I was going through a time where I was really tender. These two pieces are in collection with a wonderful board member from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I’m feeling them right now.

From The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō in the Hōeidō edition (1833–1834), a series of ukiyo-e woodcut prints created by Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese: 歌川 広重; 1797-1858), after his first travel along the Tōkaidō in 1832.

The Tōkaidō, linking the shōgun's capital, Edo, to the imperial one, Kyōto, was the main travel and transport artery of old Japan.

Hiroshige was considered the last great master of the ukiyo-e tradition. The subjects of his work were atypical of the genre, whose typical focus was on beautiful women, popular actors, and other scenes of the urban pleasure districts of Japan's Edo period (1603–1868). Even though the Hōeidō edition is by far the best known, The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō was such a popular subject that it led Hiroshige to create some 30 different series of woodcut prints on it, all very different one from the other.

The Hōeidō edition of the Tōkaidō is Hiroshige's best known work, and the best sold ever ukiyo-e Japanese prints. Coming just after Hokusai's Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series, it established this new major theme of ukiyo-e, the landscape print, or fūkei-ga, with a special focus on "famous views" (meisho). These landscape prints took full advantage of the new possibilities offered by the Western representation of perspective, that Japanese artists had by now fully assimilated. Hiroshige's series met with full success, not only in Japan, but later in Western countries.

A character I created. This first picture is my current design. The pic order goes from current to oldest. I drew the first version and really liked the face and decided to try to develop her a bit more. I’m still trying to think of a story. Im thinking she’s from the 1700s.

Blind Man's Bluff (1769)
Artist: Jean-Honoré Fragonard
Medium: Oil on canvas
Art Movement: Rococo
-

This beautiful painting is a wonderful example of Rococo and captures the essence of the movement perfectly. The feeling can be described as flirtatious and youthful. The Toledo Museum of Art, where the painting is located, describes the work: "Playfully erotic and sensuously painted, Jean-Honoré Fragonard's scene of youthful flirtation fulfils the eighteenth-century aristocratic French taste for romantic pastoral themes. The figures are beautifully dressed in rustic but improbably clean and fashionable clothes; the woman's shoes even have elegant bows on them."
-

Although dressed in pastoral clothing, the two are likely nobles or bourgeois figures. It breaks reality and spills into the more romantic, playful side of Rococo. - "The painting was intended to accompany The See-Saw (1750), currently, held by the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, in Madrid. Both are painted in the style and spirit of Fragonard's master François Boucher. Boucher's training can be seen in the ornamental flourishes of flowers and trees. But Fragonard's own skill may be seen in the brilliant composition. Blindman's bluff can be seen as a metaphor for courtship, while the rocking of the see-saw would clearly be a metaphor for the act of lovemaking itself."
-

This is meant to represent what Fragonard loved; courtship.

E perché quel suo sorriso
possa ritornare ancora
splendi sole domattina
come non hai fatto ancora...
abbracciamoci più forte
perché lei vuole l'amore
Poi corriamo per le strade
e mettiamoci a ballare
perché lei vuole la gioia
perché lei odia il rancore
poi coi secchi di vernice
coloriamo tutti i muri
case, vicoli e palazzi
perché lei ama i colori🎶🎶

- - "This painting is one of the most famous by Rubens in the Collection. The title 'Le Chapeau de Paille' (meaning The Straw Hat) was first used in the 18th century. The portrait is probably of Susanna Lunden, born Susanna Fourment, third daughter of Daniel Fourment, an Antwerp tapestry and silk merchant. Her younger sister Helena became Rubens's second wife in 1630. Rubens enlarged the painting as the work proceeded, adding a third strip of wood on the right and then enlarging the picture at the base. The additions created a greater expanse of sky, and Rubens added clouds to the right that contrast with the clearer sky to the left, from which the light falls across the body and hands."

From The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō in the Hōeidō edition (1833–1834), a series of ukiyo-e woodcut prints created by Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese: 歌川 広重; 1797-1858), after his first travel along the Tōkaidō in 1832.

The Tōkaidō, linking the shōgun's capital, Edo, to the imperial one, Kyōto, was the main travel and transport artery of old Japan.

Hiroshige was considered the last great master of the ukiyo-e tradition. The subjects of his work were atypical of the genre, whose typical focus was on beautiful women, popular actors, and other scenes of the urban pleasure districts of Japan's Edo period (1603–1868). Even though the Hōeidō edition is by far the best known, The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō was such a popular subject that it led Hiroshige to create some 30 different series of woodcut prints on it, all very different one from the other.

The Hōeidō edition of the Tōkaidō is Hiroshige's best known work, and the best sold ever ukiyo-e Japanese prints. Coming just after Hokusai's Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series, it established this new major theme of ukiyo-e, the landscape print, or fūkei-ga, with a special focus on "famous views" (meisho). These landscape prints took full advantage of the new possibilities offered by the Western representation of perspective, that Japanese artists had by now fully assimilated. Hiroshige's series met with full success, not only in Japan, but later in Western countries.

Cat's Nightmare (1907)
Artist: Louis Wain
Medium: Lithograph
- "His cat illustrations certainly tapped into something that resonated well with the people of the time. Often playfully poking fun at Edwardian trends – his cats could play golf, be mothers, drink tea, smoke cigarettes and go to the opera. They weren’t social satires per se but they certainly had fun in highlighting the topical trends of the time. Wain’s illustrations have a sardonic sense of humour and the human-like expressions of his creatures continue to amuse and entertain."
- "Despite the happiness seen throughout his work, the tale of Wain’s interest in cats is sadly a tragic one. In 1883 Wain married Emily Richardson. Not long after the couple wed, Emily became unwell. Over the course of her prolonged illness, the illustrator sketched their cat as a way to keep her spirits up. She must have been delighted when, in the Autumn of 1886, she saw their cat depicted in Kari’s book. There must have been even more reason for joy when a few months later Wain was commissioned again by The Illustrated London News to draw more illustrations based on their cat. His work, ‘A Kitten’s Christmas Party’ was hugely popular and a great success. It set Wain on the road to artistic and commercial greatness but sadly he was unable to enjoy this accomplishment as a few months later Emily passed away. "

Often playfully poking fun at Edwardian trends – his cats could play golf, be mothers, drink tea, smoke cigarettes and go to the opera. They weren’t social satires per se but they certainly had fun in highlighting the topical trends of the time. Wain’s illustrations have a sardonic sense of humour and the human-like expressions of his creatures continue to amuse and entertain." - "Despite the happiness seen throughout his work, the tale of Wain’s interest in cats is sadly a tragic one. In 1883 Wain married Emily Richardson. Not long after the couple wed, Emily became unwell. Over the course of her prolonged illness, the illustrator sketched their cat as a way to keep her spirits up. She must have been delighted when, in the Autumn of 1886, she saw their cat depicted in Kari’s book. There must have been even more reason for joy when a few months later Wain was commissioned again by The Illustrated London News to draw more illustrations based on their cat. His work, ‘A Kitten’s Christmas Party’ was hugely popular and a great success. It set Wain on the road to artistic and commercial greatness but sadly he was unable to enjoy this accomplishment as a few months later Emily passed away. " - Linked Sources: https://illustrationchronicles.com/Cute-Cats-and-Psychedelia-The-Tragic-Life-of-Louis-Wain #art  #arthistory  #artist  #louiswain  #cat  #catsnightmare  #lithograph  #arthistorynerd  #historyart  #history  #owl  #nightmare

Vi capita mai di vivere la bellezza? al sottoscritto si. 
Dopo un paio d'anni torno a Palazzolo Acreide. Certamente la prima volta era diverso (o meglio un contesto diverso): era festa.
Luci ovunque, bandiere, drappi e tanta ma tanta gente riversa per le strade, beh la vigilia di San Paolo cosa mi aspettavo.
Ora la città è quasi muta, la luce dorata, le strade vuote, il silenzio ed io.
Solo pochi attimi dinanzi a quell'artificiosa  pietra bianca lambita dal sole ed è subito magia. Non so descrive a pieno la bellezza del momento e non so neanche se voglia veramente farlo...
