  • On An Overgrown Path: November Woods by a brazen romantic
    photographs above were taken yesterday as we walked through the campus of the University of East Anglia to the Sainsbury Center for Visual Arts to view their magnificent Francis Bacon exhibition Bacon shared Celtic connections with Bax and was born in Dublin in 1909 although he spent much of his creative life in London The exhibition focuses on Bacon s work from the 1950s and quite stunning it is Just as even the very best audio system cannot realistically reproduce an orchestral fortissimo from a recording so Bacon s paintings cannot be done justice on the printed page They must be seen in the flesh Some are massive black statements from the City of Destruction but others by contrast celebrate with colour Bacon s love of van Gogh and travel And those contrasts brings me the end of this Path It has travelled from the enlightenment through romanticism to the modern and is a reminder if we neeed one of how fortunate we are to live in a society of contrasts that can embrace equally Bunyan and Bax and Bacon and beyond Listen to a 43 minute BBC audio programme on Vaughan William s Fifth Symphony For more recordings of Bax Vaughan Williams and their contemporaries take An Overgrown Path to Treasure trove of 20th century composers Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and other errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Monday November 20 2006 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels arnold bax carmelites francis bacon Monastic Orders quidenham ralph vaughan williams 3 comments Anonymous said Dear Pliable may I call you Pliable Many congratulations to you and Mrs P on reaching 30 years of married life Best wishes to you both Mister B 8 04 pm Pliable said Thank you Mister Bijou we greatly appreciate that Today is a wonderful day As I write BBC Radio 3 broadcasts the best present we could hope for Marin Alsop conducting the Bournemouth Symphony in Elgar s sublime A flat Symphony Elgar s inscription on the score of that mighty work couldn t be more appropriate There is no programme beyond a wide experience of human life with a great charity and a massive hope in the future 8 46 pm Freudian Slip said I simply love looking at a beautiful scenic painting I own several of course and listening to something wonderful like this so relaxing Matt 1 25 am Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March 3 February 21 January 16
