Editorial Reviews

Review

“Make[s] the case for a more diverse approach to a timeless subject.” (Gallery + Studio)

“An in-depth look at our contemporary and historical fixation with the body and the nude.” (The Huffington Post)

“Though today’s nude is confrontational, the effect is rarely distancing; instead, Borzello concludes, its honesty forges an emotional bond between artist and viewer.” (Art & Auction)

About the Author

Frances Borzello has specialized in the social history of art since obtaining her doctorate at the University of London. She has published many books including The Naked Nude, A World of Our Own: Women as Artists, and At Home: The Domestic Interior in Art. She lives in England.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
Over one hundred pictures of paintings, photographs, and preformance art (mostly in color) appear including Lucian Freud Portraits which also includes bare males.

Each piece of art is identified and the text further explains the purpose and significance as there is a range in the times the artwork was created. Some would be considered for private view only. Others are taken to extreme. Art school discussed and who was allowed to attend. Robert Mapplethorpe's work appears. Includes artists' self portraits and some abstract art.

Includes an index.

Format: Hardcover
Having neatly contextualised our Ken (Clark), gospel for several generations, Borzello takes it forward. She's a safe pair of hands. The sometimes grisly present is leavened by a judicious sprinkling of earlier art, lest our appetite be prematurely sated
