Portrait, Figures, and Nudes

This collection of prints presents a vast array of subjects with humans as its theme.  You'll find portraits of people, famous and not; all manner of people, at work, at play, at rest, and in any other activity one can imagine; as well as human form as inspiration to creation, dressed or not.
