MUSIC IN ART

video


MUSIC ALWAYS BRINGS A BREEZE OF YOU. TO THE MEMORY OF CARLOS LOSADA.

ROSALÍA DE CASTRO

THEY SAY THAT PLANTS DO NOT SPEAK

They say that the plants do not speak, not the brooks, nor the birds,
Nor the waves with their roar, not with their brilliance the stars,
So they say: but one cannot be sure, for always when I go by,
They whisper about me and say
“Ah, there goes the madwoman, dreaming,
Of the everlasting springtide of life and the fields,
And yet soon, very son, her hair will be grey,
And trembling, frozen, she sees that the frost is upon the grass
-There are gray hairs in my head, there is frost on the lawns,
But I press on dreaming, poor, incurable somnambulist,
With the eternal spring of life that goes
And the perennial freshness of the fields and souls,
Although some were scorched and although others scorch.
Stars  and fountains and flowers, will not murmur of my dreams,
Without them, neither can one admire -  nor can one live without them.
Translation Kate Flores

WHEN PIGASSO MET MOOTISSE




Some years ago I used to read this book at Primary School to work on friendship and to show hilariously how Modern Art started a long time ago. It is really lovely.

THE STARRY NIGHT


 The Starry Starry Night may be a kind of picture story book. It is easy to read but the meaning behind it is deep. I’m not exactly sure that children can understand it but the drawings are colorful and beautiful. Jimmy Liao uses black or grey for sad moments and then brighter colors for happy and hopeful times.
