M of Childhood Nudes

What? Nudes at the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green, London? Yes. Prim and proper nudes, of course. A Century of Olympic Posters opened today and continues until 7 September. It's surprising how many of them feature a naked male athlete, such as the discus thrower on this poster for the London 1948 Summer Olympiad. It is the iconic image of the games, but nobody has ever presented it as well as did Leni Riefenstahl. The price is right for kids and adults: free. Bear it in mind for the school summer holidays.
