NUDE: ART FROM THE TATE COLLECTION
The Nude is central to the history of western art. Symbolizing beauty, expressing love, and reflecting on what it means to be human, artists’ representation of the naked body is also continuously challenging and controversial.
Tate’s renowned collection of historic, modern, and contemporary art includes paintings ranging from late 19th century Victorian depictions of classical mythology and history, to present-day politicized representations of the artist’s own body. This exhibition tells the story of the depiction of the naked body over the span of 200 years of western art history.
Through the presentation of approximately 130 artworks – paintings, sculptures, works on paper and photographs – visitors will see how the representation of the nude has evolved in the context of both artistic expression and shifts in social and political attitudes.
