Detail - Kiss of Death - East Side Gallery

New (2009) version of "My God help me, this deadly love to survive"

With the 30-year-old wall down, East Germans flooded west. But a trickle of artists from around the world took their place, applying a riot of color to the remains of the once grim, gray divider.
The paintings at the East Side Gallery document the time of change and express the euphoria and great hopes for a better and free future for all people of the world.
The longest surviving stretch of the Berlin Wall -- 1.3 kilometers (0.8 mile) long -- became the East Side Gallery. There, a Russian artist, Dimitri Vrubel, immortalized Honecker himself, depicting his famous kiss with former Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev.
The East Side Gallery is an international memorial for freedom. It is a 1.3km long section of the Berlin Wall on Muhlenstra?e in Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, located near the centre of Berlin and consists of approximately 106 paintings by artists from all over the world, painted on the east side of the Berlin Wall. It is possibly the largest and everlasting open air gallery in the world. The first painting was started by Christine Mac Lean in December 1989 immediately after the fall of the wall. Paintings from Kasra Alavi, Kani Alavi, Jim Avignon, Thierry Noir, Ingeborg Blumenthal, Ignasi Blanch i Gisbert, and others have followed.
The paintings at the East Side Gallery document the time of change and express the euphoria and great hopes for a better and free future for all people of the world. For tourists the most interesting part of the East Side Gallery is the section close to station Ostbahnhof where all the paintings were completely restored. Also of interest is the river-side part of the East Side Gallery which shows the current art of Berlin's graffiti scene.

The Piano Lesson, 1916, Henri Matisse

The Piano Lesson, 1916, Henri Matisse

MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Leica R 60mm/2.8 marco.

The Piano Lesson depicts the living room of Matisse's home in Issy-les-Moulineaux, with his elder son, Pierre, at the piano, the artist's sculpture Decorative Figure (1908), at bottom left, and, at upper right, his painting Woman on a High Stool. Matisse began with a naturalistic drawing, but he eliminated detail as he worked, scraping down areas and rebuilding them in broad fields of color. The painting evokes a specific moment in time—light suddenly turned on in a darkening interior—by the triangle of shadow on the boy's face and the rhyming green triangle of light falling on the garden. The artist's incising on the window frame and stippling on the left side produce a pitted quality that sests the eroding effects of light or time, a theme reiterated by the presence of the metronome and burning candle on the piano.
