Her meeting at a dance-club with society osteopath Stephen Ward drew her into fashionable circles. A shooting incident between two of her other lovers caused the press to investigate her, revealing that her affairs could be threatening national security. In the House of Commons , Profumo denied any improper conduct but later admitted that he had lied. This incident discredited the Conservative government of Harold Macmillan in , in what became known as the Profumo affair. Keeler was alleged to have been a prostitute - which was not a criminal offence.

Agnolo Bronzino, Saint Sebastian detail , c. Trace the development of the nude through some of the great masters of the Renaissance. The 15th and 16th centuries were a pivotal time for the nude in Western art. A renewed interested in ancient Greek and Roman art brought the human body to the forefront of artistic innovation. Artists on both sides of the Alps — Perugino, Pollaiuolo and Gossaert among others — were copying from classical models, experimenting with naturalistic approaches, as well as exploring new, non-religious subject matter. At the same time, the nude was transforming Christian art, encouraging modern and dynamic representations of age-old themes, from the story of Adam and Eve to the crucifixion. This spectacular exhibition explores these important changes in a selection of exquisite works. From full-scale paintings to jewel-like illustrations, bronze statuettes to anatomical studies, they contrast idealised beauty with the ageing body, and public images with more intimate, private works. Together, they offer an insight into a visual tradition that became central to European art, which still resonates with artists and audiences today.

And as an outsider it will be obvious to you what's going on, but here's an awesome breakdown from a couple that flipped from "we go to church every week - we will write a Mormon blog" to resigning over the new policy banning children of gays all over the NY Times this month and something that is upsetting many staunch church members a few days ago. But I wish he would call or text me or maybe make a sweet gesture every once in awhile.
