More Italian Nudes

P. Conti, Nudo di giovinetta, 1933
Francesco Trombadori, Fanciulla nuda , 1933
Titian, Venus of Urbino, 1538
I love all of these Italian nudes in art history. The top two are new to me. I found them while surfing the internet. These two painters were around during Antonio Donghi's time. Conti has painted a wonderful study of red hair. Check out the position of the hands and arms on all of these paintings. All are interesting compositions.

In fact, I used this Titian image in one of my works from the early '90's that I exhibited at the Portland Art Museum. link: The Art of Amy Crehore
