  • Edgar Degas
‘The Dancing Class’
Oil on Wood
1870

This is Degas's first depiction of a dance class. Because the artist did not yet have privileges to go backstage at the Paris Opéra, his subjects came to his studio to pose. These sessions yielded many large study drawings, which Degas subsequently adapted for other compositions. In the late 1870s, he explained, "I have painted so many of these dance examinations without having seen them that I am a little ashamed of it."

‘Fulang-Chang and I’
In two parts, oil on composition board with painted mirror frame
1937

Fulang-Chang and I depicts Kahlo with one of her pet monkeys, interpreted by many as surrogates for the children she and Diego Rivera were unable to conceive. The painting was included in the first major exhibition of her work, held at Julien Levy Gallery in New York in 1938. In the essay that accompanied the show, the Surrealist leader André Breton described Kahlo's work as "a ribbon around a bomb" and hailed her as a self-created Surrealist painter. Although she appreciated his enthusiasm for her work, Kahlo did not agree with his assessment: "They thought I was a Surrealist but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality." Kahlo later gave this painting to her close friend Mary Sklar, attaching a mirror to it so that, if Sklar chose, the two friends could be together.

오늘 모마로 처음 갔다. 그 식탁을 보는 게 내 마음을 엄청 달래줬다. 그리고 응, 그 마지막 사진 세 개가 그림이다!!!!!!! 참 놀랐다. 그냥 사진들이라고 생각했다. 그렇게 그림을 그릴 실력은 대박이다.

  • Emile Zolà scrisse che l' arte di Puvis de Chavannes fosse composta di "ragione, sentimento, volontà". In effetti il classicismo di Puvis, in pieno ottocento risulta da una feroce forza di volontà rispetto alla disarmonia del mondo che lo circonda. E dalla volontà discende la ragione, pura ragione lineare, come in questa Maddalena in meditazione. Ma a spezzare la dominante razionalista classicista sta il sentimento. È un sentimento del simbolo difficile, aspro austero, non è certo la dominante passionale, quasi urlata, dei romantici. Si riduce a una contemplazione assorta di un vuoto, come il deserto quasi monocromo del dipinto. In un certo senso Puvis de Chavannes è uno dei padri del simbolismo Nabis, della sua aprospetticità, ma, a differenza dei Nabis quella ricerca di suggestione, di atmosfera psichica, è venata di un profondo vuoto e di un' incolmabile solitudine interiore
