Come and discover our selection of nude photos and discover our gallery of female nudes. The human body has always been one of the main subjects of inspiration for artists. At the beginning the male nude was very popular in antiquity, especially among the Greeks, but today the fashion has reversed and it is the female body that is highlighted in particular in nude art photography.
Ancient Greek art stands out among that of other ancient cultures for its development of naturalistic but idealized depictions of the human body, in which largely nude male figures were generally the focus of innovation. The rate of stylistic development between about and BC was remarkable by ancient standards, and in surviving works is best seen in sculpture. There were important innovations in painting, which have to be essentially reconstructed due to the lack of original survivals of quality, other than the distinct field of painted pottery.
