THE BODY LAID BARE/ TOUR OF FRENCH MASTERPIECES

Sunday, March 26th at 11.15am and 2pm

To celebrate  francophonie, the Alliance Francaise Auckland in partnership with the Auckland Art Gallery invite you to a special tour of  The Body Laid Bare: Masterpieces from Tate
A focus in English on the French artists like Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse, Auguste Rodin, Jean Hélion and the artists who were based in France for most or some of their artistic lives such as Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giocometti, Amedeo Modigliani, Man Ray, Louise Bourgeois.

Encounter the human form in all its complexity. Beautiful, sensual and at times provocative, more than 100 artworks from Tate, London, tell the story of the nude and trace artists’ captivation with the human form over the last two centuries. Journeying through time, from the classical, biblical and literary subjects of the 1800s to the body politics of contemporary art.
