Artists offer theories on renewed interest in nude figurative work

Paul Rybarczyk

This is the second of three stories examining a rising interest in nude figurative work on the East End.

Last week’s Great Nude Invitational Art Fair in Manhattan waved a philosophical flag that a shift was in the wind: Interest in collecting and making work inspired by the nude is on an upswing. The rising interest in the nude has also been evident on the East End, with signposts showing the way for months.

A nude exhibition, Body + Soul, was held at the Tulla Booth Gallery in Sag Harbor in February and March. Throughout the show, a photograph of a female nude torso overlooked Sag Harbor’s Main Street.
