Power and Pathos. Bronze Sculpture of the Hellenistic World
FLORENCE  •  Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi  •  14 March - 21 June 2015
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 are displayed alongside portraits of historical figures. The show also allows visitors to learn about the production and casting processes and the finishing techniques adopted.
