The Nude in all its Glory… and Shame

By S. Vasiliou

This poster aims to highlight the physical implications that conflicting socio-cultural and socio-political views have on works of art, focusing particularly on nude works in the 19th century. It presents examples of damage and alterations carried out, on statues and paintings, as a result of evolving philosophies, and explains why such actions should be defined as vandalism.
Target audience: Students studying conservation, art history and fine art.
