    • Composition Theme and Other Interesting Stuff
    • Nudity verses nakedness? (19th C. Neoclassical) (11th C. Medieval)
    • To be naked is to be deprived of our clothes, and the word implies some of the embarrassment most of us feel in that condition. The word ‘nude’, on the other hand, carries, in educated usage, no uncomfortable overtone. 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
