The Heroic Nude
Lecture no. 13 from the course: Great Artists of the Italian Renaissance
Taught by Professor William Kloss | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses
This lecture considers two artists of the male nude. Antonio del Pollaiuolo's figures are violently dramatic. Luca Signorelli used more static, contemplative poses, but he also created astonishingly physical nudes in Resurrection of the Dead and The Damned Consigned to Hell.
