A day of presentations exploring representations of the undraped body outside of Europe during the period from about 1400 until 1700. Leading international scholars in West African, Persian, Japanese, South Asian, Mayan, and Incan cultures discuss the varied attitudes toward the depiction, significance, and reception of the unclothed body. This conference complements the exhibition  The Renaissance Nude, which explores the artistic and cultural factors that led to the rise of naturalistically represented nudes in Italy, France, Germany, and the Netherlands from 1400 - 1530.
