The creative biography of the great artist Francois Boucher is rich in a variety of paintings, but among them you can find the most popular, revered and adored works of the public. These include his work Bathing Diana.
The Olympic goddess of unprecedented beauty appeared in the work of the artist as the most beautiful charmer, who stopped for a few minutes to rest after the next hunting fun near the stream. It should be noted here that the author of the work did not strive to repeat exactly those Greek myths that were composed at that time about Diana.
This suggests that Bush was not interested in mythology as a story or as a legend of the world. He used and drew knowledge in order to depict the goddess with her femininity and beauty as best and more beautiful as possible. This can be understood if you look only at the eyes of Diana. Therefore, Diana’s Bathing is tenderness. The heroine of the artist’s work lives here in order to give care and delight to everyone who needs them.
Therefore, this painting by Francois Boucher is one of the paintings of Rococo art. What is remarkable – despite the fact that Bush was a professional and an artist from God, the picture was not accepted by criticism. But she was loved and appreciated in his time by the great impressionist Auguste Renoir.
In most of his paintings, Boucher loved ideal for her beauty female naked bodies. During his creative life, he developed this direction so much that with him no one could in this any longer compete with him. Critics and connoisseurs of his work noted that the women he depicted had excellent wrists. Ankles, feet and skin. Therefore, the pictures turned out to be so magical and attracting, but men were especially attracted to them.
