The toilet of Venus (from the painting by F. Boucher)

The toilet of Venus (from the painting by F. Boucher)
"Toilet of Venus" was commissioned to the artist by his patron - mistress of Louis XV Madame de Pompadour for her château of Bellevue. Madame de Pompadour played a major role in the eponymous play at the theatre of Versailles. On the canvas of Venus is similar to a court lady of the XVIII century: it "porcelain" face with languid, playful expression, gestures you umanity typical hairstyle with naturally curls lying, and all of it, despite the splendor of the forms, doll-like. Amury is not so much dress up this adorable Flirty, how to play with her hair and jewelry. Near Venus hovering doves, a sacred bird. Body beauty is written in the rare and exquisite, but somewhat unnatural colours. Bush did it consciously: he did not seek to imitate nature, explaining that nature is imperfect.
