  • Vincent Van Gogh
‘Self-Portrait Dedicated to Paul Gauguin’
Oil on Canvas
1888

_
In early 1888, Van Gogh moved to Arles in the south of France, where he hoped to establish an art colony. Believing that painting could be reinvented through the genre of portraiture, he encouraged his fellow artists to paint themselves, and then to exchange the canvases. After receiving self-portraits from Emile Bernard and Gauguin, who were working together in Brittany at the time, Van Gogh inscribed this painting “To my friend Paul Gauguin,” and sent it to him. He described the process of creating his arresting likeness in several letters to his brother Theo, an art dealer in Paris, explaining how he manipulated his features in response to Japanese prints, changed the contours of his jacket for coloristic effect, and painted the background “pale veronese green” without any shadows. Shortly after he sent the work to Gauguin, however, their friendship deteriorated, and Gauguin sold it for three hundred francs.

Like the other women Impressionists, Gonzalès could not attend the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, the prestigious art school as women students were forbidden. Fortunately, her upper-class status provided her with the financial resources to pursue her artistic career and, after training for a while with Charles Joshua Chaplin, a society painter connected to the state-funded French Academy. In 1869, she met the avant-garde painter, Édouard Manet. By all accounts, he was very drawn to Gonzalès and, in addition to forging a friendship with her, took her on as his student - the only student he ever accepted, although by all accounts the arrangement was not particularly formal. He had met another one of the women Impressionists, Berthe Morisot, and, by all accounts, was equally taken with her, also painting her portrait on multiple occasions as he had Gonzalès's but never taking her on as a student.

  • Medusa’nın Ölümü
__________
Medusa’nın ölümü ise Zeus’la Akrisios’un kızı Danae’nin birlikteliğinden doğan Perseus’un elinden olur.
Athena ise Medusa’ya duyduğu öfke ve düşmanlıkla Perseus’a yardım etmeye karar verir. 
______
Perseus’a, Medusa’yı kız kardeşlerinden ayırt edebilmesi için önce Üç Gorgon’un heykelinin bulunduğu Samos’daki Deikterion şehrine gitmesini ve Medusa’yı bulduğunda ise onunla göz göze gelmemesi gerektiğini tembihler. Bunun dışında Hermes’ten Medusa’nın başını kesmek için tırpan ve Stygia Nymphalarından (perilerinden) da kanatlı bir çift sandalet, kesik başı koyacağı sihirli torbayı ve Hades’in sahip olduğu görünmezlik miğferini alır.
______
Gereken her şeyi alan Perseus, tanrıçanın söylediği yerde Medusa ve kardeşlerini bulur. Etrafta Medusa’nın bakışlarından taşa dönmüş ve yağmurdan aşınmış bir yığın insan ve hayvanın arasından geçer ve Gorgonlar arasında Medusa’yı kolayca bulur. Athena’nın tuttuğu zırha bakarak Medusa’nın bakışlarından etkilenmeyen Perseus, yaratığın başını vücudundan ayırır.
______
Medusa’dan fışkıran kanlardan kanatlı bir at olan Pegasos(Pegasus) ile Savaşçı Khrysaor ortaya çıkar. Bunlar Medusa’nın deniz tanrısı olan Poseidon’dan olan çocuklarıdır.
______
(📸görseldeki eser Perseus'un Medusa'nın kafasını keserken göstermektir. Heykeltraş Benvenuto Cellini. 16. yüzyıl bronz heykel.)

‘Cool White’

Lee Krasner’s reputation as a colourist was established early in her career. Cool white 1959, by contrast, has a sombre palette restricted to umber and white. It was painted during a difficult time for the artist, who was still coping with her grief over the 1956 death of her husband Jackson Pollock, and having difficulties with the Pollock Estate. In addition, her mother died in 1959 and an exhibition scheduled by Clement Greenberg for French and Company was cancelled. Of her 1959 paintings, Krasner recalled:

. “I painted a great many of them because I couldn’t sleep nights. I got tired of fighting insomnia and tried to paint instead. And I realized that if I was going to work at night I would have to knock out color altogether, because I couldn’t deal with color except in daylight.”

  • Le Lit (The Bed) - Henri de Toulouse Lautrec (1892)

We all know the great Toulouse Lautrec for his masterpieces representing the bright and mundane Parisian lifestyle between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th. But, could such a sensitive painter be content with just the representation of ephemeral, superficial pleasures?

Of course, not. And that's why he decided to show us what happened "behind the scenes", with this amazing series of paintings set in intimate contexts. Here, all the prostitutes and dancers of Toulouse Lautrec's art can take off their wigs and fancy clothes, and just be themselves. They can leave their clients and be with their true love (often, another woman). Such a delicate and tender point of view perfectly match with Toulouse Lautrec's personality, always interested in looking for what was hidden under the surface of a fake and hypocritical society.

So sorry for my absence these days! 😬 Lot of work to do, but now I'm finally breathing!

  • #петербургскийкалендарь 21 февраля 1919 г. в Петрограде был торжественно открыт музей (музей-выставка) здравоохранения (основан 1 января 1918 г.). Музей устроили в здании бывшего Шуваловского дворца (Итальянская, 25; угол с Малой Садовой). Так началась история Центра медицинской профилактики и Музея гигиены. 
На открытии Выставки — Музея присутствовал Народный комиссар здравоохранения России Н. А. Семашко. Многие выдающиеся ученые присоединились к этой работе, что способствовало подъему авторитета и популярности нового учреждения, основной целью которого было провозглашено санитарное просвещение и повышение гигиенической культуры населения, профилактика наиболее распространенных заболеваний среди взрослых и детей.
В 1931 г. в здании музея был создан Дом санитарной культуры, в 40- годы реорганизован в Дом санитарного просвещения, в 1989 г. он получил статус Центра здоровья, а с 1993 г. преобразован в Центр медицинской профилактики. Выставка — Музей здравоохранения, а теперь Музей гигиены стал основополагающей составной частью вновь образованного учреждения.
Центр и музей с момента основания располагаются в бывшем дворце Шувалова. Он построен в середине XVIII века по проекту архитектора С. И. Чевакинского. Первым владельцем особняка был И. И. Шувалов — видный общественный деятель, меценат, основавший в Петербурге академию художеств. #историяпетербурга #историяроссии #гидпопетербургу #музеиспб #музейгиоиены #нашаистория #интереснознать #шувалов #дворцыспб #петроград #мойтеруки #saintpetersburgguide #museums #spb #спб #1919
