Nude Revival

The Getty Museum presents a special exhibit. "Naked Revival".

The Nude genre - a stripped or partially dressed human body - has been featured in European art for thousands of years. After 1400, with the departure of the Middle Ages, artists began to depict nudes more and more three-dimensional, colorful and realistic - that is, more immediate and earthly.

Renaissance artists have changed the course of the history of Western art, making the nude figure the center of their creativity. Drawing inspiration from classical sculpture and studying the living model, these artists created realistic, vivid and sensual ideas about the human body.

The exhibition Naked Revival presents more than 100 works by Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Durer and other famous masters of the Renaissance. The exhibition explores the events that raised the Nu genre to a key role in art between 1400 and 1530.

Based on the materials of the official site Getty Museum.
