Edna St. Vincent Millay | When the Year Grows Old / Quando l’anno invecchia

I cannot but remember
When the year grows old -
October - November -
How she disliked the cold!

She used to watch the swallows
Go down across the sky,
And turn from the window
With a little sharp sigh.

And often when the brown leaves
Were brittle on the ground,
And the wind in the chimney
Made a melancholy sound.

Egon Schiele | I, eternal child / Io, eterno fanciullo

I, eternal child,
always watched the passage of the rutting people and did not want
to be inside them, I said -
spoke and did not speak, I listened and wanted
to hear them and see into them, strongly and more strongly.

I, eternal child -
I sacrificed myself for others …
who looked and did not see me …

Anne-Christine Roda, 1974 | Hyperrealist painter

Anne-Christine Roda is an French painter🎨.
She defines a highly original interpretation of the portrait:  in her work the painting is entirely subjugated to the portrayal of man’s fragility.
Her paintings, in terms of the choice of pose for her models and the neutral treatment of their backgrounds are as rooted in tradition, as her subjects are sourced unequivocally from our contemporary era.
Her choice of subject speaks directly to our everyday lives.
