THE ART OF FEMALE NUDE – FELICE CASORATI {PAINTING/NSFW}

 

Felice Casorati’s female nudes (c. 1930s) were known as shocking in their time due to their unusual perspective. Whereas most female nudes seem to dehumanize the female body by making it a subdued object of the male gaze, here Casorati’s nudes are disinterested in their observer, often seen occupied with other tasks like reading, reclining, or just generally “looking away.” The unusual use of color also aids in turning the female subject into a sickly/earthly figure whose existence is not hypersexualized but instead becomes a source of uneasiness or intriguing activity.
