Alfred Sisley at the Museum Barberini

Located in Potsdam’s historic center (Germany), the Museum Barberini is an art museum that was initiated by Hasso Plattner, the founder of the German software company SAP and a patron of the arts.
Since its opening in 2017, the Barberini has established itself as one of the most popular museums in Germany with international exhibitions and an extraordinary collection of Impressionist paintings.
From Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt van Rijn, and Gerhard Richter to ancient sculpture, French Impressionism and Baroque painting, the Museum Barberini embraces all styles and eras, and aims to continually offer new perspectives on art.

Alfred Sisley | Near Moret-sur-Loing, 1881 | Museum Barberini

In 1882 Alfred Sisley moved to Moret-sur-Loing, a town to the south of Paris, where he explored the landscape that was crisscrossed by rivers and canals.
The wooden construction in the foreground likely belongs to one of the boatyards that dotted the Loing Canal, which was used for industrial purposes.
The detail of this construction adds a modern element to the timeless scenery.

Emilie Preyer | Still life painter

Emilie Preyer (1849-1930) was a German painter, known for her still life paintings.
Emilie Preyer was born in 1849 to an established and respected art family in Düsseldorf, Germany. Her father, Johann Wilhelm Preyer, taught at the Düsseldorf Royal Academy of Art and was considered the leading still life painter in Germany in the 19th century.
As women were not allowed to enroll in the Academy, Emilie became her father’s unofficial pupil.
The Düsseldorf Academy hit its peak of success in the mid-1800s, when it was internationally recognized as one of the most prestigious art schools in Europe.
Emilie dedicated herself exclusively to still-life painting and learned her father’s unique and meticulous draftsmanship.

Abraham Mignon | Baroque still-life painter

From National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.:

The son of shopkeepers, Abraham Mignon (1640-1679) was born in Frankfurt and baptized in the Calvinist church on June 21, 1640.
When his parents moved to Wetzlar in 1649, Mignon was placed under the care and artistic apprenticeship of Jacob Marrel (1614-1681), a still-life painter and art dealer.
Marrell was undoubtedly impressed with Mignon’s abilities, for he entrusted his affairs to him whenever he was away in Holland on business.
Furthermore, Marrell asked Mignon to instruct his stepdaughter, Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717), in still-life painting.
By 1664 Marrell and Mignon had left Frankfurt for Utrecht, and in 1669 both were registered in the Saint Luke’s Guild there.

Heinrich Heine | Amore mio, noi sedevamo insieme

Amore mio, noi sedevamo insieme
nell’intimo d’una barca leggera.
Navigavam nella notte silente
sulla strada infinita dei flutti.

L’isola degli Spiriti, sì bella,
tenue appariva al chiarore lunare;
al suono dolce d’una melodia

Lawton Silas Parker | Midsummer Idyll

Heinrich Heine | Di notte ti vedo nei sogni

Nightly I see you in dreams

Nightly I see you in dreams - you speak,
With kindliness sincerest,
I throw myself, weeping aloud and weak
At your sweet feet, my dearest.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe racconta Tiziano

Johann Wolfgang Goethe (Scrittore, poeta e drammaturgo Tedesco, 1749-1832) fece due viaggi in Italia tra il 1786-1788.
Mai la visita di un turista colto fu tanto determinante nella creazione di un’immagine dell’Italia, soprattutto da quando egli raccolse i suoi ricordi nel famosissimo "Italienische Reise", o "Viaggio in Italia" (1813-1817).

A Roma, di fronte alla grande pala della Madonna col Bambino e Santi, 1533-1535 scriveva:

"Più incantato ancora rimasi di fronte ad un quadro di Tiziano.
Esso supera in splendore quanti ne ho finora veduti. Se ciò dipenda dalla mia più affinata sensibilità, o se davvero esso sia il più bello, non saprei dire di certo".
