Product Description

From the Publisher

The book includes works from pre- historic times to the modern era. The most famous nudes in the history of art, including Botticelli ’s Venus, Goya’s Maja, Rembrandt ’s Danae, Manet ’s Déjeuner sur l ’herbe and Picasso ’s Demoiselles d ’Avignon appear alongside lesser- known masterpieces of the genre. Concise commentaries provide historical background on each painting, biographical information on the artists, and many other fascinating details, such as the fact that two of Ruben ’s three Graces are portraits of the artist ’s wives or that Picasso first met his Demoiselles d ’Avignon in a brothel.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is truely and incredible compilation of figure studies from prehistory through the 20th Century. Well worth the purchase price, this thick book includes over 750 pages, is well organized (chronologically), with innumerable high quality reproductions, each accompanied by a well considered commentary. All it lacks for impact is in size. Despite the high quality color printing, it's impossible for me to fully appreciate the details of works of art when they are reproduced in pictures the size of a playing card (2-4 inches). I really like this book, but I'd also love to see it reprinted on letter size or coffee-table size format.
