The Art of the Female Form - Online Only
"The Art of the Female Form" A Whitley's Auction Whitley's Auctioneers invites you to take part in a themed auction of objets d'art and objets de vertu that celebrates The Art of the Female Form, on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at 11 AM PST. Throughout history, the female form has been celebrated, allegorized and reverenced in its endless representations: as sacred fertility Goddess, strong matriarchal figure, symbol of purity, strength, and heroism. The female form was the subject of Renaissance painting, letters, poems, and treatises. And of course, the female nude is an icon of Western culture. This special Whitley's auction features hundreds of specially chosen pieces from exclusive consignments, inspired by mythological, primitive, Classical, Baroque, Art Deco, and historic women and all faithful in their presentation of the female form.
