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 Virgin of the Rocks

There are two versions of this masterpiece, similar to each other but not the same, both painted by #Leonardo da Vinci. The first that we report here is kept in The Louvre in Paris, while the second is located in the National Gallery in London.

☞ Do you know…

‣ The subject was chosen by the buyers of the #painting and, during the two years of work, it changed gradually adapting to the expectations of the public. The scene, taken from Christian literature, features Jesus and John the Baptist as children during their first meeting

‣ The setting inside a cave between #rocks and meticulously represented vegetation – see the foreground plant highlighted in our iconic red – symbolizes the entrails of the earth as mysterious as the womb. Then cave as a place of rebirth and passage to the afterlife
