Violon Éternel is imbued with chromatic musicalities, forms and rhythms reflecting sensitivity, beauty and femininity, values expressed by the symbolism of its compositional elements. The violin, with its airy, voluptuous and captivating musical tones, lifts us towards a mystical state. It moved and inspired the greatest musicians, painters, poets and writers, and touched the most sensitive beings since the Renaissance. The vase, with its shape, the grace of its curves and its function as a receptacle, is a feminine symbol containing the elixir of life. The flowers represent beauty, aesthetics, vitality, fertility, purity, spirituality and elevation.
Colours : Green symbolizes the regeneration and awakening of life. It is the colour of hope, strength, longevity and immortality. Red is the colour of passion and the principle of life. Bright red is the image of ardour and beauty, while dark red represents the mystery of life. Yellow is the warmest of colours. It symbolizes sacredness, the golden light, and eternity. In "Violon Éternel", the yellow surrounding the vase and the flowers expresses the sacred aspect of the woman.
In classical-modern art, the artwork is subject to a composition-rhetoric. There are several forms of compositions, the main ones being 1) the horizontal, 2) the classic diagonal, 3) the frontal diagonal, 4) the pyramidal, 5) the vertical, 6) the narrative, 7) the horizontal narrative, 8) the narrative horizontal and 9) the frontal horizontal, each carrying a deep iconographic sense.
The composition of the artwork shown here, Violon Éternel, is a frontal horizontal, made in post-Fauvism.
In a frontal horizontal composition, the protagonist element is placed at the edge of the composition, preceded by a minimal spatial entry. The elements are positioned vertically, but expand horizontally. When you want to express something of importance, you use the horizontal frontal. In this case : the symbol of femininity, vitality, sensitivity and spiritual transcendence which are preponderant.
Fauvism is an art movement whose evolution spread out only from 1903 to 1910, but which is the substrate of modern art. The word "fauve" is used for the first time by the art critic Louis Vauxcelles, during the Salon d'Automne of 1905 at the Grand Palais in Paris, who exclaimed: "Donatello among the wild beasts!" (with reference to the 2 sculptures in marble by Albert Marque in Renaissance style, standing among these Fauvist paintings), seeing the works of the painters, in pure and vivid colours on exhibition by Henri Matisse, André Derain, Albert Marquet, Maurice de Vlaminck, Kees Van Dongen, Charles Camoin and Jean Puy.
Fauvism expresses the sense of looking at oneself : ontos. (ref. definition of onto: Element, from the Greek ôn, ontos "being". Colour translates into a search for oneself. It is ontocolorism.
Fauvism art deconstructs nature to mould it according to the individuality of the painter. It is symbolized and exalted by colours. The space is combined by the chromatic exaltation and the eradication of perspective.
The eradication of perspective by raising the horizon line in the work is a way of expressing the present time (presentism). The truncation of some elements is a very important parameter, allowing to express the kinetics-temporal (movement in time), and kinetics-light effects (movement of light which becomes the subject). Hence, in the Maryse Casol painting Violon Éternel, the combination of movement, time and light, is the principal subject of the work.
The expressive power is created by the purification of the flat shapes, the exuberance of colour, and the simplicity of large deconstructed spaces.
