Isabel del Rio: My Religion is the Art

Isabel del Rio. The Shadow of the Art

Isabel del Rio. The Shadow of the Art

My Religion is the Art is Isabel del Rio motto. I know her and I can claim it’s true. She lives the art with passion, with an incredible passion for our so materialistic times.

Today, I’ve been reading her essay ‘The Shadow of the Art’ and this passion is obvious. ‘The Shadow of the Art’ is a personal search of the author. Isabel del Rio tries (and gets) to define Art and to explain what artists have said about this abstract concept.

‘The Shadow of the Art’ is also an Art History book, with a revision of artists and artistic movements from the ancient times: Egypt, Ancient Greece, Roman portraits… Of course, she includes great masters from the Renaissance and Baroque and the first American art movements (Hudson School). But Isabel del Rio doesn’t forget outside or popular artists. I love her article about Cherokee artwork.

Avant-garde movements and current art is specially present: Cezanne, Picasso, Warhol, Alexander Calder, Jasper Johns… and every chapter is written with her fresh style, sometimes poetic, sometimes ironic, but always entertaining.

If you are in love with arts, I recommend you this book. If you are indifferent, read the book. Isabel del Rio passion will accompany in these cold afternoons.
