Velazquez reimagined...

This beautiful photograph, to me, looks like a modern retelling of the famous Velazquez painting of Venus reclining in front of mirror that Cupid is holding. The lighting and the way the sheets are arranged just shouts classical painting to me. Beautiful, enjoy.

  1. I'm gonna have to go see it on Monday and compare.

    I love the combination modern feel of dishevelment and clissic feel of the setting in the composition.
