A tour of ‘The Renaissance Nude’ designed for wheelchair users and mobility impaired visitors.

The 15th and 16th centuries were a pivotal time for the nude in Western art. A renewed interested in ancient Greek and Roman art brought the human body to the forefront of artistic innovation. This exhibition explores these important changes in a selection of exquisite works. From full-scale paintings to jewel-like miniatures, bronze statuettes to anatomical studies, these works contrast idealised beauty with the ageing body, and public images with more intimate, private pieceworks.

Join us for this early morning tour as we trace the development of the nude through works by some of the great masters of the Renaissance including Titian, Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo, Dürer and Cranach.

This event includes refreshments and volunteer support is provided.
