When I see an unclothed woman, I do not see nudity; I see the beauty of nature. Nudity may have been the principal subject of art since prehistoric times, but spoiled by the ugly controversies, nude art even today faces the rage of the so-called protectors of righteousness. People mostly relate the exposure of the body with physical desire which in India equivalent is to a crime. While the ancient art and the nude carvings on the temples that have celebrated the female body are gone, these bodies are ripped apart, sexualized and objectified, and not celebrated as they should be.

Renaissance ushered in an uninhibited, though idealised, depiction of the body in Western art while traditional Indian art has celebrated the body as an object of beauty from ancient times, seen in the fresco paintings at sites such as Ajanta and the images of sensuality and erotica seen on numerous temple walls across the country, from Khajuraho to Konark. Bringing together an exciting range of styles and artistic explorations from a diverse group of over fifty Indian modernists, the exhibition showcases two hundred and fifty artworks. The artists range from those known for their exploration of sexual themes and the body, such as F. Souza, Laxma Goud, P. Husain or Ranbir Kaleka to a host of a very wide range of artists known otherwise for a different oeuvre that surprise with their engagement with the bare body — names such as K. Hebbar or the landscape artist Gopal Ghose. The range of expressions seem to reflect the various rasas or mood of traditional Indian thought — from the joyful, sorrowing, reflective and exultant to the repellant — proving the extraordinary draw the human body has always been to the visual artist. The works are presented within the categories of the academic study, the sensual and the erotic, the body in narrative, in anguish and of fantasy, and the abstracted and ritual body — to understand the wide range of how the naked body has been seen and rendered in art.
