Sexy, image-packed, intelligent and original (The Financial Times, Books of the Year 2012)
Once firmly accepted social concepts such as “body”, “masculinity” and “nudity” have become less concrete over the past few decades. This volume presents an enthralling expedition into art history, tracing representations of naked men from the Age of Enlightenment to the present day.
This exploration includes glimpses into the life-drawing classes of European art academies, representations of men during the time of the French Revolution, “Sturm und Drang” and late Impressionism. It also offers examples of 20th century art. Egon Schiele and Richard Gerstl are the key representatives of radical self-observation in the mirror of the naked self. However, this volume also presents artists such as Jean Cocteau, Antonio Canova, Johann Heinrich Füssli, David Hockney, Ferdinand Hodler, Edvard Munch, Auguste Rodin, Andy Warhol, Nan Goldin and Louise Bourgeois. It contains a variety of essays that examine concepts such as masculinity and the construction of identity, male desire in modern art and the naked man as a motif in advertising.
