When not working a commission project, or sometimes in the middle of one, just to take a break, I will draw a nude. After awhile, I developed some skill at them. And over time, acquired quite a few nude works I was proud of. But no one wanted to see them. They are forbidden from all the art shows I've attended. Likewise with any requested public displays of my work. But those displays seemed incomplete to me, as I felt some of my best work had become my work on nudes. In the late 1990's, when eBay became available, I was able to "show and sell some of my nudes there. Later, I discovered Deviant Art and could post some there, as long as they were labeled "mature" (more on that later). But what did people do before the internet? Indeed, what do most artists do now with their nude work?
In 2010, Bram Dijkstra, professor emeritus at UC San Diego, published a wonderful book called, "Naked, The Nude in America". It is a history of the portrayal of the nude in American art. In many ways, the introduction is the most fascinating part. He discusses how since the 1950's American museums in fear of protests and loss of public funding, have removed many nudes form their displays and relegated them to storage, or worse, deaccessioned them, removing them permanently from public view. Likewise, many unsold nude works were left in storage by the artists that created them, later to be further hidden away, or even destroyed by embarrassed relatives.
I won't bother explaining on an artistic website why nudes are important in training, development and expression. But even here on DA, nudes are banned on some groups and always curtained with a "mature" barrier.
I've never seen an art museum with a warning sign on the door reading, "Warning! Nudity may be encountered inside".
So, apart from eBay, DA and a short time when I ran my own public studio/gallery, my nudes are pinned on my bulletin board, or stored away in portfolios and boxes. What do other artists do with theirs?
