    Did you ever notice that men tend to paint women, quite natural of course, but that women tend to paint . . . women, too? Now, I am not complaining in the least. I am very glad of this, as a matter of fact. I’m just pointing it out. 😉

      Il motivo per cui i pittori di ambo i sessi preferiscono disegnare e dipingere in prevalenza solo donne, a mio avviso, può risiedere nella grazia e nel senso estetico che la figura femminile riesce a trasmettere.
      Poi, potrebbe anche esserci un motivo inconscio, legato all’archetipo della donna: la “Déa Madre”, la generatrice della vita, colei che ci protegge, che ci comprende e che ci ama genuinamente, ecc..
      In riferimento al bisogno dell’amore materno, mi viene in mente Raffaello, che a soli otto anni rimase orfano della madre, e dopo pochi anni, anche del padre. Questa sua intima carenza di affetto, Raffaello l’ ha immortalata nelle espressioni delle sue “Madonne”, che sono grandi capolavori di sentimento, grazia e dolcezza .
      Io personalmente, sono dell’idea che una pittura che rappresentasse solo soggetti maschili, sarebbe davvero deprimente. Credo sia meglio raffigurare le donne.

        Ah, that’s where it was going to end the girl in the garden, with the umbrella in backlight!
        I had lost sight of and, like magic, it reappeared!
