Nude Painting for Sale

The nude is an artistic genre that appeared in antiquity and is present in all art forms. It is an important part of the classical artistic training, with the tradition of the study of live models in the studio. Between realism and abstraction, nude painting is still extremely popular in contemporary art, even more so as we live in a world in which the image and the appearance are essential. Throughout the ages, the depiction of the nude body reflected society's beauty standards and its fears: Egon Schiele's emaciated bodies or Lucian Freud's pallid color palette reflect, beyond personal aesthetics, the tormented state of mind of an age. Some of the modern and contemporary artists that painted nudes are: Gustav Klimt, Lucien Freud, Francis Bacon, Egon Schiele, Jenny Saville, Eric Fischl and Philippe Pearlstein. When browsing Artsper's key artists, do not miss Philippe Pasqua, Sylvie Delusseau and Guy Denning.

Why are people nude in paintings?

Artists often depict nude sitters in their paintings, and often for different reasons. Some artists want to portray the beauty of the human form, while some want to express ideas or emotion through the nude figure, giving it a deeper meaning. 

Why did Renaissance artists use nudity?

Artists depicted nudity frequently during the Renaissance due to the re-popularization of ancient Greek and Roman art. This re-popularization is called neoclassicism. During this period, Classical representations of the nude in sculpture were seen as the highest form of art and the ideal beauty standard. 

What was the medieval church's attitude towards nudity?

Nude statues, which were popular in Antiquity, began to be seen as representing a "pagan" past during the Medieval period in Europe that was dominated by the Catholic Church. Depictions of nude statues in medieval manuscripts represented idolatry, although certain deepictions of nudes such as the crucifixion were acceptable. In general, clothing was a sign of Christianity and modesty.
