Beautiful, sensual and at times provocative, more than 100 artworks from the Tate, London, will tell the story of the nude and trace artists’ captivation with the human body over the last two centuries. At the heart of the show is Auguste Rodin’s marble sculpture 'The Kiss', which – although celebrated worldwide – is travelling outside Europe for the first time. Other renowned works include Picasso’s 'Nude woman in a red chair' (1932) and Bonnard’s 'The bath' (1925).
A comprehensive programme of events, many of them free, complements the exhibition with something for every art-lover to enjoy. Join a pop-up tour, free with exhibition entry, at 1pm and 3pm daily and browse The Body Laid Bare inspired exhibition gifts and mementoes in the Gallery shop.
