5 Most Romantic Portrayals of All Time

Since time forever, if there is anything that the world has learned through experiences at times and again that love knows no boundaries. Whether it is symbolised with a red rose or with the grand, historical gesture of building the Taj Mahal, love is the force that is driving the world since ages.

Some chose to live in the moment when they are closed to their beloved and forget the world, while some chose to make their last forever through their work of art. They wanted to make their love immortal and what could have been the better way to do so than with the immense talent that they had been bestowed upon by God, their art.
Love is eternal and so is art. Every time a person lays his/her eyes on a piece of art, a part of his/her soul gets attached to it. In the words of Chuck Klosterman “ Art and Love are the same things.” Here, in this article, we are about to revisit love in the form of art. What comes out when love is delved onto canvas, is what we are about to read!

1.El Baso
An exquisite example of Italian romanticism, this was painted for Paris World’s Fair by Francesco Hayez. Set in the middle ages, the emotion in this painting is the portrayal of sugar sweet love between a couple. Do notice the striking contrast between the warm red shade of male and ice blue silhouette of the female.

2. The Kiss
This list would be incomplete without this masterpiece by Gustav Klimt. He himself led an open love life and the inspiration for this portrayal of love on canvas was the love of his life.

3. The Bed
Depicted on canvas by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, this one portrays women as the true companions in any relationship, whether lover or as friends. This painting portrays the whole spectrum of lucidity. The painting shows two women lovers under sheets and blankets. There is nothing sexually explicit in the painting but just a portrayal of romantic love in quiet moments when two friends or lovers appreciate each other just through glances.

4. A Stroll On The Canal
A couple taking a moment to bask in the silent glory of the sunset with no one around but each other, Henri Le Sidaner couldn’t have depicted a simpler yet so apt face of romanticism. The golden hues of the painting represent the aura of love when one is with their true love.

5. Slow Dance
When it comes to being intimate with your beloved, nothing comes close to dancing and this amazing work of Kerry James Marshall, illustrate this emotion flawlessly. Two plates and a bottle of wine in the foreground says that the evening was an intimate affair all along.

6. A Dance In The Country
You cannot hide love. Once you are knee deep in the emotion, it shows on the face. This painting by Pierre August Renoir showcases the face expression of the female dance partner. She is elated to be with him and her smile says she is on cloud nine to be in his arms. This emotion on her face says she is deeply in love with him.

Surely, as the day of love is approaching, you must be searching upside down for a valentine’s day gift that could portray your love as well as these paintings. Remember, the best gift that you could give to your beloved is your care, attention and a true promise of always being affectionate towards them.
