Comments about The Spring

not so fast...
Is it really entirely about innocense? You have to look more closely at expression. Is the idea of consuming the female nude all that innocent? Who is she? What is her class? Those are the ideas this painting should bring up.

I love the contrast in it as well. I love the expression on her face and her body language: happiness, innocence, a brightness....

Innocence and charm make this girl very interesting. Generally - youth and freshness, supplemented with green background and flowers.
