Гений художника через призму его моделей

Философская антропология. 2021. Т. 7. № 1. С. 80-115.

The essay, which consists of two parts, analyzes the female images of two great artists Botticelli and Picasso. The essay has the character of an art history study with memoir interweaves. In the first part, the author makes an attempt to decipher the genius of Botticelli using the technique of analyzing the prototype of the artist’s heroine and comparing it with the image of a real woman, similar to the Botticelli model.

The second part of the essay is inspired by a photograph of Picasso’s wife Olga Khokhlova, preserved in the personal archive of the author’s friends. The author embeds his story about the muse and the great love of Picasso and about his other paradoxical models in the circumstances of his personal life.
