Alexandre Cabanel's The Birth of Venus is perhaps the final pinnacle of grand, idealized Academic art. Given pride of place in the 1863 Paris Salon, the goddess reclines unadorned across the vastness of the sea. No clamshell, no grand landscape, just pearlescent female perfection and attendant cherubim washing into shore. She looks a bit sleepy, her arm raised in a gentle stretch, her back arching across the waves—both life-sized and monumental.
