about this painting:
ATTRACTION IN ART
Erotic art has a long history. Ever since the concept of intimacy and taboo on nudity appeared, it attracted people. The first examples of this genre in fine arts appear in the ancient times, and were becoming more and more popular every century.
However, erotic is still discussed from moral point of view. The majority of world confessions consider such art to be sinful, as well as many other religious systems of beliefs. Mostly, it is bodies of women, which are objectified, so it is also a subject of debate in feministic ideologies, especially nowadays.
They all maybe right, anyway, it is up to you to decide, what to think about such artistic works. Let us consider some examples from world’s history of art. They are certainly erotic, but also have an undeniable artistic value.
REVEALING SECRET NATURE
Some nude painted women in works of talented artists become symbols of generations. For example:
- The Three Graces
Rubens allows us to learn more about beauty ideals of his time. Greek and Ancient Rome mythologies often served him as inspiration. In the antiquity, nudity was not considered shameful. On the other hand, a beautiful body was something to be proud of.
We all recognize Rubens’s works easily as soon as we see plump red-haired women and muscular clumpy men. He was the most influential Baroque artist of all times, and this genre is a crystallization of redundancy, that is why you will never see an ugly thing or an anorexic person on his painting.
- The Venus of Urbino
This painting has always attracted attention of artists and researchers. Duke Guidobaldo ordered it for his personal collection. A legend says that the prototype for the image of Venus was his fiancée, there are others who believe that it was Titian’s beloved.
However, this painting is not only an early example of erotics but also a philosophical work, which states beauty and purity of an innocent soul by showing a naked body.
- Emotional Day
This contemporary artist is a world recognized master. In his painting, he tried to show deep emotions of a woman after a long day by showing her nude and insecure. Her partner is also nude, which symbolizes their openness and sincerity towards each other. His gentle care and support protect her from dangers and discomforts that she has to face every day.
