The Female Nude, Art, Obscenity and Sexuality

£85.00

Product description

hardback First Edition published in 1992 by Routledge. Signed by author on rear of free endpaper. Unclipped illustrated predominantly pink dust jacket in very good condition. Black cloth covered boards with silver title on spine. Spine bumped slightly top and bottom. Otherwise in very good condition, clean and tightly bound with no further inscriptions.

Anyone who examines the history of Western art must be struck by the prevalence of images of the female body. More than any other subject, the female nude connotes "art". The framed image of a female body, hung on the walls of an art gallery, is an icon for Western culture, a symbol of civilization and accomplishment. But how and why did the female nude acquire this status?;In recent years, the female nude has received renewed attention from feminist artists and art historians. By examining the dissemination of the female nude through art education and the life class, through art publications and the language of art criticism itself, this book brings together analysis of the historical tradition of the female nude and discussion of recent feminist art. The book also explores the way in which acceptable and unacceptable images of the female body are produced and maintained, and by surveying the legal and social regulation of the obscene, renews recent debates on high culture and pornography.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
