Neoclassicism


As it's the weekend and snowing, I thought you might have time to watch a video on Neoclassicism. Beauty And Revolution: Neoclassicism 1770-1820 opened at the St├Ądel Museum in Frankfurt this week. The video publicises the exhibition. It's in German with legible English subtitles. The approximately 100 exhibits in this major survey include statues by Antonio Canova and Bertel Thorvaldsen as well as paintings by Jacques-Louis David. So, well worth a view.

Thanks for that Ian. It was fun trying to identify the themes and the sculptors.

Hi, Kris

Glad you enjoyed it. Shame about the subtitles, but I thought it was still worth posting. It looks like a good show.
