The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.

The Assumption of the Virgin

The Assumption of the Virgin is the famous #fresco by the italian artist Correggio decorating the impressive dome of the Cathedral of Parma in Italy.

☞ Do you know…

‣ The scene describes the ascent in #heaven of the Virgin, pushed by angels, saints and patriarchs, while her son Jesus, immersed in the light, goes to meet her.

‣ Initially the work was not understood and not even appreciated because of the audacity of the artist who, in a place like the #Cathedral of the city – of absolute representation and total decor – wanted to dare with a very #innovative representation for the time: just look at the #pose of Christ in the center (highlighted with our red).

‣ What immediately strikes are the bodies that seem to hover in the air instead of being painted. This cancellation of #geometry and #architecture is rendered thanks to an unparalleled mastery of the painter: the #spiral composition appears perfect through the exact scale proportions of each character and the use of color’s gradations and blur to differentiate the characters more close to those further away.
