Renaissance Nudes and the Power of Looking (Exhibition: The Renaissance Nude)

Jill Burke, senior lecturer at the Edinburgh College of Art, investigates how Renaissance people understood their reactions to looking at images of the naked body. Taking a broad, pan-European approach, Burke delves into medical, literary, and spiritual writings of the Renaissance to consider how sight was understood to impact the body and mind. A close analysis of images reveals how depictions of the naked body were believed to enhance religious devotion, affect the course of disease, form beautiful babies, or drive viewers wild with desire. Museum Lecture Hall, Free | Advance ticket required,
