DISSIDENTS: As Alexander Ginzburg married Arisha ...


 

The KGB arrested Alexander Ginzburg five days before his wedding with Arina. Well, purely to make a person pleasant, - taking into account that the wife, according to the law, has the right to a date, and the bride is nobody.

The bride was expelled from the Moscow State University, where she taught, and Ginzburg was sent to Mordovia, to Potma, to the notorious 17th camp and two years refused to register them as husband and wife.

Soviet power knew how to be principled. Lawlessness is so lawlessness!

But the political zone also knew how to be principled and the prisoners joined the hunger strike, which Ginzburg announced.

Julius Daniel then wrote:

"It is certainly more expensive than Paris,
The solution of the comparison is clear and simple:
He is worth a mass, and our Arisha
Great is fasting. "

For his right to marry his Arina, Ukrainian and Lithuanian nationalists, Marxists and monarchists, including the brother-liberal, went hungry and went to concrete bags of penalty isolators.

It lasted twenty-seven days and ... the power retreated.

Leonardo da Vinci. The Annunciation, 1475

The paintings of Leonardo da Vinci have for several centuries with enviable regularity become the subject of controversy among scientists from various fields, art critics and art historians. In the case of the painter's works, the author was most often called into question: since Leonardo did not sign his works, one can focus only on his personal diaries with sketches and the testimonies of his contemporaries. As for the Da Vinci "Annunciation" picture, the researchers did not reach a consensus: some argue that the work was written by Leonardo himself from the first to the last smear, while others are sure that the artist had a co-author. After numerous studies, details were found that can confirm both the first and second versions.

Who could be the co-author of the Annunciation?

The work was discovered only in 1867 in the monastery of San Bartolomeo and Montoliveto and transported to the Uffizi Gallery. At that time, its author was considered Domenico Ghirlandaio, but two years later the picture was attributed to Leonardo due to the study of the diaries of the artist and comparison of the details of the Annunciation with sketches.

In favor of the version that the painting was written by Da Vinci on its own, there is a scrupulously prescribed, hazy landscape in the background and anatomical precision, which is traditional for the artist. For example, the wings of Gabriel Leonardo copied from real bird wings, he writes about this in one of his diaries. However, some unidentified "retoucher", apparently, found these wings are not impressive enough for God's messenger and rather roughly lengthened them. It is worth paying attention to the faces of the heroes of the picture. The face of the archangel Gabriel is similar to the angel that da Vinci wrote in the corner of the "Baptism of Christ" - the work of his teacher Verrocchio, and the face of the Virgin Mary - to the famous "Madonna with a carnation," written by Da Vinci a few years later.

However, some researchers hold the opinion that the "Annunciation" was written by Leonardo along with his teacher. They believe that, like the "Baptism of Christ", most of the picture was created by Andrea del Verocchio, and the young master was instructed to write a landscape in the background and the figure of the archangel. One of the radiographic studies showed that some of the work, supposedly done by Verrocchio, was written with fairly large, heavy strokes, and the colors used by it contained lead. As for the angel and the landscape, here the layers of the paint are more subtle, the smears very light, made with lead-free paints. The folds of Maria's clothes look traditionally for Verocchio's heavy and motionless, as if hewed out of stone. Another of the arguments of the supporters of the theory of co-authorship is the sarcophagus standing between Maria and the archangel. This is a copy of the sarcophagus of Piero de 'Medici in the church of San Lorenzo, made by Andrea Verocchio. However, it is possible that the sarcophagus was portrayed by Leonardo himself, as a tribute to the teacher.

 



There is another version of the Annunciation, written several years later and kept in the Louvre, which is currently considered the work of Leonardo. However, this picture is much more controversial. Many researchers are inclined to consider it the author of Lorenzo di Credit. Documentary evidence has been preserved that this small panel with a biblical scene was part of the altar of Pistoia Cathedral. Most of the work was done by Verrocchio, and he commissioned the "Annunciation" di Credit, to one of his students. Leonardo's paintings were repeatedly attributed to Di Credit, as well as vice versa, as they studied and worked with Verocchio at one time. Anyway, now the author of the Louvre "Annunciation" is recognized as Da Vinci.

The Annunciation in Painting

Icon-painting and pictorial traditions of the image of the Annunciation were formed almost from the very beginning of the existence of Christianity. One of the earliest works that captured this famous biblical scene is a fresco from the Roman catacomb of Priscilla of the 3rd century. For the most part, the canons and rules here have developed over many centuries before the appearance of Leonardo da Vinci. At the time of writing "Annunciation" artist was only about 20 years old, he has not become famous as an experimenter and innovator, and here, too, did not go against the traditions.

Approximately in the V century, the canon was formed, according to which Mary was depicted on the right side of the canvas, and the archangel Gabriel in the left. The details depended, for the most part, on what text with the description of the scene of the Annunciation was taken as the basis for this or that artist. For example, in the Gospel of Luke, the meeting of Mary with the angel who brought the Good News is described rather briefly and sparingly. In this case, there are many apocryphal ones

Rockline

Rockline var dotter till en rysk man och en fransk kvinna och började sin karriär i Moskva, studerade i studion av Ilya Mashkov, som ansåg henne en av hans mest lysande studenter. År 1918 blev hon lärling på Aleksandra Eksters studio i Kiev, Ukraina. [2] Ekster, som personligen kände Pablo Picasso och Guillaume Apollinaire, hade stor inverkan på Rocklines ursprungliga stil och inspirerade också hennes kreativa och fria målningsanda.

År 1918 och 1919 utställde hon på den 24: e Moskva Artists Association Exposition, och i andra galleri och föreningsutställningar. Även år 1918 gift hon sig med en MrRokhlin, från vilken hon antog sitt namn. År 1919 lämnade hon Ryssland och tillbringade två år i Tbilisi och år 1921 invandrade hon till Frankrike, där hon så småningom fick franska medborgarskap. I början bodde Rockline och hennes man med släktingar till sin mamma, i Bourgogne. År 1922 flyttade de till Paris, där det fanns ett stort ryskt samhälle, varav Rockline blev en del, som bor på Rue de Hambourg, nr 12, nära Montmartre.
Vägen till framgång

År 1922 uppvisade Rockline målningar i den ryska delen av Salon d'Automne, på Salon des Independants och på Salong Tuileries, där hon fick en positiv mottagning från media och besökare. Några av hennes målningar vann priser i utställningarna. [2] Journalisten och konstkritiker Raymond Escholier (1882-1971), kurator för Petit Palais museum, kallade hennes serie konstnärliga nakenbilder en "symfoni av kött". [3] Efter att ha stylat sig på kubismen och impressionismen började Rockline utveckla sin egen stil, "något mellan Courbet och Renoir", enligt kritikerna från L u2019Art et les Artistes "magazine". [1]

Paul Poiret var en av hennes beundrare och köpte två av hennes målningar, hjälpte till att främja sin konst och introducerade henne till den franska poeten och konstafrikajonen Charles Vildrac (1882-1971), som hjälpte Rockline till sin första solutställning i sitt galleri i 1924.

År 1927 blev hon medlem av Salon d u2019Automne Society, en privilegierad position och blev oberoende av sin man, skilde sig förmodligen från honom och flyttade till Montparnasse. Hennes ekonomiska oberoende sammanföll med en förändring i hennes konststil. Hennes verk blev ljusare, fria, närmare impressionismen, med en mjukare färgpalett, främst med Renoir-stylade penselsträngar. Alltid inriktad på att avbilda kvinnliga nudder, som dominerades på sin studio, gick hon med i Women Artists Society och etablerade nära kontakt med flera konstkolleger, särskilt Zinaida Serebriakova.

Rockline hade flera solutställningar i Paris gallerier, bland annat Vildrac (1925), Bernheim (1926), La Boetie (1930) och Barreiro (1932, 1933). På toppen av hennes berömmelse och framgång begick Rockline självmord den 4 april 1934, i Paris. Hon var begravd i Recey-sur-Ource, Côte-d u2019Or, i Bourgogne.
