Before the advent of social media and self-expression on the Internet, German multimedia artist Jans Bock-Schroeder worked as a fashion photographer in the fashion capitals, New York, London, Milan, and Paris.

In his brief career in the fashion industry, he photographed some of the most beautiful women in the world, for magazines and advertising campaigns. During the shoots, Bock-Schroeder created images for his own archive. He soon realised that he could not express his creativity to its entire extent and decided to concentrate on art photography and painting.

History of nude art

In the history of art, nudes are one of the oldest and most multifaceted motifs. Early civilizations (Sumer, Egypt, Crete, India, etc.) depicted nudes. Its development can be traced from Ancient Greece (from 1200 BC to 600 AD) sculpture to modern European art.

In the Middle Ages, nudes were only permitted for religious subject matter that demanded depictions of nudity.

It was not until the 20th century that nudes were liberated from their restriction of religious and mythological motivations and were allowed to unfold in multifaceted forms across all forms of art.

The nude in art is not confined to the representation of the human body but enables artists to express inner values such as emotions, feelings, visions, anxieties, and aspirations.

Virtually no other subject than the human body is more capable of communicating and expressing abstract conceptions via art.

Engaging with nude art can be an enduring and inexhaustible source of inspiration.

A nude painting by the Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani has been sold at auction in 2018 for 157 million dollars. The work "Reclining Nude (on the Left)" from 1917 is the third highest-priced painting being sold at auction in the history of Sotheby's auction house, which was founded in 1744.
