  The Renaissance Nude

The Renaissance Nude

Edited by Thomas Kren with Jill Burke
and Stephen J. Campbell

Looking at works by artists as diverse as Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, Donatello, and Raphael, this book is a gloriously illustrated examination of the origins and development of the nude as an artistic subject in Renaissance Europe. From the religious to the magical, and the poetic to the erotic, The Renaissance Nude examines in a profound way what it is to be human.

This volume accompanies an exhibition on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center through January 27, 2019, and at the Royal Academy of Arts in London, February 26 to June 2, 2019.

This volume is a compelling and vibrant exploration of the manuscript, including stunning reproductions of the illuminations, never before published in color.
