  • Susanna at her Bath | Musée historique de l'environnement urbain
    afforded by the row of trees linking the nude figure with the lustful looks of the elders and by the mirror placed on the ground between the legs of the bathing beauty which reflects nothing As with Rembrandt and Rubens later here we are dealing with portrayal voyeurism and desire The elders are painted figures who are looking at nothing and see nothing Our gaze on the other hand which Tintoretto makes lustful tries to catch a glimpse of Susanna s secrets in the mirror But Susanna is chaste and we see nothing We see nothing because we are not looking in the right place we are looking for the subject without even seeing the painting The artist The young Jacopo s father Battista Robusti was a dyer tintore and his son was nicknamed Tintoretto He was born in Venice in 1518 Some historians believe he was taught by Titian while others claim Boniface de Pitabi Whichever was the case in his youth he was influenced by the former before breaking away and adopting a mannerist style verging on baroque both dynamic and turbulent with dramatic lighting In 1564 he was appointed decorator of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco

    elders by the line of perspective provided by the hedge The mirror which reflects nothing except a scrap of white material is placed between them And the water in the fountain which plays the same part as the mirror in the Louvre painting apart from its limpid transparency shows nothing other than the reflection of the stones The story is the same only the scene is different But this time we have understood We do not try to look for Susanna s secrets in the river where they are not to be seen And that is a pity because although Susanna s reflection is not there the painting is there splendid imposing breathtaking The artist The young Jacopo s father Battista Robusti was a dyer tintore and his son was nicknamed Tintoretto He was born in Venice in 1518 Some historians believe he was taught by Titian while others claim Boniface de Pitabi Whichever was the case in his youth he was influenced by the former before breaking away and adopting a mannerist style verging on baroque both dynamic and turbulent with dramatic lighting In 1564 he was appointed decorator of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco in Venice for

  • The Fight Between Carnival and Lent | Musée historique de l'environnement urbain
    real visible influence on the portrayal of the people and their disguises is that of Hieronymus Bosch who died in 1516 shortly after Bruegel was born In this work Bruegel adopts a high angle viewpoint shunning the central perspective so dear to the Italians The picture comprises an ellipse that closes around the roofs of the houses with the figures evenly spread out in a symmetrical fashion beginning in the foreground and set around an invisible central line The festive atmosphere with its contrast between Lent lean and Carnival fat may also hint at the violence caused by another conflict Catholics against Lutherans which brought about the bloody suppression led by the Duka of Alba starting in 1567 The artist Not much is known about Pieter Bruegel The Elder not even his exact date of birth which has been estimated circa 1525 1530 However we do know that he died in 1569 The death certificate states that he died medio aetatis flore in the prime of his life it is therefore estimated that he lived until around 40 years of age Nor do we know where he was born Breda in the Netherlands or Bree in Belgian also called Breda
