The models are asked to assume different poses, standing, lying and sitting. The painters, sculptors or photographers then create an image of this nude from different points of view.

One of the most famous paintings of a female nude is Giorgione’s Sleeping Venus from 1510. The posture of the reclining woman in the landscape has often been repeated in paintings in subsequent centuries. Rembrandt also painted nudes and Eduard Manet painted the nude portrait Olympia in the mid-nineteenth century. That work was also widely imitated. In our time, we still find nudity in art, even when it comes to men. Just think of the photos that famous photographer Erwin Olaf took of naked men and women.
