The Novel

Herman Jean Joseph Richir (Belgian, 1866-1942) – The Novel, c.1920s (Oil on canvas) – – The woman is not reading at the moment. She seems relaxed, the novel is resting at her knees, closed, but her finger is guarding her place. The long, slender fingers of her left hand are resting on the chair in a delicate, almost sensual manner. Her smile is furtive, allowing the words to transport her somewhere, in which she evidently takes pleasure…

Marc Chagall (French, born Belarus, 1887-1985) – The Angel and the Reader, c.1930 (Gouache with encaustic and oil paint on cream wove paper. The Art Institute of Chicago) – – Chagall’s ubiquitous angels are sometimes a sensitive expression of God Himself, more often than not the artist’s angels are depicted as messengers. Intermediary creatures bridging both earthly and celestial planes, angels embody divine will and word, protecting, inspiring and punishing by turn…

Museo Comunale d’Arte Moderna) – – Sacharoff married the German dancer Clotilde von der Planitz, and they had a successful career together.

Szerelem

A szerelem életteli. Soha nem akartam a sápadt változatot. A szerelem teljes erő. Soha nem akartam a hígított változatot. És soha nem szaladtam el a szerelem dicsőségétől, de fogalmam sem volt róla, hogy a szerelem ugyanolyan megbízható lehet, mint a Nap, a Hold és a csillagok… – Németh György – Egy gyógyszerész feljegyzései

The Dance Hall in Arles

Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853-1890) – The Dance Hall in Arles, 1888 (Oil on canvas. Musée d’Orsay) – – The multitude of characters, the variety of their style of clothes and the way they overlap, skilfully portray a feeling of crowdedness and saturation. The portrait of Madame Roulin on the right, who alone turns to look at the spectator, seems to express a claustrophobic terror…

Amit az írásról tudok

Inspirációk – Az egyik dolog, amit az írásról tudok: Azonnal tölts fel mindent. Lődd el, játszd el, veszd el minden mondatod minden alkalommal. Ne gyűjtsd össze azt, ami jónak tűnik egy később megírandó könyvhöz vagy egy másik soha el nem készülőhöz. Továbbadni-továbbadni mindent, most. Feltöltés! A könyveket meg így is úgy is megírod… – Németh György – Egy gyógyszerész feljegyzései
