A large red drape takes up the top left corner, and the top right corner in the less wide versions. There is a wide landscape outside, falling into two types. The two Prado versions show avenues of trees and a fountain in what seems to be the gardens of a palace.
The other versions have a more open landscape, leading to distant mountains. The painting is the final development of Titian's compositions with a reclining female nude in the Venetian style. After Giorgione 's death in Titian had completed his Dresden Venus , and then around had painted the Venus of Urbino. A repetition of this from , perhaps a lost recorded Venus sent to Charles V, "was the basis" for the Venus and Musician series. Otherwise the painting falls into the category showing courtesans , though these are also often described as "Venus", if only to retain some propriety.
In all an unembarrassed Venus is completely naked, except for a gauzy cloth over her crotch in some versions, but wears several pieces of very expensive jewellery,  typical aspects of courtesan pictures. He could be taken as the client of an expensive Venetian courtesan. Other reclining nudes are the Pardo Venus or Jupiter and Antiope , now in the Louvre , "that laboured attempt to recapture his early style",  from the mids.
For Clark, the Venus of the Venus and Musician versions, where the head changes direction but the body remains exactly the same, is "entirely Venetian, younger sister of all those expensive ladies whom Palma Vecchio , Paris Bordone and Bonifazio painted for local consumption.
The almost brutal directness with which their bodies are presented to us makes them, now that their delicate texture has been removed by restoration, singularly un-aphrodisiac. Moreover, they are far more conventionalized than is evident at first sight. The erotic appeal of the subject is evident, but some critics have argued for a more allegorical meaning to do with the appreciation of beauty through both the eyes and ears, and the superiority of the former.
The lutenists are able to turn their instruments along with their body, and both seem to continue playing. According to Panofsky, this "means that a musician interrupted in the act of making music by the sight of visual beauty embodied in Venus has been transformed into a musician doing homage to the visual beauty embodied in Venus by the very act of making music. It is difficult to play the organ and to admire a beautiful woman at the same time; but it is easy to serenade her, as it were, to the accompaniment of a lute, while giving full attention to her charms.
The 20th-century fashion for explaining paintings with reference to the subtle doctrines of Renaissance Neoplatonism reached the series, although in the case of Titian there is even more resistance than usual to such explanations. Edgar Wind noted a pictorial convention, seen also in the Pastoral Concert and other works, where divine figures are nude, but mortals clothed.
In the Musician paintings "the disparity between mortal and goddess is heightened by a paradox of posture. Such a world would presumably be hospitable not just to life, but also potentially to intelligent life, a fundamental question that has often fallen out of favor in the scientific mainstream but remains of deep public interest. That quest to find habitable worlds and life, intelligent or otherwise, is the theme of Five Billion Years of Solitude , a fascinating new book by science writer Lee Billings.
To date, that life here on Earth has lived in solitude, unaware if there was other life elsewhere in the universe. Only in the last several decades have we developed the capability to try and find out—if we so choose. Log in or sign up in seconds. Submit a new link. Submit a new text post.

Then are my conclusions below those sentences are correct, too? I'm not quite sure what your conclusions are. I would appreciate your judgment. I would say that it is normal to use the bare form which looks the same as the present tense in a conditional referring to a possible future event.
Neither of the appearances of the auxiliary "will" is a regular future tense verb. In first appearance, it means something like "if it is able to", and in the second, "if he is willing". If this medicine will get rid of my headache, I'll take it right now.
