After title of the plays. The Love and the Death

Dear followers and friends, today here are some sketches, drawings, engravings, illustrations… (don’t matter how we could call them) made after title of plays: theatre, literature, movies, musicals, TV series, etc. The 8th picture is an sketch by Munch. Maybe someday I will classify each author with his most important topic, and Edvard had a life determined by deep feelings about the LOVE AND THE DEATH and this is obvious  if we realize the details on his works. So, this artist made some sketches like ‘Carrion’ (dead rotten flesh) after a poem by Baudelaire, that was really awesome. Definitely THE LOVE AND THE DEATH, and these extreme sensations when they are mixed achieve a deep passion.

So, about this thought, I just want to suggest a great song ‘My skin’, composed after a real narration of a woman that realizes that her couple can’t make love with her because she is dying.

'My skin' song(Album Ophelia) by Natalie MerchantAlso a dreadful and great film ‘Amour’ (maybe the best of my last ten years of cinema) about their late and deep love between an old couple.

'Amour' the film by Michael HanekeAnd finally about the 12th picture, the sketch by Blake, Quentin, I linked some frivolous but delicious pictures about a literature play fitted for TV ‘Brideshead Revisited’ (perhaps this language was promoted with the lushness of british works).
