Nudes in France — 7 Comments

  1. Hi Joy, thank you for visiting my page and leaving a comment. I really really want to see Alsace soon because of those nice postcards. I have a few more Alsace postcards that I’m gonna share soon for ‘Dreaming About France’.

    Your post for this blog hop is thought-provoking. I never really had a clear stance about nudity on art. It’s hard for me to draw the line between art and pornography. Perhaps if it’s illustrated the way they did before, wide-hipped chubby females, that’s still art. However, if it’s the slim and photo-shopped version, it’s pornography for me…

    I’m also curious as to why there are less artworks with nude men compared to nude women. Anyhow… I saw a film about Georgia O’Keeffe before, I never knew she posed nude, too!

    Two weeks ago, I visited a small artwork exhibition called Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris, showcasing artworks by Picasso, Renoir, Monet… It was a nice experience to witness these artworks from Europe for real! They’ll have a bigger installation in Singapore in 2015 and I’d definitely go back to glimpse on more artworks. Here’s the link if you wanna check when you have the time:

    This post of yours gave me idea on what to share when I post for next week’s ‘Dreaming of France’ I make sure I credit you on my entry 😉

    So long for now,
