Following the success of the Leopold Museum's exhibition of male nudes last year, today the Musée d'Orsay in Paris opened Masculine / Masculine: The Nude Man in Art from 1800 to the Present Day (CLICK). It comes with the usual health warning: "Please note that some of the pieces presented in the exhibition may be shocking to some visitors (particularly children)." Knowing kids, I reckon they'll just fall about laughing, having whispered a few rude comments. Shown is Camille Bellanger's La mort d'Abel (1875).
