Diana and Callisto detail after Titian

So many of the old master paintings are wrought with emotion and pathos while the art of our time seems to be more about looking, portraying light and color and shadow. And yet, our time is becoming increasingly dramatic, violent and tragic. Are we ignoring the stories that are unfolding around us? Is the art world politically correct? I don't know, but while I was painting this, I had these thoughts along with, what is going on in this picture anyway? Was there a great wind that blew off all these women's clothes? To quote the Simsons, "What is being implied here"?
