    Reclining Venus is a sensual, sumptuous artwork that is attributed both to Venetian artist Titian and his teacher, Giorgione. One of the first full-length female nudes ever painted in Venice, this portrayal of Venus has been called one of the most beautiful reclining venus in existence. (Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister, Dresden).

    Titian & Giorgione: Reclining Venus


    Mariano Vargas (born in San Fernando, lives and works in Spain) discovered the art and the woman as a child, thanks to the great Renaissance painters. While his brothers were reading comics, he would spend hours reading the art books that his grandfather used to collect. Thus, his imagination became enriched by those women with white skin and reddish hair, sometimes modest and other times free in their nudity.

    As an adolescent, he would see Venus in the women around him. He started painting them, first taking photos of the girls that inspired him and then transporting them into his world by painting them. His mind bustled and painting could no longer satisfy his soul’s creative needs. It was then that he came across photography as a means of expressing his inner world, allowing the protagonists to have real skin.
