The Human Body
Product Unavailable
From prehistoric statues to modern resonance imaging, the human body - idealized or abused, naked or clothed, beautiful or distorted, male or female, young or old, black or white, still or moving - has been a continual source of inspiration for artists and scientists alike. Touching upon the whole human condition, these representations express a range of emotions - fear, love, hatred - and often excite strong passions. Whether intended as works of art or medical illustrations, political acts or erotic displays, advertising gimmicks or documentary evidence, these images celebrate the human form in its many guises.
This is a slender, sophisticated little volume covering just about any aspect of human body depictions, from stunning anatomical drawings to modern imaging techniques, traditional art to erotica, classical statues to wartime cartoons, divine proportion to anthropological measure. Curiously devoid of any mission statement or protestations of purpose, it embraces themes of politics, gender, art, fashion, history, medicine, sex and death. A great present for almost anyone, though be aware that some of the medical images might be regarded as gruesome. (Kirkus UK)
