Too candid classic picture that can confuse anyoneBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/article/too-candid-classic-picture-that-can-confuse-anyone.html
We used to accuse modern art in unprincipled and addiction to pornography. But whether innocent old classic paintings that are dear to the aesthetes and to connoisseurs of chastity? On closer inspection, among the paintings of well-known geniuses of painting you can find masterpieces with explicit subjects, able to bring out a modern, worldly-wise lovers of "strawberries". (Caution! Nude).
If we talk about the most indiscreet classic story, it deserved the palm will receive the ancient history about the proximity of the God Zeus and the beautiful Leda. According to legend, a resident of mount Olympus was to the girl incognito, in the guise of a Swan, but nevertheless managed to engage her in the relationship and even to breed.
In the last Millennium is not only lazy tried to portray the scene of copulation beauties with bird. Not passed this fate and great — hackneyed plot exploited Boucher, Michelangelo and even Leonardo. Francois Boucher in 1740 suggested most obscene interpretation of history with a demonstration of the anatomical features, which are usually shamefully drape.
Previously offered his vision of the great Michelangelo, who, though he avoided too much detail, but still could not resist and played a few straight during unnatural interspecies copulation.
Against this background the Leonardo da Vinci seems to be just an illustration to Pushkin's fairy tales for primary school children. On his canvas, everything has already happened and Leda with a bored face watching from demolished her eggs hatch into perfectly healthy toddlers.
We have this idyllic scene seems quite decent, but it was not always so. Paintings by old masters of the Renaissance was destroyed in the early eighteenth century, the elderly mistress of Louis XIV the Marquise de Maintenon as indecent. Today we can see all this corruption only through later copies.
French painter Suzanne Valadon created in the early XX century. It is known as the author of many important works of art, mainly glorifying the beauty of the female body in the most ordinary situations. Despite the abundance of naked bodies in the paintings of the artist, just one of the creations Valadon makes moralists serious debate.
The painting "the Abandoned doll" in our day might bring the author a serious problem with pedofillia, but Valadon has been lucky in 1938, so we can consider its creation a classic. The painting depicts a Nude young lady with burgeoning Breasts and children's hair bow.
History has preserved for posterity the description of this painting, but it is assumed that it depicts the farewell to the childhood. Woman with a towel, most likely, the brothel Keeper and the child prepare to meet the first client. The name of the picture gave lying on the floor doll, obviously, symbolizing the broken destiny. However, there are good souls who claim that depicts the mother, wiping his teenage daughter after bathing.
The great Dutch painter Peter Paul Rubens, famous for his beautiful paintings with heavy beauties, in 1618, presented to the audience his "Abduction of daughters of Leucippus". At first glance, between the characters takes place daring the fight without any sexual connotation.
But for those who are familiar with the Greek myth of the Dioscuri brothers, it is clear that naked blondes not joking. Second name masterpiece "the Rape of the daughters of Leucippus" accurately reflect the action in the picture.
In ancient history, the sons of Zeus and Leda (see the story of their strange birth above), castor and Pollux abducted the daughters of king Leucippus Hilaire and Phoebe and according to old tradition, bequeathed by his father, abused them. It all ended kind of bad — all dead.
If Rubens and Boucher can expect anything, it is discreet and inclined to religious subjects, Rembrandt, surprised. Although, in principle, its small but expertly executed drawing "the Monk in the cornfield" still resonates with spiritual themes.
In the center of the composition depicts a Catholic monk and a lady who engages in sin in the missionary position somewhere in the farmland. The piquancy of the plot is not even that the monk breaks his vow of chastity, and in approaching from the left man with the hammer, through which the evening's cease to be languid.
Painting by William etty, wearing modest neutral name, "Negligence Candaule", depicts a completely indecent story from the "History" of Herodotus. The full name of this painting, written in 1830, reveals all the ambiguity of the depicted scene: "Candal, king of Lydia, sneak shows his wife the gig to one of his servants, when she goes to bed."
It is difficult to say why the "father of history" decided to describe this poluprorocheski history in his work, but thanks to her we got a difficult to say even the most experienced sexologists the term candaulism. The essence of this sexual deviation is the need to demonstrate his naked partner to other people.
This is depicted etty in the picture. King Candaul secretly decided to show his wife Nisa, the bodyguard gig, but his plan was discovered by a woman. Nisa asked Giga to kill or her or husband, the pervert, and then Kandula cynically slaughtered in his bedroom.
With the paintings "Les demoiselles d'avignon" great artist Pablo Picasso begins his transition to cubism. It is known that the creation of paintings inspired by Paul Cezanne his work "bathers". Initially Picasso called the painting "the Philosophical brothel" and many believe that the Maestro has performed a scene from a brothel in Barcelona's Gothic quarter.
The painting depicts five naked ladies that are in cheeky poses are waiting for their customers. We thought long and hard about whether to include this work in a list of juicy paintings. Simply put, if depicted on canvas geometric wanton awaken in you immodest imagination, we have some bad news for you. But the words of the song will not throw out, and the plot, for 1907, is still very tacky.
Great picture of the French classic painting by Jean-Leon Gerome, written in 1866, depicts a scene on the Eastern slave market. A group of men in rich robes eyeing a naked slave, checking, apparently, its proper bite.
Himself Jerome, no doubt, knew a lot about the slave markets and their patrons, as adored by the East and not once have traveled to those places in search of inspiration. Contemporaries found "the Arab market slave-girls" is very calling and calling it the anthem of lustful dominance of men over women.
The great surrealist Salvador Dali loved indecent pictures and erotomania saves us a way of writing his paintings, notably distorting the plot. That work "the Great masturbator" is not so clear. Moreover, if not the name, no one would understand what this beautiful painting.
But be that as it may, explicit sexual innuendo in this painting is. The woman's face in the right part of the picture, almost reaching to the male codpiece, irritated contemporaries Gave and caused even condemnation. Well no one knows that portrayed the master of surrealism in the center of the canvas — perhaps there is going on the most unbridled debauchery.
Created in 1866 by Gustave Courbet painting with simple household storyline was not present more than 130 years because of excessive anatomical accuracy. Moreover, even as to surprise the visitors of the Museum, in principle, difficult to the picture the oversight of a separate security guard.
In 2013, appeared in the media good news — was found the second part of the picture, which shows the face of a model. A careful study of the author's biography and his inner circle allowed to find out the identity of the ladies. So, unshaven crotch proved to be the property of Joanna hiffernan, the mistress of one of the best students Courbet, James McNeill Whistler. Here's a touching story of the reunion.
This is not only in the history of painting work with a bright sexual overtones at all times classics loved to wrap something, quite in the spirit of our unfettered time.
