Gino Marotta

 I discovered the art of Gino Marotta in March's Architectural Digest in the story on Pierre Passebon's Parisian home. In this eclectic residence these five paintings reside in the dining room. I love the perversion of this classical image in these dramatic colorways. 

Venere Artificiale, 1971

Carlotta Chaber, 1970 based on Venus Playing with Two Doves (Portrait of the Ballerina Carlotta Chaber), 1830

 Bagnante, 1969 based on Ingre's The Bather, 1808
