Art or Eroticism: The Male Form Uncovered

18.00 (BST) / 13.00 (EST)

Join us on Monday 14 June to discuss the male form throughout art history.

Bonhams specialists Matthew Haley and Anastasia Orfanidou will be in discussion with Henry Miller (Henry Miller Fine Art), Ian Rank-Broadley (Sculptor), and Madeleine Perridge (Gallery Director, Kallos Gallery) covering topics such as why male frontal nudity has been seen as threatening or taboo, how classical and modern artists approached it, whether the male nude is always erotic to some degree, and how female artists handle the male nude.
