Curve: The Female Nude Now Cover

 

Review-A-Day

"Curve offers a mixture of high art (painting, photography, sculpture) and fashion photography, by dozens of male and female artists, of various generations....If anything, the ambiguity is the bottom line here....Curve may mark multiple vista points in the winding road of undress, but thankfully, the journey doesn't end here." Glen Helfand, Salon.com (read the entire Salon.com review)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The female nude has been one of the most enduring themes in art. "Curve "surveys how artists over the course of the last ten years have been sculpting, photographing, and painting the female form. A wide range of work and styles is represented: from the work of John Currin and Lisa Yuskavage, whose inspiration ranges from Old Master painting to "Penthouse "magazine, respectively, to the sensual nudes of Jock Sturges's photographs to the brazen women who populate fine arts, photography, and fashion work. The sheer variety of the art presented will speak to a wide and diverse audience.

Review:

"The seductive, startling, and sometimes quirky images included in this survey of contemporary female nudes captivates the eye and stimulates the mind." Library Journal

Synopsis:

The female body is one of the most enduring themes in art and in this gorgeous volume, ones sees how contemporary artists are painting, photographing, and sculpting it now.
