I believe the term “artistic nude” is somewhat an hypocrisy. I take pictures of figure studies, I’m interested in the naked body and how the light plays on it. I don’t care to seduce the viewer, just to expose the secrets of beauty. I try to select only the models that are comfortable with this level of exposure. If you still want to call this “artistic”, you’re welcome.
You are too modest. Only prude people make the decision of calling a picture artistic or not dependent on the "degree" of nudity shown. I consider that a carefully and beautifully composed picture like this is art without any doubt.
