Concetto Spaziale. Quanta, 1960, by the Italian artist #LucioFontana. The #RedSlashes are the most #iconic and #famous #artworks of #Fontana, who used to make one or more #slashes cut into the #canvas with the intention of going #beyond it, and analysing the relationship between #surface and #dimensionality. Fontana formulated the theory of #Spatialism, proposing that infiltrating #energy in matter would originate #dynamic and #artistic forms. This is the origin of his series “#ConcettoSpaziale”. In this picture, the work is entitled “Quanta", a term borrowed from quantum #physics. It is made up of a different #red elements, in different #geometric shapes, freely arranged on the #wall. Each canvas presents a slash, in a dynamic and continuous #exploration of the “space beyond”.

MDJ: Medusa by Italian artist Vincenzo Gemito was made of gilt silver in 1911 in Naples. The severed head of Medusa stares out from the convex face of a two-sided relief. Its psychological realism, simultaneously beautiful and hideous, reveals the conflicting yet symbiotic emotions of attraction and repulsion. This combination expresses the power of ancient Greek apotropaic objects, charms that warded off evil. Since the sight of Medusa's face--transformed by the goddess Athena into a monster with snakes for hair--had turned men into stone, it became a traditional apotropaic symbol. Athena affixed the actual Medusa's monstrous head to her shield, and human warriors followed suit. The sculptor Vincenzo Gemito derived his composition from the famous antique cameo, the Tazza Farnese, but transformed it into an entirely new kind of sculptural object. He revived Renaissance techniques of lost-wax casting to make the relief. Although he concentrated on the face of the two-sided, glistening metallic relief, he textured the back with snakeskin. #vscophile #iphonex #baroque #Italian #renaissance #italianart #naples #Art #arthistory #MonumentsduJour #igertravel #monuments #loves_monuments #California #losangeles #USMonuments #USA #gettymuseum
