"La belle histoire d'amour entre le street art et le XIIIe arrondissement de Paris" | W. Plummer

"La belle histoire d'amour entre le street art et le XIIIe arrondissement de Paris" | W. Plummer | Looks - Photography - Images & Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"Dans les rues de cet arrondissement du sud de la capitale, le street art fait désormais partie du paysage. Depuis 2004, de titanesques fresques ont fleuri sur les façades d'immeubles. Une démarche soutenue par la mairie. Dans le XIIIe arrondissement de Paris, en l'espace d'une dizaine d'années, le street art est devenu roi. Un phénomène lié à l'arrivée, de quatre galeries d'art urbain, dont la Galerie Itinerrance." (William Plummer)

"View of Toledo" | El Greco

"View of Toledo" | El Greco | Looks - Photography - Images & Visual Languages | Scoop.it
Monica Mirza's insight:

"[...] El Greco portrays the city he lived and worked in for most of his life. The painting belongs to the tradition of emblematic city views, rather than a faithful documentary description. The view of the eastern section of Toledo from the north would have excluded the cathedral, which the artist therefore imaginatively moved to the left of the Alcázar [...]".

A gorgeous painting -I only knew the painter's portraits and somehow find this landscape most modern...
