Un peigne ou une oeuvre d'art ? Une histoire à démêler !

Un peigne ou une oeuvre d'art ? Une histoire à démêler ! | Art-Arte-Cultura | Scoop.it

La "première collection Salt", constituée entre 1819 et 1824, arrive à Livourne en Italie fin 1825 - début 1826. Ce consul anglais, passionné d'antiquités, employait plusieurs collaborateurs, dont les plus connus sont Giovanni Battista Belzoni, Giovanni Athanasi, afin de chercher, et trouver, les pièces les plus belles de l'art égyptien, et de les acquérir… Champollion souhaite ardemment que cette collection soit acquise par la France, mais il a beaucoup de mal à convaincre Charles X. Au printemps 1826, les choses cependant semblent se dessiner : il est mandaté par le souverain pour aller à Livourne afin de dresser l'inventaire descriptif des 4014 pièces. Il y découvre une variété incroyable d'artefacts : cela va des monuments les plus imposants aux amulettes les plus fines. Sarcophages, cartonnages, statues, stèles, coffres, mobilier, vases, oushebtis, papyrus, sceaux, sandales, vanneries, masques funéraires, bijoux, amulettes… en bois, grès, bronze, terre émaillée, calcaire, faïence, albâtre, serpentine, or, ivoire… On imagine la joie, l'étonnement, l'admiration qui doivent l'envahir face à de telles merveilles ! La France donnera finalement son accord pour l'achat de cet ensemble : "Malgré toutes les intrigues des ennemis des frères Champollion, Charles X ratifia l'achat de la collection en février 1826 au prix demandé de 250.000 francs."

Khatia Buniatishvili: Schumann Klavierkonzert  (Paavo Järvi & Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra) 

Khatia Buniatishvili ( born June 21, 1987) is a Georgian concert pianist.

Khatia Buniatishvili began studying piano under her mother at the age of three. She gave her first concert with the Chamber Orchestra in Tbilisi at the age of six. From the age of ten she gave concerts in Europe, Ukraine, Armenia, Israel and the USA. She graduated from the Tbilisi Central Music School, then entered the Tbilisi State Conservatory in 2004. Buniatishvili, who has described the piano as a "symbol of musical solitude", chose the piano over the violin despite her perfect pitch. She and her (older) sister Gvantsa learned the piano together and performed duets at home. Buniatishvili has played with, among other orchestras, the Orchestre de Paris under Paavo Järvi, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France under Daniele Gatti and the Philharmonia Orchestra in London. She has also performed chamber music with musicians including Gidon Kremer and Renaud Capuçon. In 2010 she received the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, and was included in the BBC series New Generation Artists. The Vienna Musikverein and Konzerthaus nominated her as Rising Star for the 2011–12 season, and in 2012 she was awarded Best Newcomer of the Year in the Echo Klassik awards. In 2010, Buniatishvili signed an exclusive recording contract with Sony Classical Records. Her 2011 debut album marked Liszt’s 200th anniversary, and included his Sonata in B minor, Liebestraum No 3, La Campanella, Hungarian Rhapsody No 2, and Mephisto Waltz. Classic FM stated in its review of the album that "Buniatishvili is a young artist with a huge temperament and technique that puts one in mind of the young Martha Argerich". Gramophone was less impressed, its reviewer Jed Distler criticising a "texturally and rhythmically vague" Liebesträume No. 3 and stating, of Buniatishvili's Sonata in B Minor, that "her antsy rhythmic sense, dynamic miscalculations and general lack of long-range planning wear thin after several hearings". This recording was followed by a 2012 album devoted to Chopin, combining solo piano works with Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, accompanied by the Orchestre de Paris and Paavo Järvi. The Guardian reported "This is playing straight from the heart from one of today's most exciting and technically gifted young pianists". Gramophone, on the other hand, criticised Buniatshvili's recording of the Piano Concerto No. 2 for a "lack of poise and excessive speed". In 2014, Buniatishvili released her third album on Sony Classical, titled Motherland. Rather than being devoted to one particular composer as her previous albums were, Motherland was an assortment of personally significant pieces, including music from her homeland Georgia. She dedicated the album to her mother.[14][15] Her fourth album, Kaleidoscope, was released in 2016. It featured her interpretation of Pictures at an Exhibition as well as works by Ravel and Stravinsky. Buniatishvili speaks five languages fluently: Georgian, French, English, German and Russian.

El truco que utilizaba Rembrandt para pintar sus alabados autorretratos

El truco que utilizaba Rembrandt para pintar sus alabados autorretratos | Art-Arte-Cultura | Scoop.it
Image copyright Getty Images
Image caption Los expertos encontraron cierta desviación de la mirada en los autorretratos de Rembrandt, una anomalía que se explicaría con el uso de una proyección.

Vestido con ropa ancha y oscura, Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn sostiene sus utensilios de trabajo con la mano izquierda y clava los ojos en quien lo observa.

Pero en su mirada ya no se percibe el vigor de quien fuera el pintor más famoso de Países Bajos.

En ella hay más bien dolor, rencor quizá, por la incomprensión que generaron sus obras tardías y las consecuencias que eso tuvo en su vida: moriría prácticamente en la pobreza.

La mujer que pidió visitar una exposición de Rembrandt antes de morir

Pero tal expresividad, la misma que inspiraría después a otros maestros como el español Francisco de Goya, tuvo truco.

Eso es al menos lo que creen Francis O'Neill y Sofia Palazzo, coautores del estudio 'Rembrandt's self-portraits' (Los autorretratos de Rembrandt), recién publicado en la revista especializada Journal of Optics.

De acuerdo a los investigadores, tanto para el Autorretrato con paleta y pinceles (1660-1665) como para el resto de pinturas y grabados que hizo de sí mismo, el maestro barroco se valió de una técnica con la que por aquél entonces se estaba experimentando para observar estrellas y microorganismos.

Image copyright Getty Images
Image caption Rembrandt pintó un centenar de autorretratos, de los que se conservan la mitad.

En su investigación, O'Neill y Palazzo aseguran que Rembrandt utilizaba un sistema de espejos para proyectar su imagen sobre una superficie sobre la que después trabajaba.

Y proponen cinco configuraciones posibles: una usando un espejo cóncavo, tres en base a una combinación de un espejo plano y un espejo cóncavo, y otra con dos espejos planos y una lente.

Cámara oscura

No es la primera vez que expertos sugieren que Rembrant se sirvió de un truco óptico para lograr los autorretratos tan alabados con los que fue trazando su propia biografía.

Las matemáticas escondidas en las grandes obras de arte

Ya en 2011 Charles Falco, profesor de la Facultad de Ciencias Ópticas de la Universidad de Arizona, y el artista británico David Hockney, aseguraron que él y otros pintores neerlandeses como Johannes Vermeer utilizaron la cámara oscura para realizar sus obras.

El instrumento, consistente en un caja cerrada con un pequeño agujero por el que entra una mínima cantidad de luz, permite obtener una proyección plana de una imagen externa sobre la zona interior de su superficie.

Image copyright Getty Images
Image caption Hay quien sugirió que Rembrandt y otros maestros holandeses se valían de cámaras oscuras.

Fue uno de los dispositivos ancestrales que condujeron al desarrollo de la fotografía, pero entonces ya lo estaba utilizando el astrónomo alemán Johannes Kepler para seguir el movimiento del Sol y los planetas.

Sin embargo, para O'Neill esto no tenía sentido, ya que al ser el pintor también el sujeto del cuadro, no podía estar en dos posiciones la mismo tiempo.

Esto es, fuera de la caja, como modelo, y dentro para pintar la imagen proyectada.

Así que en 2012 empezó junto a Palazzo a hacer una serie de autorretratos sirviéndose de técnicas varias para tratar de descubrir el secreto de Rembrandt, y ambos se convencieron de que la base era una combinación de espejos.

Rembrandt "pintó incluso un par de autorretratos sobre cobre, una superficie sobre la que las proyecciones pueden verse muy claramente", explica en el estudio.

Image copyright Getty Images
Image caption Con sus autorretratos Rembrandt trazó su propia biografía.

"Hacer el autorretrato en el que se le ve riéndose y con los ojos muy abiertos habría requerido una disciplina física increíble, para de forma alterna mirarse en el espejo para crear luego la imagen", asegura O'Neill.

El experto se refiere a un grabado que hizo de sí mismo en 1630, cuando empezó a cosechar sus primeros éxitos en Leiden, su ciudad natal, tras haberse formado con Pieter Lastman en la capital, Ámsterdam.

Pero según O'Neill, el artista no tuvo que apartar la mirada del lienzo en ese caso ni en ningún otro, ya que habría trazado el dibujo sobre una imagen proyectada en el mismo.

Anomalías

A esa conclusión llegaron tras encontrar en los autorretratos de Rembrandt anomalías propias de un proceso de proyección, como la mirada ligeramente desviada.

Además, según los expertos, Rembrandt se habría valido del claroscuro— el acusado contraste entre la luz y las sombras, una técnica que el holandés dominaba a la perfección— para esconder las partes que el espejo no le permitía ver de forma detallada.

Image copyright Getty Images
Image caption Rembrandt es considerado el artista holandés más importante de todos los tiempos.

En relación a esto, detectaron en todos los cuadros un área circular a partir del cual la calidad del retrato se deteriora.

Sin embargo, varios historiadores de arte criticaron la conclusión a la que llegaron O'Neill y Palazzo en su estudio, ya que no existe ningún documento histórico que recoja que Rembrandt se valía de esa técnica.

Aunque eso no es motivo para desechar la investigación, reclaman sus autores, ya que es de sobra conocido que los grandes artistas de la historia mantuvieron sus técnicas en secreto y muchas de ellas se han conocido décadas después, al estudiar sus lienzos.

Entre 1620 y su muerte, en 1669, Rembrandt se autorretrató un centenar de veces, y a día de hoy se conservan la mitad de esos cuadros.

Por ello se le considera el maestro de la luz del siglo XVII y el artista más importante de Países Bajos de todos los tiempos.

Y eso difícilmente lo cambia un sencillo truco óptico.

Gregory Gallardo

Gregory Gallardo | Art-Arte-Cultura | Scoop.it

Gregory Gallardo was born in Santa Ana, California in 1962. As a teenager, he was mentored by artist Don White and found early success exhibiting his figurative drawings and paintings. Gregory attended several local Southern California Colleges and University’s, but had little patience for organized art instruction and found that networking with other successful artists to be a more satisfying learning experience. Gregory soon left the confines of the classroom, and throughout the 1980s and 1990s, toured and recorded as a professional musician, all while continuing to produce commissioned art work and the occasional gallery exhibit. He reemerged on the art scene full-time in early 2001 blending his love for music and dance performance to create his own unique views on humanity and spirituality. In addition, he nurtured a long standing admiration for people on the street and the common person at work – the homeless, field-workers, street performers – all find their way into his art. Viewers are often stunned by the power of the personal nature and emotional energy in his work, not often scene in today’s art market. Since his return in 2001 Gregory’s work has exhibited extensively throughout California and found its way into several permanent collections on a national scale.

Cecilia Levy | Art-Arte-Cultura | Scoop.it
Swedish artist Cecilia Levy creates cups, saucers, bowls, plates and saucers out of paper, turning delicate 2D materials into layered 3D sculptures. Although she often uses books from the beginning of the last century, her choices are not narrow as she has also utilized Spiderman comics for an entire series. To create each work, she takes apart the books, magazines, and comics, tearing the pages and pasting small pieces of them back together. Levy explains her works are, “eggshell thin, yet remarkably steady. The story lives on, but in a different shape.” Cecilia Levy’s background is in graphic design and bookbinding, but began to experiment with dissecting books to produce different shapes in 2009. Since 2013 Levy has worked full time as a paper artist, exhibiting her work in both Sweden and abroad.
