The Bare Essentials - The Human Body from Innocence to Experience

Monday 15 July - Wednesday 16 July, 11am-1.30pm

The naturalistic and unobscured depiction of the human body has been one of the ways in which artists have sought to display their skill ever since the Renaissance, and the ways in which they have chosen to do so have evolved in parallel with both changing artistic styles and moral and political thought. By looking at the ways in which the naked body is depicted over the course of European history, we can get closer to the societies in which they were depicted, and come to understand the people in an apparently more intimate way. The modes of depiction of the naked form vary strongly from innocence to experience, and from holy purity to wholly abandoned, and often it can be difficult to tell which is which. Over 3 mornings this course will look at the art chronologically and will consider different categories of nude – both sacred and profane – across history. Taught by Richard Stemp.
