Product Description:
The Victorian Nude Video. In this program, Tate Britain's Alison Smith explores contradictory Victorian attitudes toward the nude in painting and sculpture. Topics include attempts to characterize the English nude, the classical nude as an expression of moral and spiritual ideals, the mystique of the artist's studio, the sensational nudes of the later Victorian years, and modern depictions of the naked human form that began to emerge around 1900. The works of William Etty, William Blake Richmond, Annie Swynnerton, Edward Burne-Jones, John William Waterhouse, Frederic Leighton, Henry Scott Tuke, William Orpen, John Singer Sargent, and others are featured. (37 minutes.) Art History, Art and Photography 2002.
