Patrick Laumond - MetaHism
The Paradox Of The Verticality - (Archetype)
Patrick Laumond is a French artist who lives and works in Paris.
He is the founder of MetaHism.
The MetaHism is an artistic movement that expresses and embodies the human mind as a meta-paradigm.
This Art of the thought, connects a global vision of the visible and invisible events simultaneously.
META, because expressing the Whole, ISM as the concept and universal suffix, which we find in all the movements and H, eight letter of the alphabet, (letter of the infinity, ∞, lemniscate) separating and unifying.

Ritratto di Lorenzo de’ medici, detto Il Magnifico (1533-1534) by Giorgio Vasari
Ottaviano de’ Medici probably commissioned Vasari to paint this commemorative portrait of Lorenzo the Magnficent for Duke Alessandro in 1533 or 1534. It is typologically akin to the Portrait of Cosimo the Elder by Pontorno, which was in Ottaviano’s collection at the time. The symbolism and the inscriptions which appear in the painting celebrate both the concept of virtue overcoming vice and Lorenzo de’ Medici as a man of virtue, a worthy heir to his descendants.

Portrait of Marie Adélaïde of France dressed in the Turkish style (1753) by Jean-Étienne Liotard
An inscription on the back of the painting allows us to identify the subject as Marie Adélaïde, daughter of Louis XV and sister of Marie Louise Élisabeth, Duchess of Parma. Liotard, a portrait artist of Swiss origin but who trained in France, lived in Constantinople and in Vienna. He often portrayed his sitters in exotic costumes.

Sacra famiglia con San Giovannino ‘Tondo Doni’ (1507) by Michelangelo Buonarroti
Frame: Francesco di Domenico del Tasso, probably designed by Michelangelo himself.
Long considered to have been commissioned by wealthy Florentine merchant Agnolo Doni for his wedding in 1504, but more likely to be connected with the birth of his firstborn daughter Maria in 1507, tondo is Michelangelo’s only recorded panel painting. The figures of the Holy Family, twisting on a vertical axis in the manner of Hellenistic sculpture display a plastic unity that imparts a certain sculptural quality to the group. Saint John the Baptist, looking on from behind a low wall, links the scene to the background in which a group of young male nudes adopt poses derived in part from Ancient statuary. The tondo was purchased by the Medici in 1594 and hung in the Tribune.

Relief with dancing Maenads (late 1st century BC)
The theme of dancing Maenads is known from over fifty marble replicas of the Roman era, all of them harking back to a late 5th century BC prototype attributed to a sculptor of the school of Callimachus. It has been suggested that the original was intended to adorn a munument erected in Athens in 406 BC to celebrate the victory of Euripides’s Baccahant in theatrical competitions. This relief, which very accurately reproduces three of the six Maenads on the Athenian original, may be attributed to a neo-Attic workshop. The finished work was extensively decorated with gold leaf (used for the female figures’ hair, jewellery and thyrsus).
