The History of Female Figures
There is a long history of female figures being depicted in art. Throughout history, art depicting the female figure has been used for purposes of hieroglyphs, religious purposes, anatomy, and for aesthetic appeal.
The female figure is a popular and old art motif that is still used to this day. Let’s take a look at the long history of female figures in art.
Human figure art existed since prehistoric times, being seen in paintings in caves dating back to the Stone Age. In Ancient Egypt, statues were created for pharaohs which included both women and men wearing their royal garments.
In Ancient Central Africa, female bodies were portrayed abstractly and often featured a heart-shaped face. African mother and child sculptures were popular to ensure fertility. Ancient Greece also specialized in women statues, depicting the beauty and perfection of the gods.
These statues were often partially naked and highlighted the curvature of the female figure. The Romans also created art depicting women body, idealizing their shape and form.
Religious art showing the female body flourished in the Middle Ages, although the female figure was usually clothed. While mosaics and paintings in the church depicted women figures clothed, the naked female form was seen in drawings.
Nude models were introduced during medieval times, stemming from the 13th century. In the beginning, nude models were used to study anatomy instead of aesthetic purposes. It wasn’t until the Renaissance that the female body was depicted in art for aesthetic appeal once again.
The Renaissance brought back the classical Greek and Roman depiction of the woman body, which idealizes the shape of a nude female body. The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli is an example of Renaissance art that focused on the shape of the female body.
Using a realist style, Botticelli portrayed the body more accurately and realistic than the Medieval art that came before. The painting is regarded as the first non-religious nude since the ancient art.
In the early 16th century, Leonardo da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa, which has since become one of the most well-known paintings in the world even to this day. The painting marked an upgraded style of realism and featured a woman whose eyes followed the viewer.
Edouard Manet’s Olympia which was painted in 1856 was a nude depiction of the female body that showed the subject looking straight at the viewer. As part of the art nouveau movement, a movement that refers to art right before modern art dating from 1890 to 1910, erotic images of females became popular.
The female figure is usually portrayed as naked and is very popular today in abstract art. Studying how the female body is depicted within various time periods can convey beauty standards of the era and gives further insight into previous cultures and how they viewed the world.
Today, female bodies remain a common motif in the art world used in both abstract and realist forms.
