Remake of "Pot Pourri", Herbert James Draper - 1897.
Link to original painting: http://www.victorianweb.org/painting/draper/paintings/3.html

The work is part of the photographic project "THE ESSENCE OF DECADENCE - Photography interpreting Decadence's painting".
The images, the offspring of the research of a lost time, reveal the "panic for the inevitable deception that enmeshes our lives, the total ruinous fall in this terrible condition" (Auerbach) that is renewed in the silence of contemporary shots. In a time of political and cultural crisis, the dusty atmosphere of the atelier transformed itself in the glossy patina of the photograph without losing the sensation of the cliff from where the artist inevitably falls. The melancholy of a look lost in another dimension, the boredom, the spleen evoked in these works reveal the sensitivity of new artistic means put in doubt and discussed at the time when these paintings were realized. The immortality of Schiele's models, the sour mystery of Klimt's women, the enigmatic muses of minor artists live again in a new form impressing their sighs onto the contemporary image.

Veri maestri nel creare equilibrio visivo e nel trattamento delle immagini. Oltretutto finalmente qualcuno che senza patemi non rinnega la storia e crea qualcosa di nuovo. Complimenti e votato.
