By Osvaldo Guerrieri

Un gelido gennaio del 1936 a Parigi. Seduta a un tavolino del «Deux Magots», una donna si toglie i guanti, estrae dalla borsetta un coltello e comincia a pugnalare in gran velocità gli spazi tra le dita della mano aperta a ventaglio. A volte sbaglia il colpo e sanguina. Seduti lì accanto, Pablo Picasso e il poeta Paul Éluard osservano il gioco. Il pittore si alza, si avvicina alla donna e le chiede in dono i guanti: vuole collocarli nella vetrinetta dove conserva i ricordi più preziosi. los angeles donna glieli concede levando su di lui due occhi dal colore indefinibile.

Read e-book online Le muse di Klimt (Italian Edition) PDF

By Paola Romagnoli

Gustav Klimt ha vissuto a Vienna, capitale di un Impero che in quegli anni period il cuore culturale dell'Europa. Sono gli anni delle Secessione viennese, della nascita della psicanalisi, delle sinfonie di Mahler e Schönberg, dei caffè letterari. E' questo il contesto unico e irripetibile che ricostruisce Paola Romagnoli in questa storia romanzata, in cui si alternano due voci. Una voce che narra cronologicamente le vicende dell'artista nella sua epoca. Una voce "metafisica" che si presenta come una sirena nell'Attersee, il lago nella regione del Salzkammergut, a ovest di Vienna, luogo dell'anima del pittore. l. a. chiave narrativa della sirena racchiude in sé los angeles sintesi di tutto ciò che Klimt ha inseguito nelle donne: è sensualità ed eros, è giovinezza ma senza età, è madre e amante, è mito. Ed è un simbolo che segna il passaggio tra vita e morte, poiché accompagna narrativamente gli ultimi giorni di vita di Klimt, stroncato da un ictus nel 1918. Con il piglio della scrittrice ma l. a. conoscenza della storica dell'arte, Paola Romagnoli avvolge il lettore in una vicenda biografica di grande fascino, che spiega come Gustav Klimt, opponendosi alle idee conservatrici dei suoi contemporanei, realizzò dipinti erotici e simbolici che rappresentavano i sogni, le speranze, le paure e le passioni dell'uomo e sia diventato così in step with il pubblico il pittore delle donne.
