изобразительное искусство

Герои этой книги – 10 великих художников, 10 гениев, которые видели мир не так, как другие люди, и говорили о нем не словами, а цветом, образом, колоритом, для которых живопись явилась «страстным молчанием». Что же делает человека великим? Где то единственное, что поднимает его над другими людьми, оставляя потомкам понимание их величия? Что общего у героев книги? Ван Гог был беден как церковная мышь, Пикассо оставил миллионное наследство. Дюрер остался бездетным, у Рубенса было пятеро детей. Микеланджело никогда не женился, у Рембрандта было две любимых жены, Босх всю жизнь провел в родном городе, Гойя не любил сидеть на месте. Знаменитые мастера предстают перед читателем не как абстрактные великие имена, а нормальными живыми людьми, которым свойственны те же радости и горести, что и обыкновенным смертным. Ну, а выделило их из толпы и приподняло выше пересудов и сплетен только одно – их безграничная преданность искусству и огромный труд. Не они вели искусство за собой. Оно подчинило их себе, заставило служить Вечному и сделало их великими…

Ни один культурный этап не имеет такого прямого отношения к XX веку, как эпоха Возрождения. Искусство этого времени легло в основу знаменитого цикла лекций Паолы Дмитриевны Волковой «Мост над бездной». В книге материалы собраны и структурированы так, что читатель получает полную и всеобъемлющую картину той эпохи. Когда мы слышим слова «Возрождение» или «Ренессанс», воображение сразу же рисует светлый образ мастера, легко и непринужденно создающего шедевры и гениальные изобретения. Конечно, в реальности все было не совсем так, но творцы той эпохи действительно были весьма разносторонне развитыми людьми, что соответствовало идеалу гармонического и свободного человеческого бытия. Каждый период Возрождения имел своих великих художников, и эта книга о них.

Я дарю вам эту историю, которая так долго сидела в моей душе. Пытаясь выразить все её эмоции и перипетия, связанные с жизненной борьбой и редкими моментами личностного счастья… Черная луна (Black Moon) – название книги, подразумевающее аналогию луны и холодного сердца. А также абстрактная сторона, покрытая вечной тьмой спутника… Сравнимая лишь с бьющимся сердцем, на котором выкованы мелкие жилы обмана и лжи. Это месяц, представляющий собой фазы, как символ изменчивости человеческой натуры.
