What is the point of looking at art naked?

I have just read your article on nudists at Jerwood Gallery and have a question – why?

The rest of us wear clothes on such outings. Naturism is a choice, and I don’t have a problem with that – but why naked going round the gallery? Is there a different appreciation at looking at the artwork in the buff?

If I was to suddenly bare all on a visit, I would be hauled off by the police!

I still can’t get my head around it – sorry!
