“Power and Pathos. Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World”, exhibition catalogue by Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, Giunti Editore

Power and Pathos

Exhibition catalogue: Florence, Palazzo Strozzi, 14 March-21 June 2015. Organised by Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi, J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles and National Gallery of Art, Washington with the collaboration of Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici della Toscana. Starting 14 March 2015 Palazzo Strozzi in Florence will be hosting a major exhibition showcasing some of the ancient world’s most important masterpieces of sculpture with exhibits from leading Italian and international museums. The exhibition uses 50 bronze sculptures to tell the story of the spectacular artistic developments of the Hellenistic era throughout the Mediterranean basin. Under Alexander the Great Hellenistic sculpture saw the birth of a genre known as ”portraits of power”, but at the same time it also revolutionised the style of Classical art by imbuing its figures with pathos, or expressiveness. Monumental statues of gods, athletes and heroes will be displayed alongside portraits of historical figures, in a journey allowing visitors to explore the fascinating stories of these masterpieces’ discovery while also probing the production and casting processes and the finishing techniques adopted.
