in his essay the naked and the nude kenneth clark distinguishes between these terms
In his essay, “The Naked and the Nude” Kenneth Clark distinguishes between these terms:

What is the difference between Naked and Nude?

How are these differences negotiated in works of art?

Is pornography a type of photographic art?

Why or why not?

slide3

Why does Clark believe an understanding of art includes the nude?

Do you agree that the way

In which nudes are part of

Our art traditions defines our

Culture?

Why or why not?

slide4

If art is a matter of rendering more perfect the real, then what does Clark believe to be the role of the photographer?

Often in looking at the natural and animal world we joyfully

identify ourselves with what we see and from this happy union

create a work of art (Clark: 236)

What does this statement mean to you?

slide5

What are the two critical interpretations of the ideal?

Why was it so important to the Greeks and those who followed to render the human form in geometric proportions?

slide6

Clark cites various ways of looking at the human body represented in the arts of different cultures.

Are they they same or different?

slide7

There are other branches of human experience of which the naked body provides a reminder—harmony, energy, ecstasy, humility, pathos. . .as if the nude as a means of expression is of universal and eternal value. . . (Clark: 238)

Why does Clark say this is not true?

slide8

DISCUSSION QUESTION:

How do our aesthetics of beauty affect the way we see the nude in art?

“There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion. . .” Francis Bacon
