Arte incómodo: "The Temptations of Saint Anthony" by Gabriel Borrás (1901) | Univited Guests

Work commented by Carlos Reyero, Professor of History of Art.

The nineteenth-century critics saw sculpture as the best artistic medium for expressing the eroticism of the female nude because of the sensuality of its materials and its three-dimensionality. In his interpretation of a Christian iconography with a long tradition in the arts, the temptations to which St Anthony was exposed by the Devil, Borrás emphasises the lascivious poses of the women who shamelessly offer their youthful attractions to the chaste hermit monk. Second medal at the National Exhibition of 1901; acquired by the State that year.

English and Spanish subtitles available.
