This is a review of the first 107 pages.
Pages 108 to 128 are comprised of 2 chapters. One is a private gallery with mainly portraits (19 small images), the other is about figure studies and it has 23 images, most of which are black and white sketches.
The book covers a range of Julie's art (not just that wonderful metal she does) up until the late 90s. I have the Boris and Julie Ultimate Collection so a lot of the works in this book are images that I already have, but there are enough ones I had not seen before to make it worthwhile.
The text in this book is interesting and enjoyable helping me know the reasons and ideas behind the paintings and more about Julie herself.
Another great book for my collection.
I have no problems with nudity in art. In fantasy art nude and nearly nude women (and some times men)are the excepted standard. When done with class and taste, like Amy Brown for example, it ehances the piece not distracts or in some cases disgusts. True art is something I can share with my children, discuss it with them, let it enrich their lives as it enriches mine; rather than hide in it the back of my closet so they don't see it.
