From the jacket: "Sensuous, voluptuous, provocative - the female form has inspired artists for centuries, making it perhaps the most popular subject in the history of painting. Since Venetian painter Giorgione's Sleeping Venus, the first notable female nude in Western painting, artists have focused their talents on the infinite possibilities of the representation of the female body. Featuring full-page illustrations of masterpieces of the genre, Reclining Nude is a feast for the senses. From Titian's alluring Venus of Urbino to Manet's challenging Olympia, Reclining Nude provides a fascinating tour of the ever-changing visions of beauty and repose."
