"The Nude -- A Study In Ideal Form", was based on A W Mellon Lectures in Fine Art delivered at the National Gallery of Art in Washington by Kenneth Clark. This edition is published by The Folio Society of London. Full of wonderful, classical paintings and sculptures this fine art volume disects and examines the use of the nude in art throughout human history. With an introduction Charles Saumarez Smith, the book contains the following chapters:

The Naked and the Nude Apollo Venus I Venus II Energy Pathos Ecstasy The Alternative Convention The Nude As and End In Itself

The back of the book is dedicated to "Notes", "List of Works Cited", "Illustrations" and an "Index".

This beautifully published book comes in its original slip case. The blue slip case holds the hard cover book with an illustrated cover, black spine and gilded title on the spine. This art reference book is in excellent condition. The slip case has some very mild bumping at one corner. The book has a midly bumped corner on the bottom right. The pages are clean, the binding tight and the reproductions are exemplary.

An amazing coffee table, art reference book or book for the art student.
