The cast of Michelangelo’s David was a gift to Queen Victoria from Leopold II, Grand Duke of Tuscany, but was presented to the South Kensington Museum (now V&A) on its arrival in 1857. Viewing David at the museum after installation, the Queen was reportedly shocked by his nudity, so a proportional fig leaf was commissioned. Hung from two strategically placed hooks, it was affixed to the figure for royal visits until the early 20th century.

About the Exhibition
Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear
At a moment of unprecedented creativity in men's fashion and reflection on gender, this exhibition explored how designers, tailors and artists – and their clients and sitters – have constructed and performed masculinity, and unpicked it at the seams.
