This nude from Adolf Robert Shulz captures a strange conflicting dynamic--the bold, unapologetic nature of the nude body clashes with the bashful shielded face. By rendering the oft-elevated nude body of a woman while including a gesture of fearfulness, Shulz brings the nude back into sharp relief, reminding us what the body truly is in its most visceral iteration. This drawing is in the permanent collection at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
