Conclusion

The human form has always been a fascinating subject to put on canvas. For one, it shows off a lot of technical skills and creativity. From the way a woman is standing to the look on her face and her body language can portray a lot of emotion in art. Additionally, paintings of nude women often explore the social taboos of nudity and how the artist depicts them is interesting. Does the subject bashfully hide herself or lay in repose, confidently and naturally? Each of these paintings and their contemporaries have a lot to offer and are open to interpretation.
