In order to slow the spread of the coronavirus, M will temporarily not receive visitors until Sunday 30 April.
The new collection presentation at M will focus on the theme of body language. In four rooms, M presents both old and contemporary artworks related to the human body. Specifically for this presentation, a number of these works are being restored with support from Delen Private Bank.
Nudes in Art
Imagine this intimate scene: a sensually lighted, tied up naked woman awaits her fate. Emotionless, she looks at the muscled man who holds an instrument of torture in his hand. Are you now imagining an erotic scene from a Hollywood blockbuster or a torture scene from a medieval saint’s legend? Such tableaux have existed for longer than you may think. From time immemorial, the human body has been a favoured subject in the visual arts: in painting, sculpture, photography, but also in other disciplines.
