Nude Fine Art and Artists
There is something so bold, so beautiful, about nude fine art that it surpasses words. The image staring back at you (if the subject is facing forward) with nothing between him- or herself and the viewer is captivating and holds the gaze.
Taboo of Nude Fine Art
Nude fine art has been around for years, and though youngsters are often titillated by the sight of nakedness, sophisticated art aficionados understand that nude fine art is much more than bare bodies. It’s a way to explore social taboos and expectations, as when a large woman (not the western ideal of “beauty”) is depicted in an erotic light, or when several young ladies are frolicking together in an open body of water, risking public scrutiny.
The purpose of nude fine art can be manifold. Sometimes, the artist is simply celebrating the human body with all its flaws and fleeting life cycle. Other times, the nude fine art maker is mocking the conventional wearing of clothing. The nude fine art piece can and should be as much about the artist as it is about the subject matter; and both should engage the viewer both emotionally and intellectually.
Nude fine art is displayed openly by many, although some prefer to keep it in more private locales, such as studies and boudoirs. Regardless of where you choose to hang your nude fine art painting or place your nude fine art sculpture, it will no doubt become a conversation piece for generations.
