Auguste Renoir wrote in his notebook:

.

Artists do exist. But one doesn’t know where to find them. An artist can do nothing if the person who asks him to produce work is blind. It is the eye of the sensualist that I wish to open.

Not everyone is a sensualist just because he wishes to be.

There are some who never become sensualists no matter how hard they try.

Someone gave a picture by one of the great masters to one of my friends, who was delighted to have an object of undisputed value in his drawing room. He showed it off to everyone. One day he came rushing in to see me. He was overcome with joy. He told me naïvely that he had never understood until that morning why the picture was beautiful. Until then, he had always followed the crowd in being impressed only by the signature. My friend had just become a sensualist.

While Wallace Stevens says this:

The artist transforms us into epicures; that he has to discover the possible work of art in the real world, then to extract it, when he does not himself composes it entirely, that he is un amoreaux perpetual of the world that he contemplates and thereby enriches..

William Carlos Williams

La Nature est un temple où de vivants piliers
Laissent parfois sortir de confuses paroles;
L’homme y passe à travers des forêts de symboles
Qui l’observent avec des regards familiers.

Detalle de “Melencolia I” de Durero……………………….Taquilla del Estadio CU

.

El “cuadrado mágico” del grabado de Durero –más allá de entablar una curiosa correspondencia con la taquilla del Estadio CU– representa, como explican los autores de Saturno y la melancolía, el lado aritmético del melancólico, y funciona como un talismán para atraer influencias curativas. Este cuadrado en especial ha suscitado numerosas interpretaciones mágicas y alquímicas; en todo caso, pertenece a un sistema de pensamiento que depende de una visión del mundo basada en las correspondencias.

Qué rico es cuando, después de tantos días de calor, sales a la calle y sientes en la cara el viento de que va a llover. Luego no llueve, pero eso no importa, importa que sopla en la cara el viento de que va a llover.

Hoy en la Ciudad de México hizo tanto calor que durante todo el día tuve la sensación de que si volteaba a tiempo vería el mar al final de la cuadra.
