Watercolor “Indecent proposal”, 2014 by Anna Dart

"Indecent proposal" is a painting that depicts a young woman lying on a sofa in front of a table. The woman is fully dressed in male clothing, which is unbuttoned and revealing her bare chest. The painting captures the character in a dreamy state, her eyes are closed and her abundant eyelashes cast shadows on her cheeks, making it appear as if she is sleeping or lost in thought. On the table beside her, there is a bottle of whiskey and an empty glass, which creates an atmosphere of vulnerability, uncertainty, and intimacy.


The title of the painting, "Indecent proposal", implies that the scene depicted may be the prelude or aftermath of a seductive proposition. It is inspired in the song "Propuesta Indecente" by the Puerto Rican singer Romeo Santos, a romantic ballad that filled with sensual imagery (2013). The painting creates an interesting connection between the painting and the song as they both deal with the theme of desire and attraction. This brilliant artwork by Anna Dart raises questions about power dynamics and the woman's agency in the situation. It is a quite provocative piece of art that invites the viewer to wonder what led to this moment and what will happen next.
