In the Buff

My mother has a stunning Modigliani print of a nude woman stretched out on a bed. At one time it hung above her bed. She used to make funny remarks about having to take it down when "company" was over. She was half joking. But only half. And recently, I was in someone's home and they had a floor to ceiling nude portrait in their entry. I loved it. It was very bold and very bodacious. It was a Lempicka, I think - all 1920's and boobs. Just awesome. I'm all for it... let's get some nude art up on our walls!

And one more - because Jean is totally right - I've neglected the men.
It's by painter, Henry Scott Tuke.

Nah, they're not nearly as pretty as us.

I love the idea of nudes but I can remember feeling the same way as your mom...what would company think? geez, now I think "who cares? I love it!" But, chances are any paintings of mine would still be in the bathroom...
