Marie Spartali Stillman | Pre-Raphaelite painter

From Christie's:

Marie Spartali Stillman was both a gifted artist and a major Pre-Raphaelite muse, who features as a model in many of the movement's most memorable works.
Stillman was the youngest daughter of wealthy Greek parents.
Her father, Michael Spartali, had made his money as a cotton merchant and served as Greek consul-general in London between 1866-1882.
The Spartali family were prominent members of the cultured and affluent Anglo-Greek community that came to have an enduring impact on the history of Victorian art; they included Burne-Jones' and Rossetti’s great patron Constantine Ionides and his family, as well as Maria Zambaco, Burne-Jones' model and mistress, and Aglaia Coronio, who sat for Rossetti.

Wisława Szymborska | Disattenzione / Distraction

Ieri mi sono comportata male nel cosmo.

Ho passato tutto il giorno senza fare domande,
senza stupirmi di niente.

Ho svolto attività quotidiane,
come se ciò fosse tutto il dovuto.

Inspirazione, espirazione, un passo dopo l’altro, incombenze,
ma senza un pensiero che andasse più in là
dell’uscire di casa e del tornarmene a casa.

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.

Pedro Salinas | Perdonami / Forgive me

Perdonami se ti cerco così
goffamente, dentro di te.
Perdonami il dolore, qualche volta.

Quello che non vedesti e che io vedo,
immerso nel tuo fondo, preziosissimo.

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

Pauline Palmer | Woman in a Garden, 1910
