LT poets on art

Thanks to everyone submitting entries!

My profound thanks to [@vevvev] - without him, this collection would look dull - now it's vivid and beautiful!

I got this idea when [@klinok] linked video below that just begs a poem, IMHO
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCTdr0nSP9Y

I then thought of my older idea to write about paintings I love...and some that I don't (not a Picasso fan)...

The only requirement to participate, is your own poem or translation, link to the painting, link to any music of your choice.
I'd love to hear any ideas or suggestions. I count on you to provide a well diversified language selection so we see not only Russian, English, French, but beautiful Japanese, Chinese, etc.

Please PM me if you think it's a bad idea... And of course, as usual, you will get the credit next to your entry.
If we get good response, I would welcome collaborators to volunteer.

In no particular order,
[@Туна Ченевская] , [@Alexander Frei], [@Pinhas Zelenogorsky], [@jadis], [@brat], [@st. Sol], [@dandelion], [@vevvev],
[@Vera Jahnke], [@igeethecat], [@Lizzzard] , [@Phantasmagoria], [@polina_sk], [@sophia_], [@ww ww], [@sandring]
please help to translate or submit your own entries if you think it a good idea. You needn't be on the list... 🤔

Profound poem, translation, painting, and music.

Painting Dresden in Moonlight by John Dahl https://nga.gov.au/exhibition/turnertomonet/detail.cfm?IRN=172786&ViewID=2

Music

Translations:  German

Thanks to the author, inspiration came from the sadly lost, possibly destroyed, Van Gogh's self portrait Painter on His Way to Work:
https://www.wikiart.org/en/vincent-van-gogh/selfportrait-on-the-road-to-...

and music by Don McLean

Translations:  Russian English

Painting Seppuku by Pejac
https://www.mutualart.com/Artwork/Seppuku/EB7F7944558E7431

Today, I better understand this poem, so I'm sharing author's take:
" Japanese tradition is not based on suicide, but on honor and purity. If someone committed meanness and lost honor, he can return it through seppuku instead of being executed with shame. Modern society is more hymn to the criminal than to the victim, so too many vile people continue to live and create their meanness. Therefore, although the traditions of Japan, the Caucasus or other similar old cultures seem too brutal to us, they still have a certain meaning. Of course, my song does not call for suicide, but only describes seppuku in a historical context and rather in an ironic manner using the popular Russian song."

Song | French Jadis

Michael, maybe to distract you from troubles, you can make vast improvements to my Утренняя Заря?
I botched it up starting with зоря... And I still insist YouTube permits the image!
Be a good sport!
Feel better!!!

Alexander FreiAlexander Frei    Thu, 08/08/2019 - 13:19

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Thu, 08/08/2019 - 13:10

I think nobody understood what I was asking because Zhenya asked Aliis and she responded.
Why don't you write yours and we will ask Vera and Ustim - I asked Andrew so he knows, but might not be interested.

vevvevvevvev    Thu, 08/08/2019 - 13:51

Напишите им, Александр. И сами не отлынивайте Regular smile

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Thu, 08/08/2019 - 22:32

[@vera Jahnke], Vera, would you consider participating? Pick a panting, write a poem, pick music or we can suggest. Thanks in advance.

Everyone who reads this is welcome to participate.

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Fri, 09/08/2019 - 09:11

Absolutely - if you look, I have 2 from Jadis and 3 from PZ!

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 09/08/2019 - 13:30

I have to say that my idea is heavily supported by vevvev's help - without his videos, it would be not anywhere so visual! Thanks, Zhenya.

JadisJadis    Fri, 09/08/2019 - 18:53

Captain, oh my Captain! I just recycled an old and dusty thing that perhaps could find a place in this collection. If not, never mind, I'll take revenge on something else. Tongue smile
 

Vera JahnkeVera Jahnke    Wed, 14/08/2019 - 12:09

Dear Deanna, could you please check the video Nr. 18? It is mixed with Nr. 1. Thank you.
And let me say, again, that it is a beautiful collection, an excellent teamwork (thank you vevvev!) and a wonderful possibility to get in contact with other artist here.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 16/08/2019 - 01:55
