No clothes in the museum, follow the first nudist visit in Spain

The Cerdanyola Art Museum organizes the first nudist visit in Spain, as the Palais de Tokyo in Paris or Leopold in Vienna have already done.

“I didn’t even do topless”, confesses nudist Nadia. She only wears glasses and slippers. Two Roman sculptures from the first century appear behind her, representing the god Bacchus and a hermaphrodite, also naked. Nadia, a Venezuelan in her early twenties, came with two friends from Portugal and Brazil (“they had gone to nudist beaches”) to the Cerdanyola del Vallès Art Museum to see The Naked Man. Stripping the archetypes of masculinity. It is Saturday afternoon and the museum closed its temporary exhibition for the first naturist visit in Spain, following those who organized the Grand Palais in Paris in 2018 or Leopold in Vienna in 2013.

My life as Pablo Picasso’s muse

I was born in Paris in 1934, the middle child between two brothers and of artist parents. My English-born mother was an Impressionist painter and my French father an influential art dealer and painter.
