Closer to Van Eyck The panels of the Ghent Altarpiece are coated with layers of varnish. Varnish serves as a protective coating for paint layers and has important optical functions, since it saturates a painting's colors and creates a more even surface. However, most varnishes gradually degrade over time, getting brittle and opaque, and becoming a darkened and yellowed layer that can dramatically impact the perception of a painting's colors and tonal values. Offices Osakidetza, coll-barreu arquitectos The river of Bilbao is not the only area where urban renewal is taking place. In the center of the old town, the Basque Government has commissioned the young Basque architect Juan Coll-Barreu to design a 'vital' building, dominantly present on the corner of Calle Licenciado Poza with La Alameda de Rekalde. The works of this architect are characterized by their adaptive nature, like a glove fits to a hand. All conditions and circumstances are taken into account: first the urban context, the client's wishes, the functions of the building, the climate, and finally the project itself. After winning the design competition, this was the first project for him in a complex urban situation: 'In this design process, everything was a challenge'. The building is bold and transparent, to express the healty image of Bilbao, and the vital works of its occupants: the Department of Public Health.

Secret Teachings of All Ages: The Pythagorean Theory of Music and Color Index Previous Next HARMONY is a state recognized by great philosophers as the immediate prerequisite of beauty. A compound is termed beautiful only when its parts are in harmonious combination. The world is called beautiful and its Creator is designated the Good because good perforce must act in conformity with its own nature; and good acting according to its own nature is harmony, because the good which it accomplishes is harmonious with the good which it is. Beauty, therefore, is harmony manifesting its own intrinsic nature in the world of form. The universe is made up of successive gradations of good, these gradations ascending from matter (which is the least degree of good) to spirit (which is the greatest degree of good).
