Naked versus Nude.  The “official” distinction is that someone depicted as “nude” doesn’t realize they are being watched.  The term “naked”  (or “nekkid” as we say in the South, usually followed by “as a Jaybird”) implies something post-Genesis naughty.  Unless a work is out and out “porn” one should always refer to it as  “nude”.

Clothed or not, artist Greg Decker’s figures wear it well.
