Open House: The Ladies of the House

From today until April 14, the exhibition Women can be seen at Sotheby's New York. The artwork, all of which depict the feminine figure, is on loan to Sotheby's from the collection of Steven and Alexandra Cohen. While most of us can only dream about having a Vincent van Gogh on display in our home, that doesn't mean that feminine art is out of our grasp.

While I have a number of paintings in my home depicting everything from nature to furniture, it occurs to me that there are no feminine figures depicted on canvas or in print. This seems like a problem that should be remedied soon.

Do you have any feminine artwork in your home? Do you have any pencil sketches of nudes? How about paintings or prints of elegant ladies? Do you shy away from artwork depicting the human figure, or do you embrace it wholeheartedly? Tell me in the comments.

I would totally embrace having artwork of the female form in my home. I would love to muse on what the woman in the painting or photo actually represets, what ideas she engenders.

I was an art major at a women's college, so yeah, I have a few. :-) I don't have anything up on my walls at the moment since we just moved this past Sunday, but I'm really looking forward to going back through my old art (both mine & some friends') and covering my walls with portraits. I love portraiture, I far prefer it over landscapes or still life.

I do have a painting of a very attractive woman in some sort of victorian low neckline dress resting up on a table. Unfortunately, at the moment, I have it in storage. But I could never figure out who's it from. Casa, the next time I go to storage I will take a picture of it and post it so you can take a look.
