Artwork of the month: 5 favorite nudes at the MIA

28April 2011

I admire these works for their beauty, their composition, and their important historical value.
They are also nudes, which I believe we all like.  Anyway, enjoy them.

“I have no problem with nudity.  I can look at myself.  I like walking around nude.  It doesn’t bother me.  I see all the people walking around nude; it doesn’t bother me.”
-Ursula Andress
