“Vanity” – Cesare Catania – Contemporary Painting
Dimensions: 120 cm x 150 cm
Technique: Chalk, natural pigments and acrylic on canvas
According to the author a woman in the mirror fully expresses the concept of Vanity. Female beauty, almost like a statue, is synthesized by a few distinctive and beaded signs: the curved body, the highlighted breasts, the sharp look and flowing hair. The mirror, represented by the author as black and oval, reflects the bright colours of the woman in the centre. Absolute summary of both beauty and vanity.
