WINTER/SPRING EDITION, 2014
(The THEME... GOING MOBILE and HELPING ARTISTS!)
Every magazine has to change with its audience, and our growth and evolution depend on our ability to create MEANINGFUL CONTENT for the various Subscribers of this webmagazine. (You wouldn't believe how many different kinds of subscribers we now have
between the website, social media and video services.)

Our audience is also going MOBILE, and we are challenged to meet the needs of a larger,
faster growing segment of THEGREATNUDE audience, which wants to see artwork in VIDEO format, rather than waiting to download the high-resolution images we normally publish.

Many new subscribers want to see more videos about Artists producing wonderful and provocative artworks, they also want to see interesting interviews and high-quality close-ups of artworks that may be banned or at least frowned upon in their communities.
They also like the Artists of TheGreatNude Registry!!!

Going forward, we'll be highlighting the works of the Artists of TheGreatNude Registry both editorially, and through our increasing use of video to feature our Artists on our popular YouTube Channel.

Artists and Galleries that want to be included can do so by
subscribing to TheGreatNude.tv here>

 
Sincerely,
Jeffrey Wiener, Publisher: TheGreatNude.tv

Vincent Desiderio
NEW WORKS @Marlborough Gallery
01.2014 • Video Review by Jeff Wiener

In spite of a frigid January evening, I joined an exuberant crowd for the opening of Vincent Desiderio's exhibition of new works at Marlborough Gallery on 57th Street. This was a sprawling show of small and large works, featuring a number of delightful figurative studies that one can only appreciate up close.

To me art is a very personal thing.  It’s all about visual communication between the artist and the viewer. If a piece of art moves you and speaks to you it is a great painting no matter the medium or style. If it makes you want to take it into your life and live with it It is a Great painting.

The common thread though out my work is my fascination with the figure; “It’s timeless beautiful and fascinating”. Additional inspiration comes from variety of places ranging from the old masters paintings to modern day advertising, graffiti and body art. My goal is combine these elements together, along with my imagination into a cohesive whole that intrigues and engages the viewer.

Drawing APPs on the iPad2
Jeffrey Wiener: Publisher, TheGreatNude.tv

Like many practitioners of "Life Drawing", over the years I have collected a broad set of tools and techniques for capturing that moment on paper. I am also a digital artist, and deeply fascinated by the process of using software and digital input tools to create art. Here's a multimedia article about my experiences using the iPad for life-drawing.

The Body and Beyond
A Series by Lilianne Milgrom

Our newest editorial contributor, Registry Artist Lilianne Milgrom, will be reporting on the nude in art and the nude AS art in a series entitled The Body and Beyond. We'll follow her travels around the world in her search for the next Great Nude. She personally experienced this cacophony of divergent opinions during her recent stint at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris as the authorized copyist of Gustav Courbet's 1866 masterwork L'origine du monde (The Origin of the World).

SMALL WORKS

The Third Annual Governor’s Island Art Fair, organized by 4Heads, is a carnival-like event held each weekend on Governor’s Island during the month of September. Over one hundred exhibitors are using the rooms inside the former barracks of this U.S. Coast Guard property, their home in the middle of New York harbor up until only several years ago, to showcase the works of artists of almost every stripe.

On our opening weekend, crowds were thick with locals and tourists from around the world, who seemed to descend on the island in one fell swoop. Then at the hieght of the afternoon, our model arrived, and we began our Sketch Session Demonstration. Exhibiting artists were joined by exhibit visitors who took advantage of the art supplies and extra chairs.

An Interview with Collector
Howard Tullman

New York Academy of Art, October, 2010
Howard Tullman's Loft, Chicago, November, 2010


For the past few decades, the Figurative Arts have had few champions in the marketplace like collector Howard Tullman. This Chicago entrepreneur has been buying art for over 40 years and has amassed one of the largest collections of nudes I've ever seen. Tullman also supports the arts in several other notable ways. In New York, Howard is on the board of the New York Academy of Art and in Chicago, Tullman has launched a professional digital arts school called Tribeca Flashpoint Academy.
