(Robert Demachy (1859–1936) Nu drapé, 1910. Bibliothèque nationale de France.)

A Woman’s Honour

Love bade me hope, and I obeyed;
Phyllis continued still unkind:
Then you may e’en despair, he said,
In vain I strive to change her mind.

Honour’s got in, and keeps her heart,
Durst he but venture once abroad,
In my own right I’d take your part,
And show myself the mightier God.

This huffing Honour domineers
In breasts alone where he has place:
But if true generous Love apppears,
The hector dares not show his face.

Let me still languish and complain,
Be most unhumanly denied:
I have some pleasure in my pain,
She can have none with all her pride.

I fall a sacrifice to Love,
She lives a wretch for Honour’s sake;
Whose tyrant does most cruel prove,
The difference is not hard to make.

Consider real Honour then,
You’ll find hers cannot be the same;
‘Tis noble confidence in men,
In women, mean, mistrustful shame.
Lord John Wilmot

“There were opium-dens, where one could buy oblivion, dens of horror where the memory of old sins could be destroyed by the madness of sins that were new.”  – Oscar Wilde

“It is not opium which makes me work but its absence, and in order for me to feel its absence it must from time to time be present.” – Antonin Artaud

Opium….

“Among the remedies which it has pleased Almighty God to give to man to relieve his sufferings, none is so universal and so efficacious as opium.”  – Thomas Sydenham

“They passed a bed of opium poppies, dispetaled now; the round, ripe seedheads were brown and dry – like Polynesian trophies, Denis thought; severed heads stuck on poles.”  – Aldous Huxley

Turnbull Bindings: Early German
Amongst the Alexander Turnbull Library’s rare books collection are a number of 15th- and 16th-century northern European blind-stamped bindings. This particular example fits the Germanic style of the period, but thanks to some research by Anthony Tedeschi, Curator of Rare Books and Fine Printing, we are able to add further details.
The decorative stamps, and the gryphon motif in particular, are associated with the bookbinder known as the ‘Haller-Meister’ who was active in Nuremberg between 1478 and 1517. The floral-patterned catchplates, too, are often associated with Nuremberg in style.
What makes the discovery even more exciting is that the book was also printed in Nuremberg by Anton Koberger in 1482, so it appears likely the binding is original and has protected the contents for the last 535 years.

To Evoke A Little Magick...
All acts of creation, of art can be perceived as magickal acts. To assemble this offering one might say that I have evoked the magick in each piece… Some wonderful art here today, enjoy it. More Soon!
G

She comes! I hear the rustling of her gown;
I scent the odor of her breath’s delicious fragrance;
I mark her step divine—her curious eyes a-turning, rolling,
Upon this very scene.
– Walt Whitman

So what does the cosmic ouija board say about the art offerings today? Dive In!

“In the deserted park, silent and vast,
Erewhile two shadowy glimmering figures passed.

Their lips were colorless, and dead their eyes;
Their words were scarce more audible than sighs.

In the deserted park, silent and vast,
Two spectres conjured up the buried past.

‘Our ancient ecstasy, do you recall?“
Why, pray, should I remember it at all?’

‘Does still your heart at mention of me glow?
Do still you see my soul in slumber?’ ‘No!’

‘Ah, blessed, blissful days when our lips met!
You loved me so!’ ‘Quite likely,–I forget.’

‘How sweet was hope, the sky how blue and fair!’
‘The sky grew black, the hope became despair.’

Thus walked they ‘mid the frozen weeds, these dead,
And Night alone o’erheard the things they said.

– Paul Verlaine (1844-1896), published in 1869

“Everything but the Kitchen Sink”
I find the excursions and directions that I am taken in selecting these pieces to be both exhilarating, exciting, frustrating and rewarding simultaneously. The real danger is in repetition of theme. You have to work against that, but allow the aesthetics to assert themselves, and at times that is in patterns… I have about the same amount of images chosen for this entry, not on display… perhaps tomorrow?
Feedback is welcome, let me know what you think about this project, please.

Hey!

A very diverse group of offerings, from 40,000 BCE up to 2017 ACE… Art evolves yet remains the same. It is that which we do when we are not struggling for survival, though some artist would disagree… But as a species, all that is done for pleasure, and to create could be called art.

“Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist.” – Rene Magritte

Baldassare Estense – A Young János Corvinus in 1486. 1486
An Italian Early Renaissance Painter, Baldassare Estense (1443-1504}. presumed an illegitimate scion of the house of Este, was the recipient of unusual promotion and rewards from the Dukes of Ferrara. It is not known where he received his artistic education, but he is first documented in 1461 at the court in Milan, where he was at work on portraits of Galeazzo Maria Sforza and his wife. Baldassare specialized in portraiture, recording the features of the Este rulers and their dependents in paintings and medals. Baldassare’s style, to judge from the certain works and from comments by contemporaries, was skillfully naturalistic; his works were elegant and delicate heirs to the International Gothic style, as opposed to the heroic portrait style that flourished in some parts of Italy in the later quattrocento.

HARPY
[noun]
1. Classical Mythology: female monsters in the form of birds with human faces. They steal food from their victims while they are eating and carry evildoers (especially those who have killed their family) to the Erinyes. They seem originally to have been wind spirits. Their name means “snatchers”.
2. a scolding, nagging and ill-tempered woman; a shrew.
3. a greedy, predatory person.
Etymology: from Latin Harpȳia, singular of Harpȳiae < Greek Hárpȳiai (plural), literally, snatchers, akin to harpázein, “to snatch away”.

Robert Bissell – Looks like everyone is getting in on the act.

Vincent also moved a lot in his life. He wrote about it: “Well brother, and during the move I’ve dashed off another drawing, a watercolour again. Based on a sketch done before my illness that was only half finished. So it’s coming to life again. It shows pinks on the beach, big hulls of boats lying in the hot sand with the sea very far off in a blue mist or haze, for it was a day with sun, but it’s with the light behind, not into it, so that you have to feel the sun through a few short cast shadows and the shimmering of the warm air above the sand. It’s only an impression but I believe it’s fairly accurate. My fingers are itching so much to get back to work, and needless to say I would rather have gone to Scheveningen than to the hospital. Still, what must be must be.” – Vincent van Gogh, 4 July 1882
