The Renaissance & The Revival of Classical Antiquity
February 25, 2010 - February 17, 2013
Markell Gallery
Installation view of "The Renaissance and the Revival of Classical Antiquity"

The recently reinstalled Northend gallery explores the Renaissance and its relationship to ancient Greek and Roman culture.  Artists and craftsmen of the Renaissance drew inspiration directly from works of antiquity, often working alongside these objects in their studios.  

The Renaissance & the Revival of Classical Antiquity recreates a period in artistic history, pairing the finest examples of Bowdoin's Renaissance holdings alongside classical artifacts.
