Venus. Feminity and Old Master Paintings
Wednesday, September 9, 2015 - Thursday, December 31, 2015
Piazza Riforma 2 6900 Lugano Switzerland
For our third appointment with "Sentire l'Arte" we have chosen the theme of Venus, understood symbolically as the representation of femininity and seduction in paintings by Old Masters. Through different subjects, drawn from literature, mythology and the social life of the period, the five pictures exhibited here all share a female protagonist, whose charms and power to attract underlie the stories in which the figures take form.
