Drawing…a therapy for the creative
The loving relationship between painting and music can be also enjoyed in Vermeer’s masterpieces.
“Very often the musician is female, her curves rhymed in those of her shapely instrument. Or the performance is conceived as a prelude to future pleasures.”
Laura Cumming says in this article. Well, now men or women, both alike can be seen through erotism and acknowledged by their own body curves and lines. We may also say that just as Music is the prelude for pleasure, the Visual arts are the spices on it.

Peter Greenaway, 2012. THR
Peter Greenaway is my favourite director, in fact it was because of one of his films that I started to really care about cinema. One of my most important research studies back in University was mainly about one of his movies: The Cook, the Thief, his Wife and her Lover. Years later from the first time I watched one of his films, I have found other directors that interest me and want to research about because can give something meaningful to my life, however, Greenaway will always be special in my life (even if I don’t watch his movies everyday) and there is always something in me that drives me to care about his themes and to keep my research about his films. Hopefully one day I will be able to write a book about his work and what could communicate to the world.
I leave you this interview about his latest film: Goltzius and the Pelican Company
Peter Greenaway on Art, Cinema, Sex, and Religion (Q&A) – The Hollywood Reporter.
More than a trailer I think this is a visual work that gives a glimpse of what the movie is about… Hard to describe, though :). But, this is how Greenaway’s works actually are… The next one is a closer approach to Goltzius and the Pelican Company:
Whether by scientific explanation or by plain intuition, lots of us know that art affects people in a deep and transcendental way. If not, at least, is the reflection of human kind development through time. Now, Scientist Eric Kandel is exploring the realm of the mind and the art to try to explain what intuitiveness has said in its own abstract language.

How much I would love to be in Frankfurt right now (or in the upcoming weeks) so I could go to this exhibition and admire some of the greatest paintings in the world, that have captured the essence or imaginary of the darkest thoughts and feelings of humans.
Well, this article has some good examples of it.
