in my defense, this post only has one nude lady in it. and it's for the sake of art.
this morning, a name popped into my head - ingres. jean auguste dominique. who had a mastery of capturing the very feel of the fabric he painted. here's what i mean:
princess albert de broglie, 1853
anyway, that's not the point. the point is, i was reminded of his painting, la grande odalisque (1814).
i'm thinking that this may have been the painting that i thought of when i saw madeleine peyroux's album cover for half the perfect world - in my on music post. hmmm. now that i see them together they don't look particularly similar. not even the pose, as i had originally thought. maybe it was the colors? maybe i am thinking of a different painting?
