With Neo-Urban Classic Series I go in search of temporal and cultural space in which everything seems to make sense ..
where it is possible to meld the classic beauty with the anti-aesthetic.
My intention is to highlight the inherent contradictions of the human condition with the elitist connotation and popular culture.
Agnolo di Cosimo di Mariano, known as Bronzino (1503-1572) was the finest Florentine Mannerist painter, sought-after portrait painter of the Medici court.
"Allegory Of Lust or Of Triumph Of Venus" ( "Lust Unmasked"), painted from 1540 to 1545, a priceless masterpiece by Bronzino, was donated by Cosimo de 'Medici to the French king Francis I, sure to satisfy his aesthetic criterion but also his libertine figurative appetite.
The painting has the delicacy and the infinite virtuosity of Bronzino and combines technical unattainable with a well-kept design and rich in details. The subject is all the more enigmatic and many have given different interpretations to the point that the assigned titles seem the result of opposing views: "Allegory Of Triumph Of Venus" and "Lust Unmasked".
It 'a fact that lust under dominates as well as overt in the kiss, is fully expressed in the grip of Venus Breast by Cupid where you can taste real lust, among other incestuous, because Cupid is his son.
