we're off to italy where a delicious boccaccio recipe will give you a taste of a bell pays the beautiful country. but first it's a very special year for the netherlands two thousand and nineteen is rembrandt's year marking the three hundred fiftieth anniversary of the great touch painters death and amsterdam's rights museum is pulling out all the stops for the artist whose prolific seventeenth century self portraits some say laid the groundwork for what we see today on social media. selfie with rembrandt the old monster of self portraits tourists paying almost to an artist they see as something of a role model i've been to his house and to do museum and i've seen that in many of his paintings you can see himself in the back and it's very funny because he was kind of the inventor of selfies. take a loss is a nice memory of
a holiday family together with a great artist behind us. i think i have to thank him. my instagram page actually because these everything inspired by him apparently for the first time ever all the rights museums rembrandt's are on show at the same time almost four hundred works by the self-portrait superstar rembrandt's humble beginnings as a young artist he mostly painted himself he was after all of the easiest model to get at the early stages of his career. in small sketches for which he pulls all sorts of she faces so it's great that an artist learns like this asking how can i do that depicting emotions. there are more than eighty self portraits with a broad noses and wild curls rembrandt was obsessed with detail he presented himself unadorned at all ages he didn't censor unlike the sophie generation which
is not averse to concealing blemishes behind flattering filters. rembrandt became adept at expressively capturing emotions his paintings are dynamic records movement and situations as here in one of his most famous works the night watch he especially depicts the play of light and shade. on the clue he also upright colors according to a subpoena where the light falls he uses only white yellow. very bright chose from there the colors become darker and darker red and then brown this use of color intensifies the lights effect. even here he smuggled himself into the picture today the self-portrait master would have it all too easy but would rembrandt really just reach for his mobile phone to immortalize himself.
now a little heads up starting this july rembrandt's painting the night watch is getting a full. restoration and you can watch it happen either at the rights museum or you can catch the whole restoration process on their website now here in a very different. it's about desire sexual desire it's about the female body as a tool in advertising. women. what do you want. image of women in. fact. back when most women were housewives they were in charge of.
today we live in a sexualized society and we have lots of six in the movies and music you know not just in advertising. so our ideas of beauty that are linked to images of women and high it is. made a difference as. we see how advertisers have off the sex factor over time to grab customers attention. it's supposed to be a bit provocative to catch iran otherwise it'd be boring canadian photographer michelle perez is best known for his sexy sensual launcher a adverts. what is sexy is a really fine line you know between going overboard and really.
you know within the parameters of good taste but i have my own view of women and trying all my life to truly put forth that new which is you know to not abuse women to really respect them. across the board respect has never been the main focus. is supermodels of the nine hundred ninety s. did command a certain level of respect there unmistakable faces and lean figures became a seal of approval for whatever product fate touched most of the one hundred sixty five shows in advertising posters in the exhibition in berlin one made by many in this field women artists still the rare exception. now my colleague melissa holroyd is just back from that show one thing that just struck me it watching that report as this exhibition is billed as being critical of representations of women
the visitors we talked to actually had positive things to say about these images what do you make about. well i'm not surprised that had positive things to say these images or images that everybody knows we see these images everywhere and they are the norm what you do get to see in this exhibition is you get to become aware of the trends that exist a lot of the women of faceless a lot of them you just see different body parts for me in this exhibition i felt like there was an element of criticism that was missing in the room because we know this stuff so well now this exhibition does cover several decades in that time span the history of advertising who are these images of women targeting are they more for the male gays are they more targeting women i have to say that probably targeting both the exhibition shows how women's images for example were used as a distraction from the horrors of the second world war these ones here by german
american fashion photographer horst p. horse after the war the u.s. helped reconstruct west germany and that also meant spreading american products including the pinup that women would see these ads first in magazines but because they needed to get the money from their husbands the ads had to appeal to both because they have to go they have to take these ads to their husband saying oh by me oh well things of i've changed a lot haven't they now let's fast forward just a little one major shift that's also covered in this exhibition is the sexual revolution that started in the one nine hundred sixty s. how does that play out in that. it had a massive influence the sexual revolution source sex moving into the public sphere and the world of advertising really leapt at the opportunity. going to have a look at some pieces here here we have a piece from oh we should be we have a piece by frank over the telly the yves saint laurent from one nine hundred sixty
