I am very impressed that we are in such “sintonia”. I have been fascinated by this Passions series since two weeks ago – though with a quite poorer experience – the Gulbenkian library, where I accidentely found the catalogue of that show.
I was quite shocked the same way you were, especially due to an historian of art gaze, i guess, the conscience of the thousands of religious works we saw in museums, in churches, iconographies and iconologies, and that these narratives Viola offers are both visually perfect and tradition sharpened. I am studying contemporary art and I find it so hard to be moved by it both intelectually and aesthetically and with Viola it does happen. I hope to get to see it soon!
Catherine´s room is magnificent. I had showed it to one good friend of mine also 2 weeks ago, when we were bored to death with sociology theory. If you find out any site where the polyptic is complete (side by side) with quality, do let me know – but I am affraid there isn´t.
All the best and long live good art!
Besides having one of my favorite names [after the Kurt Schwitters poem] I must say by finding your blog by sheer coincidence I am very happy to have read your blog and will add it to my daily inspirational routine.
I am a product designer, mostly doing furniture, and interior architecture … I wish you all the best in your future.
PS: I thought being danish you might like this (I found it the other day):
Thank you for your nice comment!
I have to admit I don’t know the Kurt Schwitters poem – perhaps you could post it?
I wish you all the best too!
ps. The link doesn’t work – and now I’m very curious!
I came across your site by chance while doing research on Henry Fuseli – you had posted a lovely self-portrait of a young Henry Fuseli from the V&A. I am actually doing some research on my relative Moses Haughton (my father’s mother was a Haughton). Haughton assisted Fuseli and did most of his etching and prints. In the family research I’ve done I have found that Haughton lived at Somerset House for a time (at that time it was bit what it is now I gather and apartments were rented out). Haughton also lived with the Fuseli’s for a time. Another funny link to your site – I grew up in Powell River, British Columbia, Canada…a few miles away from a lovely little town called Lund. Lund is the very last (or first) point on the road that runs all the way down to the tip of South America. So – there is a little history for you and some rather quirky links.
It sounds very interesting with your ancestor and him working with Fuseli. I wrote my dissertation on Fuseli’s drawings, but etchings and other prints have had my interest for many years – etching is closely related to drawing and the art of changing a drawing or even a painting into tiny lines and hatchings takes a gifted craftsman. If you have any question I’d be delighted to try to answer!
I have more links for you – my granny lives in a village called Lund, not the Swedish one, but a Danish one. And during world war II this little place was the starting point for many of the Jews fleeing from Denmark to Sweden – the link to freedom so to speak!
Best wishes to you too – wonderful to have readers on another continent!
I happened across your page while doing a search for high resolution Rothko images. I was also just at MoMA, so I recognized immediately that your red photo with vertical lines is actually Barnett Newman’s Vir Heroicus Sublimis. Poor Barnett Newman gets mistaken for Rothko all the time.
Anyways – just a heads up 🙂 Thanks for sharing the photos.
Thank you very much – I hadn’t realised it was by Newman. I just corrected the link.
