Go, see, feel the world of art
File.1 Yokohama Museum of Art "Nude Exhibition"

Whether painting, sculpture, or photography, the art world and nudity are inextricably linked. Anyway, Greek sculpture, which can be said to be the origin of art, is one of the masterpieces of a beautiful male statue of a turtle. On the other hand, controversy about that "exposure degree" has not changed regardless of the east or west of the ocean.
That's why my curiosity was stimulated by the title of the “Nude Exhibition”, a straight-ball game, and I visited the Yokohama Museum of Art.

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

This is the only photographable work, Rodin's "Kiss".
It can be viewed from anywhere in 360 degrees, and how you cut it out is up to you. Each one is searching for his or her favorite angle and releasing the shutter many times. This scene itself is like art.
* Shooting may be canceled depending on the situation of congestion.

Someone said, "I cut a warm, soft body out of cold, hard marble." You want to touch the smooth skin, but of course, don't touch the exhibited works!

At the exhibition, you can see that nudes, which were allowed only as historical paintings on classical literature, myths, and the Bible, are being drawn with realistic themes over the times.
However, in the 20th century, when cubism, abstract expressions, and surrealism emerge, the simple question of "Is this sexy?" Amateur eyes do not even know where a woman is naked ...
Even though the human body doesn't change that much in 100 or 200 years, the artist's perspective is amazing. Before saying "I do not understand" or "I do not know", I was knocked down by the painters too free expression.

When you go around the venue and return to the entrance hall, you will find a spot where you can take a commemorative photo with Layton's "Psyche Bathing". There is a veil next to it, so take the same pose as the model and shoot upload to Instagram!

The museum shop has British-only exhibition-exclusive merchandise, such as tea and sweets, after the Nude Exhibition, a collection of British Tate.
We recommend "Nude exhibition" original mint candy. If you think "why?", Think of the hint that Rodin's "kiss" is in the packageTry it. The answer is at the venue.

Speaking of the fun of the Yokohama Museum of Art, there is an exhibition limited menu at the cafe on the first floor. I was also attracted to “Roast Beef Sandwich” using traditional British cuisine, but this time I ordered “milk tea” with a focus on afternoon tea. I am glad that there is a shortbread of gentle sweetness
By the way, specially blended teas and mugs for milk can be purchased at the special shop of the exhibition.
