The purpose of the Naturist Art Gallery is to become a natural I-Meeting point to talk, to meet, to show all about nude art and their artists display the nude model.
Nude Model in Art
Displaying the nude model is an obsession for artists in all periods.
The depiction of nudity might be your hobby or profession, but in all cases a difficult challenge.
There are nude artists, who find a relationship between form and function.
They follow the rule that beauty of the depiction of the nude model is the result of proportion.
Others opt for an abstract approach.
My favourite nude artists are Raphael Santi, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Jules Pascin.

Naturist art concerns the tension between the naturist and his or hers surroundings. It is not that the naturist by definition needs to be nude.
Naturist art by Loek de Winter, Dutch Artist, is not a picture of reality. It is an artistic genre in which the live model, the naturist, is transformed into a carrier of meanings.
Loek wants to express his inspiration from naturism. Read more: Loek de Winter, artist.
The art gallery shows that Loek is fascinated by the nude female and male form. The model seems to enjoy being nude and is often engaging the viewer with a gaze.
Browse through this online gallery and you will find original oil paintings, gouaches and classic, abstract drawings of the figure nude by Loek de Winter.
The word nude art does more than describe a subject of art. They possess the power to conjure up the image of an artist at work, of spectators variously scandalized by or appreciative of the subject on the canvas or paper.
From the antiquity to the present, the pose of the nude seems to share a few general truth and follow a handful of rules. Stripped of their clothing, every nude shares a certain vulnerability.
The nude is an idea, a reality, a scholarly study, a prurient past time. Regardless of the sophistication of the time, the nude will continue to fascinate. The Naturist Art Gallery is about that fascination.
During our cycle tour from The Netherlands to the island Sylt, Germany we finally had the opportunity to visit a few naturist campsites. And it felt good!!
Naturism to us is the feeling of freedom. Pretensions seem to fall away with the clothes. Naturists like to be nude in public, in freedom, respect for others and environment. They like to do and experience this with others.
You will find naturists especially on naturist beaches and naturist campsites. We have visited like La Jenny on the Atlantic Ocean, Le Fiscalou in The Tarn, Bélézy near Bedoin, Cap d’Agde, meeting place for naturists, nudists and nudest nudists from all over the world and Bagheera, naturist campsite on Corsica.
Being a naturist was for me the motive to set up the Naturist Art Gallery. Art with passion for the naturist lifestyle.
