True romance: Allegorien der Liebe von der Renaissance bis heute
Love is associated with an abundance of metaphors: we speak of burning desire and cooled passions, of being in heaven or plunged into the depths of despair. The language used to describe the highs and lows of love is not the invention of today's advertising and film industries; it dates back to early modern Western culture. True Romance explores how love has been expressed through the visual arts throughout the centuries. From the Renaissance, when the theme of love was articulated through paintings and sculptures of Venus, Cupid and other mythological characters, to Nan Goldin's epic slide installation Heartbeat of 2001, this beautiful celebration of love reveals the constant features, recurring motifs and artistic practices that have defined representations of the greatest of human emotions.
