Leading art historian Tim Marlow presents a four-part series exploring the nude in art. This comprehensive and illuminating series charts the portrayal of the naked body throughout history from Classical times through the Renaissance and the Enlightenment to the Modern Era.

The Renaissance 
Marlow travels to England, France and Italy on a lively, visual journey illustrating how the Christian idea of nudity associated with sin was replaced with ideas of nudity being associated with beauty and sensuality. Included are Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’, Michelangelo’s ‘David’ and Giotto’s ‘The Last Judgement’.
