Difficult to grasp, sometimes caressing and sometimes destructive,
this invisible force has never ceased to animate the art with its magical breath.
Painting the Wind ...
this invisible and indomitable force ...
so mysterious that Greco-Roman mythology has personified it as Boreas
or Zephyr –
this beautiful winged young man who, with swollen cheeks, blows to spin the flowers and hair of Botticelli’s famous Birth of Venus
Painting the wind ....ppsx
Painting the wind ....ppsx
Venus, the Roman goddess of love, beauty, fertility
has just been birthed
and
we witness her arrival to the shores of Cyprus
in a giant scallop shell propelled
by the vigorous gusts of the west wind, Zephyr and Aura,
the personification of a lighter breeze.
…
In Greek mythology, Zephyrus is the personification
of the gentle west or northwest wind, associated with spring.
He was depicted as a winged youth,
and holding a basket of spring flowers in his hand.
Sandro Botticelli
The Birth of Venus
La Naissance de Vénus
1486
Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

  • 1. Difficult to grasp, sometimes caressing and sometimes destructive, this invisible force has never ceased to animate the art with its magical breath.
  • 3. this invisible and indomitable force ... so mysterious that Greco-Roman mythology has personified it as Boreas or Zephyr – this beautiful winged young man who, with swollen cheeks, blows to spin the flowers and hair of Botticelli’s famous Birth of Venus
  • 6. Venus, the Roman goddess of love, beauty, fertility has just been birthed and we witness her arrival to the shores of Cyprus in a giant scallop shell propelled by the vigorous gusts of the west wind, Zephyr and Aura, the personification of a lighter breeze. … In Greek mythology, Zephyrus is the personification of the gentle west or northwest wind, associated with spring. He was depicted as a winged youth, and holding a basket of spring flowers in his hand. Sandro Botticelli The Birth of Venus La Naissance de Vénus 1486 Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence
  • 9. Sandro Botticelli’s huge masterpiece set the benchmark for visual art, in telling the story of Zephyrus and Flora. The west wind abducted and raped the nymph Chloris who was then transformed into the goddess Flora, representing the Spring. Sandro Botticelli Primavera (Spring) Le Printemps 1482 Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence
  • 13. Just over a century later, in about 1618, Jan Brueghel the Elder and the young Peter Paul Rubens joined forces to paint their Flora and Zephyr … Flora collecting flowers dropped into a red sheet by Zephyrus, with two putti assisting. Jan Brueghel the Elder and Peter Paul Rubens Jan Brueghel l'Ancien et Peter Paul Rubens Flora and Zephyr Flore et Zéphyr 1618 Schloss Mosigkau, Dessau-Roßlau
  • 16. The moment when Zephyr sees the nymph Chloris for the first time. Such was her passion that she aroused in him that he kidnapped her from her, throwing a garland of white flowers around her, and made her his wife by her strength. Repentant after her and as proof of her love, he transformed her into Flora, goddess of spring, giving her an immense garden … "I, who now call myself Flora, used to be Chloris"... She enjoyed an eternal spring...my husband covered this garden with flowers and told me: You, goddess, hold the sovereignty of flowers". Ovid's Fasti V. John William Waterhouse Flora and the Zephyrs Flora et les Zéphyrs 1898 Private collection
  • 20. Boreas in his classical guise : a roughly-bearded old man with wings sweeping Orithyia up in his arms. A cluster of Cupids are engaged in a snowball fight: a lovely touch of humour, and a subtle reference to winter. … In Greek mythology, Boreas is the personification of the North Wind and harbinger of winter. In art, he is usually depicted as a bearded, older man. He is mostly known for his abduction of the Athenian princess Orithyia. Peter Paul Rubens Boreas Abducting Orithyia or The Rape of Orithyia by Boreas L'Enlèvement d'Orithye par Boreas 1620 Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Gemäldegalerie, Vienna
  • 23. A full Rococo interpretation in Boreas Abducting Orithyia ... Boreas devoting his efforts to blowing his wind at Orithyia’s friends and the ground to the right bearing witness to his destructive force. François Boucher Borée enlevant Orithye Boreas Abducting Oreithyia 1769 Kimbell Art Museum, Fort Worth
  • 27. Boreas retreating beneath the hooves of Phoebus’s horse, the clouds pushed aside by the Sun God’s advance ... Phoebus, God of the Sun, and Boreas, God of the North Wind, made a bet about which of them could get a traveler to remove his cloak. The cold wind made the man pull his clothes more tightly around him but the rays of the sun had the opposite effect. Phoebus and Boreas (Phébus et Borée, VI.3) in La Fontaine's Fables. Gustave Moreau Phébus et Borée Phoebus and Boreas 1879 Musée National Gustave Moreau, Paris
  • 30. this invisible and indomitable force... that fascinates artists by the challenge of reproducing the softness of a breeze, or the violence of a storm
  • 31. showing wind ... one of the first works to use highlights over the foliage of trees to make them look as if they are moving in the wind Thomas Gainsborough Landscape with Cottage and Church Paysage avec maison et église 1771-1772 Yale Center for British Art, New Haven
  • 33. The Approaching Storm ... dark clouds, windswept oaks, still-sunlit mountain range in the far distance The landscape is probably a site in the Forest of Fontainebleau, a vast expanse of virtually untouched forest a short distance from Paris. Courbet's inclusion of the mountain range, which does not exist in proximity to the forest, transforms this very realistic setting into a type of fantasy. Gustave Courbet La Rafale de Vent The Gust of Wind 1865 Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
  • 36. A great oak tree is torn from its roots as the wind ravages the landscape and a small peasant figure - the human being in the face of the force of nature Jean-François Millet Le coup de vent The Gust of Wind 1871-1873 National Museum of Wales / Amgueddfa Cymru, Cardiff, Wales
  • 39. The foliage shaken by the wind ... the trees are no longer a picturesque element or an anthropomorphized creature, but the medium through which the artist expresses the sensations arising from his direct experience of nature Claude Monet Effet de vent, série des Peupliers Wind Effect, Series of The Poplars 1891 Musée d’Orsay, Paris
  • 42. dark clouds above an angry sea, a shipwrecked boat and its anxious survivors ... the powerful force of nature over man. Claude Joseph Vernet Tempête sur une côte méditerranéenne A Storm on a Mediterranean Coast 1767 J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles
  • 45. this invisible and indomitable force... that lifts skirts, that throws umbrellas on the beach and that attracts the painters of modern life.
  • 46. The lively traffic on the Pont des Arts ... A gust of wind leaves dignified gentlemen clutching their top hats and friskily lifts the skirts of a chic young woman, revealing a naughty glimpse of petticoat. Jean Béraud Le Pont des Arts par grand vent A Windy Day on the Pont des Arts 1880-1881 The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY
  • 50. A scene of Parisian life ... the bustling Pont des Arts, a gust of wind, the men clutching their hats, a young artist and a pretty young milliner laden with hat boxes, who in turn sends a coquettish glance towards the viewer. Jean Béraud Modiste sur le Pont des Arts Milliner on the Pont des Arts 1879-1882 Private collection
  • 54. the wind, the slippery rocks, a fashionable hat, a cloud of ribbons and lace and a very pink 'gallant' young lady An example of how to paint a young girl look windswept (... although her partner seems mysteriously to be unaffected by the breeze). Georges Jules Victor Clairin Elegant Couple at the Coast Un couple élégant sur la côte 1919 Private collection
  • 57. The wind pleases the painters of modern life, who are looking for original compositions ... By lifting the skirts and sowing disorder ... Stampede on the beach, the wind becomes a simple entertaining element of everyday life, flips umbrellas on the beach, scares away small dogs and fly away the ribbons of hats Denis Etcheverry Coup de vent à Trouville Gust of wind at Trouville 1907 Musée d'Orsay, Paris
  • 60. A delightful scene ... a gust of wind on the Pont des Saints-Pères whipping the manes of the team of horses pulling an omnibus, threatening to blow away one woman’s hat and lifting the coat skirt of another lady Parisian, whose fur boa is whirling in the wind. Louis Anquetin Bourrasque sur le pont des Saints-Pères ou Coup de vent sur un pont de la Seine Gust of Wind on a Bridge over the Seine 1889 Kunsthalle Bremen, Bremen
