Amedeo Clemente Modigliani (July 12, 1884 – January 24, 1920) was an Italian artist of Jewish heritage, practicing both painting and sculpture, who pursued his career for the most part in France. Modigliani was born in Livorno (historically referred to in English as Leghorn), in Northwestern Italy and began his artistic studies in Italy before moving to Paris in 1906.

Influenced by the artists in his circle of friends and associates, by a range of genres and art movements, and by primitive art, Modigliani’s oeuvre was nonetheless unique and idiosyncratic

Orazio Gentileschi (Lomi ) importante esponente del Caravaggismoin Italia ed in Europa, nasce a Pisa il 9 luglio del 1563; il padre Giovanni Battista Lomi è un orefice fiorentino.

Trascorre l’infanzia a Firenze e probabilmente compie qui anche la sua prima formazione artistica come allievo del fratellastro Aurelio Lomi, esponente del Manieirismo fiorentino.

Trasferitosi a Roma, ancora adolescente, dopo la morte del padre, viene ospitato dallo zio materno, capitano delle guardie a Castel Sant’Angelo da cui Orazio adotterà il cognome Gentileschi.

Non ci resta alcuna documentazione sul suo tirocinio romano, ma sicuramente prosegue la sua carriera come pittore, ma nel 1588-89, risulta impegnato a Roma con il fratello Aurelio ed altri artisti di notevole livello, nella decorazione della Biblioteca Sistina in Vaticano.

El Profeta, de Yibrán Jalil Yibrán

El Amor
El amor no da nada sino sí mismo y no toma nada sino de sí mismo.
El amor no posee, tampoco es poseído;
Porque el amor basta al amor.
Cuando tienes el amor no debes decir que «Dios está en mi corazón» sino mejor, «yo estoy en el corazón de Dios».

Y no pienses que puedes dirigir el rumbo del amor, porque el amor, si te cree digno, dirige tu rumbo.
El amor no tiene ningún deseo sino realizarse.
Pero si amas y tienes que tener deseos, que estos sean tus deseos:
Derretirse y ser como un arroyo corriente que le canta su melodía a la noche.
Saber el dolor de demasiada ternura.
Ser herido por su propio entendimiento del amor;
Y sangrar de buena gana y alegremente.
Despertar al alba con un corazón alado y dar las gracias por otro día de amar;
Descansar al mediodía y meditar sobre el éxtasis del amor;
Volver a casa por la tarde con agradecimiento;
Y entonces dormir con un rezo para el amado en tu corazón y una canción de alabanza en los labios.

Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born in Limoges, Haute-Vienne, France, the child of a working-class family. As a boy, he worked in a porcelain factory where his drawing talents led to his being chosen to paint designs on fine china. He also painted hangings for overseas missionaries and decorations on fans before he enrolled in art school.During those early years, he often visited the Louvre to study the French master painters.

In 1862, he began studying art under Charles Gleyre in Paris. There he met Alfred Sisley, Frédéric Bazille, and Claude Monet.[4] At times during the 1860s, he did not have enough money to buy paint. Although Renoir first started exhibiting paintings at the Paris Salon in 1864, recognition did not come for another ten years, due, in part, to the turmoil of the Franco-Prussian War.
During the Paris Commune in 1871, while Renoir painted on the banks of the Seine River, some Communards thought he was a spy, and were about to throw him into the river when a leader of the Commune, Raoul Rigault, recognized Renoir as the man who had protected him on an earlier occasion.
In 1874, a ten-year friendship with Jules Le Cœur and his family ended, and Renoir lost not only the valuable support gained by the association, but also a generous welcome to stay on their property near Fontainebleau and its scenic forest. This loss of a favorite painting location resulted in a distinct change of subjects.
