Laocoonte és una obra d'El Greco, realitzada a l'oli sobre tela entre 1608 i 1614, durant el seu darrer període toledà. In 2005 Lynn Catterson argued that the sculpture was a forgery created by. Die Laokoon-Gruppe in den Vatikanischen Museen ist die bedeutendste Darstellung des Todeskampfs Laokoons und seiner Söhne in der bildenden Kunst. It is very likely the same statue praised in the highest terms by the main Roman writer on art, Pliny the Elder. [63] Furthermore, he attacked the composition on naturalistic grounds, contrasting the carefully studied human anatomy of the restored figures with the unconvincing portrayal of the snakes:[63]. Ristorante Laocoonte, Sperlonga: 315 Bewertungen - bei Tripadvisor auf Platz 26 von 77 von 77 Sperlonga Restaurants; mit 4/5 von Reisenden bewertet. [34] The whole question remains the subject of academic debate. Via Margutta 53/B. [15] In this second group of versions, the snakes were sent by Poseidon[16] and in the first by Poseidon and Athena, or Apollo, and the deaths were interpreted by the Trojans as proof that the horse was a sacred object. A pesar de las diferentes hipótesis que se han barajado, lo más probable es que fuera realizado en el siglo I d. C. para un mecenas romano, por los artistas Agesandro, Polidoro y Atanadoro, de la Escuela de Rodas. [17] Pietro Aretino thought so, praising the group in 1537: ...the two serpents, in attacking the three figures, produce the most striking semblances of fear, suffering and death. La notizia giunse anche nel palazzo vaticano, dove «... fu detto al Papa, che in una vigna presso a S. Maria Maggiore s' era trovato certe statue molto belle. Pliny's description of Laocoön as "a work to be preferred to all that the arts of painting and sculpture have produced"[57] has led to a tradition which debates this claim that the sculpture is the greatest of all artworks. Although mostly in excellent condition for an excavated sculpture, the group is missing several parts, and analysis suggests that it was remodelled in ancient times and has undergone a number of restorations since it was excavated. [40] The age of the altar used as a seat by Laocoön remains uncertain. Barkan, 1–4, with English text; Chronology has the Italian, at 1567, the date of the letter. [7], Pliny attributes the work, then in the palace of Emperor Titus, to three Greek sculptors from the island of Rhodes: Agesander, Athenodoros and Polydorus, but does not give a date or patron. In 1940 Clement Greenberg adapted the concept for his own essay entitled Towards a Newer Laocoön in which he argued that abstract art now provided an ideal for artists to measure their work against. [69], Laocoön by William Blake, with the texts transcribed, Ancient sculpture excavated in Rome in 1506 and displayed in the Vatican, Clark, 219–221 was an early proponent of this view; see also Barkan, caption opp. Non vi fidate, Troiani.Sia ciò che vuole, temo i Dànai, e più quand'offrono doni.». It had been the subject of a tragedy, now lost, by Sophocles and was mentioned by other Greek writers, though the events around the attack by the serpents vary considerably. Boardman, 199 says "about 200 BC"; Spivey, 26, 36, feels it may have been commissioned by Titus. Le linee generali della vicenda di L. e dei suoi figli sono ben note attraverso il secondo … Di suttrattu cumparsi un grecu chjamatu Sinone, u quali cunvinsi u rè ch'è u cavaddu era segnu di paci, ed era in veru un rigalu. This group was made in concert by three most eminent artists, Agesander, Polydorus, and Athenodorus, natives of Rhodes. Hist. In either case, it was probably commissioned for the home of a wealthy Roman, possibly of the Imperial family. Near the end of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge self-describes "making a perfect Laocoön of himself with his stockings" in his hurry to dress on Christmas morning. [19], The style of the work is agreed to be that of the Hellenistic "Pergamene baroque" which arose in Greek Asia Minor around 200 BC, and whose best known undoubtedly original work is the Pergamon Altar, dated c. 180–160 BC, and now in Berlin. Die Casa di Laocoonte („Haus des Laokoon“) ist ein Haus in der im Jahr 79 n. Chr. Such is the case with the Laocoön, for example, in the palace of the Emperor Titus, a work that may be looked upon as preferable to any other production of the art of painting or of [bronze] statuary. Il mito di Laocoonte L'arte figurativa: Lessing vs Winckelmann Johann Joachim Winckelmann: Bibliotecario Storico dell'arte Archeologo tedesco ''Egli non leva nessun grido terribile, come del suo Laocoonte canta Virgilio; l'apertura della bocca non lo permette; è piuttosto un As yet it had no base, which was not added until 1511, and from various prints and drawings from the time the older son appears to have been completely detached from the rest of the group. [14] In other versions he was killed for having had sex with his wife in the temple of Poseidon, or simply making a sacrifice in the temple with his wife present. "Chronology": Frischer, Bernard, Digital Sculpture Project: Laocoon. "Volpe and Parisi": Digital Sculpture Project: Laocoon. A competition was announced for new parts to complete the composition, but there were no entries. Laocoonte nel Palazzo dei Grandi Maestri. [26] Pliny states that it was located in the palace of the emperor Titus, and it is possible that it remained in the same place until 1506 (see "Findspot" section below). Stewart, Andrew W. (1996), "Hagesander, Athanodorus and Polydorus", in Hornblower, Simon, Oxford Classical Dictionary, Oxford: Oxford University Press. English Translation of “Laocoonte” | The official Collins Italian-English Dictionary online. [39], When the statue was discovered, Laocoön's right arm was missing, along with part of the hand of one child and the right arm of the other, and various sections of snake. Die Skulptur der Bildhauer Hagesandros, Polydoros und Athanadoros aus Rhodos ist nur in einer 1,84 Meter hohen Marmorkopie aus der zweiten Hälfte des 1. Λαοκόων) Mitico sacerdote troiano, figlio di Antenore, addetto al culto di Apollo Timbreo, marito di Antiope con la quale si unì davanti alla statua del dio, attirandosi così la sua collera. If the Laocoön group was already in the location of the later findspot by the time Pliny saw it, it might have arrived there under Maecenas or any of the emperors. John Ruskin disliked the sculpture and compared its "disgusting convulsions" unfavourably with work by Michelangelo, whose fresco of The Brazen Serpent, on a corner pendentive of the Sistine Chapel, also involves figures struggling with snakes – the fiery serpents of the Book of Numbers. [59], Johann Goethe said the following in his essay, Upon the Laocoon "A true work of art, like a work of nature, never ceases to open boundlessly before the mind. For whatever knowledge of the human frame there may be in the Laocoön, there is certainly none of the habits of serpents. [24][25] It is noteworthy that Pliny does not address this issue explicitly, in a way that suggests "he regards it as an original". It has often been interpreted as a satire on the clumsiness of Bandinelli's copy, or as a commentary on debates of the time around the similarities between human and ape anatomy. Jahrhunderts v. C… See also Richard Brilliant. Era una de las casi cien piezas que Carlos IV adquirió al conde de Paroy, que las había acumulado procedentes de compras en ciudades italianas o como consecuencia de la dispersión de buena parte de la colección real francesa tras la caída de la monarquía de Luis XVI y María Antonieta. [66], The first document records De Fredis' purchase of a vineyard of about 1.5 hectares from a convent for 135 ducats on 14 November 1504, exactly 14 months before the finding of the statue. He argues that the artists could not realistically depict the physical suffering of the victims, as this would be too painful.

The story of Laocoön, a Trojan priest, came from the Greek Epic Cycle on the Trojan Wars, though it is not mentioned by Homer. It was on display when the new Musée Central des Arts, later the Musée Napoléon, opened at the Louvre in November 1800. It is very likely the same statue praised in the highest terms by the main Roman writer on art, Pliny the Elder. I climbed down to where the statues were when immediately my father said, "That is the Laocoön, which Pliny mentions". [42], According to Vasari, in about 1510 Bramante, the Pope's architect, held an informal contest among sculptors to make replacement right arms, which was judged by Raphael, and won by Jacopo Sansovino. I Troiani, felici par u priculu scampatu, trascinàni u cavaddu à l'internu di i mura, nonustanti Laocoonte è a prufitessa Cassandra avissini cunsiddatu d'ùn fà lu micca. By August the group was placed for public viewing in a niche in the wall of the brand new Belvedere Garden at the Vatican, now part of the Vatican Museums, which regard this as the start of their history. Research published in 2010 has recovered two documents in the municipal archives (badly indexed, and so missed by earlier researchers), which have established a much more precise location for the find: slightly to the east of the southern end of the Sette Sale, the ruined cistern for the successive imperial baths at the base of the hill by the Colosseum. In 1957 the museum decided that this arm – bent, as Michelangelo had suggested – had originally belonged to this Laocoön, and replaced it. p 1, Janson etc. [44], In 1906 Ludwig Pollak, archaeologist, art dealer and director of the Museo Barracco, discovered a fragment of a marble arm in a builder's yard in Rome, close to where the group was found. Where. Ambiguous due to a quirk of Tuscan Italian, "everyone started to eat lunch". [11] The more open, planographic composition along a plane, used in the restoration of the Laocoön group, has been interpreted as "apparently the result of serial reworkings by Roman Imperial as well as Renaissance and modern craftsmen". 3, sculptures at Tiberius's villa at Sperlonga, An Ancient Masterpiece Or a Master's Forgery?, New York Times, April 18, 2005, "An Annotated Chronology of the “Laocoon” Statue Group", University of Virginia's Digital Sculpture Project, "Outscreaming the Laocoön: Sensation, Special Affects, and the Moving Image", Laocoonte: variazioni sul mito, con una Galleria delle fonti letterarie e iconografiche su Laocoonte, a cura del Centro studi classicA, "La Rivista di Engramma" n. 50, luglio/settembre 2006, Nota sul ciclo di Sperlonga e sulle relazioni con il Laoocoonte Vaticano, a cura del Centro studi classicA, "La Rivista di Engramma" n. 50. luglio/settembre 2006, Nota sulle interpretazioni del passo di Plinio, Nat. [55] Over 15 drawings of the group made by Rubens in Rome have survived, and the influence of the figures can be seen in many of his major works, including his Descent from the Cross in Antwerp Cathedral.[56]. [58] The most influential contribution to the debate, Gotthold Ephraim Lessing's essay Laocoon: An Essay on the Limits of Painting and Poetry, examines the differences between visual and literary art by comparing the sculpture with Virgil's verse. Pliny said the Laocoön was in his time at the palace of Titus (qui est in Titi imperatoris domo), then heir to his father Vespasian,[68] but the location of Titus's residence remains unknown; the imperial estate of the Gardens of Maecenas may be a plausible candidate. Laocoonte (Λαοκόων ) era, según la mitología griega, un sacerdote troyano de Apolo o de Poseidon. [53] A woodcut, probably after a drawing by Titian, parodied the sculpture by portraying three apes instead of humans. Titian appears to have had access to a good cast or reproduction from about 1520, and echoes of the figures begin to appear in his works, two of them in the Averoldi Altarpiece of 1520–22. [63] He invited contrast between the "meagre lines and contemptible tortures of the Laocoon" and the "awfulness and quietness" of Michelangelo, saying "the slaughter of the Dardan priest" was "entirely wanting" in sublimity. Laocoonte (gr. The most unusual intervention in the debate, William Blake's annotated print Laocoön, surrounds the image with graffiti-like commentary in several languages, written in multiple directions. A large serpent never wants to bite, it wants to hold, it seizes therefore always where it can hold best, by the extremities, or throat, it seizes once and forever, and that before it coils, following up the seizure with the twist of its body round the victim, as invisibly swift as the twist of a whip lash round any hard object it may strike, and then it holds fast, never moving the jaws or the body, if its prey has any power of struggling left, it throws round another coil, without quitting the hold with the jaws; if Laocoön had had to do with real serpents, instead of pieces of tape with heads to them, he would have been held still, and not allowed to throw his arms or legs about. The youth embraced in the coils is fearful; the old man struck by the fangs is in torment; the child who has received the poison, dies. Since Michelangelo Buonarroti was always to be found at our house, my father having summoned him and having assigned him the commission of the pope’s tomb, my father wanted him to come along, too. See Beard, 210, who is highly sceptical of the identification, noting that ‘the new arm does not directly join with the father's broken shoulder (a wedge of plaster has had to be inserted); it appears to be on a smaller scale and in a slightly differently coloured marble’. The central figure of Laocoön served as loose inspiration for the Indian in Horatio Greenough's The Rescue (1837–1850) which stood before the east facade of the United States Capitol for over 100 years.[62]. [38], In July 1798 the statue was taken to France in the wake of the French conquest of Italy, though the replacement parts were left in Rome. : Michelangelo and the Laocoön Group.

The first time I was in Rome when I was very young, the pope was told about the discovery of some very beautiful statues in a vineyard near Santa Maria Maggiore. [20] Here the figure of Alcyoneus is shown in a pose and situation (including serpents) which is very similar to those of Laocoön, though the style is "looser and wilder in its principles" than the altar.[21]. B&B Laocoonte được khách của chúng tôi đánh giá là "Tuyệt vời". A different reconstruction was proposed by Seymour Howard, to give "a more cohesive, baroque-looking and diagonally-set pyramidal composition", by turning the older son as much as 90°, with his back to the side of the altar, and looking towards the frontal viewer rather than at his father. [49], The discovery of the Laocoön made a great impression on Italian artists and continued to influence Italian art into the Baroque period. Ihren Namen erhielt sie nach einem dort befindlichen Wandbild mit der Darstellung des Laokoon. Era un veggente e gran sacerdote di Poseidone, o, secondo alcune fonti, di Apollo. Questa pagina è stata modificata per l'ultima volta il 20 nov 2020 alle 15:23. bei einem Ausbruch des Vesuv verschütteten Stadt Pompeji. [27][28] The phrase translated above as "in concert" (de consilii sententia) is regarded by some as referring to their commission rather than the artists' method of working, giving in Nigel Spivey's translation: " [the artists] at the behest of council designed a group...", which Spivey takes to mean that the commission was by Titus, possibly even advised by Pliny among other savants. The second document, from 1527, makes it clear that there is now a house on the property, and clarifies the location; by then De Fredis was dead and his widow rented out the house. The group was rapidly depicted in prints as well as small models, and became known all over Europe. El Laocoonte del broncista florentino acabó en la colección regia española en 1803. It is speculated that De Fredis began building the house soon after his purchase, and as the group was reported to have been found some four metres below ground, at a depth unlikely to be reached by normal vineyard-digging operations, it seems likely that it was discovered when digging the foundations for the house, or possibly a well for it. The statue of Laocoön and His Sons, also called the Laocoön Group (Italian: Gruppo del Laocoonte), has been one of the most famous ancient sculptures ever since it was excavated in Rome in 1506 and placed on public display in the Vatican,[2] where it remains. Johann Joachim Winkelmann (1717–1768) wrote about the paradox of admiring beauty while seeing a scene of death and failure. Enciclopedia della mitologia 2ª edizione, Pag. [50] Raphael used the face of Laocoön for his Homer in his Parnassus in the Raphael Rooms, expressing blindness rather than pain.[51]. [22], It is generally accepted that this is the same work as is now in the Vatican. However, some scholars see the group as a depiction of the scene as described by Virgil. Many still show the arm in the outstretched position, but the copy in Rhodes has been corrected. In Pliny's survey of Greek and Roman stone sculpture in his encyclopedic Natural History (XXXVI, 37), he says: ....in the case of several works of very great excellence, the number of artists that have been engaged upon them has proved a considerable obstacle to the fame of each, no individual being able to engross the whole of the credit, and it being impossible to award it in due proportion to the names of the several artists combined. "[45], In the 1980s the statue was dismantled and reassembled, again with the Pollak arm incorporated. [29], The same three artists' names, though in a different order (Athenodoros, Agesander, and Polydorus), with the names of their fathers, are inscribed on one of the sculptures at Tiberius's villa at Sperlonga (though they may predate his ownership),[30] but it seems likely that not all the three masters were the same individuals. Il gruppo scultoreo del Laocoonte e i suoi figli, noto anche semplicemente come Gruppo del Laocoonte, è una scultura in marmo (h 242 cm) conservata nel Museo Pio-Clementino dei Musei Vaticani, nella Città del Vaticano. [12] It is on display in the Museo Pio-Clementino, a part of the Vatican Museums. Ci sono modelli di tifoso perfettamente sovrapponibili ai romanisti, ai napoletani o a chissà chi e altri che sono completamente atipici, c'è chi non sopporta le critiche alla squadra e chi sparerebbe a zero su Maradona che col destro è meno forte che col sinistro. Some scholars used to think that honorific inscriptions found at Lindos in Rhodes dated Agesander and Athenodoros, recorded as priests, to a period after 42 BC, making the years 42 to 20 BC the most likely date for the Laocoön group's creation. Über 100.000 Englische Übersetzungen von Italienische Wörtern und Ausdrücken In style it is considered "one of the finest examples of the Hellenistic baroque" and certainly in the Greek tradition,[8] but it is not known whether it is an original work or a copy of an earlier sculpture, probably in bronze, or made for a Greek or Roman commission. La Lazio si discute e si ama, oppure no. LAOCOONTE (Λαοκόων, Laocŏon). ĵaŭdo, 11 Junio 2020 Thursday, 11 June 2020 Antonio De Salvo. The two versions have rather different morals: Laocoön was either punished for doing wrong, or for being right.[8]. Michelangelo suggested that the missing right arms were originally bent back over the shoulder. In 1910 the critic Irving Babbit used the title The New Laokoon: An Essay on the Confusion of the Arts for an essay on contemporary culture at the beginning of the 20th century. [33] Altogether eight "signatures" (or labels) of an Athenodoros are found on sculptures or bases for them, five of these from Italy. - Secondo la tradizione più antica doveva essere sacerdote di Apollo, secondo la più recente sacerdote di Nettuno o nominato a far le veci del vero e proprio sacerdote di Nettuno, ucciso dai Troiani dopo l'arrivo dei Greci, che egli non era stato capace d'impedire mediante i suoi sacrifizî. [65] An inscribed plaque of 1529 in the church of Santa Maria in Aracoeli records the burial of De Fredis and his son there, covering his finding of the group but giving no occupation. Deutsch-Italienisch-Übersetzungen für Laocoonte im Online-Wörterbuch dict.cc (Italienischwörterbuch). 24-nov-2017 - L'entusiasmo della scoperta Il 14 gennaio 1506 un eccezionale ritrovamento fece eco su tutta Roma. Das Werk wurde bereits von Plinius dem Älteren besonders gelobt[1] und erlangte nach seiner Wiederentdeckung 1506 große Bedeutung in der europäischen Geisteswelt. In 1725–27 Agostino Cornacchini added a section to the younger son's arm, and after 1816 Antonio Canova tidied up the group after their return from Paris, without being convinced by the correctness of the additions but wishing to avoid a controversy. The most famous account of these is now in Virgil's Aeneid (see the Aeneid quotation at the entry Laocoön), but this dates from between 29 and 19 BC, which is possibly later than the sculpture. Puso una lanza en el vientre del caballo y sonó de metal, de lo que nadie se dió cuenta. The influence of the Laocoön, as well as the Belvedere Torso, is evidenced in many of Michelangelo's later sculptures, such as the Rebellious Slave and the Dying Slave, created for the tomb of Pope Julius II. As soon as it was visible everyone started to draw (or "started to have lunch"),[37] all the while discoursing on ancient things, chatting as well about the ones in Florence. 361, Dizionario di mitologia classica, Pag. Das Haus wurde 1875 ausgegraben. See figures in Howard for photos and diagram of the dis-assembled pieces, Howard, 422 and 417 quoted in turn. [23] It is now very often thought that the three Rhodians were copyists, perhaps of a bronze sculpture from Pergamon, created around 200 BC. There are many copies of the statue, including a well-known one in the Grand Palace of the Knights of St. John in Rhodes. Pertenece, por tanto, a la última etapa de la escultura … Era un veggente e gran sacerdote di Poseidone e apollo Influenza culturale Storia La scoperta del Laocoonte ebbe un enorme risonanza tra gli artisti e gli scultori ed influenzò Barkan, 13–16; H.

According to Paolo Liverani: "Remarkably, despite the lack of a critical section, the join between the torso and the arm was guaranteed by a drill hole on one piece which aligned perfectly with a corresponding hole on the other. The snakes are depicted as both biting and constricting, and are probably intended as venomous, as in Virgil. Era un veggente e gran sacerdote di Poseidone, o, secondo alcune fonti, di Apollo . [52] A bronze casting, made for François I at Fontainebleau from a mold taken from the original under the supervision of Primaticcio, is at the Musée du Louvre. Laocoonte cercò di accorrere in loro aiuto ma subì la stessa sorte. The 100 drawings shown in the exhibition are here presented as a fist choice to give an idea of the artist’s career, but the study of them is only an example of a larger cataloguing work that the Galleria del Laocoonte intends to produce in the near future. EL LAOCOONTE… El Laocoonte es uno de los conjuntos escultóricos más impresionantes de toda la Historia del Arte universal. Noting a stylistic similarity to the Laocoön group he presented it to the Vatican Museums: it remained in their storerooms for half a century. The fine white marble used is often thought to be Greek, but has not been identified by analysis. : Il catalogo, con splendide foto di Giovanni Ricci Novara, è edito dall'Erma di Bretschneider: > Laocoonte. The names may have recurred across generations, a Rhodian habit, within the context of a family workshop (which might well have included the adoption of promising young sculptors). Then they dug the hole wider so that they could pull the statue out. Providing accommodation with free WiFi, air conditioning and TV, B&B Laocoonte is located 1.2 miles from Vatican Museums and 1.2 miles from St Peter's Square. The area remained mainly agricultural until the 19th century, but is now entirely built up. [61] This reflects Blake's theory that the imitation of ancient Greek and Roman art was destructive to the creative imagination, and that Classical sculpture represented a banal naturalism in contrast to Judeo-Christian spiritual art. Laocoonte (in greco antico: Λαοκόων, Laokóōn; in latino: Laocoon), personaggio della mitologia greca, era un abitante di Troia, figlio di Antenore[1][2] (o di Capi, secondo altre versioni[3][4]). The figures are near life-size and the group is a little over 2 m in … I Troiani presero questo come un segno, tenendo così il cavallo tra le loro mura. [66] The extent of the grounds of Nero's Domus Aurea is now unclear, but they do not appear to have extended so far north or east, though the newly rediscovered findspot-location is not very far beyond them. «Aut haec in nostros fabricata est machina murosInspectura domos venturaque desuper urbi,Aut aliquis latet error: equo ne credite, Teucri.Quidquid id est, timeo Danaos et dona ferentes.», «Questa è macchina contro le nostre mura innalzata,e spierà le case, e sulla città graverà:un inganno v'è certo. Michelangelo is known to have been particularly impressed by the massive scale of the work and its sensuous Hellenistic aesthetic, particularly its depiction of the male figures. Il Papa comandò a un palafreniere: va, e dì a Giuliano da Sang… On connaît la caricature attribuée à Titien qui représente le Laocoon sous l’aspect de trois singes. [54] It has also been suggested that this woodcut was one of a number of Renaissance images that were made to reflect contemporary doubts as to the authenticity of the Laocoön Group, the 'aping' of the statue referring to the incorrect pose of the Trojan priest who was depicted in ancient art in the traditional sacrificial pose, with his leg raised to subdue the bull.
