Throughout her twenties, Kelley Swain worked as an artists' model. 'The Naked Muse' is her elegant, fascinating memoir of this time, meditating on art, travel, and how we accept, inhabit, and understand our own bodies. She describes her first experience disrobing for a class, modelling for international artists over six years, an intensive month being painted in Bruges, and posing as saints for a Sicilian chapel frieze. Swain reveals how it really feels physically, intellectually, and emotionally - in the moment when it's my matter that matters, t ... what I consider to be 'me'. Both a flirtation with submissiveness and a wielding of power, Swain examines the model's role in art's alchemy, and tells the forgotten stories of women whose faces still bewitch us from gallery walls.
