Depictions of couples in love have always served to illustrate the vision of idealized romance peculiar to a particular period in the history of humanity. In the past the sexual element in depictions of romantic relationships was often subdued to bring to the fore decorous courting, billing and cooing, and shared recreations. While each artist had his own vision of immaculate romance, the generally accepted standards of his time inevitably left their mark. It is not surprising that for the most part such art had a stronger impression on women. While the man gave priority to sensuality, getting an erotic charge out of nude female forms, which, to him, held promise of further intimacy, the woman was sent into raptures by amorous overtures when her suitor was still in pursuit of her affections. Chivalry and charm appealed to her more strongly than male physique. Thus a stupid and self-centered good -looker had fewer chances of capturing a lady’s heart than a less attractive yet gentle and attentive contender. And when a man came along who had it both ways, there was naturally no resisting him.
