Nathan Hackett admits he’ll never possess the confidence of a nude art model. Standing naked in a packed room reflecting on one’s own nakedness, while unfathomable to Hackett, must be liberating for the model.
Hackett pokes fun at this odd circumstance when everyone remains dressed except the art model, in his illustration of an art class drawing a male model. He reminds us that it’s not X-rated to draw a nude in a figure drawing class. Instead, it’s art.
