The Feminine Wave by Andy Warhol is an iconic image which has spanned time and has been a part of the art world for decades. This is one of the most popular pictures which Warhol made during his career. The image depicts a long curling, almost lazy wave. But unlike The Great Wave, which depicts a straight curling wave, this image depicts a slightly wave-like curling wave which can be described as lazy. It is also bounded by a gently fluttering floral pattern. These are some of the many similarities between this image and the previous mentioned painting by Warhol.
A Comparison Between the Feminine Wave and The Great Wave
Although both paintings depict a similar aspect of a curling wave, they differ in their style. On the other hand, there are several differences which help differentiate the two. For instance, the Great Wave is more static while the Feminine Wave is more dynamic in its appearance. This particular painting was inspired by the works of Pop artist Andy Warhol. He found the fluttering and dainty appearance of a simple flower very appealing and this is the reason why he decided to make a picture of a similar nature.
Similar to the previous painting, the image contains elements which help bring together all the different parts of the canvas in such a way that it creates a beautiful visual display. This is what is known as a Hokusai, which means a flower painting. In terms of symbolism, the image shows a simple halo around a girl’s shoulder which signifies her purity of spirit and mind. The image was often used in Japanese tattoos and it has now found its place in the world of modern art as well.
