/I know, not one of "art's great nudes", but it does emphasize the aesthetics as opposed to sexuality.

What the hell? Did you actually protest a greenlit headline about nudes without a boobies tag?

"Art mirror's current cultural norms and ideals" stated Ric Romero famed art critic.

So what? In 1600 a bigger chick had a better chance of surviving childbirth and the plague of the week. In 2012 a skinnier chick has a better chance of surviving by snagging a guy with money who is looking for a hot piece of @ss instead of a big one. Survival of the fittest (no pun intended)

It reminds me of a Cheers episode when Sam was trying to learn about art.

"Hey Diane, did this Ruben guy invent the sandwiches?"
"No Sam, why do yo think that?"
"Looks like his models really liked eating"

Also one artwork does not qualify the plural nudes since only one subject is in full nudity.

This thread is going to get out of control.

It's going to get out of control and we'll be lucky to make it out alive.

While this is a brilliant idea for social commentary, I don't see the "grotesque" aspect the article writer commented on.

Maybe I'm just warped by porn. Like every other Farker.

There was a reason we didn't have size zero models in life drawing class. Didn't have a problem with it then. Don't have a problem with it now.

/Problem? The problem is you.

I have love handles, and I used to hate them. But now I kinda love them. I need to be sent back to the days where that was acceptable.

But what happens if you play around with a reproduction of this beloved painting on your computer and reduce her waistline to meet the demands of a modern catwalk or magazine? Italian artist Anna Utopia Giordano did - and the results, online at annautopiagiorani.it, are shocking and grotesque. They make you realise how remote in attitudes to the body the great nudes of art are from contemporary ideals of beauty, and how bizarre and limiting our own perspective is.

The contemporary idea of beauty has nothing to do with catwalks or magazine covers unless you're a gay male clothing designer.

Clearly, I need the Doctor to take me back to the renaissance, where I'll be adored like a celebrity.

Asked another artist friend of mine why he liked to draw/paint nude women-he looked at me, shocked saying "why they're beautiful, women are so wonderful to draw, paint so many curves..."

Really? Birth of Venus is your star example? That's not a Fat Venus. That's not even a Chubby Venus. And the remade example is beyond thin and into skinny.

At least start with something Rubenesque, maybe. Sheesh.

My wife is hot and I have a good job. Anecdotal evidence is the best kind.

You know what they say, the paintbrush adds 15 pounds.
