There is also a judgement of taste; the fine art nude being part of high culture rather than middle brow or low culture. During most of the twentieth century, the depiction of human beauty was of little interest to modernists, who were concerned instead with the creation of beauty through formal means. The introductory chapter makes though does not originate the often-quoted distinction  between the naked body and the nude.
