Rotterdam, 2006

This is a painting by John Currin created in 2006. I chose this piece because its something that isn't normally seen in the mainstream art world. It is an oil on canvas piece which looks incredibly similar to paintings from the renaissance era. I respect the fact that John Currin had the guts to paint something this sexually provocative and release it to the public. John has done a series of pornographic themed paintings but is really known for painting erotic forms of the female body
