"Vis à Vis" / Tuscany Cities in Drawings by Iz Maglow (1/4)

" ...in all those drawn studies about spatial situations architectures of the Renaissance play a major part. It's great, that first of all, the young draftsman let himself fall back in form and subject, because this enriches the spontaneous drawing approach and the completion enormously, - especially in opposing (vis-à-vis) of architecture (this in a liberty of symbolism) with those repeatedly returning creatures, seen in profile, who nearly consist of their head only and who oppose or meet each other..." wrote Günter Wirth in Stuttgarter Zeitung in 1984 about Iz Maglow and his "Vis a Vis" drawings.

Everywhere you meet the heritage of Medici, spread over these cities like chess-men on their chess-board. Until now these relicts delivered the glamour of their century ... and may outlast the future?

Two different individuals are discussing their controversy about a scene in one of Massagio's wall paintings. The art work's structure already filled up their heads and their differences seem to change their surroundings, too.

One city, two "DAVID" (besides thousands of copies). The two stand so close, that they could smell each other, if there would not be that busy city in between.
