Art Critic - The Place of the Nude is a sketch that appears in "Full Frontal Nudity," the eighth episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus.


An art critic (Michael Palin) is caught ogling a nude painting and begins a presentation on the history of nudity in art. A girl (Katya Wyeth) enters, the critic calls her "your grace," and she responds that she is his Elsie, which he states to be a terrible joke. Upset, the girl states that it was her only line. The sketch then cuts to pastures and the camera pans over to the art critic strangling his wife, then a groom (Terry Jones) carrying his bride (Carol Cleveland) into the next sketch.
