North & South - - Letters -

The hu­man form has cap­ti­vated artists – a and their au­di­ences – through­out his­tory, whether by con­vey­ing ideals of beauty, spir­i­tu­al­ity or push­ing bound­aries. The Body Laid Bare: Master­pieces from The Tate (Auck­land Art Gallery, March 18July 16) spans the past two cen­turies, bring­ing to­gether some of the lu­mi­nar­ies of art: J.M.W. Turner, Pierre Bon­nard, Pablo Pi­casso, Henri Matisse, Louise Bour­geois, Cindy Sher­man, Sarah Lu­cas and many more. The show’s cen­tre­piece is Au­guste Rodin’s mar­ble sculp­ture “The Kiss”, which is trav­el­ling out­side Europe for the first time.
