Art and Judaism

Mirty wrote about Jewish art and her attempts to be a Jewish artist

Here are my comments to her post:

There are some fantastic artists here in Shiloh, and even I've sold "sunrises."
About the nudes, my neighbor, Rabbi Dov Berkovits discussed the issue recently at a shiur. He said that the worst thing is that the art students are taught to think of the human body as a simple, ordinary object to be copied, as if it were just a vase or fruit.
