...this month's featured artist is: Munch

Edvard Munch is considered as one of the major symbolist painters, forerunner of the expressionist movement. "I don't paint what i see, but what i've seen" he said, to underline his distance from the (post)impressionism.

MusicWolfgang Amadeus Mozart (27-01-1756 - 05/12/1791) - 'Lacrimosa', 'Confutatis' and 'Dies Irae' from 'Requiem'

For this reason he was also extolled as one of the greatest interpreters of biblical stories and narrative painting in general.
Stylistically, his paintings progressed from the early 'smooth' manner, characterized by fine technique in the portrayal of illusionistic form, to the late 'rough' treatment of richly variegated paint surfaces, which allowed for an illusionism of form suggested by the tactile quality of the paint itself.

A few words about the music

There are a lot of legends and stories around Mozart's Requiem, one the most powerful, intense and dramatic compositions ever written in the world.

Mozart wrote it during his last days of life until the very end (the score was found on the bed on the day of his death), and that's probably what let him put so much feelings and sufference inside those notes: he was writing his own Requiem Mass, he was "living" it.

In this video you can listen to 3 movements called 'Lacrimosa Dies Illa', 'Confutatis Maledictis' and 'Dies Irae', from the third section of the requiem (7 in total).
