Portrait of Tourist(Portrait of Mr. Henri de Chatillon) - Maria Izquierdo

The Male Nude Book Cover

There have been hundreds of publications devoted to the classical female nude. In all the visual art forms, displays of female nudity have been a safe and sanctioned characteristic of art.

If a man was going to be seen in the nude, he wasn’t going to be seen to be enjoying it!Read More →

The Persistence of Memory (1931) by Salvador Dalí

Summary of Surrealism The Surrealists sought to channel the unconscious as a means to unlock the power of the imagination.
