American Michelangelo

Hiram Powers - The Greek Slave (1844) 2 viewsIt always surprises me when art galleries or museums go to all the trouble and expense of organising an exhibition, then forget to remind their webmasters to move details from the "forthcoming exhibitions" page to the "current exhibitions" page. So, despite the fact that Hiram Powers: Genius in Marble opened at the Taft Museum of Art in Cincinnati on 18 May, the title link takes you to its "upcoming" page. Oh well. If you're in the neighbourhood, now's your chance to view 40 works by the "American Michelangelo". Go for it. (N.B. I've shown Hiram's daydream of bondage The Greek Slave (1844), because it's his most famous work. Don't expect to find it on display. I'm still hoping to find a third angle for a Coxsoft Art triple-view graphic.)
