A highlight of the Spring exhibition season, this show features treasures of draughtsmanship, illumination, painting and sculpture, with sacred and secular works by artists such as Titian, Michelangelo, Durer and Cranach. The exhibition traces the development of the nude through some of the greatest masters of the Renaissance. The product collection reflects not only the overt richness and beauty on show, but also the unexpected humour, the realities of the human form, and the innovation of the artists involved. Ideal bodies, real bodies, male bodies, female bodies, and the perspectives of same have inspired silks, soaps, sponges and sweetmeats.
