Exhibition of the Nude Man in Art from 1800 to the Present Day
While it has long been accepted for the female nude to be regularly exhibited in galleries across the world, the male nude has not been accorded the same treatment. In the autumn of 2012 the Leopold Museum in Vienna broke the taboo with an exhibition entitles nude men.
The Musée d'Orsay, Paris is now to follow suit with and exhibition entitled ‘Masculine / Masculine’, drawing on the wealth of its own collections and of other French public collections, aims to take an interpretive, playful, sociological and philosophical approach to exploring all aspects and meanings of the male nude in art.
