"Clothed Maja" and "Nude Maja" were and remain the artist's most famous works. There was an argue for a long time about who served as an artist model for these paintings. There is the information that Goya himself, answering the questions of the tribunal of the Inquisition, said that the model was the Duchess of Alba. But now some researchers argue that Goya was posed by different women, with Maha dressed written earlier and more realistic. The work is amazing with the wonderful craftsmanship of painting. Surprisingly subtle shades of silvery white dress with a pinkish belt, golden bolero and greenish pillows fascinate the audience.
On this picture the audience can see a beautiful profile of a young girl. Elegant silhouette, written with accuracy and attention to every detail, reference to the traditional portraits. However, Botticelli succeeded in psychologizing his image even in the framework of a rather strict tradition. Having created from his model some ideal image, the painter still encrypted references to the person of the that woman. You just need to be able to recognize them. The heroine glances attentive and serious. For the sake of justice, it should be noted that the personality of the heroine of Botticelli's picture is the guesswork of art critics of a later period, since the master himself never mentioned what his muses-inspirers were called.
The meaning of the picture "Venus and Mars" of Botticelli is that the power of love can defeat the power of a warrior. Noisy little faunas from the retinue of Bacchus, the god of wine, are depicted by Botticelli according to an ancient tradition: with goat legs, horns and tails. While painting "Venus and Mars" Botticelli was inspired by classical patterns. The picture "Venus and Mars" had a tremendous success among contemporaries, and Botticelli only once again demonstrated his unprecedented talent, giving us the most beautiful piece of art.
Performed in the genre of mythological painting, this picture was a reflection of the artist's thoughts about the weakness of human life. In this picture in the first time appeared the dramatic nature of Caravaggio's creativity. There is no doubt that "Sick Bacchus" is a self-portrait. Nevertheless, the realism of this painting impresses the audience. The image seems tangible, the grapes are so natural that it seems possible to touch them. The interesting thing in this canvas is that the ancient Roman god is portrayed as a left-handed person - because Caravaggio drew himself, looking at the image in the mirror, his Bacchus keeps a bunch of grapes, not in the right but in the left hand.
16. A young man is a genre character, a simple guy from the people. But, looking at him, you feel his reality and plasticity, the light that he emits. This is the reality of existence for every artist; the dream is to create a living image, to transfer a piece of life in his works, to breathe a spark of heat into them. You feel the heat when you look at this picture. Caravaggio in his picture divides the world into two parts, the real world and the mirror world. These two parts help us to understand as deeply as possible and see all the things that surround us. Looking at the events, as usual, we do not notice much, which can be seen in an inverted state. This view helps to see and understand some of the features of things more deeply.
