     With the acrylic painting on canvas titled “Saint George crushing the dragon,” Eric Bourdon follows the straight line of a long pictorial, artistic and literary tradition !

     In the legend, the dragon extorted tribute from villagers. When they ran out of livestock for the dragon, they started giving up human tributes, chosen by lottery. When one day, the lot fell on the king’s daughter ! The king offered all his gold and silver to have his daughter spared, but the people refused. The princess was sent out to the lake, dressed as a bride, to be fed to the dragon. The saint thereupon rescued the princess and killed the dragon.

     Art exhibition “A Whale of a Time” at Cnoc Buí gallery, Union Hall, Co Cork in Ireland, is a story of whales, wolves and other characters straight out of the imagination of Nathalie Vessié. The universe of the Belgian artist is told through her paintings, her papier-mâché sculptures, her illustrations and her books.

The Kiss

Marble sculpture
Auguste Rodin / Carved by Jean Turcan
H. 181,5 cm ; W. 112,5 cm ; D. 117 cm


     The Kiss is a sculpture of an entwined couple, of which Auguste Rodin created as early as 1882 small versions in plaster, terracotta and bronze.

     In 1888, the French government commissioned Rodin to realize the first large marble version of The Kiss, for the 1889 Paris Universal Exhibition. But Rodin will take almost ten years to deliver it.

     This marble version appears for the first time at the Paris Salon (former name of the Salon of French Artists) in 1898. It is currently on display at the Musée Rodin in Paris.

     What many people don’t know is that Rodin’s The Kiss, like a lot of the Rodin Museum’s works, was not sculpted by Rodin…
