Bloom with the Super Flower Moon! 🌸🌝
Max Ernst's lunar beauty "Le mardi, la lune s'endimanche" 1964 was featured in the exhibition "Max Ernst - Yves Tanguy: Deux Vision du Surréalisme" at the Paul Valery Museum in 2016.
.
"In Le mardi la lune s'endimanche the resulting stylistic duality of composition and disintegration is rendered particularly vividly through Ernst’s use of grattage.
This technique, developed in the mid-1920s was a painterly version of frottage, the technique Ernst first employed in pencil and paper: ‘One rainy day in 1925 Ernst was first inspired to explore the possibilities of frottage by the look of the grooves in the well-scrubbed floor of his hotel room at the seashore in Pornic… As he developed the procedure, he used a variety of new elements to start with - stale bread crumbs, grained leather, striated glassware, a straw hat, twine - always transforming the results so that whatever lay beneath his paper experienced a metamorphosis… These works are sensual and tactile, with images of rubbed objects that appear as ghostly traces of form." (W. Spies, op. cit., The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, 2005).

Inside view of our current exhibition "Masterworks" featuring Pablo Picasso, Guitare, 1918.
.
Picasso, "Guitare", 1918, presents an internal enframement which is clearly outlined and in addition given the tentative illusion of being nailed at the top as if to a wall.
.
The shape-character in this case is rectilinear and, rather than appearing amorphous, the six sided polygon invites comparison, and provocatively negative comparison, with the regular hexagon.
.
In this case, furthermore, the irregularity is intensified by the eccentric placement of the polygon within the surrounding rectangle, as well as through its avoidance of that rectangle, for the most part, by a good wide margin"

"We must hold enormous faith in ourselves." (Giorgio de Chirico) Today we're celebrating the legacy of Giorgio de Chirico and his fascination with Gladiators.
...
When de Chirico published "Hebdomeros" in 1929, his sole novel, the Surrealists, who had often been very hostile to his work, received it as a masterpiece of Surrealist writing. In "On Classical Ground, Picasso, Léger, de Chirico and the New Classicism 1910-1930", E. Cowling and J. Mundy discuss the relationship between "Hebdomeros" and paintings of the period:
"In this strange dream-like tale can be found many of the motifs that recur in his paintings, including the theme of gladiators. At one stage in their travels Hebdomeros and his companions found themselves in a vast room with a high ceiling, decorated in the style of 1880; the lighting and general atmosphere of room, which was totally devoid of furniture, recalled the gaming rooms in Monte Carlo. In a corner, two gladiators wearing diving helmets were exercising half-heartedly under the bored gaze of a master, a pensioned ex-gladiator with a vulture-like eye and a scarred body."
.
These two paintings were both featured in the exhibition "Mnemosyne: de Chirico and Antiquity" held at Helly Nahmad Gallery, NY in 2015.
1. Giorgio de Chirico, "Gladiatori in una Stanza", 1928-1930
2. Giorgio de Chirico, "Scuola di Gladiatori" (School of Gladiators)
, c. 1927

On this Asteroid Day ☄️we're thinking of Max Ernst's "Plein vol" (Full flight), 1966 featured for the exhibition "Max Ernst - Yves Tanguy: Two Visions of Surrealism" at Musée Paul Valéry in 2016.
...⠀
Max Ernst was one of the most influential figures of both the Dada and Surrealist movements. Techniques like frottage and collage allowed Ernst to create a world of frozen nebula and cosmic visions, combining and juxtaposing forms like elements in a dream.⠀
.⠀
Sensing the importance of the nascent advances in astronomy, Ernst produced a book of prints called "Maximiliana or the illegal exercise of astronomy" in 1964.⠀
“Plein vol” produced in 1966 reverberates with a hint of mystery and poetry, where an irrational combination of geometric elements, organic form and a familiar motif float like celestial bodies.

La Pianiste wishes you an inspiring and creative week! 🎶
...
"La Pianiste" 1937, by Georges Braque was on view last Spring for the exhibition, "Braque, Miró, Calder et Nelson à Varengille" at the Musée des Beaux-Arts of Rouen.
Bold in color, daring in structure and of monumental scale, "La Pianiste" represents the pivotal moment in Georges Braque’s career when he synthesized his Cubist sense of space with the vibrant palette of his early Fauve years.
.
In "La Pianiste", Braque uses thick layers of oil and sand without varnish to evoke the patterned walls, tasseled cushion of the chair and delicately models the piano to evoke a faux bois effect previously rendered by collage elements. The unvarnished surface of the present work gives the canvas an immediate and tactile quality found in the artist's most highly regarded works.

'I am conscious only of the forces I use, and I am driven by an idea that I really only grasp as it grows with the picture.' (Henri Matisse)
...
“Figure assise et le torse grec (la gandoura) was on view for the exhibition “‪Matisse Métamorphoses ‬at the Matisse Museum” last Winter in Nice.
.
Painted in 1939, “Figure assise et le torse grec (la gandoura) is a luminous, colourful painting that provides an insight into Matisse's lyrical world, and also into his working methods. There is a spontaneity with which he has rendered some of the forms, for instance of the plant in the background and the 'gandoura', the Levantine garment worn by the model in the foreground.
This item of clothing, combined with the philodendron shown behind, give a hint of the exoticism, the Ottoman sensuality, that Matisse conjured into existence in his studio. .
This concern with harmony and beauty were all the more central to Matisse's work during the late 1930s, for the world was on the brink of war.

Loving the love in this painting 💕 “Ma gosse et sa mère" (My kid and her mother) 1908, by Kees Van Dongen was on view for the exhibition "Van Dongen et le Bateau-Lavoir" at the Musee Montmartre in Paris, 2018.

...
Van Dongen lived at the Bateau-Lavoir from the end of 1905 and frequented, among others, the Dutch artist Otto van Rees, as well as Maurice Vlaminck, André Derain, Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso. Van Dongen's stay at Bateau-Lavoir greatly influenced the evolution of his work. This exhibition aimed to show how decisive this period was for the artist and traced the impact that this unavoidable place in Montmartre has had on the evolution of the painter’s career.

Happy birthday to Joan Miró!
...
"Mont-Roig, le pont" is one of an exceptional group of landscape paintings Miró made in the Summer of 1917 in the Catalonian landscape around his family home in Montroig. It was in these works that Miró first began to 'synthesize' his perception of the landscape whith his deep rooted spiritual feeling for it through the use of exaggerated and vaguely abstract form and intensified colour.
.
Drawing stylistically on the combined influence of Fauvism and Cubism and fusing them into a unique formal language, Miró attempted in these works to commune with the landscape and to render it as personal vision of his inner experience. Mont-roig, le pont depicts the winding tracks of the dry river-bed as it winds under the bridge and through the harsh but vital summer landscape of Montroig.

Don't forget to call your siblings today! It's National Siblings Day!
....
Picasso's depictions of Claude and Paloma are some of the most engaging and intimate of his entire production. These canvases provide a rare glimpse into the artist's life as a father and evidence the joy and wonder that he experienced watching his children at play. Picasso was already in his 60s by the time Claude and Paloma were born.
.
Having children at an advanced age was something that emboldened him and furthered his quest for staying forever young, and he often incorporated this retrograde approach to his life into his art. Marina Picasso once remembered her grandfather saying, "At eight, I was Raphael. It took me a whole lifetime to paint like a child"
.
Picasso, "Enfants Dessinant, 12 May 1954", was featured in the past exhibition "Picasso dans la Collection Nahmad" in 2013 at the Grimaldi Forum.

What can we say, we adore "ZADOR" by Vasarely! 🔵
...
"ZADOR", a display of geometric abstraction, is an early example of Vasarely’s employment of the "unité plastique", the artist’s iconic technique that involves the use of recurrent geometric shapes as “units” taking on varying colors and arrangements.
.
In the present work, the circles provide a smooth, infinite flexibility which contrasts from the pointed, structured edges of the geometric squares. The varying sizes of the geometric shapes suggest the presence of a foreground and background that points to a three-dimensional pictorial space, yet such spatial possibility is denied by the use of flat colours in the picture. Such argument and interplay between the flexible and the defined, the structured and the infinite are characteristic of Vasarely’s artistic practice.

Wishing a safe and Happy Passover to all those celebrating around the globe!
Delacroix "Juive de Tanger en costume d'apparat" (Jewish woman from Tangier with pageantry costume), 1835.
...
Delacroix is widely regarded as the leader of the Romantic movement in 19th Century French art. In the winter of 1832, Delacroix traveled to Morocco with the French ambassador on a diplomatic mission for six months. While he was traveling, he did not have a studio and rarely had time to set up an easel. Instead, he returned home with over one thousand pages of sketches and notes to paint from.
.
The young woman depicted here is a young bride, member of the Bouzaglo family, whom Delacroix visited while in Tangier. This work most notably relates to the 1841 oil on canvas "Jewish Wedding in Morocco", in the collection of The Louvre Museum in Paris.

"It should also be born in mind that the research on ‘movement’ and the dynamic outlook on the world, which were the basis of Futurist theory, in no way required one to paint nothing but speeding cars or ballerinas in action; for a person who is seated, or an inanimate object, though apparently static, could be considered dynamically and suggest dynamic forms. I may mention as an example the 'Portrait of Madame S.' (1912) and the 'Seated Woman' (1914)." (Gino Severini)
...
Gino Severini (1883-1966) was an Italian painter who settled in Paris in 1906. In 1910, he became a leading member of the Futurist movement and signed up the "Manifesto tecnico della pittura futurista" together with his fellow Italians: Boccione, Carrà and Balla. The futurists challenged traditional artistic notions and aimed to capture the dynamic vision and energy of the modern world. "We declare… a new beauty, the beauty of speed. A racing motor car… is more beautiful than the Victory of Samothrace. (A celebrated ancient Greek sculpture in the Louvre museum in Paris.)" (Excerpt from the "Manifesto tecnico della pittura futurista")
.
Although most Futurists represented speed through technologies, urban landscapes or portrayals, Severini frequently chose to depicts dancers to express Futurist theories of dynamism in art.

Sharing magic Monday vibes with our friends near and far, sun beams courtesy of the sun god Apollo.
"One had to have seen many pictures by Mantegna, Botticelli, Verrochio and the early renaissance painters who began to blend the sense of the antique with the forms of Gothic art in order to fully understand the style of M. Gustave Moreau." (Theophile Gautier, 1866)
...
Moreau was one of the main protagonists of the Symbolist movement from the mid-1880s onwards. He influenced Matisse, Rouault as well as the Fauvist painters. According to Douglass Druick, "Moreau explored the theme of humakind's potential for good and evil, enlightenment and chaos, employing symbolic contrasts between light and dark, beauty and monstrosity..."
.
The present work depicts the sun god Apollo being venerated by the Satyrs. In Greek and Roman mythology, Apollo was imbued with powers of prophecy, healing, music and poetry, amidst other powers. "Apollo Receiving Gifts from the Shepherds" is a compelling painting to celebrate the legacy of Moreau, who was born today, as it masterfully reflects an exquisite expression of the mystical and the magical.
