This exhibition examines a theme that has been central to the iconography of photography since the invention of the medium : the representation of the body unveiled in the genre of the nude. The aim of this initiative is to present major developments and innovative figures in the history of photography. This would not have been possible, conservative efforts apart, if photography were only a part of an exhibition including every type of media. It was the intention of the curator to dedicate equal attention to the incubabula of photography and to the presentation of never-before-published material. All too often, for reasons of convenience, we see the same images in circulation.

Poetry. Translated by Norma Cole. NUDE is a hilarious set of adventures, a retelling in a striking array of contemporary lyric forms of the story of Susannah and the elders. A zany send-up, these poems are a set of adventures, family outings, romps and trysts in hotel rooms on the Riviera. In this brilliant translation, Portugal's poems are at their most whimsical and heterogeneous. "You really know painting/ the true distance/ stepping back/ the cat's eye in the manufacture of marbles/ flowerpot to flowers/ strong/ red of the red bean/ you should have a Sugar Daddy even a tired one/ even an ugly one/ the hereditary symmetry of the rodeo/ and its raging desire/ to make you dance/ whistling to yourself/ think think of the kid from Cliff/ who relaxes/ and lets a crumb fall into your lap/ You really know painting" - Untitled.

Rembrandt’s extraordinary paintings of female nudes—Andromeda, Susanna, Diana and her Nymphs, Danaë, Bathsheba—as well as his etchings of nude women, have fascinated many generations of art lovers and art historians. But they also elicited vehement criticism when first shown, described as against-the-grain, anticlassical—even ugly and unpleasant. However, Rembrandt chose conventional subjects, kept close to time-honored pictorial schemes, and was well aware of the high prestige accorded to the depiction of the naked female body. Why, then, do these works deviate so radically from the depictions of nude women by other artists? To answer this question Eric Jan Sluijter, in Rembrandt and the Female Nude, examines Rembrandt’s paintings and etchings against the background of established pictorial traditions in the Netherlands and Italy. Exploring Rembrandt’s intense dialogue with the works of predecessors and peers, Sluijter demonstrates that, more than any other artist, Rembrandt set out to incite the greatest possible empathy in the viewer, an approach that had far-reaching consequences for the moral and erotic implications of the subjects Rembrandt chose to depict. In this richly illustrated study, Sluijter presents an innovative approach to Rembrandt’s views on the art of painting, his attitude towards antiquity and Italian art of the Renaissance, his sustained rivalry with the works of other artists, his handling of the moral and erotic issues inherent in subjects with female nudes, and the nature of his artistic choices.

Controversy surrounding nudity in art is as strong now as it was during the 19th century. Selected Victorian paintings of the nude are still hidden from public view. In this work, the author unravels the background to this situation and reveals the paradox of the nude as an object of public moral outrage. The text reveals how images of the nude were used at all levels of Victorian culture, from high-art paintings to photographs and popular entertainments. It questions whether these were a valid form of representation or, in fact, pornography. The nude was considered to be the most prestigious and pure form of art, whilst at the same time was vilified by the state because of its incitement to unregulated sexual activity. The book includes discussion on the work of Lord Leighton, Burne-Jones, Rosetti, Millais, Watts, Waterhouse, Henrietta Rae and Anna Lea Merritt.

Carol Ann Duffy's outstanding first collection, Standing Female Nude, introduced readers to all they would come to love about her poetry. From lovers to wives to war photographers, the poems it contains range from the delicately poignant to the fiercely political, exploring memory, gender, childhood and place. Within it are also some of her best-known poems, including 'Education for Leisure', as well as, of course, the poem from which the collection takes its title. First published in 1985 to widespread critical acclaim, Standing Female Nude is a work of startling originality and the starting point of the Poet Laureate's dazzling poetic career.
