C’è un ritratto a olio di Leonardo alla National Gallery di Washington, conosciuto come "Ginevra de’ Benci", nel quale, per una serie di ragioni, la cupa signora che fissa sofferente l’osservatore non può essere la diciottenne Ginevra, imminente sposa e conosciuta in tutta Firenze per la sua rinomata bellezza. I conoscitori di Leonardo sanno che i tratti del viso di questa donna sono molto simili a quelli dell’unico autoritratto conosciuto dell’autore, visibile nella "Adorazione dei Magi". La Ginevra de’ Benci del quadro non può che essere Caterina, la madre cinese di Leonardo, l’unica donna che egli abbia mai amato.<br />La vita di Leonardo Da Vinci rimane un enigma, nonostante i documenti emersi dagli archivi antichi e le migliaia di pagine dei suoi quaderni personali. Egli nacque fuori dal matrimonio, e non voluto, frutto di un incontro casuale tra un notaio della Repubblica fiorentina, Ser Piero Da Vinci, e una schiava domestica cinese, la quale serviva in casa di un cliente del padre di Leonardo, un tale Ser Vanni. Il notaio fece subito allontanare Caterina da Firenze, e la portò a<br />partorire a Vinci, quindi la diede in sposa a un suo umile tuttofare, detto l’Accattabriga. Caterina era solo una bambina quando fu catturata dai predoni mongoli e poi venduta in un mercato di schiavi a Venezia. A quel tempo, gli schiavi orientali erano del tutto comuni in Toscana, al contrario di quanto si ritiene oggi. Ginevra Datini, la figlia del mercante per eccellenza del Rinascimento Francesco Datini, nacque anch’essa da una schiava tartara, di nome Lucia, che lavorava nella casa del ricco mercante. Questo fatto sorprendente non sarebbe mai venuto alla luce senza il ritrovamento fortuito, nel 19° secolo, di un vero e proprio tesoro di lettere e libri contabili nascosti in una partizione segreta nel suo palazzo di Prato. Ma vi sono decine di altri indizi e di prove che confermano le radici orientali di Leonardo. Egli era mancino, aveva l’abitudine di iniziare i suoi quaderni dall’ultima pagina, era un vegetariano, aveva una visione quasi buddista del mondo; i suoi dipinti mostrano paesaggi che sono chiaramente derivati da pittori cinesi vissuti secoli prima. Quello alle spalle della "Gioconda" è tipicamente cinese, e Mona Lisa non ha le sopracciglia, proprio come le schiave cinesi descritte in Italia all’epoca. Dopo anni di indagine storica, Angelo Paratico svela il mistero della vita di Leonardo. Grazie a nuovi elementi di prova emersi dagli archivi di Stato di Firenze, porta alla luce ciò che è sempre stato davanti ai nostri occhi.

<DIV><B>A New York Times Notable Book: Roxana Robinson’s definitive biography of Georgia O’Keeffe i</B><B>s a rich and revealing portrait of the iconic American artist.</B><BR />  <BR /> Artist Georgia O’Keeffe was born into a family of strong Midwestern farmwomen and taught self-reliance at an early age. Coming of age in the modern era, she went on to defy the social conventions of her time and lead a successful and emancipated life full of creativity, feminism, and austerity that has taken on mythic proportion. Roxana Robinson’s multilayered book explores O’Keeffe’s journey to personal and professional independence, the evolution of her art, and her most influential relationships. Written with the cooperation of O’Keeffe’s family, and using sources unavailable during her lifetime, this biography presents the artist’s own voice through her letters to family and friends.<BR />  <BR /> Robinson follows O’Keeffe from her childhood on a Wisconsin farm to the center of the New York art scene where she met her husband, photographer Alfred Stieglitz. Stieglitz championed O’Keeffe, exhibiting her work at his gallery and drawing her into his inner circle of early modernists. But O’Keeffe, ever caught between the demands of love and art, left New York to find inspiration in the New Mexico desert where she created some of her most renowned work.<BR />  <BR /> This vividly rendered, beautifully written account succeeds in capturing the passions, controversies, and contradictions in the life of an extraordinary woman.<BR />  </DIV>

Cristo tiene siempre algo que decirnos, a cada uno en particular, personalmente: en el Evangelio, en la doctrina de la Iglesia, en la liturgia. Se incluyen las meditaciones correspondientes para el mes de abril de 2017, desde el sábado de la 4ª semana de Cuaresma al domingo de la 3ª semana de Pascua, con meditaciones alternativas para días señalados, junto con las lecturas de la Santa Misa.<br /><br />El lector se siente ayudado a conversar con Dios de la vida misma: de sus situaciones reales cotidianas, de sus penas y afanes concretos. Por eso Hablar con Dios no es un tratado para "especialistas", sino para la gente que encontramos cada día por la vida: para la madre de familia, para el empleado, para el oficinista, para el sacerdote, para el profesor. Los más de dos millones de ejemplares vendidos son un ejemplo de esto.<br /><br />El libro no encorseta la oración; es, mas bien, un manantial de sugerencias abiertas, para cualquier circunstancia vital, pero que apunta a la vez a la concreción, a una aplicación efectiva. La oración diaria se proyecta así sobre la convivencia y los quehaceres normales de todos los días. El libro esta lleno de sugerencias para adelantar en el amor a Dios, en la convivencia diaria, en la mejora del carácter y en la perfección del trabajo habitual.

Contemporary figurative sculptors rarely support themselves, but in steps Dan Corbin, breaking all the rules on his way to becoming a successful studio artist. Corbin takes two decades to realize his art dream. He makes the usual sacrifices, travels the world, seeks out art education, finds and loses love. So why is the outcome of his narrative so different? Corbin’s enigmas are revealed in this humor-leveled portrait of a man full of energy, propelled by a distressed childhood, seeking a higher calling, and intent on full redemption. Raised in California, Corbin reinvents himself in a life filled with risk and adventure. An army stint in Germany began his thirst for travel, living in Spain, Santa Barbara, Hawaii, and Berkeley. This enables Corbin to learn more about himself and others, as he cobbles together an eclectic belief system based on mysticism, faith and science, and then attempts to develop an art style capable of expressing his new sense of self. Corbin’s long journey is sometimes hilarious and grueling. He searches inside and out and in every direction for the lost answers but ultimately finds the resolution in plain sight.<br /><br />About the Author<br /><br />Dan Corbin, from Northern California, was academically trained as a contemporary figurative sculptor. Few move on to support themselves as professional studio artists. In his first book, he tells how he did it.
