Theodore Chasseriau

11 03 2015

Théodore Chassériau was a French romantic painter noted for his portraits, historical and religious paintings, allegorical murals, and Orientalist images inspired by his travels to Algeria.

The question I can’t help asking is why so many naked women? Are they being ‘objectified’? I suppose an investigation of the artist might throw some light on this matter. But I like approaching the canvasses with complete naivity.
