The Legacy of Homer: Four Centuries of Art from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris
UNITED STATES
PRINCETON, NEW JERSEY  •  Princeton University Art Museum  •  Ongoing
 

The shared exhibition with the The Dahesh Museum of Art in New York aims to provides a singular experience for anyone drawn to the tales of gods and mortals and to the rich legacy of classical literature in French art.

Presented first in Paris in autumn 2004, some 133 objects are divided between The Dahesh Museum of Art and Princeton University Art Museum. Organized by École curator Dr. Emmanuel Schwartz, and coordinated at the Dahesh by Dr. Roger Diederen, this project explores the impact of the renowned Greek poet Homer upon visual artists of the 17th-, 18th-, 19th- and 20th-century France by examining the École’s little-known, collection of paintings and sculptures.

The exhibition is accompanied by a 384-page catalogue, co-published by the Dahesh and Princeton with Yale University Press.
