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.
