"Oil On Panel "
Superb oil on panel "Leda and the swan" 18th time, 19th frame in gilded wood with leaf. According to mythology, over the course of Ovid's Metamorphoses, a mishmash of Greek legends, a veritable catalog of the many facets of sexuality emerges. The author of L'Art d'aimer also composed an erotic initiation manual. Constantly published, the Metamorphoses plunge into the loves of the gods and camouflage in an extraordinary way the representation of the sexual act. Zeus, in love with Leda, the wife of the King of Sparta, turns into a swan to seduce her. From their loves will be generated four children, Castor, Pollux, Hélène and Clytemnestre, who will turn the future of Greece upside down ... Under the artists' brush, Leda appears naked, coiled and wavy like the swan's neck. As for the bird, it rolls up and nestles in the young woman's lap; enterprising, he explores with his beak sometimes the mouth, sometimes the breasts, sometimes the belly of the beloved. Note the transparency of the skin, the grace of Leda and the swan, unsigned painting on the front but illegible trace of signature on the back of the panel. Dimensions without frame 33.5 cm wide by 26.8 cm high without frame, with the frame 43 cm wide by 36 cm high. For any shipment to France 50 €. For the international consult me.
