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).

Fashion and movies

Dear followers,

This post is not intended to explain everything that can be said about this classic sixties’ movie, because ‘The Sound of Music’ is one of the best Broadway musicals, a landmark film directed by Robert Wise, one of the best soundtracks of the twentieth century, a story of a family of singers, a love story, a story of resistance against Nazism, one history partially shot on the city birthplace of Mozart … and of course, the story that you personally want to understand. Finally in my opinion I think it should also be highlighted the story of a nun (‘former nun to nanny’) with vocation of dressmaker.
Someone who can design a ‘pinafore dress style’ for the seven boys and girls from the tissue of some old curtains,  is a true fashioner.
The character of Mary, conveys a taste for the world of clothing when in the song composed by Richard Rodgers with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein and sung by Julie Andrews, ‘My favorite things’ she sings “warm woolen mittens” or “girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes”.
Here pleasure is to contemplate the magnificent drawings that this designer Dorothy Jeakins, prepared for the main character and for which he won an Oscar.
Excuse the poor english of this blogger. Kindly, Henry.
