It's all about the nudes!

Hi all,
today I'm going to focus on a few of my favorite nude paintings from the Louvre.

I've been exposed (no pun intended, lol) over my lifetime as an artist to many
nude paintings, and the masterpieces in the Louvre are the best I've ever seen!

I got to see Degas, Delacroix, , Manet, Ruebens and more.

One of the main things I noticed is that most of the paintings portray women with curves, no twiggys here!

My favorite artist when it comes to painting women is Ruebens, his coloring of womens skin just totally blows my mind. Also the way he positions them in his paintings are so beautiful.

Hope you enjoyed seeing these gorgeous masterpieces and that they brought you a sense of awe like they did for me.

Talk to you soon,

Wow--just fantastic! Thanks for sharing. I can't help but think that Ruebens would have loved ME! LOL
