Works by Jessica Craig Martin, Francesca DiMattio, Eric Fischl, Damian Loeb, Jean Pigozzi, Mark Tansey, Rob Wynne, and many others headline the 27th annual Take Home a Nude auction. This auction features over 150 unique works with all proceeds going to support the New York Academy of Art scholarships and programming initiatives. The annual Take Home a Nude art event, honoring the artist muse, takes place at Sotheby’s on October 9th.

I’m beyond excited to announce that two of my artworks, Payroll and Model Permit, for the second year in a row have been selected and exposed at Sotheby’s during the Auction Take Home a Nude. A very special thanks to the team for selecting me and congratulations to all of this year’s nominees whose works we really loved. Thank you to those who supported me, this unexpected recognition motivates us even more to do what I love - Emanuele Fiore

For more than two decades, the New York Academy of Art Take Home a Nude gala and benefit auction has playfully acknowledged art’s most traditional – and controversial – subject. Current and former students along with such artists as Ryan McGinness, Philip Pearlstein and Spencer Tunick are contributing nudes, but the auction also offers works with other subjects and in varied styles, which all reflect the academy’s dedication to rigorous formal training. This year’s 11 October event, hosted by Sotheby’s and chaired by Sotheby’s Amy Cappellazzo, will honour painter John Alexander. The gala is “an opportunity to show our best work at one of the most prestigious venues in the world,” says academy president David Kratz.
