The Sartorialist Pierre Bergé & associés VENTES - SAMEDI 12 ET DIMANCHE 13 JUIN 2010 - PARISLes 12 et 13 juin prochains, Pierre Bergé & associés auront l’honneur de disperser les collections d’Anne et Jacques Kerchache à Drouot Montaigne. Elles seront représentées en majorité par les Arts Premiers, mais aussi par l’Extrême-Orient, l’Art Contemporain avec des oeuvres de Paul Rebeyrolle, Sam Szafran, par le Surréalisme (Max Ernst), par du mobilier de Designers (Ado Chale, Hervé Van Der Straeten), par une collection d’insectes, de minéraux … Cet ensemble est avant tout le reflet d’une vie consacrée à la passion des Arts Premiers, mais elle est aussi la manifestation de l’influence des surréalistes dans le choix des objets. Jacques Kerchache (1942-2001) possédait à la fois la passion de l’oeuvre et le bonheur de la communiquer. Devenue Mme Kamal Douaoui, Anne et son époux ouvrent une nouvelle page du livre de leurs passions.

Pietà (Michelangelo) Detail of Mary The structure is pyramidal, and the vertex coincides with Mary's head. The statue widens progressively down the drapery of Mary's dress, to the base, the rock of Golgotha. The marks of the Crucifixion are limited to very small nail marks and an indication of the wound in Jesus' side. The Madonna is represented as being very young for the mother of a 33 year old son, which is not uncommon in depictions of her at the time of the Passion of Christ. Do you not know that chaste women stay fresh much more than those who are not chaste? Another explanation suggests that Michelangelo's treatment of the subject was influenced by his passion for Dante's Divina Commedia: so well-acquainted was he with the work that when he went to Bologna he paid for hospitality by reciting verses from it. While there was a precedent for painted depictions of Mary grieving over the dead Christ in Florentine art, the subject appears to have been novel to Italian sculpture. Pope-Hennessy, John (1996).

Its popularity grew rapidly in the early 19th century, when increasingly serious and learned admirers of neo-Gothic styles sought to revive medieval Gothic architecture, in contrast to the neoclassical styles prevalent at the time. Gothic Revival architecture often has certain features,derived from the original Gothic architecture style, including decorative patterns, finals, scalloping, lancet windows, hood moldings and label stops. Relation to other cultural movements[edit] The Gothic Revival was paralleled and supported by "medievalism", which had its roots in "antiquarian' concerns with survivals and curiosities. Survival and revival[edit] A younger generation, taking Gothic architecture more seriously, provided the readership for J.
