Leonardo da Vinci was born on this day in 1452. The world-renowned polymath excelled as a painter, sculptor, architect, designer, theorist, engineer, and scientist, though he was often more interested in the design and exploratory phases of his work than bringing them to completion. Widely recognized as the father of the High Renaissance, even though he was of the same generation as Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510), Domenico Ghirlandaio (1449-94), and Filippino Lippi (1457-1504), rather than Michelangelo (1475-1564) or Raphael (1483-1520). Though Leonardo famously didn’t complete a number of major commissions, those that he did are today some of the most recognizable images of the Italian Renaissance.

Paolo Caliari, known as Veronese after his birthplace, died on this day in 1588 in Venice, where he spent the majority of his career. After training and early work in his native Verona, the artist moved to Venice in 1553, though he would continue to work for patrons throughout the Veneto. Alongside Titian and Tinoretto, Veronese dominated late Renaissance painting in the city on the lagoon, and was widely sought after for portraits, religious narratives, and mythologies. In addition to richly colored oil paintings, Veronese excelled in the medium of fresco like those painted for the Villa Barbaro at Maser. Veronese was famously brought before the inquisition for his on charges that his Last Supper, painted for the refectory of SS. Giovanni e Paolo in Venice, took too much artistic license with the biblical account. After his trial in July 1573, changed the title of his work to Feast in the House of Levi rather than change his composition to suit church officials.

Tezer Özlü - Yaşamın Ucuna Yolculuk (via intiharkorkusu)

(Kaynak: beynimdenkurulmusadondum, sonsuzsonbahar gönderdi)

Tanımadığın bir kentte ne denli isterdin yitip gitmeyi…
Ama öyle kolay değil.
Henüz rüzgarlara doydun mu ?
Sor kendine…
Henüz bulutlara doydun mu ? Yeterince haykırabildin mi henüz ?
