Event description

Description

The Society for the History of Collecting is deligthed to host 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 will be 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).

Please join us for what should be a fascinating discussion.

This event has been organised by Dr Tom Stammers, University of Durham.
