The Body in Painting

The human body, and particularly the female body, has been presented in art since ancient times. It represents beauty at its best, if done well. Nudity can be construed as vulgar or tasteless, and it some cases that is true. But the nude can also be a representation of liberty, sexuality and strength. The body is sensual and artistic, which is why it inspires great pieces of art. Throughout time it has been seen and interpreted in different ways. But if all one sees in the body is its flaws, that its true beauty can never be appreciated. (Some modern and contemporary pieces).
