Book Description 
  
Naked Women explores the subject of the female nude in photography in all its beauty and variety, with selections from ninety of the world's most renowned photographers, dating from 1850 to the present day. The reader is taken through a wide range of artistic styles from pictorialism to realism, from surrealism to postmodernism; viewing and understanding the historic images of Edward Muybridge and Bill Brandt; the established sexiness of Herb Ritts; and the quirkiness of emerging stars of the contemporary scene such as Angel Baccassino. While maintaining their individual style and interpretation of the female form, each photographer has been chosen for the impact they have made on the genre and on photography as an art, as well as for the beauty of their images, and the technical prowess with which they are achieved. Printed four-color throughout, the photographs are glorious and irresistibly eye-catching. Includes work from well-known photographers and artists such as Araki, Eve Arnold, Eugene Atget, Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Brassai, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Larry Clarke, Lucien Clergue Peter Lindbergh, Irving Penn, Steven Meisel, Herb Ritts, Jan Saudek, Mario Testino, and Dorothy Wilding.
