Auguste Renoir painted two similar versions of Blonde Bather (La baigneuse blonde) in 1881 and 1882, both of which are now published as private collections. The 1882 version is seen above on the left. The model was Aline Charigot, who later became Renoir’s wife. Inspired by Renaissance paintings (especially Raphael’s frescoes) in Italy in 1881, these works are clearly different in style from Renoir’s earlier works. Some commentators have called these works beautiful, while others have called them vulgar.

What is Art

Art is one of the most general categories of aesthetics. As a rule, art is understood as an objective understanding of reality; the process and result of the expression of the inner and outer (in relation to the Creator) world. Consequently, art is a creative activity that not only reflects the interests of the artists, but also those of other people.

The understanding of art has changed with the development of philosophical, social and aesthetic norms and evaluations. For a long time, art was regarded as a type of cultural activity that satisfies man’s love of beauty. In this sense, art is a skill the product of which gives aesthetic pleasure. However, with the development of social norms, ethical and aesthetic evaluations, art has acquired the right not to describe any activity aimed at creating forms of expression as merely aesthetic and artistic. In a broader sense, we can compare art to drama; art has the ability to evoke an emotional reaction in other people.

In a modern sense, we can think of defamiliarized objects mirrored in different media as art. In this regard, we are all artists. Vladimir Nabokov wrote in Ada, “In ‚real‘ life we are creatures of chance in an absolute void–unless we be artists ourselves.”

Marc Chagall

Marc Chagall

Chagall is one of the most famous artists in France in the 20th century. His work has characteristics of surrealism and neo-primitivism.
Chagall was born on 7 July 1887 in Russia, in a Jewish family. He was brought up in the peace and tenderness of his mother, who taught him to read and to love the Bible and people. Vitebsk remained in Chagall’s imagination as the naive paradise of childhood, and the painter represented it in many paintings, in his youth and also later.
