Abstract:

As the Society for the Suppression of Vice prowled 19th-century England, the educated classes were learning to celebrate the naked body. Shielded by the Protestant Reformation from the great tradition of Catholic iconography, a country with no tradition of painting nudes was flooded with European art after the Napoleonic wars. Victorians were wary of the morally suspect French nude and so sought an ideal in English literature, notably Shakespeare, Milton, and Spenser's ''Faerie Queene'' and in popular legend. This video catalog presents examples from the exhibition ''Exposed: The Victorian Nude, '' which ran at the Tate Britain in London from November 2001 through January 2002.
