Nude drawings of Raphael Santi. Drawing the nude a major challenge!

The Nude Drawings of Raphael can be used as an example or as the artists Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Edgar Degas did with the drawings of the French artist Forain, to use for repeating, again and again, to get in the drawing skill.

Drawing the nude has always been a major challenge for Raphael as for other artists.

Raphael Santi is one of my favorite nude artists. Other preferred artists are Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Jules Pascin.
