From Press Release:
The human image: Masterpieces of figurative art from the British Museum

The human figure has been a central theme of visual art throughout history. It is the primordial image, created in a boundless variety of formats and used to express fundamental ideas concerning the human condition. This compelling new exhibition comprises a superb selection of figural artworks from the collection of the British Museum, including many renowned masterpieces.

Combining visual spectacle with profound insights, The human image explores the varying ways that artists of different cultural traditions have represented the human body and imbued it with meaning.

The exhibition approaches the subject of the human figure in a fresh, accessible and exciting way. Iconic works from ancient civilisations are juxtaposed with striking modern artworks; imposing large-scale paintings and sculptures are set against more intimate, personal images; diverse artistic practices and cultural traditions are compared and contrasted.
