a quartett of friends and nude

there’s always action and

drama around a pretty woman

from competing for her favours

to be acknowledged as the

chosen/good loving suitor/

beloved muse of a poet/

model and lover for the artist/

untouchable prize for the


especially having seen her

depictions in the nude –

wherein the artist’s soul has

breathed into his canvas of

the beautiful woman/muse/

beloved/desired possession/

the real life spirit

only an artist could that way

in a tradition since aphrodite/

since botticelli’s venus/since

manet’s olympia/since goya’s

maya in the nude.

this painting recalls the four

suitors with different intensions

to capture a woman’s heart

her mind and her soul.
