It also offers examples of 20th century art. Egon Schiele and Richard Gerstl are the key representatives of radical self-observation in the mirror of the naked self. However, this volume also presents artists such as Jean Cocteau, Antonio Canova, Johann Heinrich Füssli, David Hockney, Ferdinand Hodler, Edvard Munch, Auguste Rodin, Andy Warhol, Nan Goldin and Louise Bourgeois. It contains a variety of essays that examine concepts such as masculinity and the construction of identity, male desire in modern art and the naked man as a motif in advertising."--Publisher's website.
