IT’S BACK IT’S BACK

What the actual fuck did I just watch?
I’m not sure what I was expecting
Oh thank god, I thought this had been lost in the bowels of the internet forever.
And of course I had no choice but to watch this and reblog it again as soon as it returned to my dashboard.
LOOK AT THIS BABY PLAY!

Can we just talk about this ridiculous painting for a moment?
Bouguereau is pretty ridiculous to start with, what with his gigantic, hyper-rendered paintings (if you’ve ever stood in the presence of one, you know what I mean, they’re like portals to a softly-lit alternate Victorian dimension)
But this… this is just complete silliness. Bouguereau spent the majority of his life painting milky-skinned young ladies and then I guess one day he got fed up with that hetero nonsense and said FUCK IT.
BAM! HOMOEROTICA all over the place. I mean, this is the gayest fucking painting I’ve ever seen. Even that demon knows what’s up, he’s all “look how gay this shit is, Dante. Just look.”
Even Virgil - who all through ‘The Inferno’ is the staunch support whom Dante leans upon - looks like he’s about to vomit his Victorian sensibilities everywhere. Bougeureau, you fool, Virgil was an ancient Roman poet. If he had the technology, he’d be videotaping this. Clearly Bouguereau never read ‘The Aeneid’ which has some of the loveliest references to men in love you’re likely to find outside of a fanfiction forum. And all that aside, it’s like Virgil and Dante switched places. All through ‘The Inferno’ Dante is a crying, girly mess and Virgil is always patting him on the shoulder and saying “Hell sucks, dude,” not the other way around.
Disregarding everything I just said, Virgil’s offended little face here is Andromalius up down and sideways.
Let’s all look at this because it’s important.
THERE IS DANTE ON MY DASH AND IT’S NOT EVEN MY BIRTHDAY.
However, I have to dispute the OP’s characterization of the Vergil. While Dante’s Virgil was a vigorous, manly spirit of great strength (bridal-carrying a 14th century poet is no joke when you don’t have a body), the historical Vergil was pretty regularly mocked as a limp-wristed lemonade-sipping effete. His nickname in school was Parthenias (“maiden” in Greek), and even the variant spelling of his name, “Virgil,” started as a pun on “virgo” - the virgin. Also, the guy wrote one of the great backhanded compliments of all time in the Aeneid, and then didn’t even have the stones to publish it. He ordered it burned when he died.
TL;DR: VIRGIL WAS A BADASS, BUT VERGIL WAS TOTALLY A WILTING FLOWER WHO’D BE PUT OFF BY A LITTLE THING LIKE A DUDE RIPPING SOMEONE’S THROAT OUT WITH HIS TEETH.
Mucho props to megalosaur’s impressive knowledge of Virgil, and for filling in that rather fascinating bit of history. But… oh god, why is this stupid post of mine getting around again? I wrote this months ago for no good reason without much thought and obviously a severe lack of adequate research, mostly as the sort of throwaway nonsense that I didn’t think anybody would ever look at.
Several hundred notes later, I’ve learned my lesson about posting inept nonsense on the internet at the wee hours of the morning.
Still… that demon’s face. Seriously.
I love when art and lit discussions pop up on my dash.
That demon. I want this painting in my apartment for that face. And Dante’s horrified face.
