Exhibition: “Power and Pathos: Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenist World.”

The Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi has opened another fascinating exhibition called “Power and Pathos: Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenist World,” open until June 21, 2015.



The exhibition tells the story of artistic developments in the Hellenist age, from the 4th to 1st centuries BCE, achieved through the use of bronze, which made it possible to create dynamic, full-figure statues and bring naturalism to their portraits, focusing on psychological expression. Statues of gods, athletes, and heroes are masterpieces of antiquity, brought from leading Italian and international archeological museums, such as the British Museum in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Vatican Museums.




Visitors will marvel to learn how these masterpieces were found, where they were placed, and especially the techniques used to make them.
The exhibition is organized in theme-based areas. Each room’s title clearly conveys the statues it contains, and taken together, they make us part of the power and expressiveness that that artists from such a distant time in history bring back to life for us.
