Diane Bodart: Los borrones de Ticiano: la macchia veneziana nelle sue traduzioni spagnole

Da Venezia alla Spagna, da Tiziano a Velázquez, la pittura di colorito porta nel cuore della sua matrice il difetto della macchia – borrón o mancha in castigliano. Zona informe di colore che insudicia, deturpa e nasconde la superficie sottostante, la macchia è nondimeno riscattata dal discorso sulle arti per essere potenzialmente creatrice di forme. In questo registro tuttavia, il confine tra pittura perfetta e cattiva pittura è estremamente esile: mentre Tiziano e Velázquez vengono lodati per l'illusionismo miracoloso della loro pennellata, i loro seguaci sono biasimati come imbrattatori, empastadores, manchantes. In base all'analisi delle implicazioni semantiche e tecniche della traduzione della macchia veneziana nel borrón spagnolo, la relazione indagherà nei suoi processi trasformativi l'interpretazione del modello di Tiziano in Spagna.
