> DESCRIPTION

Old Master paintings are alive with vivacious, seductive and curious figures.

Divine Bodies combines exceptional European pre-1800 paintings from the Hatton, Shipley and Laing Art Gallery collections with important loans, including many exciting contemporary artworks.

The exhibition ranges from historical pictures by Zurbarán, Wtewael and Procaccini to contemporary works by Cindy Sherman, Marina Abramovic and John Currin. They reveal intriguing links across the centuries, depicting themes such as idealisation and imperfection, allure and shame, and youth and ageing in relation to both male and female bodies.
