About this Item

paperback, as new condition, minor signs of shelf life, 56pp. This collection of male nude drawings and paintings is the first of this period to have appeared in print. Its publication represents a renewed interest in the human figure throughout contemporary Western Art. It is a rediscovery of a valuable tradition that for centuries represented the kernel of an artist's training. The male figure is back in focus after a hundred or so years of being out of favour. These antique studies break through today's myth of polished musculature and show us not only athletic definition - our era's dream - but a pervading softness and vulnerability, leading to the feeling that the figures are raw naked rather than nude. Front cover: Franz Seraph von Lenbach 1836-1904's Repentant Boy. Bookseller Inventory # 4192
