Uncovering the Body

Idealised nudes from mythological and religious scenes contrast with uncompromising, and occasionally grotesque, studies of the human form.

Complementing the major exhibition Bellows and the Body, this display includes stylistically diverse works from a broad time period, with drawings and prints by artists such as Tiepolo, William Orpen, and a recently acquired nude study by Augustus John.
