The world of art that you can go, see, and feel
File.1 Museum at Yokohama Museum of Art "Nude Exhibition"

Whether it's painting, sculpture, or photography, I think the world of art and nudity are inseparably related. After all, the Greek sculpture, which can be said to be the origin of art, is one of the representative works of the beautiful male image of soft-shelled turtle. On the other hand, the controversy over "exposure" has not changed at any time, regardless of the east or west of the West.
That's why I was curious about the straight-ball title "Nude Exhibition" and went to the Museum Shop at Yokohama Museum of Art.

The exhibition follows the transition of nudity according to the times and themes.

This is Rodin's "Kiss", the only work that can be photographed.
You can see it from anywhere in 360 degrees and how to cut it is up to you. Each one searches for his or her favorite angle and releases the shutter many times. This scene itself is like art.

Someone said, "I cut out a warm and soft body from the cold and hard marble," and that's exactly what it is. You'll want to touch the smooth skin, but of course, don't touch the exhibited works!

At the exhibition, it is clear that nudes, which were only allowed as historical paintings based on classical literature, myths, and the Bible, are being drawn with realistic themes as the times progress.
However, when cubism, abstract expression, and surrealism emerged in the 20th century, the simple question "Is this sexy?" To the untrained eye, I don't even know where a woman is naked ...
The artist's point of view is amazing, even though the human body does not change so much in 100 or 200 years. Before saying "I understand" or "I don't understand," I was knocked down by the painters' overly liberal expressions.

After going around the venue and returning to the entrance hall, there is a spot where you can take a commemorative photo with Leighton's "Psyche Bathing". There is a veil on the side, so take the same pose as the model and shoot upload to Instagram!

At the museum shop, you can find British-style exhibition-limited goods such as tea and sweets, named after the "Nude Exhibition", a collection of British Tate.
We recommend the original mint candy from the "Nude Exhibition". If you're wondering "why?", Think of Rodin's "kiss" in the package as a hint.Try it. The answer is at the venue.

And the fun of the Museum at Yokohama Museum of Art is the exhibition-only menu at the cafe on the 1st floor. I was also attracted to the "roast beef sandwich" that uses traditional English food, but this time I ordered "milk tea" with a pretentious afternoon tea. I am glad that it has a shortbread with a gentle sweetness
By the way, a special blend of tea and mugs that go well with milk can be purchased at the exhibition's special shop.
