Over 20 works by artists such as Rodin, Bacon and Freud reveal a range of different responses to the human body.

About

The exhibition is centred around Burne-Jones' 1878 Pygmalion series, which is used to set out the five themes for exploration. As well as looking at how the body has been a focus of artistic observation throughout history, the display picks out examples that depict visions of an 'ideal body', mutations of the body and how the body has been used as a vehicle for imagination and fantasy. 

A series of notable artists feature, including Auguste Rodin, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Helen Chadwick and Lucian Freud.
