Artistic renditions of the human form and figure have been a part of art since its inception. Figure art focuses on reproducing the human form, and the approaches to this can range in style from starkly realistic and anatomically correct creations to abstract compositions, and every which way in between.

With figure art, the emphasis is given to the form and shape of the subject, historically based off live models, though in recent times the use of photography for reference is more common, and focuses on the shape and line work of the human figure, to develop a fully fleshed out composition.

Some artists choose to focus on the relation of dark and light, and how it can form subtle and beautiful shapes worthy of recreation. While nude presentations of the subject can be common in figure art, the subject can be also be presented fully clothed, and in a variety of positions.
