“What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment”
The mission of NU MUSES is to celebrate the forgotten art of the classic nude, to capture the elegance and romance of the female form, worthy of gracing fine art galleries and walls. To once again remind and inspire, through 24 nude fine art images of timelessly beautiful women.
Over the past five years in the high-end luxury publishing market, Steve Shaw & Co have built a reputation of unparalleled artistry and taste with Treats! More than a fine art publication, Treats! is a premium multi-media experience, featuring scintillating photography, editorials, videos, & exclusive events.
