"Throughout the history of painting and sculpture, no muse has exerted more influnce than the artist's model. This program studies the role of the human form in art, focusing on the complex relationships between famous male artists and their female subjects. Works featuring the male figure are also examined. Discussing numerous artistic milestones -- including classical Greek statuary, Masaccio's revival of human-centered themes, Botticelli's ethereal Primavera and Venus, and the reclining nudes of Titian, Velázquez, Renoir and Matisse -- the program explores the mystical, erotic, and purely formal inspiration that models have produced."
