A quiet back street





The whole City was covered with a mystery of years.
He was sullen and decrepit, but proud and slender.
On the narrow streets a weak light shook,
And every sharp sound seemed triple there.
In the aisles of dark, full silence,
The havens of trade hid quietly;
Cornering sharp violating the course of the wall,
The house was blushing roofs;
Were seen from the street in the gothic door
Huge and gloomy canopy,
Where the damp shadows are always luxuriant ...

LOVE AND CHANGE

In the mountains on the rock about wantonness dreaming,

sat Izmena thin and angry.

And next to the cherry sat Love,

dawn gold in braids weaving.


In the morning, collecting fruits and roots,

they rested at the mountain lakes.

And eternally led an endless dispute:

with a smile, one and the other with contempt.



One said: "We need
Loyalty, decency and purity.
We are bright, kind should be:
This is beauty!

Another shouted: "Empty dreams!"
But who will thank you for this?
Here, right, laughter will tear your stomachs
Even brainless fish!

It is necessary to live skillfully, cunningly and wisely,
Where - to be defenseless, where - to climb ahead,
A joy saw - tear, do not yawn!
Take it! We'll figure it out later!

And I do not agree to live shamelessly!
Try to be honest and honestly love!
- To be honest? Green game! Nonsense!
Is there anything higher than the joy of sin ?!

One day they raised a cry,
That in anger the shaggy old man woke up,
A great sorcerer, an irritable grandfather,
Slept in a cave for three thousand years.

And the old man barked: "What kind of war is this ?!"
I'll show you how to wake a Niki de Sainte Phalle art for sale

sorcerer!
So, to finish all your strife,
I will fuse you together for all time!

He seized Love with a wizard's hand,
He seized the change with the other's hand
And threw them into the pitcher, green as the sea,
And then there is joy and sorrow,
And loyalty, and anger, kindness and dope,
And pure truth, and a vile deception.

As soon as he put the pitcher on the fire,
The smoke rose above the forest like a black tent, -
Higher and higher, up to the mountain peaks,
The old man looks at the jar with curiosity:
When everything melts, it will change,
What kind of hell would that be?

The jug cools down. The experience is ready.
A crack ran through the bottom,
Then he broke up into a hundred pieces,
And ... there was a woman ...

Vernissage of one painting: Alfred Sisley. "The Garden of Oshide." Montgeron, 1881

Vernissage of one painting:

Alfred Sisley.

"The Garden of Oshide." Montgeron, 1881



Alfred Sisley. "The Garden of Oshide." Montgeron, 1881

This garden was written not only by Sisley. The owner of the garden and home in Montgeron, Ernest Oshide, was one of the first admirers of young Impressionist painters. He bought their paintings and often saved them from hunger. And was, by the way, the owner of the legendary painting Monet "Impression. Sunrise, which gave the name to the entire movement of young artists. He invited Claude Monet, Edouard Manet and Alfred Sisley to his estate in Montgeron, where they lived for several months and wrote local landscapes and decorative panels for the huge house of Osh Martin Beaupré art paintings for sale

de. Artists rested: in this house they were always waiting for a workshop in a park pavilion, a pleasant society, exquisite food and wine, sun and picturesque places.



Ernest is the successor of a successful business. His parents established a trading company and were engaged in the sale of fabrics. His wife Alice, also a rich heiress of large industrialists, and five children. Things are going well.

When Ernest is ruined, the parents' business is stupidly dashed and the parental money is wasted, the Parisian journalists will write poisonous articles: how nice it is on the part of the artist Claude Monet to shelter the family of Ernest Osched, who went bankrupt, buying his paintings. It was only half true: Monet really invited Ernest, Alice and their children to rent one house for two families when the money at Oshade became tight. But in the ruin of an unfortunate merchant, it was only he who was to blame.

This sunny Sisley landscape was signed in 1881 - by that time Ernest had already gone bankrupt and laid the estate. His family already lived with Claude Monet, and he himself was in constant traveling and enthusiastically made a journalist career in Paris. The children of Ernest will soon be called Claude Monet by the Pope, and for the time being, the legitimate wife of Oshide Alice will become the beloved and the assistant to Monet.

So most likely Sisley began work on the Garden Sadness a few years earlier, when Ernest could still afford to buy Impressionist paintings by the hundreds, when the carefree life in Montgeron seemed endless, and the light summer flirtation of the hostess of Alice Oschede and the young temperamental talented Claude Monet still seemed fleeting and frivolous. Only the sultry lazy shadows will reach out to the other end of the garden - and all this obsession will dissipate.
