“Carpe diem” is a painting from the trio “From life and love” that belongs to the series of Art stories.
The silhouette is from a vase of the black figure style in ancient Greek ceramics. Originally the figure was a man, women didn’t appear dancing freely, let alone if they were pregnant.
In the Art Stories series I use classics from art history to express alternatives to history.
