Titian: Venus and Cupid with a Lute Participant, c 1555-65
A photograph can’t do justice to this portray – it’s important to be there within the gallery to get an eyeful of molten color, a cloud of iridescent life because the goddess Venus imposes her existence on the area round her. Titian’s means to make our bodies actual is past clarification. Technically it appears easy sufficient – his use of oil paint on canvas in luscious layers lets him seize the human kind with delicate spontaneity. However there’s a magic in his brush that no different painter has ever rivalled. Sure, it is a feminine nude. However is she objectified? We take a look at her in awe, sharing the lute participant’s reverent amazement at this incarnation of the divine.
