A little about the painting itself:
Giorgione was an Italian painter of the High Renaissance in Venice. He is known for the elusive poetic quality of his work, though only about six surviving paintings are acknowledged for certain to be his work. The resulting uncertainty about the identity and meaning of his art has made Giorgione one of the most mysterious figures in European painting. The Sleeping Venus, also known as the Dresden Venus, portrays a nude woman whose profile seems to follow that of the hills in the background. The painting was never finished by Giogione, but it is now generally accepted, that the landscape and sky, was completed by Titian, after Giorgione’s death in 1510.
