Classical Greece Search

If you want to avoid queues at The British Museum, use the Montague Place entrance and climb the stairs to the first floor. Showing in Room 90 is In search of Classical Greece: travel drawings of Edward Dodwell and Simone Pomardi 1805–1806 (CLICK). Seventy never-before-seen views conveying the beauty of the Greek landscape and picturesque ruins of Classical civilisation have been selected from the archive of The Packard Humanities Institute, with additions from The British Museum's own collection. Shown is Simone Pomardi's A Hill of the Filopappou, Athens (1804). This might not be in the exhibition, but it was too good to resist. The exhibition runs until 28 April, admission free.
