Posable models or lay figures have for centuries been a fixture in artists' studios, particularly used by classical painters to arrange drapery. Through a series of illustrated essays, this book, published to accompany the exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, analyses how the artist's tool developed currency as a subject in its own right and explores the meaning and symbolism of mannequins in the work of artists from 17th-century Dutch masters to Jake and Dinos Chapman.
