Art History Talk: “Painting Skin: Complexions, Cosmetics, and Reproduction in Renaissance Florence” by Dr. Rebekah Compton, Olin 101 (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

Rebekah Compton, Assistant Professor, College of CharlestonPainting Skin: Complexions, Cosmetics, and Reproduction in Renaissance Florence”

 

If the eyes are the gateway to the soul, then the skin is the billboard of the body. In fifteenth-century Florence, good skin was in high demand, particularly when diseases like the plague, ergot, and syphilis attacked the flesh with pustules, gangrene, and boils. A fine complexion was a mark of beauty and a sign that the body was properly balanced, particularly when it came to reproduction. The toilette, governed by the goddess Venus, provided women with a set of materials and techniques for cleaning, coloring, and scenting their flesh. Local apothecaries sold orpiment for hair removal and rose oil for perfume, and doctors applied slaked lime and lily ointment to remove warts. Artists also had “skin in the game,” so to speak. Florentine ladies requested customized pigment blends for their skin, while their husbands commissioned wedding chests and panel paintings of luminescent, rosy-hued bodies, many in the guise of Venus. This lecture examines the materials and techniques that artists used to paint female flesh during a period when the mediums of Florentine art were in flux. Created for a female audience of 14-22 year olds, who were chosen for their beautiful flesh, these paintings not only stimulated passion within the marital bonds but also reminded women of the self-cultivation necessary to sustain that passion over decades or else, as Ovid reminds us, your complexion might “go to pot, even though you’re a second Venus.”
