The fine arts & meditationImages: Rembrandt -
Turner - Chagall - Icon
Beautiful, true and good: the three aims of life in Greek art and philosophy. All three qualities are internally related, occur simultaneously and can be interchanged with each other. They make up the perfect human being.
Until the beginning of modern times (Renaissance in the 14th century), God was seen as the primordial source of being and activity and was praised and worshipped in the arts. Since then, man as the image of God has moved to the centre of contemplation. He sees the beautiful, recognises the true and accomplishes the good. The arts and humanities are the paths to the perfected human being.
This paper is about "art and meditation". As in school, seeing and recognising the beautiful is presented. As in a museum, looking and perceiving deepens into appreciating what is true and real, wholesome and good. Meditation is a royal road to perceiving and appreciating a picture, music, all that is beautiful and good. Eye and ear, head and heart, the whole human being is thus ennobled and elevated to the beautiful, the true and the good.
Recently restored Fra Angelico:
Fra Angelico - Annunciation
Prado - Madrid - Spain
Fra Angelico - Annunciation Prado (Restored recently)
Painted with pen on 600-year-old wood, the colors in this painting are spectacular and surprisingly fresh. Still in precious colors (lapis lazuli and gold), the angel is rather sullen and Mary is inclined to say "yes." The vanishing point appears again in the small window of the room, this time with an open and simple decoration.
The painting, which came to Spain in 1611, was "rediscovered" in a Madrid convent in 1861 and eventually came to the Prado. Through restoration, it was restored to its original splendor.
He then opened the closed garden and banished the people from paradise. The painting is now considered the beginning of the modern era, inspired by the spirit of the Italian Renaissance.
