The Aphrodite of Knidos and her successors : a historical review of the female nude in Greek art by Christine Mitchell Havelock( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christine Mitchell Havelock's book takes a much-needed new look at some of the most famous icons of Western art: the nude statues of the Greeks produced to represent Aphrodite. The Aphrodite of Knidos, by master sculptor Praxiteles, is the leading example of this form. The author analyzes the meaning of the pose of the Aphrodite of Knidos, the significance of her nudity, and her architectural setting. A survey of the statue's reception and interpretation in Greek, Roman, and modern times offers an entirely new perspective on this major work of art. Among topics examined are Praxiteles' reported use of his mistress Phryne as his model, the "pudica gesture," and the importance of small-scale versions of statues for dating the larger sculptures. The author also considers the function and religious significance of the small statues, and she includes the cultural context offered by the erotic poetry of Propertius and Ovid, two Latin poets who were fascinated by the robing and disrobing of their mistresses
