Treasure: 👉 Ugolino and His Sons - 1867
Artist: 🇫🇷 Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux 
Where:📍#NewYork - Metropolitan Museum of Art

Family: 🖼 @tesori_italiani | @archaeology_treasures 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 “Ugolino and His Sons” is a beautiful sculpture made by French artist Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux in 1865-67 and housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
The subject of this intensely Romantic work is derived from canto XXXIII of Dante's Inferno, which describes how the Pisan traitor Count Ugolino della Gherardesca, his sons, and his grandsons were imprisoned in 1288 and died of starvation. Carpeaux's visionary statue, executed in 1865–67, reflects the artist's passionate reverence for Michelangelo, specifically for The Last Judgment (1536–41) in the Sistine Chapel of the Vatican, Rome, as well as his own painstaking concern with anatomical realism. 🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹🔸🔹 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀🏛 Share our Wonderful Heritage 🏛

  • Keith Haring, 1958 - 1990

La sua breve vita la vedo come un falò nel mare: non puoi che rimanere interdetto e affascinato da un evento così peculiare, ma la vastità dell’oceano che lo circonda, che lo rende unico, lo ucciderà inevitabilmente. Keith Haring arriva a New York che ha appena vent’anni e viene risucchiato da una città estrema, che gli permette di uscire dal pozzo della vergogna dell’omosessualità solo per immergersi in quello della sperimentazione erotica più audace e rischiosa. Vive giorno e notte nascondendosi sotto terra, scivolando tra graffitari e senzatetto, con pennarelli e gessetti a disegnare piccoli uomini, cani e ufo sui muri della metropolitana. 
È la più semplice rappresentazione della vita che puoi pensare: sono come le pitture rupestri di Lascaux, solo che la grotta è New York e gli uomini raffigurati ballano, si abbracciano, amano, interagiscono, raccontano il mondo naïf e violento che ha creato e ucciso Haring stesso.
Raggiunti i trentuno anni infatti, muore a causa del dilagante aids. 
Sono undici anni in cui però vive seguendo al massimo i suoi ideali, di accessibilità dell’arte, di aiuti umanitari, di attivismo politico e sociale, di una filantropia concreta che probabilmente, per lui, ha significato più della sua arte stessa. .

  • Monad Abyssum ( III ) – Memento Mori: ‘When the tedious hours have passed, drop by drop in sleep upon the heart, falls the laborious memory of pain. From sin's polluting stain reject her life and give her to the art of adversity.’ This experimental abstract portrait depicts the pivotal point of my regressive journey of fully embracing the metal music scene after thoroughly studying the genre for a considerable few years. All it took was just two obscure monolithic bleak records; ‘As the Flower Withers’ and personally for me the most influential record, ‘Turn Loose the Swans’ by My Dying Bride (@mydyingbride_official, @aaron_stainthorpe, @lena_abe). Revisiting these records was just nostalgically enthralling and became a solemn inspiration for this particular piece. It reminded me of the indigenous influence that music had played on me through its obscure ideologies, dissonant textures and nihilism of morose conceptions that shaped my perspective and evolved my preferences to define an incredible life stream of knowledge exalted.

Hence, this artwork represents a profound catharsis and serves as a remembrance to the oppressive audial craft of early My Dying Bride records. Which predominantly, from an evocative perspective were utterly flawless, and displayed a visceral progression of bleak resonance that is confined in an unsurmountable weight of darkness that was not only compelling but also figuratively curative. Conceptually, the art depiction was pretty much influenced by the lyrical excerpts from the records; amalgamated into a consolidated scripture that ethos the somber atmosphere and purveys the metaphorical perspective on the transcending cessation of life. The narrative behind the depiction was all about relatively conjoining the records by preserving the surrealistic and somber schematics abstracted.

  • Henri Beau - Woman with a Parasol (c. 1897) - Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, Canada
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Painted by the French-Canadian Impressionist artist Louis-Henri Beau (1863-1949).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Beau had his first showings in the 1890s and in 1900 won third prize for painting at the Universal Exhibition.

Beau appeared regularly in exhibitions in Europe and America. In Canada the Salon du printemps of the Art Association and the Royal Canadian Academy frequently hung his works. He was official painter of the Public Archives of Canada 1915-38. An active member of several French art societies, he was made an officer of the French Academy.

With his brother Paul, a fine-arts ironworker, Beau left a definite mark on Canadian art, heralding the coming young generation of painters. Yet, with his French academy training and French tastes, he was one of the last representatives of a dying age." (The Canadian Encyclopedia, thecanadianencyclopedia.ca)
