[PAST EVENT] National Gallery of Art Field Trip - Saturday, February 27

February 27, 2016
7am - 11pm
Washington, D.C.
Power and Pathos presents some 50 bronze sculptures and related works, dating from the fourth century BC to the first century AD. They span the Hellenistic period when the art and culture of Greece spread throughout the Mediterranean and Near Eastern lands once conquered by Alexander the Great. Through the medium of bronze, artists were able to capture the dynamic realism, expression, and detail that characterize the new artistic goals of the era. This exhibition features works from renowned archaeological museums from around the world. As only a small fraction of ancient bronzes survives--most were melted down over the centuries--this exhibition offers an unprecedented opportunity to appreciate the importance of bronze in antiquity and the innovations of Hellenistic sculptors.
