Appropriately, this pioneering history of the depiction of the human body, which began with the Mellon Lectures, was largely written in the home of Bernard Berenson, the art historical master to whom it is dedicated. In ancient times, the nude had been used to express fundamental human needs, for instance, the need for harmony and order Apollo versus the need to sublimate sexual desire Venus. Clark, the most refined and sophisticated of critics, was also surreptitiously advancing a very British kind of popular paganism through his acknowledgment of the power of Eros. In hindsight, The Nude can be identified as a turning point for the incipient sexual revolution of the 60s. Probably no one would be more surprised at this suggestion than Clark. In his writing, the former academic historian aims to celebrate and admire the sensuality of the naked human form, expressing himself elegantly and without over-complication.
