Michel Houellebecq (2)

Le temps sur Venise est bien lourd
Et je te sent un peu nerveuse:
Calme-toi un peu, mon amour,
Je te lécherai les muqueuses.

Il y aura des années à vivre
Si nous restons des enfants sages;
Nous pouvons aussi lire des livres:
Regarde, mon amour, c'est l'orage.

J'aime ton goût un peu salé,
J'en ai besoin deux fois par jour;
Je me laisse complètement aller:
Regarde, c'est la mort, mon amour.

                                             Michel Houellebecq

El temps sobre Venècia és ben feixuc
I et sento un poc nerviosa:
Calma't una mica, amor meu,
Et lleparé les mucoses.

Hi haurà anys per a viure'ls
Si restem savis infants;
També podem llegir llibres:
Mira, amor meu, és la tempestat.

M'agrada el teu gust un poc salat,
En tinc necessitat dos cops al dia;
Em deixo completament anar:
Mira, és la mort, amor meu.

Tiziano Vecellio - Violante (La Bella Gatta)
Known in English as Titian was an Italian painter, the most important member of the 16th-century Venetian school. He was born in Pieve di Cadore, in the Republic of Venice. During his lifetime he was often called da Cadore, taken from the place of his birth.
Recognized by his contemporaries as “The Sun Amidst Small Stars” (recalling the famous final line of Dante’s Paradiso), Titian was one of the most versatile of Italian painters, equally adept with portraits, landscape backgrounds, and mythological and religious subjects.
His painting methods, particularly in the application and use of color, would exercise a profound influence not only on painters of the Italian Renaissance, but on future generations of Western art.
During the course of his long life, Titian’s artistic manner changed drastically but he retained a lifelong interest in color. Although his mature works may not contain the vivid, luminous tints of his early pieces, their loose brushwork and subtlety of polychromatic modulations are without precedent in the history of Western art.
He continued to accept commissions to the end of his life. Titian was (depending on his unknown birthdate) probably in his late eighties when the plague raging in Venice took him on 27 August 1576. He was the only victim of the Venice plague to be given a church burial.
Immediately after Titian’s own death, his son and assistant Orazio died of the same epidemic. His sumptuous mansion was plundered during the plague by thieves.
