If a naked body is one deprived of clothes, a nude, by contrast, is the body liberated and in its purest state. One of the most controversial, yet long-standing subjects, art nudes are much more than the male and female form – they represent the spectrum of human emotion and the transcendence of body language. Both instantly relatable and intriguingly foreign, the fine art nudes in the LUMAS collection of exclusive art prints explore this intimate topic.
The nude is a central feature of Western art. A preoccupation of the ancient Greeks, nude art experienced a revival in the Middle Ages with the Renaissance movement. Iconic works such as Michelangelo's “David” reintroduced the male form, whereas “The Birth of Venus” by Sandro Botticelli revived the female figure. Following these masterpieces, the fascination with classically themed nude art remained popular subject for artists until the end of the 19th century. Since then, contemporary art has moved toward representations free from classicism and idealization. Now the body is an open subject, often stark and revealing, nude art continues to push our notions of gender and identity.
The 20th century also saw the introduction of new media, like photography, wherein the nude has figured heavily as a subject. When it was claimed that photography couldn’t be considered fine art, the earliest monochrome art nudes mimicked high-art forms or alluded to classical representations that were popular in paintings of the same era. However, as the century progressed, experimental nudes, often black and white photos of women, became more widespread. Fine art nudes in photography explore both the intimacy and universality of the body. At LUMAS, our photography portfolio includes iconic works by established artists as well as the cutting edge aesthetics of promising newcomers.
