The Naked & The Nude

Works on Paper from the Barber’s Collection

The naked body has inspired some of the greatest works of art, and the study of it was long regarded as vital to demonstrate artistic mastery in representing both the ideal and the everyday.

Intended to add context to Zoffany’s fascinating painting, A Life Class, currently on loan to the Barber, this display features strikingly different images of the unclothed human figure, with works made between 1500 and 1914 by Durer, Van Dyck and Matisse, among others.
