  • Being a revolutionary in the Middle Ages was not easy. This artist found a way.⁣ ⁣ Ambrogio Lorenzetti. Born around 1285 in Siena and died in his homeland in ... 1348 (yes, during the first year of the Black Death - the Plague).⁣ ⁣ Ambrogio mainly worked in Siena and Florence and of course the main institution he had to paint for was the Catholic church or else, the government. Most of the requests at the time were images of Virgin Mary, Jesus, saints, Passion of Christ or allegorical images to illustrate virtues and sins.⁣ ⁣ The iconography was very well defined by the church so... apparently there was no freedom for the artist to improvise. And yet.... if you look at Ambrogio's work you'll see a breathtaking freedom. He had the capability to improvise and search for new means of expression.⁣ ⁣ This Virgin Mary and the child dates back to 1335 ca. and is preserved in the Louvre, in Paris.⁣ ⁣ The golden background, a typical element of medieval painting, denotes the light of God. And now look at Mary and her boy. Her monumental figure is holding firmly the moving baby who does not want to sit still. Her eyes are full of tenderness. ⁣ ⁣ Little Jesus is holding an apple in his hand and he's doing exactly what every human child would do: he puts it into his mouth to taste. Well, the apple is there to remind us about the original sin. Therefore by eating it Jesus tells use several things:⁣ he knows what his purpose on the Earth is and is the allusion to his future sacrifice.⁣ ⁣ And now look at the ear of the Virgin. She is wearing an earring with a cross - her knowledge about her son's purpose.⁣ ⁣ Isn't it beautiful? ⁣ ⁣ #tatjanagorina_art #painting #florenceart #ambrogiolorenzetti #medievalart #medievalpainting #siena #sienaart #follow #discover #learnart #arttravel #artpolgrim #yourflorenceguide #arthistory #artinsight #insights #florencegram #ig_italy #ig_siena #ig_art

  • Quando comincia il longhiano "Rinascimento umbratile" e dove, e su quali basi teoriche? Tutte domande a cui è difficile dare una risposta, perché il fenomeno che Longhi e poi Zeri cercarono di circoscrivere appartiene più a un sentire, a una sensibilità, che a qualcosa di stilisticamente coordinato (come lo fu il Manierismo il secolo successivo). Abbiamo già visto ieri l' esempio di Jacopo della Quercia, che pure a suo modo e un umanista, e che però è fortemente radicato in una tradizione medievale. Ecco Siena è un luogo dove la Rinascenza viene coltivata sui generis e spesso presenta caratteri di assoluta resistenza all'Umanesimo. È il caso di un singolare e dotatissimo pittore senese, Giovanni di Paolo, uno dei pochi pittori radicalmente religiosi e visionari del secolo. Se il Sassetta, Domenico di Bartolo, lo stesso Jacopo della Quercia, sono inquiete figure di transizione tra grande tradizione trecentesca locale e nuoba cultura fiorentina, Giovanni è un radicale e consapevole anti moderno. Argan e Brandi lo descrivono come lirico assoluto, in realtà sarebbe più corretto dire che il senese concepisce espressivamente la pittura come invocazione e preghiera. Non è un incolto e nemmeno un reazionario. Conosce bene non solo Lorenzetti e Gentile da Fabriano, ma anche Ghiberti e Donatello, ma tutti li piega ai suoi propositi espressionistici. La pseudoprospettiva che usa gli serve per creare uno spazio vuoto e geologicamente fantastico, brullo, in cui si muovono figurette nervose intagliate dalla linea, deformate. Non deve stupire però che il linearismo aspro di Giovanni possa trasformarsi anche in aristocratico lirismo, visto che siamo sempre su un piano di ascesi. Una visione comunque eretica e solitaria #giovannidipaolo #ambrogiolorenzetti #siena #florence #ghiberti #donatello #gentiledafabriano #rinascimentoumbratile #renaissance #lategothic #longhi

  • Come già detto, a cavallo del primo ' 400 Siena è la città del ritardo. Se intendiamo la modernità con Firenze, vuole essere in ritardo. Siena ha una sua incredibile tradizione trecentesca e i suoi artisti di punta decidono di andare alla modernità partendo da quella. Tra questi la figura di un vero e proprio gigante, uno dei più grandi scultori del XV secolo, Jacopo della Quercia. Jacopo è una figura singolare in tutto: prima di tutto è misteriosa la sua formazione, visto che il padre è uno scultore abbastanza mediocre, mentre fin dalla sua prima opera documentata, la Madonna della Melagrana di Ferrara, il giovane Jacopo mostra una conoscenza perfetta non solo dei concittadini Giovanni Pisano e Ambrogio Lorenzetti, ma anche della plastica borgognona di Claus Sluter. Poi viene un altro, celeberrimo capolavoro, la tomba di Ilaria del Carretto e da quel momento, in tutte le opere dello scultore senese, la stessa, stucchevole domanda: gotico o Rinascimento? Questo perché alla lista delle sue fonti Jacopo sembra aggiungere Ghiberti e Donatello, però ignorandone completamente la problematica spaziale. Raramente nella storia della scultura si trova una figura più inclassificabile. La lista delle sue fonti è lunghissima: Giovanni Pisano, Sluter, Donatello, Ghiberti, però sembra farli interagire per il gusto di contraddirsi, come se cercasse non una sintesi, ma una sorta di dinamica continua tra classicità e spiritualità cristiana (gotica). Di sicuro il suo dramma non si svolge nello spazio, come per i fiorentini, ma è tutto umano e le sue figure si caricano di energia ora plastica, ora lineare #jacopodellaquercia #donatello #ghiberti #sluter #giovannipisano #ambrogiolorenzetti #siena #florence #burgundy #lategothic #sculpture #renaissance

  • Documentary genre comprises the majority of activist photography. In this post i want to propose two pictures from my archive, both shot in Italy. Looking at those pictures I think they can be conceptually linked to Ambrogio Lorenzetti's series Bad And Good Government. Art is not useless and documentary photography is, in my personal view, a way to let emerge and shape the culture that surround us. History of art give us good example to take away the thesis that a work of art end in itself, demonstrating that a work of art can find its functional dimention in history and facts. Documenting can be both a mirror or a window. I do not cover stories unless I feel very connected to it. It is always personal to me. I am not interested in focusing on memory of identity as is the conceit of fine art documentary. I studied fine art all my life and at one point I felt the need to merge and reframe my knowledge into social activism, looking for a solution. I am focusing on contributing to educate people: visual resistance against the mainstream global imaginery. What i see make me angry and i want to mantain this anger and channeling it. Without this passion my job is over.

  • "Потому что все сиенцы говорят, как Бернардино, я имею ввиду с тем же акцентом, словно обращаются к своим "буси-мои-буси", "сяси-мои-масяси", "жены-мои-молодожены" или "кумушки-мои-умушки"- и все так сладко, тихим голосом и присущей только сиенцам мягкостью. А если почесаться им надо, то все культурно и чистенько, нос высморкаться, то с некоторым стеснением, себя слегка похвалить, то скромно. С той скромностью, чистотой и стеснением, с которыми сиенские художники живописали своих младенцев, святых и ангелов. Тончайшей кистью выписывали они ручки, носики, щёчки, ротики, волосики, локотки, ножки, и пальчики, а крылья, крылышки и подкрылышки ангелов кажутся серебристыми и прозрачными крыльями мухи, и облака, на которых восседают мадонны, похожи на такие маленькие, малюсенькие вздохи,... а далёкие горы,.. похожи на кусочки насыпанной земли, а небеса- на дольки неба, поля- на огородишки. И в этом огромном мире людей любезных, таких прямо порядрчных-порядрчных, с бледными ручками, с розовыми носиками, голубыми глазками, деревцами зелёными, розовыми реками, серебристыми оливковыми рощами, дорогами белыми и лазурными- во всем этом ощущение дома, воздух Сиены. Достаточно одного сиенского художника, чтобы ты смог дышать этим воздухом." 📕📒📑Курцио Малапарте- "Проклятые Тосканцы" На фото, Амброджио Лоренцетти, что бы вздохнуть сиенского воздуха. #сиенаЛукавая

  • Day 14 - Clock⏳ ННЦ «Институт метрологии» vs. Умеренность (Амброджо Лоренцетти) Лоренцетти создал целую серию фресок под общим названием «Аллегория и эффекты хорошего и плохого правительства». Наша Умеренность - героиня фрески «Аллегория хорошего правительства» восседает ещё с 5 женщинами (Мир, Сила духа, Предусмотрительность, Великодушие и Справедливость) вокруг мужчины, воплощающего Совет Сиены. Так как часы, по моей предусмотрительности и удаче, уже мелькали на моих картинках, я решила пригласить героиню и гостей города сверить свои часы с самыми точными в Украине, на которые равняется вся страна. Кстати, градусник, который я уже показывала вам, был изготовлен именно в этом институте. #inktober #inktober2018 #clock #AllegoryoftheGoodGovernment #temperantia #ambrogiolorenzetti #Харьков #Kharkiv #институтметрологии

  • Simone Martini, Saint Catherine of Alexandria (detail) c.1320-25. Egg tempera on gold leaf on poplar wood. 82.2 x 44.5 cm. National Gallery of Canada. Simone Martini (1280/85, Siena, d. 1344, Avignon). Though scarcely any news do we have relating to his life before 1315, art  historians conveniently are of a mind to suggest that he could have been one of Duccio’s alumni.  A great part of his working life was spent in Tuscany, though around 1314 he visited Avignon and would stay there until his untimely death. Whatever his circumstances what is certain is that Duccio, Ambrogio Lorenzetti and himself were thought to be the greatest painters of the late XIIIth century and the first quarter of the next. This work was (before it was dispersed) part of the left panel of an altarpiece in which (presumably) Saint Catherine was looking towards the Madonna and Holy Infant in the main central panel. She was presented with her usual attributes of torture: the wheel to which she was bound tightly which, in the painting, as a miracle, has just been reduced to a brooch; she also holds the pommel of a sword in one hand and a palm branch –symbol of her martyrdom and spiritual victory– in the other. His innovative style was already manifested in his Maestà of Siena: a new tri-dimensional space was in the offing. Yet, he development of the Gothic style was to contemplate new manners in the way Martini painted his figures; a superb and delicate finesse, along with an observation of what grandeur and courtly forms really meant brought him to be a sort of court artist with a very keen eye on costume and fashion of his time.

  • ~ #3 The Freeing of Myra from Famine~ Ambrogio tells us a story of the ancient Greek town of Myra, which is near Antalya in modern Turkey. The town lost all its crops and had a famine in AD 311-312. Saint Nicholas overheard that the ships transporting wheat to Alexandria had anchored in the nearby harbor. He went to that harbor and begged sailors to give him a bit of grain from each ship to save the people of Myra. The sailors told him that they were contracted to deliver a very precise quantity of wheat and thus could not remove any. Saint Nicholas replied: "Do this, and I promise, in the truth of God, that it shall not be lessened or diminished when you get to your destination." And so the sailors took a measure from each ship, gave it to Saint Nicholas and left for Alexandria. When the wheat was unloaded and weighed everyone was astonished to see that every last grain was accounted for! Everyone praised God and Saint Nicholas and Myra was saved from famine.

  • ~ #2 The Saint’s Gift of Gold to a Destitute Family~ Today we will look at the upper right panel of Ambrogio Lorenzetti's Stories of Saint Nicholas at the Uffizi. This story is about a man in Myra who lost all his money and could not support his three daughters. The story goes that the family misfortune forced all three girls into prostitution... This is when our super hero Saint Nicholas comes to rescue and secretly provides a dowry for each of the sisters. Lorenzetti shows us both the secret donation and the grateful reaction of the family. Some stories say that St Nicholas (future Santa Claus) threw money into the girls' stockings, hung up to dry. Now you know where the custom of hanging up stockings at Christmas comes from ;)

  • In the next three days, we will talk about Saint Nicholas, one of the most popular saints of the Christian church and the "prototype" for Santa Claus. He is praised for his victories against demons and his capacity to resurrect dismembered bodies. Born in 271 AD in Patara, which is now in modern Turkey, he was incredibly pious from birth. As mentioned in the Golden Legend, "while the infant (Saint Nicholas) was being bathed on the first day of his life, he stood straight up in the bath. And from then on, he took the breast only once on Wednesdays and Fridays." Tomorrow we will look at a beautiful painting by Sienese master Ambrogio Lorenzetti and his stories of St Nicholas from the late 1320s.

  • Quello che si vede è un particolare dell'Allegoria del Buon Governo, una serie di affreschi realizzati da Ambrogio Lorenzetti tra 1338-1339 nel Palazzo Pubblico di Siena. È interessante notare come dal Trecento ad oggi la domanda su come si possa governare saggiamente una città o uno Stato sia ancora una questione irrisolta. In questo ciclo di affreschi Siena celebra la sua potenza: all'apice del successo politico, militare e sociale, la città cerca di spiegare a tutti il segreto della sua forza. E per spiegarlo utilizza il principale mezzo di comunicazione dell'epoca, la pittura. La bellezza è quindi il mezzo che si sceglie per comunicare il giusto. Per i senesi non è importante tanto la norma o legge astratta quanto la bellezza e gli effetti del Buon Governo contrapposti al Mal Governo, rappresentato da una terribile scena infernale. #ambrogiolorenzetti #palazzopubblicosiena #allegoriadelbuongoverno

  • Visita al Museo Civico e Diocesano di Montalcino. Ottima rappresentazione dell'arte senese tra XIV e XVIII secolo. Tra le opere più interessanti troviamo tavole tardo trecentesche di Bartolo di Fredi e Ambrogio Lorenzetti ma anche sculture lignee di Francesco di Valdambrino. Interessantissime le opere del quattrocento senese del Vecchietta e di Sano di Pietro. Da segnalare anche la pala e il san Sebastiano di Andrea della Robbia. Poi i dipinti di Vincenzo Tamagni, del XVI sec. E la collezione di bellissime maioliche di fine duecento. #Montalcino #Tuscany #AmbrogioLorenzetti #Gotic #renaissance
