The Renaissance & The Revival of Classical Antiquity
August 1, 2012 - February 24, 2013
Markell Gallery
Photography by Dennis Griggs, The Renaissance and the Revival of Classical Antiquity, Markell Gallery.

The installation in the  Markell Gallery explored 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 recreated a period in artistic history, pairing the finest examples of Bowdoin's Renaissance holdings alongside classical artifacts.
