Beauty of the Body | natashahartblog

  1. Hi Natasha,

    I am so pleased that you liked this piece as it is one of my favourites as well. The fact that it shocked you is surprising as historically, the nude human body has been one of the main subjects for artists. Freud’s painting here is one from a series he did with Leigh Bowery (the large man in the piece) and his works hang in galleries around the world. As you state in the final sentence `it is bold and confident and shows no fear’. The painting is of two `unperfect’ people inhabiting a small space, which, as the title of your piece states, celebrates the beauty of the body. I am glad that it had an effect on you. If you would like to know more about the painting and Bowery, check out my entry.
