About the artwork

This photograph comes from the "Everlasting Madonnas" series that Mariano Vargas began in 2003. With highly sophisticated theatricality, the nude young women whose portraits are taken by the photographer represent modern Madonnas. Also known as "Virgin with child" portraits, they are a recurrent theme in the history of Christian religious painting and particularly that of the great masters of the Italian Renaissance (Botticelli, Raphael, Da Vinci, and Christus) from whom he deliberately seeks his inspiration. Both provocative and intriguing, they seduce through the softness of their forms but also by their staging, worthy of a theatre set. It is difficult for the spectator to differentiate between painting and photography in this savvy combination of purity and insolence. The photographer nonetheless distinguishes his work through a highly contemporary approach, by integrating elements derived from daily life into his photographs that conspicuously disrupt our reading of them. In this picture, the item in question is a camera.
