Sir Gerald Festus Kelly (1879-1972)

Nude Study from the exhibition "The Art of The Nude" at the Newport Museum and Art Gallery, South Wales.

The painting caused a controversy when it was first purchased in 1947. Known as the "Newport Nude," a local bishop and others objected to its display.

Here is an essay on the exhibition by John Wilson.
