  • Art 19 Composition

    1. 1. Composition Theme and Other Interesting Stuff
    2. 2. Nudity verses nakedness? (19th C. Neoclassical) (11th C. Medieval)

The vague image it projects into the mind is not of a huddled and defenseless body, but of a balanced, prosperous, and confident body: the body re-formed. --Kenneth Clark, The Nude: A Study in Ideal Form
