A new thematic tour of the permanent collection encourages participants to focus on one of the most important genres in the history of art: the nude.

The nude as a genre has undergone countless transformations over time. In the 21st century it continues to arouse interest above and beyond its role as a merely academic exercise, while in addition it has provided the inspiration for some of the most outstanding examples of world art. Finally, it continues to represent one of the principal links to the classical tradition, influencing our way of perceiving physical perfection.
