Image of the body :aspects of the nudeby Michael Gill
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Gill, a film producer and director (Kenneth Clark's Civilization, Alistair Cooke's America), traces the subject from the first figures of the cave people to contemporary feminist reworkings, revealing the changing attitudes of society with respect to such issues as the position of women and the struggle between freedom and authority. The excellent art is unfortunately reproduced entirely in b&w, but the unusually interesting text is some compensation.
