looks like a john currin by the size of the rump, rendering and flesh tones. could be rubens, but he generally had more defined masses of plump fleshiness.

quite sure it's currin. searched google for the title and his name and it's listed under his bibliography, which is pretty damn long, so sorry i can't be of further help to search the title out for you. but here's the link... http://www.regenprojects.com/artists/john-currin/biblio/

While I cannot tell you who did the painting on the cover, I can tell you definitely that it is the work of Neith John Currin nor of Peter Paul Rubens. I will try to find out whose work it is and post the result. I can tell you it isn't 20th century nor 21st century.

I wanted to add that, while i have yet to find who might have done this image, my best guess so far is that it might be Gustave Courbet. At any rate here is the full image, if that helps. As you can see, I doesn't bear the mark of Currin whose takes on classical works tend to be cartoonish, yet to my eye it doesn't have much in common with the same kind of luminousness brushwork seen in Ruben's work

This is by Théodore Chassériau and is called La Baigneuse (vue de dos) and was painted in 1842. It is in the collection at the Neue Pinakothek, Munich, but I couldn't find it listed in their online collection.

In English it seems to be called, "Taking a Bath."

Way to go Joey!!! Tres bon! I tried every which way to try to locate who did this. I just knew it wasn't Rubens and I knew it certainly wasn't John Currin! Now I'm going to have to look him up. Well done:thumbsup: .

Hi Keron,

Luckily you found the full photo. You had the right school too, both Chasseriau and Courbet were part of the French Realist movement.
