Secrets of the Flesh
Nude masterworks under the magnifying glass It might seem like the sitters and subjects of art history’s greatest nude paintings have little left to show, but don’t be fooled: there is more than meets the eye in these naked masterworks.
Rose-Marie and Rainer Hagen guide us into the secrets of the flesh, coupling extended discussions with crisp, enlarged details of 12 iconic works from the canon of art history.
Biblical tales of morality or modern portrayals of leisure, works such as Tintoretto’s Susanna and the Elders or Manet’s The Luncheon on the Grass offer diverse visions of natural beauty.
Each artwork is presented in reproductions of the highest quality, sourced directly from the original, located in collections of the Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Uffizi, and many others.
