As it happens, the community of this blog, nicknamed “Binelik Atelier” has started a discourse on who might pose for the “Venus of Urbino”, should Titian be a 20th century painter.
I start my contribution from the axiom that what makes the Urbino Venus unique and classical is her ambivalence and unpredictability. We have to do in a sense with a naked Mona Lisa, only in this case the whole body is the protagonist of the posture, not just the mouth and the eyes.
This is Part I, as there are many Venus candidates for the 20th Century. Here we go!!!
Flirting – Are you looking at me sailor?
Seductive optimism rides the waves
(Pensive)…. where have the good times gone?
discretely intense, these eyes can direct you to murder all the way!
I want to share some bad thoughts…
I want to have a shower …
and then go to bed…
