For the acclaimed photographer Saul Leiterthe camera provided an alternative way of seeing, of framing events and interpreting reality. Best known for his street photography characterized by abstracted forms and radically innovative compositions, the artist also explored the female body through a compelling series of nudes spanning three decades of his career. Since Leiter was also a painter, his masterful use of the two media comes to the fore in these remarkable pieces.

A figure study is a drawing or painting of the human body made in preparation for a more composed or finished work;  or to learn drawing and painting techniques in general and the human figure in particular. By preference, figure studies are done from a live modelbut may also include the use of other references  and the imagination of the artist. The live model may be clothed, or nudebut is usually nude for student work in order to learn human anatomy.
