Flying Horse Of Gansu

    
Flying Horse Of Gansu

Eastern Han dynasty, 25 - 220 AD
Gansu Provincial Museum

This outstanding bronze horse has become an iconic emblem of China. Racing through the skies, it treads on a swallow (base of statue) that looks up in amazement. Unlike Pegasus, the Western flying horse, the wingless Han steed is meant to be understood metaphorically rather than literally; it represents an ideal horse that can gallop so fast that it seems to outrun the wind.

The sculpture is perfectly balanced on only one hoof, to complete the illusion of flight.

Perspective | A ‘Leonardo’ sells for $450 million. But what did the buyer actually get?

We are now in the age of post-mechanical reproduction, when the idea that there are “original” images and “copies” is barely sustainable. On the Internet, where most people live their intellectual lives, everything is a copy. And anyone can fabricate anything. Perhaps that explains why, in the rare case when a corporation like Christie’s can whip up a frenzy over an “original” painting by Leonardo, the prices go so crazy. What was being sold wasn’t a painting or an image or even an idea by Leonardo. It was a relic of physical touch.

With a handful of artists, Leonardo preeminent among them, any amount of authenticity is sufficient for marketers, salesmen and audiences who crave sacred objects.

Jean-Louis Forain, pintor impresionista, litógrafo, acuarelista y grabador francés nacido en 1852 en Reims, Marne.
A los de ocho años su familia se mudó a París. Comenzó su carrera trabajando como caricaturista para varias revistas de París, incluyendo Le Monde Parisien y Le rire satirique. Deseoso de expandir sus horizontes, se matriculó en la École des Beaux Arts, donde estudió con Jean-Léon Gérôme y el escultor y pintor Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux.

William Morris: Lo bello es más bello cuando es útil

Image/photo

Arts & Crafts se constituyó en 1880 y se convirtió en el centro de diseño y artesanía más importante de Gran Bretaña, tanto, que en cierta manera sus modelos siguen influyendo en el subconsciente de la clase media británica, con esa querencia entre industria y medievalismo inventado a que tan proclives fueron los de este movimiento, cuya vigencia real desapareció en 1914, cuando estalló la I Guerra Mundial, no sin antes haber influido en la renovación del diseño europeo y norteamericano, así, las tremendas lámparas Tiffany’s, de clara influencia art nouveau, no se entienden sin la cercana influencia de Arts & Crafts.

No se puede comprender gran parte de lo que supuso la renovación estética de William Morris si no atendemos que, para él, lo importante era crear la casa ideal, la beautiful home, ideal arcádico de la clase media de la isla, con la colaboración entre industria y artesanía, lo que le asemeja a lo que realizaban ya los Wiener Werkstäte, Talleres Vieneses, y más tarde, con su definitiva claridad, por la Bauhaus, es decir, la abolición entre artes mayores y menores e industria y artesanía, lo que tradicionalmente se llamaron Bellas Artes y Artes Decorativas.

La exposición está dividida en cuatro secciones cronológicas y temáticas con la muestra de 300 piezas de mobiliario, de piezas textiles, papeles pintados, joyas, cerámica, vidrio, metalistería, encuadernaciones de libros, fotografía, pintura, dibujo, grabado… en definitiva, un arte total.

Guiseppe Arcimboldo, The Librarian (1566 circa)

The work has been interpreted as both a celebration and a satirical mocking of librarians and scholarship.

Winckelmann made it better known by praising it in his History of Ancient Art, calling it "the glory and crown of art in this age as well as in others" and "so immaculate that it appears to have come fresh out of the hands of the artist". This was since, though Roman in date, it echoed the 5th century BC Greek style which Winckelmann preferred over Roman art.

We stayed with the children today.
It was the first time in 1500 years that the library was opened specifically for children.  :-)
It is normally a place for academics and is therefore very exclusive.
I have to admit, the children have not yet realized this special moment.
For us adults it was a wonderful experience .
