Duvet, political satire and merlot. Lovely Wednesday evening #lonelytimes #romanticism
Eugène Delacroix was born on this day in 1798. A leading figure in French Romanticism, the painter was described by his friend Charles Baudelaire as being "passionately in love with passion, but coldly determined to express passion as clearly as possible”. With its clear articulation of intense sadness and apprehension, Delacroix’s early work Jeune Orpheline au Cimetière (Orphan Girl at the Cemetery), 1823 – believed to be a study for his major work The Massacre at Chios – is an example of Delacroix’s style at its finest. @museelouvre #onthisday #bornthisday #delacroix #eugenedelacroix #romanticism #frenchromanticism #romanticpainting #baudelaire

Mi sei apparsa una volta tu, quale magnifica visione, In mezzo a innumerevoli, inerti persone, – Fuggevoli sono giovinezza, amore e piacere, E fama, e sogni, ma tu più fuggevole ancora sei. E dolce fu il mio sogno pur se per un attimo solo! – Però, gravato da involontaria angoscia, Adesso vado in giro solo e ti aspetto, visione, E chiaro davanti a me aleggia un sogno luminoso. "Roses" (1856) - Johan Jensen. #art

"I'm a hopeless romantic. I still want to be swept off my feet. I grew up reading fairytales. I also grew up reading adventure books and building dams with rocks, in creeks. I wanted to stay up at night to see the stars.Talking and laughing by the fire. Watching the fireflies, while feeling the butterflies in my tummy... I still want to be swept off my feet. I'm the one looking for romanticism in a world of neorealism." #girlquotes #romanticism #diary #thoughts #quotes #butterflies #fireflies #fairytales

Happy Birthday to Eugene Delacroix, who was born on April 26th, 1798, in Charenton-Saint-Maurice, Île-de-France, France! Delacroix was regarded as the leader of the Romantic school of art, with one of his most notable works, Liberty Leading the People, being regarded as one of the more recognized and important works created around the 1840 French Revolution. Delacroix is an intriguing artist, in that he was able to portray violence and death in combination with sensuality and passion, as Greece on the Ruins of Missolonghi, 1826, clearly depicts. Delacroix's trip to Spain and North Africa in 1832 proved to be fruitful for his career, where he executed many works depicting many men and women in their traditional attire, which he viewed similar to that of Greece, a culture he had most admiration for. Of his observation he has stated "The Greeks and Romans are here at my door, in the Arabs who wrap themselves in a white blanket and look like Cato or Brutus…" A skilled lithographer, Delacroix would also illustrate, as well as depict, many works by Shakespeare and Wolfgang von Goethe.

A simple overview of the great artist himself! . . . . Gustave Dore was a prolific engraver, artist, illustrator, and sculptor, working primarily as a wood and steel engraver. He produced over 100,000 sketches in his lifetime, and lived to be 50 years old, averaging 6 sketches per day for each day he lived. By the time he died he had also earned over $2 million, living a life of affluence. Even though he was an untrained, self-taught artist, who never used a live model, and who could not sketch from nature, his work is considered some of the most important in the entire engraving art world. #romanticism #theholybible #religiouspaintings #art #engravings #gustavedoré #illustrations

Are there pitfalls to excessive emotionalism? When do emotions switch track from intuitive guides to unregulated emo-child-teens, maybe even unconsciously derailing us, or worse, thieves suddenly steering us off track, away from our heart-of-hearts, aspirations, close relationships--in truth, our souls? I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I'm teaching The Sorrows of Young Werther, which represents the Sturm and Drang (brief) movement, and can be viewed as a warning against extreme emotionalism or Romantic excess. A friend of mine just shared someone close to her committed suicide. My heart breaks for her. In no way do I equate mental illness with emotionalism, but in my experience, they share a seat on the therapists couch. While I contract at the terms "regulated" or "checked" to describe our feelings--I am a sacred rebel after all--, I know and feel the value in working WITH feelings, rather than letting them WORK you. I've been in the swap. Injury, loss, and heartbreak took me there. Depression kept me there. We all have our list of what might draw...no, drag us there. But we...YOU are not alone. We have resources if we look. Some take is deep inside, where it's scary to BE WITH yourself so much, but the practice, the lineage is a net that can hold us: meditation, yoga, writing, therapy. Some help us step outside that cocoon, and feel ourselves in our bodies, connecting with others and nature: yoga, dance, hiking/climbing/surfing/cycling, family, church, circles of women, men's groups, art appreciation and creation, activism, etc. I doubted this for so long, but we truly are supported if we open to receive that support. Rather than "regulating" or "checking" emotions (how stifling and probably ineffective because no matter what, they'll keep showing up!), we can allow and lovingly steer them by cultivating our inner practices--what helps us to feel safe in self-intimacy--and connecting with the resources within our community: nature and each other. This is perhaps one way; may we all find our way. 💜 . . . . #yoga #proseandposes #yogaandwriting #selfintimacy #selfexpressionmuse #romanticism #werther #emotionalism #lifehacks #mentalhealthawareness
Eugène Delacroix (26 April 1798 – 13 August 1863) was a French Romantic artist regarded from the outset of his career as the leader of the French Romantic school. In 1832, Delacroix traveled to Spain and North Africa, as part of a diplomatic mission to Morocco shortly after the French conquered Algeria. He went not primarily to study art, but to escape from the civilization of Paris, in hopes of seeing a more “primitive” culture. He eventually produced over 100 paintings and drawings of scenes from or based on the life of the people of North Africa, and added a new and personal chapter to the interest in Orientalism. Delacroix was entranced by the people and the costumes, and the trip would inform the subject matter of a great many of his future paintings. He believed that the North Africans, in their attire and their attitudes, provided a visual equivalent to the people of Classical Rome and Greece. “Fanatics of Tangier,” 1838, Minneapolis Institute of Art. #EugèneDelacroix #Delacroix #Orientalism #Romanticism #Paris #Morocco #Painting #France #MinneapolisInstituteofArt #artwork #masterpiece #storiadelarte #arthistory
Relendo Werther, agora com um pouco mais de maturidade existencial. E acabei publicando um textinho sobre o livro no FAÇA OU MORRA (meu blog - link na bio) 📚 Visitem, comentem, questionem, entendam por que um livro mudou toda a forma com que as pessoas se viam e viam o mundo!

Walking diaries #1 (2/2): #notesonwalking Mental rabbit holes during a recent walk: loose #history of encountering and aestheticizing the #sublime (in Western art) – Back in 1961, art critic Robert Rosenblum traced the sublime aesthetic tradition from its 18th and 19th century romantic origins (Turner, Friedrich) to what was then its latest manifestation: abstract expressionism and the American avant-garde (Still, Rothko, Pollock, Newman). These painters stripped away all extraneous ideas of form and representation, and like the hubble telescope or the most powerful atomic microscope, they focused on a kind of core interior or the outermost unreachable exteriors, pushing beyond unfamiliar brinks and topographies. Rosenblum called this new movement “The Abstract Sublime”, poetically positing that with each new aesthetic iteration of the sublime, it's about breaking down all the barriers and mediations between you and the void, until “we ourselves are the monk before the sea” • #current #mood In my own work recently, I’ve been thinking about what the contemporary aesthetic sublime is, and inevitably it has everything to do with thresholds and seeing the “unseen”. My search is one of many and part of an eternal one; since humans started walking upright and looking up at the sky, they have always yearned for a kind of "pure experiential heroin", singular experiences that can assuage life’s worst disappointments and make it worth living. Walking is the most democratic way to meet with these unexpected distilled moments, and when you do the jolt of pleasure is shocking and overwhelming. #walking #diary #westside #piers #nyc #newyork #newyorkcity #hudson #river #water #sky #instagood #manhattan #edge #boundary #pleasure #wandering #wanderlust #abstraction #darkness #romanticism #photo #essay #writing
