Curve: The Female Nude Nowby Meghan Dailey, Jane Harris, Sarah Valdez, Frances Richard (Joint Author)
The female nude has been one of the most enduring themes in art. Curve surveys how artists over the course of the last ten years have been sculpting, photographing, and painting the female form. A wide range of work and styles is represented: from the work of John Currin and Lisa Yuskavage, whose inspiration ranges from Old Master painting to Penthouse magazine, respectively, to the sensual nudes of Jock Sturges's photographs to the brazen women who populate fine arts, photography, and fashion work. The sheer variety of the art presented will speak to a wide and diverse audience.

Curves: The Female Nude now focuses on the often problematic yet intriguing role of the female nude in our contemporary and pluralistic art world. Not only does it leave the viewer satisfied through its complexity and candor, it reveals that the art of the present will continue to amaze and renew. Of particular interest are the works of Graydon Parrish and Jenny Saville: opposite sides of the same coin who embrace the female form through beauty and sizable power.
