‘The Bathers’, by Paul Cézanne

From Paul Cézanne [19 January 1839 – 22 October 1906], The Bathers, 1899/1904

Paul Cézanne – The Bathers, 1899/1904
The Art Institute of Chicago

Through his studies of groups of bathers outdoors, Paul Cézanne reconceived a classical subject in a modern, pictorial idiom. Though clearly related, The Bathers is not a study for either of the monumental canvases of bather subjects that the artist left unfinished at his death; rather, it is an independent, exploratory work painted with a more spritely touch. For all its compositional complexity, it retains the lightness of a watercolor, with thin parallel strokes and dashes and areas of white-primed canvas showing through the paint.

‘En el puerto’, de Albert Gleizes

Albert Gleizes – ‘En el puerto’, 1917 | Museo Thyssen, Madrid


“En el puerto” (1917) de Albert Gleizes [París, 8 Diciembre 1881 – Aviñón, 23 Junio 1953] es una superposición de recuerdos y fragmentos de los puertos de Nueva York y Barcelona, donde el artista vivió durante la Primera Guerra Mundial para no ser movilizado. La particular retícula del urbanismo de Barcelona y los arcos ojivales de Santa María del Mar, junto con los rascacielos de la Gran Manzana o los cables del puente de Brooklin, se mezclan en esta interpretación cubista de las dos ciudades. Pero Gleizes utiliza también la esquematización vanguardista para representar el mar que las une, con formas onduladas que recuerdan al movimiento de las olas y diminutas piedrecitas para sugerir la arena de las playas por donde solía pasear.

‘The Arts, Paradise Choir, and The Embrace, detail of Beethoven Frieze’, de Gustav Klimt

In 1902, Gustav Klimt [July 14 1862 – February 6 1918] painted the Beethoven Frieze for the 14th Vienna Secessionist exhibition, which was intended to be a celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven the composer and featured a monumental polychrome sculpture by Max Klinger. Meant for the exhibition only, the frieze was painted directly on the walls with light materials. After the exhibition the painting was preserved, although it did not go on display again until 1986. The Beethoven Frieze is now on permanent display in the Vienna Secession hall (Austria). Via.
