Interpreting the Nude in Italian Renaissance Art
The nude was a common representation in Italian Renaissance Art, so much so that the Italians were famed internationally for this type of imagery. Dr. Mathews addresses various types of nude figures - religious, erotic, allegorical, scientific, and heroic - assessing the social and cultural functions that they played and the meanings they had for patrons and audiences in Renaissance Italy.
The Boca Raton Museum of Art partners with the Friends of the Uffizi Gallery to investigate different aspects of the Italian museum’s collection and its cultural impact.
