Why Artists Paint mostly Female Nude – Why not Male? (From The Painter’s Heart)

For a long time I tried to find an answer for this question. I didn’t get the answer. Through years of artistic growth, on one fine day, I got the answer.

The answer is … Curves. Curves express beauty. All female forms are structured with curves. Male form does not have much of them. Observe…Everything or form in Nature is structured with Curves. We won’t find those beautiful curves in man made structures however skilfully they may be structured.

That’s why all great artists have been trying to experience Nature’s divine beauty through painting the female form. This is the truth I have understood.
