Nicole R. Myers, Barbara Thomas Lemmon Senior Curator of European Art at the Dallas Museum of Art, will present a special evening lecture titled "Naked vs. Nude: Bodies and Bathers in Nineteenth-Century France." This lecture is presented in conjunction with the special exhibition "Renoir: The Body, The Senses."

With the advent of Realism in the 1850s, a challenge arose in the depiction of the female nude, once exclusively the domain of mythological goddesses and Biblical heroines. This lecture will explore the fraught, contradictory and shifting rules governing the depiction of the female nude in 19th-century French painting from Ingres to Renoir.
