It has appeared in almost every major art movement from Cubism to Abstract Expressionism to the political art of more recent times. Why does the nude continue to fascinate us? In many ways, contemporary portrayals of the naked body differ vastly from Victorian works, but there are also strong similarities.

Many different statues, paintings and drawings exhibit the human being in it's rawest form. Being naked or being nude. Nudity and nakedness may seem like the same thing, but they can have very different meanings and looks. So what's the difference? They both mean not having clothes on. Nude means to be posed in a certain way usually in an art context and portrayed in a tasteful way. Naked is being vulnerable while unclothed and maybe trying to cover up.

Why Is Nudity Important in Art?

What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful that the garment with which it is clothed? Some people feel that the nude form is something that should be hidden away both in art and the artist's classroom. Although this may seem at first like a mere annoyance, such people frequently attempt to stop others from viewing or learning from the human form, thereby infringing on their rights to create and consume art as they wish. On the ARC website there are countless paintings and sculptures featuring nude figures.
A figure drawing is a drawing of the human form in any of its various shapes and postures using any of the drawing media. The term can also refer to the act of producing such a drawing. The degree of representation may range from highly detailed, anatomically correct renderings to loose and expressive sketches. A life drawing is a drawing of the human figure from observation of a live model.
