Around the painting "Flora" by the eminent Venetian artist of the era of the High or, in other words, the late Renaissance of Titian, disputes have not ceased for a long time. Initially, the authorship of this masterpiece was attributed to another well-known artist of the time, but then researchers agreed that the painting still belongs to the brush of Titian. But the character of the heroine remained a mystery to many. It is only known that the painting depicts a really living Venetian.
This is a blossoming young woman of extraordinary, even somewhat idealized beauty. She has long golden hair, a wave falling on the feminine shoulders, and delicate fair skin. The girl's head is tilted, her beautiful face with a healthy blush is thoughtful, the dreamy gaze of dark velvet eyes is directed to the side, and a kind of half-smile is fixed on her lips. Her whole appearance suggests that the beauty is absorbed in her thoughts.
And at the same time, her face seemed to glow from within with some kind of mysterious fire. The woman supports her pale pink clothes falling from one shoulder with a chubby left hand. With her right hand, the lady, as it were, is handing us her bunch of spring flowers. That is why the picture is called "Flora" - the name of the ancient Roman goddess of spring and flowers.
Looking at the young beauty, one can only guess who she really was. Perhaps this bride of someone, if we take into account her shirt, which looks like wedding clothes. Such tunics at that time dressed the bride as a symbol of purity and purity. Art historians also indicate how the fingers on the beauty’s hand are folded, saying that this is a sign that she will soon part with innocence. Some believe that the picture, on the contrary, depicts a corrupt woman, a courtesan.
However, one cannot deny the similarity of the heroine with the Roman goddess of spring. Perhaps the artist painted it, imagining antique motives in his head, and therefore the image of a young woman turned out to be so sublime and as if divorced from reality. But no matter who this beautiful lady is, one thing is clear - her attractive sensual appearance has become a true embodiment of femininity, which few can leave indifferent.
