Artwork Title: The Chosen One - Artist Name: Ferdinand Hodler

The Chosen One

Ferdinand Hodler, 1894

Hodler developed a style he called "parallelism" that emphasized the symmetry and rhythm he believed formed the basis of human society.[3] In paintings such as The Chosen One (1893), groupings of figures are symmetrically arranged in poses suggestive of ritual or dance. Hodler conceived of woman as the embodiment of the desire for harmony with nature, while a child or youth represented innocence and vitality. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferdinand_Hodler)
