/ Susanna and the Elders is a 1610-1 painting by the Italian artist Artemisia Gentileschi. It currently hangs in the Schloss Weißenstein collection, in Pommersfelden, Germany.

Artemisia Gentileschi or Artemisia Lomi July 8, 1593 - 1656 was an Italian Baroque painter, today considered one of the most accomplished painters in the generation following that of Caravaggio. In an era when female painters were not easily accepted by the artistic community or patrons, she was the first woman to become a member of the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence and had international clientele.

She specialized in painting pictures of strong and suffering women from myths, allegories, and the Bible - victims, suicides, warriors. Some of her best known themes are Susanna and the Elders (particularly the 1610 in Pommersfelden) and Judith Slaying Holofernes (most famous is her 1614-20 in Galleria degli Uffizi) and Judith and Her Maidservant (her version of 1625 at the Detroit Institute of Arts). She was known for being able to convincingly depict the female figure, anywhere between nude and fully clothed. Artemisia was also famous for her skill and talent in handling color, both overall in the composition but also in building depth.

That she was a woman painting in the seventeenth century and that she was raped as a young woman by Agostino Tassi and participated in the prosecution of her rapist long overshadowed her achievements as an artist. For many years she was regarded as a curiosity. Today she is regarded as one of the most progressive and expressive painters of her generation.

|Baroque|

Name: Maisons-Laffitte Castle

Architect: François Mansart

Year: 1630-51

Style: French Baroque

Location: Paris, France

Point of Interest: The château stood on a rectangular platform outlined in the French manner with a dry moat. The cour d'honneur was defined by terraces. The central block extends symmetrically into short wings, composed of several sections, each with its own roofline, with raked roofs and tall chimney stacks, in several ranges, with a broken façade reminiscent of the planning in work of Pierre Lescot and Philibert Delorme in the preceding century.

Here’s a side by side, so you can understand how I approached the illustrations of Marie Antoinette. On the left is my drawing before the color application and on the right is the original painting of Marie Antoinette by Vigee Le Brun. The idea was to take Marie’s image from a professional portrait to a more relatable illustrative form. From highbrow to lowbrow. These are what helped lead me to creating the self-portraits as Marie Antoinette that are now in view at @mesu360_project_gallery .

Ziua ruinelor, Floresti si Filipestii de Targ

Acesta e Micul Trianon, supranumit si Palatul Domnitei. Construit in anii 1911-1913 de celebrul arhitect Ion Berindey la cererea lui Gheorghe Grigore Cantacuzino.
Se pare ca n-a apucat sa locuiasca in palat nici Alice Cantacuzino (pentru care fusese costruit) si nici un alt inaintas al familiei, pentru ca G.G.Cantacuzino moare inainte de finalizare si Mihail C. nu continua lucrarea si nici nu restrictioneaza accesul. In anii ce urmeaza se curata spatiul de tot ce e valoros si de materialele mai scumpe (teracota si acoperisul de cupru) si ajunge in paragina complet pana la finalul Celui de-al Doilea Razboi Mondial.

In momentul de fata, palatul a fost retrocedat si apoi vandut unui om de afaceri privat care a permis Fundatiei Domeniul Cantacuzino sa infiinteze proiecte pentru restaurarea monumentului. Intr-adevar, ieri am gasit cladirea inconjurata de schele pentru sustinere si pentru o viitoare lucrare.

Soprano Lilith Verhelst hails from Belgium and has been living in Singapore since 2015. She majored in early music voice at the Royal Conservatory of the Hague, and is currently Adjunct Voice Teacher at School of the Arts, Singapore @sotasg. In RDB's debut on 28 Aug, she performs the French Baroque cantata Céphale et Aurore by Jean-Baptiste Stuck, a rarely-heard masterpiece of intense beauty and drama not to be missed! .
.
1) What do you enjoy most about Baroque music and why?
The unique sound of the instruments, the beauty of a single basso continuo with a powerful melody and the freedom to be creative beyond what is written. .
.
2) Tell us a little bit about the Stuck cantata you will sing for us.
In the Baroque period there was a big distinction between the French and Italian music. In this cantata, Stuck merges the best of those two worlds: making a musical canvas of the French gracefulness and dancing rhythms, and playing with the Italian colourful harmonies and instrumental/vocal virtuosity. In the span of 20 minutes you will hear the beautiful story of Aurore, Goddess of the Dawn longing for the sleeping hunter, Cephale set to the most beautiful melodies.
.
3) How did you get started on studying early voice?
Coming from the Low Lands, there has always been a lot of early music present in the churches and concert halls. The real passion came later, when spending time in the UK and hearing the ensembles there, singing and playing early music with a freedom in their interpretation. This made me decide to continue studying early music at The Hague Conservatory.
.
4) Do you have a favorite Baroque composer and/or piece? Why?
The answer may be a very classic one: but Bach is the all-time favourite. His music is timeless, profound in emotions and you never get tired from listening or singing/playing it.
