The nude, as a form of visual art, is an enduring tradition in Western art.

Representing the human body has been one of the major themes throughout art history since prehistoric times. In fact, among the paintings that have marked history, many are nude paintings of bodies, more specifically naked woman. The body is a fantastic source of inspiration for an artist because it is simultaneously the embodiment of beauty, desire, reverie and the forbidden.

Beyond the subject represented, the painters create imagery of the human body, often very personal and sometimes even against the artistic rules of their time.
