Another example where the art of body painting is done in such a special way that it lands here rather than in Art's Potpourri. Australian artist Emma Hack places her nude models against luscious wallpaper background and then body paints them in the same style, resulting in spectacular results. Thanks to Jenny Downing for alerting me to this one. And although the nudity is mostly hidden by paint, I put it under the self-censorship "one click away" gimmick, just in case.
A 1933 Art Deco masterpiece by the queen of the genre, Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980) from Poland. Hidden from plain sight because of the nudity, just in case (click the picture for the painting). More on de Lempicka in the wikipedia article linked to below.
