Artist's Description

During History of at 2004. I painted this for a project titled, ‘beauty’. WE had to refer to a famous painting to make a statement about the title. I chose ‘Bather of Valpincon’ by Ingres, Jean-Auguste-Dominique.
When the painting was done, it was an age of different thinking to today in which if you could afford to eat, it was fashionable to show it by looking more voluptuous. Whereas, today, if you have the money, its fashionable to get plastic surgery to fit today’s icons of beauty, Barbie, celebrities, etc.
