Since easel painting began, the figure of Eve has been found in the work of painters from Masaccio to Rubens, Michelangelo, Bosch and Brueghel. The Nude from Gauguin to Bonnard presents nearly 70 works from Symbolists, Nabis, Fauves, Cubists and Surrealists, including Gauguin, Bonnard, Redon, Matisse, Picasso, Rousseau, Giacometti and Chagall. The historical shifts in the depiction of Eve, and her continued relevance for art, are discussed in several essays.
