Body of Art

Diane Fortenberry, Rebecca Morrill, Josephine New

Body of Art is an unprecedented survey of the various ways in which the human body has been both an inspiration and a medium for artists over hundreds of thousands of years. More than simply a book of representations, the book explores the diverse manifestations of the body in art across time, cultures and media.

From Palaeolithic caves and ancient Egyptian sculptures to 21st-century painting, video and installation art, Body of Art is the only book to look at the human body in art in such expansive terms – Western and non-Western, ancient to contemporary, and spanning the spectrum from the most representative to the most abstract and conceptual.
