Portinari, um ilustre desconhecido em Paris Por Leneide Duarte-Plon em 27/05/2014 na edição 800 Esta é sua quarta viagem a Paris, mas é a primeira em que as obras o representam. Nas outras três, Cândido Portinari (1903-1962) veio em carne e osso. Em 1929, com bolsa de estudos, em 1946, para uma exposição na galeria Charpentier e, em 1957, para uma grande exposição de 136 obras. Mas, desde então, Paris não viu mais nenhuma exposição do maior pintor brasileiro do século 20. Agora, os dois painéis monumentais, “Guerra e Paz”, que Portinari realizou para a ONU, de 1952 a 1956, são o centro da magnífica exposição inaugurada com grande pompa dia 6 de maio no Grand Palais, um dos museus mais prestigiosos de Paris. A mostra foi fruto da vontade de dois presidentes socialistas, François Hollande e Dilma Rousseff, que quiseram, assim, lembrar a mensagem humanista de Portinari. Essa é a primei…

Bob Dylan on Sacrifice, the Unconscious Mind, and How to Cultivate the Perfect Environment for Creative Workby 
“People have a hard time accepting anything that overwhelms them.” Van Morrison once characterized Bob Dylan(b. May 24, 1942) as the greatest living poet. And since poetry, per Muriel Rukeyser’s beautiful definition, is an art that relies on the“moving relation between individual consciousness and the world,” to glimpse Dylan’s poetic prowess is to grasp at once his singular consciousness and our broader experience of the world. That’s precisely what shines through in Paul Zollo’s 1991 interview with Dylan, found in Songwriters On Songwriting (public library) — that excellent and extensive treasure trove that gave us Pete Seeger on originality and also features conversations with such celebrated musicians as Suzanne VegaLeonard Cohenk.d. langDavid By…

Homem Constrói Esculturas “Vivas” que se Movem com o Vento. Desde 1990 o artista Theo Jansen tem se dedicado a “criar” novas formas de vida. Ele não faz isso com pólen ou sementes, mas sim com tubos de plástico. Ele desenvolveu o que chama de “Animari” (animais de praia).

The Lion and the Bird: A Tender Illustrated Story About Loneliness, Loyalty, and the Gift of Friendshipby 
An ode to life’s moments between the words. Once in a long while, a children’s book comes by that is so gorgeous in sight and spirit, so timelessly and agelessly enchanting, that it takes my breath away.The Lion and the Bird (public library) by French Canadian graphic designer and illustrator Marianne Dubuc is one such rare gem — the tender and melodic story of a lion who finds a wounded bird in his garden one autumn day and nurses it back to flight as the two deliver one another from the soul-wrenching pain of loneliness and build a beautiful friendship, the quiet and deeply rewarding kind. Dubuc’s warm and generous illustrations are not only magical in that singular way that only someone who understands both childhood and loneliness can afford, but also lend a mesmeriz…

Alice in Wonderland Illustrated by Ralph Steadman: A 1973 Gemby 
Down the rabbit hole of creative magic, one truly mad hatter at a time. In the century and a half since Lewis Carroll met little Alice Liddell and imagined around her his Alice in Wonderland, the beloved tale has inspired a wealth of stunning artwork, ranging from John Tenniel’s original illustrations to Leonard Weisgard’s mid-century masterpieces to Salvador Dalí’s little-known heliogravures to Robert Sabuda’s pop-up magic. But among the most singular and weirdly wonderful is the 1973 gem Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland Illustrated by Ralph Steadman (public libraryAbe Books). Barely in his mid-thirties at the time, the beloved British cartoonist — best-known today for his collaborations with Hunter S. Thompson and his unmistakable inkblot dog drawings — brings to Carroll’s classic the perfect…
