The above canvas dated c1570 was painted by the renaissance artist tiziano vecellio (titian) by using the technique of oil painting the canvas measures 240cm x 186cm the fall of man is a vintage renaissance fine art religious portrait painting featuring adam and eve in the garden of eden.
The intention of titian in his venus of urbino is a much-debated topic, whether or not the painting is an allegory for lust or a symbol of faithfulness in marital love is undecided one thing is definite titian’s venus of urbino is a staple of the female nude and it has influenced a multitude of artists.
Titian's venus with a mirror, c 1555, is an early example of venus depicted at her toilet with cupid in this painting, venus sits upright in this painting, venus sits upright the portrayal of nudes was officially discouraged in 17th-century spain. In titian’s venus of urbino, the nude subject seems to defer to the gaze of the viewer, by offering her body and sexuality through her demeanor and gestures part of the forcefulness of manet’s olympia is that the nude subject takes the gaze back from the beholder, by staring directly at the viewer.
As an example, i'm citing titian's venus of urbino, which is a painting done in 1538 while the subject is nude, the painting would have been successful if she were not nude, as it is artfully posed and executed.
