Albrecht Altdorfer (1480-1538) | Biografia ed Opere


Albrecht Altdorfer è stato un pittore Tedesco🎨, fondatore della Scuola Danubiana nel sud della Germania, contemporaneo di Albrecht Dürer🎨.
Fu uno dei principali artisti del Rinascimento🎨 tedesco, oltre che pittore anche architetto, incisore, scultore, calcografo e disegnatore per xilografie. Dipinse rappresentazioni religiose e mitologiche, ma furono in particolare i suoi paesaggi a renderlo celebre per la loro bellezza: furono creati dall'artista non per illustrare storie e parabole, ma con il proposito di esaltare il fascino della natura e delle figure umane che si muovono all'interno di essa.

Albert Einstein: "La creatività è contagiosa. Trasmettila!"


▻ La logica ti porta da A a B. L'immaginazione ti porta ovunque!
▻ La creatività è contagiosa. Trasmettila!
▻ L'arte è l'espressione del pensiero più profondo nel modo più semplice.
▻ L'immaginazione è più importante della conoscenza. La conoscenza è limitata, l'immaginazione abbraccia il mondo.
▻ Per perdere la testa, bisogna averne una!

Niccolò Paganini by Johann Peter Lyser

Paganini | Cartoon Drawing by Johann Peter Lyser

Johann Peter Lyser
(German engraver, journalist, critic, miscellaneous writer; caricaturist,1804-1870)
about Paganini from the magazine "Originalien", 1830

"Paganini is an Italian artist🎨, and an Italian artist will be never sad or misanthrope. If he become that, it is the end of the art. In the character of Paganini there is nothing exalted.
His heart bits with a strong joy of living, it is attached to this land and to all it has to offer. However great the passion for his art is, he does despise nothing, not even things of little importance if they offer enjoyment […].
Paganini is one of the strangest, indeed baroque and certainly greatest phenomena, that cross land for over a century, but there is nothing mysterious about him. He his not like the stormy sea, but he is like the quiet lake.
