This display explores a range of approaches to drawing the body over the last 200 years. Modern artists have represented the human body in corporeal or abstract form, to address issues of gender, power and identity in their work. Paula Rego, for example, focuses almost exclusively on the - often sexualised - female body to examine women’s identity in society. Francis Bacon’s visceral treatment of flesh and expressive depiction of movement reflects his existentialist ideas about man. Tracey Emin represents her own body in emotional contexts, while Tony Bevan depersonalises his self-portraits with a distorted, abstract language.
