"The Butt" by Ellen Altfest

Great Works


The backside has never been represented with such raw realism as in American artist Ellen Altfest's 'The Butt'. Painting in meticulous detail, often taking months or even years to complete, Altfest gives her paintings of parts of the male nude a grandness usually reserved for figurative paintings by the Old Masters.
