onda su onda

Here some emblematic 'vague' paintings: Bougereau's "La Vague", Godward's "Nu sur la plage", Baudry's The Wave and the Pearl and Seignac's fantastic "Vague".

These paintings, and especially Bouguereau's 'La Vague' look like those old 'artifact' studio photographs that were 'en vogue' until the second world war.

Anyway, look at these paintings... and you were told that the great artists of the second half of the XIX century were Manet, Corot, Courbet, and Renoir? That's what the 'Mafia degli scarabocchi' managed to have people believe.
