Notes

Staff Picks:

 

Mia Borman, Marketing Manager: "The nude has always been a painter’s obsession. Some of history’s most impactful paintings depict the female nude. From Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus and Manet’s Olympia, to Modigliani’s Reclining Nude and Henri Matisse’s Blue Nude (Souvenir de Biskra). Broadley’s contemporary nude bathing in the sun brings me so much joy - painted in the warm nostalgic colours of the 70s. I admire her peaceful disposition; comfortable in her skin and soaking in the summer light."
