L'Origine du Monde: Eroticism
Deadline: July 9
Scarlet Seven Fine Art Gallery
Juror: Jon Christopher Gernon and Jillian Platt
In 1866 an Ottoman diplomat commissioned one of the most infamous paintings ever by French artist Gustav Courbet: “L’Origine du monde - (“The Origin of the World”). The painting still to this day because of its very nature and realistic, graphic nudity, has the power to shock and trigger censorship. It pushed the idea of what is erotic, sensual and romantic to what is pornographic and unmoral.
Entries should reflect the aesthetic ideas of sensuality, desire, romanticism and eroticism. Open to all artists 18 and over.
Fees: $20 for up to 5 images
