Venus, the Roman goddess of love and other stuff, emerges naked from the ocean on a huge clamshell.  Painted in 1486 this huge painting is a nice starting point for our study of the nude. Venus’s innocent expression and long flowing hair add a nice sense of modesty to the overall composition. In fact, with hair like that you could paint me nude. Almost.
