The nude is one of the oldest and most fascinating subjects in fine art. The portrait of the naked body, removed from its everyday appearance, offers nearly inexhaustible possibilities to show the human view of himself, his ideals, fears, hopes and dreams in respect to the part he plays in the world. Between the influences of ever changing aesthetics, moral scientific and social norms the nude act as mirror as well as product of individual and collective powers at the same time. In 20th century art, released from the role as passive model for Christian and mythological subjects, the nude act experiences a distinct extension of its means of expression in respect to contents and form.

Unclothed figures often also play a part in other types of art, such as history painting , including allegorical and religious art , portraiture , or the decorative arts. From prehistory to the earliest civilizations, nude female figures are generally understood to be symbols of fertility or well-being.

This separation of the artistic form from the social and cultural issues long remained largely unexamined by classical art historians. One of the defining characteristics of the modern era in art was the blurring of the line between the naked and the nude. This likely first occurred with the painting The Nude Maja by Goya, which in drew the attention of the Spanish Inquisition.

I want so much to be supportive, but since my family is gone, I find myself afraid that I will come off as needy if I ask for attention or more affection. It had been going on for years. I am thinking about him pretty much all the time. No one knows your situation the way you do. Mormon theology is pretty clear: But Mormon theology is also rich with opportunities for second chances.
