Wladimir Putin zaoferował milion dolarów National Gallery w Londynie za wykorzystanie portretu małżonków Arnolfinich pędzla Jana van Eycka. Premier Rosji, który będzie się ubiegał o prezydenturę w najbliższych wyborach, zapragnął przywołać w kampanii obraz, na którym znajduje się jego sobowtór – Giovanni di Nicolao Arnolfini, włoski kupiec z Lukki.

W oryginalnej wersji portretu obok kupca stoi Giovanna Cenani.  Premier postanowił wykupić prawa jedynie do wykorzystania wizerunku namalowanego przez Eycka mężczyzny, ponieważ żona pana Arnolfini nazbyt kojarzy się z Ludmiłą Aleksandrowną Putiną, z którą premier rzadko pokazuje się publicznie.

Na obrazie kupiec unosi prawą dłoń w powitalnym geście. Premier postanowił dostosować przekaz tego malowidła do własnych potrzeb i na billboardach pojawi się jako mocarz błogosławiący światu.

Bardziej wprawne oko zobaczy w zwierciadle zawieszonym na ścianie, kto wchodzi do kremlowskiego pałacu, by złożyć hołd wracającemu na tron Rosji Putinowi.

Premier zadbał również o to, by zainteresować Rosjan polityką zagraniczną. W zakładach bukmacherskich już można obstawiać kandydatów witających Putina. Czy znajdzie się wśród nich miejsce dla Polski? 😉


Obraz „Zaślubiny Arnolfinich” został namalowany w 1434 roku przez Jana van Eycka i znajduje się obecnie w National Gallery w Londynie. Wrócę do niego jeszcze kiedyś, by przybliżyć symbolikę obrazu.

Gdyby PR-owcy Putina choć trochę interesowali się historią sztuki, może zamiast na polowaniach i nartach pokazywaliby go w roli błogosławiącego światu mędrca,  skoro ma już swojego sobowtóra na jednym z najbardziej znanych obrazów piętnastowiecznego realizmu niderlandzkiego.

A tak, to możemy jedynie snuć domysły.

Czy nie są do siebie podobni? Fot. AFP

    Cinnamon reduces blood glucose levels, triglycerides and LDL cholesterol which can all add up to a great natural diabetic cure.
    This is especially significant if you are prone to avoiding breakfast, which results in the body feeling a significant need for sugar.
