Description of the painting by Jean Auguste Ingres Bather

Pictures on literary and mythological plots, portraits and historical canvases – it seems that any of the themes is subject to the artist. Frankly admiring the beauty of the naked body is associated with ancient art. The same detailed drawing of the curves of the body, combined with an amazing smooth lines and a fancy play of light.

The classic harmony of the composition, a subtle sense of color and the harmony of a light, transparent color are visible in each artist’s work. Portraits Ingres features flawless design and beauty of silhouettes, combined with subtle gestures. Emotional detachment of the master only emphasizes this beauty. The artist carried a feeling of admiration for the beautiful throughout his life.

The artist added the antique glorification of the beauty of the naked body with the liveliness of character and individuality of the plastic. The figure of the bather strikes with a balance of classical form and realistic details. The centerpiece of the composition was the smooth back of the girl. Turning away from the viewer, she slightly bent her right hand. The undisturbed property of the bathers creates a fragile sensation of the moment when a moment can be broken with a word or a gesture.

The artist surprisingly finely inscribed complex rhythmic forms in a simple inseparable contour. The figure of the bathers is organically placed among the “scenery” and is shrouded in soft reflected light. It is this light and muted colors of the general background that create a surprisingly intimate atmosphere.

“Bather” embodies the classic beauty seen in a living woman.
