Velasquez's perfect nude was cast by the press as the victim of its attacker's deviant, hysterical sexuality - a typical reaction, argues Lynda Nead . If the female body is legitimated only by turning it into art, then the real crime of pornography may be that it leaves the nude worryingly corporeal.

Velasquez's perfect nude was cast by the press as the victim of its attacker's deviant, hysterical sexuality - a typical reaction, argues Lynda Nead, who in this interesting but arcane book. A 1976 painting manual warns against too much detail or colour on the nipples. Blondes pose particular technical problems: the outcome is more likely to be soft porn than art, the manual advises.

The Female Nude represents the first feminist survey of the most significant subject in Western art. It reveals how the female nude is now both at the centre and at the margins of high culture. At the centre, and within art historical discourse, the female nude is seen as the visual culmination of enlightenment aesthetics; at the edge, it risks losing its repectability and spilling over into the obscene. Format Paperback 184 pages. Anyone who examines the history of Western art must be struck by the prevalence of images of the female body. But how and why did the female nude acquire this status?

Anyone who examines the history of western art must be struck by the prevalence of images of the female body. More than any other subject, the female nude connotes 'art'. The framed image of a female body, hung on the walls of an art gallery, is an icon of western culture, a symbol of civilization and accomplishment. But how and why did the female nude acquire this status?In recent years, the female nude has received renewed attention from feminist artists and art historians. By examining the dissemination of the high art female nude through art education and the life class, through art publications and the language of art criticism itself, The Female Nude brings together, in an entirely new way, analysis of the historical tradition of the female nude and discussion of recent feminist art. The book also explores the ways in which acceptable and unacceptable images of the female body are produced and maintained, and by surveying the legal and social regulation of the obscene renews recent debates on high culture and pornography.The Female Nude represents the first feminist survey of the most significant subject in western art.

I've said it before, feminists are too often their own worst enemies. Not only do they apparently presume to speak for all women, as perhaps subconsciously does Ms. Nead, but they frequently take a platform that is both dour and too stringent. Her contentions here in The Female Nude are extreme. She is all-but critical of sexuality itself, all but denies that there is any non-sexual beauty in the human body, chides lust as an institution (no, I could not type that with a straight face) and contrary to her goals of championing women she in fact attacks women much more ardently than most any man ever would. Really this is not an overview of western female nudity in art and photography at all. There's little to be learned here, and the overall tone to this message leaves you feeling like you've just sat thru a sermon, or at best one of those college lectures where the professor was a bit too dogmatic in her approach to conveying the subject matter. Heck, even the photographs in here were bad choices. Nead won't be able to market this to either voyeurs or the intellectually curious. This book seems intent upon punishing its reader and is yet another "get the message in first" example of attacking rather than studying; of overtly delivering a message instead of neutrally expounding upon what could have been an engaging topic.

Nead's book examines the male gaze throughout history in the canon of visual art. She thoughtfully takes a feminist approach to deconstruct the representation of the female body in the nude.
