Emily Dickinson | The Spirit lasts, but in what mode / Lo Spirito persiste, ma in che modo..


The Spirit lasts - but in what mode -
Below, the Body speaks,
But as the Spirit furnishes -
Apart, it never talks -
The Music in the Violin
Does not emerge alone
But Arm in Arm with Touch, yet Touch
Alone - is not a Tune -

Sir. Joshua Reynolds PRA | Mrs. Lloyd | Smithsonian American Art Museum

Jane DeDecker | The Women's Suffrage Monument / Monumento al Suffragio Femminile


By Jane DeDecker / The concept of this proposed women’s monument was inspired by a letter from Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Lucretia Mott in which she wrote about the power of words and deeds:

"Every word we utter, every act we perform, waft unto innumerable circles, beyond".

I wanted to capture the collective energy from all women who have made this happen, as well as acknowledge that we still need to keep moving as we strive for equality.
When a water droplet impacts a body of water it pushes waves outward and rebounds upward as a smaller droplet. This droplet, called the daughter droplet - gains height - then falls back to the water in what is called a coalescent cascade. This describes the height, breadth, and lasting impact of the Suffragists’ work.
The composition centrally places Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton writing the Declaration of Sentiments. This friendship holds the beginning of the women’s movement, the drop of water coalescing its impact on US history. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony writing the Sentiments forms a unified force that truly speaks of the oneness of their purpose.

Stupenda

per te tutte le creature
del regno
si sono aperte
e tu sei diventata la regina
delle nostre ombre

Properzia de' Rossi (1490-1530) | The Only Woman in Vasari's Lives


Vita di madonna Properzia de' Rossi, scultrice bolognese

Properzia de Rossi | Relief of Joseph and Potiphars wife | Museum of San Petronio in Bologna

È gran cosa che in tutte quelle virtù et in tutti quelli esercizii ne’ quali, in qualunque tempo, hanno voluto le donne intromettersi con qualche studio, elle siano sempre riuscite eccellentissime e più che famose, come con una infinità di esempli agevolmente potrebbe dimostrarsi.
E certamente ognun sa quanto elleno universalmente tutte nelle cose economiche vagliono, oltra che nelle cose della guerra, medesimamente si sa chi fu Camilla, Arpalice, Valasca, Tomiri, Pantasilea, Molpadia, Orizia, Antiope, Ippolita, Semiramide, Zenobia; chi finalmente Fulvia di Marcantonio che, come dice Dione istorico, tante volte s’armò per defender il marito e se medesima.
Ma nella poesia ancora sono state maravigliosissime: come racconta Pausania, Corinna fu molto celebre nel versificare, et Eustachio, nel catalogo delle navi d’Omero, fa menzione di Safo, onoratissima giovane; il medesimo fa Eusebio nel libro de’ tempi, la quale invero se ben fu donna, ella fu però tale che superò di gran lunga tutti gli eccellenti scrittori di quella età.
