About The Naked Form in Modern Chinese Art

The Naked Form in Modern Chinese Art is a free display in Gallery 29 at the Ashmolean Musuem available until 15 September 2019.

While the nude was not a traditional subject in Chinese art, it became a common theme in the early to the mid-twentieth century after being introduced to China by artists who studied internationally. Explore a selection of images of the naked human form as they appear in Chinese art from the 1930s to the present day.
