sbcltr’s curated guide to the powerful interpretations of the emotion in art
What is Love? This is a question that has consumed many an artist and while there are no singular answers to the question, some of the artistic interpretations of it give you an insight into how the feeling has evolved over the years. From Rembrandt’s sweet, The Jewish Bride, to Frida Kahlo’s self-portrait as Tehuna, to Robert Indiana’s simplistic Love, Masahisa Fukase’s obsessive, From Window, you see the variations and styles change across centuries and move on to more abstract, raw forms that also evolve with the idea of love itself, such as Wolfgang Tillman’s, I Don’t Want to Get Over You to Rachel Stern’s Love 2016. Sbcltr takes you through a visual journey on the evolution of love.
