The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.

The great odalisque

Weekend expectations …

“The great odalisque” by Jean-Auguste-Dominique #Ingres is one of the most famous paintings that best represents a character intent on absolute idleness, with a proud and serene air.

☞ Do you know…

‣ The object highlighted by our #iconic red, supported in the right hand by the odalisque, is a fan of peacock feathers which, together with the turban on the head, is the only accessory to adorn the woman’s totally naked body
‣ The #proportions are far-fetched: the size of the hips deliberately accentuated as the elongated neck and back make the figure more sinuous. The painter is inspired here by great masters of the past such as Raphael, Titian and Velázquez, characterizing the work of neoclassicism and mannerism
