The human figure has always been an essential motif for mankind. And it have always been a cultural documents of the times, as was the case with the first cave paintings, and all representations of past and present epochs are a reflection of the present.

Wilhelm Drach fascinates with expressively abstracted representationalism in sensually pastose colours.
Robert Staudinger paints the pure aesthetics of human corporeality with the camera, in order to reshape it by folding it, like a surgical operation.
Emil Toman (1923 - 2007) reduced the feminine as well as the masculine in his drawings to spontaneously erotic symbolism.
