Defining Beauty

On 26 March The British Museum in London opens Defining Beauty: the body in ancient Greek art in the Sainsbury Exhibitions Gallery. Over 120 objects will be featured, from white marble statues to ancient vases, all focusing on the human body. Shown is the world-famous Discobolus (Discus Thrower) a Roman copy of a bronze original of the 5th century BC, probably by Myron of Eleutherae. It shows the sophistication of ancient Greek art. Admission is astronomical; £16.50 adult and nothing off for silver surfers (CLICK).
