Oil / Canvas, Laid down on Wood Paneling, “Sleeping Venus- The Dresden Venus”
This unsigned, early 20th c. student museum copy of Giorgione’s unfinished masterpiece residing in the Dresden Museum was painted c. 1510. It is almost universally accepted as a work started by the Venetian and finished by Titian after Giorgione’s untimely death.
Giorgione’s obsession with the human natural form is evident in this magnificient nude whose curves mirror those of the background is one of this artist’s most innovative accomplishments. It certainly influenced artists following such as Rubens, Titian, Ingres and Velazquez, and most certainly the 20th c. genius Freida Kahlo.
