowish light and a touch of red.
He executed the branches with strong brushstrokes, while Renoir’s depiction of the bushes is more filigree (Musée de l’Orangerie, Paris).
More than any other Impressionist, Claude Monet was fascinated by colored reflections on surfaces covered in snow, frost, ice, or hoarfrost.

Franz Liszt's Love Letter to Marie d'Agoult

"My heart overflows with emotion and joy!
I do not know what heavenly languor, what infinite pleasure permeates it and burns me up.
It is as if I had never loved!
Tell me whence these uncanny disturbances spring, these inexpressible foretastes of delight, these divine, tremors of love.
Oh! all this can only spring from you, sister, angel, woman, Marie!"

Henri Lehmann | Marie d'Agoult, 1843 | Petit Palais, Paris

Bonaparte's Love Letter to Joséphine de Beauharnais, 1796

"I am going to bed with my heart full of your adorable image… I cannot wait to give you proofs of my ardent love… How happy I would be if I could assist you at your undressing, the little firm white breast, the adorable face, the hair tied up in a scarf a la creole. You know that I will never forget the little visits, you know, the little black forest…
I kiss it a thousand times and wait impatiently for the moment I will be in it. To live within Josephine is to live in the Elysian fields.
Kisses on your mouth, your eyes, your breast, everywhere, everywhere".

Andrea Appiani (1754-1817) Joséphine de Beauharnais (The Empress of the French as the first wife of Emperor Napoleon I, 1763–1814)

A Love Letter of Jean-Paul Sartre to Simone de Beauvoir, 1939

My dear little girl

For a long time I’ve been wanting to write to you in the evening after one of those outings with friends that I will soon be describing in “A Defeat,” the kind when the world is ours. I wanted to bring you my conqueror’s joy and lay it at your feet, as they did in the Age of the Sun King. And then, tired out by all the shouting, I always simply went to bed.
Today I’m doing it to feel the pleasure you don’t yet know, of turning abruptly from friendship to love, from strength to tenderness. Tonight I love you in a way that you have not known in me: I am neither worn down by travels nor wrapped up in the desire for your presence. I am mastering my love for you and turning it inwards as a constituent element of myself. This happens much more often than I admit to you, but seldom when I’m writing to you.

Alexander Sigov, 1955

Nato a San Pietroburgo, Alexander Sigov è un talentuoso pittore e grafico Russo.
Sigov si è laureato all'Art College ed è membro dell'Unione degli artisti della Russia dal 1994. Partecipante a più di 150 mostre, le sue opere sono in numerose collezioni private in Russia ed in altri paesi.
Salvador Dalì in uno dei suoi Dieci Comandamenti dice: "Non temere la perfezione, non puoi raggiungerla".
Secondo l'artista, la pittura lo aiuta ad avvicinarsi a questo segreto, mistero. Se nella vita, per raggiungere un certo obiettivo, comprendere il mistero della verità, non di rado arriva la delusione, allora c'è speranza nell'arte di mantenere questo segreto, imparandolo ogni giorno.
