from nowhere with love

101.Joseph Brodsky

Because one’s love is greater than oneself.

Less than one.

May 24th, 2015. Joseph Brodsky would  have been 75 today. And today the Joseph Brodsky Museum was inaugurated in St. Petersburg thanks to the Joseph Brodsky Memorial Fellowship Fund.

In loving memory watch:

And Venice is there, if you have to fast forward,  from: 31′:14” and at the end.

The foundation sponsors sojourns in Italy for promising Russian artists in collaboration with the American Academy in Rome, a dream of Joseph’s that is now become a reality. Consider your support.

The only portrait of Joseph in his lifetime was painted in 1986  in Venice by his friend Robert Morgan to whom “Watermark”, a captivating book about Venice, is dedicated.
