An Art History Guide To Lady Gaga's 'Applause' Music Video
By John Hutt
Later, when Gaga dances with her cape, images of Les Vampires (1915) immediately come to mind.
The dancing continues and the Futurism begins to assert its presence. We see flashes of a pyramid straight out of Fritz Lang's Metropolis.
Then as soon as it begins it's over. Gaga smears her makeup across her face as if she’s a living Kazuo Shiraga smear painting or a sweaty David Bowie after a show.
We now come to Sandro Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus,” except here our version of Venus’ bosom is supported by the hands of Futurist cinema.
