    Venus Of Urbino

    • 326 Words
    • 2 Pages

    Olympia is a painting by Édouard Manet, first exhibited at the 1865 Paris Salon Manet depicts a nude woman positioned in a similar pose to Titian’s “Venus of Urbino” (1538) – however, instead of painting a goddess, he shows a high class prostitute, making it a mockery. The model, Victorine Meurent, was working at the time the painting was first exhibited, which may have led to a few blushes since a few of the men had likely met her before. The painting depicts a nude white woman lying on a bed with a black cat at her feet. The background displays a black female servant bringing her flowers. This image struck the viewers as an insult to the academic art tradition when it was first displayed. The narrative suggests that the women's frontal…

    Knowing that Manet has chosen to use Titans model for his painting, he leaves out a lot of the techniques titian makes his painting feel warm and inviting to the viewer. Titan paints Venus as a seductive enchantress of the nude. Making her appear warm and inviting and not overly bearing staring at the viewer, but hinting at the viewer to come in closer. Where Manet has painted his Olympia overbearing to the viewer, staring directly at the viewer and not making them feel invited to look. What I…

    While most of Titian's nudes in his Poesie series serve as idealized, eroticized figures, “The Rape of Europa” serves as a divergent example. Europa is not an idealized, simple, composition and instead complicates the Poesie narrative with her naturalism. I intend to look into the contradictory analysis of this painting and use my own visual analysis of the painting in the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum to come to my conclusion. Some of the contradictory elements I have found in this painting…
