Art of Konstantin Razumov

Some time ago I published a post “THE WOMAN WHO LEFT YOU”.

I explained in the post how I found paintings of Konstantin Razumov and gave a link to them.

Below is one of his paintings.

I hope that you will use the link above to read my short post, to enjoy Razumov’s paintings and a clip of music in the post.

There is also a wonderful poem in the post. It tells about spirit of beautiful women of Konstantin’s paintings. The poem is in Russian.

Here is an excerpt from it in English (! hope that my translation did not distort the spirit of the poem):

“The woman who left you will not

Remember your arms around her.

She will be older on one more loss.

But she still has her two wings.”

Connection after death (Wassily Kandinsky – David Paladin).

Yesterday I published a post about life and quotes of Wassily Kandinsky.
If you missed it please read it now HERE.
Then read an incredible but true story below.
*************************************************************************************************
Wassily Kandinsky, the great Russian painter, died on December 13, 1944 in Neuilly sur-Seine. At the same time in a German concentration camp of hunger and torture was dying American soldier David Paladin, white-skinned son of a missionary and Navajo Indian …
David Paladin was born in 1926. He spent his early years on the Navajo reservation near Chinle, Arizona. From an early childhood the boy showed violent temper. He kept running away from his family and soon found himself in a penal colony in Oklahoma.
With great difficulty he learned cartography. In this specialty he was drafted into the army. In Europe he was wounded and ended up in a German concentration camp, where experienced all the horrors of imprisonment.
When Allied troops liberated the prisoners a British patrol found his body and thinking him dead, threw it on a train of corpses. While unloading, they saw movement and took him to the hospital. Paladin was shipped back to the U.S. where he remained in a coma for two years.
When he regained consciousness he said in pure Russian that he was Wassily Kandinsky. Then he demanded the paper and began to draw and paint in the style of Kandinsky.
Everyone was surprised. Patient’s fingerprints were of the American soldier David Paladin, while he considered himself a Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky. Paladin drew a few pictures, and experts unanimously recognized the hand of the late abstractionist.
After leaving the hospital David continued to paint and he also started to play piano very well. It is well-known that Wassily Kandinsky in his childhood learned to play the piano.
Then Paladin became an art teacher at a college in his native Arizona. Later in Albuquerque (New Mexico), he opened his own art studio and enjoyed great popularity.
Paladin had many admirers. One of them was Thomas M. Messer, director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. He openly admitted that Paladin’s pictures are a direct continuation of work of the great Russian abstractionist Wassily Kandinsky. Museum bought 130 paintings of “New Kandinsky”. And when the museum held exhibition of paintings by the great Russian artist, in a separate hall it showed paintings of David Paladin.
Once at the request of friends Paladin agreed to be hypnotised. The doctor who hypnotised him, recorded David’s words on a tape recorder.
 What do you think?
This American to the bone again spoke fluent Russian, without the slightest accent. He told the doctor about the Kandinsky’s life: his childhood, studies, travels, life in Odessa, Moscow, Germany, France.
Then he said in Russian: “Why after my death my soul moved into this man?”…And then he answered after a pause: “Maybe, to complete the unfinished series of paintings.”
David Paladin died in 1984.
PS.
Ruth Montgomery wrote about the case in her “Threshold to Tomorrow” and Dr. Banerjee’s in “The Once and Future Life”.

Life and quotes of Wassily Kandinsky.

Yesterday I received incredible information connected in unbelievable mysterious ways with Wassily Kandinsky. I am going to publish it this week.

In the meantime I recommend all of my followers and guests to read about life of this artist HERE and in other articles on the internet and to read his quotes below.

Everything starts from a dot. ”

There is no must in art because art is free. ”

The artist must train not only his eye but also his soul. ”

The more frightening the world becomes … the more art becomes abstract. ”

Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”

Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential. ”

The true work of art is born from the ‘artist’: a mysterious, enigmatic, and mystical creation. It detaches itself from him, it acquires an autonomous life, becomes a personality, an independent subject, animated with a spiritual breath, the living subject of a real existence of being. ”

The artist is not a ‘Sunday child’ for whom everything immediately succeeds. He does not have the right to live without duty. The task that is assigned to him is painful, it is a heavy cross for him to bear. ”

To create a work of art is to create the world.”

What is important in art?

Julien Meneret lives in Melun, France. The distance between Melun and New York is 3552 miles.

Julien is 30 years old. The difference in age between us is 50 years.

I don’t know French but I did not need to know the language to understand and enjoy his photos.

Recently I introduced to you his “Rainy day. Park Debreuil, Melun.”

Today I want you to take a look at two other photos. They are so simple! However, I enjoy looking at them. Hope you’ll like them too.

Victor Caroli.

Some time ago I posted a photo by Victor Caroli “MOON TREE ISLAND“. Many people liked it.

Today you can learn about Victor Caroli and explore his galleries below.

VICTOR CAROLI FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY.

It took me a long time to explore the website and I will come to it again and again.

I especially liked Africa, Americana with many diners and views of Sedona (I traveled there), Black and White photos, Fine Art, Urban Geometry and Italy. However, there are also beautiful photos of flowers and sunsets. If you like cars you’ll enjoy seeing cars at the show.

It seems to me that Victor has photos for any taste.

 

Rimantas Dichavicius.

Rimantas Dichavicius is a photographer and an artist.

He is a born romantic. It is a romantic touch that helped him to publish an album, glorifying feminine beauty. The album ”Flowers of Flowers” was presented at the International Book Fair in Moscow in 1987.

Rimantas Dichavicius recalls: “There was censorship. This topic has been banned…Adherents of strict morals did not attack me. Just had a surprise – not up to criticism. ”

Foreign experts wondered how such high level of skill emerged in the country where the photos in the genre of “nude” have been banned for 70 years?

Rimantas Dichavicius never thought about that. He just did poetic, upscale photos elusive beauty.

Read about Rimantas Dichavicius and see his photos HERE.
