Naked Before the Camera - Last Week at the MET

Who is to say what makes art? What new invention or technology will change art forever? When the camera was new artist used photographic nudes as artist studies. When does the artist study shift to become art. Were these nineteenth-century black and whites just made as eye candy or were they a new way to show the beauty of the human body. Victorian Notions keep most of these pictures censored and out of England and America. Yet in places like Paris and Berlin this new art of photography was allowed to go naked. This exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum shows the beginning of this movement and the way it progressed through the twentieth-century. This is your chance to get an eye full and it will make you wonder where art will go next.
