Color Multi Face

It’s more than 100 paintings in jawlensky’s exhibition. The scenery on the face. This has been warned by an article from the artist’s memoir, which was excerpted during an in-depth visit to the hall of the mapfre foundation in Madrid: “apples, trees and human faces are just a warning to me, from which I can see something different: a life of color, captured by a passionate person, a lover.” Organized in chronological order, the exhibition is a detailed journey from the origins of the Russian painter and his early career in Munich, where he joined the vanguard of Debray Wright (the blue knight), where he experienced the transformation during the great war in Switzerland, where he lived in the German city Wiesbaden and the small-scale portraits were made when he was already suffering from arthritis, which forced him to give up the brush.

In Madrid, 100 works from different backgrounds, almost a miracle in this era, can be visited until May 9. They will then go to the museum where they co produced the project: the Cantini Museum in Marseilles and the Andre diligant Museum of art and industry in rubaix. “An anthology for Alexei von jarensky” (Moscow, 1864 – Wiesbaden, 1941) is an exhibition with the same cost (nearly 1 million euros) and content (100 works) as it was before the pandemic. Or something like that. Because the current loan, except for two paintings, must go to Spain under a virtual control, rather than accompany a curator in charge of public or private collectors to lend the work. Nadia Arroyo, cultural director of mapfre, explained to the media yesterday that since the outbreak, they are worried that suppliers will change their mind, but they have all kept their promise. Arroyo acknowledged that the increase in freight costs was higher than usual (a large part came from the United States). The insurance company’s budget for cultural events this year is similar to last year’s: 7 million euros.

Since Itzhak Goldberg, the exhibition Commissioner, was unable to go to Madrid, Carlos mart í n Garc í a, the chief curator of mapfre, translated the intentions of French historians. Martin Garcia recalled that jerensky was born into an aristocratic family in the Russian Empire. According to his father’s tradition, he first settled in Moscow and then engaged in a military career in St. Petersburg. Her meeting with Russian expressionist painter Marian von werevkin led her to trade guns for paintings. His early works, including the strong influence of icon and rural landscape painting tradition at the beginning of the exhibition, as well as the almost crazy use of color, became more and more prominent due to the influence of Cezanne and Gauguin after his contact with the ideas of forvesta in the Paris Salon.

Colorful portraits are experimented on a very dense palette, sometimes showing sharp cuts in dark blue with the help of a polisher and spatula. But in jawlensky’s case, “the beating of color on a human face,” Martin said, “is not just an experiment.” “His works are not religious, but spiritual. He’s very interested in Christianity, just like Buddhism or yoga. ” Like Kandinsky, he believed in the correspondence between color and sound of music. This can be seen in a series of small landscapes he sees in the windows of Wiesbaden, which he calls silent songs. John Cage, an American composer, has won one of the series of paintings in many exhibitions held in the United States for the Russian artist, who is more famous and popular in this country than in Europe.

At the end of his journey, he looks forward to a new face Gallery, inspired by the people around him or those he has met. The color is still strong, but the abstract has won the pulse in more or less realism. The artist named meditation that series. In this book, he tries to fuse two seemingly exclusive concepts: the inherent image of the icon and the abstract form of expression.
