For centuries, artists have drawn, sculpted, and painted images of the human figure. The way their hair is falling, a freckle on the skin, or the way a single pointed finger is illustrated can bring the image to life.
Female figures tend to be popular, dressing up or dressing down in a variety of ways. Art like “The Couch” by Daniel Grant hints at seduction, leaving a bit of mystery by not revealing the woman’s face.
Many of these images have a purpose. As Nicholas Robertson says of “A Private Man,” this painting is of a man “who is beginning to realize that his best physical days are behind him.”
Can the long loved subjectmatter of the human figure find its way into your home? What room needs a little more of a “lively” touch? Ponder that while you browse the selections of figure art at Zatista.com.
