Exposed: The Victorian Nude

Exposed will survey the full range of the Victorian nude, both male and female. It will concentrate on the nude in painting, drawing and sculpture, but will also explore artistic representations of the naked body in other media, including photography, popular illustration and film. The exhibition will examine these works in relation to issues of morality, sexuality and desire that remain as relevant today as they were then. The exhibition is presented in several thematic sections including The Classical Nude; The Private Nude; The Artist's Studio; Sensation! The Nude in High Art; The Modern Nude. The exhibition takes us from the early, old-masterly work of figures such as William Etty, through Pre-Raphaelitism and Aestheticism, to High Victorian Classicism and the experimental Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art at the end of the period. The exhibition will demonstrate the importance of the nude for the most famous Victorian artists, including Millais, Rossetti, Burne-Jones, Whistler and Sargent, and also pivotal figures in the history of early English Modernism, including Sickert and Gwen John. Alongside these acknowledged masters, the exhibition will include fascinating works by lesser-known artists, such as Simeon Solomon, Herbert Draper, Theodore Roussel and Henry Scott Tuke.
