Narrative: In his sixth lecture Flaxman observes:-"The Sculptor must not forget that his art is limited in comparison with painting. Colors and their effects are beyond his bounds. Whether the act he represents was performed in bright midday sunshine, or the darkness of midnight, concerns him not- his forms must be equally perfect. Even in bas-relief, a tree or two, some rude stone, or a wall slightly marked in the background must indicate a forest, a mountain, or a palace, without detailing a portrait of their component parts. " With such restricted powers, as regards designs or composition, a work of sculpture that offers to us an original idea must ever invite attention and command respect, even when the execution or carrying out the idea might scarcely justify it. Originality in Art evidences thought, study, independence, and self-reliance; he who seeks it looks away from the past, and onward into some unknown region of fancy, where Thought has not hitherto penetrated, nor Imagination as yet found a resting-place. In Mr. Durham's work, it might at first appear that as the idea was not complete in itself the sculptor's art could by no possibility render it perfect. The difficulty, however, is shown to have been overcome. The proper attributes of sculpture are sentiment, or action, allied with beauty of form, and here the last two qualities are united; the light or sunshine, which is required to make the idea perfect, is supplied, inferentially, by the action. The figure-that of a young girl-is very gracefully and correctly modeled. The attitude is unconstrained and perfectly natural. The sharpness of the shaded part of the right arm.. which seems to cause the limb to lose something of its rotundity, is occasioned by the strong light which falls upon the arm in the room where the figure stood when the drawing was made. It is of small size, and executed in marble. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!

TURKEY Trebizond on Black Sea - 1887 Wood Engraving

Full star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star smallFull star small

This old engraving has substantiated and stimulated a recent interest of mine; this physical thing now hangs in front of my reading chair, and I have found the digital copy of the charming old book from which it was cut (VOYAGES AND TRAVELS OR SCENES IN MANY LANDS VOLUME
de Colange, Leo (Ed.)).
Published by E.W. Walker, Boston, MA (1887))
I recommend enjoying some of the 19th century paintings under "Trabzon in art" in commons.wikipedia., which is where I first discovered this one. In some of these it is the artists viewpoint of serious (not ) peacefulness that I especially enjoy, and now this is substantiated, in front of my reading chair.
