ARETHA FRANKLIN. APOLOGIA Y MARTIROLOGIO

Advierte, con la mayor de las solemnidades, la Reina del Soul—a propósito de la monumental biografía escrita por David Ritz—: «No malgaste su dinero en la lectura de esta biografía desautorizada». Sin ponderar en exceso el exabrupto que siguió a aquella admonición, Aretha Franklin se permitió tildarla, a continuación, de [sic] «basurilla inmunda». Bien es cierto que arrastraban ambos un turbulento historial de felices colaboraciones y no menos tormentosas desventuras: Franklin y Ritz trabajaron juntos en la censurada confección de las edulcoradas memorias de la cantante, Aretha: From These Roots, publicadas en 1999.Lo que no admite discusión es que Aretha Franklin irrumpió en este impío mundo en el seno de la familia de un apuesto predicador baptista, felizmente entregado a las promiscuidades que la libérrima observancia del preceptuado amor al prójimo le imponía y se prestaba a atender religiosamente; toda una superestrella por derecho propio—conviene acotar aquí que no estaba al alcance de cualquier predicador que sus sermones se grabaran y distribuyeran por doquier como grandes éxitos de la canción popular—. Sobreexpuesta al influjo de los grandes músicos y artistas que frecuentaban el hogar de su afamado progenitor, germinaría la voz de la que estaba llamada a convertirse en acaso la más prodigiosa cantante .

ARTE ABSTRACTO (BA-ART) (E)

Abstraction shook Western art to its core. In the early part of the 20th century, it refuted the reign of clear, indisputable forms and confronted audiences instead with vivid visual poems devoid of conventional representational imagery and characterized by allegories of emotion and sensation. This radical artistic adventure established new artistic means, as much as narratives. Expression became characterized by shocking juxtapositions of color, light, and line. Artists abandoned the conventions of brush and easel and played with new materials and methods of artistic gesture: commercial paints and housepainter’s brushes, working on unstretched and unprimed canvases, moving the canvas to the floor, and applying paint with hands.

AT THE LOUVRE.

An exclusive look into the preparations behind the Naples in Paris exhibition at the Louvre, beautifully captured by the renowned photographer Robert Polidori. From June 2023 to January 2024, the Musée du Louvre in Paris welcomed sixty major masterpieces from the Museo di Capodimonte, on loan for the exhibition Naples in Paris: The Louvre Hosts the Museo di Capodimonte. The former Italian royal palace, which once served as a hunting lodge for Bourbon monarchs, is now one of the largest museums in Italy holding one of the continent’s most important collections of Italian paintings, drawings, and sculptures. Among the artworks featured are the famously enigmatic Antea by Parmigianino, a poignant painting of the Crucifixion by Masaccio, The Transfiguration of Christ by Giovanni Bellini, and preparatory cartoons by Raphael and Michelangelo. On the occasion of this historic artistic exchange, acclaimed photographer Robert Polidori was granted exclusive access to the preparations of the exhibition in the Louvre’s prestigious Grand Galerie. Known for his unique images of architecture and interiors, Polidori exquisitely captures the process and inner workings of the arrival, set-up, and display of the artworks. Part photography monograph, part art history book, this unique publication reveals the hidden workings behind one of the most significant collaborative efforts among major museums in recent years.
