This original oil painting is actually a female figure study based on a pose in the first set of nude photos of Madonna (Penthouse, 1985). Of course, this oil painting is a femal figure study BASED on the photos. If you want to see Madonna, go get a copy of the magazine <g>.

TITLE: "Odalisque" © Chris Eisenbraun 1987.

The image in this original oil painting is based on the first Madonna (black & white) photographs that appeared in Penthouse (1985). I wanted to do a female figure study. The pose is the same, the interpretation is mine :)

I remember my teacher in Art History (collage) telling the class about the many artists who have created original oil paintings of odalisques. I think it was the blend of romance and sexuality that attracted them to the idea. So many have been painted it almost seemed like an initiation rite of some sort. Anyway, I decided to add my name to the list and paint one too. Of course, the Western idea of harems, etc. have undergone a slight renovation in the last couple of decades...

This original oil painting was created in Germany and has been carried all around the world. No matter how careful you are, sometimes things happen. Because of this, the paint on one of the corners of the frame is a little scratched up, but otherwise it is in really decent shape.
