Degas and the Nude

October 9, 2011 - February 5, 2012
Gund Gallery, LG31

The nude figure was critical to the art of Edgar Degas from the beginning of his career in the 1850s until the end of his working life, but the subject has never before been explored in a Museum exhibition. “Degas and the Nude,” co-organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Musée d'Orsay in Paris, will feature paintings, pastels, drawings, prints, and sculpture, and calls attention to the evolution of the treatment of the nude from Degas's early years, through his triumphant offerings from the 1880s and 1890s, to the last decades of his working career.

Aphrodite and the Gods of Love

October 26, 2011 - February 20, 2012
Torf Gallery, 184

Known today as the goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite, or Venus as she was known to the Romans, was one of the most powerful ancient Greek divinities and a favorite subject in ancient art. This is the first exhibition about the powerful goddess that both ancient writers and artists described as complex and even dangerous. Through the presentation of 150 Greek and Roman works of art, “Aphrodite and the Gods of Love,” which includes spectacular loans from Rome and Naples, reveals the most popular ancient goddess in her roles as adulterous seductress, instigator of sexual desire, mother to mischievous Eros and sexual outliers Hermaphrodite and Priapos, patroness of brides, and much more.
