1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The private life of a masterpiece( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film tells the story of Gauguin and his painting "God's Child," a reinterpretation of the nativity scene in which he used his 14-year-old, pregnant Tahitian mistress as his model. The most unusual feature of the painting is the way that it presents Mary. Traditionally, decorum prevented Mary from being depicted as if she had really gone through the painful experience of labor, but Gauguin's Mary is clearly worn out from the process of giving birth. It was also extremely daring to show Mary partially naked in a Nativity scene

La Primavera by Sandro Botticelli( Visual )

Botticelli's allegorical masterpiece, painted in Florence probably in the 1480s, was one of the first large secular works since Greek and Roman times, and featured the first sensual female figures of the Renaissance in a city awash with pious Christian images. Why did Botticelli, whose previous art was confined to conventional Christian images and portraits of the wealthy and powerful, paint the ground-breaking La Primavera? This program explains how, in the Seventies, a painting, fixed above an ornamental day-bed, cited in a centuries-old inventory from a Medici house, was recognized as being La Primavera, shedding new light on its creation

The cause of a major scandal when it was first exhibited in Paris in 1881, Degas' sculpture is now recognized as one of the most important works produced during the 19th century. By using real fabric and real hair to complete the ground-breaking work, Degas blurred the distinction between art and life and paved the way for modern sculpture. This program reveals how Degas broke every rule in the book to create his modern masterpiece, and also tells the life story of the sculpture's model
