Artist Jenny Saville paintings are unlike any other paintings I’ve come across. Where most have celebrated societal accepted beauty, Jenny Saville does the reverse. The artist is best known for her paintings of monumental women, as her paintings leave them baring it all from inside out. Her nude portraits reveal the vulnerable side of her women, while still leaving them empowered as they are courageous enough to get naked. As shocking as some of these images are, they are beautifully painted.
