The Renaissance Nude

Published on November 8, 2018

Renaissance artists transformed the course of western art history by making the nude central to their art. Drawing inspiration from classical sculpture and the study of the live model, these artists created lifelike, vibrant, and sensual representations of the human body. Featuring more than 100 works by Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Michelangelo, Dürer, and others, this exhibition traces the nude’s gradual emergence over 130 years in Italy, France, Germany, and the Netherlands.


The exhibition runs from October 30, 2018–January 27, 2019 at the Getty Museum 1200 Getty Center Drive Los Angeles, CA 90049.
