The Male Nude, an overview: Girodet, Rodin, Mapplethorpe

The human body, whether male or female, has always been at the very center of representations. Minoan (c.2700-c. 1100 BC) and Mycenaean (c.1600- c.1100 BC) civilizations already had representations of their gods and goddesses, based on the models of the human body.
