Il paesaggio inglese

3.paesaggioinglese
John Constable: «La pittura è una scienza e andrebbe perseguita come un'indagine secondo le leggi della natura. Perché, dunque, non potrebbe un paesaggio essere considerato come una branca della filosofia della natura, i cui dipinti non sono altro che esperimenti?»

    • Note Bibliografiche: Lost in the Wilds of Greece tells of a love affair between the author and the vast wilderness areas still to be found in Greece. Travelling with her horse, George, she chronicles her encounters with the wild itself, and the people who still live there and preserve the magnificent landscape by using the farming methods that first shaped it.

She describes breathtakingly lovely countryside, and also records her dismay at the loss of much that is beautiful. Sleeping rough most of the time, sh... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: The English village has great tenacity, but settlements, like the men who live in them, are mortal. It has been estimated that there are well over 10,000 villages in Britain - and thousands more former occupation sites which have been abandoned. In this fascinating study Trevor Rowley traces the changes in the form and fabric of villages and village life from prehistoric times to the present day, illustrating his findings with some superb aerial photographs and drawings. The most important features to emerge are that, contrary to general belief, villages are constantly changing, and many of... continua a leggere

    • Note Bibliografiche: . Why are we so fascinated by ruins? Do we see them as jig-saws and riddles or romantic evocations of the damage of Time, complete with crumbling stone and ivy? The author looks back to the start of the cult in the 18th century, when follies were built in English landscape gardens, artists and writers thrilled to Rome's poetry of decay, and in Paris, the great chef Careme even served blancmange in the shape of classical ruins. His narrative takes the reader from Troy and Pompei to Nazi fantasies, the shattered Statue of Liberty in the film "Planet of the Apes" and even to the Chelsea Flower... continua a leggere
