Florence & The Machine: ‘Queen Of Peace ‘

It has been a long time without being here. Maybe a good way to get back is with music. Hope you like it.

Queen of Peace” is a song by English indie rock band Florence and the Machine from their third studio album, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful (2015). It was written by Florence Welch and Markus Dravs, and produced by the latter. The song was released on 21 August 2015 as the album’s third single.

A 10-minute double-feature music video for “Queen of Peace” and “Long and Lost”, another track from How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, was directed by Vincent Haycock and premiered on 27 July 2015. The short film is a part of a larger series of music videos centered on Welch and the storyline it creates known as The Odyssey.

Friday Night Films: “The private life of Sherlock Holmes” by Billy Wilder

The Last Island


The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes is a 1970 DeLuxe Color film in Panavision, directed and produced by Billy Wilder; he also shared writing credit with his longtime collaborator I. A. L. Diamond. It starred Robert Stephens as Sherlock Holmes and Colin Blakely as Dr. Watson. The film offers an affectionate, slightly parodic look at the man behind the public façade, and draws a distinction between the “real” Holmes and the character portrayed by Watson in his stories for The Strand magazine.

The film that changed my life: Mark Gatiss

The magic of this film, I think, comes down to the writing of the dialogue by Wilder and his writing partner, Izzy Diamond. There are a number of conversations between Robert Stephens (Sherlock) and Colin Blakely (Watson) that are just like tiny symphonies…

Simplicity is art – Carol Gold Sculpture

Simplicity  is art – Carol Gold Sculpture

Born in Hartford, Connecticut, in 1937, Carol Gold grew up on a dairy farm in western Massachusetts. Between 1956 and 1960, she studied art at Cornell University, and the museum school in Boston. Fourteen years later, her children old enough for her to return to sculpting full time, her work began develop in earnest.

Bronze casting techniques learned at the College of Martin in 1977-1978 enabled Gold to build and operate her own foundry. This intimacy with the entire casting process profoundly affected the evolution of her sculpture. She began to think in terms of the potential of the metal and started to use wax as her creative medium rather than the clay of her initials sculptures.

Simplicity is primary in her continuous search for forms with which to best express the essence of motion and mood. Through the textures and attitude of her figures and animals she strives to convey her feelings about nature and human character.

For the past 25 years, Gold’s work has been widely exhibited in the U.S. and Canada. Among her numerous awards are those received from the National Sculpture Society and the North American Sculpture Exhibition. Public commissions include sculptures for the city of Bakersfield, California, and for the campus of Southwest Oregon Community College in Coos Bay, Oregon.

Friday Night Films: “The Haunting” by Robert Wise

The Last Island

Long before The Legend of Hell House (1973) or Ghost Story(1981) or Poltergeist (1982), Robert Wise directed a creepy little tale about the supernatural called The Haunting (1963), which was based on the Shirley Jackson novel, The Haunting of Hill House. In the film, Dr. John Markway (Richard Johnson), a professor of anthropology with a deep interest in the occult, decides to investigate an infamous mansion with a long history of unexplained psychic phenomena. Joining him in his experiment are Luke Sanderson (Russ Tamblyn) who stands to inherit the house from his family, and two volunteers, Eleanor Vance (Julie Harris) and Theodora (Claire Bloom) who possess unusual extrasensory sensitivities.

Though set in New England, The Haunting was actually filmed in England with the interior scenes being shot at the MGM studio in Borehamwood. “The exterior was a several-hundred-years-old manor house out in the country, about ten miles from Stratford-on-Avon,”…

Exposición “Renoir. Intimidad” en el Museo Thyssen #Arte #Pintura

The Last Island


El próximo 18 de octubre se inaugurará en el Museo Thyssen (Madrid), la exposición Renoir. Intimidad. La muestra se centra en el papel que ocupan las sensaciones táctiles en los lienzos de Pierre-Auguste Renoir, que se perciben a través de las diferentes etapas de su trayectoria artística y en una amplia variedad de géneros, ya sean escenas de grupo, retratos y desnudos como paisajes.

Más de 70 obras del artista francés, procedentes de museos y colecciones de todo el mundo, que permitirá descubrir cómo se servía de las sugerencias táctiles de volumen, materia o texturas como vehículo para plasmar la intimidad en sus diversas formas –social, amistosa, familiar o erótica–, y cómo ese imaginario vincula obra y espectador con la sensualidad de la pincelada y la superficie pictórica.

Desde el 18 de octubre al 22 de enero de 2017. se podrán contemplar iconos como “Después del almuerzo” (1879), un…

“Humanity against Evil” by Gaetano Cellini #Art #Sculpture

The Last Island


“Humanity against Evil” – now at Rome’s National Gallery of Modern Art – was one of the first works by Ravenna-born sculptor Gaetano Cellini (1873-1937).

This allegoric, material expression of an ideal, is a perfect fit for Auguste Rodin’s quotation, “Art is the most sublime mission of mankind, since it is the expression of thought, which seeks to understand the world and to make it understood.”

Rodin was indubitably a source of inspiration for Cellini, who presented the plaster cast for this sculpture at the 1906 Milan Expo. On the base, he inscribed the title of the work and a couplet explaining its meaning: “Thus I’ll extirpate using my teeth and nails / the eternal pain that stings my heart”. He completed the actual marble sculpture in 1908.

Cellini was obviously inspired by Michelangelo as well – and the latter might have chosen a different caption for the muscular tension of…
