Undressing Paintings: Japanese Nudes 1880-1945

Meiji Era art circles were scandalised when Japan's daubers adopted the Western tradition of painting nudes in the late-19th century. Momat's mildly titillating exhibition chronicles the infiltration of naked flesh into the country's artistic landscape, with 100 paintings spanning six decades, including work by surrealist Harue Koga, cubist Tetsugoro Yorozu and yōga portraitist Sotaro Yasui. Art or smut? You decide.
