23 May 2019: Book Launch for The Charisma and Collecting of Classical Art
Room G7, Senate House, London WC1E 7HU
Thursday, 23 May 2019, 18:00 – 20:30
On Thursday 23rd May the Society for the History of Collecting hosted an event to celebrate Classical Art: A Life History from Antiquity to the Present by Dr. Caroline Vout (Department of Classics, University of Cambridge). Published by Princeton in 2018, the book offers a provocative reading of the reception of classical art and sculpture over two millennia. Dr Vout was joined in conversation by a distinguished panel of scholars and curators to reflect on the processes by which the art of antiquity has been continuously assembled and disassembled, reinterpreted and translated over the centuries: Dr. Ian Jenkins OBE (Senior Curator of Greek and Roman Antiquities, British Museum), Dr. Bruce Boucher (Director of the Sir John Soane Museum), Professor Caroline van Eck (Department of Art History, University of Cambridge) and Dr. Eloisa Dodero (Capitoline Museum, Rome).
