Read e-book online Artisti rivali: Amicizie, tradimenti e rivoluzioni nell'arte PDF

By Sebastian Smee,Violetta Bellocchio

Nel museo di Kitakyūshū si trova uno strano ritratto dei coniugi Édouard e Suzanne Manet, realizzato da Edgar Degas nel 1868-69. Una grande porzione di tela, questa l. a. bizzarria, è stata asportata con una lama, tranciando il viso e il corpo di Suzanne. Ancora più sorprendente, il responsabile dello sfregio fu lo stesso Manet, maestro e amico di Degas. Che cosa period successo? Forse non period soddisfatto del risultato? O forse le radici del gesto affondano in qualcosa di più profondo e torbido?
La storia dell’arte moderna è piena di storie simili: a meno di un anno dalla morte di Jackson Pollock in un incidente d’auto, il suo sodale Willem de Kooning iniziò una relazione con l. a. sua ragazza, Ruth Kligman, l’unica sopravvissuta a quell’incidente; Pablo Picasso ha tenuto in bella vista in casa sua in line with tutta los angeles vita il ritratto che Matisse fece alla propria figlia Marguerite, lo stesso ritratto che un pace veniva usato da lui e dai suoi amici come bersaglio consistent with il tiro a freccette; dieci anni dopo los angeles morte di Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud ancora non voleva sentirlo neppure nominare, ma conservava gelosamente un suo grande dipinto, rifiutandosi di prestarlo according to le mostre.
A guardare bene, è possibile rintracciare uno schema. Ed è quello che fa in questo libro Sebastian Smee: immergendosi nelle vite di quattro coppie di artisti, ricostruisce gli incontri e gli scontri, i traumi, le invidie e le gelosie che hanno forgiato l’amicizia e l’influenza reciproca tra queste grandi personalità, di cui ancora oggi resta traccia, con l. a. stessa intensità e l. a. stessa fiamma, nelle loro opere.
Attingendo a biografie, memorie, testimonianze e lettere, il critico e giornalista premio Pulitzer fa infatti emergere in maniera chiara il fondamentale apporto fornito da ognuno dei due “artisti rivali” nell’evoluzione del percorso artistico dell’altro. Una sfida reciproca a spingersi sempre più avanti nella sperimentazione, ma che li ha portati a lottare con ferocia in step with conquistare gli stessi collezionisti e gli stessi riconoscimenti.
Ricco di storie e di idee, Artisti rivali indaga questa misteriosa dinamica tra riconoscimento e repulsione che ha scandito le tappe principali della storia dell’arte recente: è solo nel confronto, anche aspro, che ci si rivela migliori.

«Sono sempre le opere a suggerirci che tante altre coppie di artisti furono unite da rivalità feconde come l’amore: rivalità nutrite - usiamo le parole ispirate di Smee - da “quella intimità che i manuali di storia dell’arte non raccontano”» — Tomaso Montanari , “la Repubblica”

«Ti ritrovi alla high-quality del libro soddisfatto e appagato, eppure ne vorresti ancora, vorresti che continuasse a raccontarti di arte, artisti e collezionisti, di tutte quelle relazioni umane che preparano il momento in cui l’opera prende forma su tela» — John Williams , “The big apple occasions”

«Sebastian Seme, combinando perfettamente gusto artistico, comprensione della natura umana e prosa cristallina, ci racconta il dramma, talvolta farsesco, di artisti che sono stati fonte vicendevole di ispirazione e tormenti, spingendosi a raggiungere vette altrimenti inspiegabili» - Peter Schjeldahl, “The New Yorker”
