This book examines the forces that made the nude a contentious image in the early Third Republic. Analysing the evolving relationship between the fine art nude, print culture, and censorship, the author explores how artist, art critics, politicians, bureaucrats, lawyers and judges evaluated the nude. An art form made for and by men, the nude was rarely the subject of serious engagement on the part of women. A few however, attempted to take up the issues and challenges of the nude.
