Reclining Nude

Reclining Nude

Book - 2002
Rate this:
Sensuous, voluptuous, provocative-the female form has inspired artists for centuries, making the female nude perhaps the most common subject in the history of painting. Oriented horizontally to effectively highlight the art, Reclining Nude is a feast for the senses, featuring 120 glorious masterpieces of the genre. Giorgiones catalyst Sleeping Venus , Titians unabashed Venus of Urbino , Manets Olympia gazing at the viewer, and Franois Bouchers flirtatious Brown-Haired Odalisque are but a few of the artworks to be admired afresh on these pages. Reclining Nude is a delightful gift and an inspiring study: a collection of art as stunning as the human forms within it.
