Live nude girl : my life as an object

Image of item
"Live Nude Girl is a lively meditation on the profession of nude modeling-that "spine-tingling combination of power and vulnerability, submission and dominance" - as it has been practiced in history and as it is practiced today. Kathleen Rooney draws on her own experiences working as an artists' model, as well as on the stories of famous, notorious, and mysterious artists and models through the ages. Combining personal perspective, historical anecdote, and witty prose, Rooney reveals that both the appeal of posing nude for artists and the appeal of drawing the naked figure lie in our deeply human responses to beauty, sex, love, and death."--BOOK JACKET.
