Classicism/Empire/ Another Classicistic Era 

Again very famous paintings: Maya, the only nude by Goya, and to compare the
"Dressed Maya".

Now, in another classicistic era, the "Empire", the ideal again approaches Antiquity with a
flowing silhouette (you may compare the composition with Giorgiones Venus!).




15. The Mayas

Francisco Goya 1798; Madrid, Prado


What perfect bodies Ingres shows us on his huge painting!

Two antique divinities, Jupiter and Thetis, with classical
proportions of beautiful athletic bodies.





16. Jupiter and Thetis
