MadameRuiz Profile picture Jules Joseph Lefebvre
Odalisque
1874
The Art Institute of Chicago

In the 19th century, people were very interested in the exotic. The Exoticism movement had a preference for everything that was foreign, from another culture, preferably from a warm, exotic place somewhere far away and a theme outside one's own comfort zone. Something we could long for.

During the period of Romanticism, people wanted to escape from the harsh reality of dirty cities, long working days and poor housing. That escape from reality is what we call Escapism.

In this painting we see a naked woman, casually lying on a bed with red upholstery. It is a painting with a strong light-dark contrast. The black background ensures that the naked body of the woman is accentuated around the buttocks and waist, drawing our attention to these areas.

I am MadameRuiz, and am an artist by profession. I hope to delight you with my work. Here in my profile, or on your wall :) Both are fun!

Will you let me know what you think of my work? I would love to get in touch with you. Also when you have one of my works in your home I am very curious about the end result in your interior.

I love everything that has to do with art, culture and creativity. Experiencing, creating, teaching and communicating. Through language, image, non-verbal and through the musical voice.

I became known for my commissioned ink portraits. My work was first shown to a large audience in the program VTWonen Weer verliefd op je huis (February 2021). I make many ink portraits of and for individuals; from pregnancy portraits, wedding portraits, child portraits, love portraits and family portraits to portraits of pets such as dogs, cats, horses and birds. These ink portraits are all handmade by the way, drawn and painted with east indian ink on watercolor paper.

In my shop at work on the wall you can order my Digital Art. Because I normally work almost exclusively on commission, my autonomous art via Digital Art is really a wonderful experimental outlet. This also means that I keep experimenting with painting techniques and collage techniques using Photoshop. Although I love to experiment, quality comes first
