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.
