Portrait of a Nude

by Laura Shamas

8 -12 May 2018

A fascinating exploration of issues of artistic inspiration, history and censorship. Spanning 193 years and based on real events, this play in four parts traces the history of the social and political responses to Goya's masterpiece 'Naked Maja' from the time of its inception in 1798 Spain, to America and the 1991 sexual harassment case involving the work. Although our response to art is personal and subjective, how much of our reaction is really based on the 'politically correct' values of our times?
