The body in art

Leonardo da Vinci made the human body the subject of many of his experimentations. Dissecting, studying, and acquiring a complete knowledge of human anatomy was for him a necessary step in order to represent perfectly the naked bodies he painted and drew.

Little by little, the traditional image of the human figure was shaken and led the way to new interpretations of the body. Contemporary artists question the traditional figurative codes by addressing human representation in a variety of ways, giving it a new image that is dislocated, geometricised, deformed and disfigured.
