Although the shortest month of the year, February lays claim to Valentine's Day, a month filled to the brim with chocolates, flowers, and amorous messages. While (most) people await its official recognition in February, #love shows no preference for a particular day, month or year. Similarly, its formulation in art encompasses an immense subject range, from mythologically inspired dramas in seventeenth century Baroque works, to playful representations of aristocratic trysts in Rococo France.
The subject of #Love, whether grandly rendered in lush, pink tones with which the word is so closely associated with, or simplified to text, as in Robert Indiana?s famous series, is so easily recognizable to its audience-although responses may vary!
It's one of the most universal sensations, a driving force behind our favorite songs, books and the whimsical works of art in FADA's own collection.
