Theodore Chasseriau

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.

Theodore Chasseriau. I was writing a mean spirited and critical review of Chasseriau’s work when the blog disappeared. About what has happened to much of his work. And interest in his work. The models in his painting are almost yawning.
