Nude Kim Kardashian: but is it art? Read what famous artists have to say about nudity

Some think that the nude is only an excuse for pornography, while others just think that it’s out-dated in the art world today. Most figurative artists  will tell you something along the lines of “we don’t see them as ‘naked’ we just see beauty”. Photographer who took Kim Kardashian shots that ‘broke the internet’ insists ‘they ARE art’ and he’s ‘very proud of them’. While the debate will go on, let’s look at how some of the great artists have interpreted nudity and some nude art on Touchtalent
