Notes and Editorial Reviews

he era of Queen Victoria, who sat on the British throne 1837-1901, is always held to have been one of extreme prudishness and propriety. Yet it was the artists of the time who created, from scratch, a tradition of the nude in British art.

How did the Victorians square this with their moral anxiety?

This documentary explores the development of the genre in Britain, placing it in the social and historical context of the day and giving a fascinating insight into the mores and psyche of a bygone age.
