Exposed: The Victorian Nude


A gently used copy with very mild wear. This exhibition catalog was first published in London on the occasion of the exhibition at Tate Britain, London, 1 November 2001 - 27 January 2002, with a tour to include a stop in the US-Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York, 6 September 2002 - 5 January 2003. 288 pages, with Bibliography, Lenders and Credits, and Index. Numerous illustrations. From the dust jacket: "The exposure of the body through representations of the nude was one of the most controversial issues in Victorian art. In an era that witnessed a broader audience for art and the development of new reproductive technologies, the nude was implicated in a variety of debates concerning public health and morals, which meant it could not be comfortably contained within the confines of high cultureā€¦ This illustrated publication surveys the full range of Victorian representations of female and male figures. While concentrating on painting, sculpture and drawing, it also explores the depiction of the body in other media, including photography, popular illustration and film, exposing issues of morality, sexuality and desire that remain relevant today." Large, heavy book that will require extra postage if expedited or international delivery is desired.
