Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) | Hope / La Speranza

Alex Venezia (American painter, 1993)

"Hope" is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all
And sweetest in the Gale is heard
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm
I've heard it in the chillest land
And on the strangest Sea
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

Anja Bührer | Surreal silhouettes


Anja Bührer, aka Latoday, is a Berlin-based photographer and digital artist. Bührer uses her hauntingly beautiful aesthetic to depict a myriad of dreamy scenes. Bührer's conceptual photographs lie somewhere between dreams and nightmares, as though one is trapped in this in-between state of unconsciousness.
There's a haziness throughout her dreamed, souls, and street collections that somehow balance the familiar with the unknown.

Catherine Klein - Vintage Art


Catharina Klein [b. 1861, Eylau, East Prussia - d. 1929, Berlin, Germany] is also known as Catherine Klein. Her name was Anglicized during WWI to avoid any disinclination to buy her work. She is sometimes mistakenly referred to as "Christine". Her signature is "C.Klein" and usually accompanies her work, especially in those postcards and prints closest to the original paintings which were in oil or gouache, an opaque watercolor paint. If her signature is underlined, it’s an indication of an earlier work. She rode the crest of chromolithography at the end of the 19th and into the 20th Century. Catharina Klein was born in 1861 in Eylau in East Prussia (what is now a Russian province called Kallinigrad which is actually separated by the Baltic States from Mainland Russia).

Catherine Coren, 1949 ~ Salon music

Catherine Coren was has always attracted the attention of art amateurs and contemporary masters because of her innate talent, her artist’s sensitivity and her sense of drawing.
In 1980 E. Baboulene wrote to her: “I am touched and marveled at the sight of your paintings, I congratulate you on your work”.
On the basis of Cezanne’s claim that a painter is recognized “by the distance he takes with motif” Catherine Coren is a genius painter. Her landscapes traced with supple and vehement lines, a touch of lyrical spark are plastically very pure. The artist's interiors are a mix of balanced layout, harmony of shades and cold lighting. Coren asserts herself as a great painter of the 1990’s and her laurels are the just reward for her passionate and unrelenting work. For more than 15 years, she has presented her works in Group and Solo Exhibitions in New York, Cannes, Bruxelles, Nancy, Paris and Strasbourg.
