Exploration of Human Body through Art Gets Ready to Launch in Spain

SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain – An exhibition in northern Spain that explores the representation of the human body in art previewed on Friday ahead of its opening at the weekend.

The San Telmo Museum in the Basque city of San Sebastian in northern Spain explored artistic representations of the human body between the Renaissance (14th-17th centuries) and the Age of Enlightenment (1715-1789) through the exhibition “Invention of the body: nudes, anatomy, passions.”

The organizers of the show suggest that sometime between the Renaissance and Enlightenment a new depiction of the human body was born, which up until then had been reduced to a skeletal frame, paving the way for a modern civilization of the human form.

During this pivotal moment, art and science came together like never before with anatomists requesting artists to depict their findings, radically and forever transforming the arts from then on.

The show tells the story of the representation of the human body through some 100 artworks featuring Rubens, Pedro de Mena, and Le Brun among others, and with many pieces on loan from internationally acclaimed museums like the Prado, Thyssen and Louvre.

The show runs at the San Telmo in San Sebastian from Nov. 24-Feb 17.
