Titled “Sensation” the artwork features Venus mythological erotic posture inspired by Eduard Manet’s painting “Olympia”, created in 1865.
Manet’s Olympia was after Titian’s “Venus of Urbino”, created in 1534. And Titian’s Venus was after Giorgione “Dresden Venus”, created 1510.
Back in 1865, Manet’s Olympia raised a sensation at the French Salon asserting Olympia served by a black servant, and a black cat at her feet was a prostitute.
The Neoclassical Pop Art artwork features a portrait of Eduard Manet overlooking Olympia.
