  • About the artwork

    Oeuvre unique et originale de Julien Raynaud.
    Reprise de l'oeuvre "La vénus endormie" de Giorgione.

    Il est probable que cette pose a été inventée par Giorgione, car on n'en connaît aucun antécédant significatif antique ou hellénistique - à l'exception de quelques angles de sarcophages dont on peut douter qu'ils aient inspiré le peintre vénitien. Dans les siècles suivants, tous les grands peintres en imagineront des variantes : Cranach, Titien (la Vénus d'Urbino, la Vénus du Prado), Rubens, Courbet (Les dormeuses, La femme au perroquet), Renoir et bien sûr Manet (l'Olympia). Elle semble si naturelle qu'on n'en voit plus les particularités. Infléchie comme une branche, le ventre arrondi, les lignes sinueuses rappelant les courbes gothiques, on peut la rapprocher des silhouettes d'épouses nues qu'on peignait parfois à l'intérieur des coffres de mariage du 15è siècle. Alors que la Vénus de Praxitèle tient encore son vêtement, celle de Giorgione est endormie, sans songer à sa nudité. Mais sa silhouette est trop parfaite pour être naturelle. Détachée sur un paysage couleur de miel, elle donne l'impression de rêver profondément, à distance du monde matériel. Mais l'équilibre est fragile, plus fragile encore que celui de la Vénus de Botticelli - comme en témoigne la main posée sur le sexe. Il suffirait de peu de choses pour la réveiller.

Julien Raynaud

Born in: 1987

France

Emergent Artist

Julien Raynaud is a young self-taught artist, using bright color sprays paint and acrylic. His style is a delicious blend of Cubism and Street Art. When he was 16 years old, Julien bought his first spray paint and made his first graffiti in the abandoned places of Marseille (France). He left the walls after a few years and decided to focus on canvas paintings.

After a trip to Los Angeles he found himself questioning his life and came out with a new inspiring style. Julien Raynaud's artworks are full of sincerity, love and hope. Always inspired by his previous experiences. Through his paintings, made with distorted characters full of bright colors. He aims to show people a better human life and to make people reunite with their child side.

According to the artist, "The more a subject is painful, the more he uses bright colors to show that we can overcome anything." In Julien Raynaud's artistic world, whatever the story is, it always has a happy ending.
