‘’How to Make a Bigger Impact in Your Creative Field’’

Published on 6 November 2023 at 15:54

Greetings, my friend.

This will now become an event for us.

I await discoveries and tales from the host when he retrieves #artworks from the archive.

Yesterday, he whipped up four pictures at once and set them up in front of my cynical face with a smile only he could muster.

They didn't impress me. I failed to create a snub-nosed muzzle. 

The host convinced me further with his explanation of Alphonse Mucha's "Four Seasons" after he mounted his steed.

He would grab my face and continue talking while gazing into my tiger eyes if I glanced away.

These ''Four Seasons'' are permanently imprinted in my mind.

 

Can a ginger tabby appreciate Picasso's cubism or #Art Nouveau by Alphonse Mucha? Right now, it's my turn.

The more you give me, the more I like it.

Just wait till the evenings when the neighbourhood cats gather on our fences to discuss the day, and I'll fill them in on the art.

Everyone here treats me like a professor and listens with gaping mouths. Isn't it cool?

 

Nevertheless, it's time to nibble on my favourite nuts and nap for a while.

 

You may not believe me, but I was again a participant in a fantastic adventure where I haven't been in my dreams.

 

 

I found myself in a celebrity's dressing room.

Paris had returned.

Sarah, was celebrity's name, ignored her art director and removed her makeup while looking at herself in the mirror.

He suggested she order a poster by Mucha for the play "Gismonda."

In response to her narrowed gaze in the mirror, he opened his eyes wide and talked fervently about his admiration for young talent.

Grinning, she added, "Your protégé is talented, but we all have deadlines."

When will this genius complete his magnum opus?

Paris street 1900.

He completely disregarded her inquiry and instead questioned, "Who the heck is there?" upon hearing a tap at the door.

The answer was: ''Flowers for incredible Sarah Bernhardt.’’ 

''Sarah, dear, open the bedroom window at night. Do not go to bed with those flowers.''

He advised, transferring her with a vast bouquet wrapped in a ribbon. 

 

Sarah Bernhardt.

There were many swaps of bouquets.

Sarah cocked her head and expectantly raised an eyebrow.

In his best imitation of the English Parliament Speaker, he kissed her hand and assured her,

"Be sure—we will get everything on time and for very little money, madam!"

This brilliant mind waits for instructions while also worrying about where he will have breakfast in the morning. 

Sarah noticed a tiny, beautiful orchid with a card that stated in calligraphy, "From Alphonse Mucha."

 

Alphonse Mucha.

Alphonse Mucha? She queried again, lifting her gorgeous brow. Name of your genius?  We're going to get it done. Tomorrow's plans."

I had to sneak out of her dressing room as her fans were leaving the theatre to celebrate her performance at a nearby restaurant.

 

 

What effect, if any, commissioning an ad for her next performance from Alphonse Mucha would have on his career as an artist was beyond my knowledge.

Mucha became well-known as one of the most influential #artists of the Art Nouveau era because of Bernhardt's support. He also created ornamental panels, graphics, jewelry, and architectural designs. Thus, his output was wider than posters.

Despite their strong friendship, Mucha and Bernhardt gradually drifted apart so that Mucha could focus on his painting.

 

One of the variants of Mucha's ''Four Seasons.''

However, Mucha's career and image as an #Art Nouveau pioneer were greatly influenced by Sarah Bernhardt's early backing and cooperation.

 

Words like this whizzed through my groggy mind.

To my astonishment, I could construct such a large amount of data.

Almost as good as my host.

I suppose when felines on our block address me as "Professor," they act appropriately.

 

 

Hey, this is Nik here.

After Charlie, it's my chance to make a significant statement.

My wife, Elena, admires the work of Alphonse Mucha.

She once tried to recreate the iconic #Mucha painting "Four Seasons" in her style.

This is another example of her trying to shed new light on that classic.

 

I am directing anyone interested in purchasing this updated edition of "Four Seasons" to our webshop page.

 

And I want to question you, guys:

 

"Is it interesting for you to know what drives the contemporary artist to reference the work of artists of the past but interpret them in a modern way based on the views of today?"

 

As always, your feedback is much appreciated.

Let's make the world a better place. 

All the best.

Yours, Nik and Charlie.

Have a nice day.
