Museums and art galleries are full of images of women, naked and exquisitely dressed, realistic and overly idealized. Who are these attractive ladies – brides or prostitutes, criminals or heroines – and what can they tell us?
On this tour, you will get profound answers to this question. You will not just learn stories of heroines from famous paintings. We also try to discover what cultural attitudes these masterpieces convey.
Works by Titian and Bellini will explain why Diana is depicted naked and how this relates to the girls’ love of ponies and unicorns. In the collection of Venetian and Florentine paintings we will try to understand why Venetian courtesans look at us so proudly from their canvases, while saints, on the other hand, lower their eyes modestly.
Madonnas by Raphael and Perugino will explain to us how Holy Scripture affirmed moral standards through female pictorial images, and portraits of Spanish princesses by Velázquez will show us the depth of cut allowed to women in power (up to the present day).
This is an art tour ideal for those who want to look at timeless masterpieces from a new perspective.
