Anatomy of a collage (Don Bacchus and the islands)

Final collage, 2020 Original element taken as a background plate. The collage is build up from this element. Arnold Böcklin's Die Lebensinsel painted in 1888. This is the second painting from this artist that I have used in this series. From this I have taken the swan and the island. Venus by Alexandre Cabanel. A classic mythological painting. It also perpetuates the Grec esthetic of women with no pubic hairs. These painting were always on the razor's edge between recreating a myth and producing an erotic image for a rich patron. The painted woman was taken out, flipped with some pubic hair added to move away form the hairless esthetic of the Grec.
