[edit] Information

The Nude in Art If there is one genre of art that seems to have played a greater role than any other, it is the nude. For at least 30,000 years, humans have represented the naked form in a variety of ways. From the ideal to the real, the Romantic to the Surrealist, there has been almost no end of works devoted to the unclothed human body. This four part series will examine those artworks, the societies that produced them and the artists that made them. The DVD presentation enhances the stunning visual quality of these classic masterpieces.

[edit] The Classical

This program examines art such as The Venus de Milo and the Venus of Willendorf. Through images such as these, we can learn why man first illustrated the human body in these specific ways.

[edit] The Renaissance

A lively visual journey illustrating how the Christian idea of nudity -associated with sin - was replaced with the idea of nudity symbolizing beauty and sensuality. Features significant works of Botticelli, Michelangelo and Giotto.

[edit] The Enlightenment

The naked form took on many different uses. For some, it represented virtue, for others, vice. It was used to shock, to coerce, to titillate, to impress, and to instruct.

[edit] The Modern

The 20th century changed everything. Emotional truth overcame physical realism. With photography and film, nothing seemed beyond the artists interest or capabilities.
