Italian Renaissance Nude
Written by award-winning scholar Jill Burke, this groundbreaking study on the subject of the Renaissance nude considers a selection of works from numerous artists, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, and Michelangelo.
Delving into contemporary research on Renaissance culture and medicinal studies, the book interrogates the notion that the nude was a celebrated return of classical aesthetics. Rather, Burke considers the usage of the nude as a tool to entrench existing power relations, and explores the interwoven impact they had upon masculinity, femininity, and the divine.
